  1. 1. Which direction should this blog go?

    • Fuck Google. No more channels. Just blog with same format month articles and occasional reviews is enough.
      3
    • Make a channel with only games that I like and BGM cut. With smaller number of videos it's going to be possible to backup stuff.

    • Make same channel with great video frequency, just with BGM cut.

Year 2009 was cool in my evaluation due to two 10/10 masterpieces. It starts to get weird, but the overall number of masterpieces for me is exactly 20 yet again this year. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2009 with songs.

My list of masterpieces in 2009:

  1. Abyss -Homicide Club-
  2. Amber Quartz
  3. Bengarachou Hakubutsushi
  4. Boku no Te no Naka no Rakuen
  5. Coμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku -
  6. Devils Devel Concept
  7. Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet.
  8. Heliotrope -Sore wa Shi ni Itaru Kami no Ai-
  9. Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star-
  10. Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo
  11. Like a Butler
  12. Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!
  13. Natsu no Ame
  14. Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai - Under the Innocent Sky.
  15. Shinjisougeki Carnival
  16. Soukou Akki Muramasa
  17. Steins;Gate
  18. Tapestry -you will meet yourself-
  19. Trample on "Schatten!!" ~Kagefumi no Uta~
  20. Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama
VN of the year was spoiled before during awesome October month - it's Soukou Akki Muramasa

But yet again google ruined my routine by wiping my second channel, so need to decide where this all is going one more time. First, brief recap.
 
First channel was shut down due to violation of community guidelines after publishing short 2-minute video of Nanairo Daydream ~Nanami Wonderland 2~  . It basically started with nsfw scene on the beach, so might slip something there, or might be totally different video since google likes to find something bad months after video's initial publishing. I never got answered what exactly violation was about and which video's fault it was. Any appeals got returned within 15 minutes, so pretty sure no human ever reviewed that. Google breaks its own rules of three strikes since I had 0/3 strikes. 
 
This second channel takedown is due to copyright. Natsu no Ame BGM rights owner issued some 50 complaints for each of game's videos (for each play fragment, apparently) at the same time, so it was instantly 500 violations or so. Usually it's just 1, only Garden had some 30 per video, but at that point I ignored and nothing happened for a year. If I ever record any gameplay, it will be with BGM shut down. But the question is why would we need playthrough without BGM. Once again Google breaks its own rules. There was no warning, no strike and even no way to appeal - the only option for me was to find email of publisher and ask him to take down complaints or counter sue rights owner in US court. SERIOUSLY? Monetized partners channels are given 7 days to deal with complaint or do smth with video, but channels under 1k subs are just instantly shutdown. And once again there are no real rules here, because content owners just show their ads on the claimed content videos 99% of the time as claim is applied. And on the 100th occasion someone decides to take down video instead. And with 500 takedown complaints sent at once it's an instant shift from innocent to grave recidivist. Basically, there aren't clear rules, and creator is always guilty by default with the only protection measure being monetized partnership. I don't want to gamble with a cheater anymore as channel that doesn't bring ads money and takes a lot of space can be shut down literally at any moment under any pretext at all, so there are three ways of blog development that I see:
 
  1. 1. No more channels. Just blog with same format month articles and occasional reviews is enough.
  2. 2. Make a channel with only games that I like and BGM cut. With smaller number of videos it's going to be possible to backup stuff.
  3. 3. Make same channel with great video frequency, just with BGM cut.

As far as i know, the playthroughs are meant to complement the reviews and not the opposite. If you have to choose between reviewing VNs based on a BGM-less experience and playing everything off-screen, it's best to play everything off-screen.

If you could've saved all your videos on it, it might've been worth paying ~50 USD for a 1 TB external hard drive, if that was financially possible.

Good luck with whatever decision you make. (I'm just a passerby who was slightly intrigued by your post's title.)
