Australian videogame program Good Game has a new host. Her “gamer name” is Hex (for the uniformed all the Good Game hosts use nicknames) and I’d just like to say off the bat I don’t have a problem with her. Her hosting sounded a bit forced and unnatural but she’ll probably get better with time. More importantly she appears passionate.
The problem is the nature of the previous host’s departure. Read here for the full story.
For five seasons Good Game has slowly built itself up from extremely humble beginnings to well something slightly higher than those beginnings. Sure it’s camp, cheesy and looks like it was shot by stoner film students but it’s the best show about videogames we’ve ever had in this country.
Good Game has done an incredible job of representing the scene. Whether it’s talking to local developers big and small or getting the word out about our nation’s pro gamers and chiptune artists Good Game has been fulfilling a valuable service to the community.
I’m sure it will continue to do so but it’s sad to see that they’ll do it without Junglist leading the charge. He’s been there since day one and for him to be forced out this way is disgusting.
Edit: Jesus this is getting nasty.
