    I just learned about Everdrive tonight!

    I have Everdrive N8 (for Famicom) and the SD2SNES (also previously had the Super Everdrive and the Genesis Everdrive) Love the damn things, wouldn't give them up unless I was facing homelessness lol. Especially the SD2SNES, well worth the $230ish (was on sale) that I got it for on SAG... If anyone needs them, I'll PM a link to some very well put together Everdrive ROM sets...last thing you'll need to download!

    Nintendo Power Scans are Complete

    so...when looking at the archive.org uploads....can't believe they basically took the ones from here and uploaded them :/ (NP#90 for instance, only avalable as CBR file, come here and yep, only CBR as well...) hasn't the 10 year rule passed on up to 2013-2015 now? Glad to see it's still up and running, been a while since I've been on.
  3. 10 years if I remember correctly, so each year you'll see the 12 issues from 10 years ago be allowed to be upped.
  4. https://shop.futureus.com/games/nintendo-power.html?sourcekey=WSNTNLWB If anyone is looking to get the final issue of Nintendo Power, you can order directly from the Future US shop. The difference between the "Subscriber Editon" and "Newsstand Edition" is the Subscriber Edition doesn't have the UPC on the front, so you get a clean cover with no bar code. Shipping for regular mail is $1.50 a copy. No sense overpaying on eBay for these...
  5. with a big red minus sign, what's up with that?

    Nintendo Power magazine to cease publication

    Pretty sad that the only good gaming mag left after NP is gone is Retro Gamer (and it's based out of the UK) Speaking of, if/when NP ceases publication, will the self-imposed year cap on scans be lifted?
  8. I occasionally buy an issue of Retro Gamer (luckily they are being uploaded on UG, so that helps) and Nintendo Power.
  9. Loved the first DKC. This and NBA Jam brings back fond childhood gaming memories All we need now is the next "New Super Mario" game to have SMB3 powerups and BAM!, childhood nostalga complete

    Used games worse than piracy says developer

    No kidding, whatever happened to the Player's Choice series? Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, LoZ Twilight Princess, and a few other games should be $29.99 by now (at least Mario Galaxy with the new one set to drop on Sunday)...
