If you already have a closed beta key, it should still work, but if you were waiting to play the Heroes of Neverwinter beta, just wait until tomorrow (September 15th) where you’ll just need to go to apps.facebook.com/neverwinterheroes to play!

I wasn’t too sure what to make of Star Raiders, it was something not particularly heard of much before since it was originally around in 1979 and a little while before my gaming time (although, I had started playing some arcade games then).
Warlords was originally released on the Atari 2600 (that’s the system your dad grew up with, kids) and so in what seems to be an ongoing series of remakes, a remake is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. “Warlords infuses the arcade action genre with a bold and vibrant visual style coupled with robust strategic gameplay,” says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. “It exemplifies our design goals and company strategy as we reintroduce these classic brands to a new generation of gamers.”
Some screenshots have been released of Atari’s Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale which, if you didn’t know, is an action-RPG developed by Bedlam Games where the Forgotten Realms are under attack by the evil Zhentarim. “The Dungeons & Dragons franchise remains a priority for Atari as we continue to build upon the ever-evolving narrative with Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale” says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. “As the first D&D cross-platform digital download title we look forward to expanding the franchise to a growing gaming audience.”
