Nintendo Power Retrospective - Part 1

Posted by Count_Zero (311 posts) -

This week I start with the retro video gaming, as I make my way through Nintendo Power, one issue (or so) at a time, starting with the first issue of the Nintendo Fun Club News, and a little background about how Nintendo Power came to be.

Wil Wheaton's Blog Entry about the tournament

Other little notes: I forgot to discuss the music in Super Mario Bros that was an absolute oversight on my part. It isn't helped by the fact that I forgot to record game audio when did the gameplay capture. Other than that, Excitebike and Hogan's Alley have essentially no music to speak of, save for some little bits at the title screen.
