It’s time to officially kick off the 2019 Christmas Holiday season and there’s no better way (that we know of) than to give all our listeners a whopping 5+ hours of “back in action” podcasting to chase off those holiday blues. Fair warning on this episode though – although Whitney is back in the studio with Brent this month and discusses his recent hiatus, it does tug on the heartstrings a bit in his update segment. Outside of that, it’s everything you’ve come to know and love, but with MORE HOURS!
In addition to the normal arcade and pinball discussion, updates and some reflection on recent news (of which we talk about desoldring irons, Ghostbusters code update, Firepower, our thoughts on the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo, parts storage and displaying your Pinball translites in style, Deeproot RAZA and Haggis Celts, just to name a few off the top of our heads), we are humbled this month to share the MP3 with some distinguished ladies in gaming – Imoto Harney and Belle Wheeler. Both were featured panelists at the 2019 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo and we’ve included the audio from those panel discussions as interview segments this month!
Yep – we admit it – we go “straight to plaid” in this months’ episode. We tried REAL HARD LIKE to not let the discussion around Stern’s new Star Wars Pinball capitalize the episode, but we couldn’t help ourselves. We analyze it from up one side and down the other and still net a solid zero at the very end of it all. Fortunately we have “Total Nuclear Annihilation” on the horizon and that promises to save the day – in more way than one.
So, on with what promises to be a really fun show. We work through our monthly updates, as Brent just completed a pretty large group buyout on some killer titles (and a lot of PC10 carts, as well). He picks up his Jurassic Park and lays in a total surprise game pickup as well. Whitney discusses the next few chapters in the Sky Skipper Project and discusses some cabinet swaps he’s got going on.
We cover off on a small soldering Q&A, review some hardware and for the first time in a few months we spend even more of Brent’s money. All this, a “Nip-It” alert to end all alerts, and some feedback as well!
