Maybe one of the two talented publishers could explain the game in the video whistle

Given this is a promotional video by the publisher it really makes no sense to have a person giving their own comments. Either they won't be genuine or nobody will believe they are.

You could film responses from various gamers playing the game in some promotional event, then again, we will know you would cut everything that wouldn't be 100% positive.

Be honest in that this is a promotional video and it should work fine. (by promotional I mean that it's obviously made by the publisher).

Alexandros

Thessaloniki (mostly), Trikala (sometimes), Meteora (at least once per Trikala trip), Athens (whenever possible), -how many more characters does it accept? Impressive! so I'm moving on with my list- Koromilia, Kavourotripes, Samothraki, Jogja, Bruxelles..

Αιτιολογία απαντήσεων:

1. Η φωνή δίνει θεματικότητα. Το θέμα είναι η ποιότητα της φωνής (και της ομιλίας) και όχι το φύλο. Είναι σημαντικό να μπορεί να βγάλει το θέμα του παιχνιδιού, χωρίς να υπερβάλει.

2. Νομίζω ότι και το 3-D animation και η βιντεοκάμερα μπορούν να δώσουν το επιθυμητό αποτέλεσμα, αλλά το 3-D animation θα χρειαστεί πολλή δουλειά για να πετύχει ένα αξιόλογο αισθητικό αποτέλεσμα, δε σηκώνει συμβιβασμούς. Οπότε στην περίπτωση έλειψης χρόνου, καλύτερα βιντεοκάμερα.

3. Εφ' όσον μιλάμε για κάμερα playthrough τύπου Rahdo, τότε είναι καλό να φαίνεται ο ομιλιτής για να μεταδίδει και με εξωγλωσσικά στοιχεία τα απαιτούμενα μηνύματα. Σε περίπτωση 3-D βέβαια, εξαρτάται από τη γενικότερη αισθητική κατεύθυνση.

4. Εφ' όσον δεν πρόκειται για γνωστό reviewer του οποίου τη γνώμη να εμπιστεύεται το κοινό, πιστεύω ότι το μόνο που μπορεί να εξυπηρετήσει είναι κάποια πολύ σύντομη περίληψη στο τέλος, όχι μεγάλη εισαγωγή ή υποκειμενικά σχόλια.

5. Αν υπάρχει η διάθεση, σίγουρα δεν ενοχλούν κανέναν και βοηθάνε πολύ κόσμο του οποίου η μητρική γλώσσα δεν είναι τα αγγλικά.

Ελπίζω να βοηθάει... καλή επιτυχία, περιμένουμε να το δούμε!

I only watch play through videos to get a sense of the flow of the game and to learn as many rules as I can. Pretty basic but the video has to make sure that these come through.

Take a lesson from Game of Thrones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0XRVTacNxI

I've watched about a hundred reviews and playthroughs, in order to get a sense of the game, to learn the rules and to get the opinion of the reviewer (usually Tom Vasel or the Shut up & Sit down gang). By far, the best rules explanation and game overview has been from GoT. By far.

If you want to learn the rules and get a clear idea of how the game works, you definitely want a high quality 3d animation. If you're looking for opinions, than you want a live action critique.

Some of the 2D graphics in TableTop are very useful.

As for explaining the game, I don't understand why the speakers should be shown - I'd like to see their hands sure, but anything else is a waste of screen estate and bandwidth.

If you include subtitles, please either make sure they can be switched off (.srt), or that they don't overlap anything viewers may want to see or blend into the background.

The only thing I don't want to hear is, "I'm not going to explain all that; there's loads of other videos you can watch to show that bit."

Yeah? Then I'll go and watch those instead then.
