A Word of Thanks

Horizon

Before we ride off into the sunset, I have some last words to say. Lots of words actually.

Firstly, I want to thank the readers of this site. I used to write reviews at GameFAQs, ENWorld, and RPG.net among others, just for fun. But writing here was a larger audience, including people who would buy games based partly on my opinion. That realization was something of a shock to me, and that responsibility wasn’t something I took lightly. I like to think I was a better reviewer because of it.

Secondly, I want to thank all those great companies that kept the lights on for this long, supporting our site with advertising, information, and of course, games to cover and review in the first place. All the people at Frima, Laughing Jackal, and FuturLab, who have been wonderful. Alexey at Beatshapers, Jakub at Grip Games, Rich formerly with Icon Games and now Super Icon, Ish at Twisted Dragon Media, Anna at G5 (who stopped support very early in the Minis program, but friended me on Facebook anyway). The guys at Mediatonic, the Tiny Hawk guy, the students at that Swedish game school, and others I’m likely forgetting.

Thirdly, I want to thank the other people at this site. Chris for starting the place and paying for everything. The somewhat mysterious Maura and Dan, who reviewed games but rarely talked with me much. Jasper for steering the site so nicely over the years and being such a cool guy. O for being so enthusiastic in helping this site and being an even cooler guy. And of course onmode-ky for fixing all my mistakes.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone on the forums. I’ve made a lot of forum friends over the years, but you guys are among the best. I hope you guys stick around.

    Talking about developers, didn’t a representative of HalfBrick stop by and say something somewhere? Oh well. It’s lost in the fields.

    Also, I am kind of shocked that there was no mention of Open Emotion Studios.

    Most of us already connected through PSN, so even in the worst case we still gots it!!!

    Minis was one of the best things to hit portables since GB days, too bad PSM killed it now… And itself…

    As the longest-operating reviewer here, and the one who did every single Farm Frenzy review :P , you deserve and get a hearty salute from me, JeremyR.

    Huicho, that’s covered under “others I’m likely forgetting.” And I honestly don’t recall Halfbrick talking to us before.

    I just found it. It was an old thread about Rocket Racing (Aero Racer). HalfbrickMuscat.

    I appreciate all you’ve done for us. The amount of crap you’ve reviewed over the years is mind blowing. How you’ve manage to not loss your interest in gaming is the million dollar question.
