Welcome To Bombchu!

Bombchu is a concept that began as an ad-free gaming news website that evolved into a branding that focuses on delivering videos and other forms of gaming content created by game and video creation enthusiasts. Too often nowadays, we see very large companies like CNN or Fox News attempting to monopolize gaming content by producing pieces that are so out of touch with what gamers care about that it's almost unreal. Our goal is to create a haven for gamers where they can get the news, reviews, and unique content they deserve without the threat of having to bear witness to an obviously "paid off" review or news story. Those are super lame and we can't stand 'em!

So far, our channel has seen pretty decent success following these guidelines and we have our subscribers, friends, and family who believe in what we're trying to accomplish to thank for that! We hope to include patrons to that list of people we trust and rely on as we continue to grow Bombchu and evolve within this ever-changing industry!

So What Content Are Patrons Funding?

Currently, we are specializing in videos but expect to create even more outlets for our content in the future. Our current offerings are: 

Bombchu Gaming News
This isn't just any gaming news show, this is our three times a week news show covering the gaming news we find particularly interesting. There are lots of stories out there that can easily attract a few hundred views at a time ( I mean, Overwatch videos release by the thousands daily), but we believe that showing you guys what we like instead is a far better way of doing things and makes our news segments easier to relay.

Every Monday, Wednesday, And Friday, we break down the news in a way that is concise, informative, and as one subscriber put it: " the exact kind of gaming journalism designed by gamers for gamers". Not just that, but we REFUSE to try and bait you in with a title or thumbnail that has nothing to do with the news we'll be covering. If we say something in the title, dollars to doughnuts, we'll have a segment covering it! Now if only national news could be as great...

Bombchu Reviews
Every media outlet reviews games in a variety of different ways but our take on them is very different. For each game, we focus on what was good, what was bad, and then give our recommendation as a fellow gamer. This may anger some as they don't have a point score to go by but by the end of the video, we're not trying to sell you a game or make you hate it, we want to be as informative as possible while sharing our experiences with the title and then let you, the player, decide if our recommendation matches your own style. We want to empower, not overpower.

As mentioned, we tackle each review differently which has given rise to one of our more popular shows, the Humble Monthly Review. For the past year, we've ranked as some of the top YouTube searches for our reviews and that's all because our resident reviewer Austin takes time to sit down every Friday it releases, play about an hour or more of each game, form his impressions of them and then release a well-polished video before the weekend ends. These videos garner lots of attention due to our strong editing and we think that patrons will love it for that same reason! This is just the tip of the iceberg as each Bombchu review will be well researched, played by someone who is actually interested in video games, and then edited to remove any extra fluff so the viewer gets the best experience possible. 

New and more original content
Finally, your funding will be going towards increasing how much we can do for the channel. Currently, all three main content editors work a full-time job and because of this, any free time we get becomes a decision of "do I make a video... or..." and often the or wins. As we gain patrons (and even before this) we are looking to create and add new shows to add even more originality to our programming lineup! Here's a taste of what we have in the works!

  • Super Sunday Season 3 - This is our retro let's play starring Austin and Andron where they will be continuing their journey to play every single SNES game ever released in North America.
  • My 2 Cents - Andron has opinions about the gaming industry and some are probably pretty unpopular. Starting off as a bi-monthly series, Andron will discuss a hot topic in the Gaming Industry and provide a well researched, mostly fact based, persuasive argument about why his opinion may just be right. This series is meant to promote conversation and we're sure there will be plenty in the comments after you hear what he has to say.

Real Talk

So we've got the business pitch out of the way and now it's time to actually figure out why we're even on Patreon. To put it simply, YouTube just isn't what it used to be and in the long run, we don't want to have to rely on AD revenue to continue making great content. 

We watch a lot of shows on YouTube and while endorsements and AD revenue is plentiful for creators who have reached a couple million subscribers, channels like ours that are still growing are starving for both attention and a slice of that pie. We have already laid down a fine framework of great content but now, we realize a need to grow further so we can work less at boring day jobs and produce more content for you!

In a perfect world, we hope this Patreon campaign will earn enough for us to disable ads, refuse endorsement deals, and instead only focus on making more and more content. In fact, that would be GREAT!

Until then, however, we'll have to take what we can get while retaining our artistic and journalistic credibility which, believe me, is a real chore. As we begin to grow into a more well-rounded company and see funding come in steadily, we will slowly begin stopping the practices above and instead make our YouTube videos perfect for watching great content instead of selling AD space.
