    My Little Star Inks

    My Little Star Inks

    In this episode, we talk about the game Inks and how it is now available on Android.

    We do a Let's Play of this title and talk through the chilled-out elements of the gameplay.

    We also discuss the 12 "new to Pinball FX" Star Wars tables added, along with the Hasbro My Little Pony table from Zen Pinball Party.

    These tables also get the Let's Play treatment, so check the video for that part of the show if you're an audio-only fan.

    We could see many more Zen Pinball Party tables come over now the exclusivity period has ended.

    The Pro Mode feature for Williams tables is out now, and we share our thoughts about this heavily requested feature.

    Homeworld Pinball Let's Play

    Homeworld Pinball Let's Play

    We speculate a bit about what is coming up from Zen in Pinball FX for September, October, and November.  

    We then dive into the live play of Zen's latest, Homeworld: Journey to Higara Pinball.  

    Is this Zen Original a "buy now" or "don't bother"?

    The rest of 2022 as we see it

    The rest of 2022 as we see it

    It has been a bit of a quiet year regarding commercial digital pinball.

    Chris and Jared break down what has happened throughout this year and predict how the year may end based on what we know now.

    There is also a break from the usual pinball talk with a discussion about the new Predator _Prey_ movie and a few other returning shows to check out.

    Grimm Tales and RetroPlay Aftermath

    Grimm Tales and RetroPlay Aftermath

    Well, people sure did have things to say about our previous episode featuring RetroPlay!
    We try not to kick the hornet's nest once more and probably fail.  
    You decide.  

    But we start the show with Jared talking about the BPAP 2022 festival in Brisbane, and we finish with a "Let's Play" of Zen's latest original table, "Grimm Tales".  

    There's some bonus play of Williams' "The Machine: Bride of Pinbot" (BoP for short).

    Retroplay Gets Us Talking About VPX

    Retroplay Gets Us Talking About VPX

    We usually stay clear of VPX discussions.

    But we saw what Retroplay is doing with a new app in their cabinets that takes all the hassle out of installing VPX tables, so they work well.

    With this being a major frustration point for Chris and me, we decided to talk with them.

    David Gilmore joins us for an in-depth discussion about the software and hardware solutions he has created to make pinball more accessible.

    We also discuss a great solution for pinheads who like to play in VR.

    Check out https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-243/ for the show notes.

    RIP Digital Pinball Fans

    RIP Digital Pinball Fans

    It's the end of an era! The digitalpinballfans.com forum is closing at the end of July 2022.

    We go down memory lane and talk about how the site hugely impacted digital pinball's growth and our reason for existing as a podcast.

    Oh, and Bride of Pinbot got announced, so we talk a little about what we've seen.

    Check out the beautiful graphics in our show notes at https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-242/

The finest digital pinball and current events podcast on the Internet

I’m just now working my way through 2017’s podcasts now, but when I heard that one episode where Chris spoke about the influence of KROQ on the 80’s electronic alternative music scene, I was hooked. It was like I was listening to myself speaking. Then I heard he has a Firepower AND an EBD, my 2 favorite pinball machines! Blown away.

Anyway, these guys talk about the whole digital pinball scene, current pop culture, and sometimes what’s on Netflix. Because they’re obviously dudes in their forties their views line right up with mine making it really interesting to me. Sometimes they’ll even get a scoop and interview some higher up person at Farsight! And when there is no news at all, they do a great job filling the time with...whatever.

Big fan, keep it up!

“Hot Garbage”

And with that “hot garbage” comment you both have now lost all credibility.

Great Information But Takes Forever To Get To It.

This is one of the most informative pinball podcasts out there. Unfortunately, it takes the hosts way too long to get to the point. The first 30-40 minutes of nearly every podcast is comprised of exhausting, in depth banter covering every conceivable mundane detail of the hosts’ personal lives. While it’s obviously interesting to them, it doesn’t exactly transfer into riveting podcast material for the rest of us. Chris and Jared are both smart, well informed guys. I just wish they’d get the small talk out of the way BEFORE they hit the record button.
