All I can say is those guys like to blame us for everything-even viruses.  I think they ought to adopt a pet if they haven't have one yet and get matching attire for walks.

If you want people to understand that something is wrong, you need to be capable of articulating a refutation of the piece. 

 

Instead, they just keep the circle jerk going over it being "trolling" because the Reg points out the obvious.

 

 

Sadly, we are living in an era of fake news. Where those who don't want to hear uncomfortable truths will simply dismiss it out of hand. It's always existed but the inturdnet has helped bring it to the fore. There are some people who just won't be told.

Hospital?  Is that Brandy?  Seems odd, with mexican food.

It was a drink I poured before we had to take the little one to the hospital. It is just a cola and rum and doesn't go with the Mexican, but I'm not one to waste booze. That would be alcohol abuse and the alcohol didn't do anything to deserve that.

It has not been announced in the real world as well. ;)

Right, still an epidemic.  If it was a pandemic, we'd all be at home instead of at the taco factories.

Andrew,

 

I know you're reading this, so let's go over some of the highlights of this "trash-piece."

 

Quote

It has been two-and-a-half years since Atari said it would relaunch its iconic VCS console – initially called the Ataribox

True. The Ataribox was announced in the summer of 2017, two and a half years ago.

 

Quote

The company had no blueprints, no plans, and no hardware staff at the time

Unconfirmed. All we ever saw was the 3-D render of the case, but they could have had some notes and sketches scribbled on bar napkins somewhere.

 

Quote

It promised the console would launch in December 2017

True. Atari initially said the box would launch in late 2017.

 

Quote

representatives popped up at the Games Developer Conference...to show an empty plastic box as evidence of a real product.

True. Arzt invited media to his hotel room to show off an empty console shell and some non-functioning controllers.

 

Quote

rather than a games console, it will basically be a mid-range PC in a box.

True. Atari even started calling it the "un-console"

 

I could go on, but you get the picture and I've sort of gotten bored with this whole venture. The Register didn't even mention the fake Tempest video or the PC playing Borderlands while surrounded by empty VCS cases at E3 last year. So if most of what the article says is true, how exactly is it troll fodder?

In all the hullabaloo about Atari Hotels, and the possibility that maybe they're closer to manufacturing (even if they keep recycling the same update with slightly more detail each time), no one is talking about the single biggest development in the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise history. Hang on to your butts. Nothing will prepare you for the

Atari® Releases RollerCoaster Tycoon® Story — First Match-3 Puzzle Game in the
Acclaimed RollerCoaster Tycoon® Series on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and
Android Devices

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  -- Atari® — one of the world’s  most 
iconic  consumer  brands  and  interactive  entertainment  producers  —  today 
announced the  release of  RollerCoaster Tycoon®  Story, a  brand-new  match-3 
puzzle game  in the acclaimed  RollerCoaster Tycoon® series. Available now  on 
iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and  Android devices, RollerCoaster Tycoon Story  is 
an exciting  free-to-play match-3  puzzler  featuring the  series’  first-ever 
story campaign that lets players walk in the shoes of a theme park tycoon!

Welcome to RollerCoaster Tycoon Story! The legendary Eagleland theme park  has 
fallen into despair and disarray, guests  have gone, and no cries of  laughter 
or glee can  be heard from  within its gates.  It’s up to  players to  restore 
Eagleland to its former glory as a thriving theme park!

“We’re delighted to introduce  RollerCoaster Tycoon Story –  a new chapter  of 
casual gameplay based on the most popular theme park game in the world,”  said 
Tony Chien,  VP  of Marketing  for  Atari. “Adding  a  story-driven  campaign, 
hundreds of puzzles,  and a unique  rail match system  offers an entirely  new 
experience  for  a  brand-new  audience,  while  offering  a  wholly  new  and 
refreshing approach for existing fans of the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise.”

To download RollerCoaster Tycoon Story, please visit:

  o App Store
  o Google Play

RollerCoaster Tycoon Story features an  innovative rail match system in  which 
players earn tickets  that can  be used to  complete tasks  such as  repairing 
rides, cleaning up the park grounds, and rebuilding shops. With the help of  a 
charming cast of characters,  such as Sam  the dependable maintenance  worker, 
players will restore  the luster  to Eagleland theme  park, unraveling  hidden 
mysteries, and meeting new characters along the way.

Additional Key Features Include:

    to complete fun puzzles or earn powerful boosters. Complete complex
    puzzles and unlock special items including the famous Screechin’ Eagle
    booster

  o Exciting Story: Finish each round to progress through the storyline and
    advance to the next level. As you continue to play, additional zones of
    the park will unlock revealing classic RollerCoaster Tycoon rides like the
    Steel Mini Coaster 

  o Renovate and Decorate: Improve sections of your park by removing debris,
    adding decorations, and investing in research to further upgrade rides,
    attractions, and more

  o Endearing Characters: Interact with multiple characters including Sam the
    maintenance worker, Maggie the mechanic, Tyler the panda mascot
    entertainer, and many others

  o Daily Rewards: Earn bonus rewards each day for restored rides and
    attractions. The more rides that are operational, the more money earned

  o Leaderboards: Top the global leaderboards and compete against friends

Based on RollerCoaster Tycoon, one of the best-selling franchises in PC gaming
history, RollerCoaster Tycoon Story is the latest entry in the series and  the 
first to introduce a single player storyline. RollerCoaster Tycoon was created
by legendary game developer Chris Sawyer  and first released on Windows PC  in 
1999. The  series quickly  became  a fan  favorite for  gamers.  RollerCoaster 
Tycoon Story was  developed by Graphite  Lab and is  available now on  iPhone, 
iPad, and iPod touch, and Android devices.

Not sure how you saw the pop-up so clearly but yeah, that makes sense since they appear to have Chromium installed. 

Bit of a party trick. I have really bad eyesight without my glasses so I'm used to reading blurry words without much effort.

It’s up to you to restore Atari to its former glory as a thriving gaming, computing and entertainment company! (or finally put it out of its misery)"

Edited for clarity. Feeling perturbed, tonight.

Hence,  I will finish with this taco of wisdom ....

As an old name in gaming, their home side is quite lackluster these days. But Konami is alive and well in the arcade business over in Japan (and the gambling sector as FM mentioned...also their health club businesses still do well). Atari SA wishes they could muster up a micron of respect, recognition & money that Konami still has, and Konami has people in the company to engineer both hardware and software(whereas *everything* currently made to the Atari name is outsourced). Some of their games make their way over to the US (at Round1USA locations), but the problem is that they all require too much skill from the current crop of US players, or the games are too weird, being that they're almost entirely focused on rhythm games, so only appeal to a niche of the gaming market. One exception to the rhythm game is the new - and fairly odd - Armored Princess Battle Conductor (jump to 20:25 in this video to see the trailer; the unique game cabinet is shown at 22:45) :

 

 

Bonus: Two other brand new pieces of hardware and software from the House of Konami that were unveiled the other day, Pop'n Music Welcome To Wonderland and Jubeat 2020

 

On top of that, Konami just announced a new series of eSports gaming PCs called the Arespear. While they'll certainly cost a lot more than a VCS, they are doing more than just making a pretty case, as they've designed a new sound card via their department that creates the arcade sound games & sound systems used in the cabinets; their own specialized headphones and keyboards.  All the models are designed to push 120FPS gaming as a standard and are going to be used in Konami's upcoming arcade games like the new Beatmania IIDX 27. And to top it off, you'll have the power to stream and game like never before! :P

Calling a match-3 puzzle game "story" is genius!

I'm eagerly waiting for Bandon Harris' clever analysis.

"Great business move with excellent customer potential for gaming quality!"

 

I started yesterday's gaming festivities off playing Castlevania Rondo of Blood, Valis 2, and then went on to Halo.  It boggles my mind that there are people who's gaming Holy Grail is a system that will have mobile games for exclusives.   Isn't that what they say about the Amico when they bash it?

That is one of the things people complain about. Atari would be lucky to even get some mobile quality games on it at this point.

Yeah, that would be so lucky to get Angry Birds or Clash of Clans.  Instead they get a "Vault" of games that have been released in compilation packages on every generation, and a shoddy streaming service.  Yay.
