Needless to say it didn't take the update. And after about 6-8 hours I managed to update it to better than it was.
But.... a lot of the data I had and texts are kinda gone.
So that kinda sucks.
I have a secret to tell you.
Although it won't be a secret now.
I've never actually beaten Super Mario Bros.
Well... until about two days ago.
You know, when I did finally beat it.
I know, I probably lost some serious gamer cred.
But, yay I finally beat it?
Sadly, today it has been announced that Nintendo Power will be shuttering its doors. It might continue on as a digital magazine, but sadly things look grim.
This is pretty sad to me as I grew up with Nintendo Power and I personally will be sad to see it go. To me, even though we live in the digital age, there is nothing like flipping the pages of a magazine. The feel of the paper is fabulous and fantastic.
Update 11:30 AM EST 8/22/12:
A statement provided by Nintendo reads:
“Nintendo can confirm that Future US will end the production of Nintendo Power magazine with the last issue slated for December 2012.”
MAN I CAN'T WAIT!
It looks fabulous. I'll be getting the paper back version, it is the one on the left.
Those connections I made with people are some of the greatest things in the world. The people around us do help to shape who we are and how we interact with others. They gave me help when I needed it and courage to move on so many times.
I've fallen so far before, but I've had great friends who were there to support me. These connections and life experiences made me stronger and eventually helped me to accept myself for who I am. As a part of that acceptance I started coming out to people. Most people were really supportive. A few weren't but not many. And I was okay with that, because I had accepted a huge fact about my life.
To this day, even if it caused a bit of controversy, I'd do it all over again. Now, there is a point to all of this. The connections I made on BZPower and having become staff put me into an interesting position for awhile.
I had members at that time and a bit after send me PMs and IMs, many of whom didn't accept themselves yet. So, I talked to them and helped them. I told them that thinks were okay. I comforted people I didn't even know, but I knew how they were feeling.
Sometimes people need help, and sometimes there isn't anyone to talk to about those problems. At the time I didn't know it, but I became someone people could talk to in private. Someone who could help on a website that at the time didn't have anyone.
As we've all grown up with BZPower, so have our views. So many members started on the website at a young age, as they grew they faced problems that weren't easy to talk about. I did not mind at all being someone to talk to. In many ways I wished I had someone to talk to in those awkward times for myself. Sometimes, we all need someone to talk too.
Helping people through ways I never even thought that I would. Helping give people the will to move on. That is my crowning achievement on BZPower. All the stats and ranks mean nothing in the long run. The ways in which we have all affected the lives of others, that is to me the best thing about BZPower.
We always touch the lives of others through every interaction. Always keep in mind that there is someone else on the other side of the computer screen.
