Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Audrey Drake leaves IGN

http://www.ign.com/blogs/aminka/2013/06/19/aminka-says-goodbye/

 

I know these news are kinda old... still... pretty sad. I really liked her articles and reviews and she was overall a very cheerful editor.

IGN has no longer a Nintendo Team.



Around the Network
I really wonder why all the Nintendo writers for the site left.

I LOVE ICELAND!

Was not a fan of her at all to be honest, felt her reviews had a lot of bias in them, especially when she would criticize games on other systems for mechanics that she would praise on nintendo's systems.

I thought IGN hadn't had a dedicated Nintendo team for a while now? The Nintendo subsections brought in a downright pitiful amount of the site's total traffic at one point (something on the order of 2-3%), so it would make sense...

Present life in a nutshell

Currently replaying: Super Mario World. Harder than i remember <_>

Well, in her case, she got a really awesome job. (Localization in the Nintendo Treehouse)

Started from the bottom, now she quit.

Wow, that's awesome! Good for her.

I always found her not quite grounded enough as a reviewer, but she seemed nice.



Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say a ground-up Wii U Zelda won't release in 2014. (Hyrule Warriors doesn't count)
Bet with fatslob: I say Watch Dogs Wii U will be technically inferior to the 360/PS3 versions according to Digital Foundry.
Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say Monolith Soft's X won't release in 2014.

The King Returns 16/5/14

Is any one else baffled by her name when they first saw it? I mean Audrey Drake. Audrey + Nathan Drake when married xD Anyways, she is joining a division of the real Nintendo anyways.

Is Rich George still there? He'll pretty much be the entire Nintendo team now, with Lucas Thomas pitching in when he's not reviewing iPhone games.
