Dara O Briain returns to Dave and this time he wants to play some games with the likes of Russell Howard, Bob Mortimer, Rachel Riley, David James and Jason Manford. Based on the smash hit live Edinburgh show, Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit sees celebrities battle each other at a host of classic and contemporary games - everything from Star Wars Battlefront and Temple Run to Pong and Tetris. Well, we're game. Are you? (The answer is Yes. Yes you are.)

Yes I have it locked into the top box at home , I'm not expecting much to be honest, celebs playing game of no real connection could portray it a bit of a turkey, without Domic Diamond taking the piss, I don't see Dara O brien hitting back hard, I could be wrong though, hey at least it's a new video games related show yeah?

Its amazing that such a huge industry has little on no exposure on TV. Its probably why non gamers say "its just for kids".

Maybe its also difficult to place a program to an age group, as for every kid that plays there's an adult playing. The age range for gamers increases year on year, as the first gamers get older.

I like Dara, like Charlie Brooker hes a proper gamer who's also a comedian.
