  • I'm not sure how much Garnett and crew have been reading these stories, but I figure I'll throw mine in the mix.

    A long time ago now, three magical things happened in the same summer (I was between 7th and 8th grade, I think): Penny Arcade called 1UP Yours the most important voice in the games industry, I bought Psychonauts after reading rave reviews, and I went to 1UP.com. I found a newfangled audio recording called a "podcast" where they were talking about Psychonauts (for the Pile of Shame), and I giggled at the name. "1UP Yours."

    Imagine to my surprise (and delight) the four voices swearing, yelling, discussing, and analyzing the games I love and the industry I was beginning to discover. Most other people spent their Friday nights going out to movies or hanging out with friends. I hung out with the Four Horsemen of the games industry.

    I've been listening to Garnett's work ever since - the highs, the lows, the beginnings, the endings, and everything in between. It was Weekend Confirmed that dragged me kicking and screaming through my college years, and affirmed my love of games and the people who make/discuss/love them. As I graduated college and packed my entire life up to move to a job 240 miles away from everyone I love, it was having my weekends confirmed by that same crew that had been there for the past three years that kept me sane, quite a bit of the time.

    As I wish everyone well until the next adventure, let me just say: Garnett, if you need anything] at all, please ask. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who would be more than happy to give a little back to the guy who has done so much for all of us.

    Much love,
