Episode 29 – Too… Much… Pinball…

Episode 29 – Too… Much… Pinball…

A metric ton of pinball happenings dominates our discussion, with a small video game segment thrown in (no tabletop this time).

Pinball: We set up Round 4 of the 2017 Modern Widebody Tournament. We talk about Aerosmith gameplay. We talk about Alien Pinball shipping. We talk about the death of Super League. We discuss the latest involving Skit-B legally. We cover the problems facing The Big Lebowski’s production. And finally, we talk about Magic Girls shipping. As you can see, we talk a lot.

Video Games: We cover the future of Call of Duty, the upcoming Destiny 2, and the upcoming Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Episode 28 – A Triforce of Segments

Hey look, Episode 28 actually has a solid balance across pinball, video games, and tabletop gaming for once!

Pinball: Discussion revolves around the Kansas State Pinball Championship, move into Round 3 of the 2017 Modern Widebody Tournament, and name some games we think have a solid layout but are stinkers because the rules are poor. Tony and Dennis also spend a lot of time discussing what they are looking forward to at the 2017 Texas Pinball Festival.

Video Games: The topics here include ZeniMax’s legal “victory” over Facebook involving the Oculus, the opening of E3 to the public, and the latest Overwatch PTR update (involving Mercy and Bastion). Tony also spends a lot of time on the BATTLETECH beta and his live-stream intentions.

Tabletop: Thanks to an in-depth Game Night, Tony and Dennis get to provide hands-on discussions of Potion Explosion, Noisy Person Cards, and Codenames.
