    In both games, I think drop catches are harder than in reality. They're doable, but fail often enough that I've given up. Drop catches on real tables rarely fail; they're that easy to do. Live...

    Must have a super-difficult airball ramp shot that flies over a car and upon completion triggers Biff yelling, "Manure?!"

    Also must have the line "You are my density" incorporated somewhere,...

    While I don't want to debate the ethics or economics of copyright law, I have to say that I disagree with you. The estate is run by members of his family, whom I would think have more of an interest...

    The rights to the works of Tolkien are owned by his estate, so the executor of the estate must approve any derivative works. I think the estate have become more protective of rights after some quite...

    Those machines are just in bad shape. It can be hard to find well maintained machines, but when one does, there's just no comparison between real and digital pinball. Maybe check some of the online...

    Um, a good pin doesn't need any ramps at all.

    I appreciate a lot of the modern design, as a lot of DMD and later SS pins are pretty ramp heavy, but playing earlier SS and EM tables can be...

    Avengers!

    Stern just announced its new Avengers table. Pictures of the layout are available on the web.

    To be honest, I was a little disappointed with X-Men, because the gameplay hinges completely on being...

    If you're having a problem with the ball not going all of the way up the ramp, you need to work on shot accuracy. Usually, when this occurs the ball is deflected off of the side of the ramp, losing...

    Twilight Zone is already under development for PS3 by Farsight. Most of the real-world tables by Williams and Bally have already been sold, but there are other licensing issues that pose problems. It...

    I voted for Pinball Arcade, because I prefer the design of real pinball machines over the Zen designs. That said, they're both excellent games. Zen is more stable and has fewer bugs. The new physics...

    I don't have any wizard mode stories about Zen, since I can't seem to get to any. However, the day that Dark Knight Rises released, I was playing a couple of games of Iron Man before heading inside....
  12. to the OP

    Sit farther away from your television. It's free anti-aliasing. No. I'm not joking.

    Trying to make comparisons to Hollywood special effects is also absurd. Hollywood gets to run frame-by-frame...

    You're really hung up on anti-aliasing as if it somehow is the single defining element of graphics quality. It isn't. If you code graphics (which you appear to imply) or talk to devs, then you really...

    Are you sure you don't mean a live catch? Because a drop catch is pretty easy to do in PFX2. I've never been able to reliably live catch in digital pinball in the same manner as I do on a real pin...

    Tomorrow I'm hitting one of the Stern launch parties, so the game of the day will be X-Men. Maybe I'll actually qualify! (Yeah right, the couple of games I've played on that pin, I couldn't even get...

    Success!

    Ironically, earlier today I got another "reply" from the Microsoft escalation rep indicating that there is no ETA for when the import detection problem will be resolved.

    However, I came here and...

    I usually play on the PS3, since I own all of the tables there (have PBFX2 but no Marvel tables).

    On the PS3, both R1/L1 and R2/L2 are pressure sensitive. On the 360, I definitely use RB/LB....
