November 4, 2002 - What on earth could you use an old Atari computer for these days? Hmm... Maybe web browsing, network usage, game playing, music authoring... Just because it is old, doesn't mean it's outlived it's usefulness!
October 25, 2002 - Peter Engelbrite wrote 2600 Summer Games, Winter Games, California Games, Lynx Slime World and Gates of Zendocon. Take a moment to read his thoughts about Atari and how you can be a game programmer too!
October 18, 2002 - Are you only allowed to have fun with a video game system if you can still buy games for it at a store? Just because you can't run to Wal-Mart and buy a game doesn't mean it's no fun anymore!
September 17, 2002 - With the Lx Rudis interview becoming so popular, and a Greg Omi (Klax programmer) interview heading for the 2002 Year End Issue, I thought it was time to bring this review of Klax, which first appeared in the 2001 Year End Issue.

July 24, 2002 - This 2600 version of Pengo is remarkably faithful to the arcade game and it pushes the 2600 to limits only seen by Atari's powerful 8-bit line. Check out Jess LaFleur's review of Pengo.

June 11, 2002 - Why do people hate 2600 Pac-Man so much? Is it the graphics? The sound? The fact that the maze isn't correct? Whatever the reason, there are people who have fond memories of this questionable version of Pac-Man!
June 4, 2002 - In Bart Harrison's first regular column for The Atari Times, he covers (what else) Star Wars, and other video game news. Also, can you name the "RealSports" game that was planned, but never released for the 2600?
May 21, 2002 - So, did you like Attack of the Clones? Even if you didn't, I'm sure that somewhere deep inside, you feel a certain sense of nostalgia for the original Star Wars arcade game. No other Star Wars game has ever felt so... Well, PERFECT!
May 15, 2002 - Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones arrives in U.S. theatres tomorrow! Now would be a good time to reminisce about the original Star Wars games for Atari systems and remember that it's THESE games (not the new fancy ones) that will be remembered in gaming history.
April 29, 2002 - I actually wrote this interview several months ago... Just goes to show you how slow I can be at putting up even my own stuff!
