* DeliberateFlawRetcon: He's been known to do this on behalf of games he's particularly fond of, such as arguing that the clunky, awkward combat in the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' series aids in building the atmosphere and tension.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: He never even heard of Marth before playing ''Brawl'', and based on his other reviews, shouting "Franchise/FireEmblem" (or "VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia", which is where Marth ''actually'' debuted) loud enough near him [[BrownNote will cause his brain to explode.]]
* OneOfUs: Obviously considering he's a video game critic, but he's also been known to throw around the sort of terminology you normally only see on ThisVeryWiki (GenreDeconstruction for example). Who knows, he might even be a user.
** He has directly referred to this wiki in his "Let's Drown Out" series.
