Quoted from konghusker:

Guys that played this game, do you think it's worth selling a Metallica pro and tspp in order to fund an Le? I really want the game, but it's trading two for one basically. Curious on thoughts.

I'm probably a little bias because I've played it so many times at shows and had 3 visits to Level 257 (with no lines). I think it is a fantastic packed game that pulls you into it with the theatrical enhancements to pinball that JJP is known for. If you really like how your WOZ and TH pull you into the game, this one will likely do the same. (I have WOZ and TH also and love them.) It is progressing with more and more sounds and video as the code is progressing. There will be more voice call outs coming as they did a second recording session with the actor recently.

I really like MET and I have played it hundreds of times at locations, shows, etc.. I don't really care too much for TSPP. In the end, yes I would definitely go for it. Especially if you don't have pre-plans to sell it in a few months for something else. If WOZ and maybe TH are considered keepers for you, this would likely be the same. But ... as always, play it before you buy it. We all have different opinions and tastes.

I sold my rrwoz and getaway to pay for my Potc ce ,with all its features and innovations if you like the theme I don't think you can go wrong.

Two for one with good titles is rarely a good idea. I can't stand met, but tspp is a great machine. If you like them both, I'd keep them, save up and add jjpotc. If it was me, I'd dump met, keep tspp, and pay the balance for jjpotc.

Sold my Getaway and Banzai Run to fund Hobbit Smaug SE, never looked back!

Just wait and play it. For all we know it might not come out til next year. And like the hobbit, there could be major issues.
You will always be able to play somewhere before you buy it. And you might be able to buy used and save some money.
Don’t be in such a rush to buy something that isn’t even out yet.

Don't listen to that you know it's going to be sick just imagine stealing balls and treasure off your friends. Plus you want that brand new pinball smell. Just go for it.

Turns out the surprise will be new Hobbit code next week Friday (or maybe just JJP Live showing it)! Twitter is JJP Software for the earlier report.

Anyone else getting the feeling that POTC hype is rapidly running out of steam?

I’m almost to the point of zero excitement and I really really do want this machine.

#2068 1 year ago
Quoted from Psw757:

I’m almost to the point of zero excitement and I really really do want this machine.

This is just the pre-release Pinside excitement/rant/rave sequence. When the game comes out, it will reboot to a Pinside excitement/rant/issues/rave sequence. Predictions: the game will shoot up to the top 20 and likely remain there. Sales will be a bit slower and steady than Dialed-in, but they will be decent.

When I played this machine, I absolutely loved it. It's only the theme that holds me back. An original pirate theme would have secured a purchase from me. Just can't have Jonny staring at me in my gameroom. Just can't do it. Plus Stern already did it. I just can't wrap my head around the theme decision. Seems to be JJP biggest blunder to date.

You'd enjoy doing this at first, then when the new pin high wears off you'll regret it. If it were me I'd sell tspp and save up the rest and buy the LE.

It just feels like POTC continues to slog along. But in five weeks or less, complete games start shipping. Find one local to play or attend a nearby big pinball event. But see and play the final product first and if you still really like it, consider picking one up at your favorite distributor. By Dec they should be readily available. I'll bet somewhere along the journey, you'll fall in love, good vibes will be trending upwards and you and others will be excited to play JJPOTC Because the game is legit fun & challenging, not because of hype. True emotions from playing and observing the game will ignite the hype afterburners.

Hell yeah!!!! Can't wait.

#2074 1 year ago

I finally got to play this at Pintastic. Unfortunately, I find that the JJP games that are brought to most shows have their flipper power dialed down, so it makes it hard to get a good feel for the game. Still, I was very impressed, and it seemed like there was a lot going on on the playfield. I played one of the older prototypes with the 3 disks, but the disks didn't work very well. And, I really didn't pay attention to that mech that much because there was so much else to do. I think this is going to be a huge seller for JJP once people start getting their hands on it, and it gets set up properly.

Lol, I’m sure if the demand is there I can design your sign to say whatever you like! We aim to please.

Well tomorrow is July 1 and still no word on when production starts.

Me thinks August is now not likely, hope I’m wrong!

#2079 1 year ago
Quoted from musketd:

No. JJP Butch originally said August back in Spring, and it looks like he will win the production start date projections.

#2080 1 year ago

I hope Butch wins....Who has Sep? Oct?

#2081 1 year ago

JJP needs to do a fresh title and not a rehash of pirates or anothe lotr. Once they do that then will peek my interest plus I just don’t understand Eric’s thinking on this game he has divertors everywhere on this thing but none for the right ramp; that should have been one of the first things in the game; ohh well; hoping that the next game is cheaper and more original

Do you own any JJP games or have you every owned any?

I'd bet that the delays (whatever they are now) are driving Eric crazy.

I don’t understand the rationale for a diverter on the right ramp. What do you mean?

#2085 1 year ago

I'm finally ready for pirates to start shipping! I have renovated my back room.The pins need a nice place to live. I had to remove 4 doors to get pins in the room. It used to leak and I wanted a big door so I could unbox them in the room so they wouldn't get scratched taking them up stairs and through doorways.I put a picture from Star Wars battlefront on the ceiling to make it feel more like a games room

Innovation takes time. I love the fact that JJP takes chances to introduce never-seen-before elements to a machine, but in doing so you run the risk of pushing back release dates. It's my opinion that POTC is the most-innovative game ever released, but that means tons of testing & trial-and-error. Every time something doesn't work right, that means "back to the drawing board" and the date gets pushed back yet again.

Personally, I'd rather they take their sweet time to make sure they get everything right. If it takes an extra 8 months to make a near-perfect machine, then so-be-it.

Quoted from musketd:

They put a ton of RnD into this one and are on the final stages of a finished product. No way they abandon it.

I'd also like one of their future games to be cheaper and more original. I am hoping they see the success of Spooky making TNA and consider making a machine that's like a retro/throwback. But as long as people keep buying games at 8k, 9k, 10k+... why stop?

screaminr that's awesome. I can't wait to see a machine or two in there.

#2087 1 year ago
Quoted from MEuRaH:

If you look really closely you can see a bit of one in there . There is a pirates and a hobbit on the way.
I couldn't agree more with waiting a bit for a feature packed and deep pin.

I'm surprised to hear you say Pirates is rehash when you own a Star Wars which lets be honest is pretty much a rehash fan layout game...and I say that as an owner of one. I enjoy Star Wars but admit its design doesn't scream original. Pirates seems like a very original game with a unique layout, toy, ruleset, and feature offering.

The crazy thing is, you usually see people write that figure of speech as "peak" their interest, where I can kind of see the logic behind the failure. Never seen it put in print as "peek" because then the figure of speech makes no sense at all.

Sound of crickets......

#2096 1 year ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

I checked one of the European distributors website, it says 31/07 with date to be confirmed.

Hopefully they will ship them in September?
I am in no hurry, I have to sell my BSD and IJ first.

At least he wasn't bragging he was a great writer.

#2098 1 year ago

Well there hasn't been any streams lately, maybe that's a good sign.

#2099 1 year ago

Well, if Jack says one thing we know it will be another.

And I guess that's ok.

It is what it is. After 6 yrs of my initial Woz order not a lot has changed with respect to timing and promises.

At this point, I might just skip over to Willy Wonka.

Guess i have plenty of time to decide between now and Xmas.
