Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross thumb through the history of Nintendo Power, and visit some other game magazines along the way.
Every year we choose a special topic for a special episode, and we've wanted to cover this year's topic for a while: Nintendo Power. While this magazine was specific to America, most major regions had their own version of an official Nintendo sponsored publication. This episode takes a look at the history of the magazine, talks about the usual contents, and reflects on video game magazines as a whole.
Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll that determined the topic of this episode. We really appreciate it!
