Revealed now for the first time ever, here are the actual faces of the mysterious voices behind the 1UP FM Podcast. How did I get a hold of this amazing photo? Believe it or not, I took it myself, when I was recently on the show.
It wasn’t an easy shot to get. As soon as I walked in the doors of the 1up studios, I was thoroughly and savagely frisked, which I wouldn’t have minded, except that they had the nerve to confiscate my camera. Jokes on you, 1up! MustacheCam™ to the rescue.
So, these guys have been playing through Psychonauts for a few weeks now, and if you haven’t been listening you really should. It’s a good show, and the “Backlog” segments on Psychonauts are really interesting. After a game comes out, you are immediately exposed to everything from glowing reviews to scathing forum posts, or vice versa. But this is something completely different. It’s a group of smart people who love games talking about a shared gaming experience in an honest and thoughtful way. I want to hire these guys to talk about every game we make. (That should be easy now, since publishing this photo will probably cause them to lose their jobs.)
Anyway, you should check out all the shows. Listen to every second of them, of course, because every second is excellent, but if you want to cheat and skip ahead to the Psychonauts stuff, here is your handy cheating guide:
7/28 - 1:09:28
8/04 - 1:16:15
8/11 - 1:22:39
8/18 - 1:15:15
8/25 - 1:14:00
(Don’t listen to that last one unless you want to hear my squeaky voice.)
