BitesizeUGC - 3 minute video reviews of missions
Hello all, I wanted to introduce a series of video reviews that myself and Capt.PFDennis have been putting together for a few weeks now called BitesizeUGC, a subdivision of the bigger BroadcastUGC show.

The idea behind this show is that we select a "new" Foundry mission from the weekly "Featured" foundry list located on StarbaseUGC and review it based on the following four categories, each rated out of five stars:

- Story
- Map Design
- Tech
- Difficulty

All of our mission reviews are available by watching the segment in the middle of the BroadcastUGC playthroughs located at, or at our YouTube Channel, located at:

Here's a list of missions we've reviewed so far:

Episode 1 - 10/7/11 - "The Prudential Use of Violence" by xdevnull
Episode 2 - 10/14/11 - "Haunted Scarefest" by hbomb420
Episode 3 - 10/21/11 - "Mere Mortal Enemies" by Pure_big_bad_boat_man
Episode 4 - 10/28/11 - "Missing from the Mirror" by deffdog
Episode 5 - 11/4/11 - "Dereliction Duty" by Nagorak
Episode 6 - 11/11/11 - "The City of Polmar Ree" by alimac30
Episode 7 - 11/18/11 - "Locally Untranslated" by ogremerc
Episode 8 - 11/25/11 - "From the Stars...Life" by Magellan_Lin
Episode 9 - 12/2/11 - "More Data Part 1: Theft of Honor" by Hauriant

Just watched episode one and two and thought they were great.
Straight to the point, informative, short and entertaining.

Keep them coming!

These are great. They may just be the right length and format to cultivate interest in the foundry once all the new F2P players come wandering into ESD all wide eyed on shaky wee legs like newborn baby deer...:D

"What is the foundry?" they will ask...

..and we now have a link to post that will best represent it.

Should get this on facebook if it's not already..?

Like I said before, the guys at StarbaseUGC are doing a great job! I think that this new video reviews of missions are fantastic! Keep at the good job!

Thanks to all who support this new endeavor. It is our hope to bring a little something different to the many review formats that presently exist. We purposely do not give an overall rating, as Foundry authors ourselves, we understand that these missions are constantly evolving projects that may end up much differently than when we played them. As a matter of fact, we have been discussing the possibility of replaying missions that have already been reviewed, upon request by the authors, if they would like their project re-evaluated after applying fixes or changes based on the initial review. Let us know what you think. We greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks for the review, guys. I really appreciate it. I'm also going to place a link to it in my mission thread, if that's ok.
