I originally posted this on the news article but I thought I'd share it as blog post too:
First of all I thought it was very fitting that Anime Vice wasn't even listed as a site in the survey, that says it all. Just axe the site and do something else with the hosting space.
I also feel Whiskey Media as a whole has felt forced into providing content because they now have paying customers, a lot of humour has felt forced recently and a lot of content has felt like a lot less enthusiasm went into it than say... before there was premium memberships. I understand you guys have been working your asses off to provide us with great content, and it is great content, but it feels like you don't much enjoy a lot of the things you're doing for us. Quick Looks are one area I've noticed what seems like a lack of enthusiasm, whereas 18 months ago terrible games played in Quick Looks just made for extra humour, now it just feels as if everyone is thinking "Urgh".
Happy Hours have also gotten pretty stale and I think you're aware of this, doing them every week, in the same format has gotten pretty boring for us and it seems you guys are bored of it too. One a month would be great, as long as you can be excited for it, if you're not totally hyped for providing content, just do something new. I'd rather you guys mixed it up and enjoyed it yourselves, than forcing something you'd rather not do.
Which brings me on to Endurance Runs... I'm pretty much sick of hearing "Endurance Run" now, as if it was an annual thing in the first place? Just because it was done 2 years in a row doesn't mean it should happen every year. As Jeff has said before, he can't even say "if the right game comes along" anymore because people just spam him suggestions on what he should play. If a game does come along that you want to make an Endurance Run out of then great, if not, please don't just force yourselves to play through a game to please the fan base. It would be so obvious and not very fun to watch.
That's as honest as I can be, right now, I'm not sure I'll resubscribe until I feel you guys are a bit more enthusiastic about the content you're providing, plus £50 is a lot of money if I'm uncertain about things. So there's my 2 pence worth. Feel free to let me know what you think...
