In a tumultuous start to the day for IGN, the company is undergoing layoffs with Joystiq also reporting that its sister sites - 1UP, UGO, and Gamespy - are all expected to shut down. "We are focusing on our two flagship brands, IGN and AskMen. Unfortunately, as a result, we have made the decision to close sites and restructure our teams accordingly," a company spokesperson confirmed to Joystiq. Among those affected by the IGN layoffs is Colin Campbell, the ex-Senior Features Editor. Campbell's work has been critically lauded and has won several awards over the last few years, which makes it all the more surprising to see that he was let go. This news comes not a month after IGN was purchased by Ziff Davis through its parent company j2 Global. Game Podunk wishes the best to those affected by the layoffs. Source: Joystiq, Colin Campbell
1up isn't a site I visit often, but they do have neat articles from time to time. http://www.1up.com/features/learning-level-design-mario This is an in-depth article about some of the classic Marios' level designs, and... er, basically how they work and how well they're done. It's an interesting read, so I thought I'd share it
Various sources have indicated that IGN has laid off at least four staff members across IGN and 1UP today, including: Matt Leone Jack Devries Ryan Winterhalter Thierry â€œScooteré Nguyen A few of them have even tweeted about it, confirming that it was their last day at IGN/1UP. Sad news for sure, and I hope they're able to recover and find new jobs quickly. Source: VG247.com
