So there's the return of Achievement Update. Now, as I mentioned before I have something to ask of you guys. My question is, should I start doing video blogs? I have my new Alienware notebook (by the way, this was the first blog done on it) and the webcam is such good quality I could do video blogs on it that are super clear. So should I? Do you guys want to see my ugly face talk about games? Please post your comments below and I will decide in the coming days with an answer on Monday whether or not I'm going to do it.

Thanks.

Until next time, yes I'm returning to my normal schedule on Monday.

I think a video blog would be kind of cool. I could never do a video blog, hides face in shame. Also, good to see these (Achievement Updates) back up.

Posted by GamerGeek360
@gingertastic_10: Yeah it was later than I expected but I got them up and that's all that matters.

WELCOME BACK, ACHIEVEMENT SNATCHING BUDDY O' MINE!!!  I've slowed my roll with you being gone.  So you're enjoying Beatles: Rock Band?  Also, good luck with GH5 achievements.  LOL 
 
As for video blogs, man...I'm divided on that.  Personally, I dig the written word above other things, but if you can have an entertaining video blog that isn't just you staring into a camera and talking, that would be just as cool. 
 
Really, that's up to you, man.  Either way, I'll keep reading!

Posted by Claude

I wonder how many of the younger generation are coming into the Beatles Rock Band fresh? Could be a nice little history lesson. 
 
I watch some vlogs, but if they get too long, I'm out. You should just try one and see what happens.

Posted by RHCPfan24

Nice to see you back. The Beatles: Rock Band has some pretty great achievements and I have all the same ones you have, except the one for chapter challenges. I haven't gotten around to finishing them yet. Still, music games FTW!

Posted by Breadfan

Achievements woooo!

Posted by MKHavoc

After playing three different rhythm games in a single week haven't you gotten sick of them?  As for your question, I think a video blog could work as long as you keep it short.  Most people probably won't want to watch a 10+ minute long video.

Glad to see the return.
 
I'd be interested in watching a video blog, as long as it was about something other than achievements

No I'm not sick of them because I love them. And plus, I haven't been able to play them much lately anyways. Also, the vlogs should be short.

Oh it definitely would not be about achievements. It would be about whatever I want to talk about but don't have time to type up since I'm really busy now.
