Good Game
In a sudden move that has upset fans and the TV industry, ABC Australia’s “Good Game” video game review series has been cancelled after ten years on the air.

The official reason is that the cancellation was brought on by the decision of two presenters, Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell and Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixsen, to pursue other opportunities.

For now, the show’s extensive Youtube channels with complete reviews and episodes remains online. [Source: ABC]
