He also began posting video game playthroughs, Top 10 lists, and vlogs and created the Pokemonday Show. In 2014, Nate branched out into making unique cover versions of existing video game tracks, music videos dedicated to anime, or English versions of anime opening songs, and eventually, he began writing and composing his own music.
Nate claims the popularity of his YouTube channel was because “He accidentally found something that had a huge audience that only a few people were catering to. I got the idea to write about a popular game, its lore and the deeper, emotional meaning I found to it and I guess it just resonated with others as much as it did with me”.
