Sealed Copy of NES Cult Classic ‘Kid Icarus’ Earns $9K at AuctionMike Tyson Is Still Pissed Over Nintendo’s ‘Punch-Out!!’ Stay on target The NES Classic Edition is coming out soon. Some gamers might turn their nose up at the prospect of spending money on games that could easily (and illegally) be emulated or purchased piecemeal (and for over twice as much) on the Virtual Console, but it still looks like a rad little device. It’s $60 for 30 games that are almost 30 years old, but it’s also a half-sized NES with a full-size controller you can plug into a Wiimote for Virtual Console games, too!Back before GameFAQs and message boards, we had only a few sources for tips, walkthroughs, and cheat codes. And NES games were balls hard, so they were even more necessary then. Nintendo Power was the best for that, a monthly magazine Nintendo itself put out filled with maps and codes.Archive.org had Nintendo Power‘s first 15 years up for a few months, but Nintendo pulled a (legally defensible, arguably necessary in our current system of copyright protection) dick move and had them taken down. Still, there’s eBay, any old issues you might have in the basement, and a variety of digital means we can’t legally point you towards. So here are all the Nintendo Power issues you need to check out to get through all the games in the NES Classic Edition! The first issue of Nintendo Power came out after many of the early games on the system, so it’s pretty front-loaded. On the other hand, it means you can get tips on a half dozen NES Classic Ediiton games in just that one issue.
