Hmm will have a watch, although years ago he said he'd left the games industry and was happy not being in that world.

 

He mention it in the show. Has the itch to make a return and do something of his own, only 6 minutes long so get it watched!

Good lord, that was grotty. Sunday nights are excruciating enough without the second-hand embarrassment from the bikini babes segment.

I haven't watched it but saw the absolutely cringe advertising for it.

I'm endlessly tickled by the fact that someone named Martin Harder replied.

Martin II: Martin Harder

:lol:

That's pretty amusing. I'm pretty sure I've seen his name before!

Was expecting to see some games footage, not just some old gamesmaster footage. Yeah the end bikini babes section wasn't needed it is just out of place with the rest of the show.

 

I actually worked with the legend that is Kirk Ewing and he has some great anecdote about his time on Gamesmaster. I had heard Dominik and Dave had patched up their rift over the N64 event. Bit of a clash of ego at the time, over who the main star was, after all that show pulled in a lot of views, more than any other gaming show to date I believe.

 

Nice to see Dave doing something gaming related, but I'll like to see more games in action.

Hmm. If he made a new thing and kind of had a self-deprecating attitude about the Mario moment (or about shoving a load of tits in a video) then it might work, but I'm worried that the tone of it all will be stuck in the 90s, and/or without a hint of irony.

Yeah the Bikini babes was completely misjudged. I get he's the Games Animal but 1994 was over 20 years ago, things have moved on from lads mag tits and games. It could be quite interesting though, if he follows the Game Hut style of videos, looking back at his past, things he did in the games industry (as he did a lot from TV, to magazines etc) it could be quite interesting. But the booth babes bit just really doesn't fit, his audience are one click away from any porn tube site you can name, they don't need this kind of thing and certainly the people watching it wouldn't be wanting it.

 

I actually quite like Dave, I did an interview with him years ago and brought him over to this forum (before some idiot banned him thinking he was a made up account) and he's open and friendly and happy to talk about what he does. So I hope he takes onboard these sort of comments and can have a nice little youtube channel although i fear he's going to be an invitation for trolls.

This would have gone down a storm on Granda Men & Motors back in the late 90s.

 

I don't think this'll get as far as a Christmas special.

Good grief. :facepalm: The bikini babes stuff is straight out embarrassing. Moronic. 

 

Having said that, he's still reasonably engaging on camera and it was just an introductory video. If he just keeps it to the games themselves and nostalgia then it 'might' be interesting to see how it unfolds. Tbh, at least it seems a more faithful take on that type of retro content. The recent Digitiser stuff looked woeful in comparison, imo.

I'm still unsure if this is meant to be tongue in cheek bad or if he actually believes it's it's okay.

The monotone voice of the singing, the deliberate lingering shots of the babes all suggest parody to me, but at the same time I look at him and think...Maybe.

 

I do believe his version of events from GM all those years ago. I believe he was stitched up to fail.

 What did I just watch....? :facepalm:

 

Gamesmaster was great, it ended when I was 16, both I, and the world has changed significantly since then.

Bikini babes, picking sides, Mario 64 being crap, the bandanna....  

 

Is the Games Animal a spoof character, or is he really like that?  IDGI.

 

That said, I remember meeting Dominic Diamond in 2004.  We ended up in a joke conversation about whether one of my mates sisters was hot or something.  Surreal.

 

I guess, who needs a time machine when time never moves on...

He's always struck me like that. Surely there's no way he could possibly mean this with no self awareness or sense of his own ridiculousness. And then…
