"I started to look for something new to do and started talking to game companies just to see where I might fit and what I could do." Succeeding McNamara as EIC will be Andrew Reiner, himself a 26-year veteran of the magazine, who is being promoted from executive editor. Here are the rest of this week's people on the move...
