You'd never believe what happened to me today: I was out jogging with pineapples (as I usually start my week) when I slammed head-first into a six foot bird. He began spewing all kinds of nonsense about an Ironman of Gaming so I challenged him to a Street Fighter IV tournament, but he was busy and on his way to Texas. He asked if I could bring my tournament to him and lured me with a stuttering whisper:
"The founder of Atari will be there. No stupid, not Leonardo DiCaprio."
Alright, so I made that whole thing up, but the rumor is more than real. ScrewAttack's web site hints of big SGC news to hit tomorrow and a trusted source gave us the scoop: Nolan Bushnell, the man whose loins produced Atari and Chuck-E-Cheese will be headlining the event and signing autographs in the flesh. I'm always curious to hear this guy talk smack. We presume he'll also be plugging his new raffle gaming investment -- a project we've been watching with curious pants on.
I remember seeing this photo of him when I was a kid ... he was in his office full of computers, video games and a big robot. I thought man, that's the kind of life I want to have. I kinda cheated on the robot part but I'm otherwise almost there. Now I just need to create a new technology that completely revolutionizes the face of consumer entertainment for generations and grow an epic beard.
What would you say to a living video game legend like this? What bizarre Atari periphenelia will you drag into a suitcase for him to ink? You've got about 119 days to think about it. Cheapo-registration is still open, so I just saved you ten bucks. Destructoid will also be there giving away prizes and kissing Texans. See you there!
