Hey Eric, I hope you can read this just so you get my thoughts on Uncharted TV.
I have never really been a huge fan of it. It seemed like such an innovative idea, yet it turned into a very unimpressive feature fast. For a long time it was constantly just Top Plays videos, and I'm not sure who is to blame for that. And I guess I shouldn't speak for everyone, but to me that was just very boring. Anyways, those are just some initial thoughts.
The real problem for me started last August. I had spent a while editing a community montage. When it was finished, I uploaded it to youtube and it got a lot of success and praise. We sent it your way, and you said it was too long (14 mins), and it had to be under 10 minutes. It was upsetting but I completely understood. However, I still had hopes of getting a video up on UCTV eventually. So, last december I made an Uncharted edit called DragonBolt. It was 4 minutes 30 seconds long. About a week prior to it's completion, RobinGaming's Connected montage was uploaded to UCTV (5 minutes 30 seconds). When DragonBolt was sent, you replied saying that this video was again too long, as all future vids had to be under 3 minutes. You can imagine this was frustrating, but I tried to not let it bother me that much. However, when you uploaded that kid's friend list video AFTER you rejected DragonBolt, I was shocked. Especially considering the friend's list video was over 3 minutes.
What am I getting at? Well, to be honest, I don't know. Consider it an airing of grievances. I would just like to say that I worked very hard on all the videos I sent to you guys for UCTV, and I hope that in the future I can actually see my hard work pay off.
Just as long as they DON'T include friendlist videos. lol.
That cracked me up as well!
Hopefully by enforcing the 3 minute rule, we'll see less "BPOTW" videos which shouldn't be on UCTV in the first place.
They should also state that intros should be no more than 10 seconds long. Vids are being put up with 30+ second intros, by which time you've already found a game so you'll never see the video......
No self-aggrandizing videos in UCTV plz... we need stuff that will help the Uncharted community as a whole (i.e. a Co-op tutorial or something).
