    Andriasang, an English-language Japanese game news site that is often the first to translate Japan's Famitsu industry magazine into English, will no longer be updating, its editor and writer Anoop Gantayat announced today on the site.

    That's kinda sad. Hopefully there are other sites to give us English language coverage of Japanese news.

    Sad to see a good site go down, but at least this is a good reason compared to the possible copyright related closings. Good luck for the admins!

    With all the time and effort he put into this site, I'm sure he just felt lost in translation.

    I think that he may just be a temporally stopping until he fixed the thing on the site back-end that is needed and he doesn't know how long that will take so he is going to stop updating until he gets the stuff done with the site.

    There are tons of gaming websites out there. I'm sure someone else either has or will start a site that will be similar to Andriasang.

    Siliconera.com is a pretty good site for info. Often I see many of the same articles on Andriasang and Siliconera.

    I was gonna say you can just use Silconera for your Japanese gaming news.

    But I removed Silconera from my RSS a while ago because all the Japanese gaming news is shit.
