We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

    (this is a lighthearted post)

    I had a coupon from a previous purchase and decided to bang out some stickers based on how I feel about the current state of new machines. I hope I am not the only one.

    I’ll stick with the old school Wedgheads. I was talking to a friend the other day about this very topic. I personally don’t care to much for bands In general. But 90 percent of the newer games seam like they have a band/movie theme. Where is the creativity? Although the Munsters is a fun game to play. Ha

    I love the completely creative themes. IE: Whirlwind, Earthshaker, Dialed In, Lexy Lightspeed, Medieval Madness, TOTAN, TNA, No Good Gophers, etc, etc.

    I'm 40

    Most pinball themes struggle to capture my interest

    Guess I'm too old for some & too young for others.

    Woe is me

    Thought you might a "mousin around" and stock in a cheese company? Where's Moe and Larry?

    Let's see how many understand that.

    I could have also had them say Licensed Pinball Themes.
    But the low hanging fruit that is the Heavy Metal Band license is just wearing on me. Some have great layouts and gameplay too! The themes are just played out.

    "Ancient Aliens on Ambien" would make for a great theme.

    For you that don't have a clue what I'm talking about. Everytime Curly would see a mouse he would freak out and the only way to calm him down was giving him cheese.

    Sorry to crash your thread.

    Wedgeheads are the BEST!

    I really love movies, so i gravitate to movie themed pins. I will admit that MM, TOM, MV, and Totan are some of my favorites, however.

    Need a Motorhead pin or retheme or a retheme Metallica to new Tales From The Crypt version since it’s similarity.
