    TUESDAY NIGHT CHAT!
    I will be in the chat tonight (around 7:15pm Pacific).  My goal is to try a few rounds of emulated Cybermorph for the high score challenge.  Join me if you'd like to see how that goes.  Maybe you need guidance on setting up an emulator.  Maybe offer me some tips on the game.  Or whatever you'd like to chat about.

    Why, yes, I am spending my Sunday afternoon watching the 2020 Classic Tetris World Championship on Twitch!

    Spoiler Alert: We will have a new champion this year as 2-Time Champion, Joseph Saelee, lost in the 1st round of the Finals in 5 games.
     
    I will add that watching these young gamers take Tetris to new heights is truly fantastic!

    If you're working from home and need a break around 3pm ET today, then stop on by my Twitch channel for the Episode 42 REPLAY of Retro With Marco! I gave some shoutouts to several new scoring and speedrun world records, and I took a look at Super Mario 64 for the Sega Dreamcast. I'll be in the chat following along.
     
    In addition, I took a quick look at Robbie Lakeman's new Donkey Kong world record....which he just so happened to beat again while I was streaming! (I learned of it after the show; you can click here for the stats on his new WR.)

    Here's a show update, of sorts...
     
    Starting this Tuesday night at 9:30pm ET, I will be joining Michael Sroka of Settle It On The Screen! The show will be part recap of the latest episode of Retro With Marco (which will precede the new show) and part discussion about various retrogaming topics. It will be unscripted and a departure from my own show format.
     
    Michael and I have talked about collaborating and we're looking forward to our new venture.
     
    So we hope you will tune in this Tuesday night at 9pm ET for Episode 34 of Retro With Marco...
