I fell in love with video games in my young age.
My parents opposed my passion towards video games.
I played Dynasty Warriors, a fighting game, it was okay for me.
I failed schools, possibly all the other things in my life. It was all broken.
But, I loved video games so much and my strict family blocked me.
I went to my friend’s house and they introduced me Dynasty Warriors 2.
I fell in love with the music first, then slowly got into the gameplay and system.
I bought Dynasty Warriors 3, with Chinese dub.
I played as Xiao Qiao.
I loved it, very very much.
Dynasty Warriors 4 released.
I wanted to play it but I got controlled by my family.
Somehow, my mum brought me a PC for the sake of the school’s needs.
I used my PC to do my school projects, at the same time, drooling over the game screenshots on Gamespot.
I downloaded a lot of screenshots with my 56K modem, I printed them and brought them to sleep with me.
I skipped all my school assessment. I used all my time to learn to create websites.
I created a lot of fan sites for video games.
Then, I failed schools.
One last chance, I got into college, but this time, I studied Computer Science.
I disappeared from the online world to earn my scholarships.
I came online again because I have achieved my goal.
I found there wasn’t many Warriors’ fan sites (apart from kongming.net, yueying.net).
I used my knowledge to create Koei Warriors.
I started it with Dynasty Warriors 5 content as the base, which is probably why you see a lot of media and assets there..
My friend helped me to start and manage the forum.
My passion was very strong, KW became a media heavy site, with not just info, but a lot of things.
I joined KW community and started to build it from scratch.
I got the offer from my diploma, I moved to UK to continue my degree.
My site got explored by Koei.
I met up with the team.
They sent me many goodies, I was very happy.
I used those goodies to run the competitions for my site.
I went to the expo and involved in the events and cosplay.
I graduated, I started to work in web programming company.
At the same time, I helped Koei to design game websites in overseas.
I designed Dynasty Warriors 6 official site for the UK.
I spent more than 100 hours to finish it after my daily work in the other company.
Then, I was made redundant from the web programming job I was doing.
I was jobless.
Koei hired me.
I resigned from Koei Warriors.
I came in, Tecmo Koei merged.
I was happy because I was also a Tecmo fan, I used to run fansites for Dead or Alive and Fatal Frame.
First time in gaming industry. I was very scared.
But I wasn’t afraid to learn and to correct mistakes.
We released Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce.
We went to many expos for many promotions. I was happy.
My pack shot design for Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires got acknowledged and used officially. I was fucking happy.
I worked hard, very hard.
I became ill and I was alone, all the time.
I realized it’s time for me to take a good care on myself.
I started to involve in health and fitness.
Fitness bullshit ends here.
Dynasty Warriors 7 announced.
I went to Japan.
I visited the headquarter.
I met the producer.
We did some videos.
I have been given a good team and community to handle. It is fortunate.
Dynasty Warriors 8 announced in Japan.
I wanted it to come to overseas, in both PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
Also, the English voice (in most affordable level) and Japanese voice (as a DLC).
It is because it would end up 2 discs for Xbox 360 version, so to make it fair, DLC for both versions.
I pushed it hard, very hard.
Okay, it is done.
Dynasty Warriors 8 is coming this Friday, 19th July 2013 across Europe.
Also, I got promoted!
