Following the massive layoffs at 1UP.com, former Editor-in-chief of EGM magazine, James "Milkman" Mielke, details in a recent blog post:
"This is actually not "that" blog, either, but I wanted to give you guys a peek at the final day of EGM's proactive existence. I know it will live on in everyone's memories as the best gaming magazine of the last twenty years, nearly as old as this favorite hobby of ours, but as of now it is no longer in publication or circulation. That said --and to clarify on what I stated in my previous blog-- the final, secret, unpublished issue of EGM will show up here on 1UP shortly in the near future. You will be able to read every hi-res page, ads and all (last time I checked at least) on 1UP, to see the beautiful job that crew did, even with the guillotine hanging over our heads every minute of the day. I'm only posting the cover to it for now, but as you can tell, it's quite an eye-catching, dynamic cover. I hope you enjoy the full, final issue."
The rest of the blog post details the last day of the 30+ journalists who were laid off following 1UP acquisition to UGO.
