This is really sad news. I have been a fan of PAR since they started two years ago.

The post by Ben Kuchera doesn't go into the details about why they're ending their run, but alas, it's over.

Ben, feel free to come post over here :)

See more here:

EDIT: Penny Arcade proper posted some info about this, saying that it was to streamline things, but it isn't entirely clear.

That is a sad to hear. I really enjoyed PAR during its run. I'll be interested to see where Ben ends up after this.

Interesting. I heard about the PA report but I never frequented it myself.

It's hard making money from doing the online vidya game news thing.

This was a real shame. One of my favorite places to turn for news and editorials for the past year. But I was glad to see that Ben joined the staff at Polygon, as that is now my go-to gaming site!
