Episode 33–Who Didn’t See That One Coming?


September 2015

Fall is in the air and with that comes the upcoming Holidays, family time and (hopefully) some good garage and playing time, as well.  Speaking of playing, it’s an interesting point to consider – if you could have any arcade games you wanted, what would make the cut on your top-10 list?  Brent and I answer that question this month and dive into the titles that win out over all others.  It’s a fun and lively discussion and it’s a segment we’ve been meaning to do for months and we’re happy to slot it in for this episode.

Personally – I was glad to see that Brent loves Donkey Kong so much… I knew he’d eventually come around.

Once Brent came down off his Donkey Kong high, we were able to get back to business and discuss some game room updates, new reproduction parts for this month, respond to a TON of feedback (thank you!!), do a mini-review of the movie Pixels and we learn a little about Brent’s multi-game cabinet… great story and one that will certainly hit home for anyone who shares the hobby with their family.

So grab your favorite Oktoberfest and warm up with a good blankie while episode #33 gives you more insight into our psyche than you probably ever wanted!

    Hey guys, really enjoyed the story about Brent’s multi game. It’s a true epic in scale, but worth the listen front to back. It’s so feel good that when I listened to that part I not only wanted to go home and hug my wife and dog, I also wanted to hug random strangers and the smelly homeless guy begging for change at the gas station. I rate it a solid 12 out of 10 on the cool story scale.

      Hey Kenny, thanks a lot for the comment! I think you nailed it pretty well man… it was definitely a ‘here it comes…here it comes…’ type of story, but well-worth the time investment. We’ve had a lot of good feedback on that segment and it’s good to know that even the homeless guy at the gas station was going to see the better side of humanity! 🙂

      Thanks for listening as well and glad to hear you are enjoying the show!
