I always enjoy Zach's comments about a game so I wish he would engage in the review. He should just say from the start that his review will only discuss what he really likes about the game or things he finds interesting (neither good or bad). That allows him to be totally honest without putting him in a difficult position as a distributor. Let Greg provide the negative comments when they are warranted.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

Third-ed.
It's not like its insider trading or something serious. Its pinball. We are talking about expensive toys. I agree that you should just have a disclaimer for the uninformed that you are also a vendor. You tended to "gush" over new titles before you were a vendor anyway. It's not "shilling". You just seem like an excitable guy who is really into his hobby (oh uh, disclaimer, it's also his livelihood)

Although, now that I think about it...there could be a problem the other way around, where his company is trying to sell a pin that he personally thinks isn't so great. Hard for him to do a video for flipNout where he says, "Come on down and buy the latest Stern!" but then on SDTM he says, "Man, this new Stern kinda sucks!" This crossed my mind specifically when it came to that new SW mini-pin that just got released. Its not the kind of machine that SDTM would probably devote a whole review to anyway, but I could see a conflict there between business interests and SDTM interests. So kind of anti-shilling in a way.

Just thought that might be another reason for Zach to not review machines, in case they're bad. Luckily, we live in an age where most new pinball machines are astoundingly good, when you really think about it. Prices maybe not so good, but sounds, music, rules, gameplay, are all pretty high for just about every machine that comes out now.

EDIT: Just saw Burley's post, and he has the right idea. I think we're of a similar mindset.

I've never heard Zach hate a game. He has had games he didnt give glowing reviews (deadpool, metallica) but he doesnt seem to be overly harsh on games he doesnt enjoy.
(Also Zach liked Houdini so.....lol)

I just saw your " Pinball cribs done right " episode . When I first saw the episode I did think he came off a bit cocky and arrogant . I haven't seen the series you were trying to emulate , but now explained , I understand where you were going . Besides us pinheads a lot of people don't know these games . I personally would like to see more about the room these games are in and maybe 30 seconds on each game and explaining any mods they might have . I love seeing people's collections and looking forward to seeing many more .

Any reason to think Cassandra may be buying or getting an E3? Figured you had some time to chat her up and that might have come up. Hope you interviewed her for a future podcast. Can’t wait to hear it.

BTW she looks great, much better than you boys do.

NEW SDTM & THE WHOLE TEAM IS HERE!

The gang discusses and shows viewers the 2019 Chicago Pinball Expo

#4809 51 days ago

Awesome video! Great team!
Enjoyed it. Thx SDTM.

#4810 51 days ago

Another great episode. Thanks guys! I noticed that your podcast feed on itunes doesn't update anymore. Did you guys just decide it wasn't worth it to rip the audio and maintain a separate audio-only version?

#4811 47 days ago

Greg

I think you said in your recent review of Jurassic Park that you were annoyed that the extra ball animation had a dinosaur that didn't fit with the franchise.

It is true that that dinosaur (armadillo type with swinging tale) was in a battle in Jurassic world, not Jurassic park but it DID briefly feature in Jurassic park 3 by the river bank when the boat was going by.

Yes, this is real geek sh#t.

Keep up the good work team SDTM.

SDTM HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

Greg and Zach costume up to review Elvira House Of Horrors Pinball Machine

Disclaimer: SDTM does not rate flapper gap and actually put effort into their show. The boys are in bed with Gary Stern and in the pocket of Big Pinballceuticals.

Oh and special thanks to James aka lodgingdolphin for helping us with the overview last second

Great episode - I enjoyed the costumes

Excellent choice for costumes (regardless of Den Den’s opinion). Made for a very enjoyable show.

Perfection

Maybe if they ever make a Stranger Things pin we will dress up as the characters for the review

When things get loud you need compression. A good compressor will fix that

#4821 42 days ago

Good to see you guys back in the saddle! Zach, I thought it was a smart move when you started playing the role of MC and handed off the rating to someone else since you are unavoidably bias as a distributor. You literally feed your family by selling these games so naturally you won't give a negative rating. Neither would I!

#4822 42 days ago

Agree with Zach - I was surprised how nice the game shot. Played a number of games at Expo. It only took the first game or two and that was immediately apparent. I knew it would be good, but it shoots very, very, well. Full schwing .

#4823 42 days ago

Those costumes are epic! Shawiiiing....lmao. Good stuff guys.

#4824 42 days ago

ZMeny - also met your wife and chatted very briefly in JJ's party room at Expo. I didn't see Greg's mom though. Or at least nobody with vendor ID that said Greg's Mom on it.

That would be hilarious to see a woman with a name tag that says Greg's mom on it! I wonder if she knows that she's an internet sensation?

Great episode, great idea on Wayne & Garth! Gotta hand it too you zmeny , you almost sounded like Wayne in a couple of the parts!

....but gotta agree, the volume was disproportionally too loud & shrill in the loud sections.

#4827 42 days ago

Funny shit boys! Funny shit.

#4828 42 days ago

Good stuff Greg and Zach! Just watched the last 2 episodes! Good to see the STDM team all meet one place. I'm glad you are rateing machines. Selling is going to be easy now. All the Timmeys are going to be lining up to buy now! Just add vagina muffs for the ears in the package. That way no ears get hurt.

#4829 42 days ago

Another Well made episode.
Thank you

#4830 41 days ago

Call Flip N Out, the newest Puppy Suprise distributor- Zach has all the latest and greatest puppies and accessories!

Nice to see Zach giving reviews again!
Costumes were well done, but campy horror would have gone with the review better for this machine.

Can't wait for the next one.

#4833 17 days ago

Hey Guys,
Thought i would give this post a little bump as there has been no action in a long while. Was kinda hoping to see a Thanksgiving special. You know Zack dressed as a turkey and Greg ready to carve him

#4835 14 days ago

Good video.

@ ZMeny - Hey, I was watching some football yesterday. When did you start playing quarterback for the Bears ? That guy kinda looks like you.

This wasn't the first Bears game you watched, where were you backing me up last year?

Quoted from C_S_S:

Eli Manning...no. Mitch Trubisky, yes.

Dead ringer.

#4839 6 days ago

Sorry I gotta go with Eli Manning as Zachs twin. Both guys are close though.

With the helmet on him I will agree with you but with the helmets off I think he looks like Eli more.

#4842 5 days ago

I wouldn't be surprised if we see Zach wearing a helmet on the next episode of SDTM .

No he will wait until the next halloween show and dress up as Da Bears QB. Greg can be a cheerleader i guess.

#4844 5 days ago

I want to see Greg's Mom on an episode ! Referee. Can't wait a year to figure it out though.

Maybe it's a This or That - Zach : Trubisky or Eli

#4845 5 days ago

Helmets off...you just have to find the right angle.

#4846 5 days ago

Yep - that's Zach. Same expression he had the first time somebody told him not to put ketchup on hot dogs.

I don't see any resemblance to Eli manning. Trubisky on the other hand is his doppleganger.
