If you can find anything new to say about it, then maybe that's a good idea. NESMaker is a good topic because it's recent, and there are a lot of expectations around it.

You don't have to buy it to talk about it.

You can get images and details from their YouTube pages.

And you can ask Joe for details, or search this forum for his posts.

Also what is "explicit bat punching"? I don't want to write about anything inappropriate.

That is meant literally.

You literally punch bats.

It's sort of a play on parental advisory warnings about violence. But with bats.

But if it's that violent even if it's a joke it's inappropriate for children sort of so I don't know.

In an interesting timing coincidence, Lexington Alexander has published 1 issue of an NES developed magazine, and is working on a second:

I managed to get it on my phone, cost $1.05.

My kindle app had no results searching for "dev cart", but was able to find it searching for "Lexington Alexander"

who is Lexington Alexander
I guess he is a writer who is also making a NES game. He is on Twitter @thocolat

It talks about Lizard, Lucky Penguin, Little Medusa, Twin Dragons, Tailgate Party, and a few other things. So, I guess it mostly highlights new homebrew games.

I think in the next edition, hes going to talk about Cheril the Writer, Super Tilt Bros, Micro Mages, Nebs and Debs, and a little bit about 6502 ASM and using NES screen tool.
