He's a consumer rights advocate/game critic. He usually reports about the industry like a saner, more honest version of Infowars.

He's really not for those who can't stand too much negativity. But sometimes, it can be cathartic to hear a passionate rant you can actually agree with.

He is good about bringing up anti consumer practices for DLC/Patch/early access/micro transactions/loot boxes, etc It a YouTube channel that the critic will like as it shows how bad modern gaming business practices have become.

Which is why I don't understand how the VCS indie-go-go got 3M+ from over 11,000 backers. For all its incompetence at least the Jaguar was a real gaming system with actual games. This new VCS resembles old vaporware like Indrema and Phantom brought to life.
