Youtube Video Description:
The first part of a look back at the NES hardware itself begins with the origins of its Japanese version, the Family Computer — Famicom for short. This episode adapted from the text of Good Nintentions 1985, with special thanks to Steven Lin. I realize this episode covers some of the same ground as other recent episodes and had intended to produce this further down the road (and as a single episode with the second part, the NES launch survey). Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew threw a monkey wrench in my plans; this is all I had time and resources to produce this week. Apologies if it's less inspiring than usual.
