Picture related: an original portrait of Link made from torn up Nintendo Power magazines by artist Chris Lange that I won in a contest.

Nintendo Power magazine, the monthly publication that was at one time (the 90s') the latest and greatest source for Nintendo news and tips, is calling it quits after 24 years, apparently being unable to compete with "the internets". Not gonna lie, I thought they stopped printing that thing a decade ago. "Yay, no more dying in vain!" I imagine a forest full of trees yelling in unison.

Thanks to ChaosLex, Penny, robert c, LupusYonderboy, Aurora Boredinclasses (nice) and jeffrey, who all miss that $4/minute Nintendo tip-line you could call to get help beating Zelda.
