    AlamoAtari got a reaction from Ballblaɀer in The Art of Atari book   
    For anyone still on the fence, here is a review I saw on YouTube. John Riggs don't know much about Atari, more of a Nintendo guy, but he has the book and flips through it.

    Hey guys I found this game being developed by what I think is a student as a side project. It's neat to see how he has steadily progressed. Check it out!

    AlamoAtari reacted to Ballblaɀer in Atari I/O Interviews _Art of Atari_ Author Tim Lapetino   
    With the Art of Atari book release now right around the corner (tomorrow!) I'm pleased to present an interview that I did with the book's author, Tim Lapetino, on behalf of the site.  Huge thanks to Tim for his participation and his willingness to give thorough and informative answers.  We hope to have Tim join us for a Wednesday night chat in the near future -- stay tuned for details on that.
     
    I'm now watching my post office box like a hawk for my copy of the book!  I intend to post a review once I've had the chance to read it cover to cover -- I don't imagine it will take me long, as this has been circled on my calendar for months. 
     
    Looking forward to hearing everyone's thoughts about Art of Atari!

    One more nail into the hate column is no backward compatibility, this is going to be an issue with the ds gamers in my opinion. Can only hope for an adapter.

    My guess would be no. It looks like the bulk of the electronics is in the device. I don't think that they have the same idea as the Wii U on this one.

    I just see it as a gimmick, not really good at doing both home and hand held consoles and falling way short of expectations. The processor is looking like it would box developers into a corner. Nintendo does processors on the cheap and the ones that company has is a bit ho hum. I hope that I'm wrong, but it looks like the classic console would outsell the switch. That would be embarrassing.

    Yup, I'm doing it again and trying to get an even greater head start this time around.
    Since the next Atari Day will happen right after Turkey Day, the theme this time around is 2600 games with birds in them.
    I will count the results in a week or two, so vote today!

    A buddy of mine picked up both Atari Flashback Discs for the PS4. He's currently a vendor at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo so he let me borrow them while he's away. I've been playing Super Breakout and I'm on top of the leader boards for cavity and double! How wonder how long I'll be there. I'm guessing not long really.

    Though nothing solid I am hearing an Nvidia Tegra variant?

    I did find THIS posted in a few articles. TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT UNTIL CONFIRMED.
     
     Nintendo Switch specifications
    After Nvidia's last showing with the RSX chip on the PS3, the Nintendo Switch will be sporting a custom Tegra processor, another leak that has come true. According to Nvidia, it's a "high-efficiency scalable processor includes an Nvidia GPU based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards." The idea is, according to the company, to allow blistering fast to the mainstream, building NVN - a new API to make this possible, along with a new physics engine, advanced game tools, and libraries to boot. Though nothing has been said of its raw performance numbers, its developer kits allegedly sport the following specifications:
    Four ARM Cortex-A57 cores, max 2GHz Nvidia second-generation Maxwell architecture 256 CUDA cores, max 1GHz, 1024 FLOPS/cycle 4GB RAM (25.6 GB/s, VRAM shared) 32 GB storage (Max transfer 400 MB/s) USB 2.0 and  3.0 1280 x 720 6.2-inch IPS LCD 1080p at 60 fps or 4k at 30 fps max video output Capcitance method, 10-point multi-touch

    Considering a lot of them aren't even tested yet reach full price does seem kind of insane, especially since very well most items being donated simply do not work. Seeing the Jaguar units exceed $200 blows my mind.
