REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

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!

Yeah I didn't think about that the other day, but damn we're going strong right now.
