All About Phil_E
For those of you who have been messaging me and asking what I'm up to nowadays, I've taken up the editor's post at www.gamesindustry.biz, which is a trade-focused news site.
But I'll of course still be hanging around here, checking out what the UK team are up to!
Well, the time has come to say goodbye to you all, as today is my last day at GameSpot UK.
The past 14 months or so has seen a remarkable change in the way that the UK team has integrated into the overall GameSpot offering, and there's still plenty to come. From taking part in Xbox Live matches against the US and Australian teams, to covering local console and software launches, working on "soccer" games in a British accent, looking after studio visits in the UK and Europe, putting together video features, chatting to you fine people on the UK forum, and my personal favourite, the setting up of the GameSpot UK podcast.
It's been great fun for me, and a pleasure to work with the rest of the UK team, and of course I'm immensely proud to be able to have counted myself alongside the exceptionally talented team in the US who we've all known and loved for so long.
I leave you in the more than capable hands of LozzaGS--I'll still be around here writing the odd blog post, and I can't wait to see some of the team's plans for the future come to fruition!
In the meantime, take care y'all, fly safe, happy gaming, etc, etc.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend I splashed out on a new TV for the study
I spent most of Monday thoroughly engrossed in various HD incarnations of my Xbox 360 games, and pretty soon I'll sort out digital TV in there too.
Which means I may never have to leave the room again, except to eat, sleep and visit the loo.

Phil_E does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Phil_E a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
