Jeff Green on 1Up/UGO

Greenspeak, the blog of one-time Computer Gaming World and Games for Windows editor Jeff Green, offers a counterpoint to the story below, as Jeff takes issue with Sam Kennedy's upbeat assessment of UGO's acquisition of 1Up. He says Sam is, "in a horrid position here, having to put a brave face on what is an unequivocally ugly mess. So I wish no ill-will on the guy, and, more important, those following this story need to know that none of this is his 'fault'. All this sh*t happened way above him. He's just trying to make the best of a bad situation. And to that I offer him a heartfelt and sincere good luck." Jeff goes through some of Sam's statements line-by-line, sorting through what he considers spin, saying, "You're not the same 1UP because you just lost a gigantic chunk of what made 1up 1up," and disbelieving that this is the "best news" 1Up could have received, he says the following: "Again, no. If this can be called 'the best news', I'd hate to see the bad news. In fact, it might be the best bit of news that you and the others who kept their jobs ever had, since you now don't have to be looking for work at the start of a new year, in the worst economic climate this country has been in in the last 80 years."

Jeff Green is an idiot. CGW and GFW mags were absolute fucking trash. Glad to see these idiots go.

Long live PCGamer and Maximum PC
I weep for your idiocy. I bet you never read a single issue of GFW Magazine or listened to a single episode of the GFW podcast. Jeff Green is awesome.
