Level Up Should Use YouTube
Popular Filipina gamer babe Alodia Gosiengfiao got a bit of talk time at game publisher Level Up's event today. The audience liked it.
I'd like to see more of that -- not just at events, but something more persistent. Level Up should sponsor an Alodia gaming vlog on YouTube. She's already comfortable with that platform. Vlog sponsorship is certainly not without precedent. Furthermore, YouTube is huge in the Philippines. Her videos would virally reach a Hell of a lot more online gamers than her live appearances could, at a fraction of the cost.
Oh, and Ben, you can get more cool machinima for your fan video contests with YouTube's new contest platform. Check out the first implementation. Level Up could have the distinction of being the first Philippine company to use it. If you want that distinction, better be quick: your competitor Mobius just discovered YouTube. Bet Rakion could make passable machinima.
