Aww man, that really bites. I used to subscribe to EGM way back in 05-06, it was a pretty nice magazine and I really enjoyed reading Hsu&Chan.

IGN is pretty bad, and I don't really have a connection to the other sites but the article by the editor and chief on 1UP announcing their closing is pretty sad.

As long as gamespot and destructoid are safe I'm okay with anything
Yeah, IGN doesn't need any more sensationalist bullshit on their site.

Ign could use with some reworking on the content front... And the posters in the comment section makes my nose bleed and eyes lose focus.

At least allgamesbeta.com is still supreme - just straight up content, 24/7.

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.

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.

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.

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 :/

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.
