OOPS!

- When I did a ctrl + f and searched for 1UP it didn't catch the thread, or maybe it went up while I was doing this one I dunno.
  • The Official 1UP Podcast Preservation Society
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=348035

This thread is dedicated to any and all information on the shows/podcasts. Also, I will try to update this with links to the people that are no longer with (and even those that are still currently with) 1UP via Twitters, blogs, and whatnot.

  • DOWNLOAD THEM ALL FROM PODCASTS.1UP.COM

From GAF user SnowWolf:

Torrents will be useful once 1up.com actually starts pulling the podcasts off their servers. In the meantime, I highly suggest just using DownThemAll Firefox plugin and grabbing the mp3s directly off the 1up pages. I'm serious, you can download their entire catalog with just a couple clicks, plus it's much faster than using torrents. I got all of 1upYours, Retronauts, and GFW Radio in about 3-4 hours. This way you won't have to wait forever for seeders.

If you're going to be downloading mass MP3 files and want an easier way to rename them and/or edit the tags on them check out this program as well: MP3 Tag Tools (Any Mac Programs?!)​

Links to Archived Shows/Podcasts!

I updated the RSS feed posted at the bottom of the OP to aggregate pretty much every Twitter and blog feed listed on the front page. I'll keep watching for newcomers and add them as needed.
  • RSS Feed(s)
...quite a few people : HERE




*just a heads up* I have class and work during the day, and will update when I am able. If you want to make sure your update is not missed, please send me a PM letting me know about it and/or even linking to it. Please feel free to link (not to anything personal or you think they wouldn't want) to people's Twitters and blogs. I can only look them up so fast, and any help is appreciated!

I have thought about posting who still is and isn't with 1UP due to the acquisition, but I'm deciding against it and instead can let you figure it out from the previously provided information...
... because it makes me sad to see the list :(

I saw that there was a thread for the podcasts, but I'm glad that one is going up for everything. I really don't want to lose all of that greatness.

Really? I didn't see it. I guess I'll keep this one going unless someone tells me otherwise.

Great op, needs a good GAF made header.

Will keep checking in here for new twitters, blogs, sites, GAF account names, podcasts and new work places from the guys.

Spent far to long getting to know their opinions and personalities to just drop them as a valuable part of my trusted gaming information sources.

Thanks! I'm hesitant to post people's GAF names as they could get spammed or harassed and whatnot. If people really want they could hunt them down
STALKERS! :p
If someone does want their name known then feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll add it to the OP though!

So who's going to be the first to throw together all the 1UP Show files? OP from the other thread said that they were almost done with 1UP Yours. We still have a lot to go people so keep the information rolling in!

I will be seeding these too. I should have some old 1up yours that I can post after work.

Just checked, I got some from 2006 and 2007 including the epic E3 poolside podcast and old EGM live episodes. Will post after work.

How about posting the GAF username for each employee (assuming they are on GAF and they don't mind if the rest of GAF knows who they are...)

Some of the ones I can think of:

Shawn - FartOfWar
Skip - skip
Anthony - ChuffMoney (or something like that)

I mentioned before I have no problem with it, I suppose I'll just PM them and see if they have any problems with it.

Not really lol, I think I'll try to save the podcast webpages with the descriptions and cross reference from that.

Not sure if you guys already have these links but, here's 2 posts from the long ass thread

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=14272552&postcount=2321

Has a bunch of Twitter/ RSS info for much of the ex-EGM/1-Up staff

Still think that they should try & contact Leo Laporte. Maybe have a "This Week in Gaming" podcast? :D
Thanks, I completely forgot about those RSS feeds that were made!

1up show theme

zshare/mediafire or torrent link plz!
I'll look through the thread (unless someone else wants to), and try to find the 1UP Show theme as there were more than one posted I think. I remember downloading the orchestra version from mediafire.

Is there an easy way to monitor all those Twitter feeds like on one page?

Or should I just signup for Twitter to be able to do that?

If you sign up and follow them all you'll see all their posts arranged nicely on your home page.

Follow up by ex-GameVideos intern Peter Brown at Stick of Joy: http://www.*******.com/2009/01/06/assessing-the-damage-at-1up/4#comments

You can add me to the list of those fired. GameVideos Intern here...

There is no doubt that this is a sad day for many people (my friends) and for gaming journalism in general.

I know my buddies will continue to succeed in the future and prove how incompetent UGO is. They lied to our faces a month ago, and have tarnished one of the best websites on the internet. 1UP still retains a good group of guys, (Sharkey, Jeremy Parish, Ray Barnholt, Mike Nelson, Alice Liang, Scooter, and the remnants from GameVideos, David, Rich and Nelson. That being said, it will be up to them to decide what will happen to 1UP. UGO has shot themselves in the foot quite early into their reign and I know more than a few of those that remain are pissed, confused, and upset over the loss of their coworkers and the assault on the website they pour love into on a daily basis.
