Warp Zone Podcast: November 1988

Welcome to the ultimate NES trip down memory lane! We’re talking about everything Nintendo 30 years ago, and this month we have some fantastic games to discuss as well as print media and we take a gander at the Sears and J.C. Penney holiday catalogs. Thanks again for taking the time to listen and for all of the feedback!

 

 

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!
