Nintendo Times Radio 102: Party Like It’s 1999
We’ve entered that weird time of the year again where all of the blockbuster triple-A video games have released and we have to wait about 2 months for them to pick back up again. Honestly I sort of appreciate the reprieve as it gives me time to catch up on the games I’ve been itching to play! We go over some of those in Gaming Update and then we thought it would be fun to flashback 20 years to take a look at the games that came out in 1999 and go over our favorites. We hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving and we’re thankful to all of our loyal listeners for tuning in!
