70: It’s All Upside!


JUNE 2018

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…

  1. 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!
  2. Whitney’s TNA – oh, the sweet, sweet smell of waiting.
  3. The Atari VCS
  4. The Hyperkin Retron 77
  5. Donkey Kong & Sky Skipper ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH!!
  6. 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!!
