The Japanese gaming news website Andriasang has announced that it will be ceasing updates to the site.
The incredibly accurate and useful Japanese news site will still be online, but nothing else will be updated, meaning that people can still trawl the archives for whatever information is stored there.
“I’ve decided to take up a new non game-related opportunity that I reckon will keep me super ultra busy, so I will be ceasing daily updates,” said sites founder and primary poster Anoop Gantayat.
“I may do some database-driven stuff and technology tests (look closely, and you may see the site’s backend code base change from PHP to node.js!), but I won’t be doing articles or updates. The site’s archive and comments will remain in place, so you can still consult old content and share it with your children, and one day their children too.
“Thanks for reading all these years, and a special thanks to everyone who registered and posted comments – even the punk asses I banned.”
Andriasang was great at putting out the latest Japanese news and leaks before almost anywhere else, and it was always in perfect English – meaning Google Translate was never needed to decode it into a mess of incomprehensible Engrish.
You’ll be missed Andriasang, even if it is just because we have to find a new source for our Japanese news – especially with TGS coming up.
