Anthony Burch leaves Destructoid, bends knee for game journo Ashley Davis

17189-124382-screencapture1png-620x (1) In one fell swoop, Destructoid curmudgeon Anthony Burch bid farewell to his readers and proposed to fellow D-toider Ashley Davis.

Burch was Destructoid’s in-house  snob. He waded through the burgeoning discourse praising and damning games, grand inquisitor of the Church of Games As Art. He wore a skinny tie and spoke like a jaded undergrad. And though I poke fun, he was very good at what he did.

Burch heads to Gearbox Software, the folks behind such twisted brilliance as Borderlands. I have no doubt he’ll prosper on their payroll. Let’s just hope they let him continue Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin?

And yes, I’m posting this primarily because I thought the proposal was adorable.
