From when he was a small kid, Roger loved playing videos games and liked consoles more than PC. He played such games as Fire Emblem on GBA when he was in middle school, and has loved it ever since. His parents didn’t disturb him from his favorite hobby, which actually helped Roger to pursue his dream of becoming a professional YouTuber.
Roger attended Homewood-Flossmoor High School in Chicago, and matriculated in 2008. Later he entered an (unnamed) college, and graduated with BA in Theatre and English.
The start of the game journalism career
Roger started his career as a games reviewer in 2009. When he was a freshman in college, he started writing for a small local gaming website – GamingVice – mainly focusing on the FGC and Pokemon. He wrote under the nickname “You Already Know”, highlighting such games as Zelda, Assassin’s Creed, Street Fighter 4 and many others. He also wrote articles on various topics such as “Are Hardcore Gamers Lazy?”, “Why The Wii Crowd Won’t Purchase A PS3” and “The End of Mainstream Game Journalism”.
Success on YouTube
A year later Roger started his YouTube channel, on 2 June 2010; he started posting his videos on various anime series, but later removed his first uploads. The oldest video on his channel now is entitled “Let It Go (from ‘FROZEN’) – Roger DiLuigi feat. Danny Lopatka”; it’s a music video in which Roger sings the song of the main character of the Frozen cartoon, Elsa, called “Let It Go”, and his mate Danny Lopatka plays the guitar. The background of the video is a Christmas tree and Christmas lights around the room the guys are sitting in. Later Roger uploaded more music videos, among them was a rap song on the game called the Legend of Zelda and a cover on Ed Sheeran’s song called “I See Fire” which was performed by Roger, and the video for it was a compilation of screenshots from the anime series entitled “One Piece”. Such videos often gained around 100,000 views.
A couple of months later Roger started uploading his “My Reaction To…” videos in which he filmed his reaction to various plot twists in anime series he liked, some new games coming out, etc. His subscribers enjoyed the videos, and their numbers increased rapidly – by July 2019 Roger’s YouTube channel attracted over 200,000 subscribers. His most popular video on his YouTube channel is entitled “LIVE REACTION TO SMASH BROS ULTIMATE! EVERYONE IS BACK! RIDLEY & ECHO FIGHTERS | RogersBase E3 2018” was posted only a year ago, and has amassed over 430,000 views. His “Theory Discussion” videos also gain over 300,000 views per video. Roger has successfully collaborated with such YouTube personalities as Cobanermani456, EWNetwork, Giancarloparimango11 and many others.
Roger is well known for working as a voice actor for Nintendo, and is also a product demonstrator and Brand Ambassador for Nintendo in America. Roger released his EP of popular song covers on iTunes on 31 March 2015. On his Twitter account, he reviews new anime series episodes, and popular manga chapters called “One Piece” on a weekly basis. He also reviews new episodes of such shows as My Hero Academia, Attack On Titan, One Punch Man, etc. Roger has appeared in several TV series too, such as “Drunk Disney” (2016), “Orbyt Play” (2016) and “Bad Box Art” (2016-2017).
As Roger work for Nintendo, he often promised to share some hot news on various games coming out for Nintendo Switch, but his promises often turned out to be fake ones. His fans blamed him for hyping over new Nintendo products and giving improper information, so each time Roger is going to share some exclusive news, his fans don’t hurry to believe him.
