Episode 67 – Not About Pinburgh

Tony and Dennis were not at Pinburgh 2018, and so while all the other podcasts flood you with their bad beats and long monologues about each and every tournament game they played, we’ll talk about other stuff!

Pinball: In pinball news, Pinburgh is (very) briefly touched on. After that, the guys discuss Multimorphic fulfilling all their P3 preorders, Jersey Jack Pinball starting production of their Pirates of the Caribbean pin, Team Pinball emerging as a new pinball manufacturer with their first game: The Mafia, Stern Pinball acquiring the Godzilla license, Chicago Gaming Company finally announcing Monster Bash as their next remake, and the latest from Dutch Pinball.

After the news, Dennis talks a bit about an experimental video project he did called Creative Pinball Rules. The pinball segment concludes with a game of 20 questions (where Dennis tries to stump Tony in identifying a pinball machine).

Video Games: This segment begins with a discussion of the first season of the Overwatch League (what did and didn’t work). Dennis then runs through a number of games he’s been playing (Prey, The Evil Within 2, Dead Rising 4, Dragonball FighterZ, and Everspace). Finally, Tony discusses the update to No Man’s Sky.

Episode 66 – Mrs. Pin in Da House!

Tony and Dennis are joined by Mrs. Pin (of Mrs. Pin’s Pinball Podcast).

Pinball: In pinball news, the gang discusses CPR’s new digital printing approach to creating reproductions, the launched GoFundMe to help Dutch Pinball, and beginner’s guide to manufacturers Dennis put together for This Week in Pinball.

After that, Mrs. Pin challenges Tony and Dennis to a game of pinball trivia! Dennis follows this with a sort of mini-update to Premier’s `street level’ series of games by talking about BOM differences between the first game (Silver Slugger) and the last (Hoops). Finally, everyone talks about the most fun elements to pinball.

Video Games: Mrs. Pin brings her WOMP philosophy to the video game arena, and each host picks two women worthy of the title.

After that, Martin talks about streaming pinball for an audience, and gives his thoughts on what makes for good competitive pinball events.
