I sent this in as an email to the podcast itself. So I'm going to do a first (and be quite lazy in the process) of copying and pasting the email itself. :)

"The host of a podcast called Geek Gamer Weekly (http://www.geekgamerradio.com) that I'm occasionally on as a guest host. Unless I'm mistaken, this is his first pin (the second being Earthshaker), and was in "less than stellar shape" when he got it. But it seems to have restored beautifully and is a great high res video of it being shown off and played. In my personal -and limited- opinion ... damned well worth a view. And no, before someone asks, I'm not trying to whore out the podcast itself. It's a good video overall.

But on a side note, the podcast is worth listening to for tech geeks, especially with I'm on it because I'm me and I'm fuckin' great."

Okay ... I'm going to leave the typo in ... apparently I'm not that fuckin' great because I used "with" instead of "when".

Thankfully I've got the Williams pinball collection for the PS2, so I can play Funhouse whenever I want. :) Sure ... it's not the Wii version (GASP ... David's saying something nice about the Wii!!! Yeah, the Williams pinball collection rocks on the Wii. Shit console, but some STELLAR games on it.) but it's still a DAMNED good purchase. Even though I have to TOTALLY disagree with Scott on the presentation of the menus and the videos and whatnot. Even on the Wii, they are low resolution HORRIBLE videos that should've just been left out. They add nothing to the experience of playing these great tables and actually take away from the overall package because of their shit quality. But I still gave the package a 9.0 when I originally reviewed it (on the Wii ... if you listen to the podcast or dig through my previous posts and what I've debated on other forums, you'll understand why I point that out. lol). Here's me being a whore : http://wastedseconds.com/?p=1779

But even so ... it's a good video of a nicely restored machine. And it happens to be one of my favorite pins next to Haunted House.

Crap ... I just now got (despite the fact that I sent it on the 20th) one of those emails back saying "sorry, this email couldn't be delivered."? Is there something oddball going on over there?

No we got it.

I have that email set to forward a copy to me and my server is having issues so the bounceback is from my forwarder but we do have the email.
