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.
Jeff is joined by Jessica DeNardo as they talk about all the new stuff at Texas Pinball Festival, including that Bride of Pinbot 25th Anniversary machine…emotions might run hot there. We also dig into the WPPR changes announced for 2018.
Jeff is joined by Jessica DeNardo and Bowen Kerins and it immediately gets awesomely weird. Listen in as the three of us go over game theory, what Taco Bell would look like as a pinball theme, new games coming out, competitive pinball format talk, and much, much more.
With the first episode after Don’s flight into hiding, Jeff is joined by listener favorite, Jessica to discuss pinball machines that always seem to do them dirty in competition. Come for the therapy session and let it all out with us.
Next show we’ll be joined by Bowen Kerins, who will lend his words of pinball wisdom. Submit any questions or topics that you’d like us to discuss while Bowen is on the show to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, Don and Jeff recorded live, side-by-side at Flipperspiel Underground in Las Vegas. Pretty sure we forgot to thank the most important person involved…YOU! Thank you all for listening and supporting the show for 100 episodes! Five and a half years of mediocre pinball ranting. Thanks again for joining us! Special thanks to Daniel and Hollywood Nate at NiftyLED.com for throwing the party, to Adam at Flipperspiel Underground for hosting us in his great arcade, to Ryan Claytor for his fantastic Episode 100 artwork, and thanks to Nick, Lee, Chris, Scott, David and Leeann of ULEKStore.com, the membership of FU, and the NiftyLED Mrs’es for joining us in Vegas.
