    Can you list all of Steven’s shill accounts?

    #3605 56 days ago

    I love the idea of an escalara but I have a basement door way that is too small so heads come off. Not really much to deal with so never pursued. They are awesome!

    Oh and congrats on the sale of the vid boob!

    #3606 56 days ago

    Big weekends usually don’t disappoint.

    #3607 56 days ago

    I'm always tempted to stir the pot, or say something under the "not nice" category, but usually just laugh at what you guys post. Colson's photo of the street sign was great.

    I'm certain Mr. Steven will add some fuel to the fire soon.

    Sounds like Steven behind the camera in the new TNT video.

    If his arcade is so busy, how is he able to hang out at TNT all the time?

    Or maybe I'm wrong, you be the judge.

    I miss the days of Todd and Frank bantering, the latest videos are pretty dull.

    It's honestly sad, when Frank and Todd made the humorous videos, they were both entertaining and educational.

    You can see the rotating staff over there now, and I personally don't enjoy the vids anymore.

    Want to go on the record as saying I think Todd is a very kind and helpful man. I do want his business to be successful.

    The new Steven element is disappointing.

    #3614 55 days ago

    Did anyone catch Zack and Dennis' comments on their latest The Pinball Show podcast? Unlike the TNT comments I thought theirs were pretty funny.

    I think Todd just likes having young guys around.

    Youthful companions can be invigorating!

    Is insulting Todd constantly behind the camera really " Funny" I have watched for about 1 year and that part always seems not necessary. A few jokes here and there but in " EVERY video....It's old and time to change.. Curt seems the most professional . Wish he would take over.

    I think HE is trying to be like the twin who always made fun and joked about everything Todd did. Yawn-Done-Stop.

    TNT is also an hour and fifteen minutes away from Gameseum. Two and half hours of driving seems crazy to me just to follow good old Todd around the warehouse. I’m failing to see the mutual benefits of this relationship.

    Is that like 3 cookies , a 2L coke, and a half bag of Doritos? That’s more or less what he offers as free food for grand openings.

    ROFLMAO!

    I scrolled through some of their latest posts (seems like many comments/questions/concerns always get ignored).

    Went to "like" a couple things and realized I was banned. Fucking HILARIOUS, considering all I EVER did there was ask a couple questions or liked others....never posted any of the painful truths or anything bad.

    Funny shit. Guess I'll need like 10 shill facebook accounts

    I love how every other post on their page is "We're open...." Almost like he thinks no one is showing up because they think the place is closed. I also love how he has time to take that many pictures of an employee cleaning games instead of you know pitching in and cleaning too. You can tell shes not happy behind the mask. I always hated when the boss sat and watched me work.

    #3633 55 days ago

    He likely already pre-banned anyone who was critical of him on pinside in case they choose to comment on his page.

    #3634 54 days ago

    I just looked at their FB page, it's hilarious.

    They describe themselves as "The world's coolest arcade" AND "The cleanest arcade in the world"! . LOL

    Certainly the whitest arcade and most blank walled museum from anything I've seen.

    He'll set up another Fundme account for the wall decor so he can buy some old BG's from Todd to hang.

    #3638 54 days ago

    This question was most likely asked in previous pages, but how exactly is his arcade a museum?
    Is he getting a tax break by calling it a museum?

    I doubt he gets (or tried) a tax break; but wouldn't be surprised if it was a thought/goal.

    I remember when he went on and on about the super clever name/idea because it was going to be a 'hands-on museum'...Discovery center it is not. It's a gameroom plain and simple. Nothing wrong with that; but not exactly what he hyped on and on about.

    I think he mentioned once that the landlord wouldn't let him paint etc because it was just renovated. That does stink, but that should have been discussed before leasing space. What kind of business would lease a space knowing they can't set up their business properly there? :/

    After this was all mentioned (out of helpful suggestions), he added some color change led lights etc to try some color.

    Really, there NEEDS to be retro/gaming decor, signage, pictures, lights, artwork, pop culture, etc to get gameroom/arcade feel. And if it's true to ANY part of its weird name, there certainly needs to be artifacts, history, game info, pictures, etc.

    All the closed time would have been EXACTLY great time to try adding some stuff, painting or making own decor, typing stuff up (he IS social media guru and master of the long sentence), and so on. Also, may have been worth discussing with landlord about renegotiation on painting; most owners either want a deposit/charge something for it and/or stipulate it simply has to be repainted back white like it was when moving in (from my experience); but never know.

    That post was too long

    #3642 54 days ago

    All he needs to do is pull 2-3 bulbs out of each of those death ray quad-fluorescent fixtures in the ceiling, and he changes the atmosphere in there significantly. Then hang some crap on the walls....get some arcade art on banners and hang them up. The current setup makes me feel like I am going for a teeth cleaning, not an arcade experience.
