    Nintendo Power Final Issue

    As I'm sure a lot of you know by now Nintendo Power (which has been in print since July 1988) has come to an end. The final issue is now available on news stands and, as a nice touch, has a nostalgic cover. I've grown up reading this magazine so it sucks to see it go but with the increase in Internet news and gaming sites like IGN and G4 (which is also ending soon) it's not hard to imagine why this great old magazine is ending. Anyway (I know there are probably dozens of scans of this online already) here is a snap shot of the final issue cover:

    I know

    I have to buy a second issue so I have 1 to collect and 1 to read lol.
    It has a poster with old NP covers (maybe all of them?) on it.

    Edit: Also, I tried posting in the main news section first but apparently I'm not allowed lol.

    cheapest one on ebay now.

    I found the $22.00 one :P

    I think it has all 285 issue covers.
    The cool thing is that if you compare the first and last issue cover they are the same just updated.

    I know, I love that. It's a fitting cover for the last issue...the store I work at still has a few copies so I'll be getting another after work

    Nintendo power was unequivocally shit except for the occasional map. Until this announcement I assumed it died a graceful death years ago.

    It wasn't shit, it was just biased which is to be expected. It was published solely for Nintendo gamers. But they were never disrespectful to other gaming companies (so far as I can recall anyway).

    EGM had better Nintendo insider info than the company's own mag.

    EDIT: By the way, wasn't Sega's magazine free? It was only quarterly or something, but at least they weren't charging you for what is essentially one big ad.
