Playing With Power: Jan 93

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).

SNEScapades End of 1992 Special with Guests Willie and Ginger from the Grand Rapidians Play Games Podcast

WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE!

With another year of SNES games behind us, we decided that this was a good opportunity to have Willie and Ginger (The Grand Rapidians Play Games Podcast) on to talk about their history with the SNES and other games and consoles they played in the 90s.

SNEScapades #45 Test Drive II. Plus WarpSpeed, History of Accolade, and 1992 Wrap-up.

We’ve come to yet the end of another year. And once again, we conclude the year with a racing game on the cover. I wonder if that’s going to keep happening?

Gemfire Edition

SNEScapades #43: Gemfire. Western Fantasy gets the Koei Treatment. Plus Gods, Goal!, History of the Bitmap Bros., Link has a bad day.

December 1992 is winding down, but the games have not been great and they really start fraying Link’s nerves in this episode.

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 start with Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball to see if SNES baseball gets any better. This one fares better than most but it’s still not amazing. We also talk about Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA playoffs. 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.

Jeopardy! Edition

SNEScapades #41: Jeopardy! Edition. Games that are basic for 400, Alex. Plus NBA All-Star Challenge, Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour.

In this episode we’re diving into the worlds of sports-games and game-show games. We talk about Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour which boasts some forward-thinking accessibility options but isn’t terribly impressive otherwise when compared to some of the other games on the system.

Musya Edition

SNEScapades #40 Musya, Spooky Ghosts, Sloggy Pace. Plus Lethal Weapon, NHLPA '93, Info about Park Place Productions and SETA.

A lot of today’s games have something in common in that they represent a leap in quality over similar games that we may have seen on past systems, but still fail to be truly recommendable today.
