Episode 47 – Street Level + Loot Crates = Profit?

Pinball: We open with the set-up for Round 5 (the final!) for our 2017 System 11 Tournament. After that is a short update on Heighway Pinball’s Alien games. From there, Dennis and Tony talk about Stern Pinball’s Guardians of the Galaxy reveal. Finally, Dennis presents his research project on the Gottlieb “Street Level” pinball series of games, an experiment by the company in the early 1990s.

Video Games: Tony leads off with his research project, the world of loot boxes. The show ends with a summary of BlizzCon 2017 announcements (Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Heroes of the Storm).
