Quoted from RustyLizard:

I thought speculating based on history was your thing.

This is not historical reflection regarding this title.

Going to be interesting to see some nice clear pics. I bet this game is going to be packed with goodies and i feel really good about Tim Sexton on code also. This is going to be yet another big hit by Stern. The Stern guys better rent a damn UHAUL for next years Twipy's because they are going to have a boatload of trophies to bring home.

You got The Munsters, BK3, and Elvira 3 coming. Everyone else may as well stay home next year because Stern is killing it right now!

So are you saying all other companies should close up shop?

No im not saying that, but im saying that they are gonna get their asses kicked this year. JJP sound like they are gonna have some good offerings but we will see how that works out, too much money though imo to even consider one of theirs. Stern is just crushing it right now.

Terry I know yer right hand is busy with Uncle Gary but could ya hold my beer with yer left? I'm up on IMDN.

#64 1 year ago

I agree with you T. JJP looks like they're shootin for the 1% club, and I can't blame em, but most of us ain't in that club.

6k on a toy is plenty. Don't go doubling down on me gotdamn!

It's not unusual to see the Black Knight with multiple weapons. The original BK shows a Mace, Sword, and Lance (BK shown holding a sword on the playfield and on a plastic [swords being a large focal point for the playfield in general]). In BKSR, it appears the Black Knight is holding a sword on the side of the head...I can't tell what he may have on the playfield toy (hoping both his arms move up and down to block shots...almost looks like at least the shield side is designed with that in mind). Perhaps alternate art will show him with a sword for those that want it to make more sense?

Looking better than I expected. Black Knight is one of my favorite games (unfortunately can't say the same about BK2K for the gameplay aspect). I wouldn't have wanted another attempt at the split playfield design (BK already perfected it the first time for me), so I'm at least glad to see there's a new direction here.

Just a side note... why do the speaker grills look like steel screen grating? All that cool art and then... those grills.

Devil is in the details.

Doubters should have realized old pinball collectors have their inside information from the designers themselves.
We were not surprised, but just as well it was revealed early.
Good to see that Stern did not skimp on the mirrored back glass for limited edition version.
It is not Black Knight without an upper playfield.

#73 1 year ago

Im not sure if i like what i see with the pro model. I have 5 Sterns on route at a brewery i partner with but it just does not look that great. Anyone else.

I am starting to feel that way as well. Really want to see DF do a stream of the pro.

Pro vs. Premium vs. LE. Only 2 flippers on the Pro.

Not a fan of upper PF's happily take the 2 spinners, pro for me. Looks great.

I need to play this before I put on route. Not all Sterns are created equal.

Good call on the BK! Looks awesome but I am not happy about the pro not having an upper playfield like the originals.

Totally agree. Its the same basic cheap model.

Actually, it's not. The Black Knight mech is not molested (ala KISS Demon Head, Vengeance ship, Hyperloop, etc...), has 24 RGB inserts (Most Pros had 6-8), and the Magnasave is present as well.

A very solid Pro.

I'll have to painfully agree with this. Should still make a nice pro for the masses. And I do own both BK and BK2K. So people like myself will just have to op for a premium.

Have to see some gameplay before I make an assumption. I really want to like the pro but it depends on code vs Premium

Wasn't talking about how it plays, was quoting you the known facts of the features.

To me it looks like all Stern pros. Very basic and simple. Not much going on. A very stripped down model. I have 5 Sterns so I’m not saying it F sucks. I’m just saying it’s no different than any other Stern. It’s new and the hype is up. Give it 3 weeks or so after people have them and they will be on the market for sale. We all like be new stuff. It’s exciting but it will fade and fade quickly.

To me, it's not as stripped down as other Pros, per the items I already mentioned.

Pros are always a crapshoot, but some of them are very solid and some not.

I don't think that is fair. For one, this is a Steve Ritchie game. That counts for something as the king of flow. Two, it has a really cool interactive toy. How well it works in gameplay remains to be seen but it definitely looks promising. Three, it has some retro charm with theme/music and connections to past classics. Artwork looks fantastic. Sound/music is good. Upper pf looks legit and not just a gimmick. Granted it all comes down to gameplay/code but I wouldn't say this game is just your typical Stern with typical theme, typical fan layout, and same features as past games.

Too much common sense in that post.

I do like the pro’s artwork the best.
