Kudos to you for making this video!

i've watched many "let's plays" over the years. Before buying any game, i watch a handful of LPs to make sure i'd play it. For me, i don't like alot of decision making conversation, or off-topic talk. Don't like alot of customization time either (is nice to see that we can change names and such, but i prefer just one quick telling of it, not to watch it being done). i like shorter videos with talk all geared to explain game features. Short and sweet and to the point. A glimpse into the game, and a sharing of what's cool, and what might not be so cool.

i don't watch walkthroughs and such, just the lets plays. So my perspective is limited to that. i like your video. My biggest suggestion would be to plan ahead. Be ready with a quick explanation of customization such as name changes etc. Then get right into it. When playing, share some of the decision making, but don't spend much time on it. Just get to it. Is good stuff tman, i hope you keep at it!

It was pretty good.

Good stuff you did:
You played the game before shooting the video, so we didn't have to watch you stumble through first experiences with the interface. Good on you to do homework.
You were into what was going on within the game, which is infectious.

Stuff that could be improved:
Several times you were reading to yourself out loud, which is a little frustrating for listeners.

Bad stuff you didn't do:
You didn't break the forth wall and start rambling about off topic or personal life stuff.
You didn't need to express failure and laugh at what a lousy player you are. That bit about "I might suck" was merely being self-conscious, and you'll probably get over that with experience.
You didn't express a need to be The Funny Guy, or The Game Critic, both of which tend to stink when overdone.
You didn't make it a tutorial, where someone learning the game is pretending to teach the game. Those are lame.

Oh one more thing.. the ads, they suck. Generally i avoid all videos which the user has added ads. And it takes a very very special video for me to share an ad tagged video with friends. User caused ads aren't cool.
