* Looking back: Nintendo Power Magazine

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
X-Entertainment have some looks back at the first issue of Nintendo Power those many years ago.

You don't forget Glass Joe and that weird statue of Kraid that I could never seem to break down. We were all Nintendo junkies, and for a time, there wasn't anything more important than Contra's super code or imitating the face Great Tiger makes after he gets all dizzy and shit. Nintendo Power was a godsend to us kids. Unlike today's typical gaming mags, this one was written specifically for people with zero education and a likely inkling to jump into leaf piles. Aside from the occasional Weekly Reader, Nintendo Power was one of the only works of literature many of us could proudly claim to have read cover-to-cover. What a lot of people don't realize is that Nintendo was putting out little magazines for a long while before slapping on the 'Power' moniker and raking in zillions of subscribers. The first NES mag? The Nintendo Fun Club.
