When I heard the news that Nintendo Power Magazine was shutting down, I shouldn’t have been upset… I mean, I don’t even own any Nintendo systems and haven’t opened a magazine since March 2010, when I was lucky enough to be profiled in the magazine.
But, when I decided to write a song about it, It wasn’t going to be a demand for the magazine to come back, but more of a thank you and a proper hip-hop eulogy to a huge part of gaming journalism. When I say I owe Nintendo Power EVERYTHING, I mean it. When I got the Mega Man 2 issue, I studied it, and then studied some more. I even drew my own Mega Man characters, before begging my mom to buy me Mega Man 2. As you know, a few years later, those tunes never left my head, so I made some rap songs about it..and here I am. So Thank You Nintendo Power. Nester Forever.
