The first major new venture of the “new era” 1UP has launched today: The revamped Daily 1UPdate, which aspires to combine the best parts of the former Daily 1UPdate as well as the 1UP Show into something interesting and organic but less resource-intensive. I’d love to be able to take the credit for this, but as with the best things in life it’s really the product of many people’s hard work. None more so than our video producer, Dave Toole, who is doing what can only be termed a redonkulous amount of work to put together several minutes of original video content daily while still maintaining his exacting standards of quality. He’s a madman, but we have harnessed his madness for our mutual benefit.
Please give it a watch and let us know what you think, won’t you?
In equally exciting news, I’ve finally made it to the fifth stratum of Etrian Odyssey II. I managed to beat the fourth stratum boss on my first attempt, even; I’d like to attribute this victory to the team’s awesome gunner, but looking at the boss guide on GameFAQs I see my victory came primarily because my party members are about ten levels higher than they need to be. Well, whoops. I guess all that mucking around in the labyrinth wasn’t entirely necessary after all.
