    Does anyone know what going on with the above, no new content in more than 2 months? I sent them a tweet (should that be a twix now?) but, no answer.

    I haven't spoken to Ben since the magazine folded, but by the look of things the Custom PC brand is being retired - it's all being posted under the PCGamesN brand now. I guess the new owners decided to consolidate.

    That was what everyone figured would happen when Hexus' owner bought Bit-Tech, interestingly - but it never did.

    End of an era - again!

    So the lack of an answer to a tweet, is likely because there is nobody there any more. Another one bites the dust...

    Yup. Ben's still writing, at least, and clicking on a few other articles it looks like Ed's there too. Don't recognise any of the other names, though. Weirdly, neither are listed on the PCGamesN About Us page.

    Ben as in Hardwidge and Ed as in Chester? They're both listed on that page.

    Are they? Couldn't see 'em when I looked earlier - must need to clean my glasses!

    EDIT:
    That page is completely different to when I looked earlier: everyone had pixel art profile pictures and neither Ben nor Ed were listed.
