Video Verdict: Striking a Balance

Striking a Balance
Balance is Always Best…

First off, I want to thank everyone who voted and everyone who gave me feedback on this, both in the poll as well as comments here and on other sites. :) I love how honest y’all are with me, and I really appreciate it. Over eighty votes are in as I write this, and the majority overwhelmingly wants a balanced approach, so here’s what I’m thinking.

I’ll decide whether each game gets text or video coverage via review or preview on a game-by-game basis, depending on what I think might be more entertaining. If I do go with video, I’ll include enough text in the post linking to the video to give y’all a good notion about what’s in the video without having to watch it. This is so folks who don’t want to watch videos or can’t watch them due to hearing or language restrictions will still know what the gist of the video is. Certain articles like news will always be text-based, and interviews will likely very as time goes on. Hopefully this will strike a balance that will keep things fun, zesty and interesting for both you folks and me. ;)

So thank you again to everyone who voted and commented, I REALLY super duper appreciate it, no lie. ;) Y’all are what help motivate me to put so much time in this site, so thank you for your continued patronage and awesomeness. :) If you have any further questions or comments on this, please don’t hesitate to throw them my way. :) Thanks again!

  1. Sounds good to me Brian. Videos are a neat & interesting divergence from the norm, but yeah text is quicker to digest.

    How do those spheres not roll off??

    Wonderful volume of updates recently by the way.

    1. Thanks man, and that’s one reason why I wanna keep doing videos, they take less time to do than text articles so I can post ’em more frequently, but I’ll totally do both. :)

  2. This sounds like excellent balance of text and video. I think you’ve nailed what is appropriate for video format (let’s play, some interviews, reviews and previews), and what works best with text (some interviews and definitely news, IMHO). It’s good to see you putting so much thought into the best way to deliver your content, which is always timely and informative. :) Keep it up!

  3. my only problem with video, verizon is being dicks and seem to be throttling our youtube bandwidth.. OR just has a broken router somewhere connected to youtube (But some how not any other site? >.> so suspicious)
    So we tend to lose around 80% of the packets between youtube.. and videos are so slow to download :< some times taking up to an hour minutes for a 10 minute video. some times downloading immediately.

    Otherwise, I love video, and love text. :3
