Nintendo Power is coming to an end...

Recommended Posts

Aww, that's blowdatious. I mean, yeah, internet and all that. But to be honest, the internet is more for the dyslexic, where the mags were for people who cared IMO.

 

It's sad to see it go, but honestly, I had subscriptions on and off for the time it was ot, and it was the best in the 80-90's when they were doinng the 8, 16, and early 32-64 era games. I loved the comics in the old ones, the cards that used to come in them, the full length walktrhoughs of some of the more popular games, the grainy screen shots with the crappy color correction (or lack of it I guess LOL )

 

Of course, ove the years, I've stopped getting magazines of any sort (not even discovery or national geographic) and I blame the internet, to much to do, to little filler, I guess it's made me dyslexic in a way over the hears LOL.

 

I'll have to pick up some of the last mags though, I have over 100 from over the years, it would be cool to have the very last one...maybe I'll run across the randome others over the years and complete my collection sometime.

Hey, bomber...if you want to part with any, let me know. :) I have a spare PS1 console with no hookups for trade if you're interested. Now that Nintendo is going the way of the dodo, I would like to pick some up. I won' be able to do a trade with you until September, however No money until I start earning some up again. lol If you didn't want anything from me, I'm sure I'd do a cash sale. Just something for you to think about! :-D

I subscribed from their first issue (late bloomer so mine said "Free Sample Issue" instead of "Free Poster Inside") to December '91 (Metroid II on cover). At that point I moved on to EGM et al. but I found myself subscribing again in the 2000s for the Zelda Collection for GameCube promotion.

 

The image above is the "renewal reminder cover" from my July/August '89 issue. I thought it was appropriate to post.

Nintendo Power took a down turn for me when the gamecube came out but in the past 2 years i have started reading them again and even subscribed. I like the page that shows what they talked about 5, 10, 20 years ago but makes me feel old. I think the last one will be DEC - 2012.
