*sigh*

A new shitty life awaits.

New job, I'm going to be a lot busier from Thursday next week and wont have all day access to a computer anymore. Can't post news by my phone.

I'll be driving around a lot all day as a company rep. I'm not looking forward to it and may have to work some hours on weekends too.

Looking at my stats it's been a long hard ride in newsposting. Joined VGPress on 2008-06-21 so it's been 9 years.
And I've done 53'671 News Posts.
Fifty three thousand.... jeez.
I won't be able to update as often as I would like. Maybe the first couple of weeks will be slow. Hope others pick up the slack, know from experience that wont happen. Well, considering I'll be in a car all day - Switch has come along at precisely the right time at least.
Hello Cruel World.

Thank you for your service. One day we'll build a statue for you.

On another note, congrats (maybe) on the new job. I'll assume you're a police officer working undercover as a prostitute in affluent neighborhoods.

Congrats GG.  I look forward to battling the ghost of your former self in Mario Kart and Splatoon.  Nyaa. Good luck with the new job, but why take it up if you already know you won't be liking it?

Also, losing you to a new job is much to be preferred over how the VirtualUnderground lost its biggest contributor.  He died of cancer.

Best of luck on your new job.  I'll try to post articles, but honestly, life will make that difficult.  Here is a statue I made for you.  Sorry, I only had your Mii to go by.

Thanks guys, but commiserations would be more appropriate. Why does anyone work? Cause we have to.

What the heck is that attached to the cow??

Thanks GG, I know from my stint it's a tough and mostly thankless endeavour, though keeps you on top of the news (and under the cow).

Salute.

Good luck with your new job, GG, and thank you for all your hard work with the site over the years. I can't believe we've been here this long already. I don't bother with any other gaming sites these days, so this has been largely my only source for news. Your significant contributions will be missed.

It's tuesday and you only have one more appointment for the whole week?  I need to reconsider my professional carreer.  Sad

I was shoved into the training day a month early so they didn't have stuff lined up for me week one. I don't get paid if I don't have appointments though. So the costs are building up.
