** Ditto for his "WTF is..." on ''FrozenSynapse'', which received such a ColbertBump that the game servers couldn't take the amount of players they got.
** His review for ''{{Proun}}'' received such high traffic that the developer's site crashed from the volume of traffic. This was the only place where the game could be bought.

** His "WTF is..." on ''StellarImpact'' once again crashed the servers with the publicity his community brought. [[HilariousInHindsight Funny enough]], he had warned the indie developers that his community tended to crash websites before, and one of them said "[[TemptingFate Feel free to can crash my servers any time]]."

* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: In 2016, TB retired from social media because he felt it was negatively impacting his health. His Twitter has since been taken over by a staffer.

Thankfully this was later averted as TB opened a brand-new official subreddit in June and has been pretty good at interacting with fans on there(and even promising to do AMAs).

* AuthorExistenceFailure: He isn't dead as of the time of writing, but has been diagnosed with inoperable cancer and it is sadly expected that he only has a couple of years to live.

* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: He publicly ended his association with the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}'s "Big Three" (LetsPlay/LewisBrindley, LetsPlay/SimonLane and an unspecified third member) after falling out over Yogdiscovery, Lewis falsely accusing TB of doing non-disclosed sponsored content and Simon calling him a "crying pissbabby" over a ''comic book'' of all things. He later clarified that he doesn't have a beef with everyone in the network, as shown by his interactions with LetsPlay/{{Strippin}} and LetsPlay/{{Sips}}, plus his picking LetsPlay/{{Sjin}} for the Polaris Civil War crossover.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: During his VerySpecialEpisode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uwAo8lcAC4 "Tragedy and Video Game Violence"]], which was about mass murders, the media and video games being used as a scapegoat, TB used a clip from ''Series/{{Newswipe}}'' that showed prior coverage of other shootings, and pointed out that the footage he'd opted to show had been purely from the BBC. This wasn't entirely correct; ''Newswipe'' was a BBC programme and the full segment does feature elements of BBC News, but from the footage he ''had'' used, the news reports were from ITV and Sky News, not the Beeb.

** TB has stated that he despised his Terraria series, seeing as it spawned {{forced meme}}s and the viewership is highest when nothing was accomplished at all.

** TB is a fan of several other things unrelated to video games, which he will occasionally talk about in great detail. For instance, he is a huge fan of Creator/TerryPratchett (If [[Discworld/CarpeJugulum the source of the name "Total Biscuit"]] wasn't enough of an indicator) and has openly admitted to being a [[{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40k]] fanboy (during a video of his where he [[{{Squee}} squee'd]] all over [[VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine a WH40K game]], no less).
*** Which he demonstrated in a Warhammer40k Roleplay wherein he (playing as a Mechanicus Acolyte) managed to out-nerd the GM.
