    I tried the free Tales of Arabian Nights table. Looked and sounded fantastic, but the lag was just enough that it was incredibly hard to play.

    That's wierd, since game runs smooth with my Xoom2 ME in 720p. And that tablet is half the speed of Terga 3 in gaming.

    That seems good.

    Trying it again, it seems the "lag" I was experiencing is just that the flippers are being controlled with the triggers, and don't respond until about halfway down. It's just enough to make you miss a shot you normally would have made. It would make a lot more sense if you used the shoulder buttons instead of the triggers. Strangely, in the Options menu you can select "Controls" but all it does is list the controls. It doesn't let you change them.

    This game is great but sometimes it get a little lag maybe is because of the console firmware, I experience lag on the menus also so this must be a firmware problem and the synchronization with the controller.

    The plunger stopped firing the ball? It goes back and I release and the ball sits there. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the game with no change.

    I found the lag on this to be so bad I couldn't get near playing it. Low latency is vital for pinball games.

    Well, there's been an update (as of 21 june) which seemed to get rid of the latency I noticed when I first tried the game--at least the vast majority of it, and this game has suddenly found itself being my favorite Ouya game. It's awesome. Anybody else playing it?

    I picked up Medieval Madness / Bride of Pinbot and I must have spent 3+ hours on them today.

    Sadly, my right analog trigger has some spring-related binding and every so often gets stuck. I really wish they'd provide the option of using the digital triggers.

    Hmm, I'll have to see if they fixed pinball launching system. On the pull back ones you had to pull back and flip the stick forward to get them to launch. No finesse with that. I also got the Medieval Madness pack. They had it on campus at the University I went to. Now I don't need quarters.
