I started streaming around the end of 2011 with a crappy happague-usb2 capture card, at that time twitch was still called justin.tv and we hadnt yet seen video game streaming go mainstream yet. Its been 5 years and I'm still having fun playing fighting games and speed running for anyone willing to chill out in chat and watch my streams
