Ep. 55 – Top 5 NES Games with Special Guest Steve Jones

Hey gang! On this episode we are going back to the 80’s and early 90’s, looking at our top 5 Nintendo Entertainment System games with special guest Steve Jones! You might know Steve as the mad genius behind our intro and outro music. He’s also 1/2 of the musical duo Northern Hearts, and lately he has been releasing some amazing original music and video game covers on his YouTube channel swjonesmusic. Join us as we look at our favourites from a bygone era in video game history, as well as reminisce on the experience of trading games with friends, and renting from the corner store (or bait shop?). It’s all things NES, so strap in and buckle up, for another Xennial nostalgia trip on The Happy Xen Podcast!

    Dragon Warrior is the best. Steve lent it to me when I had chicken pox and I only gave it back to him because he had nothing else in his life worth living for and now he’s got it made with a guest spot on the Happy Xen podcast.
