A few weeks ago on a CAGCast (I want to say it was circa E3), you mentioned something about a person you met (or talked to, at least) that gave you a lot of valuable info and dirt about the gaming industry and its 'media'. You asked the person whose name I'm forgetting if an unnamed person in the gaming media was a "dick"*, and he apparently verified this. Was this "dick" Brian Crecente? Because no lie, that's who I thought of first and foremost, for whatever reason. Maybe it's just his shit-eating grin.
No, it was not.
I've met Brian many times and even took both Kotaku Brians to Sumo during last year's TGS. Crecente always been very nice to me and has always stopped to shoot the shit with me when I've run into him at various gaming events. I never got the impression that he felt he was "too important" to talk to me or anything like that.

* Of course, what happens when someone wants to play a little prank on CAG and sends in documentation of the next price drop for the 360 or PS3? Clearly, it's easy to pull a fast one over on a Web site.
In the 5+ years of running CAG, I've never posted a rumor to the front page that didn't turn out to be true. I'm very careful about that.
