The Power Glove is one of the most infamous accessories for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). From a tool for NASA, to corporate infighting, a fake CES demo and a nearly universally hated toy only to come back as a pop culture icon. This is the unlikely tale behind the Power Glove.

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.

Buy "Console Wars": http://amzn.to/2unQj3g Check out CGQ+ : http://www.youtube.com/cgqplus Episode 48 - The premiere issue of Nintendo Power, from the summer of 1988. Nintendo had been sending out a free newsletter, the Nintendo Fun Club News, to registered Nintendo owners. But in the summer 0f 1988, they made the shift to a full-blown, Nintendo-centric magazine. Nintendo Power was available on the news stands for $3.50, or a 6-issue, 1-year subscription could be purchased for $15. In this first issue of the magazine, such NES classic as Super Mario Bros. 2, Contra, and Double Dragon are covered in-depth, along with previews of upcoming games like Marble Madness and Gun.Smoke. For many gamers of my generation, this was the first magazine we ever owned. As such, its iconic status really can't be over-stated. I personally never had a subscription to Nintendo Power because we just didn't have the money, but I often read my best friend's issues and to this day the nostalgia pours off of each page. Show notes: - This is the first episode of the show in which I used a 2-camera setup. I think this helps break things up visually and makes the show more interesting. The second camera also gives me "someone" to talk to when I'm relating personal anecdotes about the games being discussed. - I have wanted to do a read-through of this issue since I got the idea to do these magazine videos, but wanted to wait until I thought I had the hang of it well enough. Based on how this episode turned out, I'm glad that I waited. - Portions of this episode were recorded on three separate days, but I always put the same shirt back on, to maintain continuity.
