Still feeling a bit under the weather, but I did manage to get this week’s episode featuring Night Driver and Golf out this week. Thanks for your patience! Next week is the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa memories show, you can send me your memories to be read on the show by December 20th. The games will resume on January 8th with Ghost Manor and Spike’s Peak by Xonox. You can send any stories and feedback to email@example.com. Whatever Holiday you celebrate, I hope that it is merry and happy and safe, and that you can play some Atari 2600! Thank you all for listening!

The Intellivisionaries – Episode 4. Merry Christmas! We talk about the home-brew game “Christmas Carol Vs. The Ghost of Christmas Presents”, interview its designer/programmer James ‘dZ Jay’ Pujals, and do an in depth discussion of the game itself. We also interview Phil Boland about his Sears Overlay Set. And this episode is packed with holiday goodness, including a reworked Christmas Mix of The Intellivisionaries Theme, Intellivision Christmas music, and an additional original Christmas tune (“Lonely Christmas” – by Paul Nurminen) that accompanies our ‘end of year’ outtakes. Grab some eggnog, sit back and enjoy!

Hi guys, I am unable to get the show out this week due to my being sick, and I really can’t fit it in anywhere on my schedule until next week. The Night Driver and Golf episode will come out next Wednesday, followed by the Holiday memories episode the following week. I was planning on taking the week after Christmas off to be with my wife, who is off from school. I feel bad about that now, but I still want to spend time with her. There will be an episode on New Year’s Day, but it won’t have any Atari games in it. It will be a short episode and hopefully interesting to you. The month of December is one of the reasons I was hesitant to start my podcast, I am busy at work and this year has been extra crazy with extra-curricular activities. Which is probably why I’m sick in the first place. Anyway, I hope you understand and I apologize to you all. I will see you next week.
