Inspired by the punk rock zines and gaming mags of our formative years, Nintendo Fun Factor is a celebration of Nintendo and the games that appeared on their platforms.

Issue 1 includes articles on both the raddest and scariest NES games, a Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Concert, music and game “reviews,” and more! It’s a .pdf, so you can read it on your Mac/PC, iPad, Kindle Fire, phone, or whatever other .pdf-reading gadget you have!

This zine is a (likely) quarterly labor of love that we’re totally committed to and we really hope you enjoy it! Feel free to leave any comments here or email us at Nintendofunclubpodcast@gmail.com!
