Where the hell did he come from? There was a short while I wasn't in Giantbomb so I never got the story on him coming over here or anything. I've been back for a while now and he is awesome like the rest of the crew but I just got curious now as to how he came about.

Thanks,

I'd never heard about him before he showed up here but he has quite a reputation as a games journalist, I mean they were bragging about hiring him, don't remember the details however

In all seriousness I'm pretty sure he was previously at IGN and was the guy who blew the whistle on the Infinity Ward/Activision debacle. That's why everyone thinks he is the shit.

Jeff was a fan of him for awhile, and made the announcement of his hiring.

G4, but yes.

I'm pretty sure he used to work at 1UP where he used to dress up in tight, short hotpants and pretend to be a Chihuahua.

He was my favourite back in his 1up days, and then he just disappeared for a while... until he popped the fuck up all of a sudden and blew infinity ward INTO LITTLE PIECES.

I'd like him to cover the Activision lawsuit as much as he can.

Do not besmirch his good name by associating Patrick with IGN..

He's been in the 'biz' for years though, I think he was writing articles for EGM when he was like 14 or something. Think he got laid off in the 1upocalypse and then went to G4 for a while and was on Feedback with Adam Sessler. Then from there he went to EGM Now? But yeah he hit it big when he broke the IW and Activision fallout.

And in the PAX Live Show vids he said something like 'he was in a dark place at EGM Now' and 'Giant Bomb saved him' which I'd like to hear more behind the scenes about :P

Well, Patricks hair has always been an underground source for Luchadeer.

Oh how I miss the 1UP show's weirdness...
