It"s Gilligan's Island Remake. GIr
Quoted from Sethman:
The HD dot upgrade on Addams would be killer!
Suffers a bit from being an early dot matrix title and could really benefit from a little dot enhancement.
ColorDmd, upscaling mode.
Quoted from Nepi23:
A TAFr with proper audio would be so good to get!
Pinsound+, sfudio, then custom mix.
Quoted from Whysnow:
oh, I completely agree and think the longer they wait, the more money that people are allocating to other new titles.
When people dont even know the next title and are able to play TNA, ACNC, JJP POTC, and Iron Maiden and this huge show then the remake is not even in the running for where to put NIB money.
You forgot Houdini. Since Texas show orders for machines have been off the hook crazy.
Quoted from sprite:
TAFr would be an instant buy from me as well.
Been a whole lot of TAF playfields being made lately. Mirco, CPR....hummm. Wow, to cool. "Quicksand, fumes, toxic waste, it's all ours."
Quoted from LTG:
Like better audio. Speaker lights. Big display. Shaker motor. Mirror blades. And the Addams family on top of the backbox tipping a cauldron full of hot oil onto the Christmas Carolers below ?
Now we're talking !
LTG : )
But, LLoyd commenting here above....Means it's not going to be TAF.
Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:
It'll come when it comes and Lloyd can say whatever the hell he pleases (with forum rules of course).
Lloyd has a pass at what ever he wants to say!
I was really taken back by the SDTM post. I had to read it twice to make sure what I read.
They are comfortable in there free speach podcast, he can also post what he wants.
But damn, sure feel like it was a low blow.
Quoted from rubberducks:
May well be nothing to do with it, but it isn't THAT unlikely that WMS' parent would consider re-entry to the market, given today's pricing, and at least in Stern's case, a hugely cost cut and presumably very high margin product. Their profit margins have to be a far cry from what they got out of in 1999.
Wouldn't even surprise me if they bought out CGC / Churchill.
Their reason for denying Farsight a license extension (at any cost) has to be to do with wanting the whole pie, and / or controlling their IP much more tightly - which would make sense if they intend to either take control of or make more cash out of the physical stuff.
Something is brewing, or rotten in Denmark for sure.
Licensing might be an issue.
The virtural tables are taking a hit at the end of the month and the party is over for PPM. Not even able to sell them anymore. You have till June 30th to buy and download all 77 of there tables.
The 3D translite guys in germany are at a stand still with no communication and permission to finish the 3 they have ready to go. PPS is running out of these now not restocking. Just checked, only MM is no longer for sale, but stock is low.
There has also been a stand still and almost no new product from PPS.
I see a bigger problem with no proof, however the stars are lining up and the future of parts is starting to look grim again.
Quoted from TigerLaw:
I respectfully disagree. The future of parts has never been better with fabrication tools at the fingertips of so many. If licensing drys up people will just fix their own issues in some way or another.
Could be a price to play poker type of thing. Perhaps they want too much for licenses now.
Nah, SG isn’t going to get into Pinball manufacturing.
Agreed, i should clarify.
Anything metal, mechanical and playfield and cabinet parts are healthy, and not going anywhere.
Plastic sets, cabinet decals, translites and anything with licensed images could be in danger.
Quoted from HighVoltage:
I don't think we're reading enough into what's going on, let's see if I can figure this out.
Doug is moving to Stern and he had a good relationship with Scientific Games. FarSight has lost the Williams rights for Pinball Arcade. Stern has been hiring programmers left and right. Stern will develop their own video simulations from now on, wanting to cash in on that slice of the pie themselves. Additionally, they have not only obtained the Williams rights for simulation, in one fell swoop they obtained full Williams rights including those to build physical games. Rick is reeling from this coup. He's attempting to play hardball with the only leverage he has: not releasing MB, thus no royalties to SG, unless some compromise is reached. His position is weak though, and CGC is also scrambling because of all their investment to build machines going unused. They are switching focus to Capcom titles which Circus Maximus has the rights to, and the line is being switched over for King Pin production.
pkiefert is just trying to throw us off the trail of what is obviously going on!
Quoted from brainmegaphone:
Oh well... Peace and Love Peace and Love (Howard Stern listeners anyone?)
I cancelled my sirus/xm few months back, dont miss it, and Howard had become the same ol, same ol. Got old over past ten years.
Speculation, pretty much this whole thread.
Fun to guess and figure out whats happening.
Prerty much driving our excitment for the next game.
So i agree with many of your points.
Grain of salt, or truth? Time will tell.
Until then, waiting for CCr.
Quoted from Oneangrymo:
Whats the best way to save room to fit more pinball machines in? Straight or at an angle? Does it change anything. I need to fit one more machine in when CGC 3 comes out, trying to figure out how to do it
Man, good question. Good friend has his 10 angled in, 5 on each side of room. Despite my 20 collection, most are in garage. I have to do straight for my 7 in living room.
Quoted from Sethman:
those unsubstantiated rumors saying we'd hear something this week look to be crap like all the priors.......
Conspiracy theory and observations;
GAME 3 delay.
3D Translites thread mentions no communication 3 months. They are dead in water without approval, with finished product and investment gathering dust.
PPS and Rick , also silent with no communication or updates on many long awaited parts, many said that were in production. Only new stuff on website for months is from other developer's and makers.
VR Tables on Bally Williams pulled.
Yet, CPR and mirco or full steam ahead. Maybe thats because licenses are in limbo and there international status gives them free range for awhile.
So, ill just have to wait many years for my cactus canyon.
Quoted from greenhorn1:
I have no inside knowledge at all but I've assumed all week that Pinball Stars week of emails was building to an announcement of game #3 today. Guess we'll see in the next few hours.
Pretty Sure thats a Big No.
Lets all text Joe at 3am and ask.
Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:
Oh you can send me money.
So Bryan....we can send Preorder wait list prospect for remake or custom game?
Ill take a Wrath of Olympus!
Quoted from YZRider926:
Anyone know if remake #3 will fit into a Prius? Asking for a friend.
We have a prius.
Well, it will fit, but your going to tear up plastic at rear. You would need rope, because tail gate will be up the whole trip home. Everytime you hit a bump, tailgate will slam on machine, so bring packing blankets.
Ummm....not that Ive ever done or would do that.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
They could also just announce it on a random Wednesday and not at a show.
When did pinside become convinced that games can only be announced at shows?
Kinda the way its been for years. Expo Chicago was always famous for this. Granted, weve drifted from this the last 5 years or so. But lets face it, shows are were there touched and played the first time. Unless its Batman66 and you just look at it.
Quoted from Mokthemagicman:
Something tells me that the "announcement" was supposed to happen during Pinball Star's "Happy Week" but was delayed even for that. I really hope it is soon. This is getting ridiculous.
My guess is that's it's JULY.
Waiting on AUGUST 1 to reveal?
Which would mean some sort of License agreement had to take place and money exchange hands.
Quoted from Graysonsdad:
I've been waiting so long and now a TOTAN is for sale.....idk what to do. Both are in my top 5 favs, maybe even top 3.
If I buy TOTAN, that will be the day they announce Monster Bash details lol.
If i thought cgc was remaking TOTAN sometime soon I'd wait but i dont think it's a high priority for them. Everyone is clamoring for CC or BBB next so IF cgc decides to do TOTAN, it is many years away.
Buy the TOTAN now!
Mine never leaving. Remakes will be available for years to come. At this rate it would be 5 plus years before they get to it, if ever.
I'm pretty sure at this point they are waiting to make sure every distributor has at least 20 in warehouse before the release.
Quoted from CGC-Ryan:
Good Afternoon Pinsiders.
We are working hard to get Monster Bash out the door and into your hands, and are very close to its release.
Since somebody decided to share some images from #monster-bash-limited-edition , we decided to show you a sneak preview of the topper.
More details will be coming in the next few weeks.
Keep your eyes open and ears listening as Monster Bash is getting ready to Rock Again. [quoted image]
