According to a user on Reddit you can't talk about this subject on 4chan: https://amp.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAction ... ems_youre/

I've never even been able to make sense of how to bloody navigate that mess.

Oh lordy what news to wake up to.

Welcome GAFites (GAFians?).
I used to browse GAF, albeit never often, mostly when big releases came out, never signed up for an account as it looked quite a poisonous environment.

Barely one positive comment on Twitter about the place; everyone seems roundly overjoyed at its apparent demise.

Here's the closest you'll get to a statement from Microsoft... (Corporate Vice President, Windows and Xbox)

Good for game news. Community has its bunch of pricks, but then a forum that big is bound to have some.

Am I the only one around here who stays faithful to GRcade at all times? What the strawberry float is a NeoGAF?

Revenge porn? Getting in the shower with someone uninvited?! What the strawberry float.

Where the breaking news journalists got their info from.

Not really surprised Microsoft would want it dead. It's been ultra negative against them for a while now. I know MS haven't helped themselves at times, but some of the criticism was over the top. Whilst the forum was clearly biased in favour of Sony especially as one of the admins used to work for Adam Boyes.

Hope NeoGaf comes out of this intact, it's my primary source for gaming news these days.

The alternative seems to be the Express and Daily Star's "GAMES SHOCK" "news" that's infesting Google Search.

I think I'm going to opt for Reddit and Twitter. Not sure about which specific subreddits, etc, though.

Same. I make comments on Nintendo life occasionally but not without feeling guilty.

I don’t understand the logic behind this - If evilore is one of the founders/current owner, wouldn’t buying neogaf essentially give him even more money for being.... well, not a nice guy?
