Final ‘NINTENDO POWER’ cover is sad and touching throwback. Rest easy, my friend.

Fare thee well, Nintendo Power. Even though I haven’t read you since I sprouted pubes, your loss will be felt in my heart. Or not. Actually, it probably won’t. Ever since I started jerking off to Kitana in my Mortal Kombat II strategy guide, I haven’t really thought about you at all. But uh. We had good times. Didn’t we? Sure.

I Heart Chaos:

So the newest issue of Nintendo Power will be the last… the end of an era. But with the final cover, and the timing of the release of New Super Mario Bros 2 for the Wii U, they were able to create something that’s wonderfully nostalgic and perfect for the final issue. RIP Nintendo Power.
