RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...   read

Spectacular Minecraft build emulates the Atari 2600

We've shown you some impressive Minecraft projects before, but this one takes things to a whole new level. Minecraft has been great for people who want to look backwards at the history of video games. It's easy...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World hits Steam Early Access

RollerCoaster Tycoon World has been a long time coming, and it's still not here yet -- not fully. After multiple delays and even some development studio switching on publisher Atari's end, the game released today on Steam Early Access with ...   read

100-game Atari collection now available on PC

Remember when Atari games used to be good? Yeah, me neither. It was before my time, you see. I'm more familiar with the Atari that has spent the past couple decades floundering, changing hands, bullying indies, and remaining afloat by explo...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World is having its first beta this weekend

After the diabolical mess that was RollerCoaster Tycoon 4, the idea of a new, proper game in the series to follow it up is both exciting and utterly terrifying. RollerCoaster Tycoon World has been passed around three different studios, with...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World will make it this year

If there's one game left this year that I truly hope turns out well, it's RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Now that Atari is on its third developer, Nvizzio Creations, and has a release date (December 10, 2015), my hope is that everything will f...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks way better

The last time I wrote about RollerCoaster Tycoon World, I said the game looked bad. Because, well, it did. I was hardly the only one, writer or otherwise, to say as much. Atari certainly heard. Flash forward to now, and we've got a far bett...   read

Atari's buggy, unfinished Asteroids MMO is out now

Atari has taken a break from bullying indie developers to release Asteroids: Outpost, a gross and twisted cash-in on the beloved space shooter that first delighted arcade patrons in 1979. The "open world sandbox survival game" landed on Ste...   read

Devs explain why the RollerCoaster Tycoon World trailer looked like ass

In case you missed it, we recently got a glimpse of the new RollerCoaster Tycoon installment and oh boy did it look like complete dog shit. Granted, graphics aren't the biggest expectation when it comes to a game like this, but in 2015, th...   read

Atari bullying indie developer behind Tempest 2000

Atari thought it was "absolutely rubbish," the Jaguar designer told developer Jeff Minter in 1993. The man felt compelled to pull Minter aside at the console's launch party and let him know how little Atari thought of Minter's latest creati...   read

Sweet closure: Blade Kitten adds Episode 2 DLC years after its debut

Back in 2010, Atari published Blade Kitten, a middling sidescrolling action-platformer about a bounty hunter who is both a human and a cat. In the years since, developer Krome Studios (Ty the Tasmanian Tiger) acquired the rights to the game...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks rough

Mmm. There's no getting around it: RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks bad. I thought my expectations for the graphics were reasonable -- I've seen screenshots and they seemed adequate, if dated -- but in motion everything has become clear. Y...   read

What old Atari games do you want to see rebooted?

Asteroids is back. Well, sort of. Atari (or whatever company is calling itself Atari these days) is reviving the classic 1979 shooter as an open-world survival MMO for some reason. Money, probably. Also a complete and utter lack of sha...   read

Atari is making a new Asteroids game (Yes, really!)

Devious smile: 'Mishaps' can occur in RollerCoaster Tycoon World

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me. Shoulda coulda...   read

Atari is rebooting the Alone in the Dark franchise
