Yet another youtube gaming channel.
« on: September 17, 2015, 04:50:16 pm »
So as some of you may have seen on IRC I have started making some youtube gaming videos.

To me it makes sense. Nearing 700 games, spend a lot of time playing them so why not record that and try and do something with it.

Problem is I don't really know what would be best for me to do. Everything will improve with practice but for now I have made 3 test videos to test out what I should do.

So I am looking for feed back,

Is it intresting?
Is it something you would watch? (or I guess use for Test 2)
What did you like about it?
What did you not like about?
What needs to be improved? (well everything but key parts)
What would you like to see?
Issues?
Problems?

Should I focus one making one? make them all? suggestion for a 4th or a 5th type?

so anyway onto the test videos!

Concept Test 1 - Thursday Night Combat (temp name) - Announcer show. (Thanks to Butjam for being announcer 2 for the test ep)



Two Announcers/Commentators talk over various game play. Fighting games, Co-op games, Competitive team based games and maybe some others. Commenting on the game, the players skill or just observations in general.

I think the show is potentially interesting and a bit of a variation to normal letsplays. The catch on this one is I would need to find someone with free time to announce with (as I can barely speak myself never mind do voices) what isn't the easiest to do. Even then my quality as announcer as very low too so having two announcers would probly be even better...but that's plans for the future.


Concept Test 2 - The Silent Protagonist - Video Walkthroughts



Silent video walkthroughs. Cause you don't go to a walkthrough to listen anecdotes. You go to find out how to do something or where something is.

The idea is in the videos description will be a link to a forum post(should be 2nd post of this topic) and that forum post will have time stamped links to anything they might be looking for in the game. Boss fights, item locations, Trophys/achievments, just how to do something or what ever.

This one would be more of a resourse than entertaining so not really something people would sit down to watch I don't think. (I dunno maybe some games people would just sit down and watch the story)

So Plus: Could be usefull, don't need to talk, easy to do, Little to no editing/effort needed
Con: Not entertaining, the opposite of what is needed if I want youtube to give me money, Time stamping everything in a big game will be a pain.



Concept Test 3 - ...generic lets play...



Basic Lets Play. Play the game, talk constantly, hopefully be entertaining,

Fail at all 3...

I assume I would get more comfortable speaking as time goes on. Most comments about this one so far has been play better/more mainstream games.

What I would. Would play a lot of games ove time. Of course more popular games means more competition.

Not much to say about this one. It's a lets play. It's the same as the streaming I have been doing with even less interaction with others.

it's also been suggested I try a review type show so might put up a test show 4 soon.

Anyway already went over this but what do you think? Harsh critics welcomes.

Should I try doing all 3? focus one one or two?

None at all and back to the drawing board?

Keep thinking I am forgetting something and i'm rambline and repeating myself so

Thoughts?

Well I do also do some streaming

http://www.twitch.tv/kdogground2
https://gaming.you tube.com/user/kdogground2/live

But not on any real scedual. Just normally when I feel like it or I get a game I want people to see (Or on rare ocasion people actually ask)

But I would like to do some non live stuff.

Although I am as far from being an expert as it is possible to be, I don't think going down the generic Let's Play road would be a wise one. There are already so many people trying to make it big as a youtuber, and unless you're incredibly lucky It's going to be very hard to stand out. The youtube market is already incredibly bloated by 12 year old twats from Surrey telling you how to build a cobblestone generator and shitting their pants at youtube-bait shitty horrors.

You clearly have a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm for Japanese games so I suggest doing videos on them. Reviews/Tutorials/walthroughs whatever. There is no point doing mainstream titles to please your audience, as at the moment you don't have one. Do what you enjoy doing and it will reflect in the quality of the output. Make sure that technically the video is of a good quality as well. If I didn't already know who you were, I would have probably turned off after hearing butjam's toaster mic.

tl;dr: I have no idea what im talking about

Well I tried to address some things brought up in the topic here.



I had planned on uploading a few videos but something went wrong with the capture and I need to re-do them. Even in this one where I focus on a game I know about (Mario game where I created the levels myself) I had some audio issues not to mention my constant pausing.

So more thoughts?

Edit:

Still having issues with capture. Tried Plague of Shadows 4 times so far and had capture or sound issues on all of them so...

That could be an intresting one for the commentary show, could even do a big online game but for best results would need everyone to record thier own footage.

Simplest idea would be just a single player game at a higher difficulty than I am used to and just fast forward between comment sections.

Issue is I need someone to act as announcer 2. Butjam helped me with first ep but he has a busy scedual of Drinking Work so doesn't have the time.

If anyone is up for trying it for an ep let me know.

Anyway Another LP test ep.

Someone said I played too many japanese games so...



Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

Tried to keep it to 10 mins, ended up basicly 30

Took me like 7 attempts to record so hopefully it will be a bit better.

Should I do a series of this?

Edit:

Speaking of series.



Another ep of Super Mario Maker. Diffrent levels. Did a bit better this time.

So yeah thoughs? really need feedback.

Edit:

Wish people would post feedback so I could do new posts instead of edit.

Anyway

https://www.you tube.com/playlist?list=PLYI_YdulyYvX-7pDpNS3My2rbVYx5hePv

Did some more Plague of Shadows eps, managed to keep them around 10 mins but I don't think it was very entertaining so I stopped.

Been a while since last update and no one is posting so here is something new.



As suggested tried a review time show and I put in the description some comments about the quality.

So thoughts?
