Atari Historian Curt Vendel passed away unexpectedly last week - he was the first phone interview I ever did on my podcast way back on Episodes 12 and 13 in 2005 to talk about the Atari Flashback 2, which did not emulate an Atari 2600 but was an actual Atari 2600 on one chip. There is a GoFundMe for his family. Dragon Con Went Virtual and it was great! There are a lot of panels on the Digital Media Track YouTube channel that feature myself and Rob Roberts. I was on the British Invaders podcast about the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Infocom game. I was on the Almost Daily Discourse podcast talking about random topics. Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 will be virtual like SGDQ was, and volunteer applications open on September 24th. MAGFest cancelled its January convention without Force Majeure, and held a telethon on Twitch to raise $100k to pay all the penalties. Microsoft announced the Xbox Series X and S early due to a leak, and also announced that EA Play was coming to Game Pass. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is coming back, and this time it will be on PC so preservation will be easier once the license expires again. Apple is now allowing game streaming services to operate on iOS - as long as each individual game has its own app on the App Store. NVIDIA announced its intentions to buy CPU maker ARM. Then we talk to OLR about conventions and what we're doing with Twitch Channel Points at VOG.
