The Ziff Davis group just recently filed for bankruptcy,I wouldn't be surprised if more employees left.

Yeah gotta agree with Rice, this is the second 1UP member to leave this year. First it was Brian Inthar and Now Shoe.

Yay he can let his bias self leave so 1up/EGM gets a whole lot less bias. All he does is give 10s to xbox 360 games. When was the last time Shane B. has given a 10 to a PS2/PSP/PS3 game?

don't forget Mark who's working at Konami now.

and lol he still haven't gotten that Mile High Club achievement. I almost got it one time but the 2-3 dudes at the end surprised me (didn't know they were there).

Good riddance to one of the most incompetent and biased journalists in the business.

Don't need this idiot in the gaming world anymore.

socomnick3208d ago

Why do you sony fanboys hate him ? Im a little curious he did not seem to show too much bias well except toward halo.

decapitator3208d ago

No one hates him bro, is just that that notion that Halo is the greatest game ever and that it sh!ts on anything past and future is what gamers disagree with him.

socomnick3208d ago

I see Decapitator. :) Thing is it doesn't really bother me because a review is someones opinion. I believe he really loves halo thats why he gave it such high remarks.

decapitator3208d ago

You pretty much gave the best answer on this post about reviews. Wish more gamers saw it like you, I and a few other people.

Hatchetforce3208d ago

He was the editor of EGM. Need I say anymore?

Man, a lot people will happy....some will be sad. I am sure the most will be happy though.

DRUDOG3208d ago

Gotta say I have mixed feelings. EGM wasn't ever the same after ZD bought 'em so some of those feelings for the magazine weren't necessarily his fault. I didn't always agree with some of the stuff he said/did (recently, the little review fued that made it seem like he was biting the hand that fed him wasn't cool at all), but he certainly wasn't bad for the mag. They say that the pub is bigger than ever, whatever that means to us readers...

The timing is kind of odd since he was just "kicked" upstairs out of the editor-in-chief job at the magazine. A person would think that he would've stuck to that longer than a month or whatever time it's been.

first half gamespot staff quits and now 1up's.

sure 1up staff are leaving for better resions (not getting paid)

but I blame the hippies

tplarkin73208d ago

I think he upset many Nintendo and PS3 fans due to his blatant preference for the 360 and Xbox Live. The way I see it, he just had good taste.
