Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:
I'm not sure which is worse: having games in the basement like you, or having games on the second floor like me. I guess it depends on if you are adding to or taking away from the collection more often (i.e. I've found that going down the stairs is much easier than going up them).
Huh? How does this happen?
I don't own HS, but have played it several times. The Getaway is definitely an evolved version of the theme, and the supercharger takes it over the top.
BTW, all High Speed and Getaway owners need to get rid of the checkered flag flipper toppers. This is not a racing/speedway themed pin! Sure it is car themed (not a race car, mind you), but you are on highways running away from the police that are chasing you, and not doing a set number of loops around a track racing against other cars.
I offer 2 options for flipper toppers to go with the themes:
Getaway/High Speed: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/94888
Stairs suck, but if I had a straight shot it wouldn't be so bad. It's that damn hard 90 turn at the bottom with a too-small landing that makes it a nightmare.
I'm not terribly in love with the checkered nonsense so that'll definitely be going at some point. I already trashed the..errr.."custom" gameblades, about as quickly as I could.
I don't like the green pop caps but I didn't have a full set of new red caps OR three red 555 bulbs, and it looked much more..... orange. I'll probably buy another set of faceted Data East caps in red/green/yellow along with color-matching Evo BriteCaps. Or maybe I'll steal them from my Taxi and do something different there, idk. I'm not really planning on doing a whole lot of customizing with Getaway, at least right now. Other than powdercoating rails/lockbar/legs and possibly Cliffys at some point, I just plan on playing it and hopefully eventually clearing off the stupid diverter error.
Not sure if High Speed is a forever keeper now that I have Getaway, either. It seems kind of redundant given the similar layouts. But for right now, it's not going anywhere. They do look awesome next to each other.
