Nolan Bushnell ET treasure hunt.

Here’s a great image of the Nolan Bushnell digging for those infamous ET game cartridge c/o

O.k so he’s not actually doing that, but it’s a  fun photo caption  all the same.


Speaking of Atari, look what Mrs StiGGy brought  me back from her shopping expedition.

  1. Whoa, I want to read that Retro Gamer special!! It’s getting harder to find them around me, so I’ll probably just grab it on my iPad, though that does look like a case where I’d like that in physical form…

  2. Thanks Toad64. It’s been out for a few weeks now and I was going to pass on it as I thought it might be mostly reprinted stuff from RG mag but (unless memory is fading) there looks to be stacks of content I haven’t seen before…maybe from GamesTM?

    Hope you do manage to find ourself a printed copy either via there shop or eBay, but as a digital magazine fan, the iPad version certainly would be my next choice.

    Kind regards
