    1. I remember buying my first issue of nintendo power and its petite offerings and read the entire issues front to back and back to front. After reading myvery first issue of nintendo power i went the next day to online and purchased retro monthly magizine with its thick manly spine full of tons of paper made by real people with a passion for video gaming and respect not to sellout and i admitly read the pages of retro gaming mag and thought nintendo power even in its prime nor electronic gaming mothly could touch this bad buy. Igs now 12 years after losing my virginty to retro and retro came on to me by force sorta like a rape of the mind and i never looked back

  1. I have been a subscriber since issue #1. I remember receiving the free Dragon Warrior game. It was my first RPG/JRPG experience and I was hooked. Forever I remain on Team Nester!

  2. It saddens me that Nintendo Power is ending, I mean, the WiiU is about to be released, and I was hoping Nintendo Power would be there as well.

    I’ll miss it a lot, actually, my favorite was the one with the Skyward Sword cover, the one about the E3 2010.

  3. With all due respect, this feels like a slap in the face to all those who supported Nintendo Power. Instead of asking me about my favorite memories, support it.

ALL THERE IPS HAVE SEEN BAD TIMES MORE THAN GOOD LATLEY. TAKE MARIO HE WAS GREAT BUT IF ANY IP NEEDS A BREAK ITS HIM AND ZELDA. METRIOD 3D WHILE GREAT SHOULD HAVE STAYED ATLEAST 2.5 3d! YEAH THEY SHOULD EXPERIMENT BUT HONESTKY METRIOD 3D SHOULD HAVE BEEN WHAT IF STORYS! ANYWAYS NINTENDO IPS HAVE BEEN A JOKE COMPARED TO THIER SNES DAYS! THE ONLY GAMES I LIKE FROM THIS ERA ARE ZELDA MAJORA MASK,WIND WAKER,MARIO GALAXY, AND SMASH BROTHERS. I WOULD SAY LUIGIS MANSION BUT IT FELT TO COMPRESSED FOR AN OPEN ENDED GAME!

      1. I’m fine with the Zelda. A new one every few years is good for me. Plenty of time to play other games in between. Not counting Mario spin offs I think those are all right too, but I don’t like the “New” Super Mario Bros much.

    2. No it isn’t.

      No one buy gaming magazine any more since the internet took over.

      Nintendo make the right call and simply stop spending money on something that was past it sell by date.

      1. No, Nintendo outsourced the publishing to Future but then revoked the license and refused to give it to a different publisher.

  8. So what am I going to do for my Video Game reviews? G4? Crap. Game Informer? Shit. Amazon? Full of haters. IGN? Please. Nintendo Power was the only magazine I trusted for their reviews, and now I’ve got shit to listen too. So I’m either going to waste money buying shit games or I’m going to play titles that I know are good and not stray away from them. This is very disappointing Nintendo, you’ve upset me a lot this year, pushing me towards more of the “Other Guys” than you. Good thing I’ve played you all my life so I’d never leave
