Always articulate, occasionally panicky, and very particular about his gaming tastes, Alex brings a unique view of video games to the Backlog Battle Podcast thanks to his professional experience in the industry. He bore witness to two generation transitions during his time at Activision, with credits that include Spider-man and X-Men: Mutant Academy for the original PlayStation, Ultimate Spider-man for multiple platforms, and Call of Duty 3 for the then debuting PlayStation 3 and Wii. Having this experience gave Alex a unique insight on trends in video gaming as well as a glimpse at the behind-the-scene goings on gamers may not be privy to.

Highly emotional, always stubborn, sometimes crass, but always loud, Anthony injects every episode of the Backlog Battle Podcast with pure enthusiasm and high energy.

It’s because of this that Anthony not only empowered an entire generation of YouTubers to break the established mold, but also encouraged them to express their own thoughts and feelings, no matter how controversial they may be.
