Lindsey and I both love trivia shows; They’re an opportunity for us to show off just how much useless bullshit we store in our heads (a lot). When we saw that Xbox Live had an online interactive trivia show in the form of 1 vs. 100 (based on the TV trivia show of the same name), who were we to say no? We jumped in to the first season of 1 vs 100 a little late, due to when we got Xbox Live, but played quite a bit of the subsequent off-season and a great deal of season 2.
And now it’s cancelled.
Microsoft confirmed today that 1 vs. 100 will not be returning for a third season. This is unfortunate, because 1 vs 100 was a great game to jump in to with friends and just have a fun, relaxing evening. Via Kotaku:
“When we started on this journey, we knew we were creating an entirely new genre of entertainment that would be a continually evolving concept,” said Dave McCarthy, General Manager, Microsoft Game Studios. “We’re very proud of the ‘1 vs 100′ team and their accomplishments, and are excited to apply what we’ve learned to future programming.”
I’ll miss 1 vs. 100, but at least I managed to 100% the achievements before it was cancelled!
