Picked up a couple copies tonight from Walmart. I had issues 1-85 which I sold off with a bunch of comics dirt cheap years ago and I've regretted it ever since. Figured I'd buy and hang onto the final one this time around.

I was subscribed, I still haven't swallowed the cancellation, I have been a subscriber since issue 6.

out of all of issues they've printed, I might have bought one around the release of the gamecube, so no I will not be buying the last issue.

I'll get two. One to read through, and one to keep unspoiled

Mine finally came in the mail. I was worried because I thought maybe my subscription ran out right before the final issue. That type of thing drives the collector in me bonkers.

I only just got issue 284 today due to mail backup from the hurricane partially destroying our town. I'm hoping the final one comes soon.

It worked out nice because my subscription expires the 1st of January so I just made the cutoff. Plus next month the Hyrule Historia comes out so that's something.

Still... I've been subscribed since issue 98. I was 10. Hard to believe it's been 15 and a half years.

The 20th anniversary issue was my first one. At least I got 4~ years out of it.

I picked it up over the weekend. I haven't subscribed in years, but have read/bought at least a few issues every year since it's introduction 24 years ago. This issue was a really nice love letter to the fans and all things Nintendo. I loved seeing Nester one last time and quite enjoyed reliving some fond memories of my youth. Farewell, Nintendo Power. You will be greatly missed. :'-)
