From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
This video starts out in the normal unboxing way – here’s the latest GW box about to be released, let’s look at the sprues, books etc. inside.
Then Brent morphs this into a commentary on unboxing videos, how most of them are a waste of time, or at least sub-optimal, and how GW could be doing things a lot better in terms of their marketing push for new products.
I could only agree. I remember watching an unboxing for Blood Bowl 2020 and being underwhelmed at the visuals of someone picking sprues out of a box, telling me what was on them, and then putting the sprue to the side. Repeat until I fall asleep.
I have to admit though, I don’t know exactly what the fix is. Group unboxing followed by painting followed by review followed by battle report? Maybe, but that sounds like a lot of work to make.
