G4 has cancelled both X-Play and Attack of the Show; two main staples in the G4 lineup. It was reported earlier in the year that G4 would be rebranding itself, moving away from geek culture. While Attack of the Show reported on all things geek culture, ranging from internet videos and new technology from around the world, X-Play's focus was on all things video games.
"Both long-running shows helped define, as well as expand, the pop culture and gaming TV experience for a generation." said G4 on their Facebook page. "We hope you've had as much fun watching them as we have had making them, and sincerely hope you join us in bidding a fond farewell to Attack of the Show and X-Play's as we look back over the next two months and head towards each series' finale"
Both shows will have new episodes air until the end of 2012 with a slew of guest host such as John Barrowman, Michael Ian Black, Josh Myers, Paul Scheer, Rob Hueb el and Horatio Sanz appearing on Attack of the Show, while they join current hosts wishing farewell to the two shows.
