Hey guys, Nick Thien here!

Why I want to make videos based on video game content?
Ever since I was a teenager, what I always did when I was playing a new game was that I would hook up my PlayStation console to a VCR and record the cutscenes and gameplay while I was playing. After recording it a full tape worth of video, I would bring them over to a friend's house and show it to them.

I missed the boat during the Youtube boom of Let's Players and stuff like that because I had to focus on my studies and I moved to Malaysia and recording equipment became prohibitively expensive due to being on a student budget.

That doesn't mean I haven't been sitting on my hands and haven't been trying to keep up with the latest trends in recording and video editing, and especially with the current generation of consoles having built in video recording and sharing functions it's so much easier today to stream and upload videos than what I did back in the day.

Why do I need backing?
However, I'm still not where I wish to be in terms of my recording equipment and trying to cover the latest games in a country with a dwindling economy is not easy. Having a day job doesn't even come close to covering the cost of wanting to do something like this. So I've got to shallow a little bit of that Asian pride and admit that if I want to do more than just doing Let's Plays and go into more produced content I am going to need some help.
