Our new High Score Squad Challenge is up. We're dedicating the month of September to the memory of Ken Siders. In celebration of Ken's life, we will be hosting TWO High Score Squad Challenges during the month of September: b*nQ will run through Sep 15th, and Beef Drop will run from Sep 16th - 30th. http://forums.atari.io/index.php/topic/3462-squad-challenge-bnq-atari-7800/

ATTN: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be announced later this weekend. We're making a last minute change to the lineup and want to get it right. Thanks! http://forums.atari.io/index.php/topic/3397-squad-challenge-pac-man-atari-2600/?p=35693

I'm about a week away from having my dream retro machine in my hands. (Modded OG Xbox with 2TB HD FILLED with emulators & ROMs). Of course, I'm going to be away all of next weekend. :(

A fighting game that people thought was okay 20 years ago now has a website dedicated to destroying every last copy in existence. Does Shaq Fu really deserve that, or do people exaggerate how bad it is? Find out on this new episode of Dreamcast Gamer! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZF18qVEonM

    The internet is full of nonsense. I wouldn't take it too seriously.

    Nice review atarilbc! I remember the first time reading that "Super Burnout" was coming out for the Jaguar, I misread it as "Super Breakout" and thought.. wow, really? :)

It's nights like this I miss the chats. Looking forward to their return in the future!

    Understood Justin. I don't think we want you to go through any expense or trouble, or wipe the forums. My thought would be to try one of the external chat providers and then just provide a link via a "sticky" forum post.

    I agree with Rick. I don't blame you at all Justin and don't want you to feel pressured to start from scratch again just to add a chat.

    Yea, man, Atari I/O has a lot of topic history to have to start from scratch again. And I know setting one of these up is a pain in the rear. Find an outside alternative. Maybe setup an Atari I/O twitch channel. They have chat.

Best wishes to our friends in TX and LA bracing for the hurricane. I've been through many and can empathize. You're in our thoughts this week!
