Warp Zone Podcast: April 1989

We flashback to April of 1989 to discuss the NES games that were making waves back then (as well as the ones that cratered). We finally answer more of your questions in Community Connection and we reveal our favorite cartoons of the ’80s. We have much more than that to discuss in this overstuffed episode, so we hope you have a great time!

 

 

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!
