I wasn't sure why the fuck you were singing the bee gees at me to be honest, so I ignored it.

Also - what was my comment that spurred that one?

Canadians are polite when trash talking that's true. That is what you were trying to convey here, right?

"Hatred runs deep."

Please don't take it back as I have already ordered a T-shirt.

Hope it says something like "I beat Miyu and Superfro on my first ball. Every. Damn. Time."

And one handed at that since you're masturbating at the time from the sounds of it.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Is there a website that explains what the point of each Marvel table is? In Iron Man, for example, I figured out to hit the three center "blockers" and then hit the ball into that same spot when they fall away to turn into Iron Man. Then I have no idea what to do. It'd be nice to find an explanation somewhere.

Within the game. See below.

I finally understand why I was randomly beating the Green Goblin and what exactly I am supposed to do with Doc Oc.
It is buried in the menus and not obvious at all imo. I only found it in a fit of frustration when I was lamenting the lack of the help feature seen in the Williams Collection game.

Well yeah. Isn't that how it's supposed to work?

And my whining before was just really over you guys and your piss poor time tracking skills. For the record that 270M game was like 45 minutes and it broke my fingers.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I noticed that for the Steam sale SlamIt Pinball: Big Break is on sale for $1.24. Not sure if it's any good or not, but I'm tempted to pick it up. Anyone play this before?

edit: Nevermind, sounds like support for it is basically dead and it has many bugs. Oh well.

Props to fro on his score on Wolverine. I think it's neat that you can read braille, I just feel bad that you can't hear anything that's going on on the tables you're playing.

The worst part was that 110M of that was on ball 1. So pretty much a fluke. Finishing the Sentinel and Sabertooth challenges opens up opportunity for stupid amounts of points. I had never finished the Sentinel challenge and in my high score game I did it twice on ball 1. WTF?

Ok, if any of you guys need an extra person to be ahead of on the leaderboards, feel free to add Fu Man Stan for Marvel goodness.

Okay, PTOM is officially high. They gave Marvel Pinball a 5/10 score. Now to be fair, I haven't played it on a PS3, but their criticisms that the game has nasty control lag, that the ball feels dead, there's no action in the center of the tables and the music sucks just don't make sense to me. I wonder how they could have missed the boat so bad. I've played Zen Pinball on the PS3 and thought it controlled just fine.

Also, is this the appropriate time to point out you own 4 additional tables that I don't?
