Today is a sad day. Today sees the internet bid farewell to one of the finest gaming sites around - Gary Cutlack and co.'s UK:Resistance.
'It’s time. Or rather, it was time about three years ago and we have only just got around to making it formal,' read the closing statement on the site.
'I’m going out. Might be some time. Save me a few of those Sonic The Hedgehog pasta shapes, if they haven’t gone rotten inside the tin. Thanks for everything, everyone. It’s been character defining.'
Eschewing traditional pretensions towards objectivity, UK:Resistance instead adopted a humorous editorial style that, simply put, professed to hate all things Sony and adore all things SEGA. Created back in 1996, it won the inaugural Best Blog gong at the GMAs in 2007 and has been tickling funny bones for 15 years. We are sad to see it go.
God bless the Resistance!
