Quoted from DanTheGlassMan:
I enjoyed the treasure cove thread way too much.
The one that's pinned?
I find it unbelievable that people buy $180 led light kits. The markup has to be 150%.
Any pinball purchase only serves to fulfill the desires of your ego and self worth.
Sopranos has a good story. Climb the ranks to become the Boss. Problem with story driven is that they become too linear and a good game is a long game and makes you want to move on to something else.
All Sterns since about Spiderman play and feel about the same to me and I can't imagine having a room full of them.
Quoted from punkin:
My first confession.
The sigh that Gandalf makes on The Hobbit when you press start is the same noise i make when i'm about to take a piss.
I tend to also answer my pinball machines, Hobbit is a favourite;
smaug: How do you choose to die?
Me: Standing up!
I also always call the Gandalf multiball voice for the Smaug multi and i roar back at the dragon on screen.
My mates laugh at me because i spit all over the glass yelling at it. I really do feel part of the game in the hobbit.
The also laugh at me when i'm having a good game and they think i am doing dirty things to the pinball machine.
Out of the frying pan...AND INTO THE FIRE!!!!!!!!
(please tell me you yell that like I do)
Quoted from RCA1:
[LICENSED THEME]! [OTHER THING FROM LICENSED THEME] Wizard Mode!
...new machine comes out that is not their pet theme. "Who cares about XX machine. It's dumb and I hate it".
(Rinse. Repeat until we get a stupid Jaws machine that nobody wants or cares about except for 6 people who won't buy it because the cabinet isn't blue enough.)
Quoted from dung:
I am so sick of people sitting on overpriced games. It doesn't matter how rare your machine is. If it hasn't sold in 3 months or more you are overpriced. Sick of people who hold onto something over a few hundred dollars. Game has been for sale for almost a year take it as a sign.
Whenever I see that I just assume it's someone low key bragging about their collection.
I see pictures of beautiful shop jobs but all I focus on is the ratted out crappy lockdown receiver bar...
A surprising number of spare parts in my workbox are because I ordered the wrong thing or way too many of the right thing.
I don't like when people call playfield features "toys".
"not enough toys on the playfield" = cringe
