I´ve had limited access to the internet for the past couple of days but I have enough time to cover a couple of things at the moment.
First off, Jersey Jack Pinball released a new video of their Wizard of Oz Pinball machine yesterday, check it out below. This has a lot of voice samples although from what the email stated, the software isn´t 100% ready yet.
Second, Play Mechanix has sent out a press release about the opportunity to win a trip to New York City as a part of the Big Buck HD World Championship that is coming up in November. Essentially you just need to apply for it through the Big Buck HD Facebook page, more details can be read through the press release below. Sega also issued a press release today about Operation G.H.O.S.T. but there is nothing there we haven´t discussed already on the site here.
