We should have a faceoff grand battle: PSJ versus Spector!

I think bob has a point actually (in his original post) - a lot of times I get carried away with stories and the technical making of the game, so I draw it back and try and get human elements and gameplay exposition in. Can be very difficult with the tight word counts though. The Movie MO I did was very good in this respect but the problem is I left out a fair bit of technical info that some may have enjoyed more. It's a real balancing act.
On the subject of DOS games, I've got two interviews in the bag for Descent (20 years old this year :3:
I interviewed William Moeller of Elektronite for the Intellivision 35th Anniversary in this month's rg. Unfortunately it didn't make it in, so here it is:-
I posted the mag to you last week Eugenio. Hopefully you'll get it soon!
I do find postal charges odd. I sent a copy to Keith Robinson as well, he's on the west coast, thousands of miles more distance...same price lol
Greyfox, in the absence of actual subscriber numbers, (which I am assuming you do not have) I think the odd person getting in a huff and cancelling their sub on the forum is not necessarily evidence the mag is losing huge swathes of subscribers. And even if it was, the new subscribers could be outnumbering it by any other conjecture we care to think up. Just saying.
Eugenio, PM me your address and I'll sort you out a copy. It's the least I can do for your help.
While I'm here I'll give a shout out to Alessandro Pace who was also a huge help. I hope maybe we can do an Intellivision collectors article too!
Hope everyone enjoys it.

@jdanddiet - I know exactly what you mean, hitting the ball the wrong way can result in serious laughter! My dad used to love Sea Battle but at the time it was way over my head Did you ever play bi-planes on Triple Action? That's another great 2 player one.
We never had triple action which was a shame, I think we'd have enjoyed that one!
I presume everyone knows about the David "Papa Intellivision" Chandler tribute site? I think it's run by his son-in-law.
Me and my Pa used to play Golf. He used to get confused sometimes which direction he was aiming, I helped by laughing uncontrollably when the ball flew off in completely the wrong direction
In fact we played a few games in the old Intellivision together, he liked a bit of Sea Battle and Armor Battle too.
