Welcome to my website! My name is Andrew, and I’m a professional YouTube creator and Twitch broadcaster since 2009. To date, my YouTube channel has reached over 30 million views and 100,000+ subscribers, which is something I'm incredibly proud of.

As a Twitch partner for over 5 years, I have been a featured broadcaster at TwitchCon and showcased on the Twitch front page several times while doing sponsored streams for Electronic Arts with The Sims franchise. On Twitch, I have reached over 41,000 followers and 1,200 active paid subscribers.

I'm also very active on Twitter with over 17,000 followers and an average of 650,000 tweet impressions every month. I also keep in touch with my community on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and Discord. Feel free to contact me whenever and wherever you want!

Each year, Electronic Arts hosts an event called Sims Camp. It's an event where game developers invite some of their most influential creators and key opinion leaders to record exclusive gameplay footage of upcoming games. I've had the pleasure of attending these events five times, and you can see the sponsored content I made for The Sims here.

I have also done sponsored content for other companies, including Nintendo, Koei Tecmo, and Frontier Developments. In addition to that, I'm a partner with Discord and StreamLabs. I've been described as brand-safe and am always respectful and professional with my content. I'm very familiar with non-disclosure agreements, and I take them very seriously. Every single community manager I've worked with has been a wonderful partner in my journey so far. If you would like to collaborate, please feel free to contact me!

In 2016, I was so honored to be invited to St. Jude's Play Live Summit event where I helped raise money for their charity organization to help find a cure for cancer. Play Live is a massive success, and as of 2018, we have raised over $6,500,000 for the kids of St. Jude.

Simply put, I love broadcasting and making videos. There's a reason I've stuck with it for nearly a decade. The community I've grown with has been one of the best things to happen in my life. I've befriended so many people who watch my content, and they feel like friends for life. In fact, there are even two couples that initially met in my stream that are now married! It's such an amazing thing to witness friendships blossom within my community.

If you're someone that has watched my videos or streams, I truly appreciate it. It's 100% thanks to your support by watching and subscribing that allows me to continue doing my dream job.

Not So Berry


Last year on Twitch I began the Not So Berry challenge! This legacy challenge was created by LilSimsie and Alwaysimming. You can find all the rules about the challenge here.


It took a while but I have taken the 120+ hours of footage from my broadcasts on Twitch and I edited them down to one hour segments to upload daily at 1:00 PM PST!

This series has been a blast to play with and I love how involved everyone in my community has been. I highly recommend giving the Not So Berry challenge a shot if you're looking for something to push you out of your boundaries in The Sims 4.

You can find the rest of the videos of my Not So Berry series on YouTube and Twitch.

The Sims Mobile


Recently on my YouTube channel I've been playing through The Sims Mobile which is now available for iOS and Android devices. I've always been very apprehensive about getting into mobile games, because more often than not they are designed with some rather expensive paywalls.

So far I've played the game for about three weeks and I've been legitimately enjoying the game so far. However I do feel some of the micro-transactions are way overpriced and there are a few mechanics in the game that I really hope they change and I go into detail about this in my YouTube series.



The two images above are screenshots of my current household. From my own pocket I've invested $9.00 USD into micro-transactions. If you end up spending any money on this game I highly recommend waiting until a daily deal pops up, the bundle for 500 SimCash and 50 cupcakes I found to be fairly priced.

I would 100% avoid buying any of the item sets in the featured section of the shop, they are simply not worth it at all. Plus you unlock a majority of the sets later on in the game if you keep playing. You're much better off spending your SimCash to unlock all 4 playable Sims that way you can make money in the game much faster.

You can see the first part of my play-through of The Sims Mobile here:



If you play The Sims Mobile you can send me a friend request and see the status of my current household! Keep in mind though I'm already at the 50 friend limit. However after you send me a invite you should see my username at the very bottom of your friends list and you can still view my house and profile there within the game's client. My friend code is: EMGLERA.

Hope you enjoy the series and have a great day / night!

Cats & Dogs


Hello everyone! Electronic Arts provided me with a wonderful opportunity to travel to their headquarters in California to play The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs in advance. The content in this blog post is sponsored by EA.

In case you haven't already seen my YouTube video about Create-A-Pet I highly recommend checking it out as I dive into all the different aspects about customizing animals in it.


I also wanted to share some screenshots that I forgot to put in my video!










I had such a blast creating a ton of pets in The Sims 4 and I can't wait for Cats & Dogs to come out. The game will be released November 10th, 2017 so not too far off at all.

At www.Twitch.tv/AndrewArcade on November 10th I will be doing a 15-hour livestream to celebrate the release of Cats & Dogs!

Thanks for checking out this blog post and I hope you're all having a great week.
