Quoted from toyotaboy:


Jpop should hire zidware interactive social media to improve his online reputation

I think everyone has weighed in sufficiently to make his/her feelings known about both the nickname Special K and the person to whom it refers. It's unlikely anyone not already persuaded one way or the other is going to be as a result of further debate, so how about we drop both topics and just talk about the game from here on?

"This" guy is "the" worst.

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

If I read a post like that from him I would have jumped ship right away, what a completely delusional guy. I like how he mentions their egos at the "other place" lol, and all he apparently cared about was stroking his ego. I'm guessing there were many more out of control comments by him over the years to the private group.

And I'd love to hate-read them!

Quoted from iceman44:

That type of post that Frolic showed is just one of MANY like that.
Amazing and disgusting. Covering up the lie.

Let's dust them off and get the whole collection up somewhere. For history's sake.

#22641 2 years ago
Quoted from GotAQuestion:

IF the game were magically guaranteed to make it to largescale production. IF the game were magically guaranteed to have complete code. IF the game were somehow adjusted so the many, many, many geometry problems (and apparently missing entrances to playfields), etc were fixed.
I could see there being solid demand. On paper, the idea is good. The reality that came out? Well I mean we've all been watching the trainwreck. So basically, if the large numbers game were more or less none of the things the boutique game ended up being, yeah, sure I see demand.

Funny thing is if versions of the game were mass produced with working mechs and code they'd be worth much less than these original 19/21/25/whatever crap machines

I have a feeling the tinkerers and challenge lovers will more enjoy trying to turn these incomplete j-builds into the working machines they were promised than if they had been delivered fully functional pins out of the box

Quoted from Mr68:

And since when is anyone under any obligation to pay Jpop's debts other than Jpop himself. This is the real world people. Life is unfair and that's what the court system is for. And speaking of the court system, imagine the Judge asking Popadiuk under oath how he intends to pay off his debts.
"Well your Honor, it seems my victims are paying off my debts".

And the judge you tell him whatever people are doing with their own money has nothing to do with his debts.

If 'social inventions' refers to getting a community to send a million dollars for figments of his imagination then this is one business jpop is actually qualified to run and I expect him to do gangbusters

Hey, did any of the original owners reach out to John about their warranty-covered machines on the offchance there were defects in material or workmanship?


Zidware Inc, ("ZW") is pleased to warrant, only to the original purchaser ("Warrantee"), that this pinball machine ("Product")Product will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for ninety (90) days after delivery to the Warrantee (the “Warranty Period”).

John on Spooky Pinball Podcast from December 2012. Quality stuff. Same bullshit five years ago as today. Only difference is the percentage of listeners who knew it.

Really digging this DR interview. It's even better when you picture this guy giving the answers.

Quoted from frolic:

His use of "social justice" is so... odd.
It's almost like one of his infamous examples of hearing in passing about something, not understanding it, yet thinking it would benefit him to use it, and then not even using it correctly.
-"Pussycat Bowling Pinball", because people like bowling apparently, from the success of "Labowski".

From the looks of concept artwork he might just be sexually attracted to cats.
