Sometimes the old school is still the best school where gaming is concerned. Tetherball and the Dungeons & Dragons Red Box are great examples of this, and for this edition of Chrome Web app of the Week, Atari's Tempest fits the bill. Released in 1980, this paddle-controlled monster saw arcade-goers run through quarters faster than poop through a goose, and no wonder: 31 years later, with its simple vector graphics and frantic gameplay, Tempest can still hold its own against any modern action game you'd care to name.
Does something about this case look familiar? That’s the first thing we said when pulling NZXT’s Tempest out of the box. Save for a few minor modifications to the chassis, this case is a carbon copy of Antec’s Nine Hundred chassis. It’s built like the Nine Hundred, performs like the Nine Hundred, and even glows like the Nine Hundred, thanks to its front- and side-panel blue LED fans.
And yeah, that's a good thing. Hit the jump for deets.
