100-game Atari collection is coming to Steam

Spring 2016

The wolf in sheep's clothing masquerading around as Atari nowadays has announced "Atari Vault," a new compilation of at least 100 classic Atari games coming to Steam sometime this spring.

The bundle, which includes Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Tempest, and Warlords, advertises an upgraded user interface, controller support, online multiplayer, and leaderboards.

While the package will provide a nice opportunity for many people to experience these games for the first time, it's just the latest in a long line of cash grabs from a company that has survived by exploiting its licenses for years, making sad reboots that miss the point (Alone in the Dark) and inexplicably tarnishing Asteroids' legacy by turning the franchise into a buggy open-world MMO.

At any rate, Atari Vault will be playable next week at PAX South in San Antonio, Texas.
