In perhaps the strangest news we’ve ever had, Atari is going to build a bunch of hotels that provide a “…unique lodging experience combining the iconic brand with a one-of-a-kind video game-themed destination”. No word yet if every room will have it’s own Atari 2600.

In other news:

  • Torchlight Frontiers gets a name change (and a bunch of other changes too)
  • Don’t let Square Enix cancel your FF7 pre-order
  • There are strong rumors about a KOTOR remake
  • Toss a Coin to The Witcher on Spotify
  • Get your refund for your Mac or Linux copy of Rocket League now
  • Sometimes All It Takes to Win a Pokemon Tournament is to Enter
  • I guess you don’t have to worry about violating the civil rights of trolls in games anymore

What We’re Playing

Colby: Stardew Valley, Super Lucky’s Tale
Cliff: My Time at Portia, Stardew Valley (which has sold more than 10 million copies)
Dylan: Disco Elysium, Divinity Original Sin 2


Vinny: Create a reality TV show based off one video game franchise? What is it and what’s it about?

Turndwn4wut: What passive ability in video games have you always wanted in real life?

JoeColeslaw: If you could have a game change its pov… what game would it be? 1st person to 3rd, isometric to 1st?

Mister Polite: Is there something you take great pride that would be unusual.  For example, when I give blood the person always says “you have good veins,” and then it’s one poke and the blood flows.

Diablo or Bob Ross?
