Patrick Klepek, a man who has been covering video games since he was 16 but somehow got into his first E3 when he was 14, will be joining us as a full-time, San Francisco-based reporter on February 4.
For the last year Patrick has worked as the news editor at 1Up.com, breaking stories about Cory Barlog leaving Sony and “Guitar Hero“-“Rock Band” guitar incompatibility among other things. He’s shown initiative, a love for games and a zeal for reporting. He’s also been growing a fine head of hair that just can’t fit in those 1Up offices anymore. Thankfully, the MTV Multiplayer digs all have high ceilings.
So, we welcome him aboard and hope that you will too when he joins the team in February.
