I'm Lucas M. Thomas, the Leader of the Nintendo Force and Editor-in-Chief of NF Magazine. AMA!
When Nintendo Power Magazine was shut down in late 2012, I decided not to let its legacy die without a fight. I'd been part of the IGN Nintendo team for over six years already at that point, and knew I had the writing and design skills needed to launch an all-new Nintendo-focused magazine to keep NP's momentum going – if I had help. So I put out the call to some of the hardest-working, most well known Nintendo journalists around the planet to form a new, united team. Together, we became the Nintendo Force, and we launched NF Magazine in January 2013.
Today, we've completed seven issues and are concluding our Kickstarter campaign to fund a second full year of subscriptions: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/910078610/nf-magazine-year-2-subscriptions
You can also grab subscriptions directly from our website store right here: http://www.nintendoforcemagazine.com/product/the-nf-magazine-year-2-subscription/
As the final hours tick away in our Kickstarter campaign, I'll be hanging out here on Reddit answering anyone's questions. Fire away!
