Another Italian bottom is predictable but a bummer nonetheless.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Looks like fun as usual. My only completely unsubstantiated complaint is that like every Stern game of the last 10 years they put something in it that will take constant infuriating adjusting to keep from shooting balls straight down the middle.
Yeah, this is directly related to the phasing out of subways. Wish they would at least have subways in the premium/LE to mitigate this issue.
Quoted from jar155:
Spinners and pop bumpers are horribly implemented by Stern these days. Pop bumpers don't do anything but give you random awards inside a closed in nest. They put them in there for bullet points. All Stern really cares about these days are ramp shots, orbit shots, and bash toys.
Amen, they seem to be willfully making pops as inconsequential as possible, for whatever reason. Design dictate from above?
This reminds me of Apple's strategy on pricing based on storage capacity - e.g. 16GB is 300, 32 GB is 400, 64 GB is 500 for the same model otherwise. It costs nowhere near $100 to add that amount of memory but they know people will pay it.
