This was posted a few days ago, so I know I’m late to the party.
It bums me out because they’re still the place I go to for news headlines. The site was actually what inspired me to start Grouvee as a video game blog so long ago. I always liked the tone of the site, and it was the easiest place for me to go figure out what was going on in the industry. Places like Polygon, Kotaku, and even Giant Bomb have so much other “stuff” on their site, that it’s hard sometimes to just filter out what’s going on.
I’ll miss you Joystiq (if you’re actually closing).
