Quoted from 3pinballs:
I hate all these pinball mfgrs now as they're all bringing out games I want to buy. I hope stern continues to use Zombie Yeti as I believe his artwork is the best bar none!
While Stern has cheapened up materials....they certainly are upping there game in other area: artwork, good layouts, good themes and finally in code. I hope they keep up this! I also here they are now installing corner brackets and service rails on all models. Hope they can find better wood next (but that might be a factor of wood industry).
All this should be expected!
Keep improving Stern - fantastic looking Deadpool! Not a sleeper anymore. I believe LE model is almost sold out!
Quoted from hassellcastle:
Boom! Just sold the last one of our current allocation of LE’s.
It may not be movie based with Ryan Reynolds but sales on this title seem to be pretty solid out of the gate.
If interested in purchasing a Deadpool Pro, Premium an LE or any other currently in production Stern Pinball, contact me and I’ll do my best to provide you with the best price & service I possibly can.
Do you require down payment?
There were several humorous points.
Even when the person entered their initials for high score.
Wanted movie theme, but moved past this. Like all the interactions and artwork. If code is strong it will be a hit.
Others on the fence, I was there with Iron Maiden- not a fan of the music at all. However after playing the pin it has changed my mind from just another music theme pinball to a maybe own one day.
For everyone let’s PLAY pinball and enjoy each machine. You never know until you play it.
Quoted from MikeS:
Best bet is to send donations to Cleland and have him make an R rated version using the Ryan Reynolds clips from the movies. Cleland completely transformed the sound package for TWD and could do the same for Deadpool if he is willing. I don't think we'll see an R rated version from Stern.
He did a great job on GOTG also!
Where are you? We need your help!
Quoted from J85M:
Yes as per Gomez himself no R rated material, Deadpool is family friendly.
Hopefully cleland can work his magic using the r rated video game and animated shows.
Petition started - vote please. (Hoping this catches Sterns eyes).
Petition these guys - follow link above.
Also others can modify if needs - like CLELAND
Quoted from kvan99:
Yeah, I mean when they announced I was picturing Deadpool movie pin, this comic and 80's fighting game just seems off to most of us not familiar with the comic book. It's possible Cleland could transform the game..I'm thinking maybe inserting Ryan's voice into the 4th wall clips could help a lot..?
It would be icing on top of the cake. Pinball is great, just needs some sound tweaks either by Stern or someone like CLELAND.
Some games naturally are easier to setup with less difficult shots. Harder, more challenging (shots) games tend to need more tweaking, but are worth it once dialed in.
FYI, I have one sweet, dialed in GBLE!
Quoted from jar155:
These feel a little unsatisfying, but they're not that big of an issue for me.
I don't think it's a nitpick when clean shots don't go. That's bad design. And if the game has to be perfectly set up to work at an acceptable level, this game will be a nightmare on route. Games get pushed around and move a bit. George just needs to design shots that work reliably. He's never been great at doing that and many of his designs take mods or tweaks to work right. I'm sure people will find out what works best here, but I don't always trust operators to implement those things. Batman 66 on route is a player's nightmare, but in the home of a collector that knows how to tweak, it's a whole different game.
IMHO you are nitpicking- i have seen way to many games on route that are crap. And I have seen many smooth flowing games in collections.
Mechanical machines require fine tuning! Some more than others. But if you are mechanically inclined you can dial them in. Yes some machines require more than others (like my GBLE) but spend the time and they are sweet! That is part of the hobby / fun
