Hello, this is HCBailly![edit | edit source]

HCBailly is a fairly well known Let's Player on Youtube, who has done almost nothing but JRPG games. His real name is Henri (Yes, an I, not a y) and he grew up in Chicago, IL, but currently lives in Oklahoma. He has a brother, who goes by the name JB, whom he has done a few co-op LPs with, with JB controlling a second character (like Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu III). Mainly known for his quirky lovable style, numerous catch-phrases, and methodical gameplay. He publishes content daily, for a "main LP". and every other day for a "side" LP, with average video length being around 10-30 minutes, depending on the overall length of the game. His accent reflects his Midwestern origins. He often ends his episodes with cliffhangers similar to those used for the 1960s Batman TV series. He currently has 96,000 subscribers. Unlike most LPers, HCBailly is not afraid to save. He has used emulators for the NES/SNES era games, but does try to get the original hardware.
