Quoted from epthegeek:
Who is this 'we' you're talking about? I don't really care about any of those things.
Agreed, I don't want any of those things, they don't matter to me.
Quoted from Potatoloco:
Honestly, I just wish Stern would release their own promo video. I'd rather get a first look with a clean cut video package than just a reveal stream. And this is coming from a partnered Twitch streamer.
Naw, I love the Dead Flip streams of the new games. You get to see it in the same environment that you would at a bar or a friends house, people having fun.
I don't need a sanitized marketing video, I want actual people enjoying the game (or not).
Groot is supposed to be big, everything about this is great. I wish there were some stuff from the second movie, but this is a great package so far.
Have I mentioned I'm excited?
I think you are wrong here, because I know I can personally identify the scores from the majority of marvel movies, especially avengers and guardians.
Marvel is my star wars, I don't actually think star wars is as fantastic as everyone makes it out to be.
Quoted from tbanthony:
Pro looks promising; now its all about the code and use of movie video. I do with it covered both movies; more for purposes of LCD content than needing more playfield content.
Yeah, I'm feeling the Pro. If I put 50 games on it and love it, I might make it my first NIB. It's gotta really grab me though gameplay wise, there are a bunch of games less than $5k that I haven't owned.
Quoted from EchoVictor:
The Milano is blue and orange in the movies. Star-Lord even says so during the Kyln escape. Only gold on its exterior was in the artist's rendering shown a page or two ago.
It might look slightly gold in that pic I posted but it's orange. Blue/Orange would have been a great color scheme I think for the Armor. Maybe something for me to do if I actually pick up this game.
For better or worse, the Good-Better-Best model of sales is really popular right now, not just in pinball.
It's pretty standard to position offerings that way. Not saying I think it's perfect within pinball, just saying that it's pretty normal these days.
Quoted from Who-Dey:
Oh ok my bad. This game will look good when people start powder coating the armor for sure.
I could have worded my question better.
Looks like it isn't possible anyway.
Quoted from Robertstone0407:
Orange and blue can't really be done cause the mesh will be a shade of green.
Makes sense. The nebula look is still very cool.
Saw the new Thor movie earlier today, it's a great addition to the MCU.
Got me completely and totally psyched for the Guardians pin, even more than I already was.
No shame in giving your partner exactly what they want, especially in a huge expensive luxury item.
It's a family purchase, everyone should be able to get something they want out of it.
How does it work with digital actors like Rocket and Groot? Would Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper have to sign off on having film clips of Rocket and Groot on the screen? Not talking about audio, just video clips.
I think I gather from all the other licensing talk that for someone like Starlord to be on screen, Chris Pratt would have to sign off on it. Does anyone know how that works with CGI actors? Is it just Disney that has to sign off on it?
Pin2k had a much higher chance of being a pile of junk.
I know spike scares people, but Stern didn't bottle up some mystical infinity stone in these things.
Thanks for the stream Dead Flip!
It was cool to confirm that the layout is good. I just hope we see some movement on the code. I want to buy this game badly, but can’t until I see a complete package.
Quoted from Who-Dey:
Lol, I’ve never played Golden Tee believe it or not but I love a good golf video game. I would like to try it sometime to see how much I like it.
Golden Tee is a game where you see who can hit the control panel the hardest without breaking their wrist.
And loser of every third hole buys a round of shots.
Quoted from Who-Dey:
Is it any better than a good golf game on a console or a computer though? I know it’s very popular and I’m wondering why? I’ve seen people play it but never really paid any attention to it before. What’s the big attraction to it?
It's a decent game, I'm not super into golf games so I don't really have anything to compare it to console or PC wise.
I more enjoy the social aspect of it than the actual gameplay. I know some people who do take it seriously though and will only play at bars with the most current years game, etc...
I think this year Stern has been building out their ability to better manage code life cycle. They've made some good hires of competent people who can help right the ship as far as code goes, but it does take time.
I fear they have a lot of technical debt that needs to be worked through, which takes raw hours. Outsourcing could be an option, but it would require them to have the software dev process properly set up to realize any actual gains.
Speaking of Guardians... The first trailer for Infinity War just dropped.
The Guardians show up at the end.
I'm listening to the call outs with pinball browser, they basically recorded the dialogue from the entire movie.
There are several variants of bobbiby bo bo, all are hilarious. I don't have a pinball browser license so I can't export them, but they are worth listening to. They are under Requests 849, 850, 853, 856.
Quoted from camcamaro1991:
respectfully I disagree, the "voice over" is awful, Its so bad I don't even find it remotely funny
I find bobbity bo to be hilarious, I pretty much agree with your assessment of the rest.
If I were Stern I wouldn't be paying the voice people until they rerecorded Ronan, Yondu, and some of the Rocket lines.
I got to play Guardians today! Badbrick and I went and checked it out. It was still on the pre-callout code 0.6whatever.
The game shoots and feels really nice. The artwork is fantastic. Christopher Franchi did a great job bringing it all to life. The ramps are super satisfying, and the Rocket kickback is thrilling/scary every time it fires. It comes back so fast! It's very reminiscent of the Yagov kickback on F-14.
Does the code need work, absolutely, but it still works really well even on this early code. If they keep improving the code like I hope they will, this is going to be a great game.
I was worried that playing it would completely disappoint me and turn me off from buying it, but that's so far from the case.
If I end up buying GotG I'm going to write my own superfan edition of the code using MPF.
Edit: Just to be clear I doubt I can do better than Stern, it would just be for fun. There are a lot of people on fiverr who can do impressions of actors though....
I'm pretty excited about the new song additions! Keep on this path so I can buy the game in February.
