    The narrator for one of the Atari ads sounded like a subdued Jack Palance to me. I wonder if it was….

  2. This sounds pretty incredible and I’m disappointed that it never became a reality. As for the commercials, I really wish I could’ve played that Journey game on the 2600!

    Atari had so many great ideas, concepts and projects…
