Ted if they aren't there maybe I can bring mine for freeplay... Full throttle that is. At least let you see and feel what awesome things Heighway is doing.

#4603 3 years ago

I wanna throw out a plug for Heighway to come to SFGE in Atlanta during June. If you come, I'll buy you at least a few shots.

Same here. Would love the chance to play Full Throttle as well as (fingers crossed) something resembling a complete Alien pin.

If that's the case, Jim, don't let yours take the abuse...

#4607 3 years ago

So, basically, everyone wants Heighway to come to every single show in the US in 2016.

What makes most sense would be to go to the shows that have a large population of pinheads that buy new pins.

It does every week. It's on location at the sanctum. Very popular. Holding up well besides some code bugs that should be addressed this week.

Come up some Monday night and party with us Ted

For those that might be looking to mod or add toys to their pin. These might have some potential:

Agree 100%! Here's a link to the badass new location/hotel SFGE will be held at this year. Please try to makes this happen Heighway. It's a first class expo from top to bottom. http://www.southernfriedgameroomexpo.com/hotel/

Has this been posted yet? I suspect I'll buy a few for the game's arrival.

We're super busy, I'm honestly not on Pinside much lately, just don't have the free time for it. Silence just means we're working more than chatting right now.

I'm sure they're busting a gut trying to get everything ready to show at TPF.

rumor has it Sigourney Weaver is only offering her likeness to 1 of up-coming pins. either Ghostbusters or Aliens...

you didn't hear it from me

I hope its GB's, would like Aliens to stay as generic as possible. Love the PF for this very reason, zero pictures of the cast.

And there it is... The quiet subtle faint of the genesis spark. Quoted lest we forget how the endless discussions were started as this will be argued and dialogued to fact before long, be it here or the other thread this was also posted to - just to incite another ill fated parlay. I love a good origin story.

Yes generic and lets change the name of it to "Space Creature Things" to make sure that it doesn't become and actual Aliens pinball.

If you license a product to build a pinball GET ALL THE DAMN CONTENT! I know easier said than done but I'm sick of half ass efforts to get a license and not including the full gambit of options with pictures/videos, music, voices from a movie/show **Cough cough*** TWD

Securing the actors likenesses has nothing to do with putting their images on the playfield, and EVERYTHING to do with having access to all the footage & sound clips from both films for the LCD display.

Andrew will do everything he can to make this possible.

Quoted from bemmett:

I promise you nothing about this game will be generic. We're infusing the films into everything we do. Every discussion we have is centered around being true to the films, this game is being built by real fans. I know seeing the playfield in a vacuum was tough, you have to imagine a lot of things you know nothing about. Wait until we can show the full package.

So no one needs to worry about playing a game that won't feel like Alien.

I know it's slow, we're making great progress, frankly the delays are mostly in the rear view mirror at this point I hope. Fall was tough, we really got held up waiting on things. We're no longer in wait mode.

Have you seen a populated playfield? Just curious on the process...

You missed the point completely, I'm not interested in corny one liners and pictures on the plastics/PF etc. Aliens for me is about the creature and the tension/thrill all that good stuff, I'll enjoy clips from the films, and sure some lines from the films too but they do not impact gameplay for me and really over time could become tedious, sometimes less is more, but I understand where you're coming from and hey I would be all over "Space Creature things" sounds great.

#4629 3 years ago

I just re-watched Aliens 1-4 and Prometheus.

Is the Space Jockey / Engineer a part of the game?

H3kO0_(resized).jpg

#4630 3 years ago

Yes it is!

I believe it is on the left outlane area.

#4631 3 years ago

Looking at the insert on the unpopulated playfield, looks like that left outlane toy may have been changed to the Nostromo's hypersleep chamber. Hopefully the space jockey will appear elsewhere...

You know...I didn't like it the first time I saw it in the theatre. At home in 3D...I'm warming up to it. Still, a lot of stupid shit there, but, not as bad as i first thought.

#4637 3 years ago
Quoted from spfxted:

I watched it again at home and it pissed me off even more
BUT I haven't seen the directors cut...is that what you watched? Because I heard that fills in a lot of stuff that the theatrical version didn't have.

#4638 3 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

I don't get the hate for it myself. Is it because it didn't live up to the hype? It couldn't have been worse than the last few Alien movies (AvP 1 and 2, Alien 4).

I was SOOOO disappointed with Prometheus. Sure, it looks great - but the script was total crap. Too many plot holes, and just totally unrealistic characters. It had some potential, but I blame that dude from Lost for screwing it up.

...back on topic - I'm very excited to see this pin at TPF (assuming it's still going).

I wouldn't call AVP Alien movies for me, just cheep horror/video game stuff. Alien 4 was horrendous no doubt.

As for the hype, well that was the original issue as they tried to anti hype it at first which rubbed people the wrong way.
The whole thing was a mess to be honest. Wasn't cohesive in the least, felt like large gaps were missing, incomplete characters that do and say nothing THE ENTIRE movie, or turn in to zombies for a second. Weird daddy issues that lead to an hugely dramatic moment when you find out SPOILERS that Weyland Smithers was her dad that everyone figured out in the first 8 minutes...etc etc. All culminating in the "turn left dummy" finale`....just a disaster.
IMO anyway, we all like diff'rent things.

EDIT: I mean it reeked of Lindelof, and not Scott; sad.

I don't want to get all Democratic, but Prometheus had the best abortion scene ever put to film.

The entire thing was an abortion, that was just the 2nd best part of it. I wonder what the level of dislike for this flick would be if it didn't have David in it. I mean that's the one real saving grace of the movie.

I liked Prometheus, it was a cool movie when you take into consideration the crap that is mostly put out these days. I thought the special FX were cool and the story wasn't bad. What exactly is the complaint most people had with it?

. What exactly is the complaint most people had with it?

Some people don't get impressed by movies that simply don't suck as bad as other movies. Also, good special effects don't mean anything....I only notice bad ones these days
