Quoted from ZMeny:

Yeah some of the direct ones are weird about play control. You almost have to slide the bar to go forward and back which is annoying. iTunes is my goto

I guess I’m spoiled. iTunes for me as well.

Quoted from Yelobird:

I did listen to the entire thing. The only criticism I can give them is I found No way to fast forward or rewind. As its 2 hours they are limiting the audience unless I missed how to do it?

I think it was due to that being a Facebook link. The direct SoundCloud link is here:

SoundCloud is pretty friendly for letting you jump around in audio.

Gents, great show. You guys have become 'integral' to the Pinside community. Zach, curious to know if you now feel differently about the multipliers in SW?

-Adam

Thanks Adam! And no I still hate them. The game would be sooo much better if the center bank was used to integrate modes better (video interaction) rather than multipliers. Multipliers should only max at 3-5x on any game and they should be earned.

Thanks buddy yeah a little break there due to editing problems, sorry for the delay guys.

#1512 1 year ago

Just realized that of all the love and upvotes on first page post by the SDTM Team, there is one lowly downvote from Captain Neo...cmon Neo why the hate? Haha

Campaign to overturn Captain Neo’s downvote!!!

Hey Greg, was it a Red-headed myzomela ?

Great show btw.

#1514 1 year ago

Join Zach and Greg as they follow the migration of the black tailed Godwit. Episode 64 promises to be a refreshing take on the incredible bird watching scene in 2018

#1521 1 year ago

Great show once again guys, and hate that I missed seeing you at SFGE Zach.....spent too much time trying to qualify at the tournament, only to lose in the B finals to a "Super Secret Skillshot" on IMDN, so yes, first hand knowledge that it does exist!!!

Excited that you are getting a BM66!! I told y'all at Louisville that was the pin to get, as it had really started to turn the corner with the code.....and it's improved heaps since then! I also picked up a BM66 2 months ago as well, replaced my MMR....and don't miss MMR one bit!! Enjoy BM66, and crank up the volume, as it will have you jamming out to the tunes while defeating the villains!!! It really is turning into a Stern's best effort in the last 5 years!

...and yes, Greg <==> Cockatoo!!! The resemblance is there, Greg does remind me of Fred, Baretta's old pet!!!...but then again you guys are probably too young to remember that show!!!

#1522 1 year ago

Another great show! Really liked the concept idea of sharing pinball groups/gatherings from around the world. It's amazing to me how many underground type pinball communities there are that often are in your own back yard. Great groups of people and pinball enthusiasts. Would be interesting to see not only the game rooms but the groups enjoying them. Look forward to seeing them and hope it grows to be a show segment similar to a Letterman top 10. I do hope Zach can resist the urge to flip Batman again until Lymans final curtain (1.0) is lifted. I as do many suspect this will be one of his legacy creations. Don't worry Zach, there are many that love your values in the show I think the Bone crowd is simply more outspoken and like to promote Boneism is a cult following. He's like the Ying to your Yang, a perfect team. Keep up the Great work!

Good call on the BM66, my updated owner’s take is upcoming. Greg is definitely a big ol Cockatoo.

Great job guys, keep it up. Love the 180 turn on SW & BM66; I did the same! Got me a SW PRO right around the same time I did a lineup shakedown a few weeks ago and with 3 new to me pins, SW is my favorite. I feel the same on BM66 and want to get one, but man, that price for admission.....im holding off for JJPOTC. And FWIW; ketchup is always better on a hot dog

Part of me agrees, part of me disagrees. I became a fan of big multipliers in GOT - integrated perfectly. Otherwise, I agree 3-5x max. However, on SW, it does open another element/dimension to the game. You can leave the multipliers on the fab-3 bank of shots (2 inner loops + left ramp) and just leave them there and do just fine points wise. Or, you can play between those 3 shots with the single higher multiplier and go for bigger points. Or, you can expand the width of the game and risk your play and move the multipliers around the width of the pf.

Now the 3-bank does get used in a few modes as well as getting some needed tie fighters and/or increasing bonus multipliers. So there is an element to its use there; but do agree they could have done more with it.

All in all. I do like the SW multiplier system as it really adds a big risk/reward feature to the game. If the multipliers didn't go up to 20x, or even 40x at times, there would be no reason to risk hitting the 3-bank or try moving the multiplier around. I mean, when you hear that 'multipliers are doubled' call out - it's so dam enticing to decide whether you want to focus on progression, or change strategics and get some big points. So it really is integrated very well when you see its risk/reward elements.

You make a compelling argument and I can see players enjoying that different angle playing the game. The Chuck Wurts of the world love it. The Zachs of the world get a brain freeze with too much pinball math

Watched the show last night while eating at my fav pizza place in NYC (johns on bleeckers - always go here when I'm traveling). People were looking at my phone like who are these two guys this guy is watching.....and pinball on top of it? It's a small place so hopefully I was able to plug your show while enjoying a meal at the same time.

First off - Zach, I love you but what in the world? BM66? I couldn't believe it - YOU couldn't believe it. Now I know pinball is a true sickness b/c I thought this day would never come. On top of that, you're breaking the rule that I have trouble with too - buying mods for a game before you get the game! Here's the problem - mods are very hard to get your money back on. They are also very expensive. Knowing how you roll and the history on this game, I doubt it's "staying" so you'll end up taking it in the pants. I always try to play it for a couple of weeks before going crazy with the mods.

Really interested n Alice Cooper and how you like it. My only real difference with your opinions and mine was on Houdini (I'll imagine you said it wasn't better than ToM) but as I thought, that game seemed to fizzle out in the zach household and is now gone. Not to say you didn't like it in the end but I think the shortcomings we all mentioned had a toll in it's rather early departure (although I get you need new pinballs for the show). With AC coming in, I'm excited to hear your thoughts. On that note, I'm excited to hear feedback on TnA. For me, that game is absolutely blowing my mind in what pinball can be considering how stripped down it is - the game is the definition of addicting and fun. I also love the music too which plays maybe the biggest role along with the sound effects.

Great job guys

#1531 1 year ago

Yeah I know, had to own BM66 to see what all the code hype is about plus I love modding games, but yeah I’ll lose a couple dollars because of it. Houdini is still one of my favs, better than TOM in my opinion. I’m looking forward to ACNC but will grow impatient by mid July haha.

Also, do you guys have all your pin grades/ratings posted up anywhere?

#1547 1 year ago

Watching Greg geek out of JP makes this a top episode poor guy has waited so long to do this review. I'm actually surprised he hasn't moved The Lost World to the place of honor between you two guys. I do own both pins and I have never made it to the wizard mode on lost world but Mobile Labs is not super hard on mine. It's just getting every mode at the same time that is such a bitch.

Zack, purple on the JP topper is sacrilege, I have red, orange, yellow LEDs across the top and it lights it up just like the backglass.

ColorDMD is amazing on both pins.

#1548 1 year ago

Nice video guys!! I’ve actually never played either of those pins. Definitely need to after watching your video, they both look fun. Love the theme of Jurassic Park, I wish there was a modern Jurassic world pin too!

#1549 1 year ago

Great timing!! As a huge JP fan, I took the afternoon off and watched the new movie. Heard bad things about it but damn - I was entertained the entire time.

Just started watching the video and that JP you run through is in REALLY good condition. Is that yours?
