    Charlie Brooker: Videogames Changed the World

    Did anyone else catch this on Saturday? Very well done I thought and only a 'bit' sweary in places, so NSFW.
    Note that this is a new program and not his older series 'How Videogames Changed the World', which you can see on YouTube. If you are a non-UK EduGeeker it is well worth a watch, but be warned it too is NSFW.

    Charlie Brooker: Videogames Changed the World - 4oD - Channel 4

    I did note that they didn't swear during the Nintendo segment, but towards the end of the program when he was talking about gaming in the future he showed only 2 consoles. The PS4 and XBox One. No Wii U.
    Anyway, It's on 4OD (see link) and is well worth a watch if you missed it.

    I missed this because, ironically[?], I was busy playing Assassin's Creed 4.

    good program surprised by the last "game" but i suppose he has a very good point. AS to the wii U isnt it a total flop selling less than the wii even now? As said could of done without the swearing wasnt really needed.

    I thought it was good. Nothing new revealed but interesting nonetheless. Also recorded "Indie Game: The Movie" on after it but haven't watched it yet.

    Bit annoyed about Indie Game as I'd brought it a couple of months back!

    I used to like him on newswipe but he's a bit of a one trick pony.... nice bird though.. definitely hitting above his weight.

    I hope it's like "Zero Punctuation"... Brooker seems like he'd be like Yahtzee.

    No one's quiet like Yahtzee - very entertaining. Have you seen his Ryhmedown's with Jim Stirling?

    Pffft, compared to Charlie Brooker, Yahtzee is a rank amateur. Charlie Brooker has been like that since his PC Zone days.
