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.
