Quoted from Phat_Jay:

Too many machines with bad coils, warped playfields, and other issues.

I actually don't mind that very much. You just have to look at it the right way. I'm happy for all of the games that come.

Thanks for all the great photos... hope you get some shut-eye on the flight home! Seemed like all the big vendors were there but I'm curious how you think a small-scale vendor like me would do at the show. Any thoughts?

Probably similar to tpf, but less attendees, so some smaller % factor of sales.
Everyone loves your product.

Then maybe, just maybe, I could convince the ol lady to come

Also, did someone post about the specific bands/songs played at the stern party (hint hint) ?

This was a hidden Gem. Glad it was there.

Thanks, unrortunately it looks as though the screens had crashed when that picture was taken . I was trying to make sure the game was working for most of its time there but it appears I missed this malfunction for a little while ,sorry .

Ok, now that the whole contest thing is done...

Here's my Batman Super LE pinball video submission:

What do y'all think?
Could definitely make improvements...

Think it only works in US and Canada.

#776 3 years ago

If you don't deserve a batman then no one does. Great job on everything broseph!

#777 3 years ago

Looks like a winner to me -- you win the right to open your wallet and have Stern remove $15K As much as I love the theme of this game, for that money I would rather pay some hardcore folks in this community to help me retheme an existing game and add LCDs to play clips from the bluray collection. The Stern/Kapow art assets have the right feeling, but the use of all that art on the machine seems a bit too much like a splat/random circus explosion (let's call it an SRCE). Would have preferred a little more thought and nuance put into, but I get this was a rush job (sadly).

Here's a shout out tot he Buffy retheme team! That's how you do it right, and it's exquisite. I would like a Swords of Fury game, but would be much happier with that Buffy version...

Great job. And thanks for the thread. I followed it all weekend. I may have drank different beer, but I was there in spirit.

Thanks

Yeah, don't think I've entered a blind contest before where you don't know exactly what you're going for. Figured, what the heck and did it just in time. It was fun to do.

Sinbad is a great game, heathen!

Hell yes. Bastard didn't bring it until Friday night, I kept checking for it.

#799 3 years ago

Total Annihilation was one of my show favorites. I'm looking forward to see how it progresses. Gameplay was great and the sound track rocked.

Total Annihilation was one of my show favorites. I'm looking forward to see how it progresses. Gameplay was great and the sound track rocked.

One of the best parts was watching people play the game ,or play in groups and watching people bob their heads or kind of dance while playing .At some point I had to bust out the worm .
