Title: Revision3
Post by: Chiprocks1 on March 18, 2012, 12:13:22 pm
I'm constantly in and out of different media, be it music, DVD's, Cable TV, etc....that I always don't have enough time to spare when factoring in work. Sometimes I have just a little time to kill that can't be filled with a movie or whatever. Enter Internet TV. Ever since hooking up my Roku and doing plenty of searches for Channels to add, I've come to the realization that Revision3 so far is the best of the bunch. They have a ton of variety for shows that I get to watch and most of the episodes run anywhere from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. Certain shows do have the occasional 'Specials' and those can average around 20 minutes and longer.

So, that brings me to this new Sub-Board for any show you are watching online or on Roku or similar devices.. I will be adding the shows I'm currently checking out on a regular basis to the board. See ya there..........

My day hasn't officially started until I watch my Totally Rad Show (and Film State on Tuesdays and Fridays).  I do miss me some Diggnation though, but I can understand why that finally ended.  It was interesting to see that evolve from a videotaped low-res show to the point where we got an HD show in front of a cheering crowd direct to our TVs.

Totally Rad Show is the first thing I check out everyday on Revision. But lately Alex and Dan are getting on my nerves. You have Dan who has a lot of trouble trying to conceptualize what he is thinking into words and it gets frustrating watching him talk. Alex on the other hand interrupts everyone lately and that irks me even more. Also, his reviews lately have sucked. Go back and watch his review of Game Of Thrones Season 1 recap. He made himself look pretty foolish on that. Watching the other two guys react to his review was....PRICELESS.

I've checked out Variant, the new Comic book show. If you want to call it a show. Anyway, I really don't like the host. I love the concept of the show, I just wish it was anyone other than Arris Quinones hosting it. The way he talks irritates me. It's not so much how he talks but the way he jerks his head and body around when enunciating words that makes me feel like I have had 20 cups of coffee to start my day. Ugh.

I'm liking TRS more when they play games and so on but I also miss when they would go out and do crazy stuff like geocaching or running a marathon or Raised On Rad.

The problem with the reviews... especially the movie reviews... is now Danny is an actual movie director and he doesn't want to comment.  Which I understand but he usually had good insights and the show is robbed of that now.

Their comic book reviews I've never been that fond of.  I like that there's a comic-centric show (though I read very few comics now) but Itried the show and didn't care for the host either.  I guess I want more in-depth content.

I get why Dan doesn't do reviews anymore, as he doesn't want to burn any bridges with potential actors and writers for future gigs. But I think he is worrying too much about offending people at the expense of his own show.
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Neumatic on September 13, 2012, 10:15:04 pm
Which I totally understand, but I agree.  Maybe they could bring in some other people (like they have Peter from /Filmcast on every now and then) to give the show a little more content when they do film reviews).

Adam Sessler Joins Rev3Games!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzKNdPMI9-s


With G4 deciding to basically bite the hands that feed them with it's gaming programs and move onto a different format, many of it's top talent, the biggest being Adam Sessler have refused to resign with the network and have made their exodus to find greener pastures. Not much was known about where Adam would end up at. Well, he has officially joined Rev3Games. Up till now, I really haven't been a fan or even a follower of the Channel because I just don't like one of the host. I don't know his name, because I don't care too. It's the dude with the pompadour. Anyway, with Adam on board, I'm definitely going to be checking in from time to time to see what he has up his sleeve.

Totally Rad Show: A Look Back - Episode 1 (Part 1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQiW3yVUVZU

Wow. I was not expecting to hear the news that the gang has decided to end TRS. I was pretty confident that the show would be around for another 2-3 years. Bummer. I may not have always agreed with their reviews, but the show for the most part was very entertaining and it was the first show that I would check out daily on Revision. I can't see any other show coming along and replacing this one any time soon. So, the final 2 weeks of TRS will be a retrospective selected episodes as they give a running commentary as they watch their favorite episodes from the past.
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Neumatic on November 19, 2012, 08:51:15 pm
i KNOOOOOWWW... TRS is always the first thing I watch when I get up, gets my motor going.  And the fact I'll never be reviewed on the show is a real bummer.  But as we were saying, the show would have to change it up in a big way to stick around.

Adam Sessler joining Rev3 is a long-time coming, I'm glad to see it.  Honestly, with "We Come From The Future" ending and now TRS, I was thinking they might be boxing up at Rev3 or doing a big reassemble after being bought.  Is Filmstate really going to be the only thing on there that I watch?
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Chiprocks1 on November 19, 2012, 09:24:11 pm
I honestly don't know if Revision3 is going to be something I stick with in the long run now that TRS has made it official they are ending. Sessler does offer a lifeline, but it remains to be seen where he takes it content wise. I have dropped quite a few shows from my watch list on Rev3 because they just don't have much to offer in the way of entertainment, certainly not on par with TRS.

Post by: Neumatic on November 19, 2012, 09:42:15 pm
I'm feeling the exact same way, I'm sorry to say.  I used to watch TWiT all the time but haven't in years, I don't like the idea of losing all this good quality independent entertainment (I do listen to some shows, but it's not the same as having content right on the TV).

Sessler's Something (Episode 5: Newtown, Videogames, and the Issues of Violence)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51n2CAm4_8Q&list=UUQXR8pItAoKDAJSbphFxbrg&index=10

I noticed this last week, but I'm just now posting about today. Sessler's Something has gotten it's own sub-channel within the larger Revision3 Channel Menu. So, you can get your fix at the new channel, but he will still be contributing other stories and information news with his other sub-channel on Rev3Games. Either way, pretty good so far.

Why did they remove The Totally Rad Show from the Revision Channel on Roku? There are a few shows that have been cancelled for quite some time that are still on the Channel. Diggnation is STILL on. So, what gives?
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Neumatic on March 04, 2013, 09:12:51 pm
No idea.  Though I suppose it's far more "current' than Diggnation's "hey, this is funny when we're drunk" focus.

I actually haven't caught up with anything the crew is doing since the show went off, which I feel kinda bad about.  It's like the friend you tell you'll write to when you move away.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on March 04, 2013, 09:16:44 pm
Well for me, I was still hitting some of the older episodes since I came to the show late. So imagine my surprise that the entire list of available episodes were pulled. Yeah, this happened pretty much after the final episode aired. I just haven't vented till now because I was hopeful that it was a glitch or something and that it would be fixed. That hasn't happened. This is me p*ssed. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/soapbox.gif)

They might still all be on Youtube...

I've been watching since the beginning.  They said I was actually the first fan they met.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on March 05, 2013, 12:17:32 pm
YouTube is my only option at the moment. I'd prefer that Revision3 host the episodes because the Video Quality is so much better. But beggars can't be choosers. Will just port them over to Roku and watch 'em that way. Where did you run into them at? Comic Con?

There's a segment that I like to watch called 'Casual Friday'. Up till now, it has been featured in the Rev3Games Review Channel. But for whatever reason and I'm guessing because it's very popular with the viewing audience, it has gotten its own Channel appropriately called....'Casual Friday'. So, look for the new channel.

This goes out to all you Revision3 disciples! That means you Neumatic!!! The Rev3 Channel has added a bunch of new shows to their list. Some of them actually look interesting. More so than the last update. Will check out what I can and post my thoughts later.

Just found out that Adam Sessler left Revision 3. Now I haven't been following any of his reviews and segments for awhile, including a few other non-Sessler Rev3 shows. But I was still subscribed to them on YouTube and would get my daily and weekly feeds. But one thing I found noticeably absent was Sessler's Something from the Rev3 Menu. I thought maybe he was on an extended break. Turns out the break is permanent. His tenure sure didn't last long. Even though I haven't watched many of Rev3's shows and can't comment on where they are as a Company, with the amount of on-air turnover lately, I think Rev3 is definitely on the downside. It use to be THE place to go to get my geek information. Not so much these days.
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Neumatic on May 16, 2014, 04:02:45 pm
Aw, that f*ckin' sucks!  I wonder why he left!  More importantly, I wonder where he went.  I had this impression that it was a perfect fit for him, I mean, where else could he go to be him and get paid for it (well, Nerdist, I suppose).

Yeah, Rev3 has just... ever since Totally Rad Show went offline, there's been less and less drawing me there.

This definitely started the downward spiral for the "Network". As for Sessler, he's actually looking to get into something other than video games. In a word, he wants to change his career path.
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Neumatic on May 16, 2014, 04:10:17 pm
I'm definitely interested to see what he does, he's extremely literate in books and movies as well, his is one of those brains I'd love to pick.  I can picture him doing a Charlie Rose type series where he interviews creative people from all over the entertainment field, sort of like Conan's Serious Jibber-Jabber.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on May 16, 2014, 04:20:51 pm
I just think there is something deeper going on a Rev3 given the employee turnover. It's not even the same people as it was 6 months ago, let alone 1 year ago. I wouldn't be shocked to learn that most are defecting elsewhere on purpose, much in the same way that G4 went belly up. I was hopeful that there would one day be a reunion between Sessler and Morgan Webb. Well, that's not gonna happen now.

I wonder if it's due to them being bought up by Discovery.  That never made sense to me.

As long as we miss (mess?) the Sess, here's a little 'life in review" thing he posted on Kotaku (http://kotaku.com/memories-of-my-16-year-career-in-video-games-1580581507).
Title: Re: Revision3
Post by: Chiprocks1 on May 23, 2014, 10:01:41 am
Thanks for the post. Had a chance to skin a little bit of the article. Will set aside a time to read it all. But I had to comment on the image of Ghost N' Goblins. I know it's his all time favorite game ever. With that said, there isn't anyone else in the world, including him that is better than me at that game. It's a bold statement. But I absolutely believe it to be 100% true. There really isn't anyone that can touch me and my mastery of the original cabinet arcade game. Back when the game first came out, it was hugely popular. Not trying to toot my own horn here, but I want to paint a picture of what it was like being THE KID that everyone would watch play the game. I was in High School and with the amount of other kids watching me play (I'm talking about 1 cabinet and throngs of kids trying to squeeze in around to watch what I did and how easy I made the game look).

I truly did feel like a rock star with other kids always asking me if I would play the game and trying to get me to spill the beans on all the tips and tricks that I discovered on my own and created others as well. Man, I wish I had those Saturday afternoons on video tape so that I could post them for you guys here to check out. Each Saturday, one quarter and I could play for 6 hours non stop, flip the game infinite amounts of time and max out 22 extra lives. The only reason I would stop playing is I couldn't physically stand that long. I did teach one of my best friends at the time how to play and I would just turn the game over to him and let him play. He was good, but not even in the same ballpark as me. Just thought I'd share. If I ever run into Sessler in person, I will challenge him to a one on one, winner take all game of G N' G.

Tara Says Goodbye to Rev3Games

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pP9gUA-W0SA&list=UUQXR8pItAoKDAJSbphFxbrgToday


And THAT is the fat lady signing. Tara was the only, ONLY one left that I still had interest in on Rev3. But she knew, maybe not right away, but eventually, that Rev3 is a sinking ship. They've gotten rid of a lot of talent that made watching Rev3 something to check out every day. With Tara officially gone, it's safe for me to finally say that I'm deleting my Rev3 Channel. There is nothing left there at all.

Tara Long and Anthony Carboni are heading to.......The Weather Channel. No lie. Doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. I was actually expecting them to land at IGN. I guess they are sick of having to do Game Reviews all the time and maybe this is the change they are looking for. I think they got more enjoyment out of their science show than anything else they did at RevGames in the last year or so.

Yeah, I miss those guys.  I'm sure I told you, but the last Comic-Con I went to, Jeff Cannata told me "you know, when we started we weren't sure if anyone was watching, and you were literally the FIRST fan we met, and it just meant so much to us man, I just wanna say thank you."
