MR MAN😄 ,

First timer but this is 😊 great

I don’t know if Nintendo power mag did an issue with super Mario world 2 yoshis island if they did pls do an episode on it. It is my favorite game because it inspires all of the new Mario games (yes including the 3D platformers) and the art is (although little kiddish.) is very unique and amazing. Pls pls pls do one also this is one of the best podcasts about retro games. Btw my mom and dad got me a SNES for Christmas 2021 yes that late… 😅😅. Please please please please please please please do another episode soon I’m die ing here and literally can’t stand to wait!!!!!

Mario pronunciation forgiven!)🍄

You must be from Chicago or in the greater Midwest. I guess that guy below has never interacted with a midwesterner.👎
Anyway, cheers to you and what you’re doing my friend. This is exactly what I’ve needed to compliment my going back in time to revisit Nintendo from the NES through the Wii. This has proven to be limitlessly invaluable because of what happened with Archive.org, and most certainly to ease the getting through these tough times caused by the pandemic.😷

Much love, be safe, thanks again and good luck on the rest of your mission!)🍀

So Much Nostalgia, So Much Fun

I recently found this podcast and really appreciate Tom and the work he did. I really enjoyed the reviews and history behind some of the games. I also loved when he had people share their memories and experiences of different games.What I found most surprising and enjoyable though was all of the different music he would put into each episode. I didn’t realize there was so much video game inspired music out there. I would love to give it four stars, but can’t because the project was not finished. So if you enjoy Nintendo and Nintendo power you will like this podcast. Thank you for all your work Tom and I hope you get back at it someday.
