John 'TotalBiscuit' Bain, popular gaming critic, dies at 33

Well known British game critic and YouTuber John "TotalBiscuit" Bain has passed away on May 24th, 2018.

Several tributes to TotalBiscuit have been posted to Twitter. The news was first announced on his official Twitter account, as well as the his wife's account. Although he reported that he was stable in late 2017, just a month ago doctors informed him that his liver was failing and the cancer was growing more aggressive.

Bain revealed he was retiring from being a PC computer game critics and commentator earlier this year, revealing his health was deteriorating. "I'm more overwhelmed with grief than I could possibly express", she added, in a subsequent tweet. He was suffering from bowel cancer which had spread to the liver.

"Average life expectancy is 2-3 years, though there are outliers that live much longer".

Bain had 2.2 million YouTube subscribers and gained popularity in 2010 by uploading footage of his gameplay to his channel in addition to reviews of the games.

And with this amendment, the last part of an oppressive system that subjugated women in Ireland for centuries has gone. As he left Dublin Castle, he stopped for selfies and chatted with the handful of Yes-supporters still in the forecourt.

She wrote: "I haven't even been home 24hrs yet, but I'm relieved @Totalbiscuit and I are out of the hospital".

TotalBiscuit won the Fan's Choice accolade at the 2014 The Game Awards and a 2012 Battle Royale, but donated his winnings to charity.

"I'm now coming to terms with the fact that I don't have long left", he wrote in a lengthy post on Reddit. I'll always be sad we never got around to doing that collaboration.

"John Bain's opinionated game critiques and sense of humour led to him becoming one of the most prominent voices in the gaming industry", it said in a statement.

Regular features included "TotalBiscuit suggests trying." and "WTF is." - long-form videos giving viewers an in-depth look at a new title, delivered in a colloquial, amusing style.
