Trace Vector is live on Greenlight


A while ago I mentioned I had begun work on a new project called Trace Vector. It’s been a couple years since I made that announcement and today I’m happy to announce that Trace Vector is now available for voting on Steam Greenlight!

Goodbye Nintendo Power

The 2012 December issue of Nintendo Power will be the last issue of Nintendo Power. The official Nintendo magazine started up just a couple of months after I was born in 1988 and it has been a part of my gaming life ever since.

My brother (and then later on, myself) have been subscribers to Nintendo Power since about 1990 and receiving Nintendo Power in the mail was always one of the little joys from both of our childhoods. This magazine was part of the entire Nintendo experience and totally completed that picture of our gaming setup. To this day I keep the Nintendo Powers part of the game collection, proudly displaying the magazine spine art to complete pictures that would spans years of issues.

Some issues were so used by us that I’m afraid they have not survived my childhood, but I will never forget the magic us having a Nintendo Power fold out map assist us with the complex labyrinth like worlds. The surprises the magazine provided through the years were always awesome like the manga style comics for Star Fox or the occasional VHS tapes that would sometimes arrive containing game footage and twisted sketches to announce Star Fox 64 and the rumble pak and Donkey Kong Country. I’ll never forget turning the pages and learning about a new game that really got us excited like Megaman X or Super Metroid (still two of the best games ever made).

Nintendo Power really has had a big impact on my childhood and I’m certain it was a partly responsible for inspiring me to create this site. These days I’m still subscribed to Nintendo Power but for better or for worse the internet really has surpasses a lot of the utility roles the magazine used to provide and clearly that role of Nintendo Power (and really the entire print medium in general) has diminished. Nintendo Power always had a unique feeling and character to it that I can only hope can be recreated for future gamers. It was an inclusive experience that literally put a treasure map in your hands to supplement your adventures. Thank you Nintendo Power for the awesome memories.
