Well, it’s official. You can no longer purchase WMS tables from Farsight.
It’s a bit of a sad day and an end of an era for Farsight Studios, but it could be the beginning of a brand new phase for the studio.
Time will tell.

We shirk the bad vibes and have a chat with Greg Holden from Spacies Arcade, who did a great YouTube Vlog on the Arcooda Video Pinball cabinet. He’s got a host of great questions from the communities’ viewpoint, which makes for a great perspective and a great show.
