“X-Play” to Feature World Premieres of New “Zero Punctuation” Videos With Weekly Sneak Previews

Previews of The Escapist Magazine’s Popular Web Video Series Debut on “X-Play” Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 8 pm

LOS ANGELES. – “Zero Punctuation” is coming to “X-Play,” giving viewers of the most-watched video game show on television an exclusive sneak peek at each new episode of the Web’s most popular video game review series. Beginning Tuesday, February 12, short previews of the wildly popular videos from creator Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw and The Escapist magazine will become an ongoing “X-Play” feature. Previews of “Zero Punctuation” videos will premiere exclusively on “X-Play” every Tuesday evening, before the Wednesday premiere of the full, uncut reviews at, which will remain the series’ online home. “Zero Punctuation” makes its world broadcast premiere on “X-Play,” February 12, 2008 at 8 pm ET/PT, only on G4.

“Zero Punctuation” has become one of the video game world’s most popular and infamous sources of criticism, unleashing reviews that combine humor and scathing insight with uproarious results. Each review combines deceptively simple animation with breathlessly blunt language, mercilessly mocking the weakest points in even the most critically acclaimed games.

“Every game has its faults, even the truly great ones,” said Morgan Webb, host of “X-Play.” “Nothing is funnier than seeing the mighty mocked.”

“I was already really excited about the new ‘X-Play’ format,” said Adam Sessler, host of “X-Play.” “Now I can barely contain myself. We’re dedicated to giving gaming fans what they want and we know they want ‘Zero Punctuation.’”

“’Zero Punctuation’ is game reviewing like it’s never been done before,” said Russ Pitts, Acquisitions and Production Manager at The Escapist. “We’re pleased to share the schizophrenia with ’X-Play’s’ audience.”

The “Zero Punctuation” previews are the newest addition to the updated “X-Play” format, which features a daily comprehensive overview of video game news and culture, in addition to the brutally honest reviews for which the show is known. Every weeknight at 8 pm, new, half-hour episodes of “X-Play” will give viewers a comprehensive update on each day’s videogame-related developments, along with a wide range of new features, including behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at games in development; interviews with industry luminaries; live, hands-on demonstrations of games before they hit store shelves; and in-depth analysis of the latest videogame trends.
