Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM), one of the most reputable and most popular magazines in the games industry, published its first issue since the magazine went under about a year ago. The verdict is – EGM is back and better than ever.
It's funny that when I first started reading it Mortal Kombat was on the cover...the original MK.
...the mags to read when I was a youngster. I'm glad EGM is back :) Going to go ahead and get me a subscription.
I graduated from Nintendo Power to EGM, not sure why I lost interest in Nintendo Power. It's still an entertaining magazine, I guess I just lost interest in Nintendo in general. Nintendo Power did have a pretty strong bias too.
yes they were the mags to read...back then. But saying EGM was one of the most reputable is an outright lie. Not from the time Dan Hsu took over, through objective game journalism out the door and then ran the mag into the ground before jumping from the train mere months before impact. If anything, EGM has a great deal to prove.
Yeah Nintendo Power had a pretty strong bias back in the day, but it's not too bad anymore. After all, they didn't even give Mario Galaxy 2 a perfect score.
well, until I started to get into a thing called the internet;)
I thought the exact same thing, it was rather hilarious. When I saw it on the news stand I had to do a double take, I almost didn't believe that it sitting there. I secretly believed the plans to remake the magazine wouldn't end up working out.
Awesome, my review is long over due. 8800gtx
Don't forget to add GameFan as a great nostalgic Mag.
hmm when are the truthly back? i keep hearing they back but i keep seeing articles they coming back again are they coming back and leaving then coming back?
They are back, check your local news stand. I was just as surprised as you probably are. I've heard for months about the return but haven't seen anything come from it until today. You won't be disappointed, some of the best stuff I've read in months.
o.k this guy better get his news right the rebirth issue was the street fighter issue.. is was sub titled the zombie issue. http://cdn4.mattters.com/ph...
I'm glad they are back but who buys VG magazines these days.
this was the only magazine i subscribed to back in the early 2000s
EGM was the first gaming magazine I ever subscribed to. I started reading it back in 1989 or so while I was working in a grocery store. I subscribed through the 1990's. I think I'll pick it up if I can find it on the newsstand. The nostalgia factor will be high.
Is this really the first issue? Cause i've been trying to find EGM in newsstands (and i live in NYC where the place is infested with them). And i still can't find the darn thing.
Its about time, i was saddended for the industry when this magazine went the way of the dino. Yay for its return. A magazine worth reading again xD
