Some sort of HOST. A man of questions, not of answers. Dan comes from that part of Michigan where its cold. In video games, he finds himself lost in a world of shooters just looking for a platform. This man has a relationship with his Snes that (after 24 years) is probably stronger than any relationships you currently have with any member of your immediate family. Maybe you should go make a call.
