In this latest episode of the Official Galloping Ghost Arcade Podcast, GGA owner Doc Mack and 2016 Gamer of the Year Pete Hahn cover:

The latest expansion at the arcade that opened last Saturday 3/5/2016 and go over all the games that were added and/or received a cabinet upgrade to an original/dedicated cab.

Due to not recording in almost 4 weeks, there are plenty of scoring updates to cover - many local and World Records have been set in the last few weeks, including an incredible scoring battle for the Capcom classic "Forgotten Worlds". We also cover the Monday Mystery Game tournament winners and let slip when we will reveal the prize for the first to 10 wins.

Also covered are the many events that the arcade is going to be involved in, either at the arcade or elsewhere, such as: Midwest Gaming Classic (in Brookfield, WI), Sega Week, the Annual Shmups Event, and a never before seen game coming to the arcade floor this weekend - Argus!

We go over new house high and World Record scores set in the last couple weeks, and events coming up soon such as our Skycurser Launch event.

Thanks for listening!
