    I think it's funny all of the people hating on WNBJM. Get a group of friends together and play some multiplayer games on it. It's one of the best 4 player games ever made. Simple but hard to master with good art, custom callouts, and all on the spike system. It's an absolute blast and when setup correctly is harder the GB or IM could ever imagine being.

    I'll be happy to see any new Elvira game, apparently I will be the only one disappointed when it's not a throw back stile though.

    Quoted from Chitownpinball:

    Another tired, boring, outdated theme for the gross old men. Pass so hard.

    I about pissed my pants laughing after I saw this statement from an owner of Barb Wire.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    It's actually not as good as almost every 1970s gottlieb 4 player or late 1970s Bally 4-player, and a bunch of 1970s williams four players. Which isn't a shock because it's based upon a crappy 1950s game. There's very little going on in Nellie and almost no progressive or interesting scoring features. It's a true bat the ball around, keep it in play game where almost everything is worth the same.
    I like Nellie, it's fun, but your statement sounds like someone who hasn't played a lot of EMs.

    I strongly disagree but that's just my opinion. Just like you have your own different opinion.

    I've played a lot of EM's but probably not nearly as many as you. Many are fun. But they do not play as fast and lively as WNBJM, they do not have call outs or dynamic sound packages, they are not as bright, they do not have a high score LCD, and they do not have early as much code as WNBJM. There's a lot more to getting a high score then keeping the ball alive. You can keep it alive for a long time and not score jack if you don't know what you are doing and you are not making shots.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Opinions can't be wrong. I like Nellie (of course would never pay anywhere close to asking for it but that's neither here nor there).
    If you think Nellie has more "code" than almost every 1970s Gottlieb EM, I really don't know what to tell you. Nellie is shallower than almost any other 1970s EM I can think of.
    I'm glad you like Nellie, but you really need to play some quality EMs in the situation you described - with friends, over drinks, competitvely - before you make statements that make absolutely no sense. Playing one ball on a target alpha at a show and walking away really isn't the same thing.
    I'll give you the sound and LCD screen and that it's "brighter" but I guess I don't care about that stuff when I'm playing that style of game. I will see your "strongly disagree" and raise it with a "times two."
    "one of the best four player ever"....man...you realize you can buy a Bow and Arrow or Jungle Queen for 500 bucks and have a much better game than Nellie, right? If not a unique experience and interesting hybrid, which is what you are paying for and getting with a Nellie.
    This isn't to insult you or call you an idiot. I just think you are missing out on dozens if not HUNDREDS of great games out there. Or maybe you just like the novelty that is the total package of Nellie. But man, there are so many fantastic older games of this style.

    I'll keep an eye out for some of those that you mentioned. Sounds like they are really good. The biggest problem I always have is there are not a lot of people with those types of games and often when you do see one it's from playing 100%. I've really enjoyed playing several different EM's at shows with some friends though.

    Honestly if Nordman is not going to see this project through then it just needs to be scrapped. I'm not excited at all about another designer taking over the project even if they follow Nordman's design plans before he went to Deeproot.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    It's hard for me not to have the same feeling.
    Elivra 3 was never actually announced by Stern, right?

    Dennis, Greg, and Cassandra announced it at the end of last years TPF talk and even asked someone from stern if it was OK to tell everyone before they did. I forgot who they asked but that seemed pretty much announced to me.

    If it's another super LE money grab and it doesn't have Dennis finishing the layout then I'm not really interested. I'll wait like I did on BM66 and see how it shakes out. If it turns out good I can always get a premium a couple of years after the launch. I'm not an Iron Maiden fan at all but it with Keith designing sounds more appealing at the moment.

    Quoted from Sinestro:

    From what’s been posted here, Dennis fished it some time ago.

    Maybe a design was finished but the designer needs to be there to make tweaks and adjustments on the first prototype games and see things properly into the start of production if we hope to have anything as smooth and polished as Scared Stiff.

    Dennis not working there is a very bad omen for this game in my opinion.
