Default Why no reviews for other than classic maps.

Just curious. SS2, SSHD and SS3 all have loads of maps to review at this point...

I would like to get to them at some point. Feel free to review them as you see fit.

Eventually I would like this section to also be about other levels, DLCs, mods of games including serious sam mods and levels for other games.

I'd totally dig a SF:L maps review at some point. I can't review my own shit.

I've been thinking of reviewing Glade of Dreams though. And Sams home. But yeah...

With the video game rubrique up now, you are free to review any video game you like as well.

I still want to do reviews at some point for SE3 maps... At some point.

Yeah, this is something that was planned (just take a look at my job-title). We originally planned it to be a video-review-like thing, and.... not much after that really. I've been planning to share some of my ideas with my fellow reviewers of how would such a video look like, but I always forgot/had no time. I write it up today or tomorrow, thanks for the push people!

My advice, don't over-plan it. If you do, you'd be so caught up in the overhead that you will never get around to actually doing the review.

Start the level, play it, record you playing it, later dub over it, pause if you must, record your voice explaining why something sucks or why something is amazingly well designed, etc etc, then edit the video, render, publish, Bam. Done.

If I recorded it, then it would be pretty low quality, so someone else have to do that. Also, I planned it as a video where all content reviewers are present, so we could review the stuff from a more broader point of view.

Not really, but similar. More like a separate recorded talk that is later put on the video.

IIRC, there was this guy named Gimperr making LP's/reviews of your maps in coop, and if I recall correctly, you appeared in one of his videos, the museum one if I'm not wrong.

Would be cool to record a map while playing with the creator of that map.

I do hope there IS more than 1 content reviewer. Less bias the better.

Yeah that one video. Not proud of it myself, I was not only tired but my old shit mic made me barely understandable and my thick accent to be even less understandable.
