Updates for The NES Compendium

  UPDATE: 09/14/2015   The goal remains: get the NES Compendium out by the end of 2015/early 2016. By 11/2015, you will (hopefully) see what the book looks like, inside and out.

The 86 Worst NES Games: #s 73-51

  IF YOU CARE ABOUT ORDER, YOU’LL READ PART 1 FIRST!                                                                                                            #73 – PLATOON     I imagine navigating through swaths of Vietnam jungle would be confusing, particularly if you’re a terrified American boy who’s in over his head.
