Mega64 has won ScrewAttack’s “2008 Gaming’s 1337 Awards” not just once, but TWICE! We got the award for BEST GAMING SHOW and BEST PODCAST! The Gaming’s 1337 awards are essentially the Oscars of the video game industry, and we found out Martin Scorsese has only won one Oscar, so I think it’s safe to say we pretty much SMOKED Scorsese on this one!!marty sux
Watch the awards video here!
No, but in all seriousness, we have to thank you guys big time for this. We got this because all of you voted (apparently pretty often) for us, and even though we’ve been doing this for a while now, it still feels unreal that anybody would care enough about us to do that. We’ve never really had any awards before, so this is pretty exciting to us. I know a lot of people are probably thinking “Wow, Rocco, you’re making a big deal out of this,” but the thing is that we’ve done this show for ourselves and friends for so many years, that we still forget you guys are out there, rooting for us. It’s really special to us, and I don’t feel like we can ever repay you for that.
That being said, we can try. It’s a new year. The stuff we have coming up is going to be a lot of fun, and we hope you enjoy it. A couple new features are coming to the site that I think you will get a kick out of.
We’d also like to end this story on a sad note, and wish the best to all our friends at Electronic Gaming Monthly, the world’s most famous game magazine, which just received the axe today. Not only was it a mag I’ve read since 1st grade, it was a huge publication that really helped legitimize Mega64. Including our early skits on the DVDs inside their magazine for half a year made us actually look like something important, and got our name out there in an era long before Youtube. But above all that, there were some great people working in their halls, and they deserve a safe passage into whatever road they travel next. All the best to the EGM/1up Crew tonight- you guys were, and are, the best.
