Welcome to 1989! We give out some awards to our favorite NES games of 1988 in our Energy Tank features department. Listen to us mull over and argue for our favorites. There are plenty of games we cover this month as well in the POW Block, but unfortunately none of them are exactly triple A. There’s a lot to listen to this month, so it’s best you got started!
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! We’re also on Spotify!
