The Last Nintendo Power Subscriber

Nintendo recently announced they were discontinuing gaming magazine Nintendo Power after a 24 year run. Once our moment of sad nostalgia at the news passed we were OK, but not everyone has handled the news so calmly.

    @Jon… That T-Shirt was the only thing in the comic that made me laugh. Glad I wasn’t the only one to spot it.

    SIGH………………….I think I still have the first couple of issues put away somewhere, can’t believe it’s been that long ago!!! I remember when Zelda (Legend of) and Zelda 2 was out I HAD to have those first couple of issues to figure out the game and if I remember right I even called the gamer hot line to get clues on how to finish the game. The good old days!!!!

    I still have my son’s old Nintendo 64. I just may go play a little Ocarina Of Time…or maybe a little tennis with Princess Peach?

    I wonder if this is going to cause a mass weight loss in our youth and other persons of sedimentary lifestyle.

    I’m trying to look at this as a “glass half full” kind of thing. And for that, at least there’s the Wii and those creepy eyeball apps for PS3/XBox that get you up dancing for about a minute. But then I see HTPC kind of stuff that allows us to watch movies and stuff face. HTPCs don’t even have a person burning calories by twiddling their thumbs! So I’m not sure how I feel about a magazine devoted to thumb twiddlers.
