Alien Brigade Ad Scan

Alien Brigade Ad Scan

This was the "retro scan of the week" over on vintagecomputing.com. The ad is from the Atari 7800 game Alien Brigade that came out in 1990 at the end of the 7800's run. The alien infested solider in the ad looks very much like a baboon wearing a helmet. From the bottom of the ad: "An Alien is a wonderful thing to Waste".

Cave Full of New Atari Games

A million 7800 and 2600 games mint in box.

A million 7800 and 2600 games mint in box.

A limestone cave would be the last place I'd store a million mint condition atari video games. But a liquidation company in Kansas City, MO did just that. O'Shea, Ltd decided in the early 90's to buy up nearly 3 million unsold Atari games and has been selling them ever since. The games are for the 7800 and 2600 and are in their original never before opened boxes from the 70's and 80's. Each sells for $5.00 each plus shipping. Games they still have new in stock include...

7800
CENTIPEDE
ASTEROIDS
DIG DUG
JOUST
MS.PAC-MAN
and 12 others.

2600
BATTLEZONE
FOOTBALL
BASEBALL
P.POSITION
and 10 others.
