Quoted from Darscot:
I'm not going to post my resume on Pinside. I'm high level SE at one of the biggest gaming studios in the world, working on the biggest game we make. I confident in my ability to estimate the cost of different implementations. I fully concede I don't know anything about Stern's process or decision making. Stern very well may have went this direction purely for aesthetics.
If the art looked like the post above me I would be down. Its blurry and pixelated, its nowhere near that crisp or sharp.
What is a SE?
Quoted from PinBalt:
Hmmmm. Here’s a thought. What if the 4th wall Deadpool in 4K video actually turned out to be voiced by Ryan Reynolds. How awesome would that be and he could even get into back and forth chatter with the cartoon Deadpool voiced by Nolan North
That’d be great, but with how flatly some of the jokes are written, I doubt Stern would have thought to have gotten this cleverly meta.
Quoted from benheck:
s X amount of power to make it up a ramp. If you're just shooting a ramp straight there's just one variable "is there enough power?"
Quoted from Damien:
You have to give a little credit to the humor from the 90s... MM, AFM, MB, SS all had some pretty great lines that make you smirk while you play.
I do agree that game like SMVE just failed completely in the humor department, and from watching the stream, it seems like they used the same writers, or they just went so PG that anyone who isn't 14 isn't going to find this funny after half hour on this machine.
It's really too bad, because it's one of my dream themes, but callouts are super important to me, and could be the make or break factor.
Waiting to see what they do with the 1.0 code...
Good point, although these games were meant to be cheesy which is why it works. Deadpool is meant to be witty which is why it falls slightly flat (into Dad Joke territory).
Quoted from valgalder:
I really can't remember the last genuinely funny pin.. all the recent ones that try to be funny almost always fall flat or just get painfully repetitive. There is a fine line when dealing with humor though, but Bally/Williams managed to get it right more than others. Definitely one thing I miss from modern pinball.
Brian Posehn is a good comedian though, so I still have hope they can pull it off with this one.
Cool avatar BTW! What's it from?
