i'm there tomorrow also and will stream and take photos
Both are going to be great machines IMO.
Let’s not not forget these games are going to ship pretty much 6 months apart, by which Stern will probably have had another game out.
Quoted from bigd1979:
And? ..... look how much more there is to potc on the playfield and code wise when done.....not even in the same boat. Not that means anything but sterm can pump out cookie cutterisk pins with standard code much easier than a newer/smaller company with much more complicated pins. I love all pinball but theres not much variation between stern pins anymore and once u own a few they all kinda feel the same over the past 3-4 years.
I've played both dood.
the point I was making for those who are considering either that there will be more choice not which is better.
Having played GOTG in my view it plays nothing like MET. I also don't agree that all Stern's shoot the same. There are similarities but I could argue that with nearly every pinball machine made. MET, TWD, GB, B66, SW shoot nothing like each other. Kiss and Aerosmith are often compared but when you play them they are completely different games. I know this is pinside but worth waiting until you play the game!
in my view GOTG and POTC are going to be great and very different games, which ever one you choose you will have a great game.
Quoted from jar155:
Filming without a press pass is technically not allowed at IAAPA unless you're under special circumstances (guest of a exhibitor or the show). It just happens that it's not always strictly enforced. There have been a few videos of GOTG, but not a flood of them.
I was walking about filming everything. Yes the rules say don't video, but can't see how they can stop it, everyone was videoing and taking pictures!
