  1. I've really enjoyed the Antstream service on the VCS and love the Tournaments and ongoing Challenges. Use this thread to to share your username, thoughts on active challenges and tournament rankings. Find me: SabertoothRetro
  2. For families, groups of gamers of varying interests and skill levels, nights out with friends (drinking/party games), and maybe even just because AirConsole is surprisingly good. Much better than I expected heading into the review, I figured it'd be mobile gaming on the VCS with all the baggage associated with it. Nope! Surprisingly dug it, and have to say this one might be the thing the relatively-not-a-gamer in your house might actually ask to play with you. Topic for elsewhere, but the whole time I was using this I kept thinking about the upcoming Intellivision Amico, its current positioning, and what its competition might be. Pretty interesting to think about, actually. I'd think if you have a couple of nights where you could get a group together for Cards Against Humanity style hanging out you'd easily justify the $23.99 year cost, or just drop a five for a month for the weekend. Price of a beer.
  3. XCloud and Amazon Luna apparently in the Atari OS now after the new update.
  4. Atari announced that they had partnered with Antstream Arcade. https://atarivcs.medium.com/here-come-the-games-7f50f5a17b85 Linking with them for e-sports activities is an interesting idea, although for me, I'm too old-school for e-sports activity. https://gaminglyfe.com/atari-and-antstream-arcade-invite-fans-to-participate-in-a-week-long-online-asteroids-challenge/ This was demo'd months ago, but now there are lots of videos on YouTube. Other videos, found by a search for "Atari VCS Antstream Arcade" on YouTube. e.g. * I am not connected to the Atari company, Antstream, or any related developer.
  5. I guess most people here have heard about the PiePacker project. If not, see below. https://www.piepacker.com/ PiePacker on the new Atari VCS - under AtariOS Just to confirm, PiePacker works really well, in Google Chrome, running under AtariOS. I was playing with a friend for a few hours tonight, but only dipped my toe in the water of the service so far. There are so many games already - I played one new, and one old via the emulation - that was Worms. (I do feel for sure, the Atari Jaguar version was better!) The modern controller was immediately recognised, although in some games there were some unexpected controller mappings - it different from the Xbox controller layout using Bluetooth, but I also used a wireless (USB dongle) Bluetooth controller with the VCS test. It's still in BETA so I'll report the differences in behaviour to them - but it's all cloud based. (I did not try either Atari VCS controllers via USB, where they also support the Xbox mode.) The VCS Classic controller was immediately recognised, but only up/down worked, and not the left/right, so the mapping for that to the PiePacker app needs to be adjusted - it's BETA. Although the Kickstarter has now closed, here is the link to that, just for historical details. They recently ran a Kickstarter, and I was a backer, and today got my "backer BETA-access". Prior to the Kickstarter, they had 100K (yes, 100,000) play-testers using it for some months! PiePacker Background If you don't have any idea what it is - it's a cloud service - to legally run multi-player retro and modern (or reimagined) classic games over the Internet - games which are not written for the Internet, of course, but playable in real-time over the Internet with friends on other platforms, just using Chrome, and with video and voice chat, where people want to do that. It ideal for pandemic times - playing together, even when we're apart - no special hardware to buy, or software to install. The "owner" just sends an invite to friends, and they can join, anytime, and join in the fun. My friends and family are not local, to come and sit on the sofa next to me - they're scattered across this country, Europe, and the USA, as for many people. There is OPTIONAL hardware called the PieReader (shown below) which takes a range of adapters (more will follow) to plug physical cartridges into, but no support for Atari yet. (Even an adapter for a CD unit could follow, but the hardware is not necessary to play.) I was in communication with the CEO, who's a very friendly guy with a great track-record. He said they are very keen to support the Atari VCS. Perhaps we'll see an Atari partnership! It's quite different to Antstream, but certainly complements it. I'd love to see it as an "app".
  6. Hi all, I have been using Google Stadia in Chrome on the new VCS, but I cannot try Amazon Luna. It seems that Amazon Luna (in beta release) is only available in the USA so far, so I can't try it. https://chromeunboxed.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-amazon-luna-cloud-gaming/ I wondered if anybody has signed up, or can sign-up, and try it, because it looks better than Stadia, in that it will have a bigger range of AAA titles available, for only $5.99 a month, compared to $9.99 and having to buy the big titles just like buying them individually like on PC and other consoles. It seems it should work fine, because it can run as a web-app in Google Chrome specifically now. The sign-up page is here, in case you are even eligible and want to try it. https://www.amazon.com/luna/landing-page Honestly, I'm not a fan of Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, in the way they're eating up markets and spitting them out. Most particularly I dislike Google's habit of killing services and apps so often, but hey, it's a reality. More and more services and infrastructure is going onto the cloud streaming.
  7. Although I personally like Indie games, installed locally, or Stadia of late, other ways to play games are also good, if I'm not using my Jaguar, Wii-U or hand-held. More options, are always good. Atari Partnered with AirConsole Cloud-Based Gaming Service. https://www.accesswire.com/597250/Atari-VCSTM-Partners-with-AirConsole-Cloud-Based-Gaming-Service-to-Offer-Over-150-Original-Single-Player-Casual-and-Multiplayer-Party-Games * This was on the new VCS from day one, but I'd like to see how it works with some controllers! * I've played with AirConsole, myself, and it's really so surprisingly good, but I tried the free service, for a racing game. For sure, a reliable Internet connection and decent speed is required. VCS, yes! If you don't know what AirConsole is, then here's a link. * I am not connected to the Atari company, or to AirConsole.
  8. So you can actually use Geforce Now through Chrome to play games from your Steam / Gog / Ubi Connect library. Though, much like Stadia on the VCS, it seems that controllers don't work yet and you'd have to use keyboard / mouse.
  9. Atari said in the past that supporting Google Stadia (and others) are part of their plan for the console. I run Google Stadia on a (less graphically powerful) mini-desktop PC running Linux, and it works well. This opens up lots of new games for a suitable machine - and new Atari VCS with Chrome should work, and it may also be that a new Stadia app is coming, but it should be possible already just from Chrome. https://store.google.com/product/stadia_games If you don't know what Stadia is, this was the launch event.
  10. I cannot seem to get the Atari controller to link into Stadia. I had heard the controllers will work. Anyone that can help with this?
  11. It was a surprise to me, because I didn't know these services offered streaming, but it seems that both Sony and Microsoft also offer streaming services, and work too. That just suggests even more the direction gaming is going, to hardware agnostic platforms. This was new to me, and I don't subscribe to the other services because I also don't have those consoles, and I don't want them, but if you have, this is extra versatility and an opportunity to play games you might already have in those game libraries too. To follow... the videos. I'll add details here when I found out more. Let me know, huh?
