BTW, to clear up confusion, the titles were listed chronologically, not in order of merit. We cheated the chronology on the last one so ha.
That's reminded me, there was a brief glimpse of Dark Souls in it too that had to go walkabouts due to time.
Night owls without YouTube can catch / record a repeat on 4Seven tonight at 2.05am and also the more humane time of 9pm this Saturday.
Things we sadly had to cut from the games show for time: Walking Dead, a discussion of 'God Games', a bit on Hitchhiker's Guide & Gone Home.
Thanks for nice comments on games doc. But you ought to direct them at @Tuckface74
who produced it, along w/ great and knowledgable team.
How Videogames Changed the World is now available on C4's YouTube 4oD channel: youtube.com/watch?v=sWbr5z…
BTW, theme music was Jonathan Dunn's theme for the Gameboy version of Robocop: youtube.com/watch?v=NJ-02R…
Now you really should watch Indie Game the Movie because it's very very good.
THANK YOU co-writers @Jam_sponge @Carachan1
(& a special apology to you Log for credits-mispelling SNAFU) #C4videogames
Hope everyone enjoyed my brilliant Scottish accent there. #C4videogames
Righto, our games show is starting on C4 now. So fuck all that Factor stuff off. #C4videogames

Reckon they did a good job with this: youtube.com/watch?v=LVGD5s…
Annoyed about missing out on Black Friday. So I made the kids fight over an old telly, then called the police
So yes: tonight! 9pm! Channel 4! How Videogames Changed the World. Also featuring @wossy @daraobriain @SusanCalman @serafinowicz
And here he is more recently, meeting 50 Cent: youtube.com/watch?v=XYKoRv…
Bit of nostalgia for you in advance of How Videogames Changed the World (Tonight, C4, 9pm): youtube.com/watch?v=yQeB-i… #C4videogames
He also doesn't know a thing about videogames, which I'm trying to promote in advance of a television programme #scum
He virtually slammed the door in my face. Some story about going home to relieve the babysitter. Bloke lives in a fucking BUBBLE these days.
For the record, he did not look "depressed and / or fat". He looked like a movie star playing Stewart Lee. Reckon he's had surgery too.
To be clear, I love Stewart Lee and everything he does. But if he doesn't clear up this whole Addison Lee thing, he's fucking dead to me.
Stewart Lee's comedy vehicle...” PRODUCT PLACEMENT
Stewart Lee, Addison Lee #norelation
?” Good point. Can we be certain there's no familial link? No. We cannot.
Cannot believe I saw underground comedy ombudsman Stewart Lee catching an Addison Lee cab earlier this evening. With THEIR policies. Awful.
Just did a classic trip-while-tweeting-and-walking. Probably broke, like, seven toes.
Here's me talking to @keefstuart
of Das Guardian about the cavernous gulf between games and TV: theguardian.com/technology/201…
- I DEFY you to tell me THIS isn't better than 'real Lego': youtube.com/watch?v=9xAIpV…
What I'm saying is this: I may not make much sense.
I also fell for the old 'being interviewed while playing a game' scenario, which is like conducting a phonecall while spinning plates.
Just recorded a bit for @Channel4News
talking about games with @jonsnowC4
but disgraced self by not knowing how to eject a disc on the PS4.
Sneak preview snippet of How Videogames Changed the World: youtube.com/watch?v=9xAIpV…
Just walked into a communal bog where someone had taken a shit so toxic I felt like the first man on the scene after the Fukushima meltdown.
How Videogames Changed the World, this Saturday, 9pm on C4 will be followed by grrrreat documentary Indie Game: The Movie.
The reason Saatchi's evidence is so devastating for Nigella's court case is that he's an objective contributor with no axe to grind.
That new 'walkie talkie' skyscraper in London's just gone in at no.7 on my list of landmarks you wouldn't want to unexpectedly sit on.
2 HOURS of gameshit on your TV this Sat, covering everything from Pong to The Last of Us. You won't guess what the last game on the list is.
Just finished voiceover for the games doc this Saturday. Managed to sneak the word 'shitifying' in. Which is pretty shitifying itself.
Got a date for the games show. I'll be explaining 'How Videogames Changed the World' on C4, Sat 30th Nov from 9pm.
Next Grand Theft Auto better have the mayor of Toronto as a playable character.
British Telecom. British fucking Telecom.
So I'm fronting a one-off 2-hour doc called How Videogames Changed the World on C4 in late Nov. Everything from Pong to Papers, Please...
Pretty sure I can forgive GTAV this lengthy install. The anticipation reminds me of the days of youtu.be/V0EfycbDhiw
Here's an hour-long video of the interview I did with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan a few weeks back: youtu.be/lXVJ8eRIRrc
Some swearylolz for your Friday afternoon... Right Said Fred redone for the new millennium. youtu.be/AFRdzFjnUiE?a
Ray Dolby, inventor of hiss reduction, Ret In Peae.
... and the cast includes the excellent @andynyman
as Winston Churchill, which I HAVE to see.
Haven't seen it yet, but Peaky Blinders (BBC2, 9pm) has had strong write ups, comes from Otto Bathurst who directed ep1 of Black Mirror...
