Well, this has been quite a weekend. I was just gonna talk about the new games I've been playing (Mercenary Kings and Child of Light), but then things started getting really serious around the site. Namely, seven staff members (that I've counted so far) have been laid off, including Spencer Hayes, Phil Janca, Casey Baker, Brett Zeidler, Joshua Derocher, Harry Monogenis, and most surprisingly, Conrad Zimmerman. The Dtoid Twitch channel is also going dark for the time being.
This is a huge bummer... I wish everyone who was laid off the best, and I hope they can find something else soon. They will be missed :(
All of this also has me a little worried about the state of the site, but I dunno... I don't want to jump to any conclusions. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens to Destructoid from here on out. There are still some fantastic people on staff, but the lay-offs are certainly disheartening. I mostly stick to the Cblogs anyway, though, and it's not like those will be going anywhere. As long as there's still a community in the Cblogs, then I'll still have a place to call home on the internet!
