Oh yeah... Pong.... I remember this one.... a friend of mine had it but I just couldn't dig it... I'd rather go to the arcade play some EM's....
Quoted from accidental:
Anyone who thought Alien Day was a real holiday and needed to be told it was created for marketing purposes has to be a moron, right? And it's not as if real holidays are any better when it comes to exploitation by marketers.
Wait.... So you're saying that I'll have to go to work today???
I don't doubt Heighway's pinball will be awesome, but those Zen Pinball Alien games kick serious asses! Loved it to DETH!

Ok, I know.... Let's do it just like when someone comes with an idea to make an awesome mod for a determined machine, and everyone keeps posting "I'm interested", or "put me in the list"....
Now, that's annoying!!!!
So, let's hear from you... who's in for an Heighway Aliens Pinball Machine?
Could you guys stop talking about fox and video licensing and please get back on-topic? It's get annoying already!
It was never proved that the Creature from the Black Lagoon was an alien or not, but boy, I wish I didn't follow this thread:
Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:
How about we lock this thread up...Andrew has walked away for months in terms of showing anything substantial. Nothing good will come about here as the trajectory is clearly crash and burn territory.
Let Heighway start a new one, clean slate in August where he gives truthful updates and realistic timelines.
Easy, just drain it and don't come back anymore!
hahahaha..... so much drama for all you kaneda disciples.... it's a pity you all cannot have some fun while the wait.... seriously, what harm can do? Just don't check the thread until august if you are a sad grumpy person..... or maybe you can cry to the mods...... come on people, cheer up a bit!
....waiting for the first sad grumpy pinsider to complain about gettin' off-topic (again)!
I'm still to know an average under 40 person who buys pinball machines!
Well, one thing I know for sure.... she'll look MUCH better than sigourney weaver!
Quoted from Purpledrilmonkey:
Perused the entirety of the last few pages looking for the exciting Alien news...
Quoted from Jvspin:
And now you've just contributed to duping the next guy........and so have I.
Quoted from rubberducks:
Yeah, I'm out. Draining it. It's a total waste of time.
Quoted from accidental:
Agreed. As soon as there is anything to see I'll find it reported/shared elsewhere.
Wow, missed this post.... glad I was messing around in this thread and found it...
Well, to answer your question, I LOVE all my pins... and the X-Files, besides the great theme and wonderful music, yes, has a very nice game indeed that I truly enjoy! But that's my personal taste, I don't expect you to have the same taste for pins that I do, au contraire...
But... looking at YOUR collection, I do think you got some really bad games IMO... though I don't feel the need to put you down by writing bad things about'em... as long as I'm concerned, you can shove'em all up yours...
Quoted from TheLaw:
To fill people in, my post was in response to ....
which could be the dumbest statement I've ever heard on pinside....think aboot that for a second.
Quoted from TheLaw:
Finally this thread is getting good. I knew we needed more meow meows!
This is turning into a good looking pussy thread so maybe. Meow!
Quoted from vid1900:
Actually, it was exactly the opposite of who contacted who at who's place of employment.
You might want to get your facts straight before posting.
"Thanks for bringing the facts straight! Rumours are a bitch!"
Edited post: heh..... I just heard exactly your opposite, so.... until I hear from both sides, I'd say again... rumours are a "beatch"!
Quoted from Rarehero:
That's the rub. There are no issues "between" them. Aurich has had Chris on ignore forever and doesn't speak to him or about him....yet Chris continues to basically stalk, slander and cyberbully him REPEATEDLY. It's a one-sided conversation. It's some Fight Club Tyler Durden type shit. Chris gets so upset because Aurich doesn't give him what he thrives on....ATTENTION. The lack of response is driving him INSANE. He threatens physical violence in his latest rantcast. Chris is doing this to himself. It's drama of his own creation, and it's really sad, honestly.
I'd just like to know if that shit about A getting to K's boss is true or not....
Quoted from EchoVictor:
Here's an early mockup with the chamber;
Once it goes into one of the two open slots, I think it has to rotate to allow the ball to roll down into the center drain hole...
Though I don't like the idea of nudging (some tend to go way over the line), I really enjoy this concept!
Given the posts above by pinballrulez I can only imagine the super-coolness of this Aliens Pinball Machine!!!!
Quoted from jonesjb:
I was thinking Ghostbusters was going to be my next pin, but perhaps my money will be going to an Alien.
Quoted from Stones:
GB is on the backburner until I see the unveil on this. The pf has just a dark eerie look.....and I cant wait to see it populated.
On the TAF club thread, there are reports of 2 guys that gave up on GB in order to acquire a TAF.... Giving all the lately GB hype, I guess not everyone (including myself), are jumping on this bandwagon....
Quoted from Aurich:
I love Newt, she's a huge part of Aliens, the relationship between her and Ripley is part of what makes the film work so well. I'm stoked that we're trying to integrate her into the game more personally.
If anyone tries to tell me that the the they come out at night mostly line isn't a famous Aliens quotable I'm gonna laugh at them!
Quoted from jlm33:
OK everyone, this is a friendly reminder before thread ejects written in English, Portuguese or French
This is an *official* ALIEN PINBALL thread. Please remember it.
That's great... Meanwhile, I got a suggestion for another reason as of reporting abusive posts: PREJUDICE!
But what all those video shooters gotta pay attention is to correctly level their pins.... in that GB video the machine is clearly leaned to the left (and it fuckin drives me crazy!!!)
Quoted from Sticky:
I didn't realize my opinion on art required design team approval.
Your comment exemplifies that you are too sensitive and maybe need to find a new hobby as this one might give you a heart attack.
I don't think the playfield art is all that good and I'm not the only one. I like what I see in what I quoted.
Oh no! Someone likes some other art better! It's not just everyone holding hands and singing Kumbaya until their Alien arrives!
Dude, the vast majority of the pinsiders are way overly sensitive.... especially the sissy woz owners....
PS: here comes the downvotes!!!
Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:
You light them by having balls locked in the Hypersleep chamber. One ball = one REVIVE lights alternately, two balls = both REVIVES are lit. One ball is ejected from the Hypersleep when the ball in play drains through a lit REVIVE, then the LOCK has to be lit again.
Quoted from aeonblack:
I think you all need
Expect that you're going to get some stickers and whatnot, and if you get more than that you can get pumped.
I've been following this thread for quite some time now, and one thing people here DON'T have is low expectations!!!
Sometimes I even pity the Heighway crew for every minor fault this pin may present when launched...
Quoted from Aurich:
I'd say Stern has lost their goddamn minds, but people are apparently happy to line up and pay those prices.
If Andrew's not an idiot he's going to raise his prices too. Why not? The frog is perfectly happy in the bubbling water.
This is me just talking personally, I have zero insight into Alien prices or plans. And I'm not trying to push anyone into pre-ordering just to lock in a price point. But if the street price on the base Batman 66 game is around $7700 and people are opening their wallets? Andrew would be a fool to leave money on the table he could use to grow his company.
Expect a price increase, that's my prediction. Up up up, that's the trend.
I'd say people who are apparently happy to line up and pay those prices have lost their goddamn minds.
