GameBanshee - Brother None is Leaving Gamebanshee - to join InXile
Brother None, aka Thomas Beekers, has left the building - ehm - Gamebanshee. In a post
at the Gamebanshee site, he explains why:


You may have heard that I have joined inXile as a line producer, working on the production and community end for both Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera. I'll be doing a lot of day-to-day grind stuff to perfect internal and external communication, get the Torment Kickstarter perfected, work on sorting through the backers of Wasteland 2, and doing public communication and community stuff for both titles. The sad thing of it is that this creates a conflict of interest situation for my work here at GameBanshee that I'm not entirely comfortable with. Even if I avoid writing about anything inXile-related, there's still too great a chance of bias seeping in when I'm looking at other games in the RPG genre. I'd certainly like to keep writing about games, but this kind of colored commentary does not fit the standards GameBanshee sets for itself. For that reason, I'm hanging up the hat as a "video game journalist" (or reviewer, rather).
More information.

Congrats on the new job Brother None!

Brother None February 27th, 2013 03:27

Yeah well. I gotta remind people that the reason I got invited to join GameBanshee in the first place, those six years ago, was this interview with MCA and Colin McComb here on RPGWatch. And now, six years on, I'm working with Colin McComb! Funny how things go.

Thanks guys.

Congrats and best of luck!!!

Drithius February 27th, 2013 07:42

Congratulations, man. Well-deserved.

Warmark February 27th, 2013 08:02

Congrats, working on Torment: Tides of Numenera will be a blast I'm sure, keep us posted with whatever info you can.

guenthar February 27th, 2013 08:20

Congratulations, I just hope it won't keep you from coming around RPGWatch though.

GhanBuriGhan February 27th, 2013 09:23

Good luck, Brother None, certainly exiting games to be involved with! Although I'd rather see you in the design department than as a producer… Bit of a loss for RPG games journalism, no doubt. I hope your outstanding background knowledge will stay with us on the forums at least.

Maylander February 27th, 2013 10:32

I know I'm being cynical here, but my first thought is.. inside source! Yes!

Anyway, congratulations and good luck!

Excellent news. I've always respected your writings and I think you'll help them stay on the straight and narrow path towards crpg greatness.

Pessimeister February 27th, 2013 11:51

Certainly a name in the "video games journalism" industry that I respect. Kudos to you for your hard work and all the best for the future.

go dutchie, You got the dream job !

Acleacius February 27th, 2013 13:54

Gratz and thanks for all the great reviews! :party:

Alrik Fassbauer February 27th, 2013 14:14

I respect your decision, Brother None, I would have acted in a similar way.

I wish you a successful time there ! :thumbsup:

zahratustra February 27th, 2013 15:35

All the best BN and well deserved!

jwmeep February 27th, 2013 16:25

Glad to see that to some people moral integrity is more important than Doritos and Mountain Dew.

Will your new job mean less time on forums like RPGWatch, and RPGCodex? Or more time as "community manager" usually means "a PR guy on the forums making games sound good"?

Alrik Fassbauer February 27th, 2013 16:57

I assume that he already knows these traps.

Foss February 27th, 2013 17:35

Wow, congrats, that sounds amazing :-)

Lemonhead February 27th, 2013 18:22

Congrats! That's huge

screeg February 27th, 2013 19:05

Good for you, BN! Hopefully this won't cut into your cogent contributions here and on the Iron Tower forums.
