Electronic Gaming Monthly Coming Back 45

skulluminati writes "It looks like the late, great, gaming mag EGM, which was canceled earlier this year by publisher Ziff-Davis, will now be making a comeback. Steve Harris, the founder of EGM, has acquired the trademark and publishing rights to the magazine. As a reader of EGM for 19 years (almost since the beginning) it is great to see the brutally honest, independent voice of the gaming community rise from the ashes."

    The new title will be:

    But in the winter time, the electronic lap warming version may have an advantage of its own.

    I paid for a EGM subscription and I'll pay for it again. I like not having to squint at someone's ridiculous font. I like turning pages. I like not having to "Next Page" through fifteen pages of website ad bullshit to read an article that wouldn't even take up one print page. If I'm sitting somewhere for less than 10 minutes I'd rather pull out a magazine than get my laptop out and mess with it.

    I like large pictures, not the ones on websites that you can't see "What is that? Oh great, I can't enlarge the photo". I have disposable income. When I'm done with it I can roll it up and use it to start a fire in my nice brick fireplace, can you start a fire in your nice brick fireplace with a website?

    I don't have to read comments, OH GOD I DON'T HAVE TO SORT THROUGH "FIRST!!!!, YOU SUCK, LINUX RULES, WINDOWS 7 IS THE BESTEST" or any other horseshit.

    I can roll it up and swat my dog on the butt when he's bad. If I'm ever in a knife fight with some highly skilled assassin in Germany I can use it to defeat him. When I'm hot (like with this fucking laptop on my lap) I can use it to fan myself. When I'm cold, I can tear the pages out and stuff them in my clothes. Magazines make great temporary coasters, dustpans, non-sticking thing to breakup pot on, and in going with the above themes...toilet paper.
