This is a sad bit of news, but not entirely unexpected. It’s been more than a decade since I considered a magazine to be a good source of news concerning video games. On top of which, the traditional console and handheld gaming market is increasingly being overshadowed by iPhone/iPad offerings.
I first heard about DigiPen, my alma mater, in an issue of Nintendo Power (the one with the Virtual Boy on the cover). It was subsequently the reason I moved out to Seattle.
It’s sad to see you go Nintendo Power, but thanks for the good times.
