THIS WEEK'S ARCADE & PINBALL NEWS - 3/25/2022

Coffee and pinball news, perfect together. I cranked out most of this week's arcade and pinball news last night so I have it for everyone bright and early today. This is another jam packed issue with updates on the Fathom Remake, This is Spinal Tap, Weird Al, location write-ups and all sorts of other cool stuff.


The Texas Pinball Festival officially kicks off today. I'm not there, but I will keep an eye out for any surprise news updates from the show and share them as soon as I see them.


Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, this Portland area arcade looks amazing…
