tear silently streams down cheek

He’ll still be on IGN and will continue to cover some big Nintendo games, but it’s the end of an era… I need a moment.

…OK, I’m good. Now that he’s multi-platform (well, he has been for a while, covering the Mobile/iPhone channel part-time), but TRULY multiplatform, he should get more well known and respected in the industry, and for his career it’s a good thing, and, and, and… >______<

Care/

…boo-hoo.

Game Over.

The title is misleading, as he’s not leaving IGN. He’s simply no longer Nintendo-exclusive.

aka he’s bored of the Wii.

Hey at least he still has a job and you still get to read his writings.

Everyone I loved is gone off to either make games or write about them only internally at Sony :frowning:

Who really gives a fuck?

Man up. At least he’s not leaving IGN, if that matters.

Dayum, you people are harsh.

But seriously Andrex, stop being a pussy-cat.

:lol

I thought that being promoted was a good thing.

Yeah it is and I touched on that in the OP, but it’s like the end of an era… more than a straight decade covering Nintendo… He gave Nintendo fans hope when there truly was none.

…damn I sound like Chad in this post. >_> harshly scrubs skin repeatedly

Make sure that when you write his obituary, you say you’re sorry to hear he’s making more money.

Its good for him as much as I like Nintendo there are other consoles and games.

I’m harsh because I love.
