We have excellent beer and an awesome vintage arcade here in Portland.  Anyone who pledges gets an invitation to have some drinks whilst playing the Ninja Turtles arcade game.  And I guess if you're not of drinking age, there's this other cool arcade that we could also go to, but it smells like feet. It's still fun, I'm just being honest here.  Let me know if you're ever in town!

About Effing Controller

Howdy folks! My name is Effing Controller, and I create let's play videos. That means that I play video games with a microphone stuck in my face. The ensuing utterances and gameplay are recorded for your delight and bewilderment.  I tend to play a lot of RPGs and simulator games, with particular emphasis on the Silent Hunter series.  Here's an example:

This hobby is incredibly rewarding for me as it is, so I want to talk briefly about why I'm doing this.

I started my YouTube channel to enhance my enjoyment of games. To my surprise, people enjoyed my enjoyment, a fact which I also enjoyed!  Imagine enjoyment exploding out of every orifice!

I'd like to spend more time creating something that you and I both enjoy.  I can do this with your help.  Even a small donation helps me get better editing software or improve my audio setup.  If things go really out of control, I might be able to make more videos on a more consistent basis.

Monetizing through YouTube isn't really an option. Advertisements suck. They're annoying for the viewer, and for let's players on YouTube, they're a dicey proposition for a lot of reasons that I won't go into here. Patreon takes a lot of the headaches away like a delicious bottle of aspirin-flavored vodka.

If you do decide to support me, you can donate as little or as much as you want via credit card or PayPal (check out Patreon's FAQ at the very bottom of the page for more info).  In fact, you don't have to donate at all to keep watching my videos! My first and foremost reason for making let's plays is that it's fun as heck.

Regardless of whether or not you want to donate, THANK YOU for taking the time to read this, and I hope that we keep having a great time!

Like many others, you might find yourself asking "how did Effing get so great?" Well, I can't tell you all of my secrets, but maybe I can help you sink boats in a video game. Topics would include torpedo solutions, hunting techniques, evasion & survival, gunnery, modding, and other topics.
