Nintendo Power Magazine to Cease Publication

Recommended Posts

Since there is an already-existing topic regarding Nintendo Power Magazine, and in order not to fragment the discussion on the magazine's final survey, I will merge this topic into the already-existing topic.

For a sad and unknown reason, I never read this magazine. I never really read any magazines, actually. Since this is their last survey, however, I will try filling in some answers for them!

So again since I'm a forgetful old fart, when is the last issue's release date? and how much does a normal issue go for at a store/magazine stand now a days?

Probably late November since it's the Dec. issue, and around five bucks.

I... never subscribed to magazines. The only one I was ever "subscribed" to was GameInformer, and that's only because I got 10 issues for signing up for a Gamestop membership card (2-3 times, mind you).

Don't care about comics, don't care about magazines. Never have, really. I get all my info online. Not surprising; magazines and newspapers both are dying. Comics I don't expect to die out for a long time, but newspapers/magazines, I say, good riddance. I only care about newspapers for the coupons...

EDIT: Okay, so, maybe I was a tad bit harsh. Still, most magazines and newspapers from what I've seen are crap. There's very little useful ones out there.

...I'll be sure to tell you that your fun hobbies are worthless too? And that all the heart and soul put into it are better off gone?

I mean sure, you're allowed to hate magazines. It's just, this is like waltzing in to a funeral and telling everybody that you don't know/care about the deceased, and then saying that the world is better off without them anyways. It might be true in some cases, but who does that?

I hope that we'll still be able to buy the final issue online from their website. I can't find any bookstores that stock any of their issues now, so I'd really have no other way besides ebay and Amazon. I also still need to buy the Sonic backissues, so it'd make it most convenient.

Still very emotional to see the magazine go though. The children will not get it when AVGN talks about Nintendo Power games! ;-;

I suggest waiting until half of the month passes at least

I've never even owned one single issue in my life (although it helps I've read my fair share of NP magazines) and I want this.

Also, I saw a comment that suggested that Nintendo should continue Nintendo Power on the Wii U/3DS as a digital subscription service. Brilliant idea IMO.
