Warp Zone Podcast: June 1990

We’ve got a massive 24 NES games to cover this month! Normally that wouldn’t be so bad if the majority of them were awesome releases, but there’s more than a handful of stinkers here. We also go over the June gaming magazines, including: Nintendo Power, GamePro, EGM, and Game Player’s. For our feature Energy Tank presentation we watch some more NES commercials and give our commentary! Thanks for listening!
