Seriously this site outlasted Gamepro 1 up and Gamespy thats pretty amazing gr forever
I named the 1 up network.
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!
Yeah I didn't think about that the other day, but damn we're going strong right now.
Keep fighting the good fight, sirs. And if you fall, the PEOPLE will speak, Optimus_Crime-style.
