Default Intergrating Youtube with reviews

We have links to Amiga and Commodore games on some reviews, so why not add an option for links to Youtube videos too? I dont necessarily mean that every game has to have a video, but that just make them from time to time.

Well, there are many things to check first, to add a video on a page/forum html should be activated.
As far as I know we can add videos into new pages, but not into game pages and reviews.
We could activate it into forum, but it's dangerous.


russ would probably rick-roll everybody

Um, I just suggested of adding a way to add simple link to the reviews. No new pages or forums or whatever. And no danger of rick-rolling either as only updaters would do that.

Link can be added without too many problems, it's possible
What kind of videos are you talking about?
Walkthrough, gameplay, intro?

Basically something that would demonstrate the gameplay/game itself. Intro would be part of the video too.

Im not sure about walktroughs though. Those usually tend to be in dozens of parts and linking them all in the review would take too much space.

EDIT: Oh, and we'd have to do the videos ourself's, not just link up on one's uploaded by Mr. anonymous-what's-her-name.

Usually sites would do that only after they can support a constant, if not daily flow of the written reviews.

^ Right. And also then, don't get to complicated. Video making, uploading and maintaining is simply too much. Let's focus on our target: Gather games, review these games incl. screenshots and maintain the downloads of game archives.

it would be definitely a good idea

this has been discussed many times before and it was also approven i think, it's just that our awesome developement studentis team disappeared so

btw i see absolutely no need for daily updates or whatever for that. it just doesn't make sense, how is it related. it's like i wanted to buy some fine tuning for my car and the salesman asked me how much sex do i have per day. nonsense
