In January 2004, the show began using some Disembodied Voice intros, submitted by fans via email and the TechTV message boards.
The "Drunk Girl" character who appears in various skits is played by Blair Butler, the head writer for the show.
During the time after ZDTV was sold and became TechTV, there was a time when Adam Sessler was the lone host of the show and it was known then as Extended Play. When Morgan Webb joined Adam, the show's name was changed to X-Play. This show remains the only surviving show from TechTV/G4 merger.
When Sega stopped making game consoles and exclusively became a third party, the show aired a big Sega game montage medley. The medley featured some games never released in America, including the Genesis Sailor Moon side-scrolling beat 'em up types, as well as the Dragon Ball Z fighting game for the Genesis, Buu-Yu Retsuden.
In its earlier incarnations, the show was known as Gamespot TV and Extended Play. It took the X-Play moniker in 2003 and has used it ever since.
