I'll actually be in the area, but there's no way I'm going to a pop-up "gamers lifestyle event." Dcave? More like Dbag. 

 

There can't be much crossover appeal between this e-sports stuff and the "mostly broken PC running Atari VCS emulator" scene, can there?

Cool, they can show off Antstream and Netflix.

You think they got a booth or just a hotel room?

Well, if you're a backer, this is incredibly good news.

Why two? Because they only have two that work. 

 

They sure are desperate for attention though. Much like a naughty child. Or my neighbours.

At least until they unpack the DO NOT TOUCH signs from their case. 

 

After all, they never said it's the attendees going hands-on.

That depends on:

  1. Is the booth cheaper?
  2. Is there enough room in the booth for them to sleep in it overnight?

To keep this thread on topic. I had some really good taco Tuesday dollar tacos for dinner. I actually had two of them and know they did exist. But what will Atari show off? I bet they just use 2 Flashback X and hope no one notices.

If anyone goes there, they can probably take a along a Converse shoe box boasting they have a prototype. 

If you have one CPUWiz had a post in the WTB section for a prototype.

This video is six years old, almost to the day. It was a campaign in India to discourage public defecation.

(I couldn't find a good gif of Dracula melting away to light, so I should've just dropped it and done the Wicked Witch instead:

Pfft.  That's just lazy.  Your sounding like AtacoSA Shag.  "We couldn't show an actual working VCS, so we dropped it and used a shoebox running a Raspberry Pi instead."

It appears the Atari intern got confused when making the booking.

... and nothing of late from our beloved king pigeon, Johnny Phelan?  😕  I think Mr Cheesnais should start worrying and make sure all his doors and windows are closed at night.

Kind of surprised this hotel joke hasn't been made yet.  Though I think I may have done it for a previous years' E3 post.  Too old to remember.

Next they will announce a delay because they got a virus... like the "Core-OnAh" virus... it corrupts cores in your processor you know... but they are still working hard around the clock to get these out to the backers!  Stay TUNED!  Norton will have an anti-virus update for Atari in WEEKS!  Not months... :)

I liked your post anyways. It is a classic, and clowns are appropriate for this three ring circus in the middle of the f--k up farm.

Nice alliteration, it would make for a fine 1980s game. Oh look, here's one now.
