Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit is the UK's next video game TV show

Starring Eurogamer favourite Ellie Gibson!

We had GamesMaster in the nineties. Thumb Bandits in the noughties. Now, in the twenty-tens, we've got Go 8 Bit.

Comedian, TV presenter and Metal Gear Solid lover Dara O Briain hosts Go 8 Bit, a new six-part series for Dave based on the live Edinburgh show of the same name.

Not heard of Go 8 Bit? Check out the video, below.

Each week the show stars two celebrity guests who compete to be crowned 8 Bit Champion. There are two team captains: video gaming comedians Steve McNeil and Sam Pamphilon, creators of the original Edinburgh show.

Oh, and former Eurogamer favourite Ellie Gibson is also involved!

Here's the official blurb:

And here's a quote from Dara O Briain:

Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit airs on Dave in autumn 2016. In case you haven't seen it, here's O Briain on the brilliance that is Metal Gear Solid, Live at the Apollo.
