The Return of GameFAN Magazine
If you haven't heard yet, GameFan is coming back. Well, actually, it's going to be a double-sided mag: GameFan/MovieFan. Rob Duenas (Art Director), has said that the first issue is done, printed, and shipping to retailers as of last week. He also shared some art from the premiere issue:
Zero has mixed feelings about this, though, to be honest. Back in the day, GameFan was Zero's favorite gaming publication hands down, and its staff almost single-handedly shaped his taste in videogames, which, for the most part, still holds true for him today. Zero even followed Play off and on for a while since it was pretty much the same team, though it never seemed to be as enjoyable as GameFan. And for those of you who aren't aware, Play recently went under and Fusion Publishing went bankrupt, leaving a lot of the staff unpaid and, as some would put it, screwed over once again by Dave. Then out of nowhere, Dave Halverson (Original founder of GameFan, Play, & Gamer's Republic) announced that he's bringing GameFan back. Normally, Zero tries to avoid the behind-the-scenes drama in situations like this; it kind of ruins it. Truth be told, however, it really sucks that these videogame journalists Zero has been following for so long have been dealt a bad hand. Admittedly, though, another part of Zero is like, "Wow, GameFan is coming back".
There's a recent interview on BitMob with Halverson here. He talks a bit about what happened with Play and some on the new GameFan.
So how do you feel about it, NFF? Did anyone else here read the old GameFan? Zero will probably pick up the first issue and see how it is. It may not be the same GameFan without all the old staff, but then again if it's even half as good as the old mag, well, that's better than most of the crap we get in print nowadays. Either way, it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
far east style with the spirit of wild west
the "quote-unquote" code stands the test of
time for the chosen ones to find the best of
noble minds that ever graced the face of
a hemisphere with no fear, fly over

thanks for the heads up. i was wondering what happened to Play; sucks that it's gone
if i get a chance, ill give the new GameFan a read. like you said, it's bound to be better than GameInformer and all the other crap
EGM was alright, too. i hate that it went under last year
