Salutations and tithings everyone, we trust that you are healthy, safe and ready to kick 2020 in the hiney to see it out proper. Speaking of “we” (as in not we, but he) Brent does this show solo (for reasons we’ll get into in January) so please give him the virtual “hug” and let us know if you liked the focus on this month’s show. It’s clear that he has spent some serious time over the past several weeks going “console crazy” and he told me in discussion it was like climbing a mountain – and a show title was born!
This month we feature another panel discussion from the 2019 Portland Retro Gaming Expo entitled “The Best Classic Consoles at any Price Point” and we think you’ll find it very interesting given the recent boom in retro console gaming and the interest there driving prices up almost everywhere online.
We hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and New Years Holiday and we look forward to being back at full for January!
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!
