I made a video talking about some positive/negative thoughts on Knack. Check it out if you want.

I know there are lighting issues. They get worse throughout the video, too. I didn't notice it was happening until I was editing. If the footage seems jumpy at times, it's because I originally had 34 minutes of video that I had to cut down. Any other criticism would be appreciated.

I also have no way of recording the PS4 right now, as you need a device that can record via HDMI.

Nice video, but I have two suggestions. Use as much in-game footage as possible. Unless you have quality lighting and a good HD camera I wouldn't use that. Also, write a script. It's pretty boring to watch people sit and talk about a game when they make it up as they go. Showing gameplay is also a great way to make a lot of cuts since all that is being cut out is empty audio.

/my two cents as someone with no idea what he's talking about

I do have a good HD camera, I just have never really messed with the lighting, that was the problem. As far as a script goes I'm horribly at reading things off like that. I can try, and I kind of did this time, but it might fail horribly. I had everything I said in this video written down in some way. I just wanted to glance over, notice the idea and then elaborate in my own words.  Undecided

Ah, gotcha. I'd still include a lot of gameplay but that's IMO.

Yeah I'm not trying to push it on you or anything but I think it could improve your vids a little. Maybe you could use the process you used in this video with notes and talking, then make a (loose) actual script from that and read off of it? 

I've noticed if a person isn't talking fast enough or jumping through topics without being redundant, I usually stop the video and look for someone more professional-seeming. Reviewers usually keep it pretty concise and have very little dead air. If they aren't talking, they're letting you focus on gameplay or pausing after some stupid pun.

The only reviewer I can think of who doesn't use frequent cuts is TotalBiscuit, but he's really good at speaking. Adam Sessler uses them more frequently, but his videos are just as entertaining because he's cutting out the boring bits and thinking out what he's going to say.

Well that rambled and I now have no idea where I was going so there ya go.   Smiley

I agree. Sessler's reviews are entertaining.  Afro

If I keep making these I will be trying out different things every time.

As far as gameplay goes... I can't get gameplay though. Unless I just steal other peoples' footage but that's bad.

Ah, I thought you were the only one around here with a PVR.

Dood

The HD PVR uses component cables and only records 720p. The only thing PS4 outputs is through HDMI cables. I need a new device in order to do that.  Undecided
