Breaking: 1UP acquired by UGO, EGM is officially no more photo
Breaking: 1UP acquired by UGO, EGM is officially no more
by Jordan Devore

Yes, folks, the rumblings were true: 1UP has been sold by Ziff Davis to UGO Entertainment and its parent company, Hearst Corporation, including 1UP's associated Web sites GameVideos, MyCheats, and GameTab.

Sadly, the acquisition will undoubtedly result in many layoffs, which is something we never want to see in this or any industry. Further adding to the sad news, Electronic Gaming Monthly has made like Batman's parents and will no longer be in print as of the current January issue.

All jokes aside, EGM was one of the last great gaming magazines, and while it's not shocking to see the publication come to an end, it's still an unpleasant sight to witness.

As for the 1UP acquisition business, we're already getting word on some of the casualties, namely the 1UP Show. I have always been a supporter of the show and I can safely say that it will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to all of those who are now out of a job.

Famitsu: New glimpse of No More Heroes photo
Famitsu: New glimpse of No More Heroes
by Papa Niero

While we sit idle waiting 48 hours to see what lies behind the curtain of the new No More Heroes site, Famitsu unzips the pants of the protagonist and offers up a few more photos of the game.  The scan was posted by a French Web site which our own Blindside thankfully translated for us Eau De Toilette impared:

You are Travis, number 10 assassin. In the game you go around to kill the other 9 so you can be number 1. Take missions to get better weapons and more money and other things. Wiimote controls weapon and nunchuck moves Travis on foot and vehicle.

This game is totally punk. I'm a huge fan of cell shaded games -- it reminds me of being excited about older titles like Cool Cool Toon and Jet Set Radio on the Dreamcast.  Killer 7 would have been totally forgetable if it wasn't for the amazing attention to art direction, so I'm also hoping that there's a little more under the hood here than clever shaders. July's new scan and an archive of additional back issue scans are posted in the gallery below:
