The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 30 – Midnight Magic

I bring you humble greetings, weary Web-wanderer, and I bid you welcome once again to The MoeGamer Podcast, featuring me and my good friend Chris Caskie of MrGilderPixels.

The MoeGamer Podcast is available in several places. You can subscribe to my channel on YouTube to stay up to date with both the video versions of the podcast and my weekly videos (including the Atari A to Z retro gaming series); you can follow on Soundcloud for the audio-only version of the podcast; you can subscribe via RSS to get the audio-only version of the podcast in your favourite podcast app; or you can subscribe via iTunes and listen on Spotify. Please do at least one of these if you can; it really helps us out!

Or you can just hit the jump to watch or listen to today’s episode right here on MoeGamer.

Today’s episode was a bit of a cultural exchange when it comes to our main topic: video pinball. Turns out I have experience at both the early and late end of the spectrum, while Chris’ experience is in the middle, “golden” age of the genre. We take in discussions of everything from Video Pinball on the Atari 2600 to Senran Kagura Peach Ball, via Flipnic, Devil’s Crush, Time Scanner and many more besides.

The topic discussion is, as always, preceded by a look at the recent happenings in the news. This time around, it’s a grab bag of little stories, including a new project from Suda51 and SWERY65; the distinct possibility a new Okami game is on the way; and a bunch of Muv-Luv goodness.

We’ve also been playing some interesting games recently — I have, of course, been all over Gun Gun Pixieswhile Chris has been enjoying Hardcore Mecha and… exploring Contra: Rogue Corps.

Thanks as always for your support; we hope you enjoy the new episode!
