Picked up the new GameFan and it looks like improvements over the first issue are already moving in. I haven't done a side-by-side but this one definitely looks like it has more content and the nerdy-niche quotient is even higher. There are write-ups on Deathsmiles and Monster Hunter Tri both considered hardcore enough to probably get trashed in the mainstream reviews (I know DS did at IGN), but loved to death by this magazine.
They love the big stuff like Super Mario Galaxy 2, yeah, but they give the same space to Cave Story.
Putting Sin and Punishment's decidely non-macho protagonists on the front cover pretty much tells you all you need to know... although S&P is a decidedly over-the-top crazy shootfest. American gamer tastes (FPS and sports games) are NOT being catered to.
Next EGM arrives soon too I hope.
