We'd love to do a longer show, but a production of this length takes about a week in post-production. As our video team supports all Cryptic and PWE games, it's hard to make it any longer as they produce a ton of videos every month. This might possible in the future, but for now, "On Screen!" will typically be around this length once a quarter. I sincerely appreciate the feedback, though.
Uh, you realize that Borticus was doing a better show, with real enthusiasm, lots of actual IN GAME FOOTAGE, better graphics, with just him and Chris IN THEIR GARAGE! C'MON MAN, the guy is WORKING for you now. Two On Screens now that have been very short and meh. I actually expect to get STOked when I watch On Screen and it provides no more than 10% stokage every time.

That was a nice little interview with Denise Crosby. All the promo talk aside, I think you notice that she still cares about her character and her involvement with "Star Trek". It was a good choice to bring her back and I can't wait to hear her take on STO's Sela - I do remember her voiceovers in "Star Trek: Armada" and they were pretty great... good times!
Not that "Legacy of Romulus" is not already shaping up to be pretty cool, but that video got me hyped more for the expansion than I would've guessed. So, a job well done!

People forget that this is not a fan made podcast, it's a promotional video made by the producers to update the community about the state of the game. The length and frequency is appropriate.
I think Kiki did a good job, Brandon too. It was better than the videos bioware or turbine do for their games.
I live in an alternate universe, where j.j. abrams and cryptic never existed,
where R.S.E. is what it always should be.
Nice to see some official video material devoted to Denise Crosby and her role in STO, but all that early part is so artificial and forced it's just painful. I know thats the whole purpose of such a "show" and you cannot compare it to "normal" podcasts, but I simply see no point as it is. The girl is there to look pretty and pretend to be excited for the game. And you could have done soooo much more with the content, like presenting a full overview of the Legacy Pack, instead of "oh gee I'm so excited and I cannot wait to play it...".
I guess what I'm saying is that artificial marketing is worse than something spontaneous and honest - even something like a podcast interview. I know you've done the latter several times, which is why this "On Screen" just feels wrong for me... But I guess I'm just not the main target for such material.
