Dead Game News Launch, First Episode
I mentioned in the last videochat an idea I’ve been having in my head a little while now of possibly covering the news on games that are dying or being brought back from the dead due to how prevalent the practice of killing games is. Well I’ve cobbled together and attempt at doing this and have created a new channel devoted to the topic. I plan to announce Dead Game News on the main channel probably some time next week after the Planetside session, but in the meantime you get to see it early by coming to the site here. In addition to creating an intro for the channel (before realizing Youtube disabled that feature), you can see the first episode, also above.
Just as a disclaimer, I intend for this to take up an absolute minimum of my time. As long as you don’t expect much more than random gameplay footage + me talking over it, you shouldn’t be disappointed. I’ve intentionally created a separate channel for this as the production quality will be lower than what you can expect on the regular channel. I don’t expect people to flock to this, my main focus is still going to be my regular videos like Game Dungeon and my ongoing movie project, but I hope this ends up serving as a sort of chronology of just how many games are being killed. Also, to avoid any confusion, this is NOT the “campaign” I was planning to try and get the practice of killing games to end (especially from EA), that’s something separate that is going to take more time to plan out. In the meantime, some of you may find this interesting. If you have news on a game being killed or brought back, go ahead and email me, alternately I may be interested in gameplay footage people may want to contribute if I like it visually. News will be updated approximately whenever I find out more of it and am not super busy with something else. On that note, more work resumes on the other videos!
