I though ghostbusters would be amazing the. I played it and was very underwhelmed and disappointed. Same goes for dialed in the toys on that game are very blah; like the hobbit much better. To me batman 66 looks promising and the center turntable looks great but wouldn't be able to tell till I play it. There is no way you can judge the game from this one video

#60 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

TWDLE got no love straight out of the box except by me
Now it's a masterpiece.
BM66 will be another masterpiece. I figured that out based on the video

I agree 100% LYMAN on code is king just look at his record and he loves the theme and is getting a game; I believe in LYMAN

#71 2 years ago

Yeah the code is not great and very boring and the physics of the game are just way off and way too many air balls and yes I have played one with all the fixes and it still is not fun sorry just my opinion I don't love every title anymore have to play first

#101 2 years ago

All you need to know is

#103 2 years ago

I played dialed in and hobbit is jacks best game to date. Did not get to play batman yet but there is no way you can tell from that video but the toy looks amazing in batman and I belive in LYMAN

#109 2 years ago
Quoted from sevenrites:

There really just doesn't look like there's much to shoot at, or any speed or fast action, excitement and flow. The spinning thing is slow and clunky looking, takes up a lot of space, there's toys that are out of scale with the rest of the art & package like the small bat mobile underneath the larger TV on the wheel thing. How is a TV larger than a bat mobile? These are the kinds of details that make a game go above and beyond, something I'm not seeing here, especially considering the price hike. It just looked a little dark, slow, tired, and half baked and a lot like a game I've already seen and wasn't into before.

How can you a judge a game before playing it and from that one video;
For example
I was dying to play dialed in and it left me feeling blah and bob the builder on a stick; wanted to love it but hobbit is light years better. I'd wait to judge it till you play it; that toy looks way cool and very innovative and differnt and not to mention the crane which is already awesome

#120 2 years ago

WWE is all Waison and not LYMAN he helped towards the end that was it

#129 2 years ago

Yeah that toy has like 3 different shots on each face of it so that is like 9 shots alone right there not to mention it has 4 total faces but one is only used for ball locks the others are all interactive with the game

#162 2 years ago

Batman is Lyman's first new game code since twd

#176 2 years ago
Quoted from inhomearcades:

I do like that it changes and integrates into the game, however my iniatal thoughts are that it spins much too slow for game play. I'm sure this could be adjusted though with coding.

You should throw up some video that would be awesome

#177 2 years ago

Especially since sterns video is not the best; great to see somebody got theirs hoping what's there so far code wise is good

#196 2 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

You realize that you are going to drive Derek absolutely insane by refusing to post video, right?
Carry on

I know right video how is it? Looks amazing

#204 2 years ago

Saw the speaker panel at expo and it looked great in real life and the sound system is a better one too

#209 2 years ago

I physically saw them at expo all 3 versions have a better sound system then spike 1, but the sle has even more powerful . Trust me it looks great in real life and very nice

#279 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

Flipped the card for you.</blockquote
Hoping it still has the combo system in it that Gomez had talked about on several of occasions and interviews

#400 2 years ago

Yeah not sure why there are some haters on here that are Metallica owners and are bashing batman 66; perhaps the forgot what the code was like when Metallica first came out; which was not good at all and very early and lacking a ton of stuff, but LYMAN came through and gave us a killer game in the end; perhaps they have lost faith in the best coder of all time LYMAN. And as said in the past give yourself time on a game before you judge it.
Can't wait to see what LYMAN has in store for us

#403 2 years ago

Sure they said the same thing when they got rid of alphanumeric displays back in the day; I say bring on the LCD display

#447 2 years ago

Looks like Gomez did a god job on the layout and it will not be like ghostbusters where you have to have a doz n different fixes and adjustments to get the game to play right, because of fatal flaws in the geometry of the game

#449 2 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

??? The geomerty of GB is fantastic. Possibly one of the best 2 flipper Stern games ever! The only real design flaw is the right ramp and with a little adjustment and practice it is not a deal breaker. The other shots, forced passive passing, great post passing, and really nice foundational ruleset that perfectlt matches the design... GB is so far from what you describe.
You either have only played poorly setup examples or need to work on your flipper skillz. GB is tough but it is a players game.

I have played and set up several ghostbusters and others can attest to the flaws and all the airball fixes that are needed for the game to play right, but hey to each his own. I think there is even a huge thread on here with ghostbusters issues

#581 2 years ago

All cosmetics and the topper

#767 2 years ago
Quoted from hoby1:

Batman 66.......they removed the mini PF and has the same R vuk and wire form as cheapo Costco BDK Batman. ( one of my first impressions along with outrageous price point )

Maybe you should wait to play the game first before judgement

#802 2 years ago

Their were very dark times for pinballs a few years back when csi and 24; stern survived and they're customer service is always second to none. BDK was coded by LYMAN but times were way different back then, and that was noted on here about bdk. Gomez himself said updates every two weeks and know LYMAN will make it great. LYMAN is the best coder their is and I know that for a fact just look at his last two games TWD and METALLICA. GOT and Ghostbusters were done by another great coder in Dwight but the difference is when you get LYMAN in code it constantly evolves but takes a little while to get done, but it will be awesome and grow along the way and end up being amazing. Dwights games are great out of the gates but never evolve and what you get is what you get. For example ghostbusters has been the same for the most part since it was released same as GOT.
My money is on LYMAN and batman 66

#845 2 years ago
Quoted from RocketPin:

Got my LE today!
episode #81

How are you liking it?

#973 2 years ago

Anybody hear anything on the new batman code? I know I'm dead flip Gomez said new code on Tuesday and still there is nothing posted?

#1088 2 years ago

Batman and robin is on the premium guys

#1126 2 years ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

Went to AYCE GOGI Friday night. I almost got the grand champion score on my first game of BM66. Got bored after playing my 3rd game on it so I left. Code is very early. Game was not put together well. Seemed flimsy. Lots of air balls. Lyman has his work cut out for him. Dialed In absolutely blows it away for similar coin.

That's why there are different games for different people; I feel the same way about dialed in game; man that game is just no batman 66 was expecting so much from that game but it falls flat and JJPs best game to date is the hobbit

#1232 2 years ago
Quoted from PinballCompany:

Played more pinball last night than I have in years. Batman 66 is really fun. I'm hooked. I will be buying one to go on route. It's too good to not share with the local pinheads!

I have one myself and all the haters on here should stop hating and play one before they judge it at all.

#1444 2 years ago

Guys make sure you have your game set up at the right height in the back; because I like mine set a little high and then it flows like butter my batman 66 that is
