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: (more…)
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!
We are back from the 2017 Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo and this episode can be considered our “Super Mega Doppler SFGE Wrap-Up” episode, as we cover off on all things related to the expo, including, but not limited to:
- Every friend we saw (of which there was a LOT)
- Every game we played (of which there was a LOT)
- Every panel we moderated or delivered (of which there was a LOT)
- Every Nip-It we played (of which there was ONE)
- Every time Brent tilted a pinball (of which there was a LOT)
- Every time we said “SFGE” or “Sky Skipper” this episode (of which there is a LOT)*
WHEW!! Well – there you go! Episode 56 in a bag, baby!
“Book ‘em Danno” – it’s the big ‘Five-O’ show!
There’s so much crammed into this month’s episode that we had to loosen the belt a bit and put on the stretchy pants, because I think we’ve hit an all-time high score when it comes to show length, commutes and long-distance runs…. seriously.
