Don't make me laugh, that Nintendo-style pinball was never good for more than a minor distraction. Pro Pinball completely trounced it.

Are you completely mad?! Seriously?

Ok, whatever floats your rubber ducky...I'll stick with my Epic, thank you...

That's actually a cool read...especially the comments by ol' Danny Thorpe (Maxis) who, as previously said, made it originally as Full Tilt. Wow. Am I getting old or frakin' what?! Best PC pinball ever made? No contest - Epic Pinball for DOS...'EPIC' indeed...

Interesting that MS the largest developer on the planet would outsource a cheap ass pinball game to an external development.. it would take what? 1 coder, 1 artist and 1 sound guy to make this game. And they outsourced it? Wtf....

It was just a single table from Full Tilt Pinball. Not sure why they chose it, but if you owned Full Tilt you'd played it before.

Amusingly enough Microsoft still hadn't ported Solitaire to ARM last time I checked out a Surface. It's hilarious how much that annoys people too.

Just looked, it and Mahjong came out 6 days ago.

Pretty crazy. You'd think that would have been a given.
