Running for three seasons in the early ‘80s, Starcade was a game show in which players with excellent hair competed on arcade machines while the host tried to keep up. Now the pop culture preservationists at Shout Factory have the rights to Starcade, and they plan to bring it back.
The company behind the original video game competition, 1982's Starcade, has launched a site that packages clips from the old game show into a format that lets you "play" Starcade online.
Video games and TV just do not mix. Aside from a few brave attempts coming out of the UK, I'm yet to see a show about games that doesn't come off as juvenile, stale and boring as hell.
