Wait.. who?

Mike B, Micheal, Mike, B, Baka (..), Fony, Akah M'Keb (yes, seriously). For the better part of the past decade, I've worked closely with several indie and AAA developers, co-founded a live gaming news media site, helped kick-start several content creators' careers, and have even done my time working behind-the-scenes in games journalism. During this time, I've created thousands of videos covering a range of topics from indie game reviews to industry/convention news and analysis.

Neat, so why have a Patreon?

I'd prefer to avoid sponsorships and interstitial advertising if possible, but that leaves me with having to foot the bill for copies of games, video creation tools and hardware, convention travel expenses, etc. The pledges given through this Patreon will allow me to not only cover the costs of creating content and doing convention coverage, but it will also provide a much needed source of income for my family.

What do I get?

You get an ongoing steady stream of video and live streaming content, early previews of upcoming shows, access to a fantastic community of like-minded players, and the unmistakable feeling of joy and elation from knowing that you've supported me in this venture. 


Whether you decide to pledge now or not, I appreciate you taking a moment to check out my Patreon page. o7
