Hopefully he stays involved in the fighting game community, he's invaluable.

Ive never seen a more insular and closed off community in video games than that of the fighting variety. Hopeful words but never gonna happen.

Sad best front facing Capcom guy ever. With him being a face recognized he caught a lot of flak seeing that Capcom keeps pissing on all the good will they get with poor business practices I can't really blame anyone for not wanting to continue being employed by them and having to deal with all that everyday.

hope his new path is a good one. good luck mister s-kill.

Wow I am shocked

Posted by Vaancor

This is a real shock for me, Sith is one of the guys in the industry who genuinely loves the product he's working on and is living the dream. Hope whatever he's going for next works out well for him.

Posted by MostlyBearded

I wish the best to Seth. He did a great job helping bring back fighting games from obscurity, and had such an infectious passion for them. Good luck to him.

Don't leave me, Seth Killan. Can you make another Street Fighter game? I'll miss you. Why, Capcom, why?

Let me guess you've made this brilliant inference based on message boards, comment boards, online, and stream chat? Your comment sounds like you've never gone to a local weekly/ranbat. When he says "community", he means the people that actually make an effort to play in person at weeklies/ranbats/etc and tournaments.

If I judged the Giantbomb "community" solely based on article comments, I'd peg about a third of them as being complete idiots who would rather write something negative, then admit they really don't know shit about the topic of discussion.

The man is legitimately one of the best FG commentators out there. I will truly miss his passion for the FGC, his expertise and his top notch commentary. I hope he remains in the scene at least to some extent.

Pretty sad news, first gootecks quits cross counter then spooky says he's cutting back and Ono nearly dies and now Keith Sillian departs sigh there dropping like flies :'(

Good article

Wow. That's kind of weird. Even though I'm not big on SF4 I watched a lot of tournaments online- which he often commentates. That's gonna be weird not seeing/hearing him as a commentator.

Not working for Capcom won't mean he stops commentating for FGC events, if anything, leaving Capcom means he'll commentate more of them.

How far does your knowledge of the FGC actually extend? I've seen words like insular and closed off lazily thrown around in reference to the FGC many times by people who know a lot less than they think they do.

That is sad news to hear. Seth help make Street Fighter relevant again and revitalize the fighting genre. It is not his fault that Capcom went back to it's old business practices. Selling the same game over and over again. Then nickle and dime consumers with their lousy DLC. Maybe he wants to do something different that doesn't involve fighting. Best of luck to him.

Keth Sillian :(

Posted by StarvingGamer

I am so sad.

So very, very sad.

I can't even begin to imagine who Capcom could get to take his place.

It was because he never pronouced Ryu right wasn't it?

Good. I kinda like Killian, but don't like today's Capcom. Hope he lands somewhere where he can make an impact and have his bosses actually listen to him.

Posted by TheUnsavedHero

Bummer. I hope he has fun doing whatever it is he's moving on too.

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

@Brodehouse: Dude, you should totally use this idea for your own benefit,

Posted by clumsyninja1

Good for him...I hate to say but Capcom has been failing for a while. Miss the Breath of Fire, Megaman Legends and Ghouls 'N Ghost's series :-(

Im going to go with unreasonably defensive as well.

Big ups Seth, Hope your new venture is a great one.

Posted by snide

Good luck duder.

Posted by SatelliteOfLove

Ono talks, makes it easy for them to make him leave.
 
Seth leaves, then talks.
 
I don't know how much you know about Japanese society, but Capcom has shot themselves in the foot.

Posted by durden77

Wish him well in whatever he decides. He truly continued to encourage the FGC to become stronger, all while holding up to PR guy side of things.

Posted by FLStyle

@PulledaBrad: So shall I assume that the answer to my question is very little? Disappointing, I thought you were more than a flame-bait troll.

Posted by CounterShock

Bummer, dude is a great guy. Capcom needs all the help they can get.

Posted by GalacticPunt

Aw hell naw.

Anyone wanna take bets on who's next to jump the sinking ship that is Capcom?

Posted by TheSouthernDandy

Didn't know who this dude was till he became the face of Capcom but he made himself a fan. Hope wherever he's going things go well for him.

Posted by Sooty

I'm sure he'll still be showing up at Evo and such, so yay!

Edited by HerbieBug

Can't say I'm surprised. Capcom was using him as a PR middle man to the community, even going so far as having him spout misinformation about their upcoming games to the fans who look to Seth as someone from their own competitive community who they could trust. It was a shitty deal, both for Seth and for Capcom fans.

Hope he goes into game design in some capacity. I think he'd be great at it.

So they fired him or they drove him nuts until he quit. Like all the other talent, anyway. Ono is the only big name they still have, and he has hinted that it won't be for long. CRAPCOM, indeed...

I'm sad that Seth is leaving :(

I hope he is planning to work on fighting games for a different company

Posted by Ulong

I wonder if Seth would still be up to commentate EVO. He obviously has a love for the FGC, and he is a really good commentator.

Posted by AxleBro

+i would leave cashcom too after having my name put on SFxT, i know that isn't why he left but my god i would not like my name associated with such a terrible cash grab from a concept that could have made fighting game history.

Posted by jewunit

Seth has done a great job as the public face for Capcom. As a "special advisor", he has done work outside of the fighting game genre and I think it has improved Capcom's game output to some extent. I will definitely miss seeing his face in interviews for upcoming Capcom games and I am excited to see where he ends up next.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

I just hope he'll keep doing commentary at EVO and such. Also that's a big blow to capcom's fighting games imo, he was the face of fighting games over there and pretty much anyone who's even moderately into the fgc knows him.

Posted by sickVisionz

Maybe he got some fat loots to do commentary full time. That would be awesome.

Posted by Jugg4n4ut

so sad to see him go. wonder what he's gonna do now

Posted by lmenzol

any last words killian?

GO TO HELL!

I dont do requests....

Posted by 1p

I am ashamed to admit this: A few weeks ago, i finally got why they named it the Capcom Unity blog. Like... Capcommunity.

I have been aware of the blog since, what, 2008? Holy shit did i feel dumb.

There you go, that's my own personal "ooooooohhhhhhhh, Phoenix Down!" moment.

Posted by divakchopra

awwww, he's probably gonna form his own company and call it 38 Studios. good luck man
