GMTV 4

Dan Eggers, producer of GMTV, has just released episode 4 of the series.

The episode can be downloaded here, and a small review on the show can be found below:

This episode includes significant improvements in the graphics and animation department as well as just over 20 minutes worth of great content including: news, reviews, coding tips and more. In comparison to previous episodes, this current show was carried out in much more professional manner and does not include the swearing or unplanned/unrehearsed segments evident in earlier shows.

The only major criticism I can add is the fact that the ‘script’ Dan was referring to in the News section of the show was far off camera so that Dan’s eyes were often looking at the corner of the screen rather than the camera itself. It also sometimes felt as if Dan was reading rather than delivering the news. Other than that, apart from a couple of word fumbles which could have been re-recorded, it was pretty decent quality and is worth a watch.

In addition to the episode, GMTV also revamped their website with a completely new design.

GMTV Episode

The long-awaited release of GMTV Episode 1 has finally arrived, and it doesn’t disappoint.

Despite many technical setbacks and lots of public skepticism, Eggers and Revel finally came through with lots of great content. The show’s production is of semi-professional quality, and the segments fit together fairly well. The main problem so far seems to be a disconnect between the verbal reviews and the numerical scores, which seem wildly different at times.

The community response has been mixed, with compliments such as:

“Very interesting I love the show” -Fox USA

“Wow, that was a lot better than I thought. The reviews were decent, the quality was fine, and your speech was good.” -Mordi

And some healthy criticism such as:

“The worst part about it was the rating you gave. Like someone else mentioned, you verbally tore the game apart in most aspects, yet still gave it a 4/5. Yes, it’s an enjoyable game… But realize that the rating system should cover the worst GM games ever made, and also some of the best. There are some games out there that completely wipe Gravitouch off the map in terms of graphics, fun factor, sound, and much more, yet only have the possibility of getting 1 more point.” -JaketheSnake3636

We at GMNews certainly hope that episodes will only improve with time.
