Cover Story / Re: Atari VCS up for Preorder.
« on: October 10, 2019, 10:25:03 AM »
Been a while since this got updated. The VCS is nearing release for backers, currently slated for shipment in December, and pre-orders for everyone else are available at Walmart, GameStop, and the Atari VCS website.

Specs have changed, as well.
Partnering with AMD, a new APU has been developed for use with the VCS, as it will have (upgradable!) twin SODIMM DDR4 4GB RAM sticks (8GB total), and a slot for an M2 solid state hard drive to upgrade the internal memory. There are two USB 3.1 ports on the back, and two USB ports on the front (version not disclosed in the dev blog I read).

On the games side, there is a partnership with Antstream for access to a multitude of games, and third party games have not been released, as of yet.

One major thing that I noticed was a comment somewhere that the backers will be helping with the playtesting phase. We will be receiving pre-production firmware to test out and report on, to see if there are any bugs. As a slightly experienced coder, I'm kinda looking forward to that. ;)

I disagree. Why? Because the general populace is ignorant. And greatly afraid of linux. There is no valid reason behind it, but that's how it is.

There's also the fact that in general, most games that are getting high focus in the PC gaming arena are based off of Unreal or the other engine I can't remember the name of, and they're buggy as all hells, at times.

I don't own it myself, just yet, but I plan on getting it. They revealed a free DLC is coming soon at E3, so there's new content coming.

Aegis, I'm pretty sure everybody knows I'm partially blind by now. -_-

Meh, no wife, or child in my life. No real interaction with people, these days. I might be changing that in a minute detail, but I don't think my options are ever going to improve, sadly. But I am an uncle, and will soon be a great uncle! ;)

Also, Davers used to be Hounder. He requested his name be changed back in 2007, when we were still recording all that stuff.

Good to see you, Davers.

...don't we have a friend code list for Switch users?
*runs off to check*

Last time I heard anything from him was on IRC server (I might bet incirrect about it being a .org, though)

Oh, [email protected] It's the Flying Dutchman! ;D

I'm doing good, all things considered. How goes the child raising and married life? ')

Chris Miller should join the Discord server :o

I would certainly like to see someone doing something interesting with overhead fantasy. Nothing specific comes to mind though.

Amusingly enough, I'm working on an idea like that. However, I don't feel like it has enough substance to it. Still trying to work that out before I get anything coded. Plus graphics are a pain to get without moneys. :o

Don't support that console trash. They already scammed people who bought smart watches. High odds they'll scam you with the Atari console in one way or another.

As I said on Discord when you mentioned this on there, that Smartwatch scam was not from Atari. It is clearly marked as being started by someone else, operating as FMTwo Game Inc. Furthermore, the "Atari version" was listed as one of THREE versions. Check the campaign yourself here.

Please fact check your videos before you make claims of things like this, folks.

News / Discord? What's that?

Well, since I've gotten multiple requests over the years, I finally registered an account with Discord and set up a server (I hope). I'm new to this place, so bear with me if something is wrong.

Keep in mind that this is not intended for a replacement of the site. I have mentioned that I have something planned, and I do plan on implementing it, as soon as I'm comfortable with all the technology I plan on using for it. The Discord server is more of a replacement for the IRC server, really. We can chat in real time, like the good ole days (yes, I know, I'm old).
