    Well guys, I have some good news.
    I was able to find a replacement for my Intellivision online for $40. It includes the original box, manual, and three games.

    I thought I would be able to return sooner but that didn’t happen due to all of the non-gaming stuff which consumed my daily schedule. I then decided that I wouldn’t return until I was sure I could do so without rescheduling/canceling.
    Life has slowed down to where I can return to retro gaming and return to Twitch with a new episode of Retro With Marco! I hope you will join me this Tuesday, October 15 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT when I will have the following:
    - High score and speedrun shoutouts
    - The Toshiba Pasopia & the recent tape dumps
    - A quick look at Arkandenoid for the C64
    My plan for the show is to return to the bi-weekly schedule but I will keep everyone updated here, on Discord, and on other social media.

    See you then!

    Oh guys, I'm feeling so overwhelmed at work lately.  Please forgive me for venting, but it's gotten so difficult.  Do more with less.  I just feel so bad that I can't seem to keep up.

    Hello again! Here's the latest on my end:
     
    All of the non-gaming stuff in my life ramped up significantly to where I postponed my Twitch show on a few occasions.
     
    While work was rather hectic, it was still going well. However, it remained hectic throughout these summer months; I had to do a double-take when I realized it was the 2nd half of August.
     
    Unrelated, but no less important: I went for a Wellness Visit (Physical) for the first time in far too long. I went for the proverbial full tune-up including a tetanus shot. (Wow, that part really sucked. I'm not going to sugarcoat it at all. You feel it for 2-3 days, and my body sure felt it.) The good news is that all of my vitals are normal and test results were negative. So let this serve as a reminder: Be sure to get a check-up especially if you're getting up there in age like I am.
     
    I was hoping to stream an episode before an upcoming trip but that won't happen, unfortunately. I realized that I really hadn't kept up on any retro gaming news and world records, and I'd rather get back into the swing of things before getting back on Twitch. I had to put the MGL aside (I started off well but would have likely faded given the list of games chosen for this quarter, but I was having a lot of fun).
     
    I'm glad to see that atari.io is still up and running smoothly and that the community here remains positive. I look forward to joining a Wednesday night chat in the near future.

    Here's a great title for #cibsunday in terms of gameplay and packaging. Control the mother kangaroo by hopping over platforms and climbing ladders to save her baby while avoiding apple throwing monkeys. I played this in arcades as a kid and really enjoyed it although I didn't get very far. It was one of those games with so many different sounds, bright colors, and lots of things going on at once. This 2600 port does a really good job of delivering the same sort of action and looks pretty good, I think, although it's far from the arcade. I really like the artwork and fold out instructions too.
