Warp Zone Podcast: October 1989

Sometimes a month comes along that is just filled with subpar games, and unfortunately October of 1989 fits the bill. We cover the games that released on the NES back then as well as the headlines, but we spend the majority of our time waxing poetic about our favorite movies that came out in the 1980s. We hope you enjoy, and have a Happy Halloween!
