Hey guys, Joe here! I joined YouTube in September 2015 and thanks to you guys have nearly 5000 subscribers at the time of writing! I create daily gaming content on games such as Football Manager, Tennis World Tour and Cricket Captain! I also run a weekly LIVE podcast with my good friend Toby (TIJ) where we talk about all things from games to sport to film and TV! I also run a regular series called The Retro Show where we delve into the archives of gaming and relive our nostalgic moments of games from the PS1 and PS2 era!

I also have educational videos on my other channel (CaptainGoodspeed Maths) for those who are studying Mathematics courses such as OCR FSMQ and A-Level Further Maths!

I've had Patreon for a while but now I've re-branded and updated it and it gives you an opportunity to help the channel out and help grow OUR channel even more!

Before I continue I would just like to say please do not donate if you cannot afford it, and don't feel like you have to - I will be continuing to make daily YouTube content even if I don't make any money from this! It goes without saying that there are much more important things in life than my channel so if you are in any way short of money, then use the money you have to look after yourself and your family first.

For those of you that don't know, I am a full-time Mathematics student at Newcastle University, so as you can imagine, money is quite tight with having to pay bills at home and traveling to uni every day, so, therefore, I can't spend as much as I would like to on improving the channel. I'm not going to lie, I'm certainly not struggling financially, but I don't have enough spare cash to invest in some of the things I would like to!

I've been absolutely blown away by the support you guys have given me over the last two years and I want to reward you by making the best content that I can!

Any money donated will go towards improving the content on the channel and becoming a patron will give you special "privileges" in helping decide the direction the YouTube channel goes in!

Money Donated so far has contributed to me buying:
  • A Green Screen so that you don't have to see my room in the background to the videos and improve the professionalism of the videos. (Elgato Green Screen - £129.99 on GAME).
  • A new desk lamp to improve the lighting of the Green Screen (£9.99 on Amazon).
  • A Pop Filter to improve the quality of the audio (£6.99 on Amazon).
  • A 2nd hand Surface Pro to help me with University work and allow me to play matches in between episodes on Football Manager when I'm out and about and have a few minutes! (£250 on eBay) P.S. Most of the money for this was my own money!

Any money that is donated will go towards the following improvements to the channel:
  • A new microphone to fine tune the quality of my voice in videos and hopefully eradicate the occasional buzz or pop in the audio, again improving the professionalism of the videos. (Blue Yeti - £94.99 on Amazon)
  • A new capture card capable of recording in 4K and 60fps to improve the quality of the resolution of my console gameplay and perhaps the PC gameplay (If that's possible). (Elgato 4K Pro - £359.99 on Amazon)
  • A stream deck so that I am able to fine-tune the quality of my weekly Live Streams and hopefully improve interaction. (Elgato Stream Deck - £121.17 on Amazon)
  • Various improvements to my setup, such as monitors and improvements to my gaming PC.
(All prices correct as of 2nd December 2017)
I'm not as naive to think that all of these things will pay for themselves in a short space of time, but I'm hopeful of a slow and gradual improvement to the channel in the coming years and anything that is donated through Patreon (or through Live Streams) will go towards these. To see a full (and up-to-date) list of things I would like to buy, see my Amazon Wishlist:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/32EGLCAVKQ...

Even if I don't make a penny from Patreon, I will continue to do what I do because I absolutely love it and it's incredibly humbling to know there are people out there who enjoy what I do! And please don't worry, there will never be ANY content behind a pay wall!

Thank you so much for the support - thanks for reading!
