Quoted from ASOA:

Without a doubt we will have movie clips. AS was very first generation as far as new LCD integration by Stern. It will be more along the lines of Star Wars. Cut scenes and movie quotes will put this game over the top. Great theme Stern just needs to utilize it in this game.

I believe BM66 was the first. And that had live action tv clips. I like the animation in AS. It goes along with the ‘60s/‘70s artwork...kinda original Scooby Doo vibe.

For GOTG, I really wish the laser cut rails were for the LE. There’s just currently not enough extras on this one to warrant the $1200 price difference for the LE. ST LE has them...SW LE has them. Stern definitely isn’t going in the right direction with this decision

They have those...they’re called virtual pins

Quoted from jwilson:

Star Wars was much easier - those movies were made 30+ years ago, back when the studio owned everything.
GotG, being a modern Disney movie with modern likeness use contracts and every separate thing needing to be licensed individually, I'm betting there is a lot less video clips and speech in this game.

They are both Disney. Lucasfilm was purchased Disney in 2012. Disney is a HUGE pain to work with. I have two separate friends that own companies that have to deal with Disney for licensing , and both had said dealing with the Mouse is so much worse than LFL ever was. Doesn’t matter that SW is 40 now. It’s Disney. They don’t make things easy for ANY of their properties, which is a little surprising considering how long they’ve been around. But doesn’t mean the people in charge of those areas have been I guess.

I can’t speak for STERN in this matter. My point though is just because SW is 40 and GOTG is 3 (cinematically), wouldn’t make a difference.

Quoted from jar155:

Part of the reason Disney properties are so timeless and valuable is because they are very cautious and controlling of their brands. It's not fun for people to work with them, that's for sure, but it is more valuable to Disney to protect their value over the long term than what they can get by loosening the reigns for short term gains.
Licensing is super weird in the digital age too. There are so many more levels of likeness, distribution, and usage rights. I would hate having to work with licenses on a regular basis.

Timeless is one thing, and you can keep a strong brand, but trust me, with the stuff they pull (stuff completely unrelated to quality of items produced), they are one of the worst to deal with...which is truly a shame.

But anyway..back to GOTG!! YAY for the pop songs included!!! Now...to get the laser rails added to the LE!!

I still think they really missed out by not having metal ramps on the premium/LE powder coated Groot brown color. Would hold up better than the plastic and look like his vines.

Quoted from J85M:

I thought the narrator in SW is supposed to be Ackbar? isn’t the guy doing the voice work/narration on the pin the guy who does the voice work for Ackbar in Clone Wars?

Nope, not the same voice actor and no, he’s not trying to be Ackbar. He’s just suppose to be a unknown rebel commander/general.

What has happened to games like Earthshaker...White Water...Funhouse...etc, etc...you know ORIGINAL ideas. No licenses needed, just good old pinball. Everyone is strictly movies or bands or tv shows or some sort of intellectual property. I know there’s DI, but there are so few and far between... a shame really. What sounds like what can be a fun game is overshadowed by bad licensing decisions. From a business standpoint, less money for licensing equals more money in the pocket.

Sounds like it depends. If Stern incorporated the bad dialogue in with the video, it’s hosed. If it’s a separate track (pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease) then the sound could be replaced.
