I think the main problem is that the users who either a) only listen to the Bombcast, b) only see the Quicklooks on Youtube, would probably benefit the most from the curation, but are likely not on the forums and therefore can't give feedback. I'm going to guess that Valve doesn't track "hits", just followers?

I would say limiting it to recent releases and staff members' discretion?

This was an interesting read, a rare, honest look at what goes on inside a studio!

@korlic: I kind of wish those videos took into account the traditional notion that a woman is the primary caregiver for children and how that influences a woman's career choices (perhaps taking a job with lower pay and less hours but with more time to spend caring for children, and so on), or how that influences employers (not hiring a woman because, god forbid, she might one day want to have children and work less or even quit).

Well, that was embarassing. I tried posting this earlier today but got 404ed and kept hitting post! Oh well, clean up, isle five.

@shuareborn: Haven't seen anything online yet and ENB played the PC version, so nothing there yet.

@do_the_manta_ray: I think he mentioned that in the beginning. He's trying out a new format, him off-screen means a more descriptive section, showing what he's talking about, on-screen means his opinion on the game as a whole. Granted, it is a bit ham-fisted way of sectioning them off and it doesn't really work out right, but it gets the job done.

@koolaid: I would say Dark Souls 1. Others might disagree though.

So EpicNameBro, a Youtuber who is probably most famous for his Souls playthroughs and has worked with Namco Bandai on Dark Souls 2's guide, has made a video in which he discusses a preview build he received from Namco Bandai. And as you would expect from him, he goes in-depth on the combat system and the similarities and differences between this and the Souls games.

Of course, this is an early build but first impressions seem to be positive. It does just enough things differently from the Souls games to be interesting (the Perfect Timing system, "kill streaks", banking experience) but personally the rigid (and mandatory!) magic system, fixed protagonist and really slow pace turn me off.

Anyway, what do you think?
