Power Button - Episode 89: The Pinball Episode
November 19, 2012
Sometimes it's nice to get out of the house and go play video games somewhere else. This past weekend Brad Hilderbrand and I took our respective ladies to the second annual Southern Pinball Festival in sunny Orlando, FL for an afternoon of pinball action spanning decades worth of play. All of the great tables were there - Pinbot! Star Trek: The Next Generation! GoldenEye! Gorgar! Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines! Grand Lizard! - and on this episode of Power Button, you're going to hear about them all in a special edition devoted entirely to pinball. Silver ball aficionado Blake Grundman of the EvilCast joins us to talk about the best tables, the most intriguing designs, and the impressive world of video pinball that brings the action to modern video game consoles and handhelds. We cover Zen Pinball 2, Pinball FX 2, Pinball Arcade, and our other favorite ways of playing pinball when an actual table is not within reaching distance. Join us for an hour of pinball wizardry!
