* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' has Inkopolis News, a news show hosted by the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie. Its primary purpose is to report which battle stages are currently available on the online modes, as well as information on the Splatfest events. When you start the game for the first time, the duo will also report on the disappearance of the Great Zapfish, a crucial plot point in the game's story mode. Upon clearing the game for the first time, a news segment plays reporting the return of the Great Zapfish.

* ''Night Springs'' in ''AlanWake'', an obvious parody of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', which Alan wrote a few episodes of before writing novels, as his manager [[PluckyComicRelief Barry]] later mentions. It fits type two as well, as Alan gets to watch the show on certain TV sets during the course of the game.

to:

* The ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' games are loaded with these, because of the entire cast's cover identities as part of a theater troupe. In addition to the many, many stage productions they put on, there are also the movies made by the studios owned by Sumire's family (including the infamous ''Crimson Lizard''), and the radio serial ''Red Lad''.
