Starlord’s mask eyes being lit inserts is genius.

#52 2 years ago
Quoted from Crile1:

Not being hateful, just observant, but doesn't the color scheme and especially the Stern logo animation at the end look an awful lot like TNA?

They both copied Far Cry Blood Dragon logo which came out in 2012-2013.

If you really want to go down the rabbit hole, look up neon noir or outrun art style.

So the hype is real?!!

Oh totally. Nothing is original anymore it seems.

Quoted from Frax:

Yeah...I don't really care about the *function*...as long as it's not just another bash toy with a magnet in front of it, anyways. Groot was a throw-away character inserted for comedic effect. The only time he actually did something important, he 'died'. I don't personally care to see Baby Groot *anywhere*, so here's hoping that GOTG2 isn't in there, because I'm sure if it is, clips of it will be all over the bloody place. Whatever...Stern's gonna do what will make them money, so they're obviously tapping into the fact that most people did like the character....probably because they can relate with being dumber than a sack of hammers and one-dimensional. I just don't get at all why Marvel decided to treat the character that way.

QQ. I gave you a fair shot to have a reasonable explanation...you didn't, and I don't agree with it, so eat a thumb.

But GOTG 2 was a way better movie than the first. And the music was better.

Must admit was hoping for lots of baby Groot quotes - 'I am Groot'

Quoted from MikeTangoIndia:

I personally dig the style. I'm cautiously optimistic about this game.

Code looks complete to me.

#60 2 years ago

I wonder if those are inline drops or a Danesi lock. Either way, good stuff. I freaking love inline drops.

#61 2 years ago
Quoted from thirdedition:

Yes I absolutely love that art style also.

#62 2 years ago

Who is doing the code?

I mean...I thought it was AWESOME that they pulled in Ego as a character, even if the whole "he's your dad" thing was kind of silly. Character development was much better in the second movie, for sure....except Scoot.

Well, this game has been in development for ages for maybe it was too hopeful to expect GOTG 2 to be in the game.

Guess all will be revealed tomorrow.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

I can just tell dude!

Yep its so great i cancelled my potcle preorder and paid in full for a 9k gotgle. Cant wait as i can tell its gonna be the greatest game on plant earth just from the sneak peak. Best toys and code in all of pinball.

Huh, I felt the opposite. Second one didn't live up to the first for me. Still enjoyed it, just not quite the same magic second time around.

#69 2 years ago

Does everyone realize those pictures are just screen shots of a short video? Groot might just be a close up of a little toy.

#70 2 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

What's wrong, jgentry? Sorry, but Groot was a much better character in the first movie....hopefully this game ignores GOTG 2, because Baby Groot was nothing more than a moronic butt of all the jokes. At ANY rate, Groot was easily the worst part of both movies. Would rather see physical Drax, Gamora, Starlord figures than a giant stupid tree head.
Magnets is great. Been way too long since Stern has used magnets without cores or plates over them.... here's hoping.
*Edit* Hell, I'd even take Yondu over Groot.

I know.. can u believe it? Stern pins are amazing. Lower half the playfield is almost identical to met.

That’s because it’s a MET retheme. It is Borgs favorite game after all.

That's the spirit!

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Does look pretty similar to MET layout, but with Adams Family central playfield magnets. The Groot head might go where sparky is? Bash it then shoot into mouth, with subway to the scoop?

#77 2 years ago

I heard there is only going to be one flipper on the pro...

#78 2 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

3 flipper seems to be out of the question too. But maybe mini-playfield?

There is at least a third flipper

#79 2 years ago

So is it definitely a Borg game?

Yes

there is even an 80s text generator to ape this look.

IMO they (Stern) used a pre-made macro for that logo. There's no way someone handmade it. Looks ultra generic.

Here are the rumors I've heard:

- The game is rumored to be shipping in November
- It is rumored the game will be at IAAPA in Orlando which takes place November 13-17th
- Rumors that John Borg designed it and Christopher Franchi is the artist
- Rumored to have two flippers (not three as originally posted)
- Rumored to have two ramps (not three as originally posted)
- Rumored to have a large Groot head that is possibly like Rudy on Funhouse and possibly eats pinballs
- Deleted (originally "Rumored that an upper flipper is used to hit the Groot head")
- Rumored to have one of the best toppers ever
- Rumored to see the full reveal tomorrow

I like pretty much all of those rumors

Really that's enough for genius? It seems like a no brainer to me. Let the hype continue I guess.

#86 2 years ago

the irrational exuberance is depressing.

finish a game. then i'll get excited.

#87 2 years ago

This is close to a grail pin for me. As excited as I want to be about this, I'm very skeptical... of stern release yet another "half baked" game.

Or they could totally redeem themselves on this release by listening to what all their customers have been saying about quality and code issues (which I have a hard time believing they will do).

Sorry I sound so pessimistic, but history tends to repeat itself. I truly hope this game is awesome

#88 2 years ago
Quoted from Soulrider911:

Every pinball machine is awesome. New pinball is awesome. A growing and healthy hobby is even more awesome.

Tons to be happy about!

Have you played South Park?

#91 2 years ago

Yup. Would I own it? No. But pinball is awesome. It's impossible not to have fun playing pinball.

It is if you're a Pinside hipster. They love to tell you how they walked away from a game "after one ball".

#93 2 years ago

@mschonbrun let me clarify yes I'm with you I LOVE pinball every game is awesome in its own way. But when we only get very few games released a year, and those games are released with half baked code, ghosting, cabinet issues... that is not awesome. That's all I was saying.
Maybe a better adjective would be "I truly hope this game is complete"

So the pro has no magnets, only 2 flippers, and a head that is there but doesn't eat pinballs??

Which is why you gotta fight hate with love. New pinball is great.
