lol the black team happens to have the only black guy. Who set that up? But this is alright. Gamespot should really post this on their site to 1) get more traffic and 2) let international GSpotters view it as well. oh well they'll probably ignore my and everyone elses plees
Welcome to episode one of The Controller; meet the contestants, learn the rules, and watch one pair get shut down in the first elimination challenge.
Friday is here at last, and that means it's time for the premiere episode of The Controller. Friendships will be made, dreams will be shattered, and at least one person will get shot. It's madness right out of the gate. First up, we put our professional gamers through a grueling (and messy) obstacle course. Immediately after that, our noobs are ushered into their first hands-on session with Battlefield 3. Once the pros have had a chance to size up the noobs, teams will be formed. And then it's off to our first elimination challenge. That's right, we don't mess around on The Controller. They may have just arrived, but one team will be turning around and walking right back out again. See it all for yourself in the video below.
So what did you think? How about that surprise robot-dinosaur attack at the end? Pretty sweet, right? Whether you loved it or hated it, leave a comment below, hit up our YouTube channel for all sorts of video game content, and join the conversation by using #TheController on Twitter. Thanks for watching, and we'll see you next week!
After watching it, looks weird. Kinda reminds me that show on MTV: "The Gaunlet" i thought it would be original, but as always, reality tv always brings drama
Calling out to all Asians who are playing BF3 multiplayer already!!! Please use Asia region server filter in the Browse Servers please!!! I'm living in the Philippines and there are currently no people playing in the Asia region servers (which is where I get the best signal). :| SO IF YOU'RE AN ASIAN...PLAY IN THE ASIA REGION SERVERS!!! :) #BF3rules#DICEisawesome#Frostbite2istwiceascool#goAsianconnection
This is one of the most appalling things I have ever seen. All these overacting self important people in this show make me want to vomit. This is typical American dumbed down TV. I really think this show will actually make you retarded if you manage to watch all of it. What a bloody tragedy. Or is it all just one big pisstake and I am missing the joke? Please for the sake of humanity I hope it is.
they kinda fail in my opinion, if you want to talk about people who are new to a game it should be spelt newb, but i guess it's for recognition
Please let us know if the video is available in your non-US region. From our end there should be no region restrictions, and we're trying to pinpoint what the problem is.
Umm, GameSpot, instead of uploading this to YouTube where it's not available to Europeans, why not, you know, upload it to the site you already own where everyone can see it? It's this little website called GameSpot.com.
Hmmm, from Belgium here too, can't watch it :-( I know I can fix it but seriously, this should work by itself...
G4 could use shows like these, even though almost everyone on this show are douches. Especially the host.
Haters gonna hate. Just because MLG revolves around consoles, mainly because everyone and their brother has one - you PC elitists don't need to cry... it's okay. I still think YOU are good.
i love people who think just cause they play pc pc is better.. sorry but they just like playing on that system, plus dont want viruses and such not. go on a console and see how a pc gamer fairs.. its just their console so i do think they are pros :P.. get off their case and go play on a pc.. as for the video itself i cannot wait til 12 tonight w00t.. we gunna be killing um
"I'd love to see these "Pros" take on PC Gamers." "They are "pros" using controllers? Don't think so..." Have to agree with both, if you're looking for who can push a button the best, you're looking at the wrong system, not to mention the sheer number who were rejected because their appearance wasn't as 'TV friendly' - Meaning they were fat and even uglier than these guys. Though I do find even the idea of a 'Professional' gamer absolutely ridiculous...Enjoy amounting to nothing in life.
I thought it was really bad, but once i watched it it was kind of interesting. Anyway i don't think ill watch the other episodes as i hate reality shows :)
cool watching a show loosley based on gaming where rookies play games terrible and they have physical challenges yay
Reality TV? Not even gunna bother watching. I hate reality TV and wish it would disappear forever. "We ran out of ideas to make good, quality television so let's just record and air a bunch of stupid crap that wouldn't normally have been aired." Hmp...
