Final issue of EGM to be viewable online

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 That said --and to clarify on what I stated in my previous blog-- the final, secret, unpublished issue of EGM will show up here on 1UP shortly in the near future.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.

I stopped subscribing to EGM a LONG time ago. That magazine started getting worse and worse and then went downhill FAST!

well, it's not like your opinion means anything. You're just another anonymous ******.

I've had a spot in my heart for EGM since I was a kid, it deserves some respect, even though it had it's good times, and it's bad times. I'll be buying the last issue for good old times.

If the final issue of EGM had the Killzone 2 review and it scored perfect scores.. I say ironic because anyone remember that issue EGM did a couple years ago with the cover showing a picture of the PS3 with a tomato being thrown at it and the title was "battle station" and it had a tomato splattered all over the PS3? what irony that would be if the final EGM issue had a perfect killzone 2 review

BTW my heart goes out to those laid off, i was laid off a couple months ago.. so yea
