Steven Serge (born August 21, 1990) known as STAR_, Ster, or Niichts is an American gameplay commentator who resides in Boston, Massachusetts, and irregularly uploads gameplay commentaries for Team Fortress 2. He first started out as a somewhat dull, calm person providing tips and strategies during TF2 matches, but later developed a great sense of humor and a somewhat manic and enthusiastic personality.
He has garnered multiple subscribers, currently having over 750,000. A large portion of his content is TF2 related, however he has mostly left YouTube and TF2 in favor of his Twitch streaming career focusing mainly on Overwatch.
STAR_ is well known within the TF2 community, having played competitively before. He formerly played for TheSyndicate (-ts-) as a substitute Heavy, and currently plays on MURDERFORE 9000, again, as a substitute Heavy, alongside other famous TF2 YouTubers, such as stabbystabby, Ma3la, sigafoo, and b4nny.
He is also well known in the Overwatch community as he played for the USA in the first Overwatch World Cup. After this, ster tried his hand at casting the 2016 ESL Atlantic Showdown at gamescom. Finally for the 2nd world cup in 2017 ster was part of the USA national committee that decided which players to put on the roster.
STAR_ has a series called Story Time, where he talks about his life, or serious topics that are not related to Team Fortress 2 while having something being drawn at the background. Currently, there are only 5 videos to his Story Time series.
In his just talking video, he tells his viewers that he doesn't draw as much as he once did, not because he got bored, but because he had transferred his passion for drawing to making and editing videos. He also reassured his viewers that Story Time is always in his mind, and maybe in the future he might be able to find the time to produce more. But at the moment, he has been becoming more uncomfortable with sharing personal stories in the internet, especially since his fan-base is ever growing.
Basically is a video series where he plays various other games (fluctuating between actual reviews and complete randomness) and GTA IV cheats galore, which were originally posted on 404star, his alternate account, but are now continued on his main channel. STAR_ has said multiple times that videos in this series take by far the longest time to record and edit, with the average length of creation lasting from a few days to 2 or so weeks.
404STAR or ster 2, is STAR_'s alternate YouTube account. There are many different games featured, of which vary from a more unedited, raw, live commentary style to edited stream highlights.
His uploads on this channel has become less frequent than before, because he prefers to livestream on his twitch.tv. It has been on a hiatus for some time now. He had stated that most videos on this channel weren't as intricately edited as those on his main channel, and were "lazy" compared to his main channel.
