    Nintendo died half a decade ago. I for one was wondering what the fuck these clowns were holding on to.

    I loved Nintendo, but that's their fault with how they decided to handle their products on the markets, for what they brought to the table when it came to the Wii, it seemed like a pretty bad idea, I haven't even touched mines in 2 years after owning it, I've asked other friends about it and they've barely even touched theirs as well, Nintendo only keeps a float from those massive holes in their hull because of its portable gaming product actually made sales since they sold better than Sony's portable product, but since its console fucked up and how they many products went into the market during release it when the shit flipped.

    RIP Nintendo Magazine, may your Nintendo circlejerk writing be remembered by the millions of Nintendo Basement Dwelling Fagboys everywhere.

    Personally, this sucks hardcore. I used to read my friend's mags when I was a kid until I finally subscribed. Even though I haven't gotten an issue in like a year I'll still miss it.

    I have around 10 years worth of those magazines, since my family grew up with Nintendo; I know the value on those will go up 10 cents.

    aah fuck man :( Icon of my childhood gone forever. Still have a nice big box of the mostly worn out issues when I got it as a kid. Tears are to be shed today.

    About damn time. I was a loyal reader of gamepro and EGM back in the day, Both of which were vastly superior to Nintendo Power. How this shitty magazine lasted 2 decades is beyond me.

    Now if only Nintendo goes next. Seriously. I don't want another Mario game I'll never fucking play.

    Give it a decade and you can sell them for probably $50.00 each.

    That's quite sad.
    On that note I will never understand why people complain about Nintendo being for kids, when that is literally what they have always done since they first started as a game company. It's a company for kids and casual gamers.
    Similar to how Sony is mainly for pure hardcore gamers and RPG fanatics and Micro$oft is a mix of mainly hardcore and a tiny demographic of semi-casual gamers.

    Keep crying, faggots. :D
    Nintendo is awesome, and I am somewhat sad that Nintendo Power is dead.
    But, they haven't released anything worth reading in at least a decade, so fuck it.

    Fuck Nintendo and people who play it over the age of 18. I get the nostalgia thing, but I can't comprehend buying new Mario games anymore. Super Mario World was as good as that franchise ever got.

    I had a N64 when I was in preschool. It was cool and all and I have some fond memories of Super Mario 64 and Yoshi's Island, but that doesn't mean I'd pay for another N64 now and buy all of those games.

    Do you reckon people are going to buy an Xbox after they've been phased out and they'll be the new thing amongst youth?

    Super Mario Galaxy was up there too. I won't go as far as say as it was "better" or a bigger leap than Mario 64 was to SMW. But its close. I can't really name a bad Mario-Title game at the moment.

    No.
    Super Mario Galaxy was gay as fuck. Ugh.
    Super Mario 64 was less gay, but still worse than Super Mario World.
