Steve Harris, Electronic Gaming Monthly's founder and once again owner after re-acquiring its publishing rights earlier this year, revealed the returning magazine's cover for its planned December 2009 issue, which features Mass Effect 2's Commander Shepard (in fact, it's a variation of the game's boxart).

Issue #238, EGM's first since former owner Ziff Davis suspended publishing in January 2009 following its sale of the 1UP Network to UGO/Hearst, promises a collection of previews for 2010 games such as Super Mario Galaxy 2, Bioshock 2, Halo Reach, and many others.

The cover also brings back the Electronic Gaming Monthly logo that was replaced in early 2007 with the shorter EGM, though this logo has a slight change in its stripe.
