Gamer Network, parent company of such publications as Eurogamer, Gemesindustry.biz, Rock Paper Shotgun, Dicebreaker and few more, finally was acquited by IGN Entertainment. And, of course, they started with sacking people.


Eurogamer finally sold

After months of speculation, during which Reedpop (parent company of Gamer Network) was looking for a buyer, it was confirmed that IGN Entertainment is the new parent company of Gamer Network, which is a parent company for such brands as Eurogamer, Rock Paper Shotgun and Dicebreaker. And as it is traditional, IGN Entertainment celebrated that fact by... laying off some people working for those brands, sometimes for longer than a decade.

To be fair, the peak popularity of Eurogamer and Rock Paper Shotgun is long gone, Dicebreaker after a few years on the market is hardly making a dent in the tabletop community, not to mention the smaller brands that were part of Gamer Network, so perhaps people in charge of them are not the best available. But on the other hand, I would guess it takes more than few hours to estimate their value to the company and sacking them the moment deal was signed is, the least, heartless.

So, after turning Kotaku into a clickbait website, it looks like another OG gaming news website will be butchered soon. It’s a parent company eating parent company world out there.

And the Evil Corporation of the Year Award goes to...

What always fascinated me in the books, movies or video games was the concept of an evil corporation. They always had some nefarious, although logical, plans, they were powerful, they were crushing people just for the fun of it. They were always over-the-top, always taking part in some evil plans, and always had some twisted individual in charge of them. But in real life...


The curious case of Introversion Software

You might have never heard of Introversion Software, although you might have heard about their flagship title, Prison Architect, which was a big success on Steam between 2015 and 2019. So, how they ended up as curious case? Well, that is a good question.


It was worth it!

Few years back YouTube, as it is a tradition of that company, screwed over the creators on the platform by changing the rules of monetization and in single move cutting a lot of people from potential income. But at least now we can say it was all worth it!

No, I’m not talking about COVID, although that is spreading as well as we speak. Do you remember the old rule "if it’s free you’re not the client, you’re the product"? Well, we have to come up with new one...
