    Webcomic guy, who was quite a fan of the magazine. It's got a decent following.

    We'll see how it goes I suppose if it is real? Hope they got permission/etc.

    It seems to be real.

    Matthew's confirmed his part at least.

    Out of interest, who are the other people? Matthew's the only one I know.

    I'm just now finding this out. This is great news to me. And i read about the staff that was going to be on it. Seems like hell of a nice mix. I'm definitely gonna subscribe to this next gen magazine.


    "My Popularity in the Pokemon Universe continues to shine like the Aura that is with me. A full-feature movie, 4 two-parter episodes from the Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos anime sagas, a 5-episode arc featuring my trainer Korrina, 3 appearances in the Smash Bros games and a Poke spokespearson for the Pokemon Trading Card commercials and the upcoming Pokken Fighters game. May I soon reach the fame that belongs to Pikachu"

    The Nintendo Force's first magazine is just a few days away.

    The first issue has a Fire Emblem Awakening illustration: the main one from the box.

    The Nintendo Force magazine is awfully expensive, though... I hope they can find some way to sell it at a more reasonable price.

    At first I was excited for a new Nintendo magazine.


    Then I saw the print price for one issue ($17?). Come on guys, NP gave you a whole year's worth of content for $2 more than what you're giving us! Get some ads in there so you can lower the price already!


    EDIT: Apparently they're working on lowering the price; their print-on-demand supplier charges 20 cents a page + $1 on top. So the first step, naturally, is to find a new print supplier.

    Yup, that's how things are. Some of the money is going to be donated to charities though.

    A big reason it's so pricey is that they have NO ADS.

    If they got some ads, we'd be seeing a much lower price.
    Current wishes: I have way too many event legendaries right now. I'm interested in a japanese 6IV ditto, but I'm willing to barter - PM me offers.

    Events I have spares of: Liberty Pass Victini, (HGSS and Link) Celebi, GameStop Keldeo, GameStop Jirachi, and I can breed Phiones. I also have a Japanese Event Shiny Raikou up, if that counts... It's not a spare, but I might be willing to part with it, given enough prodding.

    I'm thinking about getting the magazine. Do they offer subscriptions for it yet?

    It doesn't seem so at the moment.

    By the way, the digital version only costs $5 dollars. I guess that's not really that bad. I'm buying this one.

    Then its going to be $17 every two months? They must get some ads!

    I'd much rather have ads than a huge price, but that's just me. And even at $5, the digital version is expensive. With most magazines, you can get 12 issues for $20.

    Well mine came in the mail today, and I will say this: It's a very clean, crisp, new magazine. It seems old(familiar) and new at the same time.
