from the front page.  wow, 1Up has seemed to be slowing down but they've always had interesting stuff.  Won't miss Gamespy.  Not sure if there is anything on UGO that I cared about either.

I feel bad for all the people who are going to be out of a job frown

[edit] oh, 1Up is on UGO.  never noticed that until now.

The EIC of 1-up is a former buddy from HS.  He was always obsessed with Megaman and was our resident artist, even designing our senior T-shirt.

From his Twitter, he'll be moving to IGN's pool.

Eh, honestly, this has been coming. I know Ziff had multiple sites that all did the same thing for a while now and was wondering why they were all still open separately.

I used to really enjoy gamespy, but IMO they lost their edge some years ago. I'll never forget their Gary Gyrax interview though, which was damn good. I never was a fan of UGO or 1Up, so I won't miss them.

Ah, crap! I actually came to enjoy 1up these past couple of years. What a shame.

I actually still listen to all the podcasters from those sites, on all the places they have ended up. So I'm really not missing anything.
