Quoted from Ecw0930:

Hello everyone. I’m seriously considering purchasing a GOTG but with the kids in the house i need to know if it has profanity in it, and if it can be turned off.
I appreciate your help as I searched and can’t seem to find it.
Thanks y’all.

Lines are taken mainly from the movie. During the game, I recall Nebula calling Gamora "stupid" and Drax says to Ronin "You killed my wife. You killed my daughter" but it's rather tame, especially compared to other games. I guess it depends on whether or not your kids have seen the Guardians movies. If you all are fans and don't mind this style of humor and sarcasm, the game should be very enjoyable. I have three between 10 and 15 years old and never once did I have any concerns while we play the game. Don't know if you can filter for family mode because we never needed to. Anyone else recall?

No it doesn’t. The Cleland sound mod doesn’t either and makes the game even better. Get it.

GotG is family friendly. You'll also want to install the Cleland sound mod.

#4705 10 days ago

thank you for your responses guys!

If I end up getting GOTG I'll get into the mods and check out the Cleland sound mod.

It's between this and Star Trek. Thoughts on that?

#4706 10 days ago

I love our Guardians, but it is a pretty tough shooter IMO. If you are looking for a more friendly shooter I'd say Stark Trek (I'm assuming Stern) would probably be the better way to go.

A lot of this is personal preference of course. If possible I would suggest you get some games on both and see what you like.

I've had a good amount of game time on both and I like them both a lot. I probably petted star trek this list time, but first time preferred gotg.

Thinking more for my kids too. Only 10 and 6 but enjoy playing. Not to score but more for the lights and action.

They are similar. Star trek has a 3rd flipper for the warp ramp which is great! But a bland dmd. Gotg is only 2 flippers but the monitor is read of dmd.....

So language is kid friendly.... You guys that have game time, thoughts on playing being more kid friendly?

Agreed, GOTG is the better pin by far, but its not easy, those ramps are long and narrow. Star Trek is far easier but gets old quickly as all the modes feel the same.

Your kids might find some shots on GotG hard, but they'll probably have more fun locking balls in Groot's mouth and getting multiball.

I think so! But also would like crashing the ship in star trek. Both are great toys.

As long as there aren't and damnits or what the hells in gotg it's definitely a contender.

Quoted from marsup:

I tried to message Stern about it (there was a story with somme Gotg pinball machine pic...)
I take that for an almost yes
[quoted image]

Are you using the cleland sound mod? It is a must have for GOTG. However, with a code update the current cleland mod probably wouldn't work.

Mine is also all the way, and still 3 to 1 ball losses. I had an epic game last night. 5 bil+ score and save Xandar. My previous best game was 2.4 bil... Game was about 45 mins long......... And I shook it to death anytime it went anywhere near the left outlane

Hello all, I'm new to the club after picking up a Premium over the weekend!

I'm ordering a Cliffy lane protector, and there are 2 different versions. Can anyone post a picture of your cliffy-protected lane and let me know which version you got, so I can figure out which version I need? These are my first lane protectors, so I'm not really confident on which version I will need by looking at the pictures on Cliffy's site.

Thanks!

Yes it is a must have Never played with the original one, i put the cleland mod as soon as i got the pinball
If there is a last code update, i'm sure cleland will include his mod to it.

No problem i was looking for it too...

What do you think about art blades on the GOTG pinball ? I really hesitate between mirror or art for the inner blades...

If you take a look at the build date on the back of your machine and just email Cliff, he should be able to get you the right one and is typically very quick to reply: crinear@comcast.net

#4723 6 days ago

What exactly does the cleland sound mod contain? More music etc ? I hadn’t heard of this since I’m new to these newer pins these days lol.

The stock pinball machine that Stern developed only has about two licensed songs in it and all of the voice callouts are fake (recorded by voice actors). The "cleland mod" doesn't change any of the rules or game functionality, but injects several more songs and replaces all of the fake voice callouts with the actual ones for the movie.

Basically a must have. Head on over to this thread to learn more and PM him on Pinside for a link and download instructions. It's very simple.

I think that it may have the "You said it yourself bitch, we're the Guardians of the Galaxy" line when you complete Save Xandar but the odds of your children ever getting anywhere near there are pretty slim based on what you said.

I have this one in my game.
Apparently my game was Mezal Mods game he used to prototype his mods (I’m the 3rd HUO owner). It’s overloaded with mods (I had to remove a bunch because it was overwhelming).

I’d try Stern or your distributor as the game is not archived yet on Stern’s site. So parts should be available.

I have the opportunity to buy a NIB GOTG LE. So was in the box since end 2017? Dont know when it was produced but think all LE were produced in one batch?

The playfield quality lottery with GotG LE of that time, are issues to be expected like pooling or chipping or was the early GotG free of this? So anything I should have a look at? Also on the fence of a protector. Have several pins with them but read that for GotG people are remving it since it influences pay to much. Does GotG have a lot of airballs-> dimpling. I dont mind (some) dimpling as long as it doesnt look like the moon ....

Thanks for any advise

If its an LE, then yes, it was made in 2017. If it's still in its box, then I would HIGHLY doubt the seller is going to let you open it to look at the playfield and other things before buying it. The value of a NIB goes down once that box is opened.

If they do let you, or if it's already been opened, then just look around the posts for pooling on the playfield. I can't recall what other issues may have existed on the first production run (mine was a 2019 build). Mine does get a fair amount of airballs and has some pretty major dimpling after 2K plays or so.

Installed a pinball life volume /headphone plate today. Love it so far. Added a Walkman decal over the plate.
