SNEScapades: Playing with Power. Jan 93. Nintendo Power Issue 44

Our first Playing With Power episode of SNEScapades has us taking a long trip down memory lane as we explore the big January 1993 bonus issue of Nintendo Power. We’ll talk about games we’ve already discussed on the show (like Magical Quest: Starring Mickey Mouse), some that we haven’t gotten to yet (like Shanghai II), and at least one we won’t actually see of a while (Equinox).

Chester Cheetah Edition

SNEScapades #42: Chester Cheetah: Too Cool to Fool. Plus Cal Ripken Jr Baseball, Bulls vs. Blazers & the NBA Playoffs, Kaneko USA and the Fido Dido game that could have been.

We didn’t think basketball could get much worse than last week’s All Star Challenge (by virtue of not really being a basketball game) but this one sure wants to challenge that assumption.
