Learn more about BurkeBlack with some questions and answers below:

  • Everyone on the internet has a story of where their name came from, what's the story behind BurkeBlack?
    • The story behind the name BurkeBlack dates back to the release of Star Wars Galaxies. I wanted to be a bounty hunter, so my dad and I were mulling around name ideas when my Dad suddenly said, why not Burke Black, I thought it sounded very cool and very Bounty Hunting lol. So I took the name, then I met friends, who I have gamed with for years and my online persona was always Burke Black.
  • Many gamers started from childhood, what is the earliest gaming memory you have?
    • Pong LOL, my dad put a controller in my hands when I was a kid, tho I'm not sure what the first game was, I do remember the Atari was my first real experience, and I never lost the awe and look in my eyes when I first moved something on a tv screen.

  • Nitrado is partnered with hundreds of Content Creators, Modders and Developers, how are you finding your partnership with Nitrado?
    • I think Nitrado is perfect. It's easy to manage your servers, easy to change and adjust what games I wanna play and when. I'm very happy with them. Ease of use is very important to me.
  • Collaboration is a cornerstone of growing some channels if you could collaborate with anybody, who would it be and why?
    • I think I would love to game with Lady Gaga! You know how cool that would be to see her do some gaming?
  • Everyone has a favorite game or a game they'll always come back to, what's that game for you?
    • Total War, I love the series of games and highly recommend them, they allow you to live your fantasy as a general with a massive army =D

  • If you found a magic orb, that granted 3 wishes, what would they be?
    • Well, besides using them to help people? Lol purely selfish I would wish to lose weight! Live at Disney world, and have Total War and Paradox make a game together =D
  • New content creators are starting all the time, what's some advice you would give them that you wish you'd known when you started?
    • Don’t go into it cold turkey! Research, Read, watch videos! Get everything set up, test the quality, both audio and video, use some free artwork that’s out there to make your channel look good, you want Day 1 of your stream to be like its Year 10. You don’t need the best of the best to start, basic starter stuff is fine but make sure the quality is solid.

  • Inspiration is a key thing in any venture, what inspires you with content creation?
    • Theatrics! I love the “Show” aspect of live streaming and putting on a good show is most important, I draw a lot of inspiration from tv and youtube.
  • In today's competitive environment for content creators, switching to new games is needed to stay ahead of the curve, that means you often don't get to finish games, what was the last one you felt you'd completed?
    • Spiderman! It was too good to put down!
  • During a Zombie apocalypse which other content creators would you want with you?
    • Crream, hes an unstoppable beast that no zombie could take down. Im pretty sure Gassy and Cletus would die early and Bikeman would abandon me! But I think I can guilt trip Crream into protecting me =D
