Place Your Bets For The First Bleeding Cool Pinball Challange At Star Wars Celebration

Place Your Bets For The First Bleeding Cool Pinball Challange At Star Wars Celebration

After weeks of friendly trash-talking between Bleeding Cool writers Jeremy "Big Ohio" Konrad and Lauren "Baltimore" Sisselman over various social media accounts (as well as behind the scenes), the editors told them to put their bantering to the test since they'll both be on assignment at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando from April 13th – […]

Its Bigger On The Inside: Dr. Who Pinball By Bally

It's Bigger On The Inside: Dr. Who Pinball By Bally

Most of you reading this are aware of Dr. Who. While I'm not a big Dr. Who fan (I've seen maybe a handful of episodes), I am a big pinball fan. Bally released this game into the wild in 1992, long after Dr. Who's initial TV debut, and long before a new generation of Whovians […]

Arcade Chaser: Kickback Pinball Cafe

Arcade Chaser: Kickback Pinball Cafe

Arcades at one point were an American past time. For a while they went out of style, being replaced with things like Dave and Busters and other all ages gambling places. But now there's been a renaissance going on where people (usually 30 something year olds) are opening up arcades, be they mixed with a […]

Magneto Wants Your Balls: X-Men Pinball

Magneto Wants Your Balls: X-Men Pinball

Comics and pinball have been in bed with each other since the 70's. The original Superman, Hulk and Spider-Man machines prove that. So it's no surprise that X-Men would get the pinball treatment. Created by Stern and designed by John Borg in 2012, X-Men offers both a pro and two types of LE: Magneto and […]

Lauren Looks Back: Stern Pinball

Lauren Looks Back: Stern Pinball

As we are all aware, Stern is currently top dog in the world of modern Pinball. With games such as Ghostbusters, Tron, and Spider-Man, it's no surprise. Since 2006 Stern has dominated Pinball, but Stern didn't start in 2006. Their history goes back a little further. Sam Stern started with pinball in the 1930's as […]

Finding Carl &#8211 The Walking Dead Pinball Machine

Finding Carl – The Walking Dead Pinball Machine

  It's safe to say I'm not the biggest fan of The Walking Dead. I read the first graphic novel and I've seen a handful of episodes, but it never really grabbed me. All that aside I did play this machine with an open mind. Stern released the machine in 2014 with a pro, LE […]

I Am The Law: Judge Dredd Pinball

I Am The Law: Judge Dredd Pinball

To be honest with everyone, I wasn't aware there was a Judge Dredd pinball. I enjoy the comic, and I loved the Karl Urban movie. So it would only make sense that I would be drawn to this game as well. Made by Midway Manufacturing (Bally) in 1993 (so therefor it is not based on […]

Pinup Girls With Arrows: Lady Robin Hood Pinball

Pinup Girls With Arrows: Lady Robin Hood Pinball

Lady Robin Hood is a beautiful example of an early modern pinball machine. While this machine is a game of skill due to the three sets of flippers, there is still more chance than skill to this game. Gottlieb released Lady Robin Hood in 1948, but at a show in 1949 they presented two other […]

The Shadow Knows: The Shadow Pinball

The Shadow Knows: The Shadow Pinball

Does anyone remember the 1994 movie The Shadow based on the 1930's pulp character? The movie was terrible even though Alec Baldwin was playing the titular lead. Well in 1995, Bally still released a pinball machine based on the movie. To be fair the machine isn't terrible. It's an innovative game, allowing the player to […]

Drac Attack Monster Bash Pinball

Drac Attack! Monster Bash Pinball

Finally, I can do an article on my favorite pinball machine of all time. While I am fond of many, nothing has captured my heart more than Monster Bash released by Williams in 1998. I'm a huge fan of the Universal Monsters (especially The Creature), and overall this game is just great fun. I also […]
