In this episode we continue our recurring segment where we discuss the most important and interesting games of a particular year. In episode 139 we covered 1989. This episode we take a look at the games of 1989.
In Game Club, we pick a game to both play separately that we've never played before, and then come together on the show to discuss our thoughts. This time, we're cheating a little because Sef has played this, but we're returning to the Metroid series with Super Metroid.
In another 'Octal FM are Nintendo fanboys' episode, we take a look back at the often overlooked history of Nintendo and the Internet. It involves satellites beaming games down to a virtual village on your SNES.
