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...

 
 
ATARI REBOOT photo

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...

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

Atari just announced a new Asteroids game. No, you guys, I'm being serious. Stop laughing!  Asteroids: Outpost, as it's called, is described as an open-world MMO with survivalist gameplay. The experience casts players in the role of co...

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...

Atari is rebooting the Alone in the Dark franchise

Horror this, horror that. 2014 is going to be known for the year the horror genre really took off again. Presumably because games like Slender Man, Outlast, and more have made some of the bigger companies realize there's real inte...

RollerCoaster Tycoon World announced for PC

RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile was a hot mess, representing some of the worst traits of mobile and free-to-play gaming, but we knew that Atari was planning a PC game as well, one that promised to be different from the mobile title. Here are...

Holy Moons over My Hammy! While Denny's is remixing their foods as part of their new Greatest hits Remixed menu promotion they're also working with Atari to create some pretty weird videogame/food remixes. Expect flying hash brows and syrup...

Check out this 3-hour chunk of Primal Rage 2 gameplay

I don't know about you, but I have a very primal sort of rage about me when I dwell on the fact that I hadn't seen footage of Primal Rage 2 already. Luckily, there's a gaming mecca in Brookfield, Illinois that goes by the name of Galloping...

Primal Rage 2 exists and it's playable in an arcade

I had no idea! There was a Primal Rage 2, but it was never finished. Still, there are at least a couple arcade boards in existence of a prototype version, and Brookfield, Illinois-based Galloping Ghost Arcade has acquired one of them. It's...

Enjoy some video of the E.T. landfill excavation

As you may have heard, one of gaming's great urban legends was confirmed over the weekend. Atari did, in fact, dump a large quantity of retail copies of E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial (and other games) in a New Mexico landfill and -- al...

E.T. Atari cartridges found in New Mexico landfill

The legends are true. This weekend in Alamogordo, New Mexico, excavators uncovered the mythical cache of E.T. Atari 2600 cartridges, which were long rumored to have been dumped in the desert during the videogame crash of 1983.  The ada...

Human Head has taken over development on Minimum for TimeGate

TimeGate Studios was making a free-to-play third-person combat game called Minimum that seemed like it had potential. It continues to despite the fact that its creator went through bankruptcy. Now, publisher Atari has "worked with TimeGate...

We're all invited to the Atari E.T. landfill excavation

In 1983, Atari buried unsold E.T. the Extra Terrestrial copies in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Now, it's (finally) being dug up and turned into a mini-documentary courtesy of Xbox Entertainment Studios. The event takes place April ...

 
 
Story Bundle photo

The eBook Video Game Bundle is out now

The previous videogame-themed collection of eBooks from Story Bundle kept me well read for quite some time, so I'm more than ready to dip into the new 3.0 bundle. There's some really eye-catching titles in the bundle, including two books th...

Atari says a new RollerCoaster Tycoon in the works for PC

RollerCoaster Tycoon was announced for iOS this past week. The response was as expected, and our own Jordan Devore in particular was pretty bummed out that it was coming just for mobile devices. Well turn that frown upside down, mister! Ata...
