It's the internet and website like this that are killing gaming magazines. Why pay for your gaming news & reviews when you can get them online for free? That said, I know I'll be picking up the last issue, I've been a reader of theirs for a long time!

Nintendo Direct was pretty much the nail in the coffin for Nintendo Mag. By the time the story is researched, drafted, and printed, its already weeks behind.

Times change, the internet has dealt the killing blow multiple times to magazines. It sucks, but that's just the way it is :(

I remember buying the Nintendo magazines back in 2000 and then I regularly purchased the new look ones from the Gamecube's launch up until about 2004 when I started getting my news from the internet.

It's a shame that the internet has killed off many gaming magazines, but in the end it's cheaper to simply run a website than publish and distribute magazines.

I'm not saddened one bit.

They lost my respect when they published that drivel their writers wrote about games like Senran Kagura and Forbidden Magna.

It feels so sweet to watch people get what they deserve.

Cause, you know... It is nice when people with families have to relocate there jobs and it is right to be happy about it because they have one thing you did not like in their magazine. You are a douche.
