Poor 1UP

Postby Eolh » Wed Jan 07, 2009 2:28 am

I don't know how many people here read 1UP, but they were just sold to UGO. The damage was severe.

Seriously, I am pretty pissed off about this.

Pretty pissed off.

I don't know what to do except say that over and over.

I mean, no 1up Yours? What the fuck is the point, then?

I used to watch their podcast. This is pretty bad. maybe they can hook up with Gerstman and make their own company.

I don't think I've ever even been to the UGO website, has anyone?

Heck, I hadn't even heard of them or ever been linked to them before.

Way, way back in the day I think I have. I think they ran the Planet X sites for a long time there.

Holy crap, the Adventures of Hsu and Chan. I'd forgotten all about that strip.
