    I named the 1 up network.
    it's true.

    I ran into Crispin Boyer, one of the main EGM review crew dudes and surely editor in chief at some time, on Tetris Worlds on the original Xbox Live. He took a liking to my username: 1 Up. (actually, it was x 1Up x, because you couldn't start an xbox live gamertag with a number)

    He says, "Hmmm, 1 Up. That's a good name."

    Literally 2 weeks later, 1 Up is everywhere. On clothes sold at Hot Topic, and part of EGM's 1 Up network, a Ziff Davis publishing venture.

    I have no proof. I do have old screen shots of me playing halo pc as 1 up, but that's not really proof.

    I was a fan, so it was cool.

    I had a part in that whole "1up" thing.

    he said the review crew played Tetris Worlds online, so I thought I'd maybe run into him, Dan "Shoe" Hsu, or one of the other guys if I played more Tetris Worlds, and then I did.

    If you ever wore a tshirt with that green 1up mushroom, first off HAHAHAH, and second, you're welcome!
