Welcome to 2019. Let’s get started with a new year of commercial pinball talk, and a little bit of stuff you’ve come to expect from us.

We’re back for another year of commercial digital pinball coverage!

Because 2019 is going to be a very exciting year for Zen Pinball FX3 fans, we wanted to get ahead of the curve and talk about the holy grail titles we’d love to see appear in the new kid on the block’s pinball universe.

Because Christmas is all about tradition, Chris insisted we go into details about his Movies in Review for 2018. Because he had MoviePass this year, it is a long segment. I shoved it at the end. 😉

Join us for an extra long podcast that you can choose to listen to in parts, or in one sitting.

Chris’ Movie List for 2018

At 54:10 (after the show outtro), you can choose to stick around for an audio version of Chris’ Medium Article about the movies he saw during 2018.

It’s a long segment, and not strictly pinball related, so that’s why it’s at the end.
