Older gamers might recall a gaming magazine by the name of GamePro. I used to read these pretty regularly while waiting around a store for someone else to finish shopping for something boring like food or clothes or whatever. Welp, looks like another one of those old timey books is going belly up.
Thank you for your loyalty, support, and participation in the GamePro.com community. At noon on December 5, 2011, the U.S. version of GamePro online will shut down as an independent site. GamePro will become part of PCWorld.com (http://www.pcworld.com/gamepro) offering gaming news, reviews, and how-tos from the PCWorld team. Thank you to the entire GamePro staff for their hard work and dedication.
I’m not going to ebb on and on about how it was better ‘in the day’ or even harp about the internet killing the magazine star or anything like that. I will say I remember a lot of the ’cast’ of characters in there and that I could pretty easily find an old copy of one of their mags in some drawer I haven’t opened in years. Egoraptor even included one of their characters in an animation about Ninja Gaiden, which is where I’ll end this post.
