Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

Ernie Hudson for sure. I'm really hoping they add Aykroyd.

the orginal leak I heard of GB was probaly 1 year ago and it was specifically that a GB game was coming and this had been confirmed via a source claiming Dan was doing recordings.

To me the question is will the game have voice clips cut from the movie(s) from all the actors.

Quoted from DCFAN:

I can't see why not. Can't imagine Stern hiring and actual actor from the movie for custom voice work, then hiring voice actors to do the lifted scenes.

That would be a horrible mess.

#4754 1 year ago

Stupid question...does the sound of ones voice have property rights?
Meaning can a quality impersonator create new lines, in the voice of say Dan Akroyd
be used....

#4756 1 year ago

There are SO many great quotes from Ghostbusters (that could also be used as humorous pin callouts), that I would be extremely surprised if they didn't use the actual dialogue from the films. Seems like there are enough lines that could work well for the pin that they wouldn't need to record additional voice actors, especially if they got Ernie and Dan to do the custom callouts needed.

It's been done... think of PoTC or even Austin Powers.

And more recently, Avengers.

Fred Young did that for Bally/Williams for years. Stern too.

Quoted from frolic:

The company is not exactly known to be marketing titans. They still promote their machines with flyers, and going to trade shows. Not exactly cutting edge. It is what it is.

But in all fairness, they also promote their games with excellently produced game videos (and include little hints in the background of forthcoming games), appearances on The Price Is Right, non pinball events like The Consumer Electronics Show, their factory is featured on geeky shows like How Its Made and Made In America, featured in The Pinball Arcade, and even on shows for boring housewives like Good Morning America.

Short of producing a virtual tour on Oculus Rift, how much more "cutting edge" can they get?

I agree, and these aren't "consumer goods" (even though we treat them like they are), certainly not for civilians.

If I were to fault Stern marketing in any way, it's that they should do more to drive location play, and direct people in that direction (beyond GS lecturing expo goers to get out of their basements). No one is going to drop $5k+ for a pinball just because they saw it on Price is Right, but they might be motivated to go to Dave & Busters to play it (if D&B had a pinball).

Stern used to have a "pinball finder" on their website, but when Pinside's finder totally eclipsed it, they obviously took it down.

But it was ahead of it's time back when they did have it.

Totally agree on the location thing. First they need to offer all modern games on digital. Within the app, it shows the closest location where you can play the real thing. So obvious....

#4764 1 year ago

One of my favorite quotes from Bill Murray when Sigourney is walking with the orchestra dude and he says

"Who's the Stiff"

I want that on ball drains

#4765 1 year ago

Farsight's Ghostbusters iOS pinball game has lifted audio clips from the movie. Must be included with the license or fairly cheap to add-on.

#4766 1 year ago

Pinball browser will surely solve all of our callout woes. I'm not worried about it either way.

Obvious for a consumer... Not necessarily in the old operator pov.

I'm for it, but I understand why some are against it. It lets the competition know where viable locations are (to try to steal) and it's not past some ops to try to hurt their competition

Looked through the last 3 pages and didn't see this mentioned, but in the months Replay Magazine (trade journal) stern has a full page color ad for ghostbusters and states they will start shipping mid-March. I have taken pictures of the pages so you can see for yourself.

I'm calling you out as a liar. That's not real!

#4770 1 year ago

Get hyped!

#4771 1 year ago

Please keep reality out of this thread. It is for speculation only.

#4772 1 year ago

Yo, dang. Hype level 1000. Beams of hype crossed.

#4773 1 year ago

That's a thread eject right there! After 96 pages of speculation, I know one when I see it!

#4774 1 year ago

OK Gary, the Slimer is out of the containment unit - show us the official photos!

Megatron for Transformers was a voice over actor also.

#4776 1 year ago

BOOM. Ghostbusters shit is real.

"debut at expo" I assume means at TPF?

Quoted from Whysnow:

I hope so! I'll be there.

#4780 1 year ago

There are Pros on the floor built already for export, it will be at TPF I'm sure in a few weeks.

#4782 1 year ago

Wow, getting damn good at photoshop!

#4783 1 year ago

So, where are all the doubters now?

#4784 1 year ago

Counting the days to TPF. Can't wait to see this and all the other new machines.

4768 posts of GB speculation to finally get to this. I think it's time to change the title of this thread.

Is that the comic book art in the ad?

#4786 1 year ago

hot damn, glad i decided to take the trip to TPF!

Can I do that? Would love to run a strike through "speculation".

I am pretty sure you can edit your own first post, including the title.

#4789 1 year ago

say you want one of these in the US. Who is the best distributor to deal with?

Trent. Tilt Amusements.

So the composition of this is different than the earlier leaked translite art. Bill Murray and Erie Hudson look the same but Ramis and Aykroyd look like different drawings. Could this be the art for the Slimer LE translite?

Or just a flyer clipping in the different characters?

#4796 1 year ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

I thought that as well but since 2 of the characters are different drawings and slimer was front and center I thought it might be alternate translite art. Aspect ratio is off for translite dimensions as well.

#4797 1 year ago

Ok. Robin. Can you add Ghostbusters to the game archive list so we all can add it to our wanted lists?

#4799 1 year ago

Playfield design and game code for this machine? Anybody know who?

#4800 1 year ago

Trudeau did the design and Zombie Yeti did the art. Who did code?
