Quoted from adol75:

I third what you both say because I did the exact same at PHoF. I played Spinal tap thought it was horrible, then turned back and put a coin in Thunderbirds, which oddly wasn't as terrible as I remembered it was.

This is good news for TBAG. Maybe it can finally vault out of last place on the pinside top SS games...

Quoted from Gribbs:

Your opinion (shitting on a movie you haven’t seen in a thread where there are likely fans) got some pushback? How rude and unexpected! Oh, Honey!

I didn't shit on anything. I said i thought the movie looked stupid. A plot about a made up band?

I still do.

I'm in a thread about a pinball machine, not about a movie.

And for some reason you think you should be rude over and again to anyone who disagrees with you about a movie, and not about the pinball machine.
Did you make the movie? Are you financially invested in opinions about a movie that came out 40 years ago and that some people have never even heard of?

It's a fucking shit pinball machine about a fucking stupid movie.

There you go.

And even more to the point, i've played it, and as far as i can tell you haven't.
So who's got an opinion about it that counts?

You don't disagree about a movie, you haven't seen the movie so you have no idea about what you are talking about.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Marty DiBergi ever cause a meltdown before.

Relax guys! Let’s have a good time, all the time.

I do so!

I'm talking about a pinball machine, in a thread about a pinball machine.

#1206 10 months ago

Dont worry folks... if you are really not sure, just go by the models reactions about the game:

Well you're actually the one who started taking about the movie in a pinball thread

#1208 10 months ago

All good guys and gals, didn't mean to bumble into a neticane.

#1209 10 months ago

I was curious if anyone played this at PHOF... it's funny to read the reactions so far have been what my pinball buddy said as he recently played it there and basically said the exact same things. He was shocked it played way worse than Thunderbirds. (That's saying something.)

It's amazing that Homepin is still going.. the way they do business is so extremely baffling.

.. also Spinal Tap, the movie is one of the greatest of all time.

It’s ok. It really is a fine line between clever and stupid.

So what?

People get paid to put shit on movies they don't like.

Being critical of something is generally considered completely ok.

Being rude to others is generally not.

Don't think so.

Just a bit more rudeness directed at the person rather than the discussion.

Sorta like children do.

Basic and unproductive.

Yeah, listen, I’d love to stand around and chat, but I’ve gotta go sit down in the lobby and wait for the limo.

Sounds like Gribbs has a gig at the enormodome.

It got canceled, but it was in Boston which isn’t much of college town, anyway.

That official video is an abomination. HomePin is a joke.

But isn't that fitting for Spinal Tap?

#1226 10 months ago

So the pin sucks just like the movie?

I tried to watch the movie and I thought it sucked.

I think the pin looks like it sucks so I most likely won't try.

I feel better........

You offered criticism without any insight. Is this the first time you've got pushback for just calling something "stupid"? No one would give you shit if you said "it's not my thing."

Would have been funny if vid ended with a bit of slam-dunk action

#1232 10 months ago

But look at you go!

It's hard to believe that someone could be that good at interneting.

#1233 10 months ago

Hey,
Can anyone help with information about the rules or basic strategies for how to play the game?

I watched the reveal video and downloaded the manual from the Homepin website, but can't find any information about the rules of the game. There is a rule card in the video, but when I took a screenshot of it, it's too blurry to read.

I think there is a multiball that you get somehow by hitting Derek's pod, but I'm not sure how to lock balls and how to start the multiball.

I see from the flyer that the spinner moves the guitar. But what does that do?

Are there modes available somewhere?

What is a basic strategy to get a decent score on the machine?

Any help would be appreciated.

#1234 10 months ago

I don’t judge games before playing them…. I haven’t played this yet, nor have i watched the trailer, but I’m here to tell you that it this game sucks. .

#1235 10 months ago

Sounds like the two people who have played it both complain the flippers are weak with perhaps the left flipper being almost non-functional?
Any game in that condition will not be fun to play, IMHO.

So it was supposed to be a licensed Spinal Tap Calendar but Nigel spells about as well as Quentin Tarantino? Ian just doing as he’s told!
