What!? A video review is usually worse. You can't know where the important information is without watching the whole of it. A nicely written review with pictures and section titles allows you to quickly peruse it and find the information that is important for you. Video reviews are just a giant waste of time.

Well, an example of extra info you could give was about a certain mag you doubted would work in the Scar. That's good to mention, but now that you've done so, explain your observations how and why it wouldn't be compatible. Suggest alternatives, if there are any. Or workarounds. Remember, the point of a review is to educate the audience. Do that for us, especially the tards like me.

Thanks for the constructive criticism, any useful input is appreciated and helps us to better develop the blog.

I've added a couple more posts and we should have more on the way soon. I've got a couple more posts written up, but I'd prefer to post them on a more regular basis rather than spam a number of them all at once. I'm also waiting on some packages I ordered to arrive, so hopefully I'll have more reviews up in a little bit.

Also as a side note... I won't be doing too many gun reviews at the moment (though I should have one coming up) as the outdoor gaming season is pretty much over for me until spring and I won't have chance to review them to a degree with which I can satisfactorily complete a write-up.

Hey, reviewing addons, components, retailers, and everything can help us. Don't limit yourself to BB throwers.

I do see what you're saying. I just think watching someone actually use [Whatever item] is invaluable. I'm probably wrong and a video review is not always better. I just find you get something more out of a good video.

I also prefer a book on tape to reading, though.

We've got a number of misc gear and accessory reviews coming out soon, but hopefully they won't bore you guys. We probably won't be doing too many gun reviews at the moment with it being winter and all but it should pick up next year, we've definitely got some interesting things in the works.

We've actually discussed the idea of doing video reviews briefly in the past and its definitely something we're considering once we've determined an effective format/template to work with.

But as we're just starting out and still have things to sort out and improve, using YouTube/videos as a medium for our reviews might not be the best idea at the moment, as the time investment needed to record, post process, and upload videos is quite considerable. What we could do is create a brief overview video that covers the basics, or demonstrates the function of something to supplement our write ups (let us know if you're interested in that), but a written review would still be the primary medium, as it allows us to efficiently and effectively cover and express our thoughts and experience with all aspects of whatever we're reviewing. That being said, we're still working things out and experimenting with various ideas so almost anything is possible.
