Today Embalmit is sad to hear about the news of Gamespy.com shutting down. We at Embalmit appreciated the professionalism of Gamespy, which presented pc gaming news from an entertainment standpoint while keeping it brief and classy.
I know there are a lot of gaming news sites, but gamespy always had their own way of breaking the news, while other sites played catch up by commenting on the stuff the gamespy staff had written.
Now we won’t know what to read while drinking coffee in the morning, we’ll miss gamespy deeply.
Update: apparently also IGN has been hit with layoffs and 1UP has also been slashed. To me this makes little sense considering the recent boom of pc gaming.
