This Week in Gaming History

This week, we look at tragic love affairs between Atari and Nintendo, EA and Marvel, and Uwe Boll and good cinema.

Honestly, Atari's legal team deserves credit for suing or being sued in Federal Court so many times that they pretty much founded the entire legal approach to video games in America. It could use a little changing up with DLC changing the scene so much, but it held together for the past twenty years decently.

Uwe Boll and good cinema.

Two things that should not be in the same sentence. *does the sign of the cross to try and ward off the Boll-demon*

Indeed. Magnavox vs. Atari, Ralph Baer on the Magnavox side, anyone?
