A few weeks ago we reported that EGM, Electronic Gaming Monthly, will stop it’s magazine circulation and go online only. Then 1up, the parent company of EGM, was bought by UGO. Now even more troubling news.. Through twitters and conversations the word has gotten out that many of the staff at 1up has been let go (see list below). Also, the famous 1up podcast has been cancelled.  I am a pretty big fan of 1up, and still subscribe to EGM. Its saddens me to see this happen to such a good gaming news source.
