Electronic Gaming Monthly (often abbreviated to EGM) is an American video game magazine. It is published by Ziff Davis as part of the 1UP Network and releases 12 issues a year (and an occasional extra "13th" issue for the Christmas season, also known as the "Smarch" issue, a reference to an episode of The Simpsons).
EGM concentrates on news regarding current video game consoles . The December 2006 issue introduces new sections, expanded reviews, and focuses more on the acronym of the magazine's title in a redesign. This is the first issue redesign since June 2003. EGM has said that the reason for the design shift is to keep more in line with the site layout of their website, 1up.com.
In 1994, EGM spawned EGM2. EGM2 focused on expanded cheats and tricks (i.e. with maps and guides). The spin-off publication eventually became Expert Gamer, and, finally, to the defunct GameNOW.
