A FarSight pinball for the new year

Just before Christmas FarSight released a new table. Having been caught up with the holidays I have not been able to report on this before the end of 2017 and thus I will begin the 2018 posts with it. 

Pistol Poker is a table from the 90s: 

Curiously, it corresponds to one of the smallest sales of physical tables with only 200 unit produced. Having played it I can understand the lack of interest. There are games that I like at first sight and others which I come to appreciate after having played a few games. However, I could not relate to Pistol Poker even after having tried it on two different iPads. I do not find the gameplay sufficiently interesting and the ball that drains all too easily is making things worse. It's not the best pinball to start the year with but on the other hand we should not be too picky: if FarSight stops producing new pinballs we will be left with zilch. 


  1. Noticed that you have Pro Pinball BRUSA as your blog header. Am I missing something important...?

  2. No. It just happens that BRUSA is number 1 in my top-ten list of pinballs
    (published here: http://macpinballhistory.blogspot.gr/2012/10/best-digital-pinballs.html). So it was my natural choice for the blog header.

  3. It see3ms farsight is no longer supplying updates to some people, and it appears to have stopped in september. It is happening on both steam and app store versions, and both the other person and I are on MacOS 10.11.6. His copy is through the app store, and mine is steam, and neither of us have seen any updates since september. Have you heard of this happening to others? I can't believe they would dare change system requirements mid season, and surely El Capitan isn't obsolete, or is it? I will never move to high sierra for a lot of different reasons.., and I am unable to download sierra as I didn't catch it in time....
