Default Sad industry news: UGO buys 1up.com, axes EGM and staff.

http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3172156

Reports from GAF and elsewhere say that the entirety of gamevideos.com is now gone, Andrew 'Skip' Pfister confirmed the podcasts and The 1up Show are also done.

What a shame

Scratch that, the last issue had Wolverine on the cover and IS indeed the last EGM ever.

Does this affect the 1up Show and podcasts?

Those are my favorites.
