Quoted from Yelobird:
Sorry never understand this position. Aren’t All Pinball podcasts/shows/streams essentially infomercials for a pinball? Does anyone Really make a decision to buy a $$$$$ game or not based on what one of these shows suggest? Heck, Jack Danger (great reviews and show!) is literally a paid gun for hire with an OEM Script! Yet few hate (rightfully) his presentation. Some like to listen to a show only to hear the negative (K-Man) some to hear the positive (TPN), still doesn’t influence how you pull out your wallet! Some content providers like to focus on the Issues of pinball, some the Pleasure of pinball similar to the threads of Pinside. I personally Love and appreciate All/any of these guys that for the most part do this for FREE for our consumption. Surely Zach Could still be a distributor Without doing all this hard extra work no? They are All infomercials, pic your flavor and enjoy. It’s Pinball!
Nah..... You overcomplicate it.
Here's the deal. You have Pinball podcasts. Then you have kaneda pinball podcast. Period.
If you think TPN and kaneda are the same you're not getting it. One is paid to play. The only podcast out there that wasn't shilling, wasn't sucking up to the industry, wasn't trying to sell me on hot wheels being an amazing game (bc it's not, I played it) - that's kaneda.
And it's not just TPN - I like deadflip but he's equally in bed with Stern too - he just does a better job about it than TPN. Simple as that. I still love listening and watching Jack - I still listen to TPN but don't forget - don't EVER forget.
They are no Kaneda. The entire industry now is saturated with kiss ups and it sucks.
