Well this is a bit angering...

Some TV show on G4 is apparently going to go into an arcade and destroy a ton of old arcade machines for no good reason. Their reasoning? "It takes too much brainpower to build things". Real quote there and I think if the trailer is any indication that holds up pretty nicely. Looks like mostly non-working conversions thankfully, but that mint Virtual On shown worries me. Hopefully they wouldn't dare to go that far... right? I'm hoping the picture later on with nothing but rubble isn't any indication. But if they did... I'm calling Jaguarandi.



So, I mean really, what is the logic here? Surely a channel centered around gamers wants to see a wrecking crew destroy perfectly-working gaming history, right? I just don't get it at all.

Yeah I saw the preview for that. Really pissed me off. They even trash a Virtua Racing twin cab which are very rare (and I have one).

Are you kidding me? Would they go that far? Indiana Jones might as well blow up the Ark of the Covenant!

Well this just shows how bad G4 has gotten. Great message to be sending to the youth of today, just smash things up so people think your cool lol. If you watch the trailer you can tell it's all staged and bad at that.
