Nintendo Power Is A Big Tease!

Recommended Posts

I just want to express my displeasure with Nintendo Power over their recent behavior. I bought the May issue last week because I am looking forward to the New Super Mario Bros game and that issue has some info on the game. Usually at the end of each issue they give a preview of the next issue's cover and content. In the May issue they could not show a cover preview and said that it was going to be "the biggest scoop of the year so far!"

So when I'm reading this I get excited (I'm a sucker for hype) and think to myself: Sweet! Next month is E3! The cover story is going to be about the Revoultion!

I renewed my subscription! I haven't subscribed to Nintendo Power">NP since early 1997 and the last issue I bought was when Ocarina of Time came out.

Then I find out this morning that June's cover story is.....NOT Revolution but..... Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin for DS. How anti-climactic is that! I mean sure it might be a cool game, but did it really warrant all of the secrecy? I guess that it did the trick in that they got more money from me!

I'm not really that disappointed that I subscribed since I'm a huge Nintendo fan (I have never owned a system from Sega, Sony, Microsoft, or anyone else) and I'm loving the DS and excited for the Revolution. I'm just pissed over that TEASE!

They have always been like that. Those great game reviews for some really crappy games, but hey it's nostalgia and that's good enough for me.
