Quoted from LTG:

Yes. Yes there is. I firmly believe it's that fiduciary duties crap.
LTG : )

Not sure what "fiduciary" means but don't think Capcom will claim a dime for this. Only a lawyer could get what it is or i might be wrong

I was making a joke. Fiduciary is at the bottom of your post.

According to the trademarks you posted. Things are fine. PPS has the trademark for BBB and KP. And since PPS is involved with CMG on the PC project, I believe they are up to speed on the KP project.

Quoted from FarFromHeaven26:

Wow, more persuasive evidence. It is practically 100% certain the announcement we will hear in maybe two months or so will be MONSTER BASH. Great news for sure (and I'll take the plunge) but I really do hope it will be CACTUS CANYON for 2019, and BIG BANG BAR for 2020 with ARABIAN NIGHTS, VOLTAIRE and KINGPIN with TOM as the titles to follow those.
The value of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON has reached the price point for re-make as well.

Cftbl is still 5k and under ... not ready for a remake yet imo...

Or it might not, I dunno, just saying.

I don't think Rick is dumb, and the stories about what Gene actually had are just stories. I have pretty solid second hand info, but who knows. Maybe Gene didn't have shit and Rick already went straight to Capcom.

I'm just playing anti-hype man, because I feel like this community sometimes just refuses to learn from the past, so someone's gotta be the grump to balance it out.

Totally fine..I mean it's not entirely his fault. I'm sure a QC guy that didn't make the magazine should be lynched as well... lol

CGC was talking about new technology...could it be P3-Roc system?

Quoted from bigd1979:

Afmr really hasn't sold a ton... le still available a year later and not alot of standards and special editions have sold from what i have heard. Mmr did ok with probably 1500 sold?

Just talked to CGC and All AFM LE are sold except for 1 and it is here at TPF in the pinball pro booth. Not bad sales plus all the standard and se sales.

#668 1 year ago

Well, since the discussion here has moved to the already-released CGC re-make games I wanted to make inquiry to those who would know the answer to my question. I am set to pick up a NIB MMR machine next week in person. (about a 90 minute drive) I have requested they add a shaker motor to this standard edition model. Is the shaker motor really the only significant advantage of the LE edition? Of course having it installed mitigates that aspect. Thank you! Total price everything included is $8,200.

Hahahahaha! Yes someone super astute and observant pinsider sprung the leak above on this thread, confirming what many have known for months. MB is imminent, meaning the suspense now shifts to what #4 will be. (Seems CC and BBB are vying for that 2019 spot!)

definitely want the color option for the dmd...other than a plaque, trim options, and shaker their basically the same game

Quoted from jazzmaster:

Exactly, that is why the CD has got to go! The Universal Monsters were all introduced between the 1930s and 1950s. A vinyl record would fit the theme much, much better.

Anybody want to break it to this guy that there were no distortion pedals, marshall stacks, or synths in the 1930s either?

Any details on the LE? (Topper, powdercoating colors, price)

I’m in the same position as you as I’m also receiving a nib MMr Standard next week. I researched this as best I could and to my knowledge if you buy the shaker motor then you essentially have the same game as the LE, as Ptownpin said. Neither the LE nor Standard comes with color dots, as both require the purchase of a chip for that (LE owners pay $200 whereas Standard owners pay $400). The LE does come with a numbered plaque on the apron and the choice of 3 different trim colors, but the Standard comes with the upgraded melamine covered plywood for the cabinet like they are using for AFMr, something the LE doesn’t have. Both have the plywood bottom and double clearcoat playfield.

Thank you so much JJ for that!!! Sounds on balance that the Standard is basically as fine as the LE. Chips can be secured at a later date is the colored dot option is desired! Best of luck for your machine! We are kin here with the same week purchase!

I almost bought an MMR remake myself and talked pretty extensive with an AD, and the only difference is the shaker, the “plaque” is actually a piece of paper. When I was thinking of purchasing one honestly I saw zero reason to spend the extra $ on the LE

Cgc has sold out of them but dealer's still have them.... just like the ce edition of potc is sold out but dealer's still have them available.

The discount on Color dots is nice, also I wanted black armor..lastly the biggest upside tot he LE was that it cost the same as the standard when it was available

3 reasons about remake succes:
- people are nostalgic of this era
- many games of this era feel unfinished and it is a pity
- manufacturer make these remakes right with new technology ( LCD screen, new system more reliable...)

Will see how the reliability is in 23 years like the originals.... Something tells me they will have some issues down the road.

It's a cheap and easy license to get.

Any chance they remake IJ? I'm guessing unlikely given Disney now owns that license and how much it would cost them.

Unlikely but not impossible sounds about right. Here’re my thoughts from a few weeks back, FWIW:

23 more years down the road, you think the originals games won't have more issues when they approach 45 years old ?

In 23 years anything can happen to any machine or company for that matter. It sounds like we will all be on fusion power generation by then....

23 years? That's a long time at the pace tech is moving. Probably more like quantum entanglement-enabled power straight from the inside the sun.

Flux capacitance wasn't the power source, though. Otherwise, he wouldn't have had to steal plutonium from the Libyans. I'm waiting for my Mr. Fusion to ship.

If batteries can power a car with four passengers at over 100mph for hours at a time, can pinball machines running on rechargeable batteries be far off? At a date in the future, energy usage is highly regulated by deep state and human (citizens) are limited to drawing power during off-peak hours. Hence the need for a battery powered pinball machine that can be juiced in 30 minutes that then played for a week. Lookout future, here we come.

Kids will be dumbfounded by grandpa asking if a pin's 3 AAA batteries have been changed recently. All kids know about battery power is that pinball machine cabinets come with one big battery filling the bottom of the cabinet. One doesn't simply replace the 200 pound behemoth, rather it needs to be periodically recharged by plugging it into the grid. Sheesh, old timers suk.

At a date in the future, energy usage is highly regulated by government deep state and citizens (humans) are limited to drawing power only during off-peak hours. Hence the need for a battery powered pinball machine that can be juiced up in 30 minutes that can be played for a week. Lookout future, here we come.

If that is the case in the future then households would need battery banks to power the fridge and everything else during peak hours so you wouldn't need a separate power supply for just the pinball game.

Anyways, if someone wants to power a pinball game today with batteries it can be done! No crazy special technology needed other than an appropriately sized battery and an inverter.

Not the power source but the storage and delivery system. 1.21 giga-watts!

By that time MM will have been remade AGAIN....

#696 1 year ago

yes.yes.yes.yes.yes.

If you are a pinballer and looking for new remakes, we have the machine for you. CGC will be re-making Eddy Current. That's a remake of Brian Eddy's newest pinball machine for 2019, in 2020. It will have neutron balls, and diverting pathways. If you like to scoop, there will be 2 of those. Take a trip on the orbit and get one today when it's 2020.

It will be downloaded right into your mind ala wet wired. First game will be Johnny Mnemonic.
