Chill Variety Streamer with Smooth Commentary. Let's play and talk about games - and not sweat the small stuff. Please visit my YouTube channel for VODs & other videos.
See [my website](https://jerp.tv) for much more info & links. I'm a long-time streamer (since 2008) known for playing a variety of games, having a chill and respectful atmosphere, and a methodical & insightful approach to the games I play. My streams feature lots of discussion on game systems and game dev overall. I've been playing games of all sorts for well over 30 years, starting with the Commodore 64 and Vic-20. Combined with over 10 years of experience in the game industry, I tend to have insights that other streamers might not have & I tend to not be so harshly critical of games.

Street Fighter 6 Quick Reference
I wrote a [web app](https://jerp.tv/sf6) that can be used to show a character's full command list on a single screen (supports both desktop & mobile). It's meant to be similar to move list bezels on arcade cabinets, or reference cards that came with some versions of SFIV, SFV and other games.
Why the Capybara mascot?
I wanted a theme to best represent the spirit of the channel - a chill place to hang out where everyone can get along. While all content creators have their ups and downs, the Capybara ideal is the pillar I always return to in order to stay grounded.
What Games Do I Play?
What games do I play? Primarily retro action games - rogue-lites, shmups, metroidvanias, etc. Lots of indies in particular. I had a long stint with the Dark Souls games, too! I've played over 200 games on steam in the past 10 years. [Here's a list!](https://jerp.tv/games)
[Check out this page for a list of playthroughs I've archived on YouTube](https://jerp.tv/vod_archives.html). Not everything's been saved in the past so many years - I'm trying to be much more diligent about preserving vods nowadays.

My Original Claim to Fame
I was big into the Dark Souls PvP community back in the day, creating one of the most notorious invasion builds of all time for the first game, and then being the most impressive spellcaster invader in DS2. I owe about 11k Twitch follows to that. I think what put me on the radar was my methodical approach - rather than being as fast, mechanically skilled, or hype as other streamers, I'm good at picking apart game systems and achieving success through how well I can apply that understanding to the games I play.
