I havent seen many lower playfields that i like so if its stupid i may go pro as well. I cant buy day one anyway so im gonna have plenty of time to see all the models and study them.

#902 3 years ago
Quoted from Rum-Z:

No lower playfield, just a big Herman Munster face in its place (ala the first AC/DC Pro), LOL... hopefully Stern doesn't do that. But I could see it.

The lower playfield in acdc doesn’t really do anything, kind of weak I think, more of a diversion from the game. If you could play both the lower pf and upper pf at the same time and have rules associated it with them, like combos or something, then I think it could be cool.

#903 3 years ago

I am not a lower playfield lover as well.... will they offer all three models on day one, or will it be a staggered intro?

If Munsters is truly a play on Haunted house with a more full-featured mini-playfield on the bottom level with full flippers, pop or pops, and drop targets, I'm totally down with that. I just don't want SF2/Congo/ACDC style gimped lower PF.

And actually, I'd be fine if the lower PF was an LCD and they had a devil's crush type pinball with progressive, changing environments like DC had.

Vireland... I think you might just have something in the lcd idea... So much cool stuff you could do with that idea. I don't think it would fit the Munsters theme, and I doubt stern would be the right company to do something like that first. But, I think a company totally should do that. But, then again I'd love to have more games like Revenge from Mars(never played it. Really want to) and Star Wars Episode 1(really, really enjoy the game I think it gets a bad rap. Its a fun pinball game).

I'd be down with an LCD in the playfield window since it would almost be like a very interactive video mode, and if it was as progressive as Devil's Crush with lots of stuff to work through, it would be great. But I'm not jonesing for more RfM or SWE1. Did not like pinball 2000. Too same-y.

I wouldn't want all games like it. I just would like one more game like it. I can't comment on Revenge from Mars. But, I think Star Wars Episode 1 is fairly deep.
Has nice animations that more than hold up to today's standards. I like the callouts. And while it does have too much Anakin and Jar Jar. They're really not that annoying in small doses and I think are used nicely in the game. Also I like the Light Saber Duel in it. Really simple, but still cool.

Think of what could be done now. You could make an even deeper game, with more animations and it could be really crazy and insane. A game like that would probably never be good enough to be in a single pin collection. But, I think still would be worth playing if on location, and possibly worth owning if you have at least 2-3 other pins.

Now there's a cool rumor
Virtual lower playfield eh ?
Could be wild if correctly integrated
Would upset a lot of purists though.

VLP Would make sense to Stern bom department
Cheap and easy to install/maintain.
4 screws and a couple of cables

I don't think they did it for Munsters, but it would get away from crappy lower playfields. Unfortunately, the level of software quality would have to improve dramatically for it to be cool. But, yeah, Naxat-level Devil's Crush game as the 3rd playfield would be amazing.

Family Guy has IMO the best secondary playfield in the history of pinball. It’s especially magnificent when playing both PF’s simultaneously.

Keefer was such a bad motherfkr. Stern currently has some talent in the code department but they lost some magic when parting ways with that dude.

Well, I think there will always be room for traditional pinballs. But, I would be excited to see more integration like an lcd in the playfield.
It could serve as a lower playfield at times. A way to integrate video mode. And it could have other game interactions as well. Could have fire effects or other effects as well.
Also an lcd for the backwall could work too.
And you'd just have to make certain the clear surface that it rests under doesn't scuff or dimple, or crack of course. Otherwise it wouldn't be that expensive of a toy. And I know how stern likes to stay away from the expensive mechs. Which is fine. It gives sterns a unique flavor and a style there own. But, I really think the future of pinball could be some really wild stuff with that level of integration.

#912 3 years ago

PW79 That’s funny because I don’t like the upper playfield on Family Guy at all. That is one thing I like about pinball. Something for everyone.

Not sure I could disagree any more thoroughly.

I find the fg upper a chore and not fun.

I'm with you on this....Love that mini pf and great pin overall...

Different strokes for different folks.

Stewie pinball has damn near the same BOM as a Star Wars Pro. Same SR fan layout too.

(Now I’m just trolling you guys in good humor since you don’t like one of my favorite games )

So if a 2 flipper fan layout pinball machine inside a pinball machine is not a good upper/lower PF then what are you guys hoping for with Munsters?

#917 3 years ago

I really hope Stern isn't swapping Beatles and Munsters releases. Pretty sure Beatles is a mistake Stern/Kapow will regret.

Nope. mnpinball stated already and has been quote more than 3 times already...Munsters pros shipping in Nov.

#919 3 years ago

Yup - Munsters IS next.

and do not be surprised if Elvira is released in Spring 2019....

Fingers crossed nothing has changed. Two duds in a row would be too much, and I'm hyped for Munsters.

Where in the world did you even see that was suggested? You are the first to mention it from what I've been reading on this thread and as well as on the "what's the next Stern game?" thread.

Can't say. Hope it was wrong.

Quoted from PinMonk:

What are the Duds in a row... It's been Iron Maiden, and then Deadpool...
Iron Maiden isn't a dud.
And Deadpool looks to be fun... I don't think I'll ever buy one. But, I wouldn't mind playing one.

#924 3 years ago

Deadpool is fun! I like it better than Maiden.

Beatles would MAKE it two duds in a row. Deadpool is a shallow clunky Gomez special. Beatles I have zero interest in as a pinball machine, and it's Kapow, so it will be bend you over a barrel-time on price. So, yeah, hoping I heard wrong and Munsters is still next.

It's all fun in the honeymoon phase. Give it 3-4 months.

#927 3 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Yeah, it looks like fun to me.
Iron Maiden is a dream theme for me. And I'll be the first to say I don't know much about pinball compared to a true pinball player. I've only played on 60-70 real machines.
But, I really, really love Iron Maiden. It has a lot of replay, a lot of shots, and a good amount of flow. The coding to me seems to be top notch. As the modes rotate around, and each mode uses a different part of the playfield or combos.
And so I think its actually from a shot, and coding perspective about as good as it can get.
And I love the theme... Hate the PREM art package... Which is what I own... Doh!!!!
Really think Munsters could be cool.
Just worried how they intergrate the theme. I rather it be more vague and just get the personality and not try to be a clip show.
Get the stairs, get spot, get the raven and his clock. Get Herman busting through the door and maybe jumping up and down. I personally am underwhelmed at both GOTG and Batman 66 because I just don't feel how they used the media. I haven't played the games. Only watched footage. But, I just don't like the animations or how they incorporated the footage. I hope when I play the games I'll change my mind. But, I think less is more, and make the clips short but plentiful.

#928 3 years ago

Iron Maiden and Deadpool are both very good games.

I have no doubts Munsters will be very good too - and yes it is the next game.

#929 3 years ago

I don't own an Iron Maiden. Played it and it's a great game. I'm just not into Maiden music.
Deadpool is surprisingly fun. It's not clunky at all. I own one. It's really good if you like the comic book stuff.

How many games have you put on Deadpool and Beatles?

#931 3 years ago

I didnt say I dont like Maiden.
I just like Deadpool better!
Looking forward to Munsters.
Just hoping they dont F^*k it up.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Deadpool - enough to recognize the Gomez clunk. Beatles - zero, but the theme says nothing at all to me for pinball, and some of the other stuff that's rumored about the machine is a big "WTH was Stern thinking with these license restrictions?"

#935 3 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

You got that right and for that reason they can stick it up their asses just like i told them to on BM66. I wouldn't buy a Beatles pin though even if it was at a cheaper price.

And just to be clear, Iron Maiden ABSOLUTELY is NOT a dud. Great game.

I could have sworn the title for this thread was (Monsters is coming speculation thread) Not lets talk about every other Stern game around.

#938 3 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

So it all comes down to whether you personally like the game or not to determine dud or not? Nothing to do with how fun the game is to others or maybe how many units are sold?

Harley Davidson sold a LOT of pins, and Harley fans love it. It's crap. So, uh, yeah. Number of pins sold (and, BTW, Deadpool is not exactly burning up the presses), and number of people professing love (especially in the first 3-4 months) is ZERO solid indicator of a pin being good.

Quoted from mnpinball:

Pro mid November

Quoted from mnpinball:

Yep the pro and premium will be drastically different
This will be the haunted house mansion 1313 Mockingbird Lane under glass

Quoted from mnpinball:

If you are a fan of Gottlieb Haunted House. Munsters LE/Premium will be your game. Jacked up 2018 style !

If some of these ideas come to realization on the actual machine this will be amazing. I'm starting to get really excited for this already and we just literally got deadpool LE last week.

No way. I'd have KISS LE again any day over any current flavor of Deadpool. (I'm not great about keeping my collection updated on pinside. Moves too much. I'm a recovering pin addict and have limited myself to max of 2 at any given time, so there's a lot of churn)

I actually really like Kiss alot and id own one too. It gets kind of a bad rap imo.
