Quoted from snaroff:

toys are lame and the ramps are boring. I owned a stunning HEP restoration and couldn't justify keeping it. The theme also did nothing for me.
MB would be a much safer choice for CGC. AFM/MB/MM are popular because they are engaging games with cool original themes. As I said before, CC is sought after because it's rare. If they start churning them out, it's no longer rare. OTOH, if they rework the game/rules, I could change my tune.

Not sure I totally agree with you here. Invited a local Pinsider over to my house to check out my AFMrLE because he was considering buying one. He noticed I had a CC (with Continued) and wanted to play it because he had never played one. We played a couple of games. He was hooked! He really forgot about AFM. He loved the theme and when Cowboys and Aliens came on.... Oh Boy! So Its really opinionated on how good the theme is and the game play. The other thing I like about it is the flipper sounds (im a flipper sounds nut) That game must produce a thousand flipper sounds from a dozen games (with continued). Just like to bump that flipper button when I pass by it!

#102 8 months ago

I haven't played much of an actual CC (and none of CCC I don't think) but the game has always stood out to me as a real looker - playing it on pinball arcade is definitely fun though. MB I don't find fun on pinball arcade-
Much rather play the real thing . It's not super deep but it plays well and you can get some serious flow going, lots of "one more game" in my house

I hear you. Don't get me wrong, I had friends go ga-ga over mine. The first time my son and I played Cowboys and Aliens, we were freaking out! CCC is clearly "cool" and if I had the space & motivation for a larger collection, I'd still own mine. The problem is it's hard to justify keeping games that don't get played much. To be totally upfront, the other reason I sold mine was in anticipation of a potential remake. HEP restorations don't fare well once the title is being remade I still kept my HEP AFM since it gets played.

Quoted from PPS:

All ... a little clarification ... we have at least 7 (MM, AFM, and at least 5 more) remakes coming, all are products of Chicago Gaming, and licensed thru Planetary Pinball. PPS is in constant contact with CGC on the games in development, we provide the approvals, as well as the blueprints, some parts, and review feature sets/pricing. But in general, the games are Chicago Gaming product (product support, warranty, etc), and of course we spend alot of time feeding them with input, highlighting any issues, etc - all to try to make the best game possible. PPS also happens to be one if not the largest remake game distributor. What I can tell you is that in the list of likely remakes are CC, MB, TOM, BBB ... that list may change as other games become more interesting to add in based on desirability, etc. We also have the source code for these games, so any deficiencies in the original code could be addressed with a couple of different approaches. Each game is getting new core features (like the Large Color display in AFMR) that will be incorporated into future releases, and game #3 will have additional features as well.
We are really happy with the progress on game #3 and we think people will be happy with the end result. More on this when it is time, which is not too far away!

BBB!!! Merry Christmas to all!!!!

#105 8 months ago

Surprised about ToM. I would have figured ToTAN and CV would be more likely as they fetch more $$$.

#106 8 months ago

Mark me down for a BBB

#107 8 months ago

From that list I am interested in BBB too

I’d be in for ToM if it’s in the 6k range - otherwise the game isn’t a keeper after you get through the modes a few times. It IS fun, but I know it wouldn’t get played too much after the initial honeymoon phase

ha doesn't that happen with most games really?

CC or CCC def get a little old. It's still a classic but so are a lot of other games that I wouldn't buy.
I can just imagine all the complaining aboot the shootout targets.
"WTF why does the ball stop so much it totally kills the flow...can I turn them off somewhere?!?"

Hi,
Is there a chance that CC and BBB codes could be polished (not only fixing bug) if you remade them?
Thanks

I believe CGC did say they would be able to do something like this , but specifically said it would not include the existing CC Continued code

This would be the closest thing we'd see since the 2.0 games( totan or cv, fh) and submit your list of bug fixes threads .

Ehh. Not a huge fan of that game.

As for code updates for any remakes, sure, it can be done, will depend on the specific game and the specific issues, and what approach to fix them or make them better and improve the overall game. We've compiled game code, so this is not a super big deal (i'm sure it's more of a big deal to make changes and ensure that it doesn't break something else), but that is all within Chicago Gaming role to figure out what it takes to make a great remake.

I was thinking about BBB.
I owned this game 18 months ago and I always thought this game had a fantastic atmosphere, a great theme, a solid layout but the rules of each modes were weak in my opinion, no wizard mode..

#124 8 months ago
Quoted from tmntrule999:

Well from what I have been told, by very trustworthy people in Chicagoland pinball market, although the announcement hasn't been made yet, MM is officially the next one.

My bad, I meant MB, but yes, from what I have been told, this is officially next. And also, thank you Rick for keeping us updated.

#125 8 months ago

I think they should start making mm with the large display and upgraded dots if needed,I would like a mmr and have owned a few originals and am hoping this will happen,the large display and inproved dots on afmr is a game changer

Perhaps one or two of the modes could be improved I agree. But as for wizard mode, there certainly is one when all modes and tasks are completed - it's called "Big Bang" and it very entertaining, especially the mood set to get started, and fun to keep the balls in play manually.

#127 8 months ago

Did Williams’ license from Universal Studios for Monster Bash allow it to make the game in perpetuity? I would have thought the license would have expired.

So I guess I missed to complete a mode each time. I thought you restart at the beginning
So Informations need to be clearer to know if mode is completed.
Good to know.

BBB with the AFMR HD display and enhanced graphics? You make sure to sign me up on that list. BBB is a grail pin I've been stupid enough to consider shelling 18k for. Please make it happen!

What proof do you have?

#137 6 months ago

Proof is way over rated.

Let's run a pool. 25.00 buy in

March the next title from CGC will be announced. "monster bash" is what my gut says. I do not represent CGC or PP so I can't speak for them. As a owner of MMRLE and AFMRLE I will be gladly accepting this title into my collection.

#143 5 months ago

Don’t know if this has already been said, but MB is more in line with CGCs marketing strategy for MM & AFM, than CC is.
1. Top 5 pinside rated game
2. 1125 pinsiders have MB on their Wishlist vs 390 for CC.
3. MB had a production run of 3361, similar to MM & AFM. Only 903 CCs. CGC could sell 500+ MBr without affecting the price of old and remake machines. If they produce a similar number of CCr the price is likely to fall, alienating current CC owners.
Demand for CC is less and pricing strategy is tricky to avoid flooding market and driving down the price. Current CC owners are likely to be significant customers for CGC so I think they will want to keep them onside for as long as possible.
The flip side would be to do a very limited run of CCr. Maybe 100 to 200 pins.

Delay due to LICENSING

#145 5 months ago

Pretty sure the license has been finalized a while ago. My guess is fit and finish of the redesigned toys and interactive topper integration. Upset about the delay because I have already made space for a new LE however really want a game that has no errors. Please hurry CGC!!!

#146 5 months ago

Love all of CGC remakes but I'm still saving and waiting for the Indiana Jones remake

One day...

#147 5 months ago

"Surprised about ToM. I would have figured ToTAN and CV would be more likely as they fetch more $$$."

I completely agree here. ToTAN and CV are two of the most gorgeous and addictive machines ever, not to mention games that possess sustaining allure. TOM is really a bore in short order. All three have some kinship in general theme yet ToTAN and CV are so much better in every sense.

BIG BANG BAR's imminent remake is truly reason to celebrate along with CACTUS CANYON.

Get an IMDN now, and MB later. They’re both great pins, that will be available to buy for a long time.
