    As noted around the net today, Halverson intends to re-launch GameFan.

    A lot more buzz seems to be focused on EGM, and it’s not much of a mystery why — EGM is a pretty new concept and it has something of an all-star staff, while the new GameFan is basically more of the same from Halverson, a mag that combines elements of Play and Geek Monthly into something that sounds a bit like — dare I say it? — PiQ. I’m not too optimistic that the market for PiQ is any better now than it was two years ago.

    • is it gallows humor which caused you to link to a site called “games abyss”?

    • Halverson is like a force of nature. Amazing.

    • I’d like to think there’s still some kind of market for this proposed split format, but you’re probably right. Since it’s going to be published under the GameFan banner, I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up leaning pretty heavily towards games.

      Plus, the dual cover/theme isn’t anything new. Complex has been doing that for about seven years now with their split focus on music and style, usually with a musician on one cover and an actress/babe on the other.

      I don’t get why it’s gotta be so damn big though. 12″ x 10″? Yeesh.
