After a very enjoyable Christmas break, we get right back into the action with an update about a fresh new look for the podcast and a pile of pinball related talk.

There’s a long discussion about how DX9 seems to be complicating development for The Pinball Arcade on Steam. We talk about what could be done about this, and look to competitors to see some proven best practice about getting rid of the poor UX for this part of the product.
