Quoted from TheLaw:

That's literally what a teaser video is.

I’ll give you that, BUT that has to be literally the bare bones least amount of info possible. No flashes of art on the pf, or music playing that will be in it? Or ... anything? At all? Nothing. The good news unlike most teasers where the reveal is usually months or years away I think we will get a reveal way sooner than that which makes this teaser so ridiculously void.

No one read my post?

I did but I thought you were teasing!

#403 1 year ago

Is there one for Sale yet, posted in the Pinside Market??

Quoted from Fytr:

That gold lettering has me worried about the art package...

Attempt #3 to sell WWE LE trimmings incoming ...

#406 1 year ago

In the coming days, I for one am looking forward to blurry low res pictures on IGN followed by higher res pics 4-5 days later on social media followed by 2 weeks later, a Jack Danger stream live from Sterns factory after hours on a Wednesday.

Quoted from arcademojo:

Nailed it! Home run teaser!!!
Am I the only one that thinks this was a good job? Come on fellas, no need to be afraid of a Pinside shunning. Let’s admit it was pretty good.

Whatever it is that you’re smoking. Pass it on to me

Snoop Dog next!

What an amazing reveal,take my money now!!!!!!

I agree but it's a pinside problem. THEY NEVER SAID there would be any pics, or videos, or teasers; none of that.
They said some joker had an announcement aboot the next title, and he announced the next title.
Stern is religiously HORRIBLE when it comes to this stuff, yet every time everyone forgets.

EDIT: I think I'm correct. I see the original post had a video that said the points...I did not watch the video just read the points so if he said more I apologize.

#411 1 year ago
Quoted from RonaldRayGun:

Zach Sharpe is the director of marketing at Stern.

and here I thought that nobody could screw up a game announcement more than the Dankberg.

What a joke.

Quoted from RonaldRayGun:

Does he have any marketing experience or did they hire him just cause he was good at pinball?

#414 1 year ago

Anyone have a clip of the actual announcement? I saw the teaser, but missed the moment.

I don't have Facebook, can someone check out that announcement FB video in the first post of this thread and transcribe what exactly was being promoted? I'd be very curious to get clarity on that to see if Pinside made ourselves crazy or whether it was over promised.

#416 1 year ago

I would buy it

Cartoon dogs, pot leaf & beer bottle art

Martha Stewart Wizard mode

Legit

#417 1 year ago

With how drunk the dude that announced this was I figured maybe Stern was announcing "Octoberfest". What a joke!

#418 1 year ago

I was thinking with the Deadpool 2 movie coming out that Stern would have a Deadpool machine ready, like they did for GOTG.

I really don't get Stern's advertising strategy.... if there is one.

Hilarious! Thanks for leaking

Haha. That’s it. Exciting!!!!!!!!! So awesome.

#426 1 year ago

What in the name of sweet fark was that????!! It's like someone put some grade 8 student in charge of marketing.

Seriously, at this point I'm sure they're just doing this to piss off Kaneda.

#427 1 year ago

Super Hero’s or 1980’s bands...... pretty much all Stern makes.

#428 1 year ago
Quoted from Mahoyvan:

In waited on and off all day for that...

Yeah, seems like they just slapped something together for the teaser. Timed it right with Alice Cooper reveal and order Monday. One thing for sure, Eddie better be on the damn translite after all this waiting.

#429 1 year ago

yep, super hero, movie/tv show, and old fart rock band, rinse and repeat.

#430 1 year ago

Was this put together by the same putz who created the video submission contest for BMSLE?

#431 1 year ago

No matter how awesome this game will be, this song would definitely take it to the next level!

This is still by far my favorite mashup ever:

If you’re excited now wait until the 2020 “where’s the code” Iron Maiden threads

#433 1 year ago

Everybody already knew what the game was going to be, who cares how they reveal it. This should be a lesson, there hasn't been a surprise reveal since I started this hobby. If you waited all day to find out what we already knew you deserve to have a drunk guy tell you.

#434 1 year ago

Iron Maiden is a dream theme for me. I was really excited for some official news. I parked my butt in front of the tv and did something I’ve never done before...I watched competitive pinball for 3 straight hours and had a few drinks. Sure, the “reveal” video was short and lacked photos. I looked at it as a glass half full thing...I got to watch some amazing players do their thing. Maiden is actually coming and I learned quite a few things about becoming a better player. Time well spent.

We weren't hoping to FIND OUT what we already knew, we were hoping for at least some STILL PICTURES of the machine.

I looked at it as a glass full of shit thing and then they threw it my face and laughed at me.

That's the spirit !!! That's what it's all about

Quoted from rubberducks:

That will certainly be a kick in the nuts if they're re-using assets from a crappy mobile game ... and from what I've seen, Legacy Of The Beast tour promotional material is hardly the pinnacle of the band's associated art.

It's a mobile game. As for the music videos ... it's kind of derivative of the metal genre - they pioneered or used the 3D rendered videos very early .. and have stuck with it, including the 'primitive' style. Fans seem to like it.

The stuff looks fine..

The stuff on the web doesn't really convey the game well. This video does a bit better, but it looks great. But its much more focused on the 90s+ stuff and less like the early 80s stuff.

That art doesnt look bad but it doesn’t look near as good as the 80’s art did. Big mistake if this is the art they are going with.

#440 1 year ago

^^^ Totally agree, not the same.

Then we can all complain that Stern shoulda done this and shoulda done that. I can't wait...

Remember how the awesome Rob Zombie art translated to a pinball machine??? No so much

People have expectations of how pinball art "should" look... and its much more towards outlined, comic style and less like the painting style the Maiden album covers were.

I personally think that the RZ artwork is terrible but thats just my opinion of course. The new Iron Maiden artwork looks like childs play compared to the 80’s artwork. Its not terrible but it’s definitely not as good as the old stuff.

RZ wasn't a problem of the art or art style "not translating" to pinball but poor art direction. A more skilled art director who has done other pinball projects could have done a much better job with Rob Zombie (especially on the playfield).

#445 1 year ago

Hell this teaser vid from Rascal_H was more informative. At least it had a pinball in it!

(Here it is again hah)

You're also comparing basically portraits vs dynamic stuff that has to move, animate, etc. Different styles have different constraints.

What we do know is they've picked up on the Legacy of the Beast theme.. so it's not going to be the 80s art simply rehashed.

Since most people don't seem to be familiar with the game here.. I don't think people need to be freaking out. But it will be interesting to see if they shift the bias of the tracks and characters to the older stuff. The game has quite a blend.. even from the unpopular 90s themes.

For instance... Brave New World is very prominent in the game.. or even stuff from Dance of Death.. not necessarily deep track stuff, but there is a lot of that in there and not just stuff from the 80s

Things like the cabinet are stand-alone... and still just don't 'fit' even tho being great art on its own. I think people fixating on portraits or static painting style wouldn't find that simply mapped to pins all that attractive.

Well that was bogus... what a laughable anticlimactic marking stunt.
