Farewell to GFW Radio


After the utter crappines of Jeff Green leaving 1UP last week (though you can check in on him on Jeff’s new blog), it was inevitable that the rest of the Brodeo would eventually follow suit, and it looks like Shawn Elliot, one of the smartest guys in games journalism, is following Jeff’s lead and moving from reporting to game development. While I wish both of them luck, I loved the irreverence, profanity and keen insight of GFW Radio, and it’ll be sad to not have it on my podcast playlist for a mid-week laugh. Listen to their last show and tip your hat to a fine bunch of fellas.

Update: The whole thing might be a hoax. Phew! And yuck, this egg on my face is sticky.

Further update: Or maybe it isn’t. About an hour into the GFW podcast, Elliot says he’s going o 2K Boston. There’s two more hours to go, so he may very well change his tune three times for all I know.
