Warp Zone Podcast: November 1987

As November 1987 swings around one thing is clear: video games are back, baby! The NES is one of the hottest selling “toys” across the country and stores quickly have trouble keeping them in stock. It’s no wonder, with a stellar lineup of must-have games. We chat about the ones that launched that month, plus we chat about the J.C. Penney Christmas catalog and some of our favorite memories. Join us, won’t you?

 

 

We hope you enjoy our trip down memory lane. As always, be sure to check out our Warp Zone section on the site for news, reviews, and more written as if from that time period. Don’t forget to send us your questions and suggestions to be featured on a future show via an e-mail (please put Warp Zone in the subject line) or by getting in touch with us via Twitter. As always, please rate us in iTunes, and subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Plus, you can listen to us on Google Play Music!
