Spotted: Comet pinball at new El Camino restaurant, at Elgin and Gladstone.
Not adding to list because I didn't get to play it, only accessible during dinner service.

It is there! I finally got a chance to play it last night. I was really looking forward to playing this title but I must say it left me a little uninspired. Ever since the playfield was revealed I was concerned with the open layout. I only had time to play 4 games but there just didn't seem like there was much to do. I know, most games have to be enjoyed before they really grow on you. I was less than inspired by TRON for months until one fell in my lap and I bought one - now I love it. TZ, the Shadow were the same way.

My 1st thoughts are that MET just has too much openess to make it long term enjoyable. Other impressions: the callouts are also a little annoying and the music just does not seem integrated with the game (unlike in ACDC). I am not sure I could continually listen to Tallica the same way I could ACDC, I was thinking that this one might eventually make it into my colelction but now I am not so sure. At least I only live 5 minutes from the Colliseum so I can go play it.

The game also had a lot of air balls off the slings and the ball making weird movements. Some surface parts were knocked loose from the many airballs.

Perhaps if I was a big MET fan it might resonate more with me.

On the plus side, I really dig the art-work (much better than photoshop). Definately going to get some more playtime on it.

I also hate the new Cineplex "XScape" entertainment system. No more coins, just a stupid card - so now you pay taxes (a $10.00 card costs $11.30 but they give you $12 in credits) and can be much more sneaky about raising the price of a game. And now you can win tickets (err points) and trade em for "Made in China" crap. Almost the entire arcade lineup has been replaced by quasi-redemption crap. SIGH - take me back to the 80's! :-)
Pinball Rocks!

If you were the individual that added the Dolly Parton in Cornwall, could you provide some more information on the location, as there appears to be no "Marloborough Coin Wash" or different spelling derivatives to that name listed in Cornwall.

Presumably its on Marlborough St?

I played Avengers at Coliseum tonight!!!
Sadly, it is soooo messed up. I can let pass when things are a bit wonky, but the ball would just end randomly. the ball is in play and suddenly the flippers die and bonus is counted. grrrrr

there is SO MUCH flakiness on The Avengers! Is this a normal thing, or an exemplary poor individual example they have there?
But all that aside, I really really like The Avengers. I really want to play a very much "dialed in" one. It feels like Iron Man, but with as many fun shots and ramps as X-Men.


Metallica is playing wonderfully, but as it sits the game has no longevity. It's all just pounding away at one shot over and over. do that thing, move on to the next shot to pound. What do the songs do? AC/DC told me with lights. With Metallica I feel like it's just selecting background music,
The ramps are SO GOOD on Metallica. I can't wait for the next few code updates. Someone poke me if it gets updated and is more exciting. :)

Noooooooo Cait, Avengers is not normally a flaky pin.

Played The Loafers @ the last OPL event...STELLAR!

Please post updated info on The Canadian Public Pinball Tracker listing it's problems.

I really REALLY wish they'd fix this PHENOMENAL pin!

Canadian Public Pinball Tracker...
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... full#gid=3

C'mon folks, she's gettin' outta date!

Remember, for location pins, this spreadsheet is great for both players AND operators.

It provides (unlike Pinside) a nice consolidated / condensed list of all location pins in Canada.

Players can save on wasted travel time by not going to play, arriving and finding an out of order pin.

Operators can review the tracker to see if a pin is broken and not generating revenue.

Please insert your updated info soonest, including the date you played the pin (very important).
