Quoted from bigd1979:

Its great pin for the price imo.. had few hours on it today...really want pats next pin

Get ready for TPF then BigD

Btw, I don't see anybody blowing through Munsters and the wizard mode on this stream. It ain't that easy.

Except for that one freak who just crushed it.

#6952 2 years ago
Quoted from noob-a-tron:

Any idea on Sterns next music pin as they will release one around the same time as GNR

Bon Jovi, Queen, Zeppelin. Take your pick.

It kicked our butts today and those are good players on the stream . Any pin can b difficult if set up correctly...

To finally get it exactly right.

Ok

Quoted from noob-a-tron:

Also add the Use your illusion albums

Not their best work I hit skip a lot

I get the love for that company completely but theme goes a long way for me when it comes to ANY pinball from anybody

If you look at Lawlors games a lot of them the theme matters
He didn’t create the show Twilight Zone
He didn’t create Adams Family
Like Greed w the bookcase,it spins around it’s fucking rad or the polar bear or the hand that comes out.
Amazing.

But a big part of what makes that special moment is the passage behind the bookcase.
From the movie.
From Addams family.
Not taking anything away from him he’s the master to a lot of folks and he captures that special moment from those stories and puts it on the table
But CSI,Monopoly,Shrek,not the same
I see TZ I am playing it but I am not running across town cause I heard the silver ballroom got Shrek.

I like Borg games.
Not all of them but some of them are amazing to me.

What makes a game special?
Many different things go together.

With this game,I expect mad cap fun with the Munsters family that gets me involved in it and I am getting the impression from some feedback from the guys I’ve talked to,that are pretty good players, that it’s a rad game

Borg and Dwight and Franchi may have captured some of that in this game,moments from those characters and that show plus some more pinball related code,sure would be great and will come not concerned

I fricking hope so I am waiting on the LE
ha ha

Just rambling thoughts thanks for the outlet

#6955 2 years ago

Like whoever made up the theme and designed MM,with THAT theme,to me that’s amazing it just fits pinball and I assume that’s an original theme?
That guy deserves a raise for sure

I agree with your statement of fun over anything else really. I guess for me, I haven't had that "ah-hah!" moment yet, where things open up, and that discovery alley is made. It's really rare in games, the zone and such. (Like for me hitting those crossramps in Fish Tales, wow that clicks in those moments!) I hope to play again tomorrow, and maybe that'll happen. I guess I still just wish the gameplay captured the zany and silly side to the show, and without the backglass video, I don't feel it.

Man, I wanna belieeeeeveeee!

Total side note. How did Jack Deadflip build notoriety? I often feel he dominates a bit too much after he intros people, and overall really embellishes a bit too much for me to enjoy. I like the idea of having a host for these unveils, but just one personality is the same issue I have with so much Zombi Yeti artwork.

*back to Munsters!*

This has been a killer stream for Munsters fans. Its been a Munsters marathon and I've loved every minute of it.

Was a Monty Python knock off, so sort of original, sort of not.

Ha I was just thinking why they never made a Monty Python pin
What do I know I would like to see Mystery Science 3000 but I don’t think that would work

#6960 2 years ago

Not sure how many of you are watching the Munsters stream still but holy.shit this dude is blowing it up!!!

He killed it. The others couldn’t get over 2m. Game looked like it played brutal. I think that’s the way to set this one up. Looks like fun.

Man that guy is a incredible player. That was fun to watch. This game is awesome and the code damn sure doesn't look that bad to me.

Yep it can be brutal.. it kicked my ass today(all day) shorter ball times than any other game i played which was 20 of the newest sterns ... the people that said its to easy and a walk in the park must have it set up to easy or something. I was impressed with munsters pro and if the code pans out a little more it cld be one of the better /best more recent stern pins imo. It has it all and checks all the right boxes.

Who was that guy? There were lots great players playing (much better than me) lol and it was routinely kicking asses. I think this pin will b just fine for most people /collections as long as its set up right.

Not sure who he was. Sounds like he's just a local guy. Jack said he has been playing pinball since he was a young lad. He put.on a hell of a show i know that much.

I think Jack puts his streams on youtube. If not it will be archived on Twitch for sure. Its already archived to Twitch and ready to watch. 5 hours worth of Munsters porn!!

I reckon a lot of operators are putting ball save on. I like the way it was set up for the stream - tight tilt and default (no) ball save. Maybe Open the outlanes also.

One i played today had no ball save, open outlanes and was very difficult. Can't wait set mine up.. its gonna be super fast and evil...

#6971 2 years ago

Man, people were really getting tore up sans ball save. Other than that one guy....

I wonder why Borg suggested to keep it off by default, or whomever did?

Is the Paul Lynde impersonator the alien from American Dad?

#6972 2 years ago

After watching the stream I was left with one conclusion. It turns out Munsters didn't just kick my butt playing! I'm far from a good player but after all the reading how easy it is I started to feel like I might be a terrible player. Turns out cracking 30 million scores isn't so normal on this game after all. Loving it and So can't wait for the arrival date. Congrats to the people that got their pins already have a Munsterific weekend.

I doubt that you are a terrible player Yelobird but even if you were pinball is a blast even for people who arent very good. I am just an average player but i have learned a lot by watching people play on Twitch.

This past week i have learned a new skill that i was never good at and that is drop catching the ball. The funny thing is i havent even been practicing it, i just started doing it for some odd reason without even thinking about doing it. Im going to try and stay sharp at it though because it's a skill that will definitely bring me higher scores.

Im guessing Slayer.

Seen Kerry King in allot of Gary Stern / Stern photos.

#6975 2 years ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

This game will be a top seller and probably one of the best Stern full featured games since the Simpson’s Pinball party and POTC. (Premium/LE). Trying to keep the hype train down but this one is rolling full steam ahead. LE will be full Technicolor

Where you at mang?

I only see you during the hype phase, seldom after reveals. Hmmmmm

#6976 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Come on Sky, the ultimate JJP fanboy? It's Wonka and Pat. Then GNR and next year Toy Story
This could be HUGE year for JJP if they nail Wonka.

I'm pretty sure its GNR in march... place your bets

#6977 2 years ago

Well I finally had a chance to play munsters (pro) last night and it confirmed my initial thoughts on the game. Enjoy it fellas!

Btw I saw a brand new mbr le and it was absolutely stunning. Might be nicer looking then my Pirates. It was pretty interesting to see the similarities in that game and munsters (layout) wise.

Was expecting my LE to ship yesterday. But my dealer just told me there is a two week delay.

Dream theme right there for me. I told myself I was done buying NIB pins but Slayer or Black Sabbath may get me to go back on that if they do ever happen.

Not for me....

#6983 2 years ago

Was expecting delivery of my LE this past Thursday. Now, I’m looking at the first week of March.

Does anyone know what’s going on with the delay?

#6984 2 years ago

Munsters wasnt for me either the first 50-60 games but now that I've got some shots and strategies down I'm loving it!!!!! Release tournaments today and tomorrow,its going to be a fun weekend.

Believe he has a mble on order so one or the other is probably enough in a smaller collection imo... they are very similar imo but i can allready tell I'm gonna like munsters pro more than mb ...especially for much much cheaper .

#6988 2 years ago

I heard stern had some issues at the factory during that very cold spell... it pushed pros back also which y i haven't gotten mine . Bc of that the le are also pushed back a bit .

This is correct unfortunately.... i heard 100 or so units got messed up. Good thing is stern is well..good at getting pins out so only few weeks delay. Any other company it wld of really really put them behind

Wonder what they do with 140 games that got water damaged?

#6995 2 years ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Seems odd they just did a live Stern stream yesterday and it appeared hundreds of LE’s were pouring down the line and into boxes. Didn’t seem delayed in that stream?

Sort of the way Iv thought about the game too. Took more time then most to get a feel for it and start to enjoy it

I hope some of the water damaged node boards don’t get reused.

#6998 2 years ago

Way excited to play this game...found a place a mere 4.5 hrs from home, so made the trek to try it out this weekend!
...the glories if living in WY

#6999 2 years ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Probably salvage what's good and rebuild.... its not like the whole place flooded just a pipe bust and got lots pins wet in different. stages of the build

#7000 2 years ago

I just hope nothing was just dried off and put back into machines... Better check your machines for water marks...
