GameSetWatch’s video game magazine round up features Nintendo Power again, and lauds the mag for its Nintendo first party exclusivity access. In this case: Pokemon. Oh, and if you want to get some insight into Nintendo’s first party developer scene, there’s a handful fo interviews there, as well:
This month’s NP kicks it on the interview front as well, featuring a roundtable discussion with the four main folks behind Diamond/Pearl (including Ken Sugimori, the man who devised and drew the first 251 PokÃ©mon pretty much by himself). The interview cavalcade continues with Randy Pitchford (Brothers in Arms: Double Time), the Super Paper Mario guys, and Shingo Mukaitoge (Dewy), but that’s not even the main highlight here — that’s reserved for the 4-page feature on cooking games titled “Now You’re Cooking with Power” and featuring staff writer Chris Hoffman in a photo-sequence that’s nothing short of hilarious.
Then there’s a two-page strategy guide on some obscure title called Kid Icarus (which I may need, given all the difficulty level-related swearing I’ve been doing lately). To the NP readers out there: has NP started a comeback from the days of old?
