ATTENTION: I spent many great years as part of the community here at GameSpot (six as a matter of fact), and I made some good friends that I still talk to to this very day. But when the site was redesigned I became disillusioned with some of the changes made. I used to blog a lot here and was part of many unions, but the redesign rendered user blogs almost pointless and got rid of unions altogether. The redesign also screwed up a lot of my user reviews. Because of this I have now moved my gaming blog and my reviews to Game Informer Online. So have some of my friends here at GameSpot, including users like Matastig and Asagea_888 (who now goes by the username kungfubunny9876). I will no longer visit this site, other than to leave the very occasional comment. No more reviews. No more blogs. No more forum posts. It has all moved to Game Informer. I don't regret the years I spent here as part of the GameSpot community, it was great while it lasted, but sadly all good things come to an end. Game Informer has become a great alternative and allows me to do the things I used to love here at GameSpot. I will eventually move across and re-write many of the reviews I wrote while a member here.

If you want to read my blogs and see what I am up to you can visit my Game Informer profile. I'd highly recommend you all make the switch to Game Informer too, especially those of you who also feel disillusioned with the new site. Alternatively, why not add me on either Steam, PSN, Xbox Live or Nintendo Network. Or add me as a friend on 3DS. See you all later. Thanks for the memories.
