NP Podcast Ep. 006: SNES Turns 25 & the SEGA Genesis Returns

DownloadiTunesYouTubePrevious Episodes

This week’s podcast tackles the birthday of the SNES (turned 25 in August in the United States) as we look fondly back at one of Nate’s all time favorite video game consoles. We also learn that for some strange reason, the SEGA Genesis is actually back in production for Brazil only (full legal production, backed by SEGA), so we dive a bit into the war that existed between these two consoles in their heyday. Lastly we turn our attention to the Pokemon Moon game leak and how it negatively impacts gamers and gaming media.

We are now taking fan topics, games, and ideas for future podcasts down in the comment section, so feel free to make a suggestion! You can catch our audio only stream below.
