Wednesday 05 January 2011
Christmas and New Year specials aplenty in the most viewed gaming videos for the week ending January 5: Welcome to Minecraft's episodic exploration includes a surprise Christmas cloak, there's a five-person
Defense of the Ancients commentary, and Gameology's French-language series joins the festive fun.
The Minecraft adventure takes a DIY rollercoaster turn into a creepy cavern, hurtling to top spot in YouTube's chart. It's followed by Black Ops Mythbusters, an eight-question exploration of rumored Call of Duty quirks, and a top-level StarCraft 2 match.
Haito's Defense of the Ancients tutorials and commentaries remain popular on China's Youku site, with special guest commentators in his Christmas & New Year special, and a seasonal Jacky machinima rounding out the top three.
There's no doubt as to the level of Monster Hunter fever gripping Japanese gamers as Nicovideo's top three consists purely of gameplay footage from December's release of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd for PSP - tips, cheats, and conquests.
On France's Dailymotion, Gameology check out futuristic action game Vanquish, come up with their own augmented clothing, and get into the festive spirit with a seasonal selection. FOCUS come up with their top five new releases from the Paris Games Week including Hot Pursuit, Black Ops, and the movie-centric YooStar 2.
