  1. Review: Like Video Games and Archaeology? You’ll Really Dig Atari: Game Over

    Press start.

    As we noted in our interview with Atari: Game Over director Zak Penn yesterday, if you've heard about this movie before, then it's pretty likely that you already think you know what it's about. Here's the thing, though: you really don't know the half of it.

  4. Atari: Game Over Documentary Trailer Makes the E.T. Video Game Look Fun for the First Time Ever

    And if it's not, we can always just toss it back in that hole.

    At first glance, this trailer about a bunch of buried cartridges of a really terrible game might look a tad overdramatic, but there's an incredibly interesting story about the video game industry's near dissolution lying just under that initial impression. Luckily, Microsoft didn't bury all of its Xbox TV content in the desert when they axed Xbox Entertainment Studios, and this documentary will premiere on Xbox Live in the fall.

  5. Denny’s Is Remixing Atari Games Into Breakfast-Themed Slices of Weirdness


    Today in "What is this? Why is this?": Denny's, that bastion of fine American cuisine, has teamed up with Atari to provide the teeming masses with some free mobile games. Their titles: Centipup, Take-Out, and Hashteroids. I think I'm in love. And also hungry. But not for Denny's. Ew. IHOP all the way.

  8. Plan to Exhume Millions of E.T. Atari Cartridges Put on Hold Over Environmental Concerns

    Maybe this is a sign that this terrible game should stay buried?

    Last June, we told you about a documentary film crew that planned to excavate a long-closed landfill rumored to be the final resting place of millions of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Atari game cartridges.

  9. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pulled From Sale While Publishers And Developers Duke It Out

    Well, guess we'll have to wait and see where the pieces fall in the end.

    The Enhanced Edition of the classic RPG Baldur's Gate has been removed from digital shelves at the Apple App Store and on the website of its developer, Beamdog. According to Beamdog's president Trent Oster, the game has been taken down "at our publishing partner's request as we attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues," the details of which they are legally prohibited from discussing. The legal dispute will prevent the release of the Android version, which has been expected for months, and a major patch for the game, and will send the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate II plummeting into development hell. Excuse me, development Baator.
