With Nintendo Power sending its last issue and ceasing publication recently, a part of my childhood has left me. I've had lots of good memories with it, and was wondering what everyone else's favorite memory is. Mine personally is reading the 20th anniversary issue. I read that so much it basically just fell apart.

Probably my fondest memory is when I got a free copy of Dragon Warrior for the NES for just renewing my subscription. Also the early player guides that they would send out every so often instead of a normal issue.

I love Nintendo Power and I don't know what motivation I have to go to the mailbox any longer! Being an artist, I mutilated so many of my mags and made poster collage pieces, laminated collage bookmarks, etc. Now, I begin to question my decisions on that. I'm not an obsessive collector who would've shelved and maintained them, so I feel like I immortalized much of my favorite parts of NP by putting them in those art pieces... but still...

My fondest memory was receiving my first issue and realizing how great the magazine was and how much I had been missing out. I will not describe my least favorite memory because it goes against the spirit of this thread.

I remember when they gave us offers from a spring/summer caalogs to get things only Nintendo could offer and not in retailers. Kinda wish rather than discontinuing Nintendo Power they could've at the least gone digital.

My fondest memory was seeing the NP staff finding new ways to beat up Chris Shepperd.

Did anyone ever find out why they hated him so much?

My favorite memory was getting the answers to the Super Mario Bros. 3 card game in an issue. As a little kid it was just awesome to open it up and see all the answers there... you still had to figure out which one your pattern matched, but once you did... it was go time!

I remember a certain issue in which Nintendo Power teased a new game by posting a picture of the Moon, and I was totally convinced it was a new Kid Icarus. I was convinced I saw shapes resembling Pit, Palutena, and Medusa on that moon, but it ended up being a new Castlevania instead. This is a year or two before Uprising, of course.

Didn't they admit there was no hint inside the moon?

That was Chris Slate, who was the Editor in Chief up until the last couple issues when he went over to Mac Life. Shepperd was just a former contributor everyone jokingly hated for unknown reasons.

Yeah they did. Such a hilarious prank.
