Sad to hear. I guess things like this needs to happen from time to time.
Only because companies want all of the money to themselves via a monopoly.

One of my favorite editors from IGN, Ryan Clements was also laid off. I was already sad to hear about 1UP and Gamespy but the thought of never seeing Ryan again really... sucked that he had to go.
Crazy. It's like they just went through my personal list of "Good writers, to acceptably good writers, who are at least not as damned annoying as Greg Miller" - and just fired everyone on it.

hm, never really liked IGN's reviews for their bashy and negative nature that always appear a little more personal then neutral and informative. it attracts a certain kind of follower that always seems to be out for blood and arguments. their IGN YouTube account is nothing different either. i lost count of all the depraved little dirt bags who are trying to sexually harass the hostess for whatever reasons in the comment section.

still sad to hear about the employees being layed off though. the economic crisis is already carving his way through the world and now this happens. try and find a proper job in this time :/

I really don't know where to go now for gaming articles. 1UP was the only one that seemed to see video games on the same level that I did, with a deep and careful understanding of games as an important part of our culture. Guess that shit doesn't sell.

Abyss Raider and starfighter I take it you don't know about Polygon.com then? Best gaming news site in my opinion with awesome reviews and tons of unique video content.
