5 Insane Slot Machines We Want In Our Games Room

We all love Las Vegas. Whether we’ve been or not, we’re transfixed by the city. The shows, the fights, the bright neon lights, and of course the gambling which sees millions flock to the city every year to have a pull on their favorite one arm bandits. But what if the trip to Vegas wasn’t necessary? What if there was a slot-machine sized spot in your home to game the evening away? Well if there is, and you have a spare few hundred dollars, why not bring the casino to you? There are some insanely cool machines out there,...

Pinball Review: The Getaway

Fast-paced sequel to the 1986 game High Speed. Steve Ritchie basically took High Speed and juiced it up a bit. Year of Production: 1992 Production Run: 13,259 Notable Features: Supercharger — a magnetic ball accelerator. Collector Rating: B Getaway is not very expensive compared to many other games of its era, but is a fairly desirable game. Certainly not one you will have difficulty selling down the road. Player Rating: B Very fun game to play with the classic High Speed elements in place. The Supercharger is a fun toy and the rules are certainly deeper than High Speed. If only they had...

New Must Have Mod for your AC/DC Pinball

There are a lot of pinball machine mods out in the marketplace. Some are better than others. I think we can all agree that the best mods are those that feel as if they should have originally come with the game. This is a pretty high standard and most mods fail to meet this level. So it is cause for celebration when there is such a mod. We already sang the praises of the amazing AC/DC Premium pinball machine here recently. The machine is phenomenal out of the box, however there are a number of great mods to make...

Pinball Review: Cyclone

Kind of like a theme park wrapped up inside a box Year of Production: 1988 Production Run: 9,400 Notable Features: A mini Ferris wheel that carries the ball. Spinning backglass animation. Collector Rating: B Fairly popular game and certainly the most popular of the trilogy (Comet came first, then Cyclone, and Hurricane was the last). Player Rating: B Decent ball speed when cleaned and waxed. Single ball only, so lack of multiball reduces the appeal somewhat. Ramps are smooth and fun to hit, easy to repeat (which is kind of the idea of the game). Slightly below average amount of depth for a System...
