All posts tagged - Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo
This month could have been called “the watchpot never boils” as we spend some time catching up on the summer and discussing several items that we’ve been waiting to bake…
- Brent’s return from the 2018 Southern-Fried Gaming Expo to hear about the capers and fun that was had down in Atlanta + BONUS interview with Circus Maximus talking about their upcoming Kingpin Pinball!
- Whitney’s TNA – oh, the sweet, sweet smell of waiting.
- The Atari VCS
- The Hyperkin Retron 77
- Donkey Kong & Sky Skipper ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH!!
- A new Intellivision console?!?
Yeah – you read all of that right – we cover some seriously diverse ground this episode, all the while trying to figure out how to light up some Pixel Pals and just what the heck is up with the “Supreme” edition pinball from Stern??? I guess what they say is true – it’s all about the benjamins. Summer heat is killing us, Brent can’t remember a single person’s name and we both have way too many words. Like we said on the show – IT”S ALL UPSIDE!! (more…)
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!
Join us for one of the panel discussions we presented at the 2016 Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo.
In this video, we cover what it takes to “shop out” a pinball machine where we discuss everything from maintenance tips and tricks to how to clean and touch up a playfield as well as covering off on some of the higher-level tasks associated with a full-on restoration.
If you want to follow along in the video with the PowerPoint presentation, then you can find a PDF export of the slide deck available below:
Summer is in full swing and we’ve got more podcasting goodness for your summer restoration work (or commutes…however you call it, we’re good with it!)
We discuss project updates from all over the place, talk about Red Tents (GRAILER), ROM burning, scanning artwork, what we ordered from Online Components, troubleshooting System 11 pinball machines, logic probes and last, but not least, go all SlapStic on spending Brent’s money – and that’s after he picked up the bill when we had dinner with listener David Paul!
If you can stomach all the topic dyslexia, then we have a special treat in store for you this month: Daniel DeBusschere hosts one of the panels from the 2016 Southern Fried Gameroom Expo entitled “Painting the Dots – Pinball’s Color DMD Revolution” and talks with Mica Critchfield and Mark Jarzewiek as they discuss all things ColorDMD – from how displays are colored to some history of the project and the company. It’s great info that you won’t hear anywhere else. On top of that, they premier color dots running on Family Guy for the first time, so you get a world-premier to boot!
If you want to catch the video from the session, then look no further as we’ve got it posted on our YouTube channel as well:
We also have plenty of feedback to discuss as well, so buckle up and get ready and remember…we are the way we are because we sit in the sun FAR too long…
We *finally* get back in our (studio) groove this month and stretch our legs a bit now that we’ve had the chance to recover from our recent Atlanta trip to the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo. We recount our experiences at the expo and keep a watch over the next month as we’ll be working on publishing content from that show, as well.
For being on the road as much as we have, we still managed to cover off on quite a few updates. Brent works on the Burgertime (remember that, right?!?) and also logs some time against a multi game for friend and burns (just kidding, but not really) a Space Invaders that just seems to love him a little too much.
Whitney has some (albeit thin) updates on Project ZK (for everyone), and has been going on what feels like a bona-fide mission on Powdercoating and both lament the many struggles (they are real, I tell you) of T-molding removal and installation on Rally-X and Gaplus.
We talk some additional tube-swap topics, have an editorial on the whole ‘Skit-B/Predator pinball drama’ and as with every month, Whitney “Spends Brent’s Money” where we talk lots of new parts and reproductions available this month.
We cover off on some great listener mail and give a “special” shout-out to Charlie and the gang at Spooky Pinball (listen to the end of the show… I’m about ready to retire Brent straight up, hence the show title).
It’s a 4-hour extravaganza (or something of the short… I needed a #20DollarWord for this month, and it fit) this month full of fun, laughs and great information.
Enjoy the show!
