Welcome to the July 1988 episode of Warp Zone! We have a lot to talk about this month as it’s the introduction of Nintendo Power magazine. We go page by page and chat about all of the games covered and little details we notice. We cover all of the games that launched in July of 1988 for the NES as well as play 20 Questions – can you figure out which games we’ve picked out? As always, thanks for listening!
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. Plus, you can listen to us on Google Play Music!
