Another one of my half-baked ideas …
Guild voicechat logs as focus groups.
Think about it.
Beyond the obvious comedic value, there’s the unvarnished truth laid bare. Sample:
Guildmate01: Would it kill them to fix the fucking targeting in this game?
Guildmate02: Seriously man. How hard is it to code tab?
Guildmate03: Pet AI in this game makes Baby Jesus cry.
Guildmate01: Dude, Jesus isn’t a baby. There’s no sequel to the Passion of Christ.
Guildmate02: Any chance we can focus on this mission?
Guildmate01: Hydras can suck me off.
Guildmate03: Big surprise there. (Hmm, that coulda been a shot.)
Guildmate02: Ok, is it me? Or is an AE mob at our level a cheat?
Guildmate05: Sup guys?
Guildmates01, 02, 03 and 04: OMG shutup, we’re dying here!
Not that marketing is my gig (no WAY!), but that idea is gold. And it’s all yours for $49.95 per log.
