Episode 65 "Keep Me Warm Bullwinkle or You, Me and 93!"
- Live (not live) from Boston!
- AND THE YEAR WAS...

I listened to the comments made on Bullwinkle in the Podcast. I have to stress there were some stereotypical complaints, namely concerning the double score award. Everyone talks about how this ruins the potential for tournaments. I can tell you it in fact does not. This is because the game has a built-in limiter that doesn't allow the double score to come up once you crack 100 million (which is very easy to break on even a sub-par game). My own best score is 800 million, and my average game is about 200 million. I have mine set to a strict 3-balls with a hard limit of only one extra ball allowed as a reward (either by in-game reward or breaking 200 million).

With regard to timers, there isn't a problem there either in my opinion. The only short-timed shot is when you are in WABAC mode, and that is on purpose. The designers wanted the player to have to fluidly make each left ramp shot in a row since this is effectively the "endgame" of the machine. I especially like how the game keeps a separate high score for specifically this mode.

Another complaint I hear about is "wrong-wrong-wrong-wrong hat". This happens when the targets wear out. Simply making sure the target gaps are properly adjusted and adding in some thin padding behind the head of the target keeps this from ever being an issue. Mine only say "wrong hat" once when hit as a result.

Anyway, It is a great underrated game. I think it also has one of the best backglasses of any pinball out there.

Great stuff FirebrandX. I love seeing someone with the knowledge expertly defending and setting the record straight on a very under rated pin!

I enjoy the podcasts and love these episode photo sheets, you should make a 100 episode booklet with the eposide photos per page but with maybe the episode name and number small in the corner - cool pinball art collection - great game room flip book.

Good thing is that now I will have something to listen to

I'm one of those people that likes the Forum Frenzy, especially since it led to a mini-Going Up, Going Down at the end. I do miss the variety of planned segments, but with all of the news about new pins and shows, it's understandable.

Thank you for interviewing pinball ninja, GREAT show!

#141 7 years ago

It was great to hear from Clay again! If only we could get him to start Topcast back up! So much has changed in pinball and I would love to hear some new interviews along with Clay's(and Norms!) thoughts on pinball today. Thanks for this Nate, I look forward to your podcast the most of all the ones I listen to. Keep up the great work!

#142 7 years ago

Great interview with Clay and friends.
What Clay has done with the VFW building
is what i need to find and do also to house my collection.
Someday?!?!

That VFW looks amazing. Reminds me of Peck's Pike out here on the west coast.

#144 7 years ago

Absolutely wonderful to hear Clay! Thank you for doing this interview.

Quoted from mikeincali:

That VFW looks amazing. Reminds me of Peck's Pike out here on the west coast.

I got to visit Randy's place in Long Beach about 3 yrs ago, and he only had games in the downstairs portion at the time, would love to see how it has progressed since then.
He has a large collection to rival anyone's.
Would hope to get to play and/or see one of the rarest pins out there: Bally's StarShip
(the one of a kind EM version of Supersonic, with Star Trek's Enterprise on the BG)
His collection's only flaw is that his pins do not have master pin mechanic like Clay looking after them
A visit & interview by C2C would make for an excellent show in the future,
especially as it is only about a 2 hr drive from San Diego.
In fact there are probably at least a dozen collections on the west coast one could visit and talk with the owners to provide content for future podcasts.
I am sure there are collectors you could visit on east coast also, like Vic Camp's collection.

#146 7 years ago

Loved hearing that "special guest...." soundbyte again. I'm really curious about those non-archived episodes from that other podcast that got nasty. Now I REALLY wanna hear 'em! Anyone got 'em?

#147 7 years ago

Always great to hear Clay speak, what a cool guy! Thanks for the interview.

Quoted from s1500:

Good Luck with the Gary Cubeta podcast search. I was interested to hear them as well as he hosted a wrestling interview podcast that I used to listen to. He was certainly a character....

#149 7 years ago

I believe i have them on my old work flash drive. I'll check, (i checked it was topcast episodes) not rgp, starting to think it was live and not file saved for later listening at the time. Sorry guys that PM'd me.

Yeah, there was some definite bad blood there for some reason (with claims of cyber attacks)and it was like he was ousted by RGP group, never knew the truth, never really cared all that much. His show was streamed live at like 9 or 10pm and with the time difference it was nice to listen to live while at work. I think he even did phone calls.
Oh and that was during time of Medieval Madness Remake number one. Wanye? Which at the time i was so close to putting money down on, but due to different country i didn't (thank God), now the real deal is happening and no way in hell to afford it. Sucks because MM from just personal taste, memories of first time playing at fair and such is my number one "wish i owned" game.

#150 7 years ago

I want to be at the VFW so BAD!!!!!!! Next year right Nate.
