ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

September 14, 2009 -

While we were sad to hear that Dennis had chosen to move on, we are grateful for the partnership that was built and the talents which he brought to the organization. In a relatively brief period of time, GamePolitics has become an important resource for the gaming community – and educational tool for disseminating information and keeping gamers aware, and a valuable and timely news publication and blog.

Careful not to step on the toes of our endemic media partners and managing the balance between Church and State – regarding editorial independence – were challenges that Dennis took on with skill and ease. From breaking the ‘Hot Coffee’ scandal, to regular and persistent issues related to Jack Thompson, Dennis was a talented journalist and his contributions to the publication and to the association will be missed.

On behalf of the ECA members and GP readers alike, our heartfelt thanks and sincere best wishes, Dennis.

– Hal Halpin, pres., ECA.

Nice to hear from Hal too. I think that Dennis should be remembered as the gamer reporter who brought us all the political things about videogames straight to our internet.

Well spoken, Hal!

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

I am very curious about who's coming in to take over for Dennis. I'm also wondering if Dennis will show up back here as a regular commentor (stepping down to the level of us peons [insert funny Peon Warcraft quote]).

In any case, nice to see Dennis getting the recognition he deserves. I haven't been on here nearly as long as many of you but it's quickly become one of my favorite internet hangouts.

In related news, Ben just got head editors job at alliance gaming international!

Ill do a story on Dennis when my ODST piece is up, I have been visiting this site for a few years now and I have always respected his journalistic integrity, I will post a link when the story is up on the site

Also I just find republicans funny, they are too "Bond villain stupid" to be properly evil, whereas dems just need to eat more bacon.

I vote president chicken 2102!

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

 Who will you hire to release all Republican Flash games and then make articles on how anything on Obama as for Flash games are evil?

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

McCauley didn't do that so you can be reasonably certain that his replacement will continue the tradition.

No-ones twisting your arm to come here in the first place.

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

Wow... get out, just get out.  We dont need your diatribes here, this isn't the place for it, and I for one am sick of it.

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

I don't worry too much about him. Someone that see bias everywhere s/he goes and has the need to constently defend their point of view, even in places where it's uncalled for, is just making up for how weak their convictions truly are.

He's our very own version of Kanye West.

Yo GoodRobot I know Kanye had some good comments, and i'll let you finish, but DrKefka's troll was the best one this year

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

I expect Andrew Eisen to take over the reins.  Hes been doing it (rather well) for months now.  Still the idea of GP without Dennis just feels wrong. 

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

Thanks for the compliment but no, I will not be the one taking over the editorial reins.

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

But you will, I hope, continue to be Senior Correspondent Andrew Eisen reporting from San Diego?

Re: ECA President Hal Halpin on Dennis McCauley

Far as I know.

Mattsworknamealso, in MGR, on higher levels, button mashing will get you reckt, you have to master parry to even have a prayer05/24/2015 - 8:52pm
MattsworknameI kinda would like a bit more variety in the combat, as it feels a bit to stiff and slow for me. Especailly after other games ive played05/24/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkThere's... no button mashing in DA:I. However, neither is DA:I's combat perfect. I, for one, detest the active talent max limit of 8.05/24/2015 - 8:21pm
MattsworknameDa I combat is fun, a bit stiff but fun, but I still say the best pure combat engine in any game was Metal gear rising.05/24/2015 - 7:15pm
ZippyDSMleeWhen DA gets a control system like DA:O I'll brother to want to paly it, I frown on button mashing RPGs not made by bethseda...05/24/2015 - 5:59pm

Goth_SkunkThe game is 75% sidequests, 25% story. And most of those sidequests are only vaguely related to the main story at all, having very little consequence to the plot at large.05/24/2015 - 1:12pm
Goth_SkunkI'm such a huge BioWare fan that I played through my first playthrough of DA:I without complaint, but on my second time through I certainly took notice of just how much side-quest material there was. It's probably my greatest criticism of the game.05/24/2015 - 1:10pm
ZippyDSMleeI need one of my 70 games to play....mmmmmmmm05/24/2015 - 9:57am

Goth_SkunkPlaying a third and probably final playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that's done, I'll move on to AC: Unity, most likely, then get caught up on A-list games I have yet to play, like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Shadows of Mordor.05/23/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameIf you own a vita and like monster hunter, but dont like the bs filler that goes with it. Try tokiden kiwmai05/23/2015 - 6:11pm
Matthew Wilsonaparently their servers got crushed, but I dont see the game selling well. Nintendo fans tend not to be fans of competitive fps05/23/2015 - 5:48pm
