    Being that I was just a lowely peon, I didn't get the full story. I know that we had to seriously kiss their ass, and I think we agreed to do some special projects for them in one way or another.

    And when will your Gamefan page be finished?
    Here is what I've got so far. It still isn't finished, and things like the staff listing and links to stuff like the "Jap Bastards" incident haven't been touched yet.

  4. Great read, Shidoshi, kudos. Mind if I spread the word around about the page? Some folks on the Death Valley Driver boards have been wondering about the mag and they'd probably get a kick out of this.

  5. The moma.bible project isn't officially open yet, but sure, go ahead. Just put a note that the page is still a work in progress, so more information will be added to it in the near future.

    According to Ruebus, who worked for us at DoubleJump briefly, the federal marshals actually showed up and searched the place. This was long after I left (which was shortly before the move to Agoura Hills).

    You know, this might then connect to what I thought was the IRS investigation. I know we showed up for work one day, the place was locked down, and we were each given like two minutes to be escorted in to retrieve any personal belongings. That would make sense.

  9. The original magazine was handled by three main people: Dave Halverson, Jay Puryear, and Guy Whose Name I've Forgotten.
    The original was handled by Halverson, Greg Off, Terry Wolfinger, George Weising, Kei Kubuki, Andrew Cockburn, Mas something and Tim Lindquist (me). Jay mostly worked the counter at GameClub until a little while later.

    We printed the first issue (and the catalogs) at my old place of employement, TV Fanfare in Valencia. Jay drove around to the local newstands with the first issue in the back of his pickup truck and basically gave it free to whoever would put it on the racks. By the 2nd issue we had a deal with the people who distributed Low Rider magazine to distribute us nationally -- in liquor stores across the country. We were on our way.

    Thanks for the info. I'm updating as we speak.
