Stop talking about PTC, my fear is that CGC starts to consider it for real as there seems to be demand for it
Quoted from P1nhead:
If this is the Spooky-CGC collaboration I am in.
A Spooky-CGC collaboration would be most intriguing to me. Don’t get me wrong, the remakes are great, but there are a lot of great pins out there competing for dollars and I’m not sure how a remake will stack up to one of those at about the same price point. I say that knowing the remakes have done well in the past, but to me it feels like a bit of a different landscape right now.
Quoted from transprtr4u:
Sadly CGC has fallen way behind! JJP was lambasted for the silence and no updates.
JJP was lambasted more for announcing POTC way too early and letting the hype wither on the vine before they were ready to ship. They’ve figured out that Stern has it right, don’t announce until you’ve got games coming off the line. CGC may have puzzled this out as well.
AFM was much higher than 6K before the CGC remake rumors were out there.
Quoted from robotron:
this was said about monster bash all along.
Monster bash was only one license with Universal who is easy to work with, for all the monsters.
Their own games have been in the plans for some time. The Ben Heck/Spooky was posted on Pinside awhile back. And they are working on other things too.
LTG : )
My biggest fear is it WILL be TOM and I have to go tell the wife I am either selling a kidney or she can authorize the purchase, but by hook or by crook, I am getting a CGC TOMrLE machine for my 59th birthday... I’ll argue we can enjoy it and wait until they do the TAFrLE, and then sell TOM to fund that purchase.
I really don't get the whole secretive game theory.....I kinda get it with Stern since they want u to buy now, but with CGC it makes no sense. If its a remake it is what it is....I could argue it helps them during these down times as people might prefer their remake to anything Stern or JJP is putting out, and want to say their $ for the new remake. That being said the market risk has gone up significantly as they've already made the three obvious titles especially if TZ, IJ, TAF are off the board.
Quoted from PtownPin:
I really don't get the whole secretive game theory..
Me either... but secrecy drives hype and speculation, even on a recreation, which is marketing gold to be mined, or so they say.
I’m in for almost any of the Jpop recreations, but only because they are fun to play. TAF (if and when) is a instant purchase because it’s a favorite of the wife (who has tie breaking veto power on all large transactions) but She has surprised me in the past, especially when I asked her if we could get MBrCE and she was “No” and I was all “well I tried” and she then said, “we are getting the LE” and I was “you sure?, the SE is a bargain...” and it was “what, and pass on THAT topper??!?”
The other pins on the short list are way harder sells, especially BBB, IJ, or name any other 90’s B/W... AFMrLE almost got her to jump on the CGC bandwagon but it was Universal Classic Monsters that really did the trick.
I’m just afraid she is going to hold out for TAF for our second CGC title.
Quoted from jorant:
Correct. But this isn't new. Just weird how when someone owns a game it automatically is the best game ever.
Hence 'new' in quotes CC is such a limited games that many likely haven't played it. Thus if re-released and it's 'new' it will become the next best game that people have never played before.
I mean if I spend $6k+ on a new game you better believe that's going to be the best game I have ever played.... otherwise why would I buy it?!
I totally get your point and please know I'm making some fun!
To add some content to this thread of value I was under the impression that TOM would be the next game released, however I have NO insight to this. CC would be interesting but I wonder if that would do as well as TOM. I've played CC and TOM and prefer TOM in both theme and gameplay.
