His father's name is probably also 'Mike Villalobos.'
When he was ~seven years old, LobosJR’s parents got him and his brother a Nintendo Entertainment to share. They had a set amount of time that they could play per day and were bought obscure titles such as Legend of the Ghost Lion and Shadowgate. When he was older, their parents also bought them a Nintendo 64. They also played a variety of PC games.
The first time that he played Dark Souls was at his friend’s house while he watched him play. He completed it in 32 hours during his first run.
Prior to streaming fulltime, he worked as a QA Analyst at Bioware.
LobosJR originally started streaming on Justin.TV in 2011 after he was considering playing Final Fantasy 7 for the first time, but wanted to enjoy the same nostalgia of having his friends playing with him that he had as a child. A couple of his friends recommended that he stream on Justin.tv so that they could watch him, and so he tried it out. He discovered that he enjoyed streaming and continued to stream his other gameplays on his channel as well.
In 2012, he attempted his first speedrun with Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and really enjoyed it. He then tried to beat his previous record of ~4.5 hours. So, he started streaming them. He then began looking into previous records to see how his time measured up against other players for fun and he slowly gained viewers. However, his channel really took off after two main events.
The first was when he began streaming Dark Souls and the next was when he attempted to beat Dark Souls blindfolded with a ski-mask as his friends guiding him through the game by describing his surroundings. This ignited a series of speedrun challenges, with the next major event being his achieving a world record speedrun for Dark Souls using only a shield on March 20, 2013. It was only in 2015 that he started streaming fulltime. He joined N3rdfusion in March 2017.
In 2013, he and his local speedrunning friends began an annual charity event called ‘Awesome Games Done Eventually’ after being inspired by the ‘Awesome Games Done Quick’ team.
His brother is Lobrocop. He is dating BloodyfasterTV and they have two cats named ‘Nova’ and ‘Leo’.
