For those that might be interested, two classic videogame names that you hear from time to time showed up in Next Generation Magazine this month. Leonard Herman, author of Phoenix: The Fall & Rise of Videogames, has a correspondence in the Letters section and he mentions an Atari 2600 game author, Rob Fulop. I didn't recognize the other names there, but perhaps they too were in the game scene back in the 2600 days and I just don't know them. Anyway, there is also a neat piece in the Retro section about the technology used in the arcade game based on the the band Journey which I guess it what became Journey Escape on the 2600. Perhaps someone will find this interesting. matt =========================================================================== ||| John V.
