    speaking of PCs:

    https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articl...ns-linux.10418

    It will use an AMD customized processor, with Radeon Graphics technology. This likely means a proper CPU for a desktop and not an ARM chip like found in other devices. It runs Linux, but they will be customizing the interface as it's mainly aimed at using it like a console on a TV. Even so, they say it will give a "full PC experience for the TV". You will also apparently get full access to the underlying Linux system, so there might possibly be a proper Linux desktop included to achieve this.

    It sounds like it's going to remain quite open too, as they say you will be able to access games purchased from other "content platforms" as long as it's Linux-compatible. So, it sounds like installing Steam will be possible for example.

    It will come pre-loaded with classic Atari games too and even some current titles from a range of different studios. It will be interesting to see if these current titles are games already on Linux, or games they will get ported. If they are new ports, I hope they continue to be open with them and not do some kind of exclusive "Ataribox store" deal. They say we will learn more about the titles soon, so I will keep you updated.

    It will launch on Indiegogo soon, they say "this fall". It might seem strange for a bigger company to go to crowdfunding, but they say this is because they want the community to be part of the launch. Honestly though, it's mainly so there's less risk involved for them, but it's also a good way for them to gauge real interest in it.

    As for the proper launch, that will be in "late Spring 2018" with a price between $249-$299. That depends on what edition and configuration is purchased.

    That's all just speculation. Best bet is Jaguar cores just like the Xbox One and PS4 have. Maybe Excavator, but not Ryzen. And the graphics are probably not anything current either, not like the Xbox One X or the PS4 Pro, but more like the regular Xbox One.

    edit: Btw, anyone looking for a really decently powered but affordable laptop that can do some light gaming without a discrete GPU, the Raven Ridge family of APUs, that's Zen cpu and Vega gpu on one chip, should be very good. Better than what Intel has or has planned. Zen's low power consumption should be great for laptops, and AMD does graphics far better than Intel. Expect them for Xmas of this year and early next year.

    I debated where to put this, but I decided here because it's more PC Master Race representing.

    I don't. Most Mario games are not good things.

    Which one is your favorite?
    The first. Only one I've ever played.


    I even put on emulator on my system and I play it occasionally... not the same without a controller though. Also, I really preferred Battle Mode.
