So for Christmas my wife gave me a card that said its time for the next NIB pin. Here's where I am ....
Star Trek Premium (yes I have found one)
The Walking Dead Premium
Or wait for what sounds to be a very soon Spider-Man VE?
Pressures on !!!!!
I agree with Nevus. Three winners so you cannot make a bad choice. Take a family vote and you be the tie-breaker.
Quoted from TaylorVA:
I'd wait to see what GB and SMVE look like.
Agreed. If SM has comic art and updated code that would be pretty cool. Not sure I would put too much stock into GB but it is a fun theme. The next remake is also getting announced in March but not sure when they will actually ship. Supposed to be ready to go but people are still waiting on MM after preordering years ago.
Wow! Tough decision to be sure. I have SM and ST Pro. Both with shakers. ST Pro has refinery speaker kit and LED back panel with Aurich artwork. I played a Walking Dead LE and loved it. I've had SM for a long time and still gets alot of play. I absolutely love ST. Bought it with Tron and thought I would get tired of it, but 3 months in and I still love the game.
I lean towards Star Trek, but it's still very new to me. Really any one of those games is a win.
Be a hero and have a family vote. I don't think you can go wrong with any game on that list and getting the family excited about the purchase would be fun.
You can get ST Premium right now and it is a great family pin. (So this would be my choice)
Walking Dead is really not a family pin (for most families)
Spider-Man VE even after it is announced will be awhile before any ship.
So, since you can easily sell the ST Premium later and get Spider-Man. I say play pinball now and get Star Trek.
- Animations are not really family friendly. Make sure The Wife approves it before buying TWD.
- Star Trek is awesome but not truly complementary to ACDC.
- Spider-Man VE is cool but not available yet... and The Wife may have a different idea on how to use the money by then
If it's for you then TWD Prem/LE hands down, as stated above not so family friendly due to difficultly.
If it's for you and the family then GOT LE (why is it not an option?)
SM is a big pass for me, not into VE's.
ST don't have so wont comment (playing on location and have in a home lineup is very different)
Just my 2 cents
For family ST all the way and back again. My dad's favorite games play when he was in town for a week last week were ACDC and ST! My wife and son likes ST the best also. I go back and forth on acdc, ST and IM as my favorite pin.
One of the best all round themes and playability for anyone of any gender or age. Others are great also so it is up to you. Fyi- Your wife is awesome! A keeper!
Wow .... 146 polled so far and only a couple votes seperate 2 machines. This has been a great discussion with my family. We're defiantly leaning towards one machine over the other but like I've said we really appreciate all the feedback. When you're spending 6500k+ it's good to hear from others. Thanks again!
For the whole family? Walking dead and game of thrones have been the hottest shows on TV for years now! I would think those to be the best candidates. your kids would be bragging at school guaranteed. That being said dunno if they are kid appropriate content, but I've seen 6yr old boys wearing walking dead t-shirts so lol
168 votes! Thanks to everyone that has given input -- making the call to a distributor tomorrow morning to purchasing a new pin !! Our family is super excited !!!
Thanks KPG, we're very excited. Fish Tank Topper will be a must to add for sure.
