In a surprise announcement today comes word that ABC2's Good Game has been cancelled after ten years on the air -- making it Australia's longest running television show about video games. The official statement cites the show's two main presenters leaving to pursue other opportunities and "changes in the way audiences are choosing to get their information about gaming" as the reasons for the cancellation.
In a spot of good news, the series younger-skewed off-shoot Spawn Point will remain in production. Unfortunately the online version of the main show, Pocket, has also been cancelled.
As per the statement the two presenters in question have of course been confirmed as Stephen 'Bajo' O'Donnell and Stephanie 'Hex' Bendixsen. This is sad news as the series recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.

She must have been responsible for the spilling of more seed than Muhammad Ali at a bird feeder.
The show sucked when Junglist was fired - I stopped watching
But Hex was hot, it was too distracting.

Not everyone who plays games is teenager.
Kind of surprised there arent more gaming shows.
Nearly every guy I know plays some game.

More importantly I like that they gave exposure to local content and covered Australian based issues like connectivity and pricing.
I really don't see it as a good thing that the ABC no longer has any content covering the gaming industry, seems like a massive step backwards to me but who knows, maybe they will develop a new show to make up for it.

Hmm maybe not. Bajo, gets quite a lot of film (TV) work apparently and I think he might be heading in that direction. He does a lot of behind the scenes stuff as well, writing, directing and such...

She will be a morning show presenter very soon, seems they have good career progressions. just like Sam Armitage or Rebecca Gibney.

did you intentionally pick the two presenters supposedly who slept with the boss?
