Quoted from delt31:

Do you own alien? Just curious b/c you seem very opinionated about how it plays vs other games.
I actually own the game and can confirm it plays and feels different than my other games and would def not feel the same if it was in a WB williams build.
Prob should own the game before being so definitive but well, that ship has sailed.

Needing to become a proficient Alien tech is the only reason I started coming to pinside. Yes I own too many games, my apologies. Unfortunately this is about the only game I have encountered to actually Not Have A Workshop Manual? ... WTF?

My experience clearly differs to yours in some way or another. Doesn't feel significantly different to nudge to me at all, no different than any other monsterously heavy widebody. Matter of opinion, obviously.

Yeah it is very different to nudge than a cardboard stern cabinet, of course, but to me it nudges with the same degree of stability as my TZ ... I am at least comparing similar weight machines.

I've got mine next to WOZECLE, and across from my TZ. They all feel "heavy" when nudging, etc. and equally stable. I'd be curious how Alien would look and play in a Williams style widebody cab. Suspect pretty similar if all that changed was the cab. Don't really care, as I like mine, and wish others could get one..

I have never noticed Alien to be any more or less stable than my Twilight Zone.

His games list shows he owns Alien Star. Close enough?

Yeah I stopped updating that somewhere after 20... got a bit behind. Sorry.

If you want to play a game that is "heavy" to nudge, try a Whoa Nellie on it's crate, makes all others seem flimsy by comparison

It's getting closer to the end of the year. If I bet $500 on a new Alien being shipped this year, I'd be feeling pretty nervous...

I’d take that bet.

I'd take that 500$.

How about this scenario: American Pinball does the remake. They have experience with doing this on a small level with Magic Girl, CGC seems too busy, and DR has other plans. Makes sense for AP, since it would be a big win, and for Pinball Brothers to get it done in the US, where most customers live. Maybe someone already addressed this but I didn’t see it scanning through.

When Ferret came over to AP after working on Alien, I asked if that meant AP was picking up Alien production. Josh said no way, not happening.

So, no, AP isn't doing Alien according to Josh at AP.

Is there a link to the pre-order list?!

I hope Josh’s no actually meant yes...

Does Josh make business decisions?

Not that I'm aware of. Pinball Bros probably has some sort of nondisclosure, so the answer would likely be no from any manufacturer, and ask forgiveness later... "Maybe" and "I don't know" are interpreted as yes, so that would be a tough position to be in.

You're confusing something. It is Alien not Predator. But there you can get mixed up. A, P AvsP ....
