Interview: Zen Studios (Zen Pinball)

Tony and I got a chance to talk with Mel Kirk and Neal Sorens from Zen Studios. This is a quick 30 minute interview where we talk about Pinball FX2 as well as the upcoming Zen Pinball 3D. Both Mel and Neal give us some behind the scenes info on what goes into making tables and working with Marvel. They also announce the North America release date for Zen Pinball 3D. As an added bonus, we somehow get to talking about Mario Kart in the end.

Another week of news, another Okie Cast. This week, the trio of Tony, Micah and myself engage in a battle of wits. Not really, but that kind of sounded cool. We actually do the same thing we do every week. We talk about the latest nail in the coffin for The Last Guardian, how EA is breaking into the used car business and how the world loves to dance with little blue people. You won’t believe your ears… or maybe you will. How should I know?

Nintendo Okie Podcast - Episode 95

People, this show was plagued by technical difficulties. I guess Skype hates us. However, I think we had a pretty good show. For the first time in a while, we have four people on the podcast. As the file downloads you can look forward to the following highlights; everyone yells at Mac as he defends Microsoft, I am labeled less of a man because I don’t own a 3DS, we learn that Tony stinks at Mario Kart and Micah just continues to be cool as he reminds us of all the above.

Episode 95
Hosts: Tony, Shelby, Alex, Micah

Nintendo Okie Podcast - Episode 94

We are creeping closer to 100 every week. I don’t think I am ready for that many numbers. Thankfully we are still in the 90s, for now. Duty calls once again for Mac so we bring friend on the site, Micah Keyan. This week Micah and Tony both talk a lot about Super Mario 3D Land while I can do nothing but listen since I don’t have a 3DS. It’s for the best because I am too busy playing Borderlands anyway. You can expect all this and more on this week’s episode of the Okie Cast.

Episode 94
Hosts: Tony, Shelby, Micah
Run Time: 1:36:32

Tony says all this at the end of the show but for some reason I still say it all here. If you have something to say to us, send an email to We have our trivia podcast we produce each week.
