Two days ago, we learned the heartbreaking news that Nintendo Power, one of if not the most influential American gaming magazine, would cease publication following the December issue. Maybe you've been a long-time subscriber, or perhaps you don't follow it anymore but hold fond memories of coming home from school to a fresh copy in the mail. No matter who you are, you can't deny the mag's impact.
Those who wish to pay their respects will do so in a manner they see fit. Our good buddy and nerdcore artist Mega Man has chosen to honor Nintendo Power with -- what esle? -- a rap joint. He puts into words what a lot of us are feeling.
And don't you guys worry! You can expect some Destructoid Original features about Nintendo Power in the near future!
