DriveThru Gen Con 2013 ToDo List

Last year I created various "live" videos (uploaded same day) from Gen Con. There were basically two types of videos. Interview videos, where a publisher or rep explained a game and I could get images while they spoke. And, In-Play (or Post-Play) videos, which were a quick 3-5 minute video about mine and my fellow gamer's first impressions after playing a game.

Given the crop of releases at Gen Con, I am almost thinking of forgetting the "at-the-booth-interview" videos all together, and go straight for, the In-Play/Post-Play videos.

There just seems to be not much that's really going to be interesting to highlight for a booth interview... EXCEPT for possibly stuff that's not going to be released. Stuff like Rampage, Relic Runners, the M&M expansion, and Hegemonic are not being sold at Gen Con, but will be there in demo form. I still plan to get video interviews for those games that won't be for sale.

However, I think my first two insta-grabs are Spyrium and Trains... Euros.... Honestly... "Yawn" at someone explaining to me how those games works. Maybe Bioshock would probably do well from a publisher interview. But, there will be at least three review videos (guessing) by the time Gen Con hits. I think all of these games would be better served by a quick In-Play/Post-Play video, which would still give a brief high level summary of game play and also provide some various opinions.

Last year, my biggest view-getters were the FFG stuff (X-Wing and Star Wars CG), and the two super hero Deckbuilders (DC and Marvel). Mage Wars was also a frequently viewed video. All of those games that did well are seeing expansions and extra ships released. But, it seems completely unnecessary to stand there and have someone give me a sales pitch. In all honesty, an unboxing video would be more informative in those cases. Even Star Trek Attack Wing seems like a better candidate for an actual quick review than a booth interview.

Please post comments at the bottom of this Geeklist or in the general comments on what you would prefer to see in regards to Gen Con coverage. I'll put a poll here as well.

Poll
What type of Gen Con coverage would you prefer?
I prefer mostly In-Play reviews, but please do booth demos of not-yet-released games.
I prefer ONLY booth interviews with the publisher.
I prefer ONLY In-Play (Post-Play) reviews from a table of gamers.
I prefer a mix of both. It just depends on the game. (Please explain in comments)
