New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
Some people prefer the original incandescent lighting or being able to set up their own custom lighting. Some also prefer the original electronics as well. And from what I have seen, tho original play fields, if you can get a good one, will probably hold up better in the long run.
Quoted from CaptainNeo:
MB is one of those games that has cute toys, nice humor, but very very very easy. The 3rd time i've ever played the game, I got to the ending, twice in the same game. I was bored already and only played it 3 times in my whole life. MB is one of those games that is great to play at someone elses house.
To be fair, we're not dealing with a bunch of great players here. It may be a perfect game for somebody with a lot of money, but not much experience playing pinball.
Quoted from spinal:
2. If improved code is written for MBr (and if most of us in the community agree it is actually much better), this will provide another incentive to buy MBr above the original.
Oh yeah? I read where they were working on rewriting and updating code for existing games. But that was over three years ago...
Quoted from pinlawyer:
I have a AFMrLE. It looks superb. It plays not even close to the original. The flippers don't feel like WMS. The screen looks a little cartoony. I really wish I could have the best of both worlds. But I can't.
And I have to agree with this. AFMr is an amazing looking game. But once I started flipping, the only urge I had was to turn it off and walk away.
Quoted from fosaisu:
I’ll bet you do.
Glad to see you’re back on Pinside for the holidays!
Thanks man! I was lurking in and out over the last couple months but really got a lot more done not being so involved here. All it took was noticing my BSD was in serious need of shopping out, and I knew no way did I want it down for a long time. Now it's good as new!
Quoted from whthrs166:
I would not have had a chance to buy my MM original if it wasn't for the remakes. I couldn't afford a $12k-$18k game. Instead I was able to pick up a real nice one with lots of mods for $7k . I also found a nice CCC for a great price with lots of extras.(thanks Kim) The manufacturing of the remakes creates opportunity for folks to buy an original (at a good price) or remake NIB. This is a win/win in my book because I also bought an AFMr LE. This is a game that I have been pursuing for a long time but could not find an original that wasn't trashed or at a decent price. So I can't imagine anyone not approving of the Remake initiative!
I totally agree. It allows those that want a great well built classic game at a fairly reasonable price to buy one. It also takes those that would be satisfied with a new knockoff out of that market. Win win for collectors of great Williams built machines.
