Old-school players may recall Warlords as one of the most addicting four-player Atari games ever created, and now it's getting the modern-day respect it deserves with a 21st century remake heading to the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Atari and Cryptic Studios are readying an online D&D roleplaying game set in the besieged city of Neverwinter.
It all comes full circle for Nolan Bushnell, the man who created Atari almost 40 years ago but later sold it away and subsequently left. Now he's back at the company as a member of the board of directors.
Atari has confirmed that its long-awaited Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be a Massively Open Online Racing (MOOR) game.
There is not much of a plot: shoot the falling bombs before they hit the blue blocks (i.e., "cities") at the bottom of the screen. It's not exactly the "high concept" that Hollywood usually seeks, but Atari seems to think their vintage arcade game could make a captivating flick.
Microsoft has announced that its "Game Room" application, a virtual arcade that will invade the Xbox 360 community, will be availale on March 24.
