Now that Timeshock has passed, with flying colours, the Kickstarter test we can prepare for its resurrection some time soon.
By the way, I cracked and went for alpha/beta test, so expect to have impressions on the very first versions of Timeshock in a near future.
Meanwhile there is a place I recommend that you visit, the ProPinball forum here
It is a place for pinball fans and one expects that in the following months it will become the meeting place of ProPinball aficionados.
It is by visiting the forum that I stumbled upon a post that gave some interesting links to Hardcore Gaming 101 (I ignored its existence till now). They have some very detailed historical-oriented articles on pinball, like for instance the one on 21st Century Entertainment who produced, among many others, the famous games Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies (which, were never ported to the Mac: I had to wait for the iPhone/iPad in order to play them). A visit to Hardcore Gaming 101 may be interesting in particular for retro-gaming fans.
