    @NeoSquall OMG! Never saw your comment but you win this comment section ;)

    @Dave Cook
    I hope he’s joking because i’ve just found it funny after reading it again in a party pooper tone. He isn’t completely wrong but i think we need to replace VG247 employees with robots to fulfil his complaints.

    Io resto qui, tanto il layout è lo stesso.

    I’ll stay here, the layout is the same and I really don’t like the new site version, very messy and unfriendly.
    Before the renewal vg247 was one of the default home pages in Chrome, now I check vg247 once or twice a week :(

    @Legendaryboss I know right? Clearly I have imagined working Saturdays for over 5 years now instead of doing, well, you know, things people do on Saturdays.

    I know, I just like reading his “opinions” :D

    @Stephany Nunneley
    Fun part is Saturdays are generally devoid of news from the Industry, a personal experience from 2 years of news reporting, in which I worked on Saturdays 3-4 times at best: maybe even PRs take a nap on week-ends?
    About the “long vacations at the end of the year”, please tell me how many news were posted on VG247 UK during the last Holidays. P/Reviews and opinion piaces don’t count.
