BC001: Nintendo Launch Titles part 1: Sports Games

Hello and welcome to Blown Cartridges, the podcast where old-ass gamers talk about old-ass videogames. I’m your host, Michael Coorlim, and with me today are quite a few guests – Ben Hsu, Pernell Vaughan, Gerald Wallace, Pol Subanajuoy, and Jeremy. Just… Jeremy.

This is our first episode, so we’re going to launch with a launch – talking about the launch titles for the Nintendo Entertainment System These were the games that were available when Nintendo’s first console went for sale nationally in 1985.

Now, we’re recording it all at once but we’ll be breaking it down into four episodes to keep things sane. First episode we’ll be talking about the system’s sports games, episode two we’ll be talking about the games that used the zapper light gun and the ROB robot, and episode three, most of the rest, and episode 4? Mario. Just… Mario.

This episode features Ten Yard Fight, Baseball, Excitebike, Soccer, and Tennis.

Let me just thank you listeners for joining in, and let me thank composer AJ Mills for setting us up.
