Indie Game Reviews- where gamers control the means of production

I would purchase one, hands down.
My only concern is if the games start using micro-transactions significantly.
Micro-transactions have destroyed gaming on mobile devices imo. I would rather play a game in 'chunks', purchasing said chunks a little at a time, than to play a game with expendable resources that I constantly have to either a) spend an exhorbitant amount of time on, or b) hop on the treadmill of constantly paying real money for.
If they can solve that problem, I would be in love.
Believes the individuals who report to moderators wish they had more control than they do.
