News: The dark times continue.
Dan Hsu has worked on EGM for 11 years. The man deserves a break and is taking one... indefinitely.
It's with a heavy (and relieved) heart that I write this: I've tendered my resignation here at Ziff Davis Media and the 1UP Network. My last day here will be Friday, April 25.
This is my own decision; I'm not being forced out or laid off or anything like that. And this is not related to the recent news about Games for Windows: The Official Magazine (and I hope I'm not stealing any thunder away from those guys -- that's not my intention here). It's just time for me to move on. I've been here, mostly with EGM, since April of 1996. That's 11 years (taking off one year when I did a brief stint at Gamers.com)...quite a long time!
In his time he has put in some quality work that has especially kept me buying the magazine for years. I guess those achievement points are just too tempting. Good luck to you Dan Hsu.
Sam Kennedy will be taking over duties as Editorial Director for the 1UP Network.
