Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSS Midwest Gaming Classic Continuing coverage of the Midwest Gaming Classic, I moved to my favorite part of gaming. Pinball machines. I am fascinated with everything about pinball. I walk through the Arcade, seeing a lot of the games I grew up with. Older and newer Pinball machines all in one room. Of course, there were also console games. My favorite one was Sinistar. I ran into Jon from Pynball – a website that helps you find old machines. Whether you want parts or want to buy one outright, Pynball is a full listing for you to search through. BTW – If you want to find your favorite Pinball games from years past, there is a database over at impd.com

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSS Midwest Gaming Classic While down at the Midwest Gaming Classic, I started on the vendor floor to see all the cool items you can purchase. Video games, Pinball machines, parts for machines, game consoles and more. Old consoles, game swag and more. I ran into Carol, from Wandcrafters. They make wizard’s wands. Using a lathe, Carol has expanded the process to keychains, magnifying glasses and more. They even had some pens made from cell phone boards. Wandcrafters has also created wands out of antlers that were shed. She sticks mostly to wood for her designs. This is the 10th anniversary for the Midwest Gaming Classic.
The coolest thing about the LIVE SHOW is you never know who is going to show up. This week started slow, but that all changed when Jeri Ellsworth showed up. Jeri created the Commodore 64 joystick – 30 C64 games on one joystick controller. We talked about Pinball machines and Video Arcade systems. Jeri was also building a new studio, so we talked about ways to make the room less noisey. Jeri even talked about creating a new video capture system. We also had Art from twoguystech.com, as well as Brokenshovel and husker_fan. All in all another great show. Hour 1
