First, here’s the asinine ad I had to put up with in order to make this comment.
We will miss you Jason! You were my favorite writer - especially your love for Suikoden 2 and your Destiny headlines. One hell of a picture and caption for a signoff!
well crap man.
You’ve been a seriously impressive voice on this website for a very long time, and I’ll miss all the news and reviews and fun shit you write here.
I know you’ll still be writing elsewhere, but it won’t have the same irreverence and sheer sass.
Cheers, and thanks for the great content!
First and foremost, congrats and best of luck on the next exciting chapter in your adventure! I will continue to read your work where ever you go as I’ve always found it delightful. But don’t worry, I will continue to read Totilo’s work too. Thank you Jason for all of your hard work and exceptional journalism while at… Read more
Breaking my heart, Jason.
Thanks so much for your amazing work for this outlet, Jason. You’re a major reason of why I tell people who want to understand games in their full social, cultural, economic, and ideological breadth, they should read Kotaku (I even assign your features about the video game industry to my digital media course students).… Read more
Good for you and best of luck, Jason. I started Suikoden II because of you, and you can see that has carried over into my display name on here.

Heartbreaking, all this
Thats sounds like a perfect fit for you. I don’t know if there is a better journalist in video games media right now when it comes to developing sources in, and reporting on, the industry side of things.
I look forward to seeing your future work!
Jason, you’ve always been one of my favorite writers on the site. Your takes on JRPGs are always thoughtful and welcome, even in the cases where our tastes diverge. Your first book was a joy to read each day on my commute, and taught me a lot about the back-end of the industry.
This must be the first time I interact in a public comment section since I was 19 (I am 30 now!), but I just wanted to say I greatly appreciate your work and your contribution at Kotaku will be sorely missed by this reader. I handed out your book to all of my videogame-loving friends and now we’re all waiting for the… Read more
It feels weird to think about, since it was your articles about rpgs back in the 2014-ish era that brought me to the site in the first place. Never listened to Splitscreen, but I’ll definitely check out the new podcast.
