Playing with Power: October 1993
We have made it to another month in our chronology, so it’s time to talk about an issue of Nintendo Power. Our guests for this episode are two-thirds of the amazing team from the Gateleapers podcast. Jason and Matt might have been too young to have read this issue when it was new, but they have a ton of hilarious commentary to offer anyway. If you’re into fonts, early 90s CGI, Yoda feet, Plok, or wrestling then we’ve probably got something for ya. Also plenty of humorous US/UK misunderstandings.
We also check in with Newsie, who lets us know that Cool Runnings is objectively a better movie than The Nightmare before Christmas. Not what I’d have expected, but you can’t argue with the data.
This issue was a bit lackluster, but we had so much fun chatting with these jokers, that I don’t think mind. But if you take away one thing from this podcast, it’s this: Don’t EVER suggest your girlfriend dress up like your mom, please.
