Oh hello there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm afraid I'm all out of tea, but would you be interested in a cup of random awesomeness instead?
You see, I’m a huge fan of all things retro gaming, from the Atari 2600 to the PlayStation 2 (and yes, I consider the PS2 retro). As such, I write a whole host of articles about it, ranging from reviews of games to long-form analysis of the gaming industry's history. I also create a Weekly Retro gaming series on YouTube, where I play 30 minutes of classic games, whilst discussing their style, gameplay and more! Here's an example:
But anyway, I haven't really answered the question, have I? This, right here, in my Patreon page; a place where you can support & validate the content I create. You can also help that content improve and grow too!
Yep, that’s the next big part of this, isn’t it? So, in short, it helps me run my blog and generate the content that you want to see. In other words, it’ll help cover the expense of running the website as well as purchasing the various items I will be reviewing. But that's all pretty boring, really, isn't it? Where's the good stuff?
Well, you'll get to take control over my Weekly Retro series, choosing what games I feature each week. On top of that, you can also get early access to my videos (24 hours before everyone else), the chance to take control over my monthly History of Gaming articles, and even the ability to get some cool merchandise as well!
Doesn't that just sound so awesome?
You know, I might actually call them that from now on. Anyway... With your help I can expand and improve my videos on YouTube. This will be done by getting better equipment (like capture cards), as well as bigger and more exciting games! Your support will mean I can do the following;
- Expand my videos to include PS2, GameCube, PS3 and various other controls that are hard to emulate.
- Increase the number of games I am able to feature.
- Add guests to some of my videos.
- Improve the sound quality of the videos, so they are easier for you to watch.
Pretty cool, right?
With your support, I'll be able to launch and run a podcast covering retro gaming, anime and all sorts of other geeky stuff. I'll also be able to include a variety of guests on that podcast, making it fun and exciting to listen to!
So, does that help you? I hope so… If not, why not check out my blog first and see what you think? Just visit 16-Bit Dad today!
Again, with the absolutely awesome help you guys can give, I can expand 16-Bit Dad and give you the content that you deserve! So come and #JoinTheParty today!
