A date has been announced as to when the Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine will be returning.
If I'm remembering correctly, the magazine was going to be relaunched this year. Obviously, that won't be happening. We'll have to see next year if it really will come back in March.
But if it's that infantile "PS3 getting splattered with tomatoes" EGM? I'll pass that later EGM lost their integrity @ disagree Shoe? Is that you? :D
Shoe took EGM in the right direction. It got rid of multi-reviews, which were pointless in the age of Metacritic, moved their focus to features, and hired some decent designers. I didn't know what the hostility to EGM was from some of those here, given that even at it's close, it had stable circulation figures. But then I saw a few posts referencing the PS3 cover. Yep, it was all down to that single cover, what petty vindictive sh1ts. Let's ignore that it was actually a better magazine with better content. And concentrate on that one cover you didn't like because it made fun of your favourite little console. "That later EGM lost their integrity" - Shut up, you didn't even read it.
LOL at the e-thug! Keep it gangsta :D Egm fell into "ps3" hatefest that was all the rage at the time. Had you been reading then, you'd know that. But you're too hard to bother reading, aren't you? :D
I'm sick of these corporate ass ****s like Gamefaqs, Gamespot, IGN, etc. Bring back real gaming journalism. EGM 4 Life!
I didn't subscribe to EGM when it had its first run (wasn't too big on magazines at the time), but I'm considering it when it comes back in March.
So...people will buy it now? . . Whats changed?
the company went bankrupt, this mag actually sold.
What's changed is that they bailed out with a lot of people's money and canceled their remaining subscription without a refund and supposedly shut down. Now here they are a few months later back open again. Continue my subscription where it left off EGM or GTFO!
i remember back in the day when they had EGM and EGM2. You got it twice a month. Anyone here old school enough to remember that?
I graduated HS in 2000, I used to get EGM in the mail along with a dozen other gaming magazines all through JrHigh and HS. Then college and the internet happened. I still have my entire magazine collection stored at my parent's place. Kinda cool to take a look at the old articles when I visit my parents. EGM had the best posters IMO.
i had a subscription to all the gaming mags back in middle school/high school. My fave was GameFan. I'm 30 now, and all i get now is Game Informer and Playstation Mag.
I graduated in 98. I remember some of the other mags like Nextgen as well. Actually I think Nextgen was named something else first. So was EGM was too, wasn't it? Cant remember been to long. Well I glad to have it back by my "thrown".
EGM started to go down hill in 2006. The articles and there editors started to lose steam. I remember one EGM mag where they only had 32 pages! I mean come on! It felt thinner then a news paper. I might consider getting EGM if they have good articles and good editors.
Nice i liked EGM
My favorite magazine and I cant wait for it to come back! I just loved their creative writing... how they could get funny about something but still keep an overall serious tone.
I used to love EGM can't wait to re-subscribe to them along with GameInformer.
I've been purchasing EGM at retail since 2005. I'm looking forward to this relaunch.
I feel great they switched me over to maxim after it died, like why the hell would i want Maxim... they should have just up and given me a refund, no way I'm subscribing after being treated like that it will probably happen again.
