Really not a fan of pinball video games, but after watching this I might try it out for myself to see just how it plays. The game can easily be a good time filler.
 
Nice Quick Look Jeff and Ryan!

Take that Brendan Sinclair. You are not the best Blade and Wolverine pinball player.

I'm super excited for these tables even though it made for a boring QL. Seriously, Jeff should not be playing for Pinball Quick Looks. He takes too long to lose!

Jeff is right.  The first Blade movie is really good.
Also really good.  Blade 2.
Not good at all.  Blade Trinity.

Even Ryan Reynolds couldn't save it. 
 
Before even watching this, I predict Brendan Sinclair will be on at least one of the leaderboards.

I believe he is employing the:
1. Stop thinking
2. Start typing
 
strategy.
 
^^^ Also yes, jesus christ, pinball - why the hell are all of you acting like this is tiddlywinks.  Pinball is like the elder statesman of video games and at least with video pinball they're using modern day tech to augment the experience. I'm tempted to pull out the "you kids today" card, but I give the youth more credit than this instant dismissiveness.

Could be the ala carte style of the pricing model, IE, free front end and then you pay for the tables/games you want. To be fair, he didn't come up with the comparison; the term "Its kinda like Game Room" has been used a few times by various Giant Bomb staff members, and I think whomever did the past PBFX2 Quick Look with Jeff asked explicitly if he was planning on buying all the tables for it. 
 
My confusion, really, is people raging at content being added to the site, especially in these dead weeks between the end of November and the GotY week. Beggers can't be choosers, but then again, the internet makes everyone bitches.

More like seriously fun!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
Really, though, his game is also about 100x more fun to play in person than it is to watch someone else play, especially if you don't have even a passing interest in pinball. I highly suggest everyone at least try the demo for Pinball FX 2; it costs nothing but time. And Quick Looks involving something that is potentially boring to watch should have the whole peanut gallery in there to make things more interesting.

I'd just like to say that Blade Trinity would be awesome if it was just a buddy movie with Ryan Reynolds and HHH.
