UK games charity GamesAid has announced this afternoon that Intent Media founder Stuart Dinsey has become its new chairman. He takes over from Bethesda’s Sarah Seaby, who has acted as the group’s chairperson for the last three years. “Having been in the games business for over 25 years, I know exactly how a lot of people feel about charity. In reality, they want to support it, it is a good thing, but fund-raising has to be done the right way, objectives must be clearly set out and there must be complete transparency and inclusiveness at all times,” he said. “GamesAid fits the criteria above, which is why I am happy to be chairman, but I will be firmly in the background.”

Dinsey and co at Intent have just gone live with a new look for trade site MCV. The new site, as well as the redesign, features a new comment system and the introduction of MCV Pacific, a brand new service dedicated to those in Australia and New Zealand and more. The site’s basically 404′ing right now, but otherwise, congrats to all the lot at MCV and Intent.

The CVG editor job became vacant recently after long-term word-boss Gavin Ogden decided to move out to New Zealand.
The job’s been advertised internally at Future and has seen many applicants. Looks as though outside was the way to go.
Congrats, Tim. Good show.
Now. Who’s going to get the MCV job?

Former Edge Online editor Colin Campbell has posted a withering explanation of his reasons for leaving the site, saying that Future’s “fiddling with Excel spreadsheets is a poor defense against revolution.”
Campbell finished a notice period with Future last Friday, having resigned thanks to Future’s decision to bring control of Edge Online from the US to the UK. Writers Kris Graft and Rob Crossley have also quit.
“Edge Online’s new bosses claim they want to ‘integrate’ the online and print facets of the magazine,” said Campbell, writing on the newly-launched GameBizBlog.
“I believe this to be an error. Although the Edge voice ought to be maintained throughout all its activities, any attempt to reshape a dynamic daily website in the image of a monthly print magazine is conceptually and practically highly problematic.”
Future’s insistence on nurturing paper products, Campbell said, was a refusal to accept the truth of today’s games journalism.
“The story of the game industry is now being told via lightning fast websites and blogs of phenomenal competence and editorial quality,” he added.
“The days when giant print brands dominated the mediascape are over.”
You go, girl. Colin’s now heading up Intent’s business in the US, based in San Fran. And just in case you were wondering, pop stars, GameBizBlog “is not competing with anyone for advertising dollars”.
And this one, right here, has bells on it. Good luck with it, dude!

Edge Online boss Colin Campbell has left the site to work for MCV-owner Intent.
Campbell will be based in San Francisco, taking a role as “head of US content and business development”.
“When managerial responsibility of Edge Online was moved from Future’s US office to its UK office, I felt that it was the right time for me to move on,” said Campbell.
Best of luck, Colin.

MCV’s posted up details of this year’s Game Media Awards, to be held this year at the Jongleurs Comedy Club in Camden, London. The inaugural GMAs was held last year. From the site:
This time, the voting panel will be MCV’s entire readership. In other words, the UK video games industry. There will also be fewer awards in total – a move designed to ratchet up the prestige attached to each one.
The Games Media Awards are being backed by five Gold Sponsors: Microsoft, Nintendo, Activision, Codemasters and Electronic Arts. All recognise the importance of specialist, mainstream, print and digital media – and the value of rewarding the best in their particular field.
Categories are to be announced shortly, and voting will take place through August and September.
