I just completed a teaser for my new you-tube channel:

I aim to post regular shmup video reviews. I'm still working on the format, but I intend the videos to be irreverent, and pitched at the average console gamer.

I'm thinking of doing one game per episode, covering the history of the game, the various platform and arcade versions, a summary of the "hook" (the mechanic that makes this shmup different from other shmups) and a brief summary of strategies.

I'm grateful for any suggestions you may have.

I'd probably get a kick out of watching these videos. Do you take requests? If so, review Truxton, paying special attention to the Mega Drive version.

My only suggestion would be to keep the videos short, precise and to the point. I always end up getting bored when a review goes for 10+ minutes and there's a lot of umm-ing and ahh-ing. Don't focus on one particular aspect for too long and convey a lot of energy.

I love watching retro game reviews from JamesNintendoNerd (http://www.youtube.com/my_subscriptions?pi=0&ps=20&sf=added&sa=0&dm=2&s=w4DYSgSaKoo&as=1), maybe you got take some tips from his videos. In contrast, I find videos from Happy Console Gamer (http://www.youtube.com/user/HappyConsoleGamer) & InecomCompany (http://www.youtube.com/user/InecomCompany) a natural sedative.

Anyhow, good luck with it all. I'll be watching and have subscribed to your channel (SentinelGames).

You know what, it was his NES reviews that got me motivated to dust off the camcorder.
