Roll Call

Hello world!

If you’re reading this, you’re probably saying “Wow, bunnyhop has new written content! I wonder why it’s been so long?”

That’s why I’m here to give you an explanation.

At some point around mid-December, we decided to rustle our priorities from producing a mix of written and video content to exclusively producing video content. There were several reasons why, a few of which I will list below:

  • In December, we noticed that way more people watched our videos than read our articles
  • At some point in January, a metric shitload of people started watching our videos
  • Those same people didn’t come over to read our articles
  • When a controversial news topic comes up, making a video about it yields our opinion far more exposure than writing an article does
  • All things considered, there’s more to be gained from being an upstart YouTube channel than being an upstart gaming website

This could still be a nifty place for a production blog or something similar, but as far as making entertaining vidya-related content goes, baking it for YouTube is the recipe for success.

That being said, the website isn’t totally a ghost town just yet. We periodically update it to link to new videos. We also talk to plenty of fans who use it as a portal to access the YouTube channel, but we never hear anyone say they were fans of the daily news blogs and weekly written features we did up ’till Christmas.

Plus, writing them was a bit of a shot in the dark. Despite Google having a great set of analytics tools, we really have no way of knowing if anyone reading this is a human being or a spam bot. The channel, on the other hand, is a hotbed of daily activity. So I propose one desperate method for measuring traffic: if you’re human, please please please leave a comment.

It doesn’t have to be a worthwhile, thought-out comment. It doesn’t even have to be in English. Sit on the keyboard, mash your face against it, or put your cat on it. I don’t care, as long as it’s not linking to faux Gucci apparel bags, we’ll know it’s you. If you just leave any kind of comment at all, we’ll have some measure of how many people actually read this stuff, and can adjust our habits accordingly.

 

Thanks!

    Can I fall asleep on my keyboard and that be my award-winning comment?

    That was the face mash technique. Had to do it several times for length though.

    This is probably, all things considered, a good idea. I never come here unless there’s a twitter/facebook post about it.

  3. I love your videos, and I was admittedly drawn by the youtube channel (specifically the Rage critical close-up series), but since liking you guys on Facebook I’ve been paying closer attention to the website. I’ll be reading your posts, but I completely understand if you make fewer. I do some video and audio editing for my youtube channel, and I know it’s a lot of work, especially when you have other commitments AND need to capture the footage too.

    Anyway, keep on keepin’ on.

    I’ve been watching your videos since pretty close to the beginning. I knew you had a website but didn’t give it much thought. Saw one of your tweets on Facebook, followed it to Twitter, and found another tweet about how only three people actually visited the website. Felt kinda guilty so I went to the website link and here I am!

    Sorry, but that “mash your face against it” was way too tempting. Yep, apparently videos are the way to go. Oh, these times! People don’t have patience for written words anymore!

    yay!!!

    I read a couple of your articles after seeing a video but I only check in every couple of months so focusing on video content wouldn’t be a big loss for me

    Cool site, guys!
    I actually found it via your YT channel, so I guess I’m one of the new people post-Xmas.
    I personally prefer *all* types of media, whichever is best at the time.
    i.e. Videos when you want shiny graphics, and written stuff when you need more room to expand on an idea.

    Keep up the good work!

    Wooow. I can’t believe I came across this faggot ass website. Seriously, this is the biggest waste of space on the web since xanga. Why dont you nerds use your wit to go get laid, or better yet make websites people can actually use to better their lives, than jacking off to anime game stop boy motherfucker.
