Quoted from luvthatapex2:

And a new game from Multimorphic -cosmic cart racing

Wow, this has been a long time coming. I can't even remember how many Expos ago it was that they were running the looping 'demo' for it.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I may sound naive but I really had no idea how many people went to shows just for the reveals.

Personally I'm spoiled as shit when it comes to just playing pinball. Going to a show to see and play some games doesn't have a strong draw for me anymore, I can do that all the time.

I'm not going to Texas, but if I was it would be because I wanted to see the new goodies (and hang with friends from out of state).

Quoted from Zitt:

I have never gone to a show to gawk at new games.
Look at the vendors; sure. Play pinball, socialise are the only reasons to go.
That's why Chicago is dead to me...

Oh please, who brought his awesome custom game to a show to show it off? Who was all about the PROC row at Expo? You.

New games doesn't have to mean "OH MY GAWD THE NEW STERN IS HERE". The custom games and personal projects are more exciting to me than a new Stern, that's all under the umbrella of "new games" to me. As opposed to going to play old games that I've played before and can generally find without much trouble. SoCal isn't hurting for game availability.

Playing pinball is probably the bottom of my list for reasons I go to shows.

I don't care about the vendors, sorry guys, but I'll just order from you and pay for the shipping rather than haul stuff around, I almost never buy parts at shows.

Quoted from unigroove:

What I find interesting about the whole situation is the different ways various companies operate. CGC announces a delay on when introducing their new game to get it completely right. Another company rushed various games to release with hardly any code in it. JJP announces a game, but it won't go into production for 6 months, while it's gets tested, improved and code expanded in the meantime. So many different approaches.

Scott took his white wood to shows and let people play it before the art was even started, let alone announced.

I love Monster Bash a lot, but never felt like it had enough longevity. AFM and MM have more long term play value in my opinion. I'm pretty curious what the 'new stuff' they're adding is about, if it's just some light up whatever, then cool but pass. But if it actually extends the gameplay in some fashion that would be very cool.

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

There was a posting last night for one of the west coast shows and they were giving away an MBr. Whoops, did they say that? Yes they did and within minutes it was changed to giving away a NIB pinball. Something like that. It would appear MBr is coming.

Scroll back up the (edit previous) page.

I just assume Stern is on the ball asking for images to be taken down, and that's why the Munster leaks haven't been passed around even though they came out months ago. I sure wasn't gonna post them.

I dunno what people were hoping for, but it's Monster Bash. We already knew it wouldn't have new code, what did you really expect? Has some light up toy and sculpted topper, the basics. If you want a Monster Bash now you can get one. If you needed convincing extra stuff to get one then my advice to you is pass on the game. Because it's super fun, but ultimately pretty shallow, and if you're not all in just with the basics already no little extra doodad is going to transform it into some kind of deep keeper title.

So what do you think Andrew?

Hello mods, I'd like to report this post for abuse

#1987 1 year ago
Quoted from Goronic:

Really? or is this a joke?

Good lord, of course it was a joke, just joshing about having to see a picture of Andrew. Everyone who downvoted me, grow a sense of humor you stiffs.

I once started a mod that used those plasma discs. I abandoned using them after I discovered their reliability was super hit or miss, and I was worried the fad might end and you wouldn't be able to buy them anymore. Didn't want to rely on something I couldn't control. They're cheapo Chinese toys, and you get what you pay for. My advice is if you get the LE to buy a few extra to stock away as replacements. Don't want to end up like Scared Stiff, where the floppy rubber puppets stopped being made and you couldn't get more easily.

#2379 1 year ago
Quoted from Chicoman:

I know that was a big criticism of the original game was that the code was not up to par and new code was never released for it.

This is like a game of telephone, that's simply not true, but people keep repeating things they heard and didn't understand until it builds into this myth.

The code on the game is great, the sounds are great, it's a wonderful package. It's also a 90s arcade title, so it's meant to be 'beatable', it doesn't have super deep and subtle rules that force you to make a lot of decisions in how to approach it. You collect the monsters to win the game, it's not Valinor and out of reach except after years of 45 minutes to an hour long games.

For some people that means it's too shallow to want to own. If you want a game that's a challenge, that kicks your ass, and you have to keep trying and trying to even see a chance at getting close to the end, this won't be it. If you want a game that's just a complete package and fun, and shooting it to enjoy it all sounds good, then it's a really wonderful title.

It's just the design, and you love it for what it is or you don't, but nothing is unfinished, it's not "missing new code" or anything of the sort.

#2383 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Well said Aurich.

Look, this 'deep code' obsession is just too much. If you want that kind of game, buy that kind of game. I dig it, there's no judgment at all. There are people catering to you, support them. Let's all just remember it's not the only way to have fun with pinball. There's a reason the '90s games have been popular for so long, they're just plain fun. You can play them whenever, without a giant grind, and have a good time.

A lot of these new pins are cute and clever, and kinda soul-less rules machines. You don't get kick ass voice acting like Monster Bash has. The looping theme is one of my all time favorite pinball tracks. It's the full package, it looks great, it sounds great, it's fun to play, it's easy to show new players what to do and they can have a good time trying to put Frankenstein together.

The prices are ridiculous, and yet, a deal lol. Games are too expensive now. And yet $6k is solid in the market. $8k for a game is ridiculous, but for one that nice even without the cool extra stuff you'd pat $10-12k before. So ... it's good. I hate the new prices, hate hate hate it, ruining the hobby, but this is a good deal if you can accept where things are at, if that makes sense.

Quoted from JJHLH:

1000 AFMr LE’s were made. I have one, along with an MMr.

I would personally rather own MM and MB, or better yet, AFM and MB. AFM and MM are both great, but a little too similar in layout and shots.

#2431 1 year ago

So I don't understand the story with the classic version DMD, it says it's upgradeable, can someone break that down for me? I'm assuming that means it ships with monochrome, old school dots, and you can just pick the color right?

But if you pay them some amount extra (how much??) you get the new dots, with higher rez, just on the old school DMD size. So it's just a software update you pay for, not anything else.

Do I have that right? I can't seem to find pricing or details on the Chicago Gaming website.

#2435 1 year ago
Quoted from Coz:

Yes. Exactly how AFMr was. The classic model comes with single color dots, you had to buy the $400 color chip to activate the color dots. Bought my AFMr used with color chip already installed

$400, got it. I guess that's when you start eyeing the next version up as long as you're spending that much.

#2522 1 year ago

The new CE price is much better, the old one was just dumb once you added the color upgrade, it was too close to the next level up.

Quoted from Damien:

What is it that MM/AFM have that MB lacks?

Depth. Of strategy, of approach, of number of goals. It's just an easier game, with less to do, over all, compared to those two.
