Tabor's Arcade



Episode 242: the Blissey episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! Tonight, we have a special guest! He is the VP of Marketing at LAI Games, a multi-talented designer, film-maker, and creator, and a big fan of Miz Sylver's mom! (Aren't we all???) LAI Games is a part of Helix Leisure, a company with diverse arcade products, including the card swipe readers (Embed)! LAI makes some great games you may have played in the arcade, like Asphalt 9, Virtual Rabbids: The Big Ride, and Speed of Light! Their latest venture, which Miz Sylver tried at their PAX East demo, is the home VR title, Arcade Legend! This arcade tycoon game (where you can actually play the games, too) was the talk of the show! We talk with Tabor about his childhood love of Mario, his entry in the industry designing ads, his love of Pistol Whip, and his dream projects on this week's episode. Follow the game on Twitter or on Steam!
