Our first story for 2023 involves Bond…James Bond. Particularly the teased 60th Anniversary Edition of Stern Pinball’s 007 game. The base game based upon Sean Connery’s rendition of the world’s most famous fictious spy has been out since last year but Stern decided to change things up a little by creating a completely different playfield [...]

Back in my day, when all phones were connected to a wall and the only way to skip commercials was record an over-the-air broadcast, then fast forward through them all, our game systems were cutting edge.
