Quoted from iceman44:

So I’m MUCH more confident than Kaneda re Alien and PB because I told him
He and I have a long history with Alien, from day one, and I asked him to keep it quiet and
Then he went off like a monkey F ing a football
He saw a post from Great Britain and said oh look it’s already out there so I’m running with it. Yes he relied on what I told him to keep quiet so I’ll out myself
But hey, whatever, we are all gonna find out soon enough
PB has the license, I believe they are making the first batch overseas AND
Negotiating here in the US to manufacture games here. You all know who the potential parties are
Bottom line, it’s boutique pinball, and there is many a slip between the cup and the lip.
It’s in motion, will it get from A to B?
Find out soon enough.
When it comes out, Williams style, I’ll be pumping up one of the best overall games I’ve ever played

So, what you're saying is:

If he is wrong then he's an idiot because he didn't listen and wait.

If he's right you're the real awesome guy because you knew first.

Does this sum it up correctly?

Quoted from iceman44:

I’m saying he can blame his prediction woes all on me if it doesn’t happen. He’s right or wrong based on what I told him. Period
Who do you think he’s F ing talking about “outing”? I’m telling you now. I’ve got the text chain too. We are on the same page. He was the dummy that backed off
Primarily, because what’s the big deal? It’s not a meeting at the Trump tower with the Russians
Is it that hard to believe that a game so good, basically finished, will have huge demand when remade?

I'm just teasing you.

But yes, it's pretty hard to believe this thing is real, at least not with a lot of work/ alterations, for usability, manufacturing and legal reasons.

Porting the code might be harder then redoing everything from scratch (with the given assets) to make it work on CGCs System.

Quoted from benheck:

CGC's updated dots are amazing looking.

Almost as good as AP's LCD you've wanted to say...

#405 2 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Yeah this unholy alliance is bound to work out for both of them.

Last thing I've heard was that you're invited...

Go for it and enlighten 'em.

That ought to be funny (for the listener at least).

#417 2 years ago

TWIP lists this CGC Remake in it's April Fools headline.

Look guys... This isn't going to happen.

Let it go...

#425 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Once again, it’s happening.
As to who builds them for USA, that’s not settled yet as far as I know
All you naysayers and doubters, take advantage of me.
I’ll wager $500 or whatever you want and take all comers!

I'm not a naysayer, but besides the felt business joint there are enough other problems you have to adress to get this game made...

It might be better to start pretty much from scratch and use the general playfield layout and assets than to port soft- & hardware, reengineer stuff to get it more relieable and maybe get into legal issues.

That said yes, I think they're looking into their options to get some of their money back, but that may also be 'licensing' their general layout, assets and theme to someone like AP on a per game basis.

If they would redo this, put mustache Alien somewhere as well as some rubberduckeys or a monkey, that'd be an incredible hit guaranteed.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Yeah that’s sick. I’ve always thought to myself “damn, if only
This cupholder had a light in it.”
Wait...no I haven’t! You people are all insane!

It is, but it's still awesome.

As a german we're said to have the tendency to mark our territory with a blanket...
...well if the Cup holder would be lit green with no drink and Switch to red with a drink in it, this would be the perfect 'get lost' sign.

And I wouldn't have to take a blanket to the Bowling alley anymore.

#475 2 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Fortunately, there are pretty much ZERO consequences around here ever for being wrong so it's not like I'm risking much.

Well you COULD take Icemans bet so there'd be a $500 consequence...

#479 2 years ago
Quoted from JodyG:

What about Deeproot....there are hiring all kinds of electrical engineers right now.

They have enough legal issues to deal with thanks to JPop, I don't think they wnat more of 'em.

#483 2 years ago
Quoted from JodyG:

As a contract manufacturer, the legal issues wouldn't fall on them... It would fall on Pinball Brothers. If you are building a house and you get arrested, the builder doesn't get arrested too.

You really think pinside would care to differenciate?

#501 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Well you are gonna look awful foolish after running your BIG F ing mouth non stop!


I like you Iceman, but with the "How shitty are Beatles sales"-Thread, flaming the game and then buying one... and now calling other people foolish I'm pretty sure thats an exact example what Levi is relating too when he talks about that being wrong has no consequences. (Wich is an extremely nice way of him to phrase it.)

That said:
I'd like Alien to be remade. I don't think it'll happen but I'll happily be wrong.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Well, I'm not one to gloat, but looks like iceman44 owes me a nice big bottle of Woodford Reserve.
How are we gonna get this done? NYC liquor prices being what they are it's probably gonna be around 70 bucks.
Ice is an honorable man! (I hope)

You should drink it together.

And don't splash it on Tim.

Quoted from delt31:

it will feel and likely play differently for the reasons I mentioned already.

How do you "play" a lit side art?

#766 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

If they don't include the screen in the pf, one could argue you would play it a little differently b/c I'm usually looking at that screen too while playing vs having to look up (let alone it wouldn't be nearly as nice without it).

Noone said anything about tearing that screen out of the PF.
That has nothing to do with changing the cab.

#770 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

"Dude".... I'm not sure who you're arguing with on this. Just saw your reply and the guy from Germany too - not sure who you guys are talking to bc this is one of the dumbest things I've read in a long time. Continue arguing with yourselves bc it's funny for me to! Thanks guys
Alien and potentially new alien via Williams should play the same.

Of course we can end it.
You're wrong!

#778 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

Germany - guess what?
You're wrong.

Ok, I take that back:
You're wrong AND you're racist!

(Wich is kind of funny, since you're posting in a dutch forum.)
