Gamers have always had a love/hate relationship with movie game adaptations. While we love the idea of playing as one of Hollywood's biggest action heroes, it's common to hate the finished games. It's because most movie games are cynical cash-ins that a lot people know to avoid. Today we're going to be talking about the 8- and 16-bit movie games that don't suck, at least according to Nintendo Power. Join me as I count down Nintendo Power's Top 10 Reviewed Movie Games. Includes: Batman, The Hunt For Red October, Jurassic Park, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Robin Hood and more! http://www.defunctgames.com
Today we're talking about the official Sega Genesis Seal of Quality. It was a selling point back in the early 1990s, and a way to remind customers that we were a world away from the Great Games Crash of 1983. But was the Sega Genesis seal of quality actually bad luck? No, probably not, but a lot of the companies featured in this advertisement went out of business within a year or two of it running in magazines. Today we're going to take a look at the seventeen publishers featured in this old school commercial and uncover their fate. Let's see how many of these companies are still around. http://www.defunctgames.com

Episode 21 - This week, I create the "pilot" episode of a new category of videos I'd like to start doing called "Let's Read". A play on the "Let's Play" category of videos, this series would showcase classic gaming magazines and books from back in the day along with my memories from back then. Probably extremely long-winded and definitely not for everybody. In this installment, I take a look at the final issue of Nintendo Fun Club news, which was a free periodical covering the NES before Nintendo power was launched. This magazine was sent free of charge to anyone who sent in the warranty card from their Nintendo Entertainment System. Those folks were sent a letter letting them know that this magazine would cease to exist, giving them an opportunity to subscribe to Nintendo Power right off the bat, so that they wouldn't miss a thing.

For many of us, Nintendo Power was the gateway drug to harder video game magazines. With its eye-catching cover designs and an emphasis on detailed strategy guides, Nintendo Power toed the line between informative news source and wildly biased propaganda machine. No matter where you come down on this long-running magazine, it's interesting to look back at some of the misconceptions people have about Nintendo Power's early days. Here are five facts you didn't know about Nintendo Power.
