Long time, no see.
I've actually been quite busy on a PS3 system since I purchased one last July, and the one game that I've been enjoying consistently on it is FarSight Studios' The Pinball Arcade
. I actually quite admired FS' Williams and Gottlieb compilations on the PS2 and GameCube in the past, and Pinball Arcade
is a true evolution of the company's pinball emulation to heightened levels. My favorite available table is FunHouse
(Williams, 1990), which features a talking ventriloquist named Rudy that not only taunts and lauds the player, but also "watches" the ball roll around the table. I never played FunHouse
in the wild, but after countless hours playing it in virtual form, there are several neat touches that I have nothing but respect and appreciation for.
