'Nolan's Arcade' is likely a tip of the hat to video game pioneer Nolan Bushnell. If you don't know who he is, well you should as you probably would not be playing Xbox if it wasn't for him! Check out the link below for a quick video game history lesson, then bow your head reverently and say "Thank you Mr. Bushnell."

Frogger
Skate Or Die!
Ninja Gaiden
Dr. Mario
Wii Sports
Batman (obviously, but since no one has mentioned it yet...)
Knight Rider and possibly Dukes Of Hazzard
Scooby Doo
Married With Children
Fabio
Lucasfilm ('Mucus-Flem')
Subway
Die Hard (the movie, not the Sears car battery)
Ghostbusters
Vanilla Ice, Ice T and Ice Cube
TGI Friday's
'Big Money!' achievement is possibly a nod to the game show 'Press Your Luck' ("No Whammies!")

...and on and on and on, the puns and parodies are becoming too frequent to keep up with! I'm catching way more TV and movie references over video games... ahhh, the '80's

Also, the '$Deadbeef Metal' radio station totally rocks

Fun game. If you don't have it yet, get it.
