Something Sci Fi please.
Quoted from DCFAN:
Perhaps you can get a boutique pinball manufacturer to make that "Satan eats Jesus" pinball machine you might like?
I like the title, but you guys are a little much, big difference between not wanting cartoons for kids and magic for preteens than maybe something Scifi or a little more action related like Madmax or BladeRunner, you came up with something so much worse than anything I was thinking, thats scary, your probably religious too, even scarier.
Quoted from DCFAN:
Sorry, I am not religious at all. Willy Wonka appeals to all ages and has tons of cool things that could provide inspiration for an awesome pinball machine. It is a pretty dark movie.
Well I still like "Satan eats Jesus" for the next JJP title, I'm in for the LE 100% I would really like to see something SciFi by this company, the games are beautiful and I think its a good match, we kinda have enough fantasy/colorful imagery already. Glad you can at least take a joke.
As much as I like SciFi and stuff one theme that I would enjoy and is family freindly would be Looney Toons, think of the clips and source material is through the roof.
Quoted from system11:
I never understood the river of tears it caused.
I think its amazing how you couldn't understand that, its not exactly a relevant theme to men in their 30's and 40's and for that matter any age, I mean I loved the Smurfs when I was a little kid but I don't want a pin themed after them, with all the cool themes out there why Jack went with a 30's film based on dancing and singing is beyond me, glad those who love it have it but man what a let down, Hobbit isn't much better either and I see alot of posts declaring a desire for Harry Potter, WTF is going on here? Its me I know but come on, Blade Runner, Robocop, Running man, The outer Limits not to mention all the great video game franchises that so many of us grew up on, Zelda or Wolfenstein, Resident Evil and Half Life and look what we got.
Quoted from Hazoff:
Its me I know but come on
you guys must have missed this, I'm not saying ur not a man if u dig WOZ but its not exactly popular within the male friends that I hang out with, I've never heard "lets watch a film, what will it be, MadMax or WOZ? does that seem normal to you, maybe. To each his own, and like I said glad that people like it, I just want something with an edge from JJP and thats certainly isn't Harry Potter or Toy Story.
Quoted from TheLaw:
The point is it's just a theme...which doesn't mean that much. Take your collection, I have, LITERALLY never heard someone say "Let's watch Johnny Mnemonic...that's a great one!" I mean...no one would say that in front of people that I know anyway; they'd never live it down. But it's a game you like.
The flip side is, I've seen Robocop probably 100 times, and I have LITERALLY never said "Damn let's play some Robocop this pin is sweet."
Comparing WOZ to Madmax is an extremely far leap from comparing JM to Robocop, JM's cheese level makes it great like so many 90's bad sci fi actions films, so bad that they were good, I would rather watch Dolph as the Preacher over anything in WOZ but who cares anyway. As for Robocop its a great pin. I'm done with this.
Now take it easy, BabyMetal Pinball, I gotta say as a 40 year old man and a long time fan of brutal death metal from the late 80's to present that is one seriously heavy riff and the dance moves work perfectly, dance moves with Death Metal, I even like the pop chorus, just works so well together, could make a cool pin and is somewhat family freindly, these chicks are 18 and 16, Its normal to want to hate this but I dare you to try. I can't believe it myself how much I'm digging it.
Quoted from blastbeat:
No it's all good man, I'm kind of snobby on the inside with metal, but still like a lot of non underground stuff. I've heard and watched vids of them before and totally fine with it. Some nice riffs for sure! But we should keep on dreaming if we think a death metal pin is coming anytime soon lol. Oh...just found out I am going backstage to cannibal corpse end of next month!
I'm a big fan of Six Feet Under
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:
Led Zeppelin theme , coolest band that ever was....this would make a great table!!!
Well Black Sabbath is the coolest with Slayer almost tied, as much as I enjoy LZ music isn't right for me with pinball, need speed, speed is what we need. Actually I change my mind Slayer is the coolest, lets make it happen.
I grew up with this version and its my favorite, not that I'm watching it still or anything.
Well for you maybe and me as I'm not a fan of either but alot of people really like WOZ and TH, I think PL's game will elevate JJP to a new level, I hope so, also looking forward to a SciFi theme from them.
