I'm down for this documentary about Midway


Assuming it's funded on Kickstarter

"The one consistent theme throughout all of them was that they loved to party."

With that, I'm down to watch Insert Coin, a documentary about Midway (Smash TV, NBA Jam, Robotron 2084) during its prime. Producer Josh Tsui, the face of Mortal Kombat's Liu Kang and co-founder of Robomodo, has taken to Kickstarter for $75,000 in crowdfunding.

Here's how he describes the company as it existed in the 1990s:

"A nightmare for the higher ups, but a boon to gamers, Midway offered an unrestricted environment -- no management, no producers, no rules. Each team would take the nugget of an idea and just run with it, sometimes not realizing that they were making massive hits. Even though the team was part of a large corporation, its personality was small, agile, and independent."

I hope they talk about the last boss of Narc. Where the hell did that come from? Hell?
