Summer is taking it’s last bow here in the Bluegrass with fall on the way in and we take our best shot at holding onto the summer season as best as we possibly can. Brent visits some local (but often overlooked) arcades and fun parks, swaps around his gameroom lineup a bit and puts a Domino Man on ice – but not before taking 50V right across the arm while working on the Nip-It. Whitney does something he’s not done in over a year – pick up game – and via Facebook no less. We discuss the upcoming UK Sky Skipper reveal, digital oscilloscopes and bust out a new segment for the show “Back to the Past” where we pull out some interesting facts/figures from old Playmeter and RePlay magazines and run some numbers through the handy-dandy inflation calculator and lament the “good old days” of buying games new in the box (err…crate).
This is way more fun than raking a pile of autumn leaves (or a 50V shock) – trust us!
Here’s how the timings for the show break down:
* Segment 1 – 00:00 – 01:25 – Monthly updates and goings on
* Segment 2 – 01:25 – 02:14 – “Back to the Past” (Playmeter style) & Spend Brent’s Money
* Segment 3 – 02:14 – 02:51 – News and Feedback
* Segment 4 – 02:52 – Outtakes and stuff…
