Star Trek: Next Generation pinball

After a week off for DragonCon, we return with a pair of Kickstarters that caught my eye. It's Thursday, so we throw on the unnecessary K and get started with a confession:

Okay, here's the thing. I'm a pinball junkie. Not a wizard, mind you...but a junkie. When I found there was pinball ROM emulation software to let you play pinball simulations on Windows...holy crap, I think I lost an entire week. One of my life goals is to go to Las Vegas and get lost in the Pinball Hall of Fame. So when I hear that there's a group called FarSight Studios that's working on digitizing pinball games so you can play them on multiple modern gaming platforms--and that they've already successfully raised the funds necessary to digitize my favorite pinball game of all time--the Twilight Zone game? All I can say is hell, yes.

If you watch till the end of the video that comes after the break, you could be a pinball geek. I'm just saying.

You can find their Kickstarter and support it here. Their official site is here, but weirdly they don't appear to have a full list of the pinballs you can buy in-game on their app. Weird.


The campaign to get Die Hard in the National Film Registry is now campaigning to get a badass new poster for the film by Garry Brown. I have to admit, it's pretty damn sweet. And yes, the video takes a lot of time to get to the poster...but you do get to see Bruce Willis blow some stuff up. So that's something.

That Kickstarter can be found here.
