Jessica and Jeff are here to recap recent news in pinball, including some new artwork from Spooky Pinball’s next game, the upcoming JJP #4 game announcement, J-Pop’s upcoming gig with Deeproot Pinball, Torpedo Alley, and more. Stay tuned to the end for a new Pinball Popcorn from Joe Zenkus!
Jessica and Jeff return after a longer period off than normal. While we were away, things went straight crazy, and we touch on that to get things started before delving into the uncertain history of Steve Kirk, and a few of the games he designed and possibly designed without proper credit. We’re looking for more information on Steve Kirk, including personal anecdotes. If you have anything to share, we’d love to discuss it.
It’s our first podcast after the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE, and Jessica and Jeff go into games with a space-based theme. We also discuss Redshift’s Total Lightshow mod, P.B. Toots, and what we’ve been up to in pinball. Jeff has changed.
In a first for us, we have to break out Spanish Flea because of pet interference. Aside from that, we had a great time reviewing Pinburgh and California Extreme with Bowen Kerins. Thanks to Bowen for hanging in there late into the night while we got things back on track after Ridley nearly brought down the entire operation.
Steve Bowden, of Fun With Bonus, joins us to talk about the upcoming Pinburgh tournament as well as to discuss sound integration in pinball games. We had some crazy technical issues, but thankfully we were able to salvage things.
Episode 109 was a weird one to record. Before the software crashed, you’ll notice that Jess and Steve are pitched up. No way to fix this, they sound like chipmunked versions of themselves. Also, sorry for the static. No idea what was going on there…
Episode 108 comes after an extra week off due to travels and, well, that’s the only reason. We catch up on the goings on in pinball and welcome Joe Zenkus onto the show to discuss custom pinball machines.
Episode 107 is here after Jessica’s trip to Tacoma and Jeff’s trip to Denver. The two argue about who had the better show experience, which is unresolved, but it’s pretty obvious who had the better Uber/Lyft ride. Oh, we talk some pinball, such as Karl DeAngelo’s Do or Die Multiball achievement on Iron Man (here: https://youtu.be/TimzFtvAwFA), Houdini, and much more.
Episode 106 is admittedly a little sleepy as it’s been a long, long couple of weeks for both hosts. Still, Jessica’s Evel Knieval has managed to kick of its journey and Jeff picked up a new game this past week. As Jess and Jeff look forward to upcoming shows, a little bit of news has dropped, including the sort of reveal for Star Wars and Andrew Heighway being ousted from Heighway Pinball.
In episode 105 we are joined by a special guest, Michael Lee as he discusses his recent pinball pickup, Joust! Michael gives us some insight into how to play the game, some strategy, and how the game differs when you’re playing by yourself or in the head to head setting.
We also discuss Dialed In #0001 coming off the line, Total Nuclear Annihilation, Dutch Pinball “updates,” and what we’ve been up to for the past couple of weeks.
This episode took a month and three attempts to get out. The reasons aren’t important…it’s finally here. This show is a bit of a setup for our next episode where we’ll be featuring Joust, so get your questions and comments in if there’s anything you’d like to discuss. Sorry for the audio quality from Jeff’s side (popping Ps and breathing), his mic was not working and a cheap headset was used instead.
Big thanks for the continued support from NiftyLED and everybody else who promotes and shares our show.
