Welcome to Sam's space!!!
My name is Sam Utari, and welcome to my pad...er...space...or...website?
Anyways, if you have come across this place then you have probably seen my Youtube Channel, my Twitter, or maybe even accicdentally found me via Facebook. Either way, glad to have you, nice to see you here :)
So lets kick this thing off with an F.A.Q. Shall we?
- Is Sam Utari your real name?
---The answer to that would be a very obvious 'NO'.
My name is NOT Sam, nor is my last name Utari. SamUtari is a persona created by taking my Samurott (who is nicknamed Utari) and smooshing it together to form something like a real name. It was either that or being called TySabre or GoldTy, or GoldsabreTy (after my Typhlosion) -_-
I think I will stick to SamUtari.
- Do you only play Pokemon?
On my YouTube Channel I hope to play a random assortment of different things. While Pokemon is something that I already have lined up as priority along with my Guild Wars playthroughs, I plan on making other videos as well such as covering Zelda, Kirby, and some Final Fantasy. So please be patient with me as I try and find the time to put new things out in-between playthroughs and readings.
If there is something you would like to see me play specifically, there will be a spot in the Forums for you to post those requests and etc.
- What all can I find on your Youtube Channel?
---My current plan is to have Pokemon Playthroughs, Guild Wars tutorials, some Yoshi's Story lets-play along with other things like Kirby Crystal Shards and even Paper Mario. Also I will be doing Pokepasta Readings, Gaming Rants, and if enough people begin to follow me, maybe some horror-reactions and some personal Q&A ;p
Right now (since the Pokemon Lets-plays are giving me issues) I have been working really hard on my Guild Wars playthroughs and Final Fantasy (starting from #1 and moving up). I had some other games that I was playing before (such as Link's Awakening and Pokemon Brown) but they have taken the back-burner for now.
- What inspired you to do this?
---Pssssht. I do what I want!
But seriously, I have always been a fan of putting myself out there online, on youtube, in video editing, and etc. I might not be very good at it, but it something that I really enjoy as a hobby. If I did have some inspirations then they would be Felicia Day, Cryaotic, PewDiePie, Tamashi, Markiplier, and some others.
- What are your goals when it comes to this project and/or hobby?
---I have none really.
I do not expect people to view my videos, nor do I expect to get famous like all the other big youtubers. I have crappy equipment, I talk to much, I'm not very funny, and I merely do this when I have nothing else of interest to be doing. So whatever comes of this project will be accepted with open arms, but I don't expect anything.
- What is your definition of a girl gamer?
---A girl that actually plays games.
Not a girl that pretends to play CoD for her boyfriend, and not a girl that merely poses with electronics trying to be sexy. I mean the girls that have the consoles, that buy the games, and who shall not shower until Hyrule is free! (<---I'll have the image later so you can get the reference).
- How long have you been playing games?
When have I 'NOT' been playing games? My brother is 11 years older than me and he had the classic Nintendo. The first game I remember touching was Mario for the NES as well as "Duck Hunt" and "Ghouls & Goblins" if that tells you anything.
- What consoles do you own and play on?
---I have a SNES, N64, PS2, Wii, XBox360, my PC, Gameboy SP, Nintendo DSi XL, and a super-cool 3DS (with Okami Decals).
Also I will be buying a WiiU to get the new Mario and Yoshi games coming out as well as looking into whether I should invest in the XboxONE or the PS4.
- What are some of your favorite games?
---Final Fantasy will always be my top favorite series along with Pokemon.
Tying for a close second would be my love of Guild Wars. But I'm really up for playing anything. My MOST favorite game in the whole-wide-world though is "Yoshi's Story". Oh, oh, and Tomba!
Don't judge me >:[
- Favorite game Genre?
---RPG all the way.
- What types of games will you NOT play?
---There is not a single Genre that I refuse to play...BUT I will admit that I really suck at shooters and get really distracted during puzzle games, so they never really work out for me very well. I also do not like sports games (that includes fishing and hunting). If I want to play a sport, I will go out and experience the real thing.
- Do you do your own photoshop and video editing?
My friend does all my photoshop for me. I have never touched Photoshop in my life and I don't even know how to use Gimp. It's all way too complicated and I would rather have someone else do it for me. As far as video editing goes, I do my own. I used to be really good at it on my old PC which had the old version of Windows Video Maker...but sadly, I just cannot figure out the new version. That, and, the WVM does not offer me screen capture.
Right now I am playing around with Camstasia Studios and AVS Video editor (at first I was using the free version so the annoying watermark was in the middle of the screen upon uploading to YouTube). I'm still looking to get a microphone soon as well as some other things so that my videos will be higher-quality than the junk I'm dishing out right now.
- What is a "Needle Monkey"?
---Needle Monkies are monsters from Final Fantasy III AND they happen to be what I call the
people who follow my videos (guess you could say my super tiny fanbase).
- When will you get good recording equipment?
---When I get the money I suppose.
- Do you plan on buying a DS capture card?
---YES!!! As soon as I can!
- What other things do you do besides upload to Youtube?
---Well, I do a lot of things. Besides play video-games, I run the "Pokepimps" group on Facebook, I am currently seeking Leaders for my RARE League (Pokemon related) on Facebook as well. I own a Yoshi group on Facebook known as "The Happy Tree".
I am also an Admin for a Pokepasta Wikia and a Facebook Page known as "Dex Holder Crystal" which focuses on PkMn Crystal Version appreciation and humor. When I'm not doing all that, I am spending time with my girlfriend, traveling around Germany...or I'm working (yes I do have a job) :(
---Yes, I has them :3
