    I played Ghostbusters in real life last weekend and got the witch scream. Zmcvay was right - OMG is it loud! Everyone around me heard it over their machines and stopped and stared at me and the...
  2. What’s the magna-save button on the keyboard?

    Seeing the “fire button” question for AC/DC and ST:TNG reminded me of a similar issue: what’s the Magna-Save button for Black Knight and World Cup Soccer? I have hit it randomly by mashing the...

    I always heard it was “petroleum based.” I tried it years ago. Ate the whole piece of toast it was spread upon, but ... definitely an acquired taste.

    Agree with Pete. This one is great at starting conversations with Primus fans, but gameplay is non-existent. Usually one ball per game is a guaranteed drain with no chance to use flippers. It’s...

    Played it recently. I’d say it’s among my current favorites. Herman Multiball was my pathway to better scores. Grampa’s Lab can get a little tough with that pea-size pinball. I had beginner’s luck...

    I played it today for the first time. Had the upper playfield. I enjoyed it. Fast yet controllable. Captured the old school Black Knight “feel” but still original in its own right. It’s like Black...

    Cidercade is a great place. I was hoping to visit the Texas Pinball Museum in Midlothian about 30 minutes away, it has roughly 40 machines. But the place closed indefinitely earlier this month. A...

    I played KISS today at Cidercade in Dallas. $10 buys you a day pass to a dozen or so pins and the rest of the arcade. When I arrived one of the attendants was working on KISS. I played it as soon as...

    Get a Big Lebowski pin in it and I’ll come running. ;)

    Every successful arcade nowadays seems to keep the doors open by seving alcohol. The Cidercade in Dallas is a good example. Most pins are in...

    Amen. Dick Tracy was SO overhyped that summer. The fact that Madonna was in the movie clinched my decision to avoid watching it until it came out on video. ;)

    I own two of the Shalhoub Compendiums and can recommend them both. 70-81 is nice and a fairly orderly presentation of the pins. There were a couple of surprising omissions - I want to say Flight 2000...

    Grandpa scoop and the “stairway”-looking ramp remind me a little bit of Addams Family. But I agree it really looks most similar to Monster Bash.

    Coincidence? Hmmm...

    MM remake is harder than the original. The slingshots on the remake feel like they are set on hair-trigger. Expect to lose a lot of balls to the outlines. The color DMD is pretty, though.

    Does Zen really think their target demographic for pinball is 10-16 year old kids? I would bet the overwhelming majority of sales - including Zen's original content - are consumers over 17. So why...
