The Nintendo Power magazine is a cool magazine for the game player. It is published 13 times a year, and i believe the cost is around $10.00(special price). This was a gift for the grandson(10) who is into game playing . He has a DS and WII, system and likes the articles on the new games and to look at the colorful pictures. If there are new Nintendo game dates, you will find them in this magazine.
The March edition 2010, has some real good articles. They have listed the 2009 Power awards and give Mario Bros WII the game of the year-good choice. Along with this game, is the DS game, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracts- another good choice. This issue includes the best games for sound/voice, best music, best action, best character, and many other catagories This March issue is especially interesting.
We will say that this is one of the best gaming magazines out there. The publisher and their staff have put alot of time into making this an enoyable reading magazine. The colorful pictures show the graphics of the games., and the reading is clearly understandable for any grade of reader. We will definitely renew this magazine at the end of the year, and if you don"t already subscribe- you should!!
