The interview will happen LIVE, so be sure to jump in the chat during the show to ask your questions!

Tonight's interview is going to be awesome. Dunno if you guys have heard, but MAGFest preregistrations are going four times faster than they have in previous years. This really reflects the good decisions they made to change the date, get great guests, and have their best band lineup to date. Going to be amazing.

And a lucky listener to the show will get 2 free passes :D

Got some excellent music tonight. In case you haven't peeped this on reddit or twitter,

. Technically the mixes are in 6-channel stereo rather than the usual 3-channel NES tunes, but the effort that went into this remastering really shows. The musician behind this project will join us live to answer your questions, so either join us in the chat tonight from 7-9PM Eastern or leave your questions here if you want them answered.

After the podcast portion of this week's RFG, we're going to have an official "Super Metroid Remastered" listening party! Tenchux has been dutifully releasing (via Youtube) one song from his new album every day for the past two weeks, and this Wednesday will be your first opportunity to download the whole album in MP3 form! Join us in the 8BitX Chat around 8:15 PM Eastern this Wednesday, December 15th to discuss the album.

As part of the album release, we at 8BitX are also holding a charity drive benefitting Child's Play. Tenchux is still a good ways away from his goal of $1,000, so if you're in a giving mood please hit up the donation site. Every little bit counts!
