Gah just another reason to not go to IGN for nintendo coverage. At this point all that's left is rich and Peer for Super NVC.

Cool thing though she's leaving to work at the treehouse localization team.

Wow, this sucks! I mean great for her, she's moved on to bigger and greater things > Nintendo Treehouse.
But she was the shining light of IGN, full of spunk and personality, possibly the most colorful, exciting, most interesting and enthusiastic writer at IGN. Matt, Bozon, Fran and maybe Craig may of been the ultimate NintenTeam, but Audrey was the next best thing! Also, apperantly Rich(he wrote GREAT reviews, but he had the personality and charm of a stale bag of potato chips) has now jumped ship....

Honestly, is there ANY reason for Nintendo fans to even go to IGN anymore? :p Bah, it's going to take some time warming up to the inevitable new NintendDuo....Again, awesome for her, but IGN has now taken another massive blow.

I guess Rich is but honesty I only know him for hyping non news. As a site the Nintendo stuff has gone all downhill (lets be honest everything has gone down hill in my eyes expect the comics and PlayStation Divsison)

WAT!

What ever happened to jessica Chobot the glorified PSP licker? is she still hating on Nintendo and having Portal pizza nights? her blog was very entertaining I'll give her that, during the DS Lite & early wirly Wii days. And as for Greg, i can't stand the guy. his reviews are so off the mark half of the time, especially when he guest reviews a nintendo game.... We all know he's a full blown sony fanboy and his reviews for that console are completely exaggerated. But he at least stands out among the crowd with his goofy dude antics. Also, Daemon Hatefield is another one of my least favorites.

Meanwhile Colin talks way too fast for his own good, it's like a machine gun spewing out the alphabits. I think I'm going to make Destructoid my new home, aside from nintendo Life. Johnathon holmes imo dishes out the most entertaining videogame reviews on the web, he's a true nintendo fan and his mega man 9 & 10 reviews for ex were just phenomenal.

Also, IGN's new design is just awful....colorless, grey streamlined junk for the masses. The site looked a lot better in 09 if you ask me.

I think you summed it up in your first post pretty well Waveboy. This is actually pretty sad, since she was pretty much the whole Nintendo section of the site.
I always liked Audrey's reviews just because she was always excited for the games she was reviewing, and just an upbeat person in general. Looks like IGN is going the way of Gamespot now.

@Sony_70 - They still have a comics devision? I thought it was scrapped along with the Anime division years ago.

Ehh...no loss on my part. I stopped going to that IGNorant site in February. :P It's good to hear my favorite employee there is not only leaving that cesspool but literally joining the Nintendo ranks. THAT's her REAL passion. :)

I only went to IGN pretty much for the gameplay videos, and youtube made that irrelevant.

Yes, people still go to a site you don't. Shocking, I know.


I could care less what she does. Obviously she has her reasons.

Can't remember if she was good looking or not

If so, this is a terrible loss.

Seriously

They need to start practicing my love-based approach to posting. Remember guys, you kill more bees without vinegar.. or something like that.

Her reviews were really postive for IGN's standards. She also was kinda cute in a geeky kinda way. She will be missed. :3
