Not sure if this has been posted before. The Frag Dollls, the gaming "clan" put together and sponsered by Ubisoft, have been releasing board game reviews:



Gears of War: The Board Game


Halo ActionClix


Panzer General: Allied Assault

Just watched the GOW review from them... they did a good job getting all the important information in, in a very quick and well explained fashion. I'll keep an eye open for more reviews from them.

Wow, never heard anybody call a Panzerkampfwagen IV a "PeeZee Four", before. I do not think I like it. Somehow, it emasculates the vehicle.

Also in the last review, it sounds like she says, "silicone-based AI", which of course should be "silicon-based".

"Silicone-based AI" sounds like the punchline to a bad geek joke about blondes.

This is cool. Get good looking girls that play video games. Have them review board games based on video games. Get new board game players from pool of video game players.

Not really getting an informed opinion here about the game. But, yeah I'll watch a bunch of cheerleaders talk a game up to me. I deem this acceptable.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Because:

A) Hatin' is what I do.

B) It's a sad reflection of us as men when a girl is reviewing games for us because she's reasonably cute, and this is supposed to get out attention.

Dude, it's not really sad that attractive members of the opposite sex get the attention of heterosexuals. It's nature.

I don't agree. It may seem like a neanderthal viewpoint, but everybody likes looking at what attracts them. It's been that way since creation (in whatever form you believe that took), and isn't something we should be ashamed of or feel the need to pretend doesn't exist.

I'm happily married to my best friend and I still think she's hot after 8 years together. But I'll always take a decent-looking girl reviewing my games over a fat, bald guy from Barcelona called Pedro.

Cheers.

Way too far on the Ameritrash side of the spectrum for my taste. Admittedly, those being board games based on video games that's to be expected but I'd really like to see a broader selection.

The reviews them self seem quite nice considering they're just starting out.

its the game review quality that really have the last word, i'd rather watch Tom Vasel and Sam Healy reviews even though they both not male model quality.. then again if Stacy Kiebler is doing a game review profesionally and showed her knowledge in that game and not just being a pretty face, i watch her too.,..

point is dont care who review the game as long as the review is good and the reviewer know his source material...

I agree, I don't care if it is a man or a woman doing the review as long as the quality of the review is good.

though i wouldnt mind a bit if a celeb do a boardgame review. I'd like to see Vin Diesel do DnD review (he is great fan of DnD if im not mistaken)..



and that nice girl Felicia Day who is a World of Warcraft player do a game review, definitely got a solid background in gaming..

The video is far more professional and competent than most game videos I have seen. They did a good job of summarising the key points of the game in a clear and concise manner. These sort of cross over reviews can only help our hobby. The concept of 'girls can't play games' is slowly being removed in computer games, hopefully they will help towards removing that ingrained attitude in board games as well.

agreed on all points.. though i wish someone go further and make a video review of boardgame with an Orang-Utan playing it .. these animals are mimicking human very very good..

They can walk your dog



They fish for you



They even fight for you



instead of playing Arkham Horror solo, why not add orang-utan playing as investigators..
