I am leaving Destructoid. It was a hard decision, that I have being struggling for a long time now. It was not a rushed decision, neither a easy one, but this will be my last blog here on Destructoid. After almost a year and more than a hundred blogs it is a very sad day to me to say this. Farewell and Thank you all.
I am leaving because Destructoid in the last few months have changed too much. Or maybe it was always like that and I just perceived it recently. This site is navigating too close in the 'sensationalist tabloid' territory to its own good. Sometimes they just go right there. And I can't be part of this.
Destructoid says it is 'By Gamers, For Gamers.' Well, at least they used to say this when I started here. Today it feels too much like By Jim Sterling, for Clicks. Yes, he is one of the reasons I leaving. I can't support this guy by being one of the 'clicks' here.
The saddest part is that the community, the guys at the c-blogs and forums, are great guys and girls. But I can't support them without supporting Destructoid as a whole. And I can't be part of the problem. If Destructoid wants to be the most popular site instead of the best one, ok. Just count me out.
I will keep blogging, though, as I like to do it. I moved to the 1up site for my blogging. You can keep following PVC there, if you really liked it. But god, I will miss a lot of people.
Elsa, the greatest blogger here, VenusInFur, bbain (my biggest PVC fan), Alisdair, Andy Dixon, Wolfy, manasteel88, Byronic Man (who nows goes as Stephen), Corduroy Turtle, LawofThermalDynamics, Beyamor, pokota, Occams, Lenigod, meteorscrap, scissors, trev, and many others that I am sorry for not citing directly. I will miss all of you.
Send me a pm, if you are interested in my e-mail to keep contact. I would leave it here, but we all know the dangers of letting personal info in the open on the internet. Maybe one day I shall return, if Destructoid changes for better. It was a great time, that will never be forgotten. Thanks for reading my last blog here.
Farewell, thank you for all the 'faps'.
