Die Hard Game Fan
[ Publisher: Die Hard Game Fan | Price: $4.95 | Format: Multi Platform ]
Today we're taking a serious look at the storied history of Die Hard Game Fan. Known for their enthusiastic reviews, Game Fan was fraught with behind-the-scenes drama that included fist fights, missed deadlines and allegations of drug use. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas will change what you think you know about Die Hard Game Fan.



Excerpt: Behind the scenes, this learning process was anything but smooth. The editors routinely butted heads and the magazine was fraught with drama. Many of the allegations seem to center around Dave Halverson, who has been accused of dropping acid before reviewing games, paying hookers at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show and even buying a three foot Sonic the Hedgehog statue instead of paying the staff. All this excess resulted in missed deadlines and a deeply divided staff.

On Tomorrow's Episode: There are only a few days left until the season finale of 29 Magazines of Christmas. The next episode is a secret. I guarantee it will be better than this crap.
