This is of particular note because:
- It doesn't accommodate for Fair Use, so use of gameplay footage for purposes of a review is out - especially games where the publisher has shut down (like THQ).
In other words, with this new adjustment of YouTube's policy - Fair Use doesn't exist, and nothing is permitted unless it's expressly permitted... specifically for video games. Everything else is business as usual.
This leads to the added bummer of the fact that unless you have a setup that allows streaming over Twitch, there isn't anywhere else to go to monetize your videos. Blip.Tv has changed their setup to only accept established content producers, and they specifically do not want Let's Plays or long sequences of gameplay footage. This is one of the reasons why Angry Joe and Lotus Prince left Blip. DailyMotion runs ads, but there's no way for content producers to get any of that.
The Vlogbrothers (Hang & John Green) started Subbable as a way for content producers to have a more direct financial relationship with their fans, without having to content with the monetization issues of YouTube & Blip, but Subbable doesn't work for smaller creators. Specifically, if you want to apply for Subbable, you need to have at least 5,000 unique followers. That will work for guys like Angry Joe, Tobuscus, or TotalBiscuit, but not for the guys who are trying to reach those lofty heights. The best alternate option out there is, I think, Patreon.
Till they start losing money and people stop going to their site no one at google will even take notice. That's how this stuff works. Maybe once mainstream newspapers and stuff start running stories it will become big enough, but till then nothing will change.
Mainstream like the BBC?
I think some time ago, we agreed to separate FF3/4 and their DS remakes. Don't quote me on that, though.
Yep, this was agreed some time ago. The remakes are different enough from the originals to warrant separate pages.
Good to know. I did a search on the combine forum to see if there was a previous thread discussing combining the two games, and I didn't see anything on the topic. That, and I saw the DS release of Final Fantasy III on the release list on the primary page, and made an assumption that it turns out to be false. Ah well, all's well that ends well.
Primary Page: http://www.giantbomb.com/final-fantasy-iii/3030-21463/
Duplicate Page: http://www.giantbomb.com/final-fantasy-iii/3030-31147/
The duplicate is specific to the DS Release of Final Fantasy III, which is already included in the main page. I've moved the new information from the DS Specific page over to the Primary page, so in theory you can do the combination without losing any information.
Damn. While I'd listened to him on the Bombcast, I remember meeting him at SDCC 2010 at the Whiskey Media meet-up, and he (along with everyone else - IIIRC Sara, Rorie, Norm and Will were there) were great to meet and talk to. However, what really stuck out in my mind was that Ryan thought that I looked like a younger Jeff - enough so that he took a picture with his smart-phone to send to Jeff.
So, I offer my deepest condolences to Ryan's family and friends. He was a helluva guy.
Really great series of articles! As far as a vote on your next topic goes, the 38 Studios thing sounds particularly interesting - especially tax credits for game development studios is becoming something of A Thing.
This is really, really cool. The only thing that's keeping it from having an even bigger leg up over BackLoggery, would be some sort of way of including your GOG collection, but I'm not sure GOG has an API that would let you connect people's accounts (never mind tracking things like "played/unplayed") - so that's probably a moot point.
@believer258: I've posted my Nintendo Power Retrospective series of videos from my blog on the board in the past (in addition to posting my video reviews as reviews), and they weren't locked. As it is, my purpose for posting my video here is less to promote my YouTube channel, and more to share my thoughts on the game and hopefully to have some discussion of some of the points I brought up in the video (for example, the importance of environmental storytelling in speculative fiction games) - as well as taking an opportunity to laugh together at some of the dumber bits of the game's story.
@immortalsaiyan: I wouldn't call it amazing, but I would say that the game has extremely good gameplay, and I think that it's a game that would really benefit from an co-op option. I hope that if we get a Inafune finds a way to include co-op in the game.
