EGM To Be Resurrected?

Recently deceased video game magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly is apparently not as dead as we thought. According to a press release from,

Steve Harris, founder of “Electronic Gaming Monthly” magazine, announced today that he has entered into an agreement with Ziff Davis Media to re-acquire certain assets, including trademarks and publishing rights, with plans to re-launch EGM in the second half of 2009.
So, how many times have things we've loved left and then come back shittier than ever? Let's see...Bomberman: Act Zero, post-Genesis Sonic games, Devil May Cry 2, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link. I could go on and on, but will end it there. Hopefully the new EGM will bring back what we loved about them, while adding in some new sections to breath some life into the mag. Good luck!

Thanks to former EGM/1UP employee Ryan O'Donnell for his tweet to inform all who follow him.
