    Episode 67:
    https://soundcloud.com/user-465086826/episode-67

    Tony and Dennis were not at Pinburgh 2018, and so while all the other podcasts flood you with their bad beats and long monologues about each and every tournament game they played, we'll talk about other stuff!

    Pinball: In pinball news, Pinburgh is (very) briefly touched on. After that, the guys discuss Multimorphic fulfilling all their P3 preorders, Jersey Jack Pinball starting production of their Pirates of the Caribbean pin, Team Pinball emerging as a new pinball manufacturer with their first game: The Mafia, Stern Pinball acquiring the Godzilla license, Chicago Gaming Company finally announcing Monster Bash as their next remake, and the latest from Dutch Pinball.

    After the news, Dennis talks a bit about an experimental video project he did called Creative Pinball Rules. The pinball segment concludes with a game of 20 questions (where Dennis tries to stump Tony in identifying a pinball machine).

    Video Games: This segment begins with a discussion of the first season of the Overwatch League (what did and didn't work). Dennis then runs through a number of games he's been playing (Prey, The Evil Within 2, Dead Rising 4, Dragonball FighterZ, and Everspace). Finally, Tony discusses the update to No Man's Sky.

    Not really podcast news (yet, I'm sure I'll mention on the next episode), but I had two pinball articles release today.

    This Week in Pinball ran my beginner's guide to pinball designers:
    https://thisweekinpinball.com/guest-post-a-beginners-guide-to-pinball-designers/

    Pinball News ran my article on "middle-pop" pinball machines:
    https://www.pinballnews.com/site/2018/08/30/middle-pop-pinball/

    Just a coincidence they released the same day (they were written further apart than this suggests!).

    No more articles are currently pending (everything I've been working on is now published). Prepping the next podcast episode outline now, and doing some topic research before I decide what to explore next.

    Hi Dennis and Tony,

    Great year end review, thanks. I was very happy to hear that Multimorphic was first on your list of manufacturers to review. I just want to address one thing that you talked about. You mentioned that Gerry recently said that Multimorphic was working on including mechanical elements on the lower playfield in their next game for the platform. Tony wondered whether this would require any retrofitting or re-engineering for those existing games already in the homes of customers. Please note that the middle and lower playfields of the P3 are already modular and have been from the very beginning of production. The flippers and slingshots reside on a lower-playfield module which can be easily slid out of the game, serviced on the bench or even replaced with a different "bottom" configuration. There is also a mid-playfield module, currently housing the side targets and habitrails, which slides out of the game in a similar fashion. I believe (but am not 100% certain) that Gerry is referring to adding mechanical elements to the mid-playfield module on their next game. See the video below for a graphic illustration of the interchangeable nature of the P3's middle and lower playfield modules and some examples of possible layouts which feature mechanical elements on these modules:

    Thank you for the clarification! Tony doesn't get to Pinside much, but I've sent him your comments so he can see what the mechanical design entails.

    TWIPY voting is open: https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/the-twipys-vote-now/

    If you are wanting to vote for an article of mine, I'd ask you choose "A Beginner's Guide to Manufacturers". I'm in the awkward position of having something like 8 articles competing against each other, and I personally think that one is the most helpful overall (plus how the research pulled it together on the back-end appeals to me). You can read it here to see if you like it: https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/4551-2/

    I think all the rest are obvious categories that don't need much explanation. Have fun voting!
