In an episode of Twitter and Twitch collective The Mob’s ‘Mobcast’, 100 Thieves CEO Nadeshot revealed the largest sum of money he’s ever had deposited into his bank account – and it really proves that you can make serious money from gaming.

Money is often the main discussion when it comes to gaming and esports – how much money is in the industry and how much individuals can make from them a serious precursor to any conversation around the industry.

Nadeshot started out as a professional Call of Duty player, but quickly became far more successful through his Twitch and YouTube channels and, now, as the CEO of one of esports’ biggest organizations.

As a man motivated by money, Nadeshot often asks guests of his ‘Selfmade’ podcast the biggest check they’ve ever had – but he probably didn’t expect the question to be turned on him when he appeared on the Mobcast.

The quartet asked him about the biggest bank deposit he had ever made or check cashed, and the 9-time MLG champion seemed a little hesitant at first, but eventually decided to answer.

“$3 million,” he said, nonchalantly, his hosts clearly in shock at the prospect of so much money. Although he couldn’t say who he got the money from, he did confirm that “that was a good day,” as if making that much money couldn’t be.

Although there has been little doubt as to Nadeshot’s status as a millionaire, the idea of someone who started out as a professional Call of Duty player simply getting $3m deposited into their bank account is pretty wild.

This just proves how much money is in the industry if you work hard enough and reach high enough – especially with the growth esports is seeing week in, week out, the fact of the matter is that some people will be making this amount and more from their work in esports and gaming.

Throughout the rest of the podcast, Nadeshot explained why he believes franchising is a big mistake for Call of Duty as well as discussing the NBA’s Devin Booker joining 100 Thieves and how he met his current girlfriend at the LCS Studios.

Over the years, we can only imagine that $3m figure will only grow as both esports and 100 Thieves do, and Nadeshot could very well become the richest man in esports.

The Pokemon community was stunned after a Twitch streamer was able to imitate Pikachu’s voice to perfection. The personality sounds so much like the Nintendo mascot that she could easily be mistaken for the real thing.

For nearly three decades, Pokemon’s mascot Pikachu has had the same voice. First created by Japanese actress Ikue Ōtani in 1997, children and adults around the world instantly recognize the iconic sounds of the adorable ‘mon.

Fans of the Nintendo RPG were blown away when a Twitch streamer shared her mind-blowing impression of the character during a live broadcast on December 4. The online personality could easily be mistaken for the electric mouse.

Twitch streamer has the perfect Pikachu impression

Variety streamer ‘Saiiren‘ had just kicked off her December broadcast when she admitted to her audience that she had been going through older clips. The personality explained that she was surprised at how much higher-pitched she used to sound.

A viewer then asked if her she was able to mimic Pikachu’s voice. “Can you do the Pikachu voice?” she read aloud before imitating voice lines the beloved character is known for.

Her chat instantly lost it, floored by how accurate she sounded.  Comments like “wow that was a good Pikachu” flooded her chat. Saiiren then confessed, “I liked being a voice actress. It was one of things I liked doing back then when I was younger.”

A clip of her accurate impression made its way on Reddit where readers were stunned by how much she sounded like the iconic Japanese character. “Holy s**t this is actually super accurate,” one user wrote. Another echoed a similar sentiment: “I wasn’t expecting it to be this close. Holy s**t.”

Viewers were impressed.

Shockingly, the streamer went on to reveal that she isn’t actually a voice actor, although she clarified that she wants to be. With how mind-blowing her Pikachu impression is, surely her future in the entertainment industry is looking bright.

Despite releasing in 1996, the Pokemon franchise is now more popular than it’s ever been. The series will officially celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, which will no doubt heavily feature the game’s beloved yellow mascot.
