Electronic Gaming Monthly... Is it DEAD? in Magazine Talk Posted April 30, 2015 My EGM Spring 2015 issue arrived today as well. Interesting to note that this a different cover than the one posted by E-day. It also reads, "Special Issue #04 and Display Until 7/15/2015" on the cover. I don't think we have gotten a regular EGM issue for a long time. I had to check the cover listings on here, but it looks like the last regular issue of EGM was Summer 2014, so essentially a full year ago - that's hard to believe. But I suppose they are correct with special issue 004, in that there was also the Winter 2015 Buyers Guide, and the Xbox One/PS4 Buyers Guides.
