The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was released in North America on August 13, 1985. It is considered to be one of the most successful video game consoles ever made and helped bring home console gaming into the mainstream.
June 1990 was a month that changed the world of gaming forever. What happened in july 1990?
This month, we’ll be covering a whopping 24 NES games! Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem if the most of them were fantastic releases, but there are a few duds here. Nintendo Power, GamePro, EGM, and Game Player’s are among the June gaming publications discussed. We watch some more NES ads and provide comments for our featured Energy Tank presentation!
