Rocco Botte (born 1984), is the creative genius behind Mega64. He was born in San Diego, California. San Diego native, student, and creator of Mega64, Rocco lives a life of intrigue and suspense. You may spot him around any corner, at an Aquabats concert, performing in community theater, or "getting his game on" at a local videogame shop. Not much else is known about him. In Mega64, he portrays protagonist Rocko Boaty (which is a play on his real life name), and the main villain, Dr. Poque. Ever since Mega64, though, he has been getting noticed more, and it even made a few skits like that of "Dead Rising 2" and others a bit tougher to film for. Rocco doesn't dislike the attention, but he does want to film that skit everyone has been waiting for (conjecture, citation needed)...
Rocco was the brain child of Richard Botte. Much to Rocco's dismay, Richard has permeated every aspect of Mega64 culture. It is unknown if this disturbs Rocco.
Rocco is somewhat of a gaming legend in the common vernacular. He keeps his thoughts grounded in reality, aside for the times when he's writing skits. In these instances, he lets his imagination run wild. Rocco has a highly advanced GPS wristwatch that allows him access to the Mega64 servers any hour of the day.
Personal Channel Edit
Rocco has a personal channel called "roccobotte" on YouTube. He often posts videos on his life in and outside Mega64. The videos Rocco posts give an insight to life in the Mega64 offices and other events, with them often ending with a transition that has Rocco point the camera very close at an object nearby. The personal channel also hosts the very controversial TOP 10 REASONS WHY THE BEATLES SUCK video, which was responded to multiple times by Richard Botte, his father.
He also created multiple short sketches on his channel. These include occasional mini-series like Street Meals, with the series the Unboxing Ring being the most notable. This series has Rocco play a character named Tyler "Trick Man." Airing around 2010-2013, the Unboxing Ring had Tyler "Trick Man" unbox the new DVDs that were being available in those years.
