Well that i aint I'm sure it was longer than that. I was worn out on the last ball and lost my focus. Anyway i see its 80th on Live which is by far the best i've ever reached on any table.

Nah, he's just Canadian. If he was playing with mittens on the score would've been even higher.

Every time my score starts creeping near a new high my eyes start watering because I find myself not blinking.

Your guys' scores on Spider-Man are just unreal. I spent a good 45 minutes trying to hammer away at beating my 87 mil... no luck yet. I couldn't even beat superfro.

I played for about an hour last night mostly on Wolverine. I really like that table, though I have yet to beat Saber tooth. I wish more tables had skill shot bonuses.

I'm trying to force myself to not play it again until this weekend. I seemed to have developed a terrible eye twitch in the past day or so, and I'm completely convinced it's from drying out my eyes staring at the screen for hours playing this goddamn pinball.

It's also gotten to the point of infiltrating my dreams, and when I'm seeing that shit in my sleep, it's time to take a break.

I'm playing on a small monitor and am desperately hoping the eye watering will end when I upgrade to a larger screen.

Do they? Maybe I only noticed it in Wolverine because they zoom in on the foot before you launch.

Please don't tell me you are still playing on that 13" monitor.

Good lord man. I'm on a 50". I'm assuming my ball is the size of your entire screen.

How has your head not exploded?

It almost has. I have total technology paralysis and every time I go to investigate upgrading to an LCD HDTV I just get confused with the ridiculous amount of options and how two units that look similar on paper will have dramatically different prices. I'm also using an old home theater in a box that I bought used from a buddy like 10 years ago.

I had yet to beat your Spidey score before telling you to suck it, just part of the almost daily ritual of one of us beating the other. I'd take it back, but the damage has been done.

Certainly all four Marvel Tables and Secrets of the Deep have Skill Shots. Not sure about the other three FX2 tables. Holding the Right (?) Trigger will pan the camera and briefly display the skill shot before you launch your ball.

Rome - the rotating statue is the skill shot
Pasha - there's a gauge that you have to hit
Biolab - the hole in the thingy
Secrets - shark

I just figured since spunkmonkey beat my score on Wolverine that you are so jealous of me that you will even stoop to rubbing other people's scores in my face.

I noticed you didn't respond to my message on Live regarding your "deep" comment. Did you get my reference or am I conversing with an angry 13 year old?
