NY Comic Con: 1up’s Garnett Lee on NYCC and 2009

logo-1updotcomWhen news hit that 1up’s Garnett Lee was going to be in New York for Comic Con, I admittedly lost my cool for a bit. Not only was 1up and its now cancelled publication EGM my favorite outlet for gaming news, it was also home to some of my favorite podcasts of all time. Podcasts like 1up Yours and 1upFM were great weekly “radio” shows that really understood the gaming world, which makes sense, since EGM was nearing its 20th anniversary and they’d covered a couple generations worth of gaming technology.

I got to meet up with Lee at NYC’s Stitch Bar on West 37th Street. I likened the fan reaction to that of either him being the prettiest girl in the bar or the man of the hour. Every dude there was buying this guy drinks and being the humble guy that he is, Lee was taken aback by the outpouring of appreciation. Luckily, I got to “interview” him on the spot. Hit the jump for the audio and now one of my most prized pictures.

Needless to say, this was the perfect ending to an amazing weekend.
