Colin Moriarty has announced his aquisition of a stake in indie game studio, Lillymo Games, and will serve as Chief Creative Ofiicer.
This is really cool. Colin's success is directly attributed to his consistency in the industry. He made IGN great. He founded Kinda Funny. He now has CLS with amazing shows like Knockback and the #1 gaming and #1 Playstation podcast Sacred Symbols. One of games media's largest asset. hope they develop a Metroidvania.
Hell yes to Metrovania. Maybe even a Megaman clone since he's probably the biggest MM fan out there. I stopped going to IGN when he left, and stopped listening to KF when he left there. The guy brings intelligence and humor to games media, and isn't just "OMG let's do a live hype fest reaction to every damn piece of gaming news." I don't give a shit about his politics, and I appreciate that he doesn't give a shit about mine. Even if you're not a PS gamer, Sacred Symbols is probably one of the best general gaming podcasts out there.
Good luck Colin, you deserve it
Dude, persevered through a lot of bs. Glad he made it through and became even more successful.
All over a silly harmless joke that he refused to apologize for. Good on Colin. Greg can rot in hell for all I care, he's a gutless spineless worm.
Greg sold himself and threw his friend under the bus for money (as you can see by the atrocious EA Live). Colin made a twitter joke: "Ah. Peace and quiet. #ADayWithoutAWoman" And he was cancelled for only saying that, he got kicked out of the company he founded in his own house, his "friends" turned their back on him, everybody shunned him for something SO stupid.
Agreed. It takes guts to stand your ground, especially these days. Much respect for people that refuse to bend the knee.
Part of me believes he was ousted because his peers did not agree with his political stance. If he was a left-wing progressive I believe it would have gotten some chuckles and the joke would have been forgotten. And I'm saying this as someone who doesn't agree with Colin's politics is more left leaning. That doesn't stop me from enjoying his content and respecting the guy. Lost all respect for the rest of those screaming idiots who betrayed him. That one dumb jackass never knows what the hell he's talking about. I lose brain cells every time I hear him speak. I'm sure I don't have to mention names.
I want him to build a new Sherlock Holmes game. That would be EPIC!
I wish him lots of success. I've followed him since Kinda Funny and he seems like a great guy who (thankfully) doesn't put up with any of this modern day political correctness bullshit.
I quit supporting Kinda funny after Colin came out with his story about Greg basically giving him the shaft after 10+ years of friendship and Greg was like No I want nothing to do with Colin because he has his brand and I have mine. So good for Colin, I hope he continues his success.
oof. Colin's games are trash. I'd be worried if I was a part of that company. Great journalist, terrible at making games.
Colin was in the right while Greg was completely in the wrong when Kinda Funny fell apart.
I’m not the biggest fan of Colin but what happened to him was scummy I’m glad to see his is still doing well in the despite all the unnecessary crap he had to go through.
Cool fan of most of his work BUT will he still cover these titles under CLS, surely we’re meant to discourage conflicts of interest in games media, even if it is already rampant
