Glad to see you enjoyed Deadpool for what is was worth; a good time! I caught you're earlier review as well here on Pixl, both were great! I'll have to check the game out sometime.

Nice vid and nice channel. I subbed :D

I always wanted to make a channel like this with my friends, but they aren't intrested and don't take me seriously. Tongue Out

I'm curious, what model camera do you use?

Awesome thanks so much!! I have no idea! I'll ask the director of the show and get back to you on that :) 

Honestly, I was really nervous about the whole idea of it, and the hardest part is promoting it, so I'm happy for the few supporters I have on here :) but its a lot of fun to do, we always have a good time.

It looks like it is in the family of prosumer camcorders, because of how it seems to keep everything in focus, and everything seems pretty evenly lit. Obviously that could be due to the lighting set-up/camera-person as well, and I could just look like a complete dumbass when the director says it's something else, but I am thinking "prosumer (meaning cheap enough for consumer consumption, but good enough to be getting close to professional look) level camcorder."

I'm mainly commenting this to see if I end up being right or wrong, cause now I'm curious. lol

He uses a Canon Rebel T2i with an external Rhode Mic.

I am a suburban white kid who HATED when my next door neighbors watched DBZ; cause I really disliked the show. That complaint fans now have about filler? I had that when I was under ten. Then again, I was a huge fan of Power Rangers, which is a show with extremely little breathing room for story and a much dumber, more corny everything, so I'm definitely not saying I disliked it cause I enjoyed "intelligent" entertainment. lol

Anyway, dug the show, glad you liked Deadpool for what it is, loved the Replay segment (as a fan of Twin Snakes, I for one agree there is no bad version of MGS) and liked the bloopers; nice editing, and everyone seemed a bit more natural in this one compared to the one I watched before. Good job all around!

Now for extreme nitpicking!

My only suggestion would be for the title card sequence at the beginning, to not say "welcome back," but something like "our first segment is," since it's an internet video and no one has gone anywhere/no ads have played except before the video (unless you are making this with the intent of eventually having it on TV). OR, for instance, in this video, I think it might flow more naturally if you did the intro mostly as it is, say "that's all coming up on this fourth episode of Server Side," or something to that effect, cut to the Server Side title card, then to the Deadpool opening, and then back to you reviewing the game, as opposed to cutting to you before and after the Deadpool clip.

And this may seem counterintuitive to what I just said, but it might also flow better if you had everyone saying something like "next up, so and so gives his take on the best Metal Gear gaming moments" before cutting to the title card for that segment.

Again though, the editing is already awesome, I'm just being nitpicky so I can offer some form of suggestion. Keep up the great work!Smile

No, this is GOOD. I'm really happy you're offering feedback, and I'm glad someone else thought the welcome back thing was weird. Because it is just a YouTube show. I think saying "next up" would be fine because we're just intro-ing what we have next. So I will give all this to the director, because I personally think these are all great suggestions! So thank you!

I actually have not seen all of Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z, although I do like it. I could just only ever watch it as a friends house, who never let me catch up :(.

However, I do like Power Rangers a lot haha. Even though, yes its dumb but that is what makes it awesome :)

I, for one, am definitely getting slightly more comfortable...although I'm still really nervous most of the time. But I'm glad it seemed better haha.
