Nintendo Power's Final Cover 79

skade88 writes "Ars Technica has a review of the last-ever issue of Nintendo Power. It's bittersweet seeing a part of my childhood ending." Being in print for 25 years means it's got most single-platform computer magazines beat.

    I'm kind of surprised that Nintendo is flat-out killing the Nintendo Power brand instead of just moving it online. I mean, it's not like video game journalism is dead. It's just moved entirely online. (Are there any print video game magazines left? That are still printing physical copies, that is. I'm not aware of any.)

    I would have thought there'd still be demand for a Nintendo Power, just not in print form. I guess not? Or was there a website, that's since been replaced with the current information about going out of print?

    It's kind of sad to see it go, but I haven't subscribed since the mid 90s, I guess. Still, it's a nice cover and a nice tribute to their first issue.

    I have a feeling you have never read Nintendo Power.

May Euell Gibbons eat your only copy of the manual!
