The end of UK Resistance

Popular games journo Gary Cutlack has officially called time on his popular video games blog UK Resistance. The blog, which was a winner at the first ever Games Media Awards in 2007, has for a long time been a favourite amongst industry insiders for its glorious combination of brilliant writing, high-level offensiveness and outright foolishness.

It would seem the following statement gives reason to the decision for Gary to close the doors on UKR:

“a general feeling of disconnection from a games industry that no longer accommodates, or reflects our needs”.

I wouldn't have ever called myself an avid reader of UKR, but when I did partake in it's anarchy it never failed to entertain.
Anyway, here's a link to the site if you're curious and below is the closing vid from UKR featuring a brief look back over the last 15 years or so.
