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.
