I hope the speculation is true, if so I'll be on board!

#252 3 years ago

Does this mean it could be spooky and not Stern producing the game?

I think when people say Elvira is 'not spooky #3' - it just means it's not Spooky's 3rd in house game.. leaving the door open that it could be Spooky building the game on contract.

If so, why is Spooky hosting the panel?

#258 3 years ago

God it better not be another fake EM game!!!! That would be a wast of a great title.

Quoted from Allibaster:

Because,
Charlie's a pinhead like the rest of us.
I think the rumor mill here is fun, but some times... a door is just a door.

This has nothing to do with the game then, right?

IDK. It might... but right now I'm just assuming Charlie is hosting because TPF asked him to do it. or he asked to help in some way.

#262 3 years ago

Either way, I'm excited to see what information on the game may or may not be revealed at TPF!

#263 3 years ago

Saw this in Vegas. Great graphics.

Great. *Another* slot I need to get my hands on (pun intended)!

No one has answered the original question- what do you want to see in Elvira 3?

At minimum, it has to have a left orbit lock shot and a really wild ramp. I'd like to see it have a specific nod to a mode in each of the first two games and glow in the dark plastics.

I'm sure Greg will knock the art out of the park, so I'm not worried about the art package being a photoshopped aberration. I would absolutely love new organ music and the related jokes. That sequence in EATPM is one of my favorite sound sequences ever.

I have mixed feelings about what the display should be. I don't know if it would be best to use the new Stern LCD and use old video or if they should go retro.

Mostly I want the game to be what Cassandra, Greg and Dennis want it to be without any Stern "we know better" changes.

#267 3 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

I fear Stern already know better what pricetage it should be. But to get back to your original question:
I like the game to have tons of funny double entendres. I like the display to be LCD and use footage from her movies or TV shows, maybe with some added on animations. I understood an animated Elvira TV show is in the works, but do hope that won't be the full focus of the game. A mix of the new show and movie/TV show material could work.

I doubt Stern will want to go with the following scene for a 2-ball multiball:


Would be nice to see an easy to get to 2-ball multiball and a little harder to achieve 3-ball multiball

No chance!

I hope so..

#270 3 years ago

I'd also like to see them work in little clips from old (public domain) monster and sci-fi movies into the video, for some of the animations - with Elvira's comedy added, like in her TV show.

Great idea.
I personally would prefer this over too much innuendo. While it was nice on Scared Stiff, for me it just got too old to quickly.

Casandra said that after last year's Comicon, she would no longer attend shows in costume.

It'd be cool to see a 'secret passage' of some sort.

Why is that? Did something bad happen at the comicon?

I saw it on Fox News last year.

I don't remember the specifics.

Then she reinstated on her facebook page she would continue and its not true about no longer being in costume..Scroll through her fb page its all there..... She said the original statement in the media was not correct.....

When we booked Cassandra in November for TPF, I was told by her manager that she was no longer appearing as Elvira and would only appear as herself. That's not to say she won't change her mind later, but so far every 2017 appearance listed on her website says she is only appearing as Cassandra.

#281 3 years ago

Happy I got to meet her before she decided to hang up the Elvira persona for good.

#282 3 years ago

And don't forget Dennis' original post 4 years ago about an Elvira 3:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-elvira-pinball-game

Lots of great ideas in there.

I would love to see a modern machine. Some of my thoughts :

#283 3 years ago

I thought this post was relevant:

Quoted from epthegeek:

Are you talking EM style like Whoa Nellie is? or a modern game?

Quoted from DennisNordman:

Ah, I should have mentioned this. We are talking full blown modern game. Elvira is one character in this adventure game. Could be zombies, could be UFOs, could be monsters, could be Hello Kitty.

#284 3 years ago
Quoted from Allibaster:

I thought this post was relevant:

Yeah, that's in line with what he told me at Expo. He said his next game with stern would be a full, modern style game. Not another WNBJM throwback style.

#285 3 years ago

Well isn't this titillating???

#286 3 years ago

I believe her logic was that it is getting kind of ridiculous for her to be Elvira at her age. Some things just aren't " holding up" like they used to. Sort of like Clint Eastwood a little while back. He said something like do you want to see an old man Dirty Harry going around kicking ass in a wheelchair?

I read something where Elvira was getting a young woman to dress up as Elvira and stand in for her. The pics I saw didn't do her justice though. There was just something special about her as Elvira. Sheesh she has got to be the most attractive woman of her age I have ever seen.

#287 3 years ago

Looks like she's still, kinda, relevant..

Actually I also bought the book last weekend. Barnes & Nobles have a discount campagn on their website: code: BNMAR15 will give you a discount of 10 or 15 %. Including free shipping the book is less than $30. Couldn't resist that

Any new gossip or unsubstantiated rumors? Nordman is presenting 'another homerun' on Friday at TPF...

I've been waiting to hear more... Where did the 'homerun' comment come from?

I'm curious about that too. Is that a hint of some sort? If so, doesn't seem very Elvira-ish.

Well that's very interesting. That's an additional spot he's doing besides the panel with Cassandra and Greg. The plot thickens!

#297 3 years ago

ooooooooohhhhhhh a retro pitch and bat game?
