Well, 311 does every year! Im sure ACDC could in a heartbeat

Yeah but 311 sucks.

#352 4 years ago

Aren't 311 klansmen?
11th letter of the alphabet is K.
3 K's.....

...and yes, I know http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/311.asp

#353 4 years ago

311 has been around for 27 years now, they are doing something right!

Quoted from wayout440:

Which half of these overwhelming supporters is actually going to make a real purchase?

you kidding? Pearl Jam is fawking awesome.

To each their own; I couldn;t listen to them for more than 10 seconds.
EDIT: Well, they may get more than that from me if they were up against 311 for revolting music, head to head. Tough call.

#357 4 years ago

you will never know if it does outsell or not ! Gary Stern never releases numbers "period"

The only question will be will Gene insist on a bigger face portrait on the playfield than Angus'.

Not drawn on the PF, but this was a good call.

I will buy a game or three on a Stern KISS. Hopefully it will be priced at 75¢ a game and 3 games for $2.00

No need to spend thousands of dollars when a few bucks will do.

#361 4 years ago

Placed my preorder today for the Kiss LE.

Eddie Vedder had a mean case of the Ho-Earls back in the day. I feel your pain.

Heeeeeeee-vennnnn flowww-ho
Thoughts arrrrriiiiiive like butterflie-eaaarls
Whoaaaa he don't knowww-ho

edit : Dave Abbruzzese was pretty rad though.

I can understand it. But sometimes there is a song or album that can change your mind about a group. I used to hate Nirvana until I heard the unplugged album. I thought that show was fantastic and changed my perspective of them.

As for Pearl Jam. This is some of the new stuff. How can you hate this song?

How? Because I don't want to hear DMB when I'm seeking out Pearl Jam.

Then you should have clicked the link when it still went to Whirlpool.

Quoted from cosmokramer:

I think our distributor here in Canada still has some KISS LE they can't sell right now, even at reduced price.

#372 3 years ago

Wait until the latest beta code becomes official.

"Ya know, I hate the band, but I just had to get the pin....." all over again.

#373 3 years ago
Quoted from cosmokramer:

Feeling a bit down on that one.

#374 3 years ago

Not in NZ

#375 3 years ago

They will sell plenty.......given new prices it is doubtful they will sell as many as AC/DC. When the new code drops there will be more hype and new buyers. There was no competition when AC/DC was made. Games released after AC/DC were not as good so more chose to buy AC/DC. People are still wanting AC/DC as a recent thread suggests. There are more options for people's money in today's market. Kiss is a fun game but time will tell if it will be a great game. Unless Stern releases production numbers we may never know.

#376 3 years ago

Not a terrible game but not even close to acdc. At least finish the code so we can all move on

#377 3 years ago

Well, I will be buying a Kiss, but not until I see some decent progress on the code.

#378 3 years ago

Really a shame more can't be done for the software in a more timely fashion, or that it takes so long to get the code to a decent point. Games need to have things like lamp effects and display animations for extra ball awards for instance. Not just some basic placeholder text reading "extra ball" with no effects, or items on the playfield that have no meaning until 4 years later.

#379 3 years ago

Every Stern game takes at least 2 years to be coded after release.

You can't act surprised.

Quoted from Pickle:

The price has nothing to do with why it hasn't sold nearly as good as ACDC. The Premiums & Pro's are pretty much the same price that ACDC versions sold for. Within a couple hundred anyways.

#381 3 years ago
Quoted from smassa:

In NL this is different. ACDC Premium could be bought 2-3 years ago for USD 7500,-, a Premium like GOT goes for around USD 9000. But ofcourse the exchangerate causes a big part of the increase. So if a new ACDC premium is made pricing will be same USD 9000

Anyway, I bought an ACDC premium NIB for USD 7500, I would have never bought it for USD 9000. Its for me still the best game but USD 9000 is just to much.

Quoted from vdojaq:

With KISS being announced within a week or so.....I boldly predict it will OUTSELL AC/DC.
Naysayers commence!!!

Well, that prediction went to hell, didn't it?

I was WRONG!

Now where the heck is my code?

All things are not equal. This wasn't a fair fight- Lyman vs Lonnie. And to go even further- COMPLETED Lyman vs bare bones Lonnie.

I'd bet that if Lyman had done the code on Kiss and Lonnie on AC/DC, history would have changed these 2.

My last Stern NIB - thanks to Stern and their incredible ignorance.
Cities should have been incorporated into the game...more songs..and a far more in depth combo system..long ago.
Spike1 is not even being used to 30% of its capacity, if I had to guess.

I'll hold out hope a code is coming, against my experience and better judgment.

#385 2 years ago

The current KISS code is BS. I will never buy another NIB game from them until they get this shite fixed.

I don't mind kiss. I like AC/DC music wayyyyyyy more than Kiss. But Kiss has better artwork. If AC/DC had the artwork of Kiss, there is no way Kiss would even come close to AC/DC even with finished code. AC/DC is solid all around. With a kick ass soundtrack to go with it. Only lacking in the art department.

Luci version is the way to go for me

100% with you

Quoted from wayout440:

yes, but the luci version only changes the cab and translite to a white trash looking bar chic. I don't really look at the cabinet and I think the road amp case look on the cabinet is pretty awesome. The translite needed an upgrade, which Helan did a great job of fixing, but the playfield art is where it really could use a Zombieyeti touch. If it had full blown out art, like Kiss, Aero, GB, or Met, it would have been flawless.

Agreed. I'd add PBR to the list. Although shit for beer, that's some good art.

I think we know the answer as to whether KISS outsells AC/DC...but how about Metallica?...or AS?

My uncle used to drink PBR a lot, along with Red White & Blue, Old Style, and whatever else was cheap. He would always shove one in my hand and I'd nurse it so I wouldn't have to drink another.

My dad used to haul a wagon with a case of POC for my grandfather every pay day.

Somehow, I became a beer snob after my father in law introduced me to German imports.
