  4. I don't have any. I just talk to buddybros on The Steams. Let me give you a taste of this evening:

    Show Spoiler
    11:57 PM - MHC: My 2nd character's story is that he fell in love with Sera. But then when Sera said "Oh its because we both like women yeah?" My Character was crushed, and felt as though he could never love a women ever again. After discovering Dorian being gay while helping him confront his Father, my character lied about knowing more about gays to establish a relationship out of experimentation, but after having sex my character realizes that he isn't gay and that there was no women to love him. But then he really got to know Josephine and felt attracted by her intelligence, hard work, passion, and pride of her family. He became interested, and began showing shines of flirtation. Leliana picks up on this flirting and then confronts my character, my character broke any doubt he had about his feelings for Josephine by admitting to Leliana that he does love Josephine, helping him come terms to himself of ever loving a women ever again. Leliana acting as a big sister to Josephine warns me to not play with around with her. My character returns to Josephine explaining the situation and admitted my character's true feelings to her, and then later kiss sealing the bond between the two of them. (Still in story progression of my second playthrough, so more love between the two awaits.)

    ..... I have too much fun with these roleplaying games. I'm still disappointed my first female character couldn't date Cole. But if anyone wants to hear her story just ask xD.

    I like Matt for his interviews, but I dislike youtube reviews in general and generally despise that modern trend of doing everything in video rather than text. I'd much rather read a review at my own (pretty quick) pace than listen to someone talk for 10 minutes.

    OneCheekyKunt The truth is that there is no good oldschool RPG YouTube personality. Most of them have a broader focus than that, and even the ones that seem to like RPGs more than other genres seem obsessed with analyzing the plots of BioWare games.

    There is a niche here for somebody to fill - I'd love for there to be an official Codex YouTube channel - but it's a lot of work. The closest thing we have right now might be LPers like RK47 and SniperHF:

    The Glorious RPGCodex doesn't get their information from shitty Youtube videos and Twatter twats done by millennials with the attention span of a gnat, for an audience of millennials with the attention span of a gnat. We actually have a novel system of ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAMES and forming opinions, then discussing them. It's some pretty out-there, avant-garde stuff but that's what makes us the most prestigious RPG magazine in the universe.

    As for Infinitron's suggestion, unfortunately "everything is shit" doesn't make for good entertainment. The kids these days just want to hear how AWESUM everything is and why they're such a good person for buying it.

    In that case, I don't think there is one. Matt is one-of-a-kind. Closest thing I know of is a couple of interviews the Ultima Codex did, but that's naturally rather limited: https://www.youtube.com/user/ultimacodex/videos

    This is actually something the Codex could do more easily, but I don't think there's any real demand for it. Although I do think live interviews can be useful for when you really want to dig deeply into something with lots of follow-up questions.

    I really enjoy the videos of Tasteful Understated Nerdrage. He works extremely slow but has a few cool videos out there, talking about C&C for example.

    dofrtae has made an hour long review of Wizardry 7.



    He knows his shit IMO, even though his way of talking isn't the most enthusiastic, his videos are pleasant to watch. At least he's not spergy like many other youtubers.

    Any video review under fifteen minutes is generally not worth watching

    Joseph Anderson is very good, although most of his reviews are for non-rpg things.
    Yeah, but he hasn't made a video in years.

    In general, text would be better, but its not like there's a large amount of good in-depth written rpg reviews out there, so one takes what one can get.

    In general I think Zarniwoops bang on, Youtubes not worth shit overall and I value me own opinion more. That said i've watched some stuff from GaminGHD an hes pretty fucking inclined and informed.

    Few worthy examples:

    I thought the whole point of this place was to escape 'youtube channels for rpg reviews/discussion'.

    On the contrary. Any video above the mark of 15 minutes starts to be questionable. The incredibly high and praised number of youtubers like joseph anderson or matthewmatossis who demonstrate a several lacking synthesis is overwhelming. 2 hours videos with extremely poor editing and repeating the same points over and over again just to please your patrons with a lot of content, but with very tiny substance.

    The only youtuber worth watching in this regard is Mark brown. His series reviewing The legnd of Zelda dungeons is impressive, with very detailed points and maps/diagram to ilustrate. Even if you disagree on his opinions, you always feel that the time was worth of it.
