Question to the Community?

Hello PixlBit Nation,

So I have a question; how do you feel about video content?

Awhile back, before I was even writing over here at PixlBit, I dabbled on YouTube producing web shows, video reviews, and basic gameplay commentaries.

By far my favorite videos to produce in the past have been small asides and op-eds. Sometimes these videos can be the perfect addition to a feature or news article. Basically I look at it as a way to speak on an informal and personal level with you the community.

Additionally, with our community growing rapidly over the last few weeks there have been several discussions about hosting game nights. Both JD and I thought it might be a nice to live-stream those events allowing everyone to participate (even those who do not have the game or system being played).  

However, that’s my viewpoint on video content, what I’m really interested in; is how do you feel about this?

Is this type of content something you’d watch? Or do you really have no interest in it at all. Please feel free to let me know either way. Honestly there is nothing wrong with not being interested in video content, and while it can be fun to produce, it serves no purpose if it’s not entertaining you the community.

So please let me know what you think and I’m open to any suggestions/ideas with producing this kind of content going forward.

Do you mean like joining in on PSN or XBL on a multiplayer game or something? I don't mind videos. I have to warn you that anything over 5 minutes pushes my attention span past its limit. Haha

just put it out there and see what happens. Cool

Videos are okay for me as long as they aren't too long.  Like Coolsetzer, once it starts pushing 5 min I get bored.

I'm a big YouTube fan, so I like video content.

If I don't play on a community night, I would like to watch if you stream it.

Video content is always good; the problem is, I like it too much, and already have a bajillion subscriptions on Youtube and (mostly the TGWTG reviewer variety) that I can never keep up with.

However, a five minute video review of a game or a stream of a game night would be most welcome. Like others have said, if it's short, and something I'm interested in, I'll watch, just try not to make it the length of the Conan episode I'm probably watching as I'm on Pixlbit, and we're golden.

I think it would be a nice addition. I watch all sorts of video on my iPad each day. Everything from news to game trailers. Video podcasts are a fave of mine,too. I feel video content would enhance an already great site.
