...like a real man.

Quoted from Frippertron:

Spinners are better than ramps! That feels better, I always wanted to say that!

YES - and a good old set of drop targets. Not everything has to be a flashy toy.

Some of my favorite spinner shots?

-Fish Tales is up there, especially to get that monster fish that can score big without shooting for caster's club or messing with multiball. Last FT I played I think had a juiced spinner because it would go for eight seconds or so when you ripped it hard.

-Black Hole with the "oh shit" feeling immediately to follow as the ball goes to the lower PF, hoping you can open the reentry gate before draining down ther.

-Black Knight, challenging to time on a ball through the right inlane that lights it for max points. Feels great to hit clean. And it's a spinner with a ramp, leading to the relative safety of the upper PF. Your best friend in multiball.

-And of course Gottlieb's Genie, the first spinner I recall shooting on a table I can name.

-Ripley's spinner serving as the "camera" shot might be tops if it was more relevant to scoring. Seems for the most part spinners dropped in prominence after the early SS era.

I think No Fear game sucks

Quoted from bicyclenut:

I think No Fear game sucks

Steve Ritchie confessed in a 2001 interview that some of the shots on NF are harder to hit than he intended:

I was never that happy with the way No Fear came out and I'll tell you why. I really should have done one more white wood and taken out or modified one of the shots because they were too narrow if you ask me. Mr. Nicastro the President asked me to make the game quickly, as there was a hole in the production schedule. I should have just done what I needed to do.

When you're missing, NF is the clunkiest of his games. But it rewards accuracy. It's one that will make you a player who can kill a mosquito on a spot target in the back of a playfield with a flipper button. Hitting a shot with a narrow or not exactly straight angle is always satisfying, like shooting FunHouse's hidden hallway from the right flipper. My last FH session was hot garbage scorewise (lower GI being out didn't help) but I hit that shot and felt good nonetheless.

And I certainly must confess - a shitty pinball beats a shitty video game any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

I'm patiently waiting for the Deeproot dumpster fire to be revealed to be a Brewster's Millions scenario, but I'm not comfortable posting in the official thread.

I had a buddy come by for a few beers last night and check out flash that I just purchased..his score is still displayed as the highest so far..wtf..

I constantly look at pinball for sale ads.
Here, eBay, CL, Pinball Classifieds, wherever.............
And I see something that catches my eye.
Then over then next few days.......
Nah, too expensive.
Well maybe......
Nah, too far away.
Well maybe........
Nah, condition not good enough.
Well maybe.......
Nah, don't really have room.
Well maybe........
Nah, that's not a game I really want right now.
Well maybe.........
OK, that's it. I'm going to contact the seller and set something up.
Hey, I can't believe they sold it already!

Quoted from dookski:

that's bragging, not confessing

I've done 100 crossword puzzles over the past thirty years - using pens, pencils, crayons, markers, ketchup or whatever was handy. I came close to completing one correctly, once! (I fondly remember that one as a win)

Had a dream last night that I picked up a Fathom for ten bucks. Yup, it's come to this, I've actually started to dream about pinball.

Games I love to see at pinball shows: MM, AFM, TZ, TOM, MB, Totan, any new pin from the last 4 years. It means the games worth playing will have small/no crowds and I can play at my leisure.
