Did you know that people use the Internet for more than just posting pictures of cute cats? It’s true! Some people even put up videos of cute cats. Like this one, which we’re pretty sure will be the actual test we use to root out replicants when Blade Runner’s dark vision of the future becomes reality.

If you’re not a cat person, however, other people are posting original video content about games, and we have three of them in the latest episode of the Bring Your Own Topic podcast. Our host, GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan “Shoe” Hsu, sits down with Tara Long (The Destructoid Show, Revision 3), Carlos Rodela (PCWorld, MacWorld, TechHive), and IGN’s Greg Miller to talk about the day-to-day triumphs and tragedies of Internet-based moving-picture creation.

(Note: The Kickstarter for Carlos’ “Everybody Game” web series isn’t up yet, but he’ll post updates on his website.)
