    Nooooooooo don't go! Digi said he will pay twice your wage if you stay! :p

    In all seriousness, you will be truly missed CardJoe. I hope that you will stay participate on this forum, and continue to be part of this community, it won't be the same without you. :(

    Don't forget Joe tweets a lot, mostly boring stuff and rants etc

    I do like the tweeted conversations with his girlfriend. You will be missed Joe.

    Eep least you are earning my friend.

    I do not apologise for this, though I do regret it.

    Baz don't listen to Joe, you know he loves you.

    I chuckled lots after seeing those memes.

    As a long time reader of your articles and reviews, you will be missed. Thanks for all the spectacular work Joe and good luck in whatever it is that you're going on to.

    By the way - you fight like a dairy farmer :thumb:

    Well, Joe, I hope you have every success in your new job. I rarely sign in here any more, as personally I feel it's lost a lot of what it had, and now it's losing you too. Your reviews were ones which were honest, forthright and witty, not to mention that if you liked the game there was a very good chance I would too, as we have similar tastes when it comes to games. I have been mooching on twitter for a while now though, so look forwards to keeping in touch on there, as well as sharing in odd/underused words we know occasionally. Anything else I could say would just be echoing other's sentiments.

    Sara.

    Somehow I managed to completely miss this.

    Good luck Joe; without your reviews I'd never have found games like 'The Path'. As many others have said, you'll be missed.

    I haz a sad :(

    Another sad day for bit-tech as one more great staff member moves on to greener pastures :sigh: I will be following you on Twitter etc from now on though. All the best with your new venture(s) and thanks for so many great game reviews and articles! Please do drop in every now and then to make sure the place isn't on fire, or worse; being relentlessly spammed full of nonsense :)

    Just a little FYI that Mat Jones will be stepping in to replace me as Games Editor under the new editor, Ed Chester. Mat has my hearty recommendation and is an amazing writer who I've followed for a long time. I'm sure he'll do well here.

    You can follow Mat on Twitter as @pillowfort and you can listen to his Oh No Videogames podcast too, if you're interested in getting to know him better.

    Wait, there is a new editor as well now. What happened to Brumgrunt? I'm confused!
