Warp Zone Podcast: December 1991

The end of 1991 saw a last minute push by Nintendo to try and sell as many Super Nintendos as possible for the holiday season. An uptick in Genesis sales proved to be more of an obstacle than initially thought, but one thing’s for sure: there were plenty of fantastic games available for every system on the market, with some really good ones hitting in December of 1991. We cover those, plus we answer some of your questions in the Energy Tank. Stick around to play Musical Jeopardy with us at the end of the episode.

As always, thanks so much for taking the time to listen, and have a Merry Christmas!
