Sad News For Computer Games Magazine

I was just reading Guilded Lilies and she found out that Computer Games Magazine’s publisher TheGlobe.com has shut down the magazine. TheGlobe.com is apparently in the middle of a lawsuit for spamming 100,000 Myspace accounts; that was their brilliant marketing technique. Way to go morons.

Reminds me of the some marketing spam that all the Second Life related forums were getting for Nissan last summer. It’s just sad that the casualty for these idiots is Computer Games Magazine and their sister magazine for MMO’s, Massive. Both were written very well and were geared for the older gamers, not just for teenagers. Hopefully both staffs will emerge from this and get a publisher with morals.
