ARGcast #127: PAX West 2018 Interviews and Pinball FX3 with Mel Kirk

by ARGcast

Mel Kirk of Zen Studios chats with us about the acquisition of classic pinball tables for Pinball FX3, then David shares his interviews from PAX West 2018!

It’s an ARGcast double feature! We welcome Mel Kirk of Zen Studios back on the show to talk about Pinball FX3 acquiring the rights for Williams/Bally pinball tables. What do they plan to do to make hardcore pinheads happy? We dig into that and more! Plus David speaks with the likes of Swery (Deadly Premonition, The Good Life), Tommy Refenes (Super Meat Boy, Super Meat Boy Forever), Greg Johnson (ToeJam & Earl franchise), and others at PAX West.

Having essentially two main topics this week means we had to cut down our usual format. Still, there was plenty of news to get into starting with Superman himself Henry Cavill being cast as Geralt of Rivia for The Witcher Netflix series. That’s followed by news that the last Doom II secret has apparently been revealed after 24 years, and SNK teasing a new game. Could it be Samurai Shodown? The Last Blade? Either way, we’re excited!

Don’t forget to also grab hold of our game code giveaways. Then Robert has one more news story to drop on the return of Ninja Warriors that will make fans of co-op brawling happy. Stay tuned next week for our usual format, ARGonauts!

We are partnered with Don’t Feed The Gamers! Be sure to check them out for fan-focused gaming content.
