    Xmas 2021 A Pinball Bust

    Xmas 2021 A Pinball Bust

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-232/
    About this time last year, we predicted what we would see released about now (December 2021). Naturally, things didn't go exactly to plan, but some predictions aren't too wild.
    We also talk about Zen's new release _Funko Pinball Party Arena_ available through _Zen Pinball Party_ on Apple Arcade.
    Thrown in for good measure is a segment on our addiction with various rhythm action games, which we talk about with great passion. Some games we talk about are free (as in open-source), and some are freemium (as in "gross", but tolerable).

    Not Salty About Peanuts

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-231/
    We are back with another episode that, this time, features the gameplay of Zen's newest Pinball Party title, Peanuts.
    Plus, we take a look at Skillshot FX's new virtual pinball cabinet.
    And then there's the big question mark over Zen interviewing Spooky Pinball!
    Does this mean we'll be seeing digital versions of their tables in Pinball FX?

    Pinball FX delayed until 2022

    Pinball FX delayed until 2022

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-230/
    That's right, Pinball FX has been delayed according to the latest episode of The Pinball Show. 
    That however is not the only news...
    Chris and Jared take another deep dive look into what Mel Kirk had to say. Much speculation ensues. 
    Plus, beer!

    Lights, camera, auction!

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-229/
    It's a mish-mash of topics that concludes with the outrageous auction prices of a huge pinball collection. 
    First, though, we catch up on Zen and Stern news as well as a rather odd video with the world's largest pinball machine.

    Zen brings Apple to a Pinball Party

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-227/

    Lost in the Woods with Arcooda Pinball Forest

    Lost in the Woods with Arcooda Pinball Forest

    https://www.blahcadepinball.com/blahcade-226/
    This episode's main event is a curious development with arcade machine producer Arcooda and a tweet stream they have been leaking out over the last few weeks. 
    There are some interesting revelations in this block of tweets that we dive head-first into and explore. 
    It is all leading somewhere, but you will need to listen to the episode to find out more.
    It's also time to address the elephant in the room and talk about The Pinball Show from Zen's marketing division. 
    The show is awkward, lacks host chemistry, and needs some tweaks to make it worth tuning into. 
    Like, actual information.

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.
