Popular online gaming channel G4 is to be rebranded as the Esquire Network from April 22, and will cease all game programming.

G4 will be turned into the Esquire Channel during the first half of 2013, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Owners NBCUniversal and Hearst will use the channel to court the untapped “metrosexual” demographic with shows devoted to “cooking, travel and fashion,” and some gaming-centric offerings as well. G4 staples Attack of the Show and X-Play have been cancelled, and will no longer air past the end of 2012.

Amazing. G4′s posted some set-up shots of E3 in the making, and very buildy they are too.
Calm before the storm. Monday will be super-awesome.

Don’t worry, everyone; the Internet is safe. This unrealistically tantalizing piece of hearsay is totally bunk, according to G4.
“We currently do not have anything planned in conjunction with Microsoft for September 25,” a G4 rep told Kotaku. “I can’t speak for Microsoft but can say we do not have anything planned.”
We’re as shocked as you are.

Wow. G4′s posted up almost five minutes of inFAMOUS gameplay, and it still looks brilliant. Whoever’s playing it might want to get some skillz, like, but there’s no denying there’s major promise here. Massive city, transport systems, lovely gritty feel, super-powers and lots of climbing add up to “game we want to play”. So watch this, definitely.
PS3-only, beginning of next year.

This can’t happen soon enough. Capcom’s put out new video of the sensational-looking Resident Evil 5, and we reckon you’d have to be dead inside (geddit?) to be stoical. Movie’s after the break, courtesy of G4. Game’s out in February.

US TV channel G4′s announced its schedule for E3 coverage this year, and it looks extensive. All of the conferences are being broadcast without commercials, a good thing. Hit the link for all the details.
Better, though, is a promise that all press conferences will be streamed live on the firm’s site, and not just the platform holder affairs. Amazing news, and a first. Go through and look for yourself. Looks like E3′s coming to you this time.
