The Atari Games You Are Looking For

TCW Podcast Episode 116 - The Atari Games You Are Looking For

 

In this episode we continue our tradition of looking at Atari!  This time a deep look at Atari Games.  We look at the company starting with it's acquisition by Namco.  We look at its progression through the 80's and 90's with many notable games.  Unfortunately during the Siliwood era Atari was reacquired by Time Warner.  After limited success the remnants of the company were sold off to Williams' where the name of Atari was given up in a legal dispute with Hasbro.
