Between a Dr’s appointment today and getting some new games that have been occupying my time, I was unable to properly finish this post – my apologies to the SR management as well as to you the readers.
I played some games on my Atari 7800 this week along with a few of my arcade games and Manticore: Galaxy under fire on the Switch. How about you?
Star Wars Day Is My Favorite Fake Holiday For The 1st Week Of May – Direct footage from the Star Wars Battle Pod game
The Aquatic Update For Minecraft Will Be The “Last” For Previous Gen Console Editions – Barring future bug fixes I imagine
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Launches Exclusively To Arcades – I know many a gamer who will be clamoring for this to come to consoles but but careful what you wish for – many times that demand is made then disappointment sets in when the buyer realizes that it isn’t a 100+ hour narrative progression of a made-for-game-console movie so no one buys it. For those that don’t care about that and happen to have an arcade near them that keeps up-to-date with the latest releases, it’s a real treat.
Atari Continues To Out-Chameleon Coleco – The saga of the “Atari VCS” continues and now we know a game it will have! It’ll also totally go up for pre-order on Indiegogo this time, for realsies!
A platform that supposedly can handle 4K @ 60FPS (no proof of that yet) will be coming with Atari Vault! Click on that link to buy it now for only $9.99! It’s the only thing Atari has released in recent memory with any semblance of positive reviews, not that creating a compilation of emulated classics that they had already made before is a challenge to make.
Between this fart of an announcement and the GDC fiasco, the press seems to have finally caught on that this is all just a shameless cash grab by a company run by hacks who only have a talent for milking nostalgia well beyond the past due date. At least this means that the poor Atari Jaguar will no longer be the butt of Atari-related jokes…
Cross Play Between The Switch And Xbox One On Crazy Justice – “Why can’t we be friends?” (and on and on and on as that lazy song goes :P)
Facebook Hoping Oculus Go Is The Answer – For $200, the hope of billions in VR investments stays alive but that doesn’t correct the other issues VR has that we’ve discussed before #micdrop. This becomes the PC answer to Sony’s PSVR. Is it enough?
Water Based Batteries To The Rescue? – I thought that Keanu Reeves starred in a movie about water-based batteries back in the 90s but I could be wrong.
Incredibly nerdy fashion…for traditional Japanese women:
