Atari may have a new head honcho ready to turn the company's staggering misfortune around, but it ain't gonna happen overnight. Atari stated in its Q3 report that if it wasn't for the $3.7 million restructuring charge it would have posted a net income of $3.4 million this quarter. It's nice that th...

So, what's changed in the nearly two years since we first saw a trailer for Atari's oft-delayed update of Alone in the Dark? Well, in some ways, not much.

Delays, delays, delays. They're all over the place aren't they? Of course, towards the end of 2007, delays were expected. After all, there were tons of good games (or at least games that were supposed to be good) coming out at the time, so it only made sense to push certain titles into the new year...
