Quoted from HighProtein:

I just got this flyer in the mail with my latest Pinball Life parts order...

Looks like he's going to strangle someone lol.

#152 3 years ago

There will be finished and playable Houdini's in Texas tomorrow.

#153 3 years ago
Quoted from lllvjr:

Jpop has zero to do with the new Houdini

well, except for the original idea, theme, and fact that he is tied to the whole thing from the start.

I get that they are trying to distance themselves fomr Jpop, but without him Houdini never exists, period.

ยป YouTube video

Correct, looks nothing like it.

Quoted from vdojaq:

please please please keep the escaping milk pop bumpers and real quickstep solenoids!!! Just get rid of all the stupid Zs and we should be all good.

TPF is indeed shaping up to be a doozy! Which I could have hung around Texas for another weekend to check this out.

I think you mean without AP, Houdini and MG never exist, period.

#164 3 years ago

a lot of negativity here. This game looks fun.

Quoted from GreenMachine19:

The actual game doesn't look like what's been shown so far. That layout was a JPOP design, untested. They started over with Balcer and a new artist after deciding to completely disassociate from JPOP.

Honey for our Anniversary I am flying us out to Texas....yeah nevermind it won't work...lol

#171 3 years ago

I hear they are dropping it into a lake and the reveal happens when the machine escapes its shrink-wrapped tomb and emerges from the water..

A pinball in a trash bag? Is that a Ghostbusters?

Have fun at TPF!! And well wishes to AP for a successful reveal.

Someone pick me up a flyer.

#175 3 years ago

Hi,

I can't wait for first impressions.
Thanks

#180 3 years ago

Quoted from pinlink:

He doesn't know anything that you and I don't. Just wants to feel cool by making it seem that way I guess . No one knows anything for certain.

Eat it!

#186 3 years ago

could be a lot of fun but the side panels on the backbox.... hmmm, i don't know.

#187 3 years ago

The game has a real backglass. Very cool!

#188 3 years ago

Backglass looks nice! Love the colors. From what I can make out, I like the gritty weathered look of the cabinet art. Can't wait to see some playfield pics and gameplay footage to see how it shoots.

-Doug

No one has played it yet it's a turd? Come on man, that shit doesn't belong on pinside

#190 3 years ago

Introductory price will be $6995.

#191 3 years ago

I didn't mean that the game was a turd, I think it looks great! What I mean is if the layout sucks and the gameplay blows, no amount of beautiful art can cover up the fact that it's a crap game.

To me, it looks promising!

#192 3 years ago

Waiting for some close ups of the BG... But, wait... I think I trust what I see from the grainy pics so far...
My money's on: We were not trolled.
Photoshopped clip art on an unlicensed theme -- hey, that's one way to make your mark on pinball history!
(finger's crossed they hired an artist for the PF)

#193 3 years ago

If this is a finished playable machine, it's quite the achievement. Well done AP!

#194 3 years ago

Code is 20% complete reported on other thread.

#195 3 years ago

It's a good time to be in pinball again..

#196 3 years ago

Looks really cool! What is up with the chain on the right ramp?

#200 3 years ago

Looks nice, can't wait to see some gameplay video.
