Wow, that's a downer. One would hope that he's come to terms with things now.

I don't know that just because the actor had struggles, that we shouldn't be able to criticize or make fun of the character.

Some new and different types of content from Greg and I. It would mean a ton if you all shared the videos or like/subscribe. Thanks again everyone!

Then ,while waiting for you guys to talk each other in to who’s got the best service ,silverware ,etc. the gals go out and eat themselves ?Sorry ,this has been on my mind I need to know

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Since we are still on anger-inducing machines, MET is on the front of my mind. A core goal is to complete 3 columns of inserts to light crank it up. Maybe if you’re lucky do it 2-3 times in a single game for the ages. What kills me is not closing out a column or two and draining and losing your progress. It seems so simple to do but requires much skill.
And then there is the rising cross inlane. Hit 4 in-line targets to start cross multiball and then hit the cross 3 times to lock a ball on magnet. One more hit frees ball and awards super jackpot. That’s maybe 8 hits required. Easy right? MET brings out the turrets in me.

I often find MET pretty frustrating for the same reason. The lack of progress carrying over ball to ball on both the column completion (if you don't quite get one or more locked in) and the grave markers resetting, leaving you with little to show for the ball can be infuriating. Columns are generally what I'm going for as I don't want to just smack Sparky all day just for the MB, and CIU is where the big points are. Obviously you are collecting items just hitting them to get columns lit, but that just isn't the same, LOL. I guess that's part of the charm and makes it unique really.

I'm not sure how I'd feel about making CIU require even fewer items to start. Feels like that would transform those into just more of your standard modes that nearly every game has. Here the way they are now they're basically mini wizard modes...

You need some PinMonk spike 2 power supply fans in your life. In the first part of that video it sounds like someone is testing jet engines in the room, lol.

I almost spit my coffee everywhere while watching this… That’s the funniest video you’ve done. Pure awesomeness!

Haha. I like to say it sounds like someone is vacuuming in an adjacent room. Zach knows all about them, though. He did a great install video for the Spooky version of the quiet fan kit for the power supply.

Here it is! The reveal of the Elite Pinball Toppers POTC Pinball Topper! Enjoy. Whew it’s bad ass and one of the greatest pinball toppers ever created!

#5816 74 days ago

Wowza. Me likey. Elite’s JJPOTC topper is the new ‘my Precious’. I WANT!!!

What’s the installed height above the existing top of cab? Looks like a good 10+ inches, oh my. I’ve said too much.

#5817 74 days ago

Yeah but Nah!

#5818 74 days ago

You are unimpressed or think it is only worth ___ to you? Fill in the blank, if you don’t mind. I am just curious is all.

#5819 74 days ago

I am thinking Elite is planning to come out with another model of this JJPOTC topper. They specifically called this the Elite Edition, which leaves open ability to have another level of this topper, as they’ve done with all other releases. Maybe they should have gold plated the plaque on this edition, so that the next level release could make their plaques of fools gold and offer it for $1,750. I’ll bet they could sell 250 of them. As the demand for the elite edition was strong. It sold out in 2 hours, right?

It's OK to look at, nothing special IMO. But the price that will be asked is almost what I would have paid for a pinball , " back in the day" not that long ago. Pinball has changed for the worst.
Definitely a rich man ( or stupid ) mans hobby these days and some of the people that are new tend to be spoilt arseholes.

I believe Elite has plans to release a Standard edition but no plans to have a middle model this release.

#5822 74 days ago

It's pretty neat. I like that it has both a display and physical moving elements. I've never seen that before. It's a good idea that I'm surprised no one has attempted before.

#5823 74 days ago

Toppers are the new LE, but this one is insane. Does it even need to be on a pinball machine? It is that cool!

#5824 74 days ago

Looks like the Elite POTC is sold out. Hope they all went to Pinsiders!

So far, so good this year. Keep those reviews coming. Can you repost weighting of each category? Looking over Zach’s individual marks seem to average lower than it should for Godzilla.

#5828 73 days ago

Thanks for an excellent gnr review.
You have great chemistry and your enthusiasm is engaging and inspiring.
Keep it up!

#5829 73 days ago

I think it would have looked better with non-symetrical wheels doing the waves. Now it looks more like see-saw, then sea.

Another great review , I enjoy all your videos .
I disagree with a couple things but it would be pretty boring if we all thought the same .
The atmosphere on this game is unreal but the pingraffix Rock Topper takes it to another level .

NEW SDTM: Toy Story 4 Pinball First Impressions

#5837 10 days ago

I’m completely with you guys on this one and I haven’t even gotten to flip it yet. Thanks for this first take, the Game looks like pure joy in a box! Can’t wait to get one.

Yes they did. In their video they talk about they went up to JJP a couple of weeks ago and played it.

We went up a couple of weeks ago to film the Featurette. I opened an LE this weekend as well. Been having a lot of fun on it. Regardless of the hatred or the game not having what many want, I’m most looking forward to those people getting some good time on one and then admitting that it’s a really good game.

#5842 10 days ago

FlipNout Crew, Thanks for this steller overview. Glad I have my CE order from you guys!!

I agree the pinheads disappointment of theme, but I am on the list of short fans that like TS4 as well (not my favorite, but I enjoy watching the film).

Just want to say continue to make a video based on the Code after you have played it more. Hearing some details about how this pin can continue to have re-playability along with progressive difficulty caught me by surprise.

I like the fact that if a mode is repeated its objective gets harder every additional time. That should keep it fresh for a long time for me given I'm an average player.

I'm really trying not to judge this table on what it doesn't have. Sure I was hoping for something different but it is what it is. However I am judging it on what it does have, and with all due respect I find it a little weird that you guys did not talk at all about the 10" screen considering how much of the playfield it takes up. I mean it's freakin huge. I'm not saying this game is good or bad I'll decide when I play it, but I think a lot of people are legitimately asking....why such a big screen and does it make sense to the game play. Based on everything I've seen so far (and I've watched everything) it does not appear to make much sense which is a shame. And if I'm wrong I will happily admit it.

#5844 10 days ago

Nice video guys. I'm playing a TS4 later today. Can't wait to see if it's really as fun as it looks!

Cool, I'll listen to the video then. Just didn't want to spend time on hearing about non-gameplay impressions. Do you guys release your audio as a podcast? I have to leave Youtube running and my phone on to listen to Youtube while I work or drive, etc.

Thanks.

You can download youtube videos. Lots of sites let you split out the audio only, too. Don't do any of the ones that want you to install an app. The browser-based converters are fine.

Oh, and also don't search for "youtube downloaders" on google since they suppress those sites somewhat because, well, they own youtube and don't want you doing that. You'll have better results on bing, usually.

Yup, I use those for some videos or audios I need for projects. Just is a hassle to do that to get Toy Story 4 impressions as audio on to my iPhone.

You played it and thought it was that bad? I'm surprised, because it's a well-designed game, with lots of good shots, and fun code. I could see not liking it for personal reasons, but other than the price, I don't see how one could call TS stinky.
