I'm still suscribed. Oh well, it's just 34 bucks minus the issues I already got LOL

My bet is that most of the Xbox fanboys at 1up will end up at either Gamespot, Giant Bomb or Gametrailers (unless Edge and Eurogamer are willing to import them) or some other Xbox branded magazine, while the Sony fanboys (Shane Bettenhausen and...?) will be hired by either Game Informer, GamePro or some PlayStation branded magazine. The unbiased journalists (were there any?) could/should go to IGN. I don't think there are Nintendo fanboys in journalism except Matt Cassamassina, he should leave IGN and work with Nintendo Power (he'd be better off anyway).

And all the PS3 fanboys will end up here - since this seems to be where they conjugate mostly.

solidjun53396d ago

no, all the MS fanboys from there will certainly conjugate here and we'll have mutliple POGs, MARTs and the rest of those crew.

see, I can say ridiculous things too.

HEY - come up with your own material. Don't steal mine and then regurgitate it back with no delivery.

Just so you know, the EGM staff knew they were going to get laid off and they finished one last glorious issue. It's due out soon, and may be a tear jerker.

You have been warned...

I can't even count how many EGM's I've bought from the stands..It's been routine for years and years..but I ain't going to's kind of Karma..for all of those games that unjustly fell to the EGM review sword..other than a few must buy mags..Internet killed print..go figure..I just bought the last EGM the other day..
