Welcome to SNES is life!


We're a live-play video game channel playing and reviewing video games released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).  We don't promise to be the best video gamers, nor do we make any kind of guarantee to show you anything special along the way, but we do plan to play and give our honest opinions and hopefully entertain you as much as we entertain ourselves.  So join us as we explore the titles released in North America and let us know what your favorites were!


Our Mission Statement:

To play and review every Super Nintendo Entertainment System games released in North America; by date of release (if possible); occasionally we may pull in guest players to fill when one of us isn't available or vice, versa, or just for fun.  We'll play games as many days as we feel necessary to give our review of it, sometimes that's 3 days, most times its one or two. Saturday night we'll record a longer show and play a different game and not in order at all just for fun, like a play-through of A Link to the Past or something along those lines.

Show Schedule







While these are planned times it is likely we will also broadcast at random times throughout the week, so be sure to keep an eye on our social media for announcements.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), also known as the Super NES or Super Nintendo, is a 16-bit video game console developed by Nintendo released in 1991 in North America.  The SNES is Nintendo's second home console, following the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The console introduced advanced graphics and sound capabilities compared with other systems at the time. The development of a variety of enhancement chips integrated in game cartridges helped to keep it at the forefront of innovation for many years.
