Warp Zone Podcast: February 1989

It’s time to jump into the time warp and join us in February of 1989. We pick out the games that we consider to feature the most impressive graphics on the NES. We also cover all of the NES titles released during that month and take a peek at some of the print media as well. Enjoy!

 

 

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!
