Episode 48 – The Critic and the Dragon

Joining me for this month’s interview is author of actual books and YouTube critic Joseph Anderson.
Wanting to build up his online presence to attract a book agent, Joseph Anderson began creating YouTube videos to relieve himself of some “petty gripes” he had regarding the Dark Souls vs. Dark Souls 2 debate. He felt that a lot of what Dark Souls 2 was getting knocked on for was present in the original game. From there the channel grew to surpass his original occupation. We talk about the extreme amount of prep work — including multiple playthroughs — he engages in, the roulette-wheel-like luck of algorithms, and the surreality of success.
