Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

How Video Games Changed the World airs on Saturday at 9pm, C4. To whet your appetite, here's a video of Charlie trying to teach Jon Snow, who has never played any sort of video game before, how to play PS4. It's... interesting.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

He was complaining about that on Twitter last night. How fusty does Jon Snow come across in that video? It's like late 80s/early 90s games reporting there.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

I thought Jon was just trying to rile Charlie up at first, but by the end it genuinely seemed like he didn't want to be there. I've seen people defending him by saying he's a news anchor and was interrogating Charlie as he would a politician, but if that's the case then he was doing a really poor job of it. How many times did Charlie start that sentence about the interface problem with games only to be cut short so Jon could complain about some random nonsense in the game? If the interviewee can't get his point across because the interviewer mistook a megaphone for a gun then the interviewer was doing a bad job.

Typical old fogey response to things they don't understand... Digital!? why would I invest in a new phonograph when it won't even play my classic shellack?

Poor journalism from Snow, though. At least do five minutes of research beforehand.

Some people just can't seem to process video games at all. It's really quite odd. As a radio host, I remember, a couple years ago, in some kind of quiz, that I asked a lady a question about Pac-Man. She immediately panicked and said "Oh I know nothing about these modern things!" to which I replied "Modern things? It came out in 1980, more than thirty years ago", a point she found utterly unconvincing.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

HAHA, that was brilliant, Brooker was on top form, so many great one liners, i am still chuckling over the pope resigning one, he used the withdraw method, pulled out early and left a big mess behind him. lol

And good news, weekly wipe is back starting the 9th of Jan.
