Art of Atari review

Art of Atari
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Tim Lapetino
Foreword by Ernest Cline
Afterword by Robert V. Conte
Dynamite Entertainment
Publication Date: October 25, 2016

Art of Atari, a lavish book which covers all things visually historic and celebratory regarding the storied, pioneering video game company, is out in bookstores now, and without question, if there ever was a must-have book for the video game zealot, the pop culture maven, or the scores of gamers in between, this is it.

Absolutely essential from cover to cover and irresistible in its one-two dazzling punch with its presentment of facts and a literal overstuffed yet 100 percent effective usage of photos containing pretty much every single facet of the company’s output that required some sort of art, Art of Atari leaves no stone un-turned, not even the most minute pebble. From the packaging of the boxes for its line of 2600 VCS games to the sides and front of its successful and now almost legendary line of arcade coin-op games, and advertisements that stretched from stark simple white background designs with a spectrum of colorful game boxes to the most rebel rousing and sensory lifting art of the highest caliber, it’s all showcased this hardcover tome, and then some.

‘Space Invaders’ Is The Next Classic Game To Get A Movie Treatment

The Movie God   |  @   |

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last decade or two, you know that Hollywood will make a movie based on pretty much any video game, toy, or theme park ride. It’s something that we’ve grown used to over the years, and sometimes the movies actually end up being a lot of fun.

The next classic game to get the movie treatment is one that any game fan born before 1990 has most likely played at least once in their lifetime: Space Invaders.

The arcade game comes from designer Tomohiro Nishikado, and was first released by Japanese company Taito Corporation in 1978, and then in the United States through Midway Games.

Recognizer InvasionThe t-shirt deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel today mashes up the TRON movies with the classic arcade game Space Invaders in “Recognizer Invasion.”

The tee, by artist HHNCARRIE, is on sale at RIPT only for today, Saturday, December 4, 2010 until tomorrow at 1AM EST.

The t-shirt is available in both men’s and women’s sizes for $10. Kids sizes are $15; Onesies are $18. You can also get the design on a Hoodie for $38 (in Men/Unisex sizes).

The black shirt design takes the set up of the game Space Invaders, but instead shooting at aliens, it’s at Recognizers, the hovering vehicles from the TRON films. The Recognizers form the letter T, while the blockades you have to shoot through here are in the form of the Tron Identity Disks. At the top, in the center for the high score is 198200, representing the year the original movie came out; the score for Player 1 is 2010, which is when Tron Legacy will be released.
