Nintendo Power Magazine Commmercial

In memoriam of Nintendo Power, which will be concluding its 24 years of publishing at the end of the year. The end of Nintendo Power reflects how the videogame industry has changed so radically over its publication lifetime, from the point when information, tips, and buying suggestions spread through the schoolyards, offices, and neighborhood street corners of America -- a time before the internet made gaming information ubiquitous. Enjoy this commercial, produced in the heydays of Nintendo Power.


If you cut your teeth on the Nintendo Entertainment System (not literally, I hope), the name "Howard Phillips" should sound familiar; he stood as the smiling American face of Nintendo's corporate monolith for a solid decade, and did everything from running the company's warehouse to editing Nintendo Power, in which he appeared as himself in comic form for several years.
