JJP Guns N Roses First Impressions & Gameplay

So I can't tell, did Greg like the game? lol Great review as always!!

#5304 3 months ago

Haven't made it through the whole thing yet, but I'm guessing you guys haven't played a standard yet.

#5305 3 months ago

Very entertaining show! Glad I’m in on a CE after watching this. The production graphics at the start when you fly down the guitar with the SDTM logo is very impressive and both my dad and brother are in that field. Bravo.

#5306 3 months ago

That was such a fun watch - thanks guys!

#5307 3 months ago

The one worrying thing they said, and they said it with a tinge of criticism:

Plays like a JJP.

Translation: slow and floaty?

Trust me this game is Anything but slow or floaty. In their video they were describing the flipper feel not the game speed.

That’s good news. It looks really cool. I’m with them on JJP flipper feel. I really wish they could make them feel better, crisper and more responsive. Not sure how they could do that, but wish they would work on it.

Nice review on TBL. Just remember, that’s like your opinions man!

FYI, the TBL community is strong in supporting this machine. Spare harddrives and motherboards I have been selling plus a number of mods! (Including the spare parts for the machine you bought from Dan in WI). rensh and sd_tom have been great in supporting.

I have owned a lot of the latest Stern LEs which are great and you can tell they are high volume manufacturer- but that theme integration on TBL is awesome, toys are great too. Hopefully the code bump promised by end of the year comes true (Barry needs to shell out some cash to Koen for a healthy code update). Add to code and fix a few machine bugs.

This will put a great machine into the top 10 - in like my opinion dudes.

Quoted from cpr9999:

I THINK their review was fairly spot-on. The weird thing was how their score-weighting caused TBL to rank below lesser games (IMHO). If the review score is a measure of desirability, I'd bet their own 'This or That' segment would show that the final game scoring hasn't aged well or something.

This is being done on TBL now, according to Rensh .

Yes. You can jump on the list with Cointaker - only USA distributor for this. Expect a 6 month wait +\- and it’s $12,500 including shipping.

Or buy one now second hand for 14k-$16k depending.

TOP 10 MOST UNDERRATED PINBALL MACHINES

New SDTM Episode 120

#5331 27 days ago

Godzilla is spot on a blast to play and extremely under rated. I’d say LAH could use some more attention. RBION could be sent up higher on pinside top 100.

#5332 27 days ago

Nice job gentlemen. Thanks for blessing us with a Boxing Day SDTM treat! Fun idea for an episode!

#5333 27 days ago

I disagree.. Stranger Things should be #1 Lol. Great video. Will have to check out a couple of those you mentioned.

#5334 27 days ago
Quoted from ZMeny:

TOP 10 MOST UNDERRATED PINBALL MACHINES

No Shadow?? One of the most under-rated masterpieces of all time.

#5335 27 days ago

I liked the video but wish the list didn’t have games that were just released in the past couple years as underrated since they are so new. I liked seeing Radical on there and would have been more interested in seeing what games made the list that have some age to them.

#5336 26 days ago

I enjoyed this video but what it really did was get me excited for your most overrated game list. You guys play off each other so well I can’t wait!

#5337 26 days ago

I skimmed through that....

I would 100% agree with Wonka as being the best JJP game which is funny with all the GNR hype going on.. GNR doesnt play great, srry.

I would have put Stern Star Wars on there also but maybe that one gets enough love now.

Why every time when you say GnR doesn’t play great you say Sorry?

Agree on both though I feel many are coming around to SW now. Its not a game you can rate after playing 5-10 times. I disliked it on location but then bought one and love it. So deep

I agree regarding SW.

Because I know people really like it... Im not saying that to be a dick I just dont care for it.

Its a hard game and not easy to learn so no way in hell anyone is going to like it right off.

#5343 26 days ago

Its taken awhile for Wonka to get the praise it deserves.

#5344 26 days ago
Quoted from vireland:

No Shadow?? One of the most under-rated masterpieces of all time.

Hey, The Shadow is easily in my top 3 off all time and maybe the greatest game ever made, so I would never subject it to the peasants listed on that Top 10. The Shadow transcends underratedness.

#5345 26 days ago

I love the list except for Popeye. If I were to put a 90s B/W game in its place, I would pick NBAFB.

#5346 26 days ago

The top 10 list has me thinking now. I’m gonna check out Meteor.

#5347 26 days ago

For newer games I’d agree with Star Wars as well. I didn’t care for it when it first came out but love the comic version.

#5348 25 days ago
Quoted from AndHart120:

Star Wars is the new Iron Man.

Pretty similar in that they were bitched and moaned about for a year or two until people played them enough to get whats going on.

Both are top five all time for me as far as fast hard games go.

Quoted from ZMeny:

Hey, The Shadow is easily in my top 3 off all time and maybe the greatest game ever made, so I would never subject it to the peasants listed on that Top 10. The Shadow transcends underratedness.

My general metric for underrated is, "Have I bought it for $750 before?"

Shadow was firmly in that class until I made the mistake of making the shadow plastics superset and everyone was able to replace formerly unobtanium plastics cheaply all at once. It never went below $1500 from that point on.

Another pin that's underrated is Johnny Mnemonic. So few people have played one, and even fewer have played one with a properly-working hand. JM has one of the coolest Midnight Madness modes, too.

Actually, it would take a while to experience them all to do it, but you should do a top 10 midnight madness modes. Pretty sure Munsters would be the best MM version, but there are a number of good ones out there. You'd have to roll Star Wars back to the one version that had it to see that one though...

#5350 25 days ago
Quoted from rai:

I agree regarding SW.

Yep me too. Played it on location few times but not enough. Hope to get one soon. Hopefully comic premie.
