    Quoted from LOTR_breath:

    Newsflash, Mando sucks.

    Yeah no. Vector sucks.

    #2603 37 days ago

    So Mando is in their league? Come on man, you’re better than that. Mando isn’t the greatest game ever, but it’s a very fun solid game.

    #2604 37 days ago

    Honest opinion. Mando doesn't suck out loud. But on a scale of 1-10, I can only give it about a 5 or 6.

    What does the topper look like?

    #2609 34 days ago
    Quoted from gamera9:

    What does the topper look like?

    Does the silence about the topper means it is going to be super fantastic once it is shown? Hopefully it is mechanical and possibly it includes a game feature. The topper should already have been made and sat atop Godzilla when Stern revealed the game. I wish it shipped with the LE’s, to help justify the huge price increase. Irony - Stern employees have compared their Godzilla pin to Bally’s Addams Family pin. They chose a pin for comparison that came with a topper on every model. Stern’s topper is not ready yet. Hence my statement, Stern should have included the topper on their LE’s, at least.

    Not featured is the broken Rollergames immediately to my right which made me sad until I remembered how much I love the shirt I was wearing.

    Don’t tell Zach though, if he asks then I think it’s crap and I only bought it so I could inevitably ruin it with pit stains.

    Zach, your audio has been very soft the last few shows i’ve listen to. Seems to be a combination of low audio for yourself because everyone else sounds fine, like Dennis and Greg, and that you are purposely talking softly. In addition, you have got into the habit of trailing off at the end of a lot of your sentences as if you are trying to speak under your breath for effect.

    Whatever the reasons or cause, this is an audio podcast and if you were going to say something, speak clearly and not under your breath. Otherwise what is the point of listening?

    My apologies, I've been trying to tweak my audio a bit in response to others saying levels are too high... hahaha But thank you, I will figure it out some day

    Quoted from ZMeny:

    It's actually more than your audio level, you are actually trailing off at the end of sentences and often making comments under your breath. I think that's for humorous effect? But that only works in comedy when the audience can hear your under-the-breath-comment and the person you're speaking with cannot.

    If no one can hear it, then why bother saying it?

    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Special Guest Cohost: Greg Bone

    At some point when Greg is on, you need to use "New Age Girl" just for that one line (no spoilers if you're unfamiliar - you'll know it when you hear it).

    For purposes of re-theming a game, I generally consider the work of a pinball machine to be 1/3 art, 1/3 mechanical, 1/3 software. (This is a very basic way of looking at it, but it probably works.) So if you re-theme, you generally save the mechanical, always have to redo all art, and software is probably 33%-100% redone depending on how well everything meshes. So if you take the classic figure of $1M to design a game, you're looking at about 1/2-2/3 of a mil to do it.

    The math changes if you have inventory to get rid of, which happened pretty obviously a couple times while I was at Stern. It can easily cost more NOT to re-theme it depending on what you have in stock.

    If you are watching Squid Game - watch it in Korean (as it was made) with subtitles.

    The overdubs on Netflix shows are horrible.

    When you watch it as per the original, you hear the actors doing their thing. The subs make you pay 100% attention to the show - not dick around on your phone while sorta listening to the TV. The viewing experience is much better.

    Pretty much all the TV shows we watch now are Euro or Asian with subtitles. They think outside the box and come up with new ideas. I can’t remember the last network TV show we watched.

    My 10c.

    #2637 20 days ago

    Dark is another fantastic show that needs the subtitles. It needs your undivided attention at all times.

    Yeah that’s a great show. And yep - if you look away for a minute, you’ll be totally lost.

    Not one for the phone twiddlers!
