Experience "the real simulator" with Pinball Fantasies on the Atari Jaguar. In this episode, you'll hear company histories, rules of the four pinball tables, lots of tunes, highly contradictory reviews, some questionable adjective use, and the surprising high score holder for the Stones 'n' Bones table on Shinto's cartridge.
 
Also in this episode is feedback from Randal, Louis, and Janitor Sean!
