Thread: The GameFan history thread

  1. Okay, another story. One day, we were sitting around, minding our own business, making a magazine, and the police showed up wanting to speak with Andrew Cockburn's boss. They wanted to see if this kid they had with them was a good hard working honest citizen, or just some drugged out acid dropping nutjob. So, of course, Halverson told them what a good kid he was... hard working, all that, yadda, yadda. So the police say, allegedly, The Enquirer was making a right turn, but was watching for traffic coming from the left, saw none, and went... right into a female jogger. Well, since Dave vouched for him, they told the jogger she should have known better and Andrew did no wrong since he had no reason to look right when traffic comes from the left, and let him go.

    I'm not sure if this was before or after the authorities came looking for Andrew for obtaining a fake ID under the name "Guile" from Street Fighter 2, and had used it to get a passport and went to Japan on it, but I'm pretty sure it was before spiking the company coffee pot with lsd.

  2. hahahaha christ almighty, these stories just keep getting better and better

  3. Jesus. He got a passport under the name "Guile." No wonder 9/11 happened.

    Didn't you have some werid thing for her, and the knight girl from SS? I recall there being fanshrines and some other nonsense on your webpage back in the day.

  5. Okay, and then there was Kei (Special K). Kei was Japanese. He was the one who translated all the Japanese games and magazines for Dave and co. so they knew what the hell all the little jap bastards were talking about. Dave had a dog. He had two dogs, actually. One was a pug named Puggle and the other was a small white furball named Snowball. Both male. Both spent a lot of time at the offices. Puggle was dumb as stump and thought Snowball was a female and would routinely test that theory. Kei thought this was the best thing ever and would show how he was not afraid to manually take care of Puggle's needs, right in front of whoever was around to see. Kei also confided to whoever happened to be listening that he was not jealous of American men. He explained that American men may have large penises, but they were not able to have very stiff erections because of that. He went on to say that Japanese men had small penises, but enjoyed the luxury of VERY hard erections (illustrated with a shaken fist in the air, arm bent at the elbow). I wasn't sure at the time, but now that I've met more Japanese natives, I'm relieved to find that these aren't just normal Japanese social behaviors and Kei was a little off base. I don't think he was gay.

    Still, Kei was a pretty nice guy and we were friends. We actually printed one or two of his Japanese sections in PS-X. It was sort of a magazine within a magazine, called "Impact Magazine."

    That's so great. RESPECT!!!

    I only met Kei a few times myself, but I knew of the dog thing, and of the running joke of imitating him with this, "Hey doooooood!"

  8. Special K's 1-2 page Japan Now sections were pretty cool.

    Then I got a Jag, took it home, and something seemed... not right.

  9. Another few quick ones... not terribly exciting, but still fun.

    One time the Capcom reps were at the offices, showing us Megaman Legends, and they were giving Nick crap about his SF EX review. In the layout, Nick had taken the character art for Skullo, I think it was, and Sakura, and had positioned them on the page so that it looked like Skullo was copping a feel on Sakura.

    Also, if anybody is familiar with the Japanese movie version of Weather Woman, I took a screenshot of what was basically the US video cover (the main character pulling up her skirt to flash her panties, which looked like nothing more than a swimsuit or something) and included it in with the other screenshots for my review. The next day, I got a call from GF HQ saying that I was in big trouble for trying to put porn into the mag.

    Good, I'm glad you have the balls to admit it. The shidoshi of times past would have lied like a little girl. "@_@ wah? me not know what you are talking about, I only like big black texan women, with guns, and apple pie."
