BlahCade #181: Rhymes with Switch

We’re doing what you told us to and recording on Twitch now! It’s pretty sweet!

It’s another week on little to no news about Williams Pinball and other Digital Pinball platforms, so Chris and I go into other stuff as we typically do.

I talk about the prep I’ve been doing on Star Race to get it ready for The Ekka this year.

Chris talks about getting decals printed so that he can bring Fire Power back to life again. Well, that’s after he clear-coats the playfield and drags the spaghetti wiring harness back into place. Oh, and after he staples the earth braid back into place again and re-attaches all the components.

Chris also talks about his foray into writing for websites that are designed to get advertising clicks and not offer particularly engaging content. But hey, it pays the bills (well, sort of).

Jared is off to help level Pinball machines at The Ekka, so this episode will carry until next weekend when we may have some 👀 news to share 👀.

If you’re in Brisbane over Ekka, please play my pinball. Every dollar counts towards the next one. Oh yes, there will be another. But more on that next time.
