    No one really takes the top rollover skill shot on MM anyway. Hold down left flipper when launching for the proper skill shot. Ball goes round the left orbit, then make any ramp/orbit and it lights the castle for a 1M countdown.

    Haha. There are exactly three WNBJM tables in the UK, one of which belongs to my mate. Was not a big seller.

    Wikipedia list looks accurate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pinball_Arcade (Greyed out rows are tables that are no longer available, unless you bought before the cut-off period)

    Pinball FX has the Bally/Williams licence now, so very likely more will be coming there. Pinball Arcade still has licencing with Stern (/Sega/Data East), Gottlieb and a few other smaller (ex) manufacturers

    Shameless plug, apologies, but... @Naieve (and anyone else that visits the UK shows to play some real pinball) - I'd strongly recommend following Northern Lights Pinball on Facebook for news on when the shows occur, and discount ticket prices : https://www.facebook.com/NLPinball Blackpool is the next Play Expo show, and you can find discounted tickets via that link above. We're a non-profit, and ticket sales via our site help our charity fundraising.

    PM sent. Offer is open to anyone though - send a PM this way if you're a pinball fan and interested in helping our charity donation by purchasing discount tickets to Play Expo Or you could follow our Facebook page which frequently has good info on pinball events around the UK: https://www.facebook.com/NLPinball/

    If you're coming to the play expo shows for the pinball machines, then drop me a pm. I usually have a limited number of discount tickets, which we sell to help raise funds for charity. Same as the tickets you'll get from the official source (that allow early access to the show) but with the bonus karma that you're donating to charity (and saving a few quid) As mentioned above, some shuffling around of venues this year.. The big Manchester show is cancelled and we're doing a show in Blackpool instead. Next year we'll be returning to Manchester, but moving to the gmex (or whatever is called now) and rescheduled to the May Bank Holiday weekend. I'll be wearing a Northern Lights Pinball Crew top if you want to say hi
  8. A new event for any fellow pinball fans taking place over the bank holiday weekend in August - Sat 25th & Sun 26th at Daventry (near Northampton) Should be close to, if not over, 100 pinball machines, all on freeplay. All the 80s and 90s classics, and a few of the very new games since pinball's recent resurgence - including a couple of exclusive appearances such as 'Kill Bill' and 'Thunderbirds' The venue is at a posh hotel too, so the other half can spend all day in the pool or spa whilst serious gaming occurs (There is a really good discounted room rate available). All the details: www.ukpinfest.com

    NERG 2018: 14th & 15th July

    80's was the highpoint of the video arcade though surely? By the 90s (certainly mid 90s) it was pretty much dying down. What kind of games are you thinking of specifically? James 'RGP' who runs the video arcade is very open to suggestions on what he brings to the shows so I'm sure would love to hear what people want to see next year. I was mainly lurking around the pinballs though, and barely had time to play anything in fairness. Was there for setup Friday, but had to leave early Sunday. NERG is a superb event that is well worth travelling for. Play games all day, and explore the pubs of Newcastle at night. Ideal spot for a rllmuk meet.

    Pinball Arcade have lost the licence to the Williams/Bally tables.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    "The Defiant Ones" follows the converging paths of Dr Dre and producer Jimmy Iovine I don't particularly know why I started watching this. I have no interest at all in rap music, and had never heard of Jimmy Iovine... But it's absolutely fabulous stuff. Genuinely interesting stories that are really well told. Loads of short interviews with music legends that they crossed paths with, and simply brilliant editing. Best thing I've watched in ages. You should stop what you're doing and watch this. Highly recommended

    LG? You can definitely disable that smooth motion thing, even in 4k. Agree it's a bit daft that it's enabled by default though.

    Star Trek Discovery

    It's a shame they never figured out what to do with that robot person. They had like three lines in the whole series Thought some of the set design in the last episode was just brilliant. Seemed like they splurged whatever was left in the budget all at once. Shame the dialogue and story in general wasn't as convincing. "The only way to defeat fear is to tell it no." Staggering.

    playexpo Blackpool - questions

    Yeah the Blackpool event I have a bit of a soft spot for as it's where we (Northern Lights Pinball) first got involved with retro gaming events. It's a great venue with quiet areas for the interviews with developers and industry people, and a couple of much larger rooms for traders, consoles and arcade cabs. If you like retro gaming you can easily kill the two days between listening to the interviews, having a pint and playing some games. And if for some reason you get bored in there... you're in Blackpool, where there are crap loads of touristy things just a short tram ride away.
