Retrogames, lightguns and fishing rods...
From Rome, Italy, I broadcast in English. I am Goati_. I have a history of Japanese language studies and I have worked(hard) as a chef in the past! I mainly stream MegaDrive games (see "Sega Mega Marathon"), with a focus on researching their history, being informative and beating them without any help. Other things I like to stream include fishing games and lightgun games; also Italian games and Japanese exclusives in general. The pixel artwork featured on starting soon/BRB screens was made by [retro_christian](http://www.twitch.tv/retro_christian).

This is the channel's main focus: beating every game on my favorite system. That'd be over 1000 (includes games from all regions, unlicensed games, unreleased games, homebrews..) That happens on a Japanese Model 1 Megadrive; if I don't own the game, I will use a Mega SD or Everdrive cartridge. No hints or help outside from the game box/manual are ever allowed. In some cases, like EA manuals, the included hintbook will be ignored. In fact, no help of any kind is permitted: that means it is **illegal in all states**, for chat users, to provide hints, guesses or helpful comments. Every game is played on default or harder settings, I don't like it otherwise. Cheats, convenient passwords or pause-abusing are other things I don't like doing and thus will not happen. When I say every game is beaten, I mean it: not necessarily a 100% clear, but either I reach the credits screen or I beat all content. I like all kinds of videogames and normally don't make platform distinctions. **I'm aware it is a dumb project**, but I am also extremely passionate about the SEGA Mega Drive and it gives me extreme peaks of satisfaction to research, play and beat each title.

In these online worldwide marathon events you will see many interesting games across various old platforms that aren't normally recognized and talked about, and, mostly, casual-oriented gameplay, as the objective is to expose such kind of games and not necessarily to display skills. The marathon idea stems from the desire to see and show more retrogaming that isn't just the same series on the same systems. So, its purpose is to enlarge people's horizons a s to what old games are. This is wittily done by streaming games unrelated to Nintendo, to bring down a stereotype. There is NOT a focus on speedrunning, and there is not a focus on Sega games. Do note that it's nothing against Nintendo! Nintendo-focused streamers are also usually involved. Bottom line is: Twitch retro streams are mainly about Nintendo stuff, so let's show something different, shall we? Here are links to the schedules from previous editions. If you are interested in watching those, you can scroll through my Highlights. I will get them all on Youtube sometime. Hit me up on discord if you need anything.
