Good for her and I wish her well. I also hope IGN gets an editor much less biased for anything Nintendo to replace her. Drake was a cool gal, but her reviews were near useless for Nintendo games as her fangirl came bleeding through them right to their scores...

Regardless of what you think about her and her reviews, you have to be happy for a person who is able to land their dream job. Good for her.

She was a member of Nintendo Voice Chat, one of the most popular video game podcasts on the Internet, behind IGN's other one, Podcast Beyond.

I actually liked her because of her reviews (much more than Keza Macdonald and Rich George). I wouldn't have gotten Fire Emblem Awakening and Nintendo Land if it wasn't for her. Now to wait until I have enough wad for Animal Crossing: New Leaf...

Audrey Drake...you will be missed...may I wish you best of luck...


P.S. I was incredibly letdown with Rich's terrible review for Kirby's Return to Dream Land >:(

I agree.

Audrey Drake was fun to listen too and seemed nice. But, she was a massive fangirl, no denial.
Her reviews were pretty useless as every game got a 9+ pretty much.

And, the fact that shes got a job at Nintendo kinda makes her reviews even less legit.

It'll be awesome to read her name in the credits of Nintendo games from now on! :D
Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.
