Note: Several recording difficulties this episode. We attempted to balance the audio ahead of time but in actual recording it seems we still haven’t optimized the mics to capture just the people closest to them so there is some reverb, particularly on Dennis. Also Windows decided it just had to update and given Easter activities we could not wait longer and had to record while the install was running. Several audio sections failed to record and so edits around some discussions had to happen. Apologies upfront for the quality issues!
Pinball: We talk some about Fathom Revisited and 2022 game releases, have an extended discussion about P3 versus traditional pinball, and FINALLY catch up on Rumor Corner.
Video Games: We prove updates on Wargaming, Lego and Epic partnering, Elden Ring having a new super-fast speedrun, Hello Games planning an ambitious new game, and a slew of Activision updates.
