So, if you hadn't heard [link], former Destructoid Editor-In-Chief Robert Summa was let go from his position at Epileptic Gaming [link] (owned by the Global Gaming League [GGL]).
Apparently it was part of a restructuring, and there were other casualties. I don't really have strong feelings about the issue, just figured I'd post the news here first to spare him a total hazing. I mean, the guy did just lose his job, and that sucks unconditionally.
Perhaps, but necessarily, career advice
Not being an avid fan of GGL or Epileptic Gaming, which I will charitably describe as the hardest-trying videogames show on the web, I do want to say that I hope he lands on his feet. If it weren't for Summa, I wouldn't have escaped the clutches of that other place to land in the warm embrace of Destructoid, and all you wonderful people. Well, actually I have A LIST of people here who suck, but I'll PM you separately if you're on THE LIST.
