    Thought Jack said they only do family friendly title's.....I don't see how godfather falls into that category.......curious to see what they came up with....

    Rumor is the pin is based off just the 3rd movie and will feature a 10” mini LCD.

    Panzer Freak with the jokes!

    I LIKE IT!!!

    That is a pretty hilarious idea. "And we got Sofia Coppala's sister to do callouts!"

    There's clearly an established license market for movie properties like this. You pay in, you get the package of assets. Pinball, slot machine, it's all the same to them. Commercial gaming license, pay up, get the likeness.

    Sadly, this is absolutely true. And a lot of it comes from the licensing expo that they have in Vegas where all the "new" properties for the year are bought and sold.

    https://www.licensingexpo.com/en/home.html

    Almost as sad a situation as the songs in commercials where there's obviously a database that advertisers search by keyword for songs to put in their commercials. If the words match, they put it in, regardless of the song's original intent or meaning. Case in point: Instacart's commercial where they use the song No Diggity. The line they obviously searched for was "bag it up"(as it happens at the exact moment the bag falls into the shopping cart animation), but what they don't realize is that the song is actually about a bunch of pimps who want to have sex with each other's hookers/strippers and the "bag it up" line refers to them having to wear condoms.

    Both situations are great examples of the declining state of creativity in this country. Don't even get me started on all the hexagons I see everywhere in everybody's company logos and signs...

    Those that know the meaning of Go Diggity should appreciate Instacart's use more. Brilliant IMO

    Can the gameplay and rules be much better than GnR, at the very least? Theme doesn’t matter nearly as much as the those.

    The game probably starts with you choosing one out of 30 characters that are in the entire trilogy.

    If it was a more generic mafia game with a Godfather layer of paint, choosing which of the 5 families to play as could be a fun player choice. Could even offer 5 player play so everyone has a family

    I'm seeing a lot of people saying that theme doesn't matter, just as long as the shots are good and gameplay is solid.

    At the end of the day, gameplay is all that matters and any decent coder can make any game phenomenal to play without the ball ache of licensing restrictions (see AFM, MM, FT... and hundreds of others).

    If you prefer gameplay over theme, then let's drop the themes already.

    Original IPs are much cheaper, have more creative ideas, are much more fun to play.. etc, etc.

    Yeah but people don’t want to drop 10k plus on an unlicensed theme that they will maybe really like only after they’ve had it for a while and the newness wears off

    Remakes are banking on the well deserved reputation of a handful of classics (lots of unlicensed games few want, few unlicensed games many want)

    People open their wallets for themes that make them nostalgic for their childhood and/or they think it will resonate with their family.

    Most people buying pins aren’t pinheads who’d be willing to try everything.

    And while some licenses may be restrictive, look at a license like Godzilla and the fun they were able to have with that. It’s more of an issue of choosing a good licensor vs debating if original themes are “better”

    (And that’s without getting into how licenses help provide a ton of content for the LCD screen and some nostalgic tunes that will lure people in)

    I play the heck and enjoy the heck outta my Baywatch and Big Hurt. Favorite game and proof that theme means jack and squat to me.

    Unless it's Wizard of Oz or Toy Story 4. Those are too baby/girly for my tastes.

    Quoted from ray-dude:

    It’s actually about Godfather Pizza

    I hope it's a nod to when Chunk ate his weight at Godfather Pizza and we're getting Goonies.

    I own a lot of games where the theme doesn't mean anything to me. I like playing a lot of games where the theme doesn't really appeal to me (Rush for example), and theres games that have my dream theme that I hate (ghostbusters). All that being said, I'm under no delusion that theme doesn't matter to me. Yeah, I'd buy a cheap big hurt, no big deal, but when I'm dropping 10k I expect (and hope) that its a theme that appeals to me. I'm not spending big money on a game unless it has both good gameplay and a theme that I at least like somewhat. If the best game ever was My Little Pony I don't think I'd be buying it.

    Why stop at just the Godfatther theme? let's go really big and integrate JAWS as well......we can have a lower playfield where the "Luca Brasi" hole takes you to 'sleep with the fishes........'

    But really, how Epic would the Fredo and/or Luca Brasi drains be? I can think of dozens of great ways to integrate this theme. some kind of reward/risk where you can risk what you earned for a chance at double points.....and 'offer you cannot refuse'...

    Quoted from SLAMT1LT:

    Gotta be a codename for something else. This would be a very bad idea. If you want a theme with a strong Italian connection... just make the Rocky Legacy.

    Maybe it's actually the Dogfather, a Snoop Dogg theme?

    Cannoli and Pasta multiball are going to be amazing. For Pasta multiball you need to collect the ingredients on the insert targets around the playfield. During the multiball you need to collect 10 meatballs to score a super jackpot.

    Neat. Was this a Spanish manufacturing who built games with Gottlieb parts? Sorta like how Sonic used Williams parts?

    That might have been Maresa? I'm not sure. Petaco / Recel certainly made games that copied Gottliebs in many ways, but not as directly as Maresa titles.
    I actually just stumbled on that Godfather image today because I got the book Bola Extra: La historia del Pinball en España

    I’m waiting on this theme as well .I do know of a pinball manufacturer that is presently tossing the idea around at their meetings .We shall see

    #75 1 day ago

    IMO not the best theme for pinball and then Jack drops the mic and snags Godfather 3 for the license. Good luck Eric

    They need to bring LTG back to the family.
