Most of you think that VGPress was created because the Geek started making GGweekly at 1up. But this is not true, the seeds were planted earlier. 

The seed were planted in a topic that GaminGeek started in March 2008.  The title was:

Where do Wii go from here? Yep, still using the puns!

The discussion that started there was just epic. We realized that we could talk more freely with no mods interferring right than and there. The blog post achieved over 100 post's. This was the seed that has grown into the site we have now. The founding members were: Gamingeek, Steel, Foolz, Yoda, Punk, Edge, Vader and me. 

Check out the discussion, it is epic. With talk about how FPS are beneath Retro, Steel being Steel, and Yoda insulting Foolz. Read it, for it is the reason why you are all here!

P.S. Read also the first link I gave. This was the very first GGweekly. I already made a suggestion then to make our own forums. LOL You guys should listen to me more often!

The first I had ever heard of any of this was Yoda consistently trying to hack 1UP more and more each time I talked to him over the period of several weeks, eventually culminating with him "logging into Foolz account" and posting "Foolz Sucks" on all of his posts or something of that nature.

Not that one unless it's been edited back to what I wrote. I checked. May not have checked very well, though. Nyaa And I stand by my statements: MP3 was meh and so TP was good but not great.

Empty words from a man who thinks The Wind Waker is harder than Twilight Princess

It was.They were both far too easy, though. You should probably bear in mind I was far younger when I played TWW which could have contributed to its difficulty.

Say it with me Yodariquo!

"It's like Blade, it has all their strengths, none of their weaknesses!" Say it or pay the price. I'm shaking my fist here, you just can't see it.

You do not know who you are FUCKING with!

Wow, I just read it again. We were awesome there. And I was actually not trolling or making sarcastic comments. Which means that I was not bored (I never get angry on a forum only bored). 

Oh and Foolz if Prime 3 is meh, why did you give it a 8.5?

8.5 means great and not meh, that would be around a 5.0! So hush

@GG

Wow you were skeptical about Disaster then, but you really liked it!
