Warp Zone Podcast: August 1988
August of 1988 will always be a special time in my life because that’s the month I got my NES! We talk briefly about that and then cover the world of Nintendo during that time frame (spoiler: not much was happening that month). As such, it’s a shorter than usual episode, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless!
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!
