    Default Hardcore Gamer magazine

    Has anyone seen this yet? The new ad for Darkwatch has a quote from them, so i googled it and came up with this:

    http://djbooks.easystorecreator.com/Browse_Item_Details.asp/Item_ID/8/categ_id/2/parent_ids/0,2/Name/Hardcore_Gamer_Magazine__(12_Issues_USA)

    Anyone know of their website? Do they have back issues? When did they start? Anyone see issues in stores?

    Its from the people who made GameFan and Gamer's Republic minus Dave Halverson. I've been watching them since January (or sometime), and have been interested. Hey Wolfie is doing the artwork, that's a good start! They handed out their first issue at e3.

    I had a feeling it involved those guys. Hell, just looking at the cover reminded me of a later day Gamefan cover. Anywho.. thanks for the info Gamereviewgod and co, I'll have to keep an eye open for this.

    I can't wait to get this magazine. I hope it gets good distribution after a few issues. Guess I'll have to subscribe.

    I love Gamefan. LOVED it. I loved Next Generation, too, but GameFan has been and will most likely be my favorite videgame magazine of all time. I need to INVENTORY my magazines, but they are three states away and there are THOUSANDS of the damn things, dupes too.

    I miss GameFan so. I look forward to this read.

    Thanks for indulging my gaming habit when I was young, Dad. You were the best. I miss you. ~David Barnes 1926-2007~

    Am I the only one who almost NEVER reads the letter from the editor page? Generally all it ever seems to be used for it to summarize what I'm about to read in other parts of the magazine or its a poor attempt at humor.

    I wouldn't especially mind HGM dumping the convention of a letter from the editor, but the lack of a proper intro in the inaugural issue is just sloppy. There were several features that could've been edited down to make room, such as the two-page anime spread.

    you know what, I forgot that this was the very first issue that we were speaking of. although I never read them I can understand the importance of one in a new magazine's first issue.
