Today - The Escapist.
This popped up in the Twittersphere today. Defy media (who you'll remember also gave GameTrailers the boot) have shut down the The Escapist's headquarters. An official statement from Defy indicates that "a small number of people were impacted," but folks who actually, y'know, work at that office (or did, 'till today) report that every single full-time member of the staff has been laid off.
The Escapist has another, smaller office in Seattle, and Defy has said that the site will continue on - albeit with a much, much smaller staff.
Sorry, Escapites. Nobody's backin' a Patreon for you, I think.
I will miss Critical Miss, though. That's a quality gaming webcomic.
