Next time you post a stool sample, can we get a spoiler/NSFW tag, please? That one had nuts in it and everything.

You don't want to imagine the tunes it made coming out...

News from the IGG comments.

It's copied from Atari's Facebook post:

BTW: I noticed Atari deleted this Facebook comment thread after responding for some reason:

Wow, the Atari Box is finally showing off its stuff to the public by demoing its ability to run Anstream.

... which is something my six-year-old Galaxy S5 can do with ease. So I am more then a little underwhelmed if this is the best they have to show on the system. Not exactly fulfilling the 'Game, Stream and Connect like never before' promise.

It still will be quite interesting to finally hear some first hand, non-vetted reports on the system and how well it actually runs.

As for the backers, I sympathize with them a bit over this.

.. but at the same time I am getting a lot of entertainment as a spectator for this non-stop trainwreck of a project!

Reminder that Antstream doesn't have a Linux app, so they'll still have to run it on Windows or under Wine. Or they have a Linux build in progress which will probably manage to break GPL because Atari is clever that way. 

 

I'm half-expecting them to stand at the front of the line with pen and paper (NDAs) for people to sign before going hands-on. Or that "hands-on" is the same thing we saw from that softball CES video where the guy got to hold a controller. How riveting.

Do you think they'll show something that one couldn't play on the Switch?

Or most consoles released from the mid 90's onward?

Ehh… I just find it annoying to have to sync my controllers up with my PC all the time. Then you gotta charge them when the battery is low, and after a while the built-in rechargeable battery actually gets permanently weaker. :P I'd rather just stick with a USB controller if I'm given the option to.

I'm guessing the AtariVCS fanboys love hot dogs.

I feel the need to interject that hot dog tacos are absolutely a thing.

In their defense, I would not recommend the use of wireless controllers for public exhibitions... ;)

(I took part to several dozens of video game exhibitions)

I love both tacos and hot dogs but prefer hot dogs because they don't give me diarrhea... does that make me less of a dragon? lol

Here's a Tweet with a video of someone playing a VCS.  Looks like Fatal Fury 2.

 

 

"Hey, we're finally going to show this off in some kind of non-controlled public setting, which game should we show for it?"

"Well, definitely nothing that would be an Atari game, THAT would be crazy! Let's show something slow and available on everything."

"Ok, should we mention something about the progress on production? The natives are getting restless"

"Mums the word!"

Yep that is indeed Fatal Furty 2  So congrats VCS, you can do the exact same thing my $79 Retro Pie can do.

So can't Antsream make it look pretty with some side art or something? I can do this with a vanilla Pi install :)
