Quoted from metallik:

But is it? WCS is a good basic game that had to be finished by someone else. TOM is a pretty, but bad game that is exploitable and never used in competiton. TOTAN is a beginner-level pin with the depth of a sys11 game (but less interesting) and again never used in comps. CV is pretty fun, but again helped by others and saved by great software. EP1 is a complete turd.
JPOP track record is IMHO inferior to many others... Lawlor, Ritchie, Oursler, Eddy, Borg, Gomez, Trudeau, Nordman all are better modern designers.. hell, I have more fun playing Pemberton games than Popadiuk's.

Quoted from LTG:

Just speculation. But maybe they think it would be worth it to have him on board as a designer. Not too many of them around if you need one.
LTG : )

True, but if you make mg owners whole, the angry raza mob is standing next in line?
What are your thiughts on that then?

Quoted from metallik:

Is it possible to just stop talking about kaneda and discuss the games and companies? Chris provided the original info (thank you for that) .. we have the news, now can we forget about Chris again? Nothing personal against him but the machines and AP company are far more interesting than talking about Chris and dupe accounts on a pinball forum.

I'm completely in agreement with this, but at the same time it's hard to ignore him when he continues to post under the username of Dave Bowman and is pretty much sticking it in our face, going as far as posting an email from....himself.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

As I already explained in previous posts.
The game concept is real based on a developed design based on my industry contacts.
I was aware of prototyping.
I did not realize that samples had been completed, nor a a plan for an early reveal.
This is not a Kaneda troll post, so I am not sure why people keeping believing it is such only because the original poster is the person people dislike.
I don't like the anyone should have the need to use duplicate accounts, but the information still had value.
In the history of pinball, this is not the first time manufacturers have pulled a "hat trick", nor a surprise at an Expo.
AP is a new player in town that could upset what Stern thought was a industry monopoly for the current Expo.
I welcome the competition, as this will moderate pricing even if only for a short while, especially if the gameplay is solid, regardless of hard feelings towards the designer.
This hobby has a very short memory of the past, that some say is "not relevant", which is false.
If money can be generated, things will progress.

Memory is not so short to remember you disembowling Kaneda here on Pinside only to get right back into bed with him...

The past of this industry is the past... it's a home consumer market. Stern is proving that with their GB playfield "program".... Batman66 available models and pricing... not to mention all of the other manufacturers that are catering to the collector market.

Don't get me wrong, the history of pinball (when relayed and told without constantly pointing out what idiots modern collectors are) is fascinating and fun. But, it's a brand new day now. That's a fact.

Quoted from Mr68:

True.

Yes and everybody wants to downvote when they do not want to believe.

I only try to help and educate, and remain impartial towards individuals. I am not a fan of anyone. I don't wish to argue. I am also was not "Dick Thorn" that people here so kindly accused. I did not do the BBB interview for that individual. I did it for many "modern" collectors who asked me to do it. My time is limited.

Some people do not seem to want to understand this straightfoward point.
No agenda, no narcissism, no personal profit.

This applies to this topic regarding AP as well.
People need to stop trying to target people for their frustations, as there is a severe loss of the ability to learn anything productive.

#456 12 months ago

Sure I paid extra for the MAGNETO Version of X men, really wished I wouldn't have spent the extra money for the paint job. I played this game for about 1.5 hours last night, still a tough game

I really look at the Pro Vs Prem STERN titles. Im so glad I bought PRO for Walking Dead, GOT, and Mustang , I think I saved myself money and didn't buy alot of extra toys and crossbows. GB Prem is better than the Pro IMO. Tron and Metillica we decent values for the Prem Titles. Thats all.

There were rumours that there was a rumour, but that turned out to be bullshit.

You don't have to spam all four J POOP threads with that, dude.

I'm sorry but can't Robin give us a good reason why his IP address hasn't been banned?

Isn't that what "blocked" means? Anyways, changing / spoofing your IP is kiddie shit. Anyone can do it.

It's the VPN era, I doubt he is using his home IP.

That is pointless... you can appear anywhere on the network with trivial effort due to tor and VPNs. You have to sniff out dupes or have strong verification requirements.

Who's complaining?

#466 12 months ago

I've spotted some duplicate accounts of his and notified the mods. It doesn't seem real easy to spot duplicate accounts unless those of us who are on here often help out.

Chris could probably start a new account if he wanted and be a quality pinsider but he just starts new shit with each new username. It's pretty sad.

There should be some sort of punishment in place, when caught being so vocal & wrong at the same time. That is the cocksureness that is the bane of this forum. I told Robin the same. If you ever found out that I wasn't Kaneda, you would just be silent and ride it out. That's the problem with users on this forum. You never doubt yourself for one second. It hasn't even occurred to you that you could be wrong. Your mind is too small and weak.

Go away

#473 12 months ago

I did try to get banned, I asked Robin to ban me. But he PM'ed me that he would like me to stay. He is more than welcome to ban me at ANY time he sees fit! That goes for all moderators! If your suspicions get the better of you, please go ahead. Better safe than sorry, right?

Your reply is all I need. I was positive if I made any remark toward your DaveBowman character you would take the bait to jump all over it.

Congrats!

Lol. There's lots of legit podcasts with great reputations... you could create your own podcast... hell, type it out under a thread entitled "Mass Education."

"No personal profit"??? The level of narcissism is over the top.

You're probably a good dude... you obviously want to be heard... you just need to down shift an find other avenues. Another approach. It will work way better for you.

Take the bait?? What? lol.

Just for the fun of it, then. What would you do if you were wrong? Crawl back in into the hole?

I consider myself a pretty stand up guy. If I was wrong, I know how to apologize. And since we are talking about holes, good luck with the one you have put yourself in.

Quoted from chet218:

It is kind of amusing though, he can play with many pinsiders like puppets on a string. He seems to press all the right buttons.

That way he manages to get the attention he craves every time. Simply ignoring him would make him go away quite quickly.

#482 12 months ago

Of course you consider yourself a stand up guy. Are you also a good and fair person, with the right world views? Of course you are! You're very, very top of the line.

#483 12 months ago

I am so over this...

You passing on an e-mail from Kaneda so he can spew his nonsense here should be enough to get banned by itself. You sure seem obsessed with him if you are not actually him.

#486 12 months ago

They should change Davebowman's subtitle "Pinside apprentice" to "Pinside Troll". And show his location as "Inside your head"

Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

I don't know guys... He does have a pretty press guy. Sounds to me like we are being overly harsh on someone who has contributed so much to our hobby!

Back on subject.... Is anyone local to this event that can get there to play it in person. It's two days away

Why not?

Look at the average number of listens he gets per episode...Now compare that to the average number of pinsiders/guests on pinside at any given time.

Think its a coincidence that both of those numbers are about 600 on average?

Bunch of closet listeners we all are...

Anyone care to share?
