Here's a thread for those who want to see the new game, instead of sorting through half a dozen pages of people pissing and moaning.

This may be narrow-minded, but the first thing that strikes me about this game is the criss-cross narrow inserts, a la Wizard Blocks. Seems to say Lawlor got to make a game of his choosing, which I find somewhat reassuring.

I immediately thought of that as well! I'm gonna have to check out some pics of Wizard Blocks to compare.

I stopped watching the stream (Because I could tell what was even going on) but now that I'm seeing these pics the game is looking really cool. Love the theme, seems to have tons of potential for good craziness. My only concern is the music... Really wish they had brought Chris Granner back as well.

#5 3 years ago

What the heck am I looking at?

Nothing...not the title, the layout, or even the artwork tells me what I would be playing.

Do I play SimCity on the display while trying to keep balls on the playfield and answer a phone call at the same time? Throw in some crying kids and it sounds like my real life!

Ah, yes... Gotta love auto-correct.

Actually though... An auto-correct mode would be really funny. You're trying to dial something in, but it keeps changing to the wrong thing and causes a bunch of disasters!

#8 3 years ago

NO,Smart Phone connections may be kool for you,but thats taking it down a path I don't care to go!! No thanks,next??

#9 3 years ago

I have this funny feeling that a lot of haters gonna love it when they play. Sounds very interesting to me and integration to a device which 90% of the world seems to have is just pure genius.
Dialed in is a great choice of name too as it means you are in the zone. Original themes just rock.
Wonder $$$ in Australia and who is selling.
This is waaaaaaaay better than gay batman66 IMHO.

#10 3 years ago

That would be an awesome Futurama pin.

#11 3 years ago

This looks awesome and can't wait to play one.

#12 3 years ago

Lol@"crazy mode"

#13 3 years ago

Looks kinda weird. However, we know Pat Lawlor and JJP absolutely know what they're doing.
Looking forward to exploring this title!

#14 3 years ago

"Acid Rain.... Trippy"

#15 3 years ago

Looks fun, I just hope we play it without having to fiddle with our smartphones, as an option

#16 3 years ago

anyone a clue what the drop-down (at least they look that way) "blades" on the flipper lanes are for?

I don't understand. It seems people want innovations w/ these machines and they're presenting one and your shooting it down? without even trying the game yet? if you want to hook in a new generation that doesn't have access to the rich guys mancave/basement arcade you're going to need something like this to get their interest.

my only issue w/ the use of a smartphone is what will users do if that technology doesn't exist in 20-30 years... and your stuck unable to progress in the game w/out the phone. I'm sure there will be something to mimic the device but still. I refuse to buy certain products today b/c they rely on current cellphone operating systems, then you have to worry about the company not updating the software or releasing the code.

that aside, I can't wait to try this out and see some game play. Are Red & Ted on the play field?

#18 3 years ago

So what does the phone an camera actually do in the game?

#19 3 years ago

I'm guessing full gameplay minus phone, just some bonus features if you choose, but not affecting progression.

I think it is a really cool game,but i hope it will sell for jjp.
Really like how they raise the bar.
But man it is an edgy machine.
Real dicy step for jjp..
But it shows how big jack's balls are.
Awesome guy

How much though?

Wonder if JJP's interactive features could help earn pinball's way back into Dave and Buster's... hmmm

Layout looks good, can't wait to play this thing. Lawlor is back!

I go there on occasion since my kids love it. The Dialed In pinball looks like it could hang amongst all the dazzling lights in that place...

#29 3 years ago

Music reminds me of safecracker. Theme and art execution kind of remind me of Road Show. It's definitely a Lawlor game. But is that enough to justify the price?

#30 3 years ago

Hopefully it will be a fun game to play and will do well for JJP, since they are the best thing going in pinball today by far! That said, I have no interest in blue tooth connectivity, whatever that is, and I don't need to somehow integrate pinball with phones. I have enough of phones in my life as it is! And $12k??? Come on man. Most of my cars don't cost that much! I really think they might have gone a bit far with this one. But who knows? They really hit home runs with WOZ and Hobbit!

Everyone yelled for an original theme.
Everyone screamed for an original theme.
Everyone demanded an original theme.
It's here and it gets crapped on before even playing it??

Wow! That looks WAY better than I expected. It looks to play like a Lawlor game. It's got a good light show and the theme integration seems decent. And it looks very playable already!

It'll be over my budget, but I'm anxious to see one of these on location!

So I was at Expo yesterday, JJP presentation and reveal and played "Dialed In". Few comments:

- Jack and Pat took a lot of time up front to set up the concept with the audience. Even passing out a comic book that helped frame the storyline of the game. It was well thought out intro. They addressed taking a risk on an original theme versus a movie, tv show or rock band but felt it was worth the gamble.

- When revealed "Dialed In" you could feel the room enthusiasm deflate a bit. I'm not sure what title people were thinking, but it felt like there was a "ok" when it was announced. Being honest, I felt the same - but can't say what I was expecting. Time machine was in my head I guess. I wanted to play and experience it - but I guess I leaned toward theme more than I thought.

- The game has MANY elements (i.e. sounds, components, etc) from Pat's previous designs. I could hear Roadshow, see Crazy Bob's store, LCD graphic elements reminding me of RFM, etc. I felt like many "cookies" were incorporated into the game - and a JJP employee nearby confirmed that comment I shared with friends.

- The gameplay was enjoyable. It's a typical Lawlor game, not super flowy but it does flow. That right outline shot that goes up a wire form ramp was gratifying.

- The toys on the game were interesting. While the phone may look outdated in 3 years based on the speed which technology advances in the mobile industry it's well integrated. It informs where to shoot (where you can see it), mode starts initiate there then move to the main LCD, is colorful with changing LEDs to indicate different functions and even shows low battery life where you have to shoot targets to charge it again. The Einstein Theater is a mix between GB ecto-goggles and RFM/SWE1. In fact it's much better than GB in my opinion. It's not just to shoot and kill spiders and things. It also opens mystery boxes, delivers skill shot awards, etc. It's incorporated well once you spend time on it.

- Not sure if people are aware but there is a camera facing the player hidden in the backless bottom section. It serves a few functions. First, it takes pictures of the player and displays them like polaroids in the back glass during a multi ball accomplishment. Sounds corny but I find it brilliant. People waiting to play had a great laugh seeing your "pinball face" while playing. Secondly, when the Einstein theater displays a scratch off ticket and you hit it, you have a certain amount of time to scratch it off. Displayed on the top LCD once collected you have to waive your hand in front of the game (taking it off flipper buttons) to simulate scratching the card. Like it or dislike it - that's innovation we ask for in these forums.

- The sounds system really is well done. A fellow pinsider who was playing pointed out how the sound seem to be more directed at the player for a feeling of more immersion. When it was my turn, I couldn't agree more with his observation. The speakers seemed to be directed perfectly at the player.

- Pat himself pointed out to us during multi-ball how the alien ships fire at you. You have to hit the targets where it came from otherwise (as seen on play field inserts that light up) if the lights reach your flipper that flipper will sputter and not be responsive for a few minutes.

- The LCD integration again, is one of JJP's strengths and continues in this game. Explains and supports the storyline and modes well. Even in this early code state.

After a bit of deflation at the theme announcement, the gameplay was enjoyable. This is one of those games you really do have to play and be open minded towards. The game is full featured with many toys and we know JJP will deliver on the code. Still, the price point has me waiting on the sidelines. Need to play more and see how it matures in code.

We asked for an original theme - and got one. I'd suggest playing to form your own opinion before slamming it. It could surprise you.

(BTW...it was cool to see Pat so passionate about this game)

#34 3 years ago

Sounds like , and I trust badbillys judgment of gameplay first, then decide - that this will be pats game flow and feel and play well.

Jacks no fool - he let Pat show the title "as is" respecting Pats design choices . Jack may have silently disliked it too, but ready to change it if reception was blah or hate it. Expo test market and Pinside hate it. Ok Pat, there's your focus group opinion - so we are changing the theme to Quantum City - expect delay Tim summer 2017 for rework of decal art and play fields .

Hobbit ? Jack listened.
Dialed In ? Jack will listen .

Keep Calm . Play the game . I d like others to post on game play with the details explained like badbilly

This is absolutely brilliant to interact with the game with "modern" technology. I think this will be a big draw on location for kids and non pinball fans as they will want to play for that experience alone. Sounds silly but it is all about the Selfie/ticket redemption these days and I think Jack and his crew are "Dialed IN" when it comes to a new concept for pinball to be experienced in the current market!

well said, i hope we can have a heavily modded thread here so for once we could get a discussion about a machine without becoming an off topic mud slinging pissing contest.
we have an opportunity to help shape this game as we did with the hobbit, and maybe draw back the JJP team that are now ghosts of this forum.
Dialed in does have a lot of cool possibility's for it, no one seems to care for the hands free blue tooth play, but i think during certain modes, a three way team play where as 1 of three players each has control of one flipper would be insane fun.
with bluetooth , cellular based payment systems are easily integrated ( tapp pay, speed pass maybe apple pay , not sure about apple pay i haven't received my kit yet and don't understand it) as well as bill to phone payment.
pre-pay data cards as redemption tickets, or scan able QR codes.
Mall locations teamed up with a provider could be a fully interactive marketing tool .
flame on,but i own a RR, waiting on a TH, but also own a SM,IJ4,SP, and my next purchase is a GB pro and will wait on this to see how it evolves.

$13,990 AUD inc GST, looks like it will be a bit cheaper based on the qty of orders we are receiving

Gzus, do you take trade ins? Might be a good time to thin the collection, but what to sell?

#41 2 years ago

Personally, I really dislike the art style, graphics, theme as it's very juvenile and generic looking. However, I still can't wait to play it as it looks like it could be fun as hell. Definitely nothing I would plunk down that kind of coin for to own, but will be first in line to play it when I see it.
