ARGcast #20: Happy Birthday, SNES! (with Martin Alessi)

Martin shares with us some amazing stories from his time with Electronic Gaming Monthly as well as how he got started with his new family friendly video game magazine Little Player! Be sure to keep listening to learn the identity of the mysterious Sushi-X.

We also celebrate the Super Nintendo’s 25th anniversary with some of our favorite SNES games and memories. We even read some tweets from some ARGonauts sharing their most cherished titles from the console. Be sure to let us know your favorites too! The show closes with a discussion about the Analogue Nt Mini. Is this NES clone for the modern era worth the cold hard cash? What other alternatives are out there?

The Stage of History this week welcomes the spooky sequel Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Mario and friends’ first time hitting the tracks in Super Mario Kart, the fighting game that spawned a series still going strong today The King of Fighters ’94, and more! Don’t miss out on our game giveaways either with stellar titles Dogos and Worms WMD.
