The Polybius Conspiracy: Mind-Altering Video Game or Urban Legend?
"Gonna be talking about the police conspiracy today. Pleaded starts as a kind of vintage video gamer urban legend in the two thousands. Actually the urban legend goes police was a mystery arcade game that apparently appeared in several portland. Suburbs around nineteen eighty-one the machines cabinet body. I guess was painted entirely black and it was rumored that the stern looking men would sometimes visited the arcade where police was placed to collect information from the machine possibly testing the players response to its psychoactive effect before disappearing with said information the game at a strange effect on its players also. It's described as being literally addictive with lines forming around the machines and fights erupting over. Who had played next. That doesn't seem that abnormal but players also supposedly suffered from horrible side effects including amnesia insomnia night terrors and hallucinations. The company that created the police game in most accounts of the story is called boy here. We go cynics lotion. Which means in german sense delete or sensory deprivation. The words meanings are derived from the german words. Ciga- senses and lotion to extinguish or to delete. Though the they're combined this is a bit of a
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a new 16-bit beat-'em-up
"Needs to Turtles shredders revenge. Who thought this one coming nobody. I drink turtle's brawler stuff. Still right and that's like the one type. Eternal game that gets made besides japanese. Yeah i action games not good once. Yeah i mean yeah. We hope it's good. It has good pedigree behind it. Trivia games The guy did the one. I enjoyed last year. Very much panzer paladin. What like. I was not that interested in this because only because so many of these throwbacks end up being disappointing. Right like you're so jazz and exciting. It comes out and it's fine. You know and then and then and then it's over but this one every single portion of the announcement. I'm mike okay. Okay developer like good like they're hitting all the right notes. I could not be more jazzed. I think this is going to be the one that like actually delivers on the promise of like what. Sort of a modern throwback can be. Well yeah except that it's it's being Published by dot edu. Who last year brought a street bridge. Four which is also another great modern classic broader exactly johm. It looks so cool. it's reg. I'm not a journalist guy. So i'll i'll connect to this on the brawler level. It streets ridge four had anything that was like kind of like a meta gain. That kind of like did something. Brawlers didn't like an rpg system like mercy ransom or like castle crashers or anything like that. It had an interesting scoring mechanism. Where the longer you went. Without taking damage higher your score would go which is kinda cool and a stressful to me. I liked it. It also had a really really great animation. Of course herbals game is going for classic. Look like it is a sequel to the original turtles. Arcadian nearly nineties Our producer is writing me. That turtles in time is so much fun now. I played all the early turtles brawlers. they're fine. I played them like crazy. When i was a kid. But you guys know how i feel about brawlers need something extra or just too boring other. Otherwise it's good for you know ten dollars worth of quarters in the arcade galway's grant them that but i don't want that in my home and even with four people i'm gonna play through once maybe and it was to see all the cool pixel art and stuff so that'd be nice in this and i'm sure it'll be interesting but back in the day brawlers were cutting edge graphics. There's nothing that looked as good as them. And that was the reason for me to play them like run racers were first coming out not gonna play daytona usa ever again but i was pretty excited about daytona usa. When it was at a bank of machines in the arcade. I'll close up ten dollars in quarters into this machine. But i won't buy it for ten dollars. I wouldn't do that. It's the arcade experience in your with your friends and you're like how long can this quarter get mean this round. How much have improved since my last order experience. Exactly yeah maybe something will modify a cabinet and we can all play together to extreme or something in the future. that'd be cool way to experience. What if the game free but every time you wanted to play again at cost you asked about that. And nobody's really done. The twenty five cent per game system microsoft tried doing that with xbox live arcade border per play. It was something like that. We had to pay each play of these classic arcade games. Oh yeah one of the castle. Vania games like that. One of the xp la's spinoffs. Maybe joe was the castle vania. Excellent spin off that was like that zoom in and zoom out one which is was the cooperative one. That was really cool. I don't remember the pace anyway. You are right sam. I beat dragon and the arcade back in the day. But only because my grandpa just kept giving me quarters eventually my sister and i just four star way to our way to the end of the game where you bany or jimmy. I'm a lifelong me. There are only jimmy on the eighty. S yeah i think it's corrected or it was originally correct in their arcade The i have like a little kid. I had don't really fun. Time at the arcade playing with a friend through the simpsons. Game those my best brawler Experience we had happened to come in to a ten dollars in quarters or something. We got last boston. Did not beat the las boss. Still never finished the simpsons but it was so exhilarating and so illuminating to go through the first couple levels which costs you a buck fifty. Probably in the next couple levels which cost you probably four dollars and then the last boss which cost you four dollars by itself adds up in the set of funny way. It's it's you know it's those. Were designed to your quarters. At a point where people stopping go competitive with quarters and getting high scoring with pacman staff and of course the next era of arcades we all know with street fighter two competitive stuff that wet bridge of high tech brawlers like you know as corner starting with call it by the way. Yeah i actually have. I have a lot of affinity for brawlers. Who doesn't everybody loves him. But like you're you're completely right that. Although i do have an affinity for them like they're kind of garbage in like you know the bosses have invincibility frames and Just lockable moves. And just you know total screen wipes and like clearly like a super high level of skill. That stuff isn't a problem but for like everyday people like they just become impossible to the point. Where like you said. They're designed to you. Know to continue. Yeah so but that's why seeing them come. Home is so exciting. Because then they don't have that limitation that requirement on the commercial side on the on the capitalist side like they can just design a really really cool fudd brawling fighting combat system without the need for a bunch of bullshit bosses that That i can afford another quarter. That's casper crashers. I think they did a good job with it. Yup tina this announcement anything for you In the sense that i played like the early nineties. Konami think version the arcade version back in the day. So i had the same fondness that anybody else would just Having an opportunity to to play multiplayer game when that's a reality in the future at some point when you can sit down on a couch next to a friend and actually play the stuff. I'm also not a huge brawler fan. There's a level of consistency in sameness to them. After a while when you play them back to back. But i loved. River city ransom. Um so. there's definitely some affection in my heart for the genre overall.

"You can set up the robots to shoot at each other or you can make them follow you into walls okay. And there's this cleverness to the dumbness of the that just makes a lot of fun. So i definitely want mentioned berserk and the other one i had on here if for aesthetics if nothing else for its aesthetics is cuba. It's such a bizarre game. It's like a trip but it's brilliant in the way that This just weird thing. What is this thing you know. There's just hopping all over the place. But it's it's really in the sound effects that go along with I love the feel of playing q-bert. It just missed my list And know i love. I love the games from this period. And i could go on. Those were the really big ones That i still had that. I was considering you run the retro game deconstruction zone Tell us about that was kind of it was not something i planned out ahead of time. It was just. I was i was going through. I'd just it just sort of hit me one day. I wanna study video game history. And i wanna play through some of these games and see how gaming came to be and it just started as me playing through some of the classic games and just seeing how much i like them. In the more i play the more i wanted to say And the more. I wanted to say the more i wanted to code and actually like when whenever i thought of like okay. Why don't i just take this apart and find out or try this and so What it ended up being is basically. I pick apart the mechanics Study the connections between various games through time and in some cases. Most recently with the centipede which we should've mentioned by the way i should mention. Santa pete is an excellent arcade game from that era..

"I really enjoyed the story. Of how john commack pulled an all nighter and basically recreated the side scrolling thing that they had in mareo that was previously impossible to do in a pay say because of the way memory worked and stuff and he he figured it out and i just the the code or in me loves that story of loves that moment of being able to figure out like oh if i do this remove these pixels will track disposition hair and all that kind of stuff i just yeah i i really any kind of made me appreciate mary more. Even though you know Of never really really. You know played mario car and enjoy that and i have mario call my switch. I don't think i've ever to my memory actually played any of the super. Mario's data is amazing to me. Honestly i mario has become Nintendo's used him for like as far as recognizable video game characters. He maybe he may be well over pacman at this point. I'm not sure But that that's part of the problem too is like these original games Lots of people still love them. But people associate mario with so many other things at the same time that they may not may be that many people. Don't i take it for granted. I thought everybody do these. Original mario games and you should absolutely try out at some point especially the The sides the traditional side school is the ones they still make like the new super mario brothers they call them Those are very similar and absolutely worth trying. I think you get most of the same experience there that you would in these original like super my brothers from nintendo And it's even more fun because it's multiple players so you can kill each other like you can knock each other off the platforms and Just arrange into somebody gets killed by a monster. If if you want to work cooperatively to beat it. I don't know i think that stuff is is is a lotta fun but yeah i mean for mario. It was like it was part of our language back. When i was kid. You know. I think by by the time i go into fooling real opinions about consoles and the ps within them. I think i'd already built up. A bit of tribalism around saiga. And as i got older and as i got into my teenage years that tribalism only solidified only calcified more and so when it came to the dreamcast. My mate. a friend of mine into this whole thing of just he As a young lad with his pocket money he just picked up every console that he could Every sega console so to my memory he had every single one.

"That's a tough one. Yeah i thought about setting up one of those like multi game cabinets. We've been looking into constructing one of those at home but jeez i. This is just as hard as it was picking my list. I you know. I might have to go with like pacman just because you know in addition to me loving the game It's the kind of thing that has a broad appeal just about anybody can go in there and play pacman. You know it's like it's easy to understand widely recognized. But i don't know it's it's something i'll probably give you another another answer in a month and then the next month i'll give you another horn so i can understand that. Yeah is pinball arcade game i would say not Pinball is is is its own thing. it's you know it. There's nothing wrong with it as it is. Puff puff acceptable guy. Yeah it's fine but it's got its own history and tradition that is mostly independent of video games. There was this period very early on in video game history around the same time as the golden age on computers when they were doing a lot of pinball simulations in those were some of the most popular computer games in the early eighties For apple twos in particular. And that's you know that's fine but it's kind of like when you know when hollywood does musical. It's like they're mostly doing of musical and not a movie. You know it's fine. It's just that. I attended for the stuff that i study in stuff that i'm really interested in. I'm more interested in the stuff that video games as video games And how that medium really came into its own in created its own unique things. involves impulsive fun game. You might find at an arcade. But it is not necessarily an arcade game That's fine i i. I've fallen that in the same kind of category and also i share a similar history to you..

"What's up everybody welcome to game spook episode six, hundred I am Demon Hayfield I'm your host always today I'm joined by Tina a real mini or Tina Immediate Ville which has always been my dream. To. Slay, born. Scoop. and Michael Pain. Swain Ooh we're, of course, the CO-OP, Mejia's split-screen coop majors. Of course, we've got a great spooky show for you this week lots of spooky emails from our listeners telling us stories about when when they had the wits scared out of them by video games, you talk about some real news about some. Impressive Games that you can now play on your switch. Thanks to streaming but I. Actually learned a new spell this year conjurer of cheap tricks that I am. I learned to spell. I learned. To. Some. That's the towns you summon a Maga. Breaking. Shed minutes this amid sure. Not going to feed them after midnight and went I know the rules Knows the Maga noises yeah. On the microphone immediately that's great instincts. The first time Damon brought can't go to the office. His mouth is over the Mike immediately and Damon was like ten years ago. You GotTa start somewhere. Oh My friend. Thank you. I'm glad they're still making Bagua costumes for children. They converted all the unsold Iwo costumes seriously mogotsi walk to something I didn't even know probably then back to modify shaven as a baby yoga whatever it was probably that horrible Dhabi from Harry Potter I know that was That was a very cute mogg way. Okay he was. A. He was in he was enslaved. That's what was wrong with diabetes wrong with his left but not hinder the carrot. That's more wizard society. Problem. Dhabi's that he looks like a shaved Mog Y. You kinda does yeah. An old one one that grew really old bath time. Anyway. We begin this week with an email from Ethan He. wrote in to say Hello Goose Camp Counselors how missing breathe doesn't realize they're actually called. I. Hope it's keeping a your campers safe and alive with spooky season in full force. What are your favorite horror games from across the generations? I guess that's another way of saying all time. I looked up I was trying to memorize in a Not, blind panic before this like, yeah. Great generation where they slotted in I didn't know if we had to do start. where. Did you start? Because I did like eighties and nineties but they're all the games are like there's horror games eighties but they're like dumb. Dumb. Started in the full motion video era because games like Phantasmagoria dark seed are the first. Games were explicitly scary I remember playing. I have no mouth and I, scream ply I saw that game for the first time I'd never heard that before but seventh guest was the Dorky game that my friends that had actors. People pay be on camera I should say our walk kind of acting scenes that it's like watching a really bad dinner theater and that was like the horror game and then there's alone in the dark, which is an actual again but I never played that back then. It depends if you differentiate between horror and anxiety 'cause alone in the dark at that anxiety that resident evil. executed. So beautifully where you move slowly and the thing is coming towards you and you don't WanNa die and you feel very like ooh but I do think that's different than the horror of the while the attempted horror of like a seventh guest with they're trying to be spooky. I hated that different generations and generations idea a horror game was that they made you feel helpless and and slow. I don't like that idea. So like the start of resident evil the very first thing. I. Don't like much as remakes or like give me a bunch of bunch of action maybe not enough ammo make actually useful and then scare me I like that feeling because I don't feel helpless in real life I feel that way maybe in a scary dream or something but I really earlier in all power wizard. However. But I I remember the first time. I was really scared by game was just like being afraid of losing my progress unlike like will four from an instant kill from a plug us which is like sucks. Systems. There's very few AMMO supply caches and you just like are trying to get through this really difficult game. So it's actually legit scary when a Scorpion comes out of a neck hole and decapitates instantly because you're like, well, I. also lost forty five minutes of Gameplay. That's scary. We'll see that's why Har- general even just irrespective of gaming is wonderful genre because there's so. Many different kinds of scares. So if you're going the Zayed's track like I I made a list of some notable horror games I've played over the years and like blood borne is the kind of thing that scares me because it's difficult mom and blurred had like a more robust coop capability which was great for me because I got like bring a buddy along helped me through. But then you have things like the survival are element is more about like how are you with your resources which may be my top survival horror game is Alan wake but boy did I get stuck in a couple of places where like you're out of flashlights and you have a bunch of people running after you and you're trying to jump between like generator generator. Energize streetlamp to another streetlamp but there are certain areas where you just like it kind of pushes you into a point where it's really difficult to progress which not necessarily my favorite whereas like dead space is all about like the jump scares and some of the Gore kind of scares too. So there's just tons of areas you can go through when it comes to hard. My earliest experience is house of the destitute and arcade game. From the nineties late nineties and that was just sort of like I. Don't know that it was necessarily scary as probably scary for me at the time because I was younger and was very tense, and obviously you have to put quarter after quarter to actually make it through all levels. But. That's more like I suppose action element kind of. Like zombies are inherently scary sort of game as opposed something like like inside which which we talk about on scoop all the time, which is more of a like cerebral kind of. Psychological, scary

Is. So. Heartwarming. This is from business insider I. Love this list. Nathan. This is so good. The first one drive in movies this has been great. Obviously cove is kind of forced this onto us, but the drive in movies are great. Especially if you're classic car guy like me and you got the convertible classic car and you got the awesome lady to watch the movie with that's fun puzzles about puzzles. Now, I personally have never been a big jigsaw puzzle guy mainly because I lose interest quickly but I've taken on many. Not, completed very many but that's fun and by the way great creative outlet for kids I laughed when I saw this one, Joe Roller Skating he you know I get some great memories from the eighties at Roller Skating rinks leave it at that but it was never good roller skater stationary now actually very much excites me. Andrea, Bell. Is the director of insights at a trend forecasting company commented on this for town and Country Magazine on the rebirth of the boom of stationary. Again, she said everyone is experiencing digital fatigue. So we are turning into tangible things. And this is very exciting to see handwritten notes. The stationary returning by the way stationary is is great not just because it's allowing you to to handwrite things which I'm just such a big believer in, but also the personal style that you can add to the personal note board games are back on a big board Game Maniac I love Board Games. The reason this is significant is because it involves community and. When we're playing board games we're looking at each other we're talking to each other were listening to each other we're laughing with each other we're competing with each other. Hopefully, we're not arguing with each other, but I will tell you many Coleman, when I was growing up with my brother he and I would compete to the death even over a board game. So there are many times while my dad had to say dudes. Chill out but great memories their role through the rest of these really quick bread baking Genn very labor intensive activity.

As a dad I have a love hate relationship with inflatable pools lots of love setting it up. Kids are excited about it, filling it up. Kids are excited. You get to watch him play the minute they're done with it. The hate comes out for the DADS right? Because then you got an empty, the stupid thing ruins, your lawn gotta dry that nasty money thing out and put it up. So there you go I get some therapy on that issue video games I I didn't understand how this made the list. I really didn't because in my world with three kids. Video Games didn't go way but I think more adult probably playing video games that I will tell you confess that I have one video game I love playing I did love playing madden, which is the football and the NBA live with my boys until they started to destroy me. At after I would get whipped every time Joe I decided I'm not interested in getting my teeth kicked in every time I play my boys. So I've gone to video game golf and so places a great and so I can zone out for about twenty five thirty minutes rarely does this happen? But every once in a while and the kids are all doing something dad likes to go up there and play eighteen holes of golf and it is very relaxing. I must say so all for that surfing. Vinyl records very exciting that vinyl records and trading cards. The last two of the fifteen things let me tell you why like that. Joe. You know this Madison. This is a word she doesn't even understand. I think Nathan gets his little mass. There's some ageism going on here. Poor Madison is that anything vintage? I'm in. I don't even have to have a personal interest in it but if you talk to me about vintage or show me something vintage, I'm very intrigued by and so the baseball trading cards.

"arcade game" Discussed on Budget Arcade: Free to play gaming
"Kong hello and welcome to whatever this game is called. I haven't named it yet. I don't know maybe I will is it actually works but it could be a complete mess our contestants this week our Mark blue here. And what else to tell us tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? I heard the tail that you went hiking one time. I had been hiking in my life. Okay, great movies on Aaron over here, it's Elliot. Hi. I enjoy potatoes. Okay, so gentle let me tell you how this game is going to work as the host. I don't need to know anything as far as right or wrong answers. What I will do is present you with a category and within that category long will name provide me with answers that fit that category. For example, if I said types of pasta you would each in turn give me a type of place was Anya spaghetti. Today, oh I go back go back and forth. And don't worry. Should you run out of types of pasta to think of you can just make one up and as long as you don't get caught by your mom your opponent, you can keep going if your opponent catches you and I'll do a little research and I'll be the judge. Then you lose that round. The first person to win three out of five rebounds wins the game. I hope that makes sense. I hope I explained it well. I didn't get the rules at a time. So it's it's fun. Yeah, you also have a subjective timer. If I feel like you're stalling or take too long. I will give you a warning from that warning you like about three to four to five seconds. Who knows. I'm not actually keeping a timer. I just decide who wins in the end. It's kind of like the NBA it's not really real. It's just a bubble. It's like w e w n b a second. I was like dude, come on. It's probably not fixed. Have you guys been listening to whistle blower The Package cast never mind that on my list to get to know? It's really good. Okay, so did you know the WNBA bubble is called the wobble? Okay, let's we're going to edit that out. That's for the best food. I thought I felt bad making a joke about the WNBA. But yeah, you're horrible people. Okay. Yeah. Those are the different library on to this show. Right. So we're watching can can get out further. I'm just saying. Yeah, we're good at all right. Stop it. I'm the host. I'm in charge here. All right. So let's get our home first round and to decide who gets to go first. I've picked a number between 1 and 10 mark. Would you like to guess first off? Okay 5. Okay and Elliot, I'll go six. The number. I selected was to Mark you get to go first. All right. All right. Are you ready for the first category? I am the category is launch titles games that released the same day on the console there on makes sense. Okay. Okay. Okay. I specifically want physical reps that were in stores. So like some sort of weird download only thing I don't really want that now again, you can bluff if you can't think of anything or just throw something out there. So Mark you are going to go first you are on the clock. What is your first launch title and it can be any console. Any console again? Do we need a name is a console? Cuz that's also pretty good. Okay. No. Yes. Yeah. I change my mind name the console name the council. Yes, you know this is how this works. I just it's by my own whims. It adds another layer. All right. So Mario 64 Nintendo sick, man. That was added ice know. Why did I know that but then you weren't a 64. I'm just going to the last Saw another one before he gets a chance to think of it. I'm going to go with pilot Wings 64000. What about the actions? All right, just sit back. You guys keep going. You know what you're doing so pilot. I have the honor to I know on the 64 that came out as discussed previously that is a horrible system and it launched would just do games. So mark your back on a clock. All right, let's go with Ocarina of Time 3DS. Oh, that's a good one. I'm sorry. I was thinking the same but I'm going to call BS so, okay. All right. So allow me so we are going to go again. I should have made me preface this but I don't really care. We're going to go with us release dates cuz that's where we live the Nintendo. Who it might have been launched? I don't think so. Cuz I bought one launch day and I had to settle for pilot wings. I was going to say pilotwings 3DS, but I didn't want to I didn't want to piggyback off of so it launched on February 26th. So and Ocarina of Time 3DS launched in June 2011. First point those two Elliot. I got lucky though. I I was thinking of calling it but I I didn't know I have to remember the bad one my nose out of it because I'm all right. So here's a fun fact pilotwings 3DS steel diver and Nintendogs + Cats where the three launched out. There was also the Street Fighter game. I bought a 3DS at lunch so I know how horrible the launch lineup it was cuz I would have been stoked to get an Ocarina remake at launch. Well, look I just looked up to the Nintendo sixty-four titles. You want to take a guess with the other three are there's more than the two. I thought it was only to go. Go ahead. I got rock Turok dinosaur hunter Rod. Well, that's good. I gotta know that scourged FIFA 64 In another one, which I cannot pronounce and I do not think we got it as a release psyche. Oh, hey boo shogi, and I just butchered the heck out of that. So I apologize no worries. But that's what the list of it is that I want to see when I quick Google search it. So so you launch trials were just Violet Wings in Super Mario though. Okay, so that's what I thought. So I guess breath breath of the wild would have been a easy one. Oh, yeah breath of the wild would have been an easy one. Yeah, but you failed you failed, but that's okay. It's best two-out-of-three. You're never out of the game until the game is over. So being that you have lost the first round. I'm going to allow you to select to either go first or allow Elliot to go first this round. You know the guest should go first so, okay. All right, how about it? I'm actually pretty proud of this this this topic. Okay. So it's going to kind of I'm going to be asking for a lot of games in some of these categories and that's not going to change now. I want to know EA Games Electronic Arts games that are not Sports titles public yeaa, but it cannot be a sports title. Okay, so caveat off. When were you include mass effect as Annie a game Masters in published by Mass Effect 3. Excuse me. I'll go with Mass Effect 3. Yeah, it's just cuz the only time you have to worry about those semantics if you get called out, okay fair enough, but it's my only thing is if it's published by EA and it's not a sports title. Okay, I'll go manually like three is my first gut. Jedi Fallen order.
How To Get New Commodore 64 Games
"The Commodore Sixty four as a classic home computer and quite frankly a great gaming system and believe it or not. Games are still being made to this day for the system. Many are free. Some you'd have to pay for I mean after all, it does take work to write the programs even with the limited graphics and sound that don't told up to today's games but even with the limited graphics and sound, there are great eight bit games checkout etch dot co at do a search on that site for Commodore, you'll find Commodore Sixty, four games in even a vic twenty game or two here him there granted there aren't a whole lot of games listed there but notice about near the. Top that says Commodore Sixty, four click that now we are much larger selection of games and I'm sure there's other ways to get to this to this is just the way I did it now be short to look at the description of each game since not all games listed are actually commodore sixty, four games. Some are modern eight bit style games. Some are even just soundtracks of games. Sidetrack software is one of the big modern publishers of Commodore. Sixty. Four. Games. You'll also find great ports in clones of Arcade Games that either didn't exist for the commodore sixty four back in the eighties or had horrible ports back then and developers took time today to make much better ports and clones. Galaxia, for example, as one of the best clones of Gallagher for the Commodore Sixty four, there was a port of Gallagher in the eighties for the system, but it was quite subpar and didn't meet people's expectations for the game but you could get Galicia and have a very good gallagher like experience on your commodore sixty four through dot ISO. Now, if you have a commodore sixty four, you're going to want to buy a device called the SSD to IC- to deal with the disk images. You could buy this at the future was eight Dot Com and put your desk images on an SSD card. For Cartridge Images, you'll want the easy flash cartridge which you can load crt files onto. You could buy that at Gopher Retro Dot Com that's go the number four retro dot com or if you have the money, you could do both with the ultimate to plus cartridge ads alternate sixty four dot com. I know the SD to is see should come with instructions out set up your software, but I have no experience with other options myself. Of course, if you don't have a commodore sixty four I just want to make things easy. You could always use device emulation software and many of the downloads from each ISO for Commodore Sixty four come with vice or some are emulator already. So you don't even have to worry about downloading it.
How To Run A Bowling Alley-Arcade-Restaurant-Bar In The Middle Of A Pandemic
"Would be even harder than just running a restaurant. Come on. Running a restaurant there was also an arcade was also a bullet. Right. There you can't the business involved a bunch of people touching stuff. Really. Yeah, and sharing shoes, right har you disappeared shoes, right so many questions. Well, the good news is today we have guests. Could. Speak exactly that because among other things he has co founded a bowling alley. Bar. And Love, I have so many questions about the bowling alley of model before or even before I should say the corona virus hit. So I'm looking forward to this one. Where could I just say one more thing crazy or we bring guests not gone con- do you know that I want bolted to sixty three? Strike. As effect. Pick Sur- it didn't happen not so nice. Say it a high school I otherwise I would have had fucking. Anyway a likely story trust. Numerous introduction today I'm very excited someone who he should have had it on a long time ago long even before virus finally getting on. Adamos AMAC. So as mention he's the CO founder of decades is a bowling alley arcade bar in restaurant in Lancaster Pennsylvania in is an economist. is the chief economist at work, which is an online freelancing platform. So kind of the perfect guest to talk about the macro of what a seeing the economy, but also in the micro of actually run or try to run a business. extraordinary. Time. Adam Ozanich. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having US I. Guess you don't have to worry about disinfecting the shoes right now because I assume no one's volume. Bowling or they are willing they are bowling there socially distance bowling. What's that? So we have six lanes at decades, and this means that you can bowl on every other lane and we always have a fairly small maximum group size anyway. So that's really concerning. Do you disinfect the bullying Balser. What happens are people like spraying antibacterial spray into the holes every time they come out yet we have disinfectant. We always disinfectant shoes in one of the things that. Might surprise people about how we're a little bit advantage coming into this is disinfecting was like a big part of what we did before. the PIN number saw we've always disinfected our shoes after every single us and we've actually had a throughout the business we have. Stations of hand sanitizer. They've always been there. We've got I love the five of them. Arcade. But we're pretty clean place. If you're just picturing like a regular bowling alley arcade, that's not a good imaging mind to hold what decades is like we're fairly upscale place. It's a commonplace where you'd be comfortable getting a cocktail and we've got chandeliers hanging out. Nice. Leather couches. It's like a nice. It's a nice place. You're totally comfortable buying a good cocktail. They're so like we work hard to keep it clean and make feel clean we always have. So disinfecting that we've been part of what we do the only thing sort of extra We now we disinfect the Arcade Games all day long and we disinfect bowling ball's all day long. So, took us a little bit about like, okay. What is business like pre-crisis accompanying business like yours bullying are your? What is the sort of business model love Blake in normal times in terms of where you make money or the profit opportunities are I assume some aspects are more loss leader than others like Linda just normal day to day the business of running back. Sure. So it's really four businesses that overlap the restaurant, the bar, the arcade in the bowling alley there's a lot of fixed cost operating all of them. So there's not really a profit margin overall area, but you get sort of operating margin it do you. Basically make money on all areas in the business. I'm they're just different different kinds of operating structures. So like in the restaurant is a high costumes sold business that means there's a lot of materials that go into each dollar you sell, but the front costs are smaller share. Bowling is like a massively fixed cost business. So like your ninety, five percent of the cost of boom is a fixed cost which was putting in lanes. On the marginal dollar bowling, you have really high margins and same thing is true for. The big cost of machines you have the cost of tokens you have maintenance repair costs, but those are relatively minor. Via Arcade is that a high margin business tone The good news about climb margin businesses is you can afford to do all sorts of like discounts on them to make them into laws leaders if you have nights of the week where you want to. You, know if you have like a lover capacity night of the week, you can do something like everybody who comes in Lottomatica gets two dollars for tokens. When you in the food business in the restaurant business if you want offer discounts, it's really get into. You know actually losing a loss leader with bowling arcade it's all opportunity cost. There's you know it's really hard to lose dollar someone balls it costs you like. Almost, nothing to let them all. In your cades. This is something I always wondered given that there's so many different businesses involved in something like a bowling alley that also serves food and drinks and has video games well but what's best deal for a customer? Would it be just going there to bowl and not buying food or drink or would it be going narrative buy food or drink because the cost of food and drink is subsidized by the bowling alley or? I know it changes all the time, but I'm just curious whether there's there's one thing that kind of stands out to you. So it's definitely, you can find specials throughout the week. If you WANNA bowl, it's cheaper to bowl off on like a night of the week doing a special order nor Keagan doing special. So Nat Sense. You're talking cost minimization coming outside of peak hours is going to be the best way to do it. It can be pretty busy on the weekends saw. Do you WanNa make sure you can play your game and unlike Saturday night you know you have to get there kind of early to get signed up all. It gets pretty busy because six lanes. So from a cost minimization perspective queuing perspective the slower days of the week you better odds. But in the put on my economist hat, the real value is not determined by the cost the inputs the value is how much get out of it so in my mind. Whole SORTA experience. It's great full. Complete evening. So I like the total package she come in you blend games you bowl an entire evening is a lot of stuff you can do with your friends. So it's sort of irrelevant to the consumer what what the relative costs you're looking at what your consumer surplus from and it's true. You can save money by bowling on a Tuesday night, for example, but. Your friends might not be able to go out on a Tuesday night. All sort of gather at specific times. You mentioned the ability to give out token maybe two dollars worth of tokens if you WANNA to come in on a night that typically less busy have turning. into a loss leader to grow food sales. But I'm curious about the token aspect US specifically in part because there is this nationwide. Shortage so that mean you guys don't have to worry about the coin right I of bunny token. That's right. We don't have to worry about the coin shortage right now. But that's because of lessons learned about coin shortages and we we get our own coins minted. They say decades on them never nice little. Picture on them of our logo you, designed to coin up my heart. Sinden, he's the one of my partners is that he's an artist and designer marketing guide and he he designed the coin. It looks great. We did have a coin shortage early on. So we ordered what we thought you know speaking. The token people are used to dealing with arcades. And we have also are the person we are teams from WHO has a lot of our experience and we talked to both of them we got this is how many coins you should have for an arcade of your size, but demand was so strong at first the velocity of spending we couldn't keep up with it. We didn't have nearly enough tokens and it took US actually like months to get caught up to the amount of tokens that we should have. Because it takes a while to them. There's a backlog also, you're sort of in denial about how much you Tokens. Because, you think about is like well, we're GONNA spend this little bit of front nettle. Be It for Tokens but people walk away with Tokens. Fine. 'cause you think you're going to bring them back eventually even if they don't, it cost less than a token mitt less than a quarter to make token. So like someone buys one hundred dollars tokens and frozen in the trash, we make money on that. We don't make as many as if they gave back to us, but we still make money. Right? But when we first opened up, we had just this massive coin shortage 'em. What required was constant constant emptying of the Arcade Games. If you have here token level set crackly, you shouldn't have to Vr your your games throughout the night it maybe once. Or twice on like a Saturday she really busy. But they're big. They have big containers on them. They're meant to be held up with the days where you said you should have to empty them. but we opened Keith the supply of coins moving. We had to be constantly engaging, and this was actually I was doing this a lot. I don't actually work there on a partner, but I don't think take salary I don't have a job there. But I was for our. I like opening week weekends. I was there like our busiest times wearing the decade shirt like a staff member going around the emptying the ski ball machines who machines just emptying the tokens and keeping them moving basically long so that that's the cost of a coin shortage says you have to. Interject yourself into the the arcade economy and keep them moving.
Celebrating Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 10 Years Later With Edgar Wright
"Big Picture on our Van Thin Jason. Concepcion to Scott Pilgrim super fans. Thank you for being here. Guys. I wanted you both found because I. Know that your fans and being a fan is is complicated. These days is a ten year old movie. I WANNA go back to the moment ten years ago for both you. Maybe you could tell me a little bit about when you first saw this movie and what your initial reaction to it was. I was shamed into it. Yeah it was shame, so happens ally of the best things in life have come directly from Shane and so I missed it in. It's the actual run didn't see it and talking to a friend of mine and a friend of mine goes. WHO's talking to me about this? Great show that he had heard that was coming to HBO. And the show is called game of thrones, and it was coming to hbo the little while he was telling me about holidays, books and stuff like that, and then he says to me he goes, but I have a feeling. You just a surface nerd anyway. And I know I am the nerdiness of the nerdy. He goes well. Did you see Scott Pilgrim vs the world in theaters, and I no surface Nerd, so then he tells me after. See the movie I watch it and right away. I was blown away. And I had the DVD I would have the DVD and I just like Lucht DVD over and over and over and over and over again to the point to where my girlfriend was just beside herself in hating the movie. She hates worse than anything else. Woman What was it that clicked? Why? Why did you respond to it right away? First of all the character of Scott, just how he is both the hero, and in many ways the villain of the movie at the same time. You know what I mean. He is the guy that you're rooting for, but he is completely like personally. He's a jar. And like I was going through a period in my life without sort of me and I I relate related to in one part of the world. Be having this intense longing, and then in another part of the world, actually sitting on all the people who are actually there for you and plus just the way that it was directed the use of the characterization, how everyone was a little tool to make this sublime sort of arcade game comic book world. I'd never seen anything like it onscreen still having to this day.

And he can a every time I say. Hey we're going to this place. I'm like what's the parking situation because business close on Mike? What was the politician? That's why except for the one that was called cheap cigarettes and was too cheap. Wow there was raised out of business too. Cheap prices are higher somewhere else. Anyone else I've into bark at one time. It was on a day at the time of this recording as at the time of this recording It was it was on a date. Ooh And I it was sound like a fun place. You can tell them right here. There's a retro barricade in Pasadena that I want to check. It was a different one. This is my first honest right. Hold on all going. All you know vowed at the docking says you Tom No it was like I was more focused on the day nervous and shit like that. So it's like we were at the arcade and we played a few games and I was able to loosen up a little bit from that. But that was it wasn't like I wasn't able to fully unleash arcade. So what on question for the single people? What is the arcade game? You play on the date to see the compatibility like to percents shooter shooter. See if they got your back. The shooter is dead and decides nothing. Wow I it's just bitter and we don't get to play or that no one wants. I don't think the problem is that someone does very much. So all it's popping into my mind is carnival. Okay Crony Walker. Yeah because also I fucking hate clowns and zombies. So it's like the worst possible scenario so it's like if I panic. What will you do all? He would have been if you if you weren't worried about the situation The game till like like. Let's say I just happened to spot it. And it's that game and I'm like this is perfect to determine like art compatibility I would probably go with Pacman. I WANNA get with a shooter game but I also I also want to have conversations. I feel like I would pick something that I loved from a from like much like if they had like a Nintendo game or if they had Hydro Thunder Alabama paid the game. You really lights. Yeah but but most of the time I mean unless I'm wrong I've been to one They tend to seem seem to only have like the stand up arcade the standard cabinets more often than Astana button cabinets. More than like sit down. Sit Down and so far my experience arcades. They haven't really had those big cabinets. Yeah can't afford a baby can afford the real shit. Yeah so I would say I say maybe start with something simple like something from Atari and then maybe move on to some you know like a simpsons type thing combat. Yeah Simpson's type game. I think it would be fun and Mike. Yeah even though you never watched the show anymore. I know the character of the show of the game. Yeah even though your parent your mom never let you watch it. Burn kid hit and run your play that I did play that not a whole lot. I played on game. Who Good What was it on? Gamecube is that was on. I think it was on all that all those Gen consoles xbox with the same time. Yeah what was it? I think I think that's where like because I wasn't super into Simpson's as where it didn't but wasn't that crazy taxi. I was towards crazy taxi and to me I was like well. I can play where the taxi hit and run. I believe there's value out of the car and we can get into car. You just switch people even new cars. You can repair the car. So there's Tom Sounded asks you guys but For me you included in this group that you created yeah It'd probably be air hockey hockey is like do you have a competitive edge? Compared to edge you have hand eye coordination. If you don't then we could talk about if you do then whatever but then like there there you can talk. There's something physical happening. It's key in. I think the key I think if you can get something competitively that that is good and I do this on the show and make it make it a laughing bit for myself. Were I do a lot of unnecessary? Sexual moans oh. I think it's funny to hear that what I'm seeing sports being played in that happens like it's just like what the fuck are you getting shot? You're doing that like having the playfulness where you can get those kind of energies flowing. Where it's like cool. I'm I'm down with that. You asked about pinball. Okay no I only because he was on a days bring that game that I like is he left and right pedal take turns okay. Let's this have you ever tried that like right now would you? Would you know you probably go crazy right? I would no. I don't know if I go crazy but I'd feel I wouldn't drive the other person crazy either pinball's like such a like I feel. You even have a ghost moment with that you can have like a Patrick swayze Demi Moore ally Clinton I about that if it got to that level. Though you don't know me at ain't it ain't my I would just because it's the same thing about it. What's their hand eye? Coordination like what you know and it also like pinball you could see what what's their Mo what do they want to go for the most they tried to get it through the fund. Kenniston the lights up or Gopher score. Do they like it at all? Yeah okay so I'm shocked wash. It's hard for me to even imagine. It doesn't because Bonnie doesn't want her does play video games so it's hard for me to even put it in the place but it'd be fun to do like a racing game. Yeah because he. I mean honestly I think probably would be. Maybe coke are actual curry saying. Oh that would be so much fun. Oh my God yeah she would do this. I get way too competitive with the president's daughter back with her. Yeah I'll have a competitive person so that's my wife's not truth which I'd probably chose pinball. She's not competitive at all. I was GONNA sick. Us A final question that I have for the room being. I don't deputy if you were now. We mentioned you know making our nerd on office. That's going to happen some day and we're going to have we're going to outfit with five cabinets right so we always choose one. We each get to choose a single cabinet to outfitter office. With what cabinet. I mean I feel like I already answered that it would either be the out of the ADDAMS FAMILY. Lord of the Rings Pinball or Lords. Either one of those. I feel like okay. Pick while say Lord of the Rings 'cause Addams family. Is the Mike Expensive most? What's the most popular ones? You'RE GONNA eat the most places people come over the Hitler rings. I haven't seen this summer so you don't believe one of the things in it is the tower with the. I two which is pretty cool. That's amazing yes because it is based on some movies break it open. Take all the means to make a little Lord of the Rings Pinball all right Ceylan just had it machine relevant Revolution Nice. Very DDR. Isn't that. Sanford volusia yeah. So there's DDR Revolution Revolution Revolution Revolution. Ddr can they put a little too? Nope RASA quantify. Do you have a favorite song? Do you remember? What was the insanity? One Tokyo something we call revolution. I just know dancing. I Mr Butterfly Green Black Alloy. My God that was the fucking one that played all the Goddamn time all right. Ddr DDR DDR machine for me. Oh I get like a two player. Crews and world full cabinet so like to to Miss Co workers because hop on it and like it'd be free to play of course of course coffee break just like ooh let's go do a race mine. I would say mine would have to be a dresser. Okay like I feel like we like I've never been Jurassic Park and I feel like I need to. Yeah Yeah and I could always talk about it as like my favorite. And what I declare to be the best arcade game ever. Wow I was one hundred percent ron this entire time. It's not DDR revolution it's Dr Extreme. Okay so is the green one I that was the one actually least like midnight special Okay all right I like to I think for me I would you know honestly like if I were to have something for myself. It would probably be Iraqi but the thing is you have to have someone playing with you So I would probably just do. Maximum tune three. Because it's chill and you just listen to a bunch of fucking jay-paul and so it's it's pretty much where it is like. Here's a music video game driving. I'm GonNa Change my answer. Yeah I WANNA say X. Men because it's something we could all play at once Walkman because it's up to six players get will in here and shout for Marvel Recap guests to come play. Do you have to play with other people? Can you play so you can play chess? Yeah that's the one thing that I wanNA play multi but it's like if I had to play by myself it's going to be that one. Yeah Yeah I'd fuck moreover his capcom baby that special shot up where we just go with the Halo Fire Team Raven. Oh yeah go all right guys. Yeah it's been awesome I'm completely. What are your favorite cabinets? You forgot you hate now. I just wanted to sleep at a slide in the. Em's all day. The way that you slide that coin in that slot to an arcade now but not in the way that Tom that way. Does Tom.

"An all new adventure specifically made for this cabinet. And you're on this. You have a like a mini gun type of thing and you pick up certain guns shotguns. You have the and then you hop into like a wart hog and you're just a new aspiration and it is so much. That sounds incredible. How Yeah Halo fired him. It's incredible looks like a fucking time machine on earth. It's a four player cooperative halo game. You're all China's get what on Earth cabinet is like a mini halo ring. Yeah yeah well everyone at home look it up. Look at Halo Fire Team Raven Cabinet Arcade. It looks like yeah. It looks like a time machine. So that is now my one that because this Krono pinball there I haven't I haven't gone to an arcane time so at the epicenter of this is where all my money goes now. Awhile is there. Nate shots nate and tasty money. We spent like at least forty bucks on. Well we gotta go get a place to beat it. I was GONNA say so with barricades but kind of going back. What is the most anyone spent on Arcade So the first time I went to the epicenter was my birthday a couple years back and I dropped. I think two hundred bucks on one game show. Oh I don't I don't really I haven't answered times like you're at some point I don't know for me. It absolutely is. I want to say it was taken three. Okay oh I know. 'cause Tekken two was a game that I played for the first time in my buddy's house in was the oldest. I didn't have a shot at the Josh it was it was middle school. I didn't have a playstation. I wanted a playstation four taken to that was that was how I got a place so you WANNA taking three was coming out like Tekken tag tournament. I was in the Arcade tag tournament. Four because you know they came out in our case before so that was like that's where all my money was taken through. I was like and I got. I got really good estimate how much money you spend on my gosh. How much money did you give Conan in one sitting for just over time? I mean we can do whatever you can answer. I would say probably at least a hundred bucks in one sitting or overtime over time. Oca- yeah but this is only like a C- a few because the window of of it being out but you know I remember instances of like the parents going. Here's one hundred bucks or like that. Like I can't remember it. I can tell you so the US dropping. It wasn't forty on the halo one like twenty dollars. Thirty dollars now is not equivalent to when you're a kid and you're given a certain amount right a little bit less. Then I was given fifty dollars. Nate Ni- at Scandia there was got legacies. Dark legacy was with the cancel version that came from but God legacy was a arcade game and it was only I think it was only two people could play and we dropped thirty dollars a pop on it to beat it down saying it was only seventy five fifty seventy five cent play so you can. You can't putting it in so we we we beat it. We got to the end names in there. But that's I think that's the only time there could have been other one. I remember because we were like running out of money. Yeah Caitlyn do you have a high high number other than the machines do you Tom? Yeah Seventy Bucks. One City ever spent more than twenty and this was not. This isn't before it was working. Yes saved up money thirty bucks. Eleven seventy dollars. I think was all on a maximum tune was like I was trying to get into grade. My I went to several circuits. Whether it's just like this is hard. This is no matter. How many upgrades you're putting your car like because you can only do this. You can't buy your way into it. You just have to keep playing everytime you WanNa race where he's ready to win. No so like you'd win and they give you points and that allows you to upgrade your car. We had to make the right upgrades for the right car. You did or else you be fucking at this endgame point where you have this dope card. That can't win any race because everything's just out maneuvers you and though it's like it's like a true testimony like there wasn't a game that. I put a lot of money and actually it was at the Luxor. My my need the nomination help with this one but remember the name of it but it was a game with a mounted assault rifle guy And that one I. I went to year after year. When would go back to it until I beat it and that one? I sunk a lot of money into. I've was the Luxor. Sorry Mike right around the I max. That's in there one of the other games in there is a VP game. So if anybody else knows what I'm talking about it's amounted assault rifle alien versus Predator. Well that was also in there but it wasn't it wasn't ADP that's correct. He was like all right. You don't take the scoping look through it possible. I remember playing a game. Yeah and I love that game because of the gun play and I would go back to. You have to hear because we would stay at the Luxor lot so it was like go downstairs. Play that game G An actual assault rifle. I WanNa say I WANNA see was like two handed. Interesting it might. It might have been some look it up and all So so back to Josh's sorry with the arcades and stuff like that what does what does Evans experience has been a lot. Many hadn't hadn't experienced it until I mean. Of course. So Dave and buster's has been around for a while and I would say it's not I wouldn't call it a barricade. It's just it's to me. It's a family fun center that happens to serve alcohol. Yeah Yeah But arcade experiences it's going to pub- with a lot of cabinets inside of it I guess the epicenter would be a family one as well. They serve a lot of alcohol alive they do. They serve mixed drinks okay. Oh it's not just beer. Had the exact same. Oh can imagine yeah. Spend a lot of pocket money. I hadn't experience. I mean my first time experiencing like a barricade was actually. I think it was last year. Wow I went to visit my best friend. Yeah I visited my friends. Josh and Timmy. And we went to a barklay down there and it was really good. Beer Sanyo has some really good breweries and yeah it was. It was a dope place. It was fun. They say it gets colder. You're bundled up now I for me. Arcades is like the moment I can start drinking I went out I've I've ever And so like bar cades was really cool idea. When like I remember I think It was like an old friend I think her name's Danny I think she's the one that like introduced me to one up here in L. A. and It was cool if anyone's ever there. Danny Yeah Yeah Danny and It was cool and it's like show today Brown Ski Birthday. Yeah I was GonNa say we actually went there recently? like Corey. I on there like last year. Caitlyn we went there. This was when I came back monk where we first show I came to. I went to one up. Oh Yeah mikey's birthday. We go there if yes that mikey listeners. It's cool 'cause like it's it's public enough where it's like maybe this is a first date territory but then if the things are going well maybe. WanNa play some games together. They got good They do have some booze wall looking birdcage thing. That people want to sit in. If you don't scream pick but the one thing. I actually really liked this kind of bend the question a little bit on Freddie when I went to hang out with him when I when nerd on sent me to sound like Silicon Valley Comic Con Afterwards. We took We stopped and we got some food and then went. We just walked down and sounds a is one of those places to me. Like a hidden gem of places where like I grip as a child? But then as an adult. I'd have no cow as a chat and I have no idea what it is like as an adult. So he takes. He'll take me random places. Enin they have these bars where it's much more chill because to me. Asian people are just more chill about that shit or you can get really fucking drunk. Or he was house from Buckingham Not But then what you do. Is You rent out a booth and rented a booth and then they just hook up whatever you want? And so you're like I'll have a milk tea and bring an end six four and then you bring a SAG and wildlife which game show actually and so it's pretty cool sounds amazing. Yeah that's another type of arcade like an like Colorado. I I remember as a kid go into the Great Mall right before he got to the sounds so great. We go to the theater. There was a giant Internet cafe or Internet cafes every Asian mother fucker out there was playing fucking CS. All counterstrike. And I'm like this. Yeah I'll hang on just a regular one or two or something like to my goodness like in the thing is like I remember people playing that school and it was right next to the game. Stop so to me. And that's why I moved towards concert anymore because you can even fucking get seats it playing cs because all the fucking news is on it like you guys got killed at all right. I'M GONNA GO Games. Yes No Everybody knows in the mall. That the four gentlemen here used to work together. That is one of those places. An Internet Cafe Console. Place that has board gain. Yes and all that stuff which can stores that. Yeah it's a it's a crisis it's a it's upstairs in. It's kind of across the way from game. Stop Oh I just know that at the mall. Everyone's on the it'd be like user fucking installation I do want to say about Arcades The Fun thing about about them is the insane amount of like nostalgia. While you're drunk isn't very weird feeling. Yeah you as a business model. It's brilliant because I have been there where I have been like willing to just drop like I said two hundred dollars on a card dangerous thing now as adults you have the money. We can do that when I was like. You know what I want to go. Ask Mom and Dad. I have to tell were heads. I'm just going to spend another hundred dollars. Want those working on Amazon for ten bucks short. Earn faction of doing something like this is going to be a weird tangent about it but like I think that's kind of where the gold mine marketplace has been for. The last ten years is like the people who are now adults kind of had to grow really quickly because technology grew so fast and also information was being delivered so much more accessibly and so like people our age had to like. We're like technically we start. Having to be adults by the time we were fifteen because we had to know who are GonNa vote for by the time we were eighteen and so those of things were like Kinda crazy. Where before? I was going to just do your job Blah. And then when he likes to come for you like he looks hoops going. Tv and so now. Things are very different. So I I I almost find it. So predatory where it's like you are saying you're kind of asking us to go on a date with the childhood that we could have had because we didn't we weren't allowed to have it by the time that technology had been because now like everyone had to do multiple things in order to just up. And so it's it's a fun place to play in. But then I'll just like this fucking. Like dragon drags sometimes because he's like like. I like doing that drunken thing because I do have a lot of memories like drunken playing like Mario. Kart some of that. It's kind of like to me giving myself a second chance to go on a date with a girl from high school that I never had a chance with. But it's like I think I would never wanna find going to deal with their fucking shoes ship person or you know. Hopefully she's happy but lake but like that's the same whiplash. I'm getting those. You're getting a chance to time travel a little bit. I mean I last again. Last year I experienced that Barcode I was with my two best friends growing up. I mean from Cub Scouts on new. These guys we were brothers and it was so interesting being leaves being adults. You're drinking and then behind you as the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles Cabinet yet and we're dropping dropping quarters and then we're going down to the wish list. I don't remember I was wrong stunt festered. Oh he plays an eight probably does but I. It's because you're you're sitting there. You're in your thirties. You're talking about things you're playing these things from your childhood talking about. It sells the target about childhood and going Holy. Shit like it's it isn't interesting hobby so I mean I think that's how these barricades tend to start is like the it's always people like from the generation that loved arcades and then with the rise of home consoles it just like arcade sorta die slowly and then and then come back. They're all gathering dust and then finally the business. I've wanted to start with a couple of people since I was. We came up with us when we were fifteen My Buddies Dachshund Jesse from Broadway gone kids. We used to musicals together. We called the cafe basically the front of the cafe for the. Yeah Yeah I heard it for a second to anyone. Wants the cafe. Yeah and for some stupid essentially because I like cooking and baking front part is a coffee shop with pastries and of course like data but you can also sit down on anything. You'd like and play an xbox hooked up here. We have a playstation hooked up here. We haven't Nintendo hooked up here if you want to go in the back. No food allowed comics. Yu-gi-oh Magic we hold tournaments. We have this Shaka..

"This month. The first I went up to celebrate tasted even his birthday and him and nate and I played that and I think I got like four hundred token just wild that gets you like a fucking miniature mini MAG. No no plastic sticky guys drops down the guys talk about you but I got a giant foot tall before heads for how much of warheads. So that's only. That's at least fifteen hundred salivating thinking about the lemon warhead and a foot tall youtube because that just like the nostalgia just gave it to Dustin for his birthday. Oh well because it's fitting that sucks I gotTA GO. Baxter's I got shot glasses and cups thousand because I did this thing where you like. Pull the big wheel and it's an eye. I landed on the. Let's make a deal thing. Is that what it is or you know It prices right the price that one dollar one. Yeah It's dazzled by the way I never played. It didn't known as either night crawler class. No one did or nor cared set. The developers and people who did there were six of us. Someone played as her. So yeah that was like the back Lyndale. Luigino that you've been like somebody's favorite 'cause like why not. At rogier getting I would usually play in arcades was I mean. My Dad was way into pool. Tables usually a pool table was in the vicinity of arcades and like feel Pool Table One point. I was super good not so much anymore in College. I was like decent affiliate pool. Tables was kind of like the game. Like when like all right? I WANNA go play games. That require more skill and not so much money yeah and then like it was like. I'm trying to be an adult because this is all too But then all of a sudden I realize there's geometry this year I had a C. In geometry my dad is euless at pull. He has one in his house like he when he when he got his new house. He was like I need to have a room. That has my pool table in it. And he's and he would teach me about lines and all that kind of stuff and it's it's incredible pool table for me. It's fun to like say with some friends. Have a beer on the side and I don't really care if I win. It's like I have to. Oh it's a suck shot whatever. This is fun. Yeah cool I have. I have two modes and I blast. Sit as hard as they can or a top very lightly. I want to if I can show show my privilege here. One of my favorite one of my favorite Christmas is we had a scavenger hunt in my house and my dad bought a pool table. My Mom and dad out so when I was like twelve on we had a pool. Table Out Niagara. Grandma had a pool table in her house. Like for some reason pool is important in my family. I guess we it's important. We went we even went to the stores and like looked through happened. I feel like pool is kind of like the working. Classes like golf. Yeah bars the bar. Game Country Club nightclub lanes. I should be I I I won't yeah totally discredit myself I can. I can look at a pool table and go. I can see the lines but I didn't follow through. I'll say my dad kicks my ass one hundred percent of the time so and then. I'll play someone who didn't grow up with pool and I go. Oh terrible right right okay. Cool feeling growing up. My assist seasons with pool. Was that like if you played pool you were you were like yeah like a bar and you're like a deadbeat or or you're very very wealthy and you have a pool table in your house and it's only the men you grew up in the music man got trouble my friends and it starts with P. and then stands for. That's the thing is that they're getting a pool table in there. And he's like Oh. It's the devil schools. Actually my favorite musical. Actually that kind of with peanut stands for pool. It's actually a really great way to go into the an another subject of this. Conversation is now what what is now is bar cades. Yep Arcane won the past couple of years I've been seeing an upswing of bark as can I kids grab arcades and we're like I don't WanNa let go very much I moved away food from Sacramento down to L. A. And motherfuckers out there be popping off when I fucking laugh because two years later like world coin op coin coin up I was like what the fuck I never fucking one point epicenter now. I was so fucking upset because like now all of these places are popping like dope. Look like we have one here in. La At least in north. Hollywood day like I've gone to what's called the one up. It's cool it's nice. It's like tiny it's got it's got doesn't have true cabinets as roms of cabinet. Oh and so you like. You're not truly playing it and then sometimes there's like software issues and you're like But then like other like coin op. Apparently I've never been because my fucking friends. I didn't take me but they're like. Oh Yeah has real games. I was like I think we should do of log road trip to epicenter in Santa Rosa. 'cause that was built like two years after. I moved and it's it's an old plane hangar that they turned into this giant. Like it's got restaurants. It's got a starbucks there. Ali Uh Cabinet. It's got a four D ride where you're you're in the seat and it's the screen but what they have. Is They have a four player cabinet for Halo. It's.
"arcade game" Discussed on Nerd On! The Podcast
"Bounce but not your the problem with that cabinet though is that one. It's very popular so is very hard to find because there was only one. It's like what genius. Didn't figure out to put like five of these things in an arcade right sometimes. It'd be a dollar if you're lucky. This is back when I was a kid but sometimes it'd be like two boxes races thirty. Yeah that would piss me off man. You had to play with an extra room afford it. You had to play with someone else will be. The second player would have to pony up on like the per person. I N Games are very expensive. Yeah yeah but I'll be. I'll be excited when I found a for for one dollar and I'm like yeah. Let's play this but it was still limited to compare it to the quarter right. Oh yeah the only real. I'll say button game. I would play either. The ones are. I played a lot of the ticket games. But if we're talking joystick and buttons there's only one game that was right for me and herbal versus and it was a six player experience. Why it's an awkward fucking thing. No it's a beautiful game. It's six players and it's X. men cyclops Wolverine Storm Colossus. Believe night crawler am. I can't remember who else if I if I could. Otherwise I was clauses. I don't ever ever seen that. Oh my God. Scandia shout out six player Arcade Cabinet. I believe so cabinet here. Let me see. Let me see massive. Everybody Look Arcadia. Who is it? It's it's cycling. Wolverine. It's warm and losses some woman. Some white go star star fires. Oh anyway it was a great game and it and it was me X. Men kid and the Wolverine had the orange suit the orange and yellow black. It's such a good game and it made way for a lot of the other. X Men Games ported to consoles later on but like that was just like birthday parties. Like I would invite who. It's a wide other wife. It's beautiful you can find it somewhere like play. Get five friends together and play through it with Whatever you tell me I look at the game I spent the most money on those between a lot. Actually because I I would go. Play a lot to get tokens and get something prizes and stuff but like I think physical game I spent so much money. God Blessed Air Hockey. I fucking loved air hockey the the competitiveness. Okay loser get out and then you know. Fight the shit and that's how it was between our friends was like who's the best and it's a cool. He won once that person's beating everybody. Then we move on to another game but then I think the like actual like non-prize winning token thing game. I spent a lot of money on either. Ddr to get better at it And then I did the racing games but I'll stuck between two and the two that I played a lot on was initial D and then initial d three and then maximum tune three And these were games that you had to get a card. So He'd spend like a dollar fifty just to get a card and I was like a fucking lot of money verifying. Yeah but the thing. Is that your card would get it printed out at six games your car your car get print out at the end of your session and then it'd be the card of like your character and then the car pro and they don't say like this. Is Your Car. This is your name. This is what you've done drivers. Every time you insert it printed. Romney won so update and so it was the most epic Shit. I could probably find it on this. These are pretty always. My guy was named Kenji fucking idea. Why things because Fort Minor But like I always had a fucking of fair lady on these three sixty and so because it was sexy Mitsubishi Yvo So like those were those kind of games. I like a lot of time into but like the one game that gave me so many tokens that I think I you know you have to really look at like tickets at Hogan's tickets to to You have to really look like which ones cost the most and which ones get to the most And the one that I found that gave me the most tickets for the least amount of money in the least amount effort was not the swirly thing joining it was skibo. Ask You evil is like you've got one thirty or one one hundred. You get at least fifteen tokens our goal. My my game for that. Like getting the most tickets for some reason. Arcade wide this game. It's the stupidest thing. So you put the token down. And then you find where it's the thickest and you just use it against easy and I would get so many jackets no matter what arcade I went. It's kind of them. I haven't seen the night when you're about attorney nearly call. I gotta get something out here. F- brings so many coins easily.

"I let me go now. This shoutouts child life for cruising world. That's her only okay so I I was looking at everything. I was doing research for this to just remind myself and go down memory lane and to take realize that. I spent a lot of time on things like crews and USA. Yep and like the ones that you sit in and gas. We're just like I mean manual. Suppose go do a little bit of both spicier feeling Emmanuel man in real life right on Josh. He's always like oh you're such A. You're good driver racing games like I. Some of the racing games nowadays like for consul that is so intense but I love racing games. Not For some reason Mario Kart. It's a different story. Racing Racing Game like cruising or like Ridge racer was a con with a console thing but crews in USA cruise world the the the cabinets that you sat in my one Hydro thunder hide all the fucking Jesse. Who's Kaelin's blowing up? I was never good at this game. Because you're a bad driver. She has no depth perception immediately. Put the guests to the floor the whole time so you always spin out at the beginning. The hot girls like her flag like I could only get like so far immediately crash because I can't take turn but like at the time of going as fast as I can back down to one. I wanted to ask you a quarter mile at a time. So we have. No friends is familiar. Skip Tokyo so Josh. So what were the your name? Some some titles so crews say to be perfectly cruising cruising series in USA. I think they even had like crews in Africa or wildlife or something next cruise in the universe. Yeah crews in the universe I mean the SP space levels but now I just remember. That's where I would spend my quarters. I think the most because it was so tactile you were in it but also the speakers right behind you. I was thinking about like okay. So you also got like teenage mutant. Ninja Turtles Cabinet the four player. Time House of House of dead like no time crisis. You know shit either. A you had the foot pedal reload or crouch or you had to shoot OSCO dude. There are some. There's someone has a video of tasty demonize shot out of US so into a game. We don't notice they're filming but we're in tandem coca got got and we're doing the exact same time reload and it's depressing a little bit because that's what we're good at I. I never had also really cool so for everyone not watching it and just listening. They're doing the reload off the screen. Yeah and I did the the hold the gun with my left hand and then had use my index finger to slam the trigger as fast as I can and so I'm pretty much using pistol as a machine gun my and I'm not going for. I'm doing everything as fast as I can. I play by myself doing that. And so that technique. Obviously you're going for accuracy. Mine was just the normal. Since you bring this up. I've got ask. Has Anybody done the dual pistol? Yeah player leave yourself again. Another terminator game where you have the two GS matted and there you can only like Turnham so yeah I'd put him to grab onto both gs and just go him. Have you right now? We've seen the spinoff of yeah exactly spinoff of time crisis crisis zone. No now houses. The helicopter played. It is to me much more enjoyable. Because you're just holding on a trigger just shooting row there's also another the reminds me of. There's a drastic park and shooting does suck and you can have one if not that used to be. It's still there Dan epicenter. Did you guys play the Jurassic Park in mentioned that the cabinet out the car? The car said there was addressing park game in a cabinet. Halen you'd be driving along shooting. I thought you were talking about time. Crisis Address you play the Dresser Park Game Anyway so Ali so there was no normally not there. Was this drastic parking all E. I'm just gonNA live with all my heart. So where do you spend some your coins so for me? It was A lot of times I remember specifically was the same exact chucky cheese and it was the same exact Simpson's cabinet no mind the family members and you could do dual technically. I don't know if I ever got that far or if I was going to get that far but it was the brawler brawler with someone else or you playing by yourself Sometimes my brother But I can't I think it was myself. I don't really remember socializing too much. But that stuff. Yeah Deepa therapy sessions stuff but aside from that Cruising world was huge. Anything that was really loud. Maybe had some forty elements to it and you could just sit behind in the bucket seat and all that stuff. That was epic to me. When I was a teenager you know so you know cruising world huge fan of that but the game that I kept going back to. I know I know this was in Vegas. I WanNa say it was in the Luxor. If not then it was like in the like I think it was actually was one of those arcades in the parts of the of the basement level of the of the Casino Would be hydro thunder and it was like four or five next to each other or whatever. It was racing is a racing game. It came out and then sixty four eventually but it was. Jetski right. Yeah motorcycle or Jetski your pillow okay. So in terms of difficulty it would definitely be motorcycle than than hydro water. Yeah Because there are so many more ramps getting those ramps. Kaci SPEED BOOST. And if you think the speakers you would never finish a race. That's how hard it was like other games like you're an eighth place who cares but it's like no you didn't even fucking Finnish lose early. Spent a whole dollar okay. No it wasn't a fancy like boat or something but basically that's what I look like. I'm show look thunder but you would stock a message. That was my fear game because remember like there was like an lax level. This could be motor at like MotoGP game but I remember an lx where it was like to move to La. It was like a post apocalyptic. La where you would like dry or or like you know surf by like the big lax. Sort of half dome thing. That's fair yeah. I thought that was pretty epic. That was a huge win for me but my favorite of all time I think has to be dressed park. That's just the one I put 'cause you might hit a billion times like your your land Wafa this. We'll talk about dressing regret but hurts. But it's one of those things where you're completely removed from the rest of the because you're in why have NATO Curtis Curt. I definitely played with micro. You're isolated and you're in a whole different experience and I was so the porn music coming on like music. Remember.

"And you spend the fucking. You're spinning around in this way. Like how the fuck you have a museum park here in a building housing so that that was that And now I think I've just Stephen Busters here and there. But that's one of my favorite videos online as well as I think. It's in the mall of America where they have like a zip line through the arcade and the guy he's like my brothers and asshole. He's acting like he's dead on like flailing around his body's like careening through an arcane. You mentioned Mini Golf which I'm familiar with it. I say because I've been in La. I hate it so Real quick because just a test of northern California Southern California What do you? What do you call this game or Rochambeau Rochambeau so Roche? Mci Rochambeau is a Northern California thing Rochambeau or rock paper scissors paper scissors rock rock paper scissors. What everyone here down here calls it but I was. I S someone I forget who it was asked me. What do you call this a Rochambeau? And they're like okay. 'cause that's what. I hear from northern California. That's what I grew up calling it but no one here knows that was just one of those weird like even within California. There's the regional having like Putt. Putt hardcore people. Who are like hell is not a word I think fuck you. Hella is how I remember. When Hillary born the early two thousands. I went to an acting school. That was like a California statewide and people were like man that's cool and everybody has southern California was like what the Hell is that. Your deeming hollow actually work on holidays. Bread has actually recalled hellacious which means a lot of six leash ously But the bully is country club lanes. There it is CC. L. Ours is not able. Rip A gun tour down. I way we had cosmic bowling which I like totally had all of my memories. Come back because they would be like Black Light. Bullying and tiny tiny tiny like arcade but SMASHMOUTH SUPERMAN. It reeks of smoke. I Belong Hicks. Still does cosmic bowling. Do they yeah? I wonder if the one just down the street from our studio. Yeah what about the One? In the big Lebowski that doesn't exist. Jim Jewel jewel bowling. I just know Pickwick does so so moving on. Let's Talk. About some of our favorite arcade games plying are which one took all your money pinball pinball pinball explaining so jolie shots made again story we are. We are pinball family. That was his jam. When you're done arcade his favorite was pinball. It's because there's a lot of lot of skill involves combined in getting the high score is like a real within the community is very prestigious thing. So are my fav- my favorite one was the addams family pinball or the Indiana Jones pinball. Those were my two that I would play if there was a Indiana Jones. Are Adam family or sorry also terminator those those three pinballs if they were in the arcade anywhere? That's where majority of my money was going back in your quarters and I'm into all the other games very much so but some about pinball is very reward. Maybe it's the add in me but it's very rewarding with all the lights the colors you have to do like six things at once But yeah that was that was. Yeah how Jim how blasphemous does sound that. I don't like those pinball machines did spend a Lotta time playing on the computer one on the Space Astra one which I found people found a recent thing was actually just a trial for like larger game with like four other pinballs. Do y'all weird yeah. I don't know if you know this. But if you upgrade the bumpers four times they become blue green and red. Now that's cool and so fucking essential in that is that is that thing. It's pinballs not for everybody. Iraq's Stu rock still do soccer rockoff when you're playing like the digital ones. No so it has to be a physical. It's about all to something about it right. Yeah like when you pull the trigger for the ball and you feel all the like little bumps and moves of the machine tilting. It doesn't hurt. You don't tilt well the weird thing to do. You're surrounded by video games right. Yeah and it's the one thing that like is kind of like a real life video game in the lights and the funny yeah. Yeah and it's like I my I come from a family of putting on my Dad's side. My Great Grandma was a burlesque dancer in the carnival. My GRANDPA grew up in the carnival. My Dad drove and the carnival running games and stuff like that. So like we are the carnival the because I can win some prizes state. Can You win? Yes my dad and I we have carney luck so with pinball and stuff like that. That's what we kind of attribute it to is. The same kind of thing sounds are very distinct to our it's almost like like reassuring or like comforting to here. Yeah tells you it's it's the same sound that's used for a lot of video games like city builders and stuff like that or or strategy. If you build an arcade in the game arcade sound are the pinball. Sound very to send. Did I tell you that I'm going to be the voice of a pinball machine no is this morning anymore yet but yeah? He's this digital thing cabinet. Then we gotta go play. I still to this day. We'll spend most of my money on one of the studios that I work at. has a pinball machine in the kitchen what. Oh that sounds dangerous Italy on my list of five things. If I ever came into a ton of money that I would buy I would buy myself one pinball machine we have a little say and I think I would do the addams family. One was my my personal. Like topless nerd on has our own building arcade. That's my favorite. Too Certain score plays the theme song and like it's a blast. Kaelin was the games that you play that coins. Claw machine claw machine. What kind is it the finger the three finger of the three finger? Andrew is always after cusak animals. Cue stuff tonight I. There was a time where I came home with six bags. Like the class closely. It made me because I was like. Oh no upsetting them so they actually. I was like there's no way that claw has damage grip strength. Did you grab all three of any any strategies any techniques that you were like this is what you go for how you do this? I mean yes but it's more of like if you if you don't have that like depth perception very much which is funny. Because I run into things and all that trip on time but like if you don't have that depth perception down really hard and you don't take the time to do it even though the timers going down then you're not going to get any tricks right. It's not always about necessarily straight on. It's not yet. How do I listen to shoulder? Whatever I used to know this guy. Shout out to Elmer Elmer. The coolest friend named Elmer laws. My God okay. So Elmer was so good at those claw machines. Yeah he'd be like he'd go up to a machine be what do you want? I want that he'd be like and it was just like a want and he could just no matter what he was just click. He goes to the machine it was like I never saw before in my life. Well I used to have friends like we would do it like tag team so it'd be like okay. I'm I'm running the claw but you go on the side and tell me where I need to go this way that way I would like I even though the timer is move and then go round be like yeah play all parts. Yeah big sure a knowing that was one thing that you really love like I fucking got it. Is there something that you felt super or something? You've never ever could get. Yeah would you walk away? I am I am was less like specific goal oriented. I was just like I wanted. I wanted to do it. I just want to do it. It was more buzz pokemon.

"About experience. Take Back Josh. Where are we going for the oldest? I you back. Forty s no way back in the forties. When we had the penny arcade we'd play ball in a kind of a string so in San Diego where I grew up in east county We had a parkway bowl and the best Mexican food money can buy in the US. India go yeah So in East County you had parkway bowl you had at the time was family fun center and then it turned into boomers But okay okay but boomers four heading. Mike. I mean. Essentially boomers was like it had a go-cart it had a. Putt piloted had bad at batting cages. But inside was arcane and are us and then of course way ball. It had the The Pool Alley part of it had the bowling alley and then had the arcade But that's usually I mean the family fun centers where we would spend most of our time. If we're getting the chance to was. It took an hour to get there so it was kind of a special kind of thing to go down and the trip the family fun centers like that and and I just remember playing like that was your spot. That was that was one of the spots is a good time and it wasn't easy. Didn't have to go to downtown San Diego or anything like that. It was a place that you go to a family and then there was more stuff to do like go karts and I always love batting cages. Yes Oh yeah. Some of those like Nice Mike places like everything. Yeah Wow. What was your Go-to game? We'll get further into that like. Yeah let's let's just start there. Yeah second oldest mine I think most of my Experience honestly comes from CECCHI CHEESE. If we're going like That's because I was trying to think of like well. Where have I played? Games and VEGAS IS A huge component. That but I think it started for me and chucky cheese is going there it was like an easy thing to do very colorful playful very low effort to try passed the pizza and all his birthday. Oh I've had several birthdays. We've all been a birthday party at some point Four birthdays at time of this recording of them. Not all of them at Chucky Cheese. Believe it or not. They didn't have either. They didn't have destiny gone but after that it was it was more like growing up. More teens We had a tradition for longtime of going to vegas every year or or slash. Tahoe was if it was like winter and it was. You Know Perfect. Time to go ski but vegas mostly you know you're there as a family. It's a little different you. Can't you know it's not party off the walls sort of thing? So it's it's a lot more tame when you're with the family right. Yeah so it's mostly about like seeing the sights walking through the Strip. Maybe happened some food watching the treasure. Pirates show experience. Las Vegas Young. Did they host Experience Vegas so differently. Experience I didn't are there arcades and so that's the thing so so at a certain point the the grownups casino right the grownups and WanNa go do their thing. You know we would have our would bring our consoles for the night because that's because like at night come on which it's but during the day you know sometimes go after gambling whatever then Shadow to my brother. And Sean and my Dad Sean Sean he would take us. Dot Com. My Dad would take us to this arcade in Vegas. Some of you might be wherever. I'm not sure it's called gameworks the Mecca of arcades it is it is like multiple stories and it's a credit card guy so you know that so you know it's good. Hi You know actually here. Yeah look I might have been there. Actually pretty incredible. It's it's still there. It's imagine I someone was like. I went to this Arcade Vegas Arcade like that is literally at so. We spent a lot of time there in those kind of that would always be the highlight of our vegas trip. The only reason we would even WanNa go surly kids casino as kids. Yeah the Kids Casino. Casinos you know. Hey Oh yeah. And it was the gym. Because of course Ross lay down his microphone on vacation with family. So things are a little bit looser. You know you got a little bit. You know renters were the coins. Saddle like Twenty Bucks a card worth twenty bucks a credit. You're like that in like the whole thing fills up and you're like oh no it's still going. I don't my pockets are now heavy with so many quarters like well this place. It was a card. So is this like my dad would give us like each twenty dollar like credit credit knows the most ever gotten like at an arcade. Games live orders. Here's a here's a couple of bucks. Go play some games for like twenty minutes. Whatever this was like this is a a yearly annual occasion. This is especially in Google Activity Amar trip and let's give us a more. So that was that was always a highlight of those trips. Well because I'm the next. You're the Middle Child. Also Fam- boy lot here. I site I also. was chuck E. Cheese for quite some time like I said I had my first birthday there. I had no choice in it but I'm glad it happened but then I graduated to a little place called Scandia and Song Goes Scandia all kinds of fun all wrapped into one. Because it was A. You've been singing forever. Laser tag go karts laser. Bumper cars have cage what everything and I put it was it was it was everything is just one location. Isn't one location. Its kinda fund all wrapped into one all from California correct. Yes so get into that in a minute. Awesome so this place can yet. This was the place where like I would go with my dad and my grandparents and shoutout to Jolie he would give us a hundred dollar bill to go to the arcade. Drop one hundred games. Because he was an arcade kid and he even owned in arcade before it was born. Wow so he was like new. I get it I get it. Yeah I would just. We would go with my buddy tasty money. Shout out and make sure we had this arcade and spend the entire day there Do some you know mini golf. One point maybe some laser tag accuser. If we're feeling a down the road spicy. But but the arcade was the place the same thing we would do the one hundred dollars and we would just fill our pockets with hoarders run around with our like belts tightness that our pants down in. Alabama trying to every game we could at this place so scandia was the way to go and then eventually I have now graduated to. This place called the epicenter in Santa Rosa. Which is Mark Aid It's it's an arcade bowling alley restaurants. It's an adult or it's called. The epicenter has everything. You play naked. Yeah exactly but there have the are there which since my eye surgery I can do for the first time in my life last I. It's it's a great I've been missing out. I'm so matty can do it for so long but it was. It was wonderful so we'll get into that but scanty is my my Mecca Nice. Yeah well next. Second youngest oldest. Yes what you got. All those words coming out of California. How did this none of it? Well no electronics. So I went to chucky cheeses. I think around my grandma's house because I was the man in Indiana. There wasn't a lot of stuff. There's just wasn't If you if you went to like a pup place or like an Arcade. They were berry separate. That is the whole business or you go to work. And the only type of arcade that we had in our very small town in the middle of farmland central Was Mister Gatti's Mister Gatti's turn daddy no Mister Gatti's GATT shut? I love that place. Basically you walk in and it's like pizza buffet. Buffet that restart unlimited soft drinks. Get all loaded up sugared up and your parents hanging out in the front and then you go through this little hallway that has all these like claw machines and stuff that line line the halls and then you go in. And it's a full like arcade so hungry there's like a you know like how. Mcdonalds like a place. Yeah imagine that times like fifty. And then there's that Mister Gatti's there's a ball pit there's an of course we have to call you towns and then he sounds like a bad online flash it it was basically like a four story football field of of what's Outside. Mcdonald. We lost a lot of friends. I WANNA talk video of that kid who jumps on the nets and he just disappears was definitely no children. Something zone is with those were called because I know it was a place. But that's a place but it was like a zone or something. I don't drop zone forever discovery zone but yes discovery off. Dinosaur was a mask anyway you go in. There's like this giant play place and then like on your rate is all these the like toys and everything of like what you accomplish. What can you accomplish by getting tickets? And then you have to figure which machines give you tickets because some of them were reared circus like attractions. You don't know why it's a game but you're also someone's mouth okay. We're GONNA talk about like the the ticket games are US appears to Josh. You'RE GONNA stand my I come from a family of Kearney's and they have what my dad and I call Carney luck. So we're GONNA get into that a little bit but anyway so gattis was like all the in the town that I lived in all that we really had like I only went to arcades if we're visiting my grandparents in Ohio or when I was in college high school and college and could drive thirty minutes to the next town over because there was a laser tag place that had like. Ddr Ten machines. So that was like kind of as far as you go so when I was hearing like bumper cars and watered bumper things in water number one ever go water. Go WATER WATER PUTZ GREECE CAR. Go Car Awhile. Water Polo Mini Golfing. But yeah that stuff is just like they were not all in the same place like it just didn't happen. Aided yeah you explain to me Scandia. Okay I'm ready for it. I'm down I want to play the game all right Tom so tom I yeah. I'm the youngest one here right in. Nineteen Ninety one. I feel like chucky cheese at that time had become already disgusting and gross old enough to play by the time. I was like six hours like I don't WanNa go there that smells and it's weird. Like I wanted to ever having their their mascots. Arete which is a pretty bold choice for the machines rory's sticky and both young so live from going there was fun especially like for the first time and going. I think first time I went to for Freddie and he was like my close friend. And my oldest. Yeah fun funny and Fancy Freddie. Yeah we and we strived but yeah so CIANCI was our first one and I think the only thing I really liked out of it was probably the fucking cheese pizza but then so pepperoni graduating from that. There was a mall in San Jose that we used to use called the Great Mall. And if I if you actually knew about it's an outlet mall so it's Shit Mall right But they actually installed van Skate. Park there and Because we would see cool dope escalators fucking skate and like every once in a while you get a salary skater but there had they had installation where it was an arcade so air hockey was like my shit for a long time then playing games there and that was like so. You're at the mall. The Mall Theater screaming. I live in California and then the mall outside so cool inside of the theatre had a Sushi restaurant to spend a whole day there because sounds like a great place. Mall is my favorite Great Mall. And then when I moved to Sacramento we also had a scandal but I never really liked it so it could have been one hundred percent Like we had all the same thing batting cages. Go karts tag attack Arcade and never called it. Putt PUTT. I've only heard P- since I moved to. Lsu Yeah Yeah Mini Golf Golf Mini Golf And that was more of like when you're in high school and you're going on a date with a girl you take her to scandal and so like all the teachers you takeover Skandia Nausea. And like you don't know should November business by the way And then we're GONNA go to the drive in. Yeah and so. But then. Most of the time I spent out spent hanging in arcades..

What we want to see from 2K Games’ new NFL game in 2021
"The NFL may finally be willing to open things up to some competition after more than fifteen years of exclusivity especially if by that point. Two K has demonstrated the same kind of talent for football that it applied in bringing its basketball series to the apex of Sports Gaming. Lot of words there. There is big news though. This is finally happening yeah. Nfl Yeah Yeah play with NFL BUT NFL. Player's stats normal. If you ever. I know a lot of football games when you do your SC- nfl logo and then the NFL Players Association. Yeah exactly but so. What does that actually mean? What do you think that this resulted because it jesuits like games? Yeah exactly yeah totally but cool but like I feel like that's not anything that's really going to move the needle like the people that are the miss. Nfl Touquet aren't going to be like well. This is this is what I'm looking for. Sure and I think even while doing wrong it's great reporting from cement and giving you context this moreover e as existing deals they expect to expire in twenty twenty one. Nfl Season Right. Yes it does I have. I don't see what future in two thousand twenty one early. Twenty twenty two right. We're looking at where the NFL's like alright. Yay You've done enough time to open this up and we're going to get out of this agreement like Madden makes money hand over fist right. Why would they want to rock that boat? Why would they want to do anything to that extent? It is interesting to see it all shake out of the last twenty years where we're now at a place where We've been at a place where. Ea hasn't football and to K has basketball clear in some ways forced the best entries in their respective sports. I feel like this is the type of thing that isn't going to result in anything worthwhile. Yeah eating is just going to end up with Arcade Games. They don't care about that. Which like a playground was cool. I played it for a bit but like it wasn't. Nba St John. It's just one of those things where it Kinda just feels like a a lesser than experience. And that sucks. I don't want that to be the case but in my experience it has been And people love those games. But I'm not one of them. Sure hands I feel like Arcadi. Sports Games is something I like. I don't care about what players are in it like it to me just more fun about like. Oh just make the game fun and sure having the teams and stuff is like nifty. I guess I duNno was interesting about it is. It's been fifteen years and so I think this is a story that gets us as old people going right. I remember what a big deal it was when he got the rights. I remember how good the two K. Games were and how much my friends loved him and how Bullish Two K. Was about it where they what they were selling. And I'm GonNa Kinda funny dot com slash around. Come get me. They were selling the last two K. Game they did for like what like thirty bucks to the Fifty Bucks that Madden was twenty bucks to the yeah. It was like they were making hardcore moves to make people come play their game over Matt and and that was awesome exciting and it was the challenge of you know when you get when you get into a monopoly. You get very set in your ways right. And so I I hate the matters. Just update every year you know Blah Blah Blah Blah. Like I know how hard the madden team works to make madden as good as it can be every year but they are in a nine month cycle and so it is a lot of features that they start working on get pushed to the next year Ravin beyond that one year whereas if you had competition you had two teams pushing each other. I think you could see something really cool happy. I don't see that happening out of this deal I I mean again. It's been fifteen years. The people made the two K. Football Games football games. I don't think you've been grinding. That accident. Still at two K for that long. Yeah they moved on to the project of the teams are. The things are a lot of them. Probably work on that and I bet in so to be here now having this conversation. Yeah you Katie things. But it's not like you're going to suddenly see this resurgence. I don't see what they can even if you go out and your two K. And you kill it out in these. Nfl Arcadi Games. I guess I understand. Okay cool like maybe you've proven yourself but in reality it's going to be the NFL's and to be like cool. Keep making these things like this. And I don't mean this in a derogatory way but these games are gonNA kill on switch. You know. It's like this could be to switch out like you know. They have been putting a lot of support towards the switch but the game like Wolfenstein supper. Never GonNA run as well as they do on the show. The playground games can capitalist pigs. Gummy ESPN NFL to cave. Espn NFL two K. Fives price was twenty bucks that year. Madden launched for four for fifty bucks there. You Go however I was insane man. Yeah Anikin J. MT. Has An interesting wrinkle to think about Tim. Jeremiah tricks exactly. Nfl IT'S UK is coming back but won't be assume focused game. This has me thinking both man and the ww two K Games have felt both felt same year. After you're not really innovating between games. Eighty w all the wrestling has been very open about wanting to make a game and with the relaunch. Xfl being funded by WBZ's. Vince McMahon. It won't be long assuming the XFL returns next season until an xfl game is made could and xfl and in E W game if they're good games that sell well force EA and to K to finally put finally up their game in making madden an WBZ games to prevent people from switching over to newer better products. No I mean here's the thing there's going to be an XFL game period. Yeah if there is an xfl game. It's not GonNa be good. It won't be soon for sure and yet and also won't be soon. I I mean there's a lot of jobs here if xfl makes it to a second season does it. I've paid no attention except what was happening. Yeah and you're not paying attention still going on right. Yeah Yeah So I I don't really see a game on the e W side. I'm really excited at the idea that they might do the thing. The Greg Miller dream right and just like let's just make no mercy is with us but I feel right now. It is legitimately all talk. That game doesn't exist yet and it just kind of like talking about it. And they're gonNA William do existence. I I do believe that. But that's going to be similar to the playground games and stuff where it's going to be a fun thing and the people that are in doing a really in love it and there's a chance that if it is really that good that audience can be fairly large and it could be kind of a big head and got very well review if you could. Yeah you could recapture some of the Gloria and sixty four wrestling games. I think you breakthrough. Nobody cared not nobody. But the people you breakthrough don't care that's eighty w these cool down for wrestling totally totally and I think that out of the twenty dollar download -actly exactly I feel like that. Could then you know? Open the doors and push towards. Wwe coming in being like all right. We're GONNA make mercy to yeah. That could be a fun thing. But I don't think that's GonNa Really Affect Mad at all it's own level. It's like did this question kind of implies that Madden isn't doing well in reviewing well it is you know. Madden and correct me. If I'm wrong isn't facing any of the issues that a ton of the other sports games are over the last couple years of the micro transaction stuff being as ridiculous as it seems to be fearful or even NBA team in Madden. There that I that FIFA has has so many problems with but I don't hear people here. I'm sure anything with the station platforms. A has the option to be abused period. That's any game. So yeah that's not inherently bad. It's just bad how could be in the game. But the core Gameboy of Madden Games. Great Right. Oh Yeah Yeah I don't know hasn't changed much in the last ten years but it has. That's the thing is it's glacial and it changes in the physics move and this thing that and so it's like I mean I think if you looked at ten years ago actually played it versus you played and now I think you would be like. Oh wait hold on. Maybe I guess I'd rather go back on. Madden two thousand ten because I was a good game
Arcade Cores on the MiSTer System
"People working on arcade cores for the Mr have been doing. Some gangbusters work phenomenal watch out. That sounds bad gets what are you doing. Are you following along. Like live or they. Are they tweeting out all this. Yes I'm looking at hub. An looking at as they as they do stuff for for sure because a lot of games run on pacman hardware. You know it was a popular game so there's a lot of like hey rip these chips out. Some of them are bootlegs. Legs like hey rip these ships out and put these chips and you can play a bootleg of this other game on pacman hardware and so instead of having to download separate things for each individual the game. They've been like hey. We're just gonNA adapt pacman hardware stuff to run multiple games. According to Wikipedia that hardware is actually called NAMCO PAC man. Yeah that's probably right in the name of that system that arcade platform. Yeah that's probably that's sounds about right. An eight bit Arcade Game System Board glaxy glaxy and also a ton and scramble rally x game was also widely modifiable. Show jump shot jump shot and shoot the bowl game the bullseye actual seriously are these stories. Is that you don't know exactly what was from your downloading files which are cores for this. PGA and you can also download the whole thing could pilot yourself. Which sometimes I do When I when I want to feeling frisky yeah exactly? When there's like someone just checked in something hot? Like Joe. The gameboy advance core has cheats. Now and I'm like that sounds fun Vaughn. I'm GonNa compile that myself right now sounds exciting. It is exciting. It's like modding Kinda like yeah. It's like watching them them. Do all this work that I've yeah I don't know bigger. Nudity MoD is come out for witcher three and I have to update to that. Well yeah that's exactly. I can play tapper or some Tory tapper root beer tapper tapper. Well there's a Simpson's tapper that's like a hack so someone could potentially do a nude hack for tapper. We could probably set that
Looking Back at N64's 'GoldenEye 007'
"GONNA talk about a little unknown gain. That came out for the end. Sixty four called go goldeneye double. Oh seven you look so excited. I'm I'm I'm excited. I think this is the first time where I've been able to talk about something that I was like. Have like very strong memories of Because like I remember like a cold wind dark winter morning and and I was I was probably like ten or so and I would be in the basement playing Goldeneye and and shooting shooting poorer Russian soldiers in the army and then they'd like wave their arms. You I got him wave there are. I'm I'm very strong. Golden Eye Memories and generally aren't mostly about multiple though I did multiplier It's mostly about the single player but I know we're alone. Must Lonely looney child boy. Did you guys play golden eye at all. Have you ever played only grow before your time. Honestly I have never ever in my life played it but I was in like a used game store. Go like two or three years ago and they had like sixty four games sure and I saw Goldeneye for ten bucks. So that's a bad and I bought it but I haven't in sixty four. Yeah Okay Cool. I still have never played it though but I owed it plant. I can't imagine I'm going and playing it now. If you didn't before I I love that game. I was obsessed for that game some games. Just don't hold up. That doesn't mean they're not important but holy cow playing shooter on Nintendo sixty four controller. We have to like with the CBN's and also the right trigger. It's it is a messy messy game. I don't want to Brag but I may have been defendant like I was. I'll just say I was the neighborhood. Champion of Goldeneye. How many people how many children were involved in? Probably about eight so like deal. Sure I'm and also like looking back on it kind of unfair because weight is not only no. I didn't do that. And I let people pay his job. But we only only played Complex shot with either remote minds approximity minds as you do and that really is a mode that once you learn how to exploit it it. Nobody has a chance of beating you. Yeah that's true you kind of get into a rhythm and and let's just say I was. I was really good really really early. We're in that rhythm. Chris Plante Rhythm Rhythm plan is what. We're getting a little ahead of ourselves though because I wanted to go back to the beginnings it's as we might know golden eye was developed by a company called rare rare is known for many many games conquers. Bad Firday today is one of them although the ear rated podcast that is certainly not an easy rated game but they also made donkey Kong country and that was their big big big success of the S era and so they decided okay. We've got this bond license secured the bond license we are going to you make a bond game and their initial idea for this bond game was to make it just like donkey Kong country. They wanted to make a AH side. scrolling Tutti James Bond game so you would like play as James Bond. Yeah but you'd roll around in even Pretty Pretty Authentic Komo essentially like that arcade game where you shoot aliens in the face. The side scrolling on. That doesn't really narrow it down but you are a spy and you start with the parachuting remember the anyway. We're supposed to be that. But but the Martin House who is the game director decided that he wanted to take advantage of a new piece of technology and that technology was known as the ultra sixty. Four ooh ooh now people who know their nintendo history know that the ultra sixty four became the Nintendo sixty right like Mike. I'm not sure what that became like. Ultra sixty battle out the cooling about the ultra sixty four was specifically its name because later development in development nintendo platforms included Dolphin. Yeah and what was the switch called and the AH the best one was revolution. Revolution was very good for the game. Cube right the week. Oh the way. I'm sorry Gamecube is Dolphin so they knew this. This platform is coming out so they decided to build a team that would take advantage of this new incredible to really generation. That was on the cusp of happening. It wasn't just face ball anymore. More Three D. was going to be everywhere so is to make a three D on rails shooter inspired by Virtual Cop Chris Plant. It's a big fan so I'm sure he has. Virtually top is a masterpiece. Yes Richard Crop for people who who don't know imagine virtual fighter back in the early days so characters made out of about twelve polygons all together and then you go around like a building that is just barebones architecture. Maybe Yeah Square's in and you shoot them in the face. The aiming is not especially good. It's also also perfect because it was made by Sega so evenings not good but it was also part. Listen that's what you learn as say fan. The game doesn't work. Sonic the HEDGEHOG. Yeah it's a mess. It's the best game ever made. So they had this very ambitious plan again early days of Three D.. They wanted to a shooter. They'd never really done that before as a company so in order to do that they built a crack team of ten people. Eight of whom had never made a professional video games It was a massively massively. Inexperienced team ga They brought on some people that had made done some modeling work. Some You know a little bit of like Hacky Games that they've done on their selves. But in but as an actual professional product eighty percent of the team had never made a professional game before so this was their first time and it sort of seemed like it was going to be a disaster from the outset. They out of access they were able to visit the sets of the movie Goldeneye. Great film by the way really holds up they were able to visit all the sides but as they were starting to develop they realize. That's how long this project was gonNA take the first year and a half. They didn't even have the specs of what the four was going to be like. Oh I had no idea so. There was a lot of X. factors that they didn't really know how to fill They basically just as they were developing it in that first year and a half they just took a stab. They guessed it what it was gonna play can and what the specs we're going to be and What they came up with essentially a hacked together piece of hardware controlled ruled by Sega Saturn Controller? So that was all they had unfortunately when they finally did find out what the specs were from Nintendo Intendo it was about seventy five percent less powerful than they thought they were going to have owned a big disaster. Carl Hilton was one of the designers. He spoke to a now Gamer in actually a really good retrospective which no longer online but you can read it on the way back machine He basically said that Color textures external costs a lot more in terms of processing power and because they were trying to cut down all the high Processing power stuff just to get Jan onto onto the end sixty four. They ended up making almost all of Goldeneye in gray scale and then using like a little bit tweaks to like ads him green for the jungle and stuff like that. But when you think back to Goldeneye it is like a lot of blacks and whites and grays like all of the maps are very simple and that's just because they were like super super super easy for them to actually get them working. Unfortunately that didn't really Ended up great for the frame rate. which again I know? You haven't played allegra point you you remember it. It does not run great. No but that's again a thing of back then. Nothing ran great. So yeah. Yeah that's true you like frame rate was so far from our minds it was just like Oh this is just how games feel Gamesville slow. Unfortunately when you go back in you like is like you tasted like true coke zero. I'm trying to play till like and then you go back in you. Try like diet coke. But why would I want this. I have the greatness. I never had either but I just feel like I'm connecting with the youth right here you are. I completely understand now. I am since devastated. I'm glad we could connect things for people The so obviously things are working great. They're also running to an issue with delays specifically that they are risking the potential to come out with Goldeneye. Wfan the game after the next bond movie comes out tomorrow. Never dies. Came out after Goldeneye in Nineteen ninety-seven and and at this point because the game had been delayed about a year and a half. They were really getting close to the point. Where like the new movie was GonNa come out and then this game was going to happen? That was like for a super old bond movie that really members at that point it was it was bad but something saved them. And that thing was Super Mario Sixty four. I guess it was just call. Maria's sixty four Super Mario sixty four it was called super to be clear. Mario Mario Super Mario Sixty four. Got It perfect. You know before that came came out obviously for me off. Other people is a kind of a revelation. Mary's it was like a big deal and even for the Goldeneye developers who was a big deal because they realized Oh we can make. Hey speaking of great frame rate by the way Chris Plant in Mary's sixty four just just saying but they saw this game and they were like got him. Oh we can make a three game. That's like a little more involved than just like wow like a like a gimmick of while you can explore three d environments so it after playing that They started adding things like objectives and like ai that you would follow around and Oh she's GonNa have this thing while you defend her stuff like

I'm just pasted pacing and then the worst thing is on the Mac it's saying okay now log into the Mac okay now give me the iconic how it's going back and forth and it's and it's not predictable so it's like I pace it wrong and now I felt this is actually issue for me this has been an issue for me on on Mojave I I didn't I thought it was computer was to it was bad a mojave it's really bad on Catalina candidate last night it was more than a dozen times I was going nuts yeah you have do we know it feels like it yeah it feels like they're so there is a state where it can be authorized to accept your security nationals and it sort of plays passcode or computer computer password against I cloud password accounts and uses them to verify each other you know when you set up your device because we all have a lot of apple devices I think the installation lost both and now trying to authorize one off the other and it's going back enforced until it finally sneaks in and then gets the other one feel like that I'm doing it as fast as I can you know dumb luck the grit scale rhythm shoot to where the puck is going not where it is is that what you're saying she finds upper right corner hit it hit it we're here to hit it where the goal is loving so I don't know if this ten dot fifteen that one fixes that but it does say resolves an issue that prevents accepting I clad terms and conditions when multiple cloud cancer logged in.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so in an era when so many companies competing for your subscription dollar what you'd think would you pay five dollars for just a handful of shows whereas apple caused them stories to believe in so it's a the subject. I've been pondering about all week since the apple event when apple announced the pricing for Apple TV just five dollars yet. There's only eight shows in one documentary humanity at launch on November. I I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech. Apple's move is bold especially considering that the arcade gaming service which is also five dollars monthly and launching this Thursday boasts of a hundred games now apple. TV isn't just five dollars. It's actually free free for anybody for one year who buys a new IPHONE IPAD or Macintosh computer but compared to Netflix and its bulk of original shows Apples Cup board is really bear but how about to the other services. I mean apple. Yes it has the lowest price of any of the premium subscription services but but only by a dollar. CBS All access and who both started six dollars for the ad supported services in terms of bulk CBS has its entire primetime lineup it talks thousands of episodes of TV shows including all these like I love Lucy and cheers but in the original apartment isn't actually that far off from apple it promotes just seven series on its website they include the good fight to New Star Trek series a remake of the twilight zone in the acclaimed why Women Kill Hulu on the other hand has way more with most of the primetime offerings of NBC ABC and Fox and it lists nearly sixty original series movies documentaries humanities including the emmy winning the handmaid's tale along with the library of older movies and TV series as well for two dollars more than Apple TV plus. You can get Disney plus lunching November twelfth and it's complete library of classics along with new series that include the Mandalay Rian based on star wars movies and updated the high school all musical franchise the return of the Disney Channel Classic lizzy McGuire in a live action remake of the nineteen fifty five film.

Netflix is next starting at nine dollars monthly or thirteen or sixteen dollars if you WANNA watch and four K. and on more screens and Amazon prime video works out to about ten dollars a month or one hundred and twenty dollars yearly it's package with the prime shipping and entertainment service service again. Netflix and Amazon offered thousands of shows mostly library movies and TV programs through the years along with less than one hundred original TV series can can apple survive with just a handful even if they have stars like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon in the lead.

Apple is finally moving beyond the iPhone as the smartphone industry stalls out
"Right. Well, let's start with the with with apple now. The last time we had John was right after their big the big the big announcement with all the movie stars. And you know, an all the services and all that stuff. They and they are betting on that under bending on their services the future of the services. Correct. Yes. I mean that really is going to be what makes up the difference for the slowing high phone sales that continue to be a problem for them. Okay. So what do they what are they focusing on? Now. Yeah. So what we got? We got earnings report on Tuesday, and it for example, iphone revenue fell seventeen percent year-over-year, which is is not a small percent at all. And one of the things that really made the different travel and actually ended up saving them here where their services doubts like I cloud, apple music, the app store and also the wearables right stuff like the apple watch. So it's really interesting to see that already. Apple is going to all these changes rather dramatically, and they say that Indiana, it's going to be fine. But this this in between period where we had apple news plus launch back a month ago. Right back in March and their new apple TV, plus compete with Netflix, and Disney and all these people it's not out yet either. It's apple arcade gaming service. Those those coming later this year. So it's going to be interesting to see how much apple changes. And remember there. I still wanna sell us iphones. Right. It's not going to be the big thing about them all the time anymore. So it since the iphones have fallen a little bit on hard times. Is that is that what's happening? Well, it you know, I would love to have Apple's problems. Yeah. Yeah. Really what it is is that anymore right in this case it actually drops. But they're still details of the iphones thirty one billion dollars for the quarter that is larger than most companies on the plan. Sure goes, you know, why some people look at this and they doom and Google, right? This is a really bad sign for apple and the future may not be good. A lot of other people that they well, wait a minute. You know, they're still huge company. They got opportunity to change. The obviously see that they need to change how they do business to succeed and to consider it continue going on and they're doing those efforts right now. So maybe it all turned out. Okay. And you know, everyone would be dead against apple typically end up going barley. So I'm not going to bet against the services that they are that they they they they're planning. And then are offering heavy announced one of the major things that people complained about for that for the presentation the last time, we talked was that you know, they announced on these things, but didn't have a price. For many of them are subscription rate or any of that stuff. Have they decided on that had they updated that at all? I wish. No those numbers. I will bet you right now. I think this is a pretty safe bet. I don't think we're going to get the pricing until September. And the reason is that the big iphone type, right? So you know, it would make sense that they would wait until September. When they have the big ones. Right. Maybe they'd bring out Oprah again. And we'll get to find out how much money they want from us. They really interesting though in the time between Apple's announcement. And now we've learned that Disney wants to charge for Disney and that service, which by the way, you have to remember the company said, they're betting company on this. This is no minor thing. They're streaming service is these insurance Disney, and one of the things they said is that it's gonna cost you seven bucks a month that is vastly cheaper than Netflix. Yeah. And it, and I think it also cheaper than what some people thought apple TV puts my I'm curious. I'd love to be. Fly on the wall where they're trying to figure out what the price is. There's actually rumors out there that is you subscribe to several of apple services. Like, let's say you buy my cloud, and you get apple music might get apple TV close for a cheaper rate or maybe for free. So there's a lot of rumors about how they're gonna maybe play with this to get you interested in you know, that you enticed into paying the money. I'm really curious to see outweighs out. Yeah. Seven dollars. That's that's a fantastic rate for. Right. Yeah. Especially if you're a parent, and you know, you are you're in the middle of the the Disney run up on of every maybe the red. Yeah. You you that price looks
