    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.

    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...

    I think you're right about Pinbot. Journey to the sun is really hard, but it don't kick off a mode if and when you finally reach the sun. In my opinion I think it comes down to Banzai Run or...
