I realise this is highly uncouth, but there’s only so much SUSD to go around meaning I have to go looking elsewhere for more boardgamey goodness. They’ve definitely brought the problem on themselves though by having high pr- actually, just by having production values.
See, my problem is that I just can’t stand ‘shows’ that are nothing more than single take, talk to camera, make it up as you go along filled with ums and ahs. There’s also a distinctive lack of… charisma, for want of a better word. Some do better than others, but even the ever-present Tom Vassel fails on the first test at the least.
So are there any other sites / shows / YT channels out there that are making great content around the hobby? As the only other one I can think of apart from SUSD that is producing ‘quality’ content is Tabletop with Wil Wheaton (and whatever you’re feelings about it / him, you can’t deny it’s well made).
It’s kinda sad when ‘production values’ refers not to having big sets and special effects, but just ‘someone that understands editing software and the concept of a retake’…
