Power Button - Episode 85: The Rise And Fall Of Nintendo Power, G4, And Beyond
September 10, 2012
It's been a depressing few weeks for fans of video game coverage in the form of printed media and television channels. Both the famed and long-running Nintendo Power and the collapsing G4 network are said to be not long for this world as the magazine closes down and the channel is rumored to head for a non-gaming revamp. On this week's episode of Power Button, Brad Hilderbrand and I say goodbye to these two familiar brands and discuss where we believe that gaming media is headed as the format continues to grow, change, and evolve. There's also a little Doctor Who discussion in there as well for some reason. Join us for forty-two minutes of fond memories and analysis.
