Big CONGRATULATIONS from the Aussie pinheadz who love listening to your show Nate...100 excellent episodes is simply amazing!
Listened to every episode since the first one. I think i saw the post when you put it up on pinside late one night.
i figured "How entertaining could this be, just one guy talking about pinball?" 100 eps later... still wait patiently for every one.
How bout another "Call the People" episode sometime with some late night pinsiders?

Finally caught up again with listening to 104-112; this past week.
So glad Ep113 is now here waiting for me;
can not wait to hear Nate's impressions of his 1st Expo.
114 should be better than 113. I was so exhausted last night, and when I realized some of my audio from the show was unusable (tried to get too cute with technology), I was bummed. Sitting here in the Seminar room, awaiting Rick and PPS.
There is SO MUCH going on here, I can BARELY keep it all straight. So much fun. Great time for PINBALL.
Listening to 113, thanks for the quote from Dutch pinball about building a coffin. Hope to see you at MGC next year.
Nate, 113 was a great show, fantastic to have your opinions fresh from the show, thanks for staying up to do it.
Episode 116 "Echoes from Expo Part 1 or Big Juicy Lebowski"
-The Walking Dead
- Big Juicy Melons
the wrap-up podcast to Nate's Expo experience,
after he has had time to rest and digest it all.
You know, Nate, you have been very dismissive recently whenever people say that they want original themes. Well, given what we know now about the restrictions placed on Jersey Jack for the Smaug toy, I can't help but think that my desire for an unlicensed machine are well founded. I want the only limitations for designers to be their own imaginations and physics. Not style guides, fussy celebrities or demanding rights holders. That's something you can only get when you own it all.
Interesting take... I think I am really trying to point out that the game has changed. If a company chooses to work with an original theme, a few things happen....
1. They have no room for error. There likely won't be a clamor for the game based on theme alone. The game MUST play good, look great, and have developed rules.
2. They need to put a lot of thought into their original theme. It's not enough just to say "We are making a game about a futuristic warrior hero or whatever... There needs to be a story, characters, an entire "world" needs to be created.
What worries me, is that a few of the games right now with original themes right now are from companies that likely cannot afford a major flop. They might have been better off with a theme people are super excited about. This will drive sales, drive excitement, etc.... Then they can focus on the art and the actual game, without trying to also create an entire "theme". I think the Full Throttle response versus the Alien response is a great example.
I am ALL FOR original themes... I think RAZA and Magic Girl have so much potential... I am very excited for these games... I am BUYING AMH.... Because Ben/Charlie created an awesome vibe and little world under the glass for me to jump into...
I really think I was wondering out loud if the pinball audience truly wants orignial themes or not. I think they want the right ones done right... and would much prefer the right license done right to a less appealing original idea.
Episode 117 "Echoes From Expo Part 2 or Wrath of Atomic Madness"
-Wrath of Olympus
