Jeff On X-Play Tonight

A quick notice for those of you with television sets.

Hey, if you're within the broadcasting range of G4, you might want to catch X-Play tonight. I'll be on it discussing all of the games that keep getting delayed from Q4 2009 to Q1 2010 and beyond.

The first airing happens in around 30 minutes, at 3:30 Pacific, 6:30 Eastern. You'll need to check your local listings for more details, as it all depends on whether you have cable or satellite and all that "you might get the east coast feed on the west coast, we're not sure" jazz.

Here's a clip from one of the last times I was on. Seeing it now makes me glad that I didn't wear the same shirt this time... it was in there, in the closet, calling out to me. But I held strong. I HELD STRONG.

  

So there you have it! X-Play! With Adam and Morgan! Tonight! Catch it! 
 
Update! In case you can't catch it on a television, here's the clip from G4's site:

Current Blogger ? Realy ? What to hell is wrong with this dude. He just called the single unbiased, reliable gaming news site a blog. If i was Jeff i think i would comment on this. Since g4 lost balls looooong time ago ( if it ever had any ).

@Nzwei: dude, that's the old video from last year. The new one is below that one. :P

Awesome interview! If only we could have a decent game out every month, ohhh what a world that would be.

Wonderful improvisation!
Not overdone, clear and funny.

My man Jeff telling it like it is.

It's a struggle in my mind!!! 
 
Lol, you nearly killed Sessler at the end there. God I hate Sessler. I agree though, I really wanted Dark Void but if previous Capcom new IPs are anything to go by in recent years (Dead Rising, Lost Planet etc) it could do with the extra time. 
 
Very good interview.

Jeff is actually one of the greatest interviewee's I've ever seen in terms of video game talk. Always professional, always well presented. Loved the ending - Nice reppin' the Giant Bomb.

Great Interview Jeff!

Posted by Impossibilium

now if G4 could just show Xplay each day and then go off the air, it would be a much better channel.

Posted by Mads76

Haha, sweet sweet interview JG!!

Edited by Sanj

It must feel good to be Jeff Gerstmann of GiantBomb.com!...rather than Jeff Gerstmann, blogger. :P

I wonder how he managed to get it wrong.. they've known each other since the begining of Gamespot

Awesome, awesome interview. You always handle these really well, Jeff! Good answers, and the ending was hilarious. :D

" Wow that video seems old, Giantbomb wasnt even mentioned in the slightest form. "
I don't know if you are being ironic, bu they announced him as Jeff from giantbomb.com, he was wearing the logo in plain sight and the text said "Co-Founder, giantbomb.com". I think that's more than enough PR.

Great interview Jeff!

Edited by ahoodedfigure

I didn't realize this was an issue :)  I've seen way too many games be released as the equivalent of paid betas for me to get all entitlement-crazy when they don't release on time.  Whatever disappointment I have is brief if I let it die.  Unless they make drastic changes to the game that mess up whatever magic was there before, it's going to be better.  
 
I just wonder if most of the rest of the people really think it's a non-issue, or if they're actually responding to some sort of trend out there.  I never really paid that much attention to actual release dates, since my life doesn't depend upon what month a frigging game gets released.
 
And as far as coming out early 2010, they might even hit the exchange season, when everyone gets rid of stuff they don't want and gets stuff they actually wanted...

You are like a beautiful flower, Jeff. Don't change a thing.

Posted by Damian

I'm dreaming of the 'one-great-game-a-month' world too.

Posted by jhosaphat

Jeff was awesome!

Edited by Mjolnir

I like how they showed the God of War 3 footage when Jeff says "bloodbath". Pretty funny

Posted by TyphoonSwell

This is probably the only time I've willingly watched a segment of X-Play.
