“You have to love what XSEED is doing with the in-game digital magazine GameFan: instead of filling the issues with fake editors, they’ve gone out and enlisted real staff members from a variety of U.S. gaming media, including two guys named Dave Halverson and Nick Des Barres.” - Play preview

I knew that the game magazine within Retro Game Challenge was full of industry spoofs, but I had no idea that actual game magazine editors had penned the articles. It’s the little extra steps like this that get me even more excited for a game.
