Stephen Totilo’s told CrispyGamer that his move from MTV to Kotaku will put him in front of a new type of reader.

“What Kotaku allows me to do is reach another audience, a massive and passionate crowd of hardcore gamers and developers who, I think, already do respect the kind of reporting I and some of the Kotaku guys do, and will be happy to get even more of it,” he said.

“It’s exciting for me to get more consistently in front of that audience, although, you know, they’ve already gotten a lot of me because my Kotaku pals loved to link to Multiplayer a lot.”

Totilo confirmed last week that he was to leave MTV to become Kotaku’s deputy managing editor.
