One of my favorite podcasts used to be The 1Up Show. It was a great weekly feature that discussed some of the latest offerings and news from the video game world. While I keep up with video games via a few blogs, like Joystiq and Kotaku, watching the video each week was a real treat. The guys who did the show were always interesting, insightful and honest. You know, like Dot Com Pho.
In case you didn’t hear, the 1Up Show was canceled when 1Up was purchased by UGO.com. The production team was laid off and we thought that the 1Up Show was dead. Thankfully, some of the key players got back together to start their own site (Area5.tv) and weekly online show (Co-Op).
For some reason or another, I haven’t spotted Co-Op through the iTunes Podcast directory yet, so I’ve subscribed to their YouTube channel instead. If you are a fan of video games, I recommend that you give these guys a look (if you haven’t done so already). Embedded below is the second episode, which was uploaded yesterday afternoon. New shows come out every Friday. Enjoy!
