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.
Another month down, another Nintendo Power issue to talk about, and another episode of SNEScapades that goes on longer than an hour. In this episode, Link and Emmy discuss Jurassic Park, interesting controllers, cute teenage robots, iffy Nintendo science, and games you can play with your dad (or maybe your imagined younger self as the mid-life crisis sets in?)
There is so much to talk about in this May 1993 issue of Nintendo Power, that we needed a super-sized episode cram it all in. We’re gonna talk Batman Returns, The Wonder Years, Dave, the Mario Bros. movie, Kawasaki jet skis, defunct comics! What more could you ask for?
This is a big one folks! We do some deep dives on all sorts of topics while flipping through the pages of Nintendo Power from March 1993. We talk more about the art, specifically the covers from this era of Nintendo Power. We also chat about the Storm of the Century, Canadian media review shows for kids, obscure cartoons only SteampunkLink seems to remember, Capcom, Tiny Toons, the poorly chosen Nintendo Power award nominees, and lots more.
This episode features talk of 90s cartoons, horror franchises marketed to children, and forgotten franchises that just fizzled out. Remember the comic series Zen: The Intergalactic Ninja or the band Trixter? Neither did they, but they talk about them anyway.
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).
