    It is always amazing how the power of affirmation can override any semblance of common sense
    Some people can handle it, some can't. Fact is I came 20 million shy of my personal best of 590 million last night (which was achieved sober) while drinking.

    so um... there goes your theory

      But as for lying upside down. Really?? I'm just too goddamn lazy to even bothering to do that. I got a couple coffee tables in front of my couch.. and an evil cat that likes to scratch anything that moves around "her" couch. Come play this at my place and try that shit with an evil cat trying to vie for your attention... and clawing at your face as you hang upside down from your couch :P

      It really isn't THAT hard to complete that mode upside down on the tv. Your flipper controls are well.. flipped. Even though the table is upside down... right = left and left = right. It's not all that terrible to beat that 1 mode with 1 ball.. it's just.. hard. Why bother doing that? My cat would claw my eyeballs out in a second if i did that. At least if I'm sitting upright I can kick that little bitch across the room

      With multiball it's pretty easy. Not 100% easy... but like i said earlier... 80% easier compared to just 1 single ball flying around on the table.
      Well, I don't have an evil cat to contend with, but I do have a wife and two kids that are an occasional distraction. Small price to pay though As far as the playing upside down goes, it just makes it easier for me. A lot easier. Before, I would only complete that mission about 20% of the time. Now that I've more or less mastered playing it upside down I finish it like 80% of the time. My ottoman is pretty big and comfortable. Do you want a pic of me playing upside down? LOL! The funny thing is my 5 year old son lays upside to watch me play it too, lol!

        Dark, I wish I had a day off to just drink & play. I f'd up during my 1.099 Billion game yesterday because my kid was nagging, nagging, NAGGING for half of it... I know what you mean though...you are on a roll, and then you lose like 3 or 4 balls in a row... SDTM is definitely this table's weak spot. I half to learn how to do the 'slap save' by reactively to be able to increase my score. Slap save is where you know it's going SDTM and you hit your flipper so that it will be straight out left-to-right (not all the way up) as the ball is there, and then nudge the table at the same time. I am 4th I think on ps3 atm.

        EDIT: 1.5 bill

          Alcoohol doesn't make high scores.
          Either going to church and pray (but that might have worked before sunday).

            FINALLY!!!

            after all this time, I finally have my 1+ billion score. Barely over a billion, but I'll take it... and I'll take 13th place overall for the effort. Sadly, the lowest of the billion scores on the tournament

              Gratz!!! I'm not even half way there. My best on the PSN is 418M and that's on the PSN. Of course I can't even see my scores because I can't seem to see any type of scoreboards for any of the tables for marvel.

                  Is there some sort of default filter like there is on the 360 while viewing scores? On the 360 it just shows your place/name until you hit x or y to switch from friends scores to worldwide scores.

                    I don't read long comments. I select the text then press a hotkey and my computer reads it to me while I do other things. DarkKodiaK's comments have been the best I've heard in a long time. Others that had be laughing were:

                    I sometimes intentionally drain my balls

                                I've been robbed!

                                I want to start by saying that his tournament was quirky from the get go.( No fault belongs to you, BarbieBobomb) That being said I had a great experience, even though my last and best score didn't count for the tournament. I started the game during it, but didn't finish in time I suppose. I started at 4:00p.m. and finished right at 8:00 PST, but my score of 1,437,101,676 only counted on the All-Time leader board and not for the tourney bonus. Still though I'm not that mad, just slightly disappointed. Just wanted to see if any one has had an experience like mine during any of the past tournaments or during this one. I still had #11 in the tourney with 1,160,401,807 but I should've #7. Thanks again Barbie because these tournaments make FX2 Pinball so addictive. I could really tell that everybody was playing the last few days, because no one was posting anything interesting.
