Sounds good for me!

I would like to hear more about the vari-target. It's seems different than the old school EM variety. Is it a pressure sensor? How does it work with the game rules? I guess they're saving that for later discussion. I'll stay tuned.

oups! Missed the vari target? Where is it please?

Quoted from colonel_caverne:

The Avengers Tower is the vari target. It has 3 optos and if you hit the last opto, it holds the ball a few seconds. If that shot was lit for some mode, the further up you get on the tower, the higher the value is, based on what I was hearing on stream.

Thanks.
Then Looks like a bit as GB pro. I really loved this right ramp.

Cool, I completely missed that!

Excellent stream today DeadFlip !

You two provided a great balance of back and forth banter, combined with basic rules instruction of the game AND pinball!

Havnt had a chance to watch it yet. Sounds like everyone was pretty pleased

#464 2 years ago

Agreed, the stream tonight was great. DeadFlip you were professional yet let you great personality shine through. I’m still pretty new to this hobby but know that you are the glue holding this together in the internet age, well done sir and keep up the good work. Can’t wait to watch your solo stream of the LE!!

#465 2 years ago

Just watched the stream.
Great job DeadFlip
New viewers and seasoned players would of got a lot of valuable info.
Great display of the pro.
Keep up the good work.

#467 2 years ago

Don’t know if anyone else has done so, but just rewatched the Premium/LE stream (after the Pro stream) - what a difference watching it a second time. Was way way more enjoyable to watch the second time as I start to understand what it was I was watching.

I did go back and watch about 20 minutes of it. Just random point in the middle, and yes, it made much more sense

Streams seemed great, game looks awesome.

I'm curious how much polish we'll get in the light show department though, at risk of jumping on the nitpicking bandwagon. If I had a critique in its current state, its that I felt the light show needed some beefing up - a lot of the completed shots didn't give me that jackpot payoff feeling. Nor was there often a huge "hurry and shoot here" build up. Some stuff like the gammaray spinner mode looked great though. Here's to more in that department.

Thumbs up on a Pro for me though most likely. I think my MET Pro is going up on the chopping block...

This is a massive issue I have with lots of games, pausing gameplay to create tension, and the inevitable explosion of then playing a mode, often multiball.

I love the up post on the inlane on JP2, when it locks in and pauses, though a bit long. I feel like light shows can often be added in those moments, along with building audio, callouts, and neato onscreen animations. So far, I don't see that in this game, though the Bruce/Hulk eye animation is a form of that.

Does anyone know rough dates on when these will start being available?

I know LE runs are first, then pros, then Premium.

My distro just said September release, but I imagine we’ll be looking at November/Early December for Premiums, especially in Canada.

They're running a super small run of Pros to get out to distributors, then LEs, then back to Premiums and Pros.

I have my deposit in for a Pro, and was told it's looking like late October for me.

Keep in mind the amount of light blasted on these games on stream will mute light shows.

I ordered a premium and I was mid to late October. I’m hoping some people dropped out so it’ll be even sooner.

#475 2 years ago
Quoted from wesman:

Because it makes ZERO sense context wise. And it's visually a focal point. (I think one is the Gauntlet, which makes sense. That was collected when Raymond ripped the shit out of those loops. Crazy skill!)
When I first saw them, I wondered if Stern was implementing an achievement/trophy system across their games. That...would be following suit.
Sony's trophies followed achievements by Microsoft. The concept makes some sense as a system wide bragging/incentive system, in an ONLINE user based ecosystem.

Well... with online coming...

Any LE owners get an updated shipping date from their distributors yet?

#477 2 years ago
Quoted from CoolCatPinball:

Message was the same - “shipping in a couple weeks.”

#478 2 years ago

Prepping for my LE delivery by better understanding the backstory to this game.

I can heartily recommend the Kindle version of the Infinity Gauntlet written by Jim Starlin ($3.99 Kindle DL)
I was able to read all 6 editions in just a few hours and all at one sitting
If this was the story that the game derives much of its structure, then it's no surprise that it strikes a more "serious" and sometimes dire tone. The comic certainly did
Heck, it was a story about the end of the universe and with little hope of stopping it.

Great story and read!

To celebrate Starlins writing ...
I got this signed Gauntlet to display next to the game!

Finally got the green light from the moderators on an owners thread. Had to create a new one though

Quoted from MT45:

Was going to download. $14.99 in Canada. So about 3 times as much even taking exchange into account. Guess it costs extra to ship bytes across the border.

That's nuts. Wonder if has to do with licensing?
For a few more bucks here, you can buy the paperback!

Don't think so, says the price has been set by the publisher (Marvel Worldwide). Just Canadians getting shafted. Companies have been doing it for years. Which is why I get the giggles when people in the US complain about shipping costs and stuff. They have no idea

#483 2 years ago

MT45 So why is it a Right hand Gauntlet - signed - globe ???

To be fair, shipping within the USA (especially frieght) is considerably more expensive than within Canada.

This is not say we don't get the shaft on many other things.

Quoted from TenaciousT:

Great question on why they chose to create it as right handed? Not sure
Globe is a spelling error ... should read "glove"

The item is actually a coin bank

Can we just do one owners club thread? Ridiculous starting all these club threads over and over.

I only see one club thread.

Yeah, just let this thread die. The moderators made this a hype thread. The actual official Owners Club thread is now approved and open. Owners can move on over there.

anyone have an issue with balls falling off the wire form that is fed from auto plunger or shooting black panther shot? Balls fall off wire form sometimes in the middle of play field on its way to returning to right flipper. Similar when you shoot bear kick ramp on taf and upon its return to right flipper ball falls off the wire form.

If you’re talking about the one that comes across the playfield you have to slightly bend the far left upper wire. It was an issue early on the LEs and that’s how a lot fixed it including me

Try the owners thread. This one is dead.

Avengers: Infinity Quest Pinball Machine Review (Stern, 2020)

What’s your thoughts after playing Stern’s AIQ?

#494 1 year ago

I think they made some good points for sure. This game is meant to be in a home environment where it can be learned and understood at each persons own pace. After many months of ownership I am still learning new strategies, and this offers me good value because I know how I play the game right now may change when I figure out something else.
For the casual player you don’t need to wrap your head around all the rules to have a good game. But months down the road you will want to learn the rules more and more to get bigger scores. This game has tons of replayability, that’s what makes it a A+ game for me.

Hard to argue there, that’s a good take
