This is my 12,802nd article for Cinema Blend. It's also, unfortunately, my last. I'm moving on to a new opportunity so this is my final day as editor.
I don't know how many work hours it took to write those 12,802 articles. It's safe to say, though, that this website is the biggest project I've ever undertaken. Nights, weekends and holidays have been spent in the pursuit of writing about video games both good and terrible.
Juggling the website with other obligations hasn't always been easy but now, looking back, my feelings about the past eight years are very simple: it's been a pleasure. This job let me talk about a subject I love directly to thousands and thousands of gamers each day. It also gave me a valid excuse to sink uncountable hours into gaming ("Just doing research for an article!"). How cool is that?
Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Many people will say never to read the comments but I can't not do it. I'm always tickled that someone took the time to craft a response to something I wrote, even if the response is simply "Fuck Destiny" or "People still play this game?" Should you ever want to remind me of how much you hate Destiny, I'm just a tweet away
Gaming Blend (or Blend Games or CB Games or whatever name you prefer) will continue growing thanks to Will, Ryan and whatever other people get hired in the future to match their awesomeness. I'm excited to see how the site evolves in the future.
But anyway, here's what you missed in gaming news this week:
