Chrontendo

Episode Guide (wip)

What is Chrontendo?
"Chrontendo is an attempt to chronogame the Nintendo Entertainment System. That is, we will be playing every game released for the NES in chronological order. More accurately, we will be playing every game produced for both the NES and its Japanese equivalent, the Famicom. Furthermore, we will be documenting this project with regularly updated video weblogs."
