1 More Podcastle

99 – Video Game Numerology

99 Episodes / (Month of episode release (8) + (1) More Podcastle = 9) = 11
Year of episode release (2014) – 11 = 2003
Year of Mega Man 3 (20XX) – 2003 = XX – 03
Number of Podcastle Hosts (3) – (XX – 03) = XX
X = roman numeral for 10, therefore XX = 20
The book of Genesis [Retro gaming connection], chapter 17 says Abraham was 99 years old [SAME # AS EPISODES]
20- Genesis Chapter (17) = 3.

Our Intro and Outro music is by Ben Landis off his album Adventures in Pixels – “Credits Music for an 8 Bit RPG” (Twitter @thebenlandis)

Our interlude track was “Go Back” by Lazygecko
