Brokentoken Classic Arcade and Pinball Podcast
About This Show
Join co-hosts Brent and Whitney as they share a ‘southern view’ (and some definite drawl) on the vibrant hobby of collecting, restoring and playing the arcade and pinball classics from the late 70′s to today. The podcast covers everything from the golden age of arcade gaming to the newest pinball titles currently hitting the streets and everything in between. Add in technical talk segments, collecting and restoration stories, interviews and sit-in guests as well as game room updates, forum news, listener mail and twitter questions (with the occasional live streams) and you’ve got a couple hours of your life you’ll never get back! GAME ON!

57: They Went Straight to Plaid!
Yep – we admit it – we go “straight to plaid” in this months’ episode. We tried REAL HARD LIKE to not let the discussion around Stern’s new Star Wars Pinball capitalize the episode, but we couldn’t help ourselves. We analyze it from up one side and down the other and still net a solid zero at the very end of it all. Fortunately we have “Total Nuclear Annihilation” on the horizon and that promises to save the day – in more way than one.
So, on with what promises to be a really fun show. We work through our monthly updates, as Brent just completed a pretty large group buyout on some killer titles (and a lot of PC10 carts, as well). He picks up his Jurassic Park and lays in a total surprise game pickup as well. Whitney discusses the next few chapters in the Sky Skipper Project and discusses some cabinet swaps he’s got going on.
We cover off on a small soldering Q&A, review some hardware and for the first time in a few months we spend even more of Brent’s money. All this, a "Nip-It" alert to end all alerts, and some feedback as well!
