Finally in the cool kid club. What a fantastic game.
Just wanted to chime back in on this thread. I’ve owned GOT for 6 weeks now and can say that GOT does indeed kick ass. A day does not go by where it’s unplayed. I find it to be the most balanced game I’ve played in so many areas including: difficulty, flow vs. shot making, variety of modes, game length, wizard modes, and the list goes on. Such an awesome game.
Quoted from Spiderpin:
Here's an update: I sux at this game, but refuse to lower my sword. Can't seam to make it to HOTK no matter what house I start with. I don't use Tyrell or Marsell because I want my daughter to keep her name on for high score. Every time I have three houses and need just one shot to get my fourth house I'll miss the shot and hit the stand up target and drains. Got so pissed yesterday that I started watching the blu ray DVD's of The Game of Thrones that I received for my B-Day. Like that's going to help me. After two episodes I felt like I should be the hand of the King. No such luck, but I did get and new Grand Champion score. I've got to do it within the next four days. That's my goal for HOTK. If not I'm John Snow and we know what he is.
Do yourself a favor and watch chuckwurt’s tutorial on the SDTM stream. Your understanding of the machine and strategies will completely change for the better. I’m currently re-watching because there’s so much depth and breadth to this game that I forgot was there. I believe there are 4(?) parts to this tutorial.
P.S. GOT still kicks as much ass as the day I brought it home. What an amazing game.
Quoted from vbittnv:
I tried out a GOT pro as it was a great deal and I surprisingly fell in love with it and had an opportunity to "upgrade" to a premium. Did the swap and I still liked the game but the upper play field does slow things down and I just didn't love it.. I tried as the light show is incredible ( and blinding) on the premium/LE but overall It just didnt have the flow the pro does... so I sold the premium and just re-bought a pro and it ain't going anywhere! It replaced tron as my favorite game and that says something. Such an amazing game that has yet to get old... and games get old to me quick.
Hey! I’m the guy who bought your pro I’ve bought several games from people and I could tell that you were still in love with that machine when I was loading it in the van. Glad to hear you got another (I like the pro much better too).
Quoted from vbittnv:
I was temped to come steal it back!! LOL!! Kinda serous! But I'm glad you are enjoying it too!.. its such a special machine!
I don’t doubt it one bit. If I came home and found you wheeling it out of the house I’d just say “yeah I kinda figured this would happen”. If I see you at Expo, first couple of beers are on me.
Quoted from PinballCharlie:
I'm developing a rather "out of the box" 3D lighted sling blade mod to bring more of the map elements from the GoT intro sequence into the pin. I haven't finalized painting, materials or lighting yet, but I am close. The mod will be called Wolf vs. Lion and it modeled to represent the cities of Winterfell and King's Landing (I'm a huge fan of the books, series and pinball machine
I was hoping to snag a couple testers to see how these things hold up. Specifically, I am looking for a Premium and Pro version tester; someone who plays their pin quite a bit to give these a good test.
Installation is simple - remove the old sling blades, replace the bottom GI lamp under the sling with the included Matrix connector, connect the new sling and install the new sling blades.
I already have an LE tester, but if you have a Premium or Pro and you want to give me some feedback on the fit, finish and durability (and can take a few pics), please PM me and I will get this package out to you!
Cool. I have a pro and would love to give it a shot.
So pumped about this. I just got done playing a game on my pro and saw the GOT kicks ass thread was en fuego..
Quoted from Jediturtle:
Haha...nice! I just finished my second one...the other "shortcut" method, Stark. Now, I'm still keeping an open mind about it not being too overpowered, but wow! I hit Iron Throne on ball one (full disclosure it was actually an extra ball, but still). Beat Iron Throne for the first time (holy crap that was cool!). Got to Hand of the King a second time, and ended up two modes away from the Throne a second time. I'm freaking exhausted but it was fun! I obliterated any score I've ever gotten...almost 28 billion. 25.5 billion of that was IT. So much fun, but I still feel like I'm cheating by not actually fighting the dragons. Two houses down, five to go. No more shortcuts now!
Man I love this game![quoted image][quoted image]
Holy shitballs! 28 bil.?
I tell you what, this code update just vaulted this already great game into a top ten GOAT. I’ve owned my pro for a year and a half which for me is usually byebye time for most games. I still get a rush from this game like no other. The only way mine leaves any time soon is if it gets swapped out for a premium. Great job Dwight and crew.
