  1. Atari isn't really doing the hotel, of course. It's just another licensing agreement: this time to True North Studio of Phoenix, Arizona. Pretty peachy sign-on deal for Atari, too:
  2. My Sept. 2017 Moto X4 is 2.2 GHz, 3GB RAM and 32GB flash. Brand new I think it cost $350-$399, but it's 2020 and unlocked versions go for $139. I don't think that's the Amico's draw, though. People wonder why there are no exclusive AtariVCS games to coerce them into buying the console. Well, now we have a console that is exclusively exclusives. The very low-end specs may not even matter.
  3. AA needs a "horrified" reaction. 🥺 😆
  4. Footbath posts are still gone. Disappointing. Satire happens when subjects are verboten but also when they are mockworthy. This was both. Users here routinely mock the Atari Jaguar for looking like a toilet. If your new console reminds people of a footbath, don't blame them. As far as I can remember, the "Mods in the back pocket" crap was started by Jaybird. Posts have been hidden and my memory could be failing me, but I think it's important to state. @JBerel 's writings two posts up from that only asks what a YouTuber was given to so radically change his mind. Nothing about mods was mentioned. Of course things may have escalated after banning in Amico thread. I remain convinced some bannings were unjustified. That's when Jaybird's "back pocket" idea creeps in and, like @The Historian , we might wonder about the special treatment. I'm a little sad TT is not sponsoring his thread. 😞 I can also appreciate that mods are as fallible as we mere mortals, even if a mod won't admit as much. And lastly, we did not run TT off. We even told him we appreciated his viewpoint! He finally met some very mild resistance then threw a fit and took his toys home. One thing you'll find in common with most of his "haters" is how we say he seems to be doing a lot right. Weird. Anyway, I'm sure @CPUWIZ wanted this discussion to end with his post. I'm truly sorry for continuing it, and if he feels it should be deleted then so be it. I am grateful for the hard work all of the mods, including Jaybird, put into keeping the ship afloat.
  5. Hi @Swami! Just wanted to let you know you're in the "New Atari Console that Ataribox?" thread!
  6. Sweet! I'll check in the morning to see if you put the footbath posts back up.
  7. Guy who banned several users in Amico thread complains about our using analogies in this one. Where are we allowed to voice concerns, then? Not there; not here. I don't think any of you are bought--and-paid-for by Tallarico, but this slavish watching out for his best interests has become sickening. Nobody blocked Tallarico from coming here and discussing concerns. He threw a hissy fit and left. It seems he's only interested in this thread when he can sell something. Weird.
  8. Did the owner of a footbath company come in and report all of our footbath posts? Is this really the line not to be crossed in this thread? If footbaths are off topic, I'm sure we could start a new thread. Considering how the footbath started doing very similar things as Atari, it doesn't really seem off topic to me. Or at least is worthy of discussion.
  9. You guys following on Facebook need to post these gems! I only occasionally check the page:
  10. LoL at this clickbait headline for that video:.
  11. Feeling a bit long-in-the-tooth; like a TV show going on one season too long.
  12. They ran stock AtariVault footage over the most interesting part: Artz having trouble navigating the UI. He says they are on track for shipping in March, which means they misled with the whole "Weeks, not months" thing. Not that it matters at all since supporters just want to get something. He also says there are 31 days in March, so we can throw out the first 30 days. The Windows activation watermark can be seen on the Borderlands gameplay. That's not proof of anything, but to me it indicates they are at least not running it on a Windows laptop. Probably filmed in two locations: Kingston booth and Atari meeting room (or PowerA hospitality suite). +1000 Internet points for ignoring the "Do not touch" signs and playing with the joystick. Well done, sir!
  13. It sounds like the Stadia numbers went up: 175,000 in the first fortnight. Over 550,000 as of Jan 15th. The IOS app only allows account access and not streaming, so the numbers may still be inflated.
