You probably know me as @Toadsanime, but you may simply know me through @Gameiversary, or Toad on Games.

I'm a video games journalist whose work can be found online at The Mirror, or in print at the Switch Player magazine. I sometimes appear on BBC Radio and other various outlets to talk, where I also talk about video games (SHOCK!) Many of you may simply know me for my coverage on Twitter, where I post breaking news and commentary to such a quantity that it could be considered spam.

I LOVE my work, and I love running my side projects like Gameiversary (which posts video game anniversaries every day) and the Toad on Games podcast (another gaming podcast with journalists, developers and industry experts as guests talking about specific gaming topics.)

However, I'm away for work 12 hours a day, and on top of reviewing games at home, I struggle to find the time for these efforts. I have practically dedicated my life to work these days, which is absolutely fine, but sometimes I wonder if it's worth it. There are also small costs involved with some of these projects.

If you like any of my work from anywhere, or just think I'm kinda a neat fella, anything helps! I am not struggling to pay bills, but games journalists are not rich folk, and I often lack enough money to pay for games I would like to review. I can't even get a Nintendo Switch yet, which I could really do with for work!

So, as well as covering small costs (Soundcloud account, new microphone) for projects and helping me purchase games for my work, this also just acts as incentive for me to continue with various projects. I have more in the pipeline too, of course!

Thank you so much for any help at all! Please don't feel any pressure to give, or to stick around indefinitely, and please don't give if it puts yourself in a more difficult position financially. <3

Your reward is me forever judging your poor financial decisions. This is an obscene amount of money to give someone on a monthly basis.

You will also get the previous pledge rewards if you do this, but you really shouldn't!
