Quoted from jfh:

I didn’t say “don’t buy it”. I said don’t buy it until you are happy with the code. Big difference.
Those that buy and bitch are rewarding Stern for bad behavior. If buyers don’t make feature complete code a priority, Stern certainly won’t.

Your absolutely right, I've been sucked in to the hype of these new release themes to the point where fatigue has set in. I have constantly got sucked in by hype with nothing ever done on time, shit communication via distributor or manufacture and a slow drip when it comes to code improvements. That's why I went with MBr because the wait is reasonable and I know out of the gate I'm not going to have any code issues with a game that is already completed. My last hype roller coaster will be ACNC #97 after that comes in I am done riding hype trains. I've managed to accumulate just enough knowledge of this hobby to be dangerous to myself and I am going to wait on future releases until I am satisfied with the game being as completed as possible before making a purchase. I don't think the LE scarcity game we see get played out here will hold water anymore. Just MHO.. Hoping to see a completed game with the Munsters and figures cross for a high "cool" factor.

Any coffin candy in the stockings today?

The assumption that remakes don't have their own "rollercoaster" put a smile on my face. Last year, my AFMrLE was down for many weeks and unplayable over the holidays (blew 2 boards). Distributor took the game back. This fiasco kicked off the big rework of one of the chips (which they sent out to existing owners).

The decision to purchase an "old game" like MBr because the software was finished decades ago is certainly one way to go! For many of us who have owned the originals, I guess we are bored with decades old software and like playing new rule sets (even if it takes awhile to finish them). For good or bad, many of the games are MUCH more complicated than AFM/MB, so sometimes it takes longer than anticipated (SW is a standout among complex rulesets). I wasn't happy with the state of my KISS Premium software, but Stern recently released a great update and the game rocks. I love the way the game shoots and license, so waiting for the update wasn't that big a deal.

I was ready to ride the ACNC roller coaster until I saw the reveal and decided it wasn't for me.

Quoted from mnpinball:

Might as well snooze this thread for awhile. Enjoy the games you have, enjoy your friends and family for Christmas. Enjoy those leaked cell phone pics, that’s all you get for awhile from the overseas leak. Not gonna announce a game while others are selling briskly and dealers are trying to sell in stock product for the holidays.
Just be happy knowing that pros are on the line for overseas container shipments.
Stern has got a good schedule going, as in past releases.
1. Production begins for Europe Pro sales.
2. Containers get loaded for the slow boat.
3. USA market Pros get on the line.
4. Teaser vid.
5. Announcement
6. 24-48 hours later press release and pics.
7. Live video of massive amount of cabinets and games built in the line.
8. Games ship to people within days.
9. People lose their shit because of the quick build-to-shipping timeline and Pinside goes apeshit.
Seems to be the recent trend. Love it.

mnpinball are the USA pros on the line tomorrow?

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on ACNC since I have already committed to the game with the deposit and upgrades. I liked Kiss, but how long did that take for that code to be completed? You definitely have a lot more patience and probably more room to hold on to those games longer. Kiss was fine for me when I got it, I've since sold it but still liked the game as it was when I bought it. I guess the best example for me would be Ghostbusters, it took a good 3 code adjustments for it to be really playable for me. I'm just going to take my time making decisions going forward on these games and not be so quick to jump into the whirlwind of theme excitement when they are announced.

nice to know that what some believed was my 'trolling' of spooky in the ACNC production thread will be vindicated as more 'customers' finally start waking up, refusing to be taken advantage of in the future. having witnessed this gentleman frustrations in said thread, he has laid things out here quite eloquently.

and who was at the controls of that 'hype rollercoaster'?
it was the same guy who received ACNC#2 late summer, routed it for only 300 plays over 3 months, and then sold it mid november. hes already sold one physical game, before nearly 500 others have yet to even receive theirs. the same guy who made fun of me when i mentioned the number of customers who happened to be selling their spots in line for any number of reasons - and hes already joined them by selling his early 'production' game. all of his hype. all of his speculation. little of it has come true. but he sure knew how to 'report' and quash the one person who was the consumers advocate.

Quoted from cpr9999:

Hey, we have the same address! Maybe it will get delivered to me instead.

Maybe two on the same delivery truck. Like that hasn't happened before. LOL

Freight Driver - " I have another pinball game in the truck going to Saukville, next stop " Telephone rings - " Hey is there a freight truck at your house ? "

Me - " Yes he's dropping my game now - he should be to your house shortly with your game "

It would be funny if we got the same driver again .... This is probably what the drivers Manifest will look like

Munsters Delivery Day Manifest :
Stop #11 - 1313 Mocking Bird Lane, Grafton
Stop #12 - 1313 Mocking Bird Lane , Saukville

I wish! but guessing that it will reveal with some crappy photos and half asses cell phone vids from that industry show the first week of Jan.

Sure would be nice to have it drop today in order to have some entertainment this week while things are slow at work.

#3017 3 years ago

Vids from trade or pinball shows are pretty worthless due to all of the background noise .

Yesterdays DF stream he was talking and it sounded like he will be streaming Munsters at that show. He didnt come out and say that obviously, but thats pretty much what it sounded like to me. Of course we still could see a reveal before then.......hopefully.

I like that plan - with a reveal before then thrown in for good measure.

Just announce it already !

Today is definitely not the day Stern won’t will show us Munsters. I have a new forecast of Jan 1/2 for the announcement. That puts Munsters into 2019, while allowing a few weeks to ramp production by Jan 14. It’s going to be Christmas all over again come January.

Will we see an upper playfield??? What kind of video will be used?? Will Lily be dressed in a sexy bikini? Pinballers who are Munster fanatics want to know.

#3025 3 years ago
Quoted from J85M:

CES is full reveal, as I posted way earlier.

January 1st is reveal TEASER.

#3026 3 years ago

I'm interested to see what's on the lower playfield....time will tell.

#3027 3 years ago

Agree on seeing Munsters teaser/ reveal early Jan. Stern is bringing their latest game to CES - which means 3 versions of GOTG. Newest does not not DP, Beatles nor Primus, more or less relatively new. Stern will also be showcasing their new digital pinball. Accessible on multiple platforms, Ghostbusters will be highlighted and maybe available in virtual reality too. There are no indications we will see Munsters at CES.

Maybe stern will showcase a code update for Ghostbusters

I’ll bet you are correct, although 100% of attendees won’t notice a difference.

... @ weinermobile

Stern will just pop this game public one of these days. No guessing on their marketing.

You'd have thought we would have seen this game by now.

Poor sales of Beatles is probably a contributing factor to the delay. Munsters is coming though. They probably have a fairly good pile of Domestic Pros sitting in the box already. They should flow out to distros quickly when they cut loose the Munsters being held hostage at the factory.

Let Herman Go !

#3034 3 years ago

A year ago I would be all in for an LE as i like the Munsters theme. But i am waiting becouse I am sick of giving stern money for incomplete games, and there is no guarantee that they will finish the code either.

Why would you expect them to mention the game they haven't announced yet? You don't put the surprise in your PR... nor do you undercut any exclusives you've setup. Duh

The only question would be is if it's CES or EAG. I would expect them to do it as cES so they get the media cycle.

The release cadence has been known for a long time... there is no delay. Its just a topic of release order. When they did Beatles first... well the next time slot was basically set

#3037 3 years ago

...It's been delayed or placed out of order or what ever you want to call it flynnbust. Also the Pro Exports have been done and the Domestic Pros have been on the line for a week or two. Delayed in my book.

No.

Beatles was intended for CES and has switched places. Not due to delay but to release Beatles as a 'christmas gift' title for non pinball collectors makes sense.

With full reveal at CES the games can start shipping immediately. Games arrive on european shores January 8th if I remember correctly.

Dwight said in his last interview Stern has some News in Stock from the very first day of the year, so I'm thinking Stern Teasers start Jan. 2nd latest.

Or maybe because the game designer was sick and missed a chunk of time recovering before finishing the game?

So if they were to announce The Munsters on Munsters Monday which would be December 31, would it still be considered a 2018 title? If its not announced by then i say we can plan on Wednesday January 2nd because Stern may be closed on New Years day. Also Stern may not work on New Years Eve either so that would rule out Munsters Monday.

Geeeze.....just announce the damn game tomorrow Gary will ya?
