New documentary about gaming coming from Charlie Brooker on Channel 4 at the end of November. Hopefully as good as his Gameswipe program for BBC4.

I also hope its not just a recycled version of Gameswipe with added celebrities.

Should be interesting anyway.

The title sounds like its going to be a positive look at games though, nothing wrong with that - but it doesnt sound like Gameswipe.

Looking forward to it, wish it was in mid December though, that way he can talk about both new console launches

It would feel weird watching a documentary about how gaming changed the world that could potentially be out of date before it airs

Big Brooker fan so looking forward to this.
(Interestingly, its part of a Video Games Night on Channel 4- can we expect the return of GamesMaster?)

Looking forward to seeing what else is on C4's Videogame Night. A countdown of the best games or characters perhaps?

Very interested in this. Big fan of both Charlie Brooker, and the guy who has since revealed himself as one of the lead writers.

Can't wait!

Unfortunately I doubt it... Maybe a clip show or a version minus Dominik, seeing as he's so busy with his radio work in Canada...

...and the guy who has since revealed himself as one of the lead writers.
I missed that, who is it? (mind you, aren't all the writers clearly listed in the credits...?)

Matt Lees confirmed it this afternoon/evening on his Twitter here, works for Videogamer amongst other stuff.

Knowing Channel 4 if they brought back a GamesMaster special for this games night it would be some 8 out of 10 cats do GamesMaster with Jimmy Carr

The dark days of Gamesmaster.

It would be interesting to see the old classic GM format done with todays games and systems. Seeing somebody ask the GM for a cheat code in this day and age would be funny

The one I remember most is Down, Y, Down, Down, Y (Diddy) for Donkey Kong Country on the SNES where you play all the bonus stages

Streetfighter 2 (SNES):

down, R, up, L, Y, B, X, A at the Capcom logo to get the increased speed + boss character options
