Yeah, pretty sure this has been stated on the Giant Bombcast at some pointMy inking was always that multiple EGM editors/reviewers sometimes published under that moniker over the years.
I really miss those days, the magazine was great back then. Nothing else has really came close other than the 1up years when a bunch of them were on there.
Yeah, I think that exact reason was restated by someone on a Giant Bombcast episode a couple months back.
Yes, initially written by one person. Then handed off to various people. Then it was me for a time, John Davison for a time, and usually one person “owned” the voice of the column even if the rumors were from various people/places.
Who was it when Sushi-X moved over to GameNOW? Same deal?
As do I. EGM, and to an extent 1UP, played a major role in my life. It's what pushed me into getting a journalism degree, and I was legitimately crushed when it initially shut down. Only time that's ever happened to me with a publication.
I guess the fact that he was ghost written made me think he was a collective entity. Everyone did a good job by it did slip up that Sushi X was the same guy all the time!
