This game looks dope as hell...I'm so pumped to get mine, will be awhile as I'm towards the back of the line on the CE.

I love that the layout is different, and unique...I love the art on this game, I can't wait to see it in person.

#3052 31 days ago
Quoted from Agent_Hero:

I read that line as saying GNR shoots like a dog.

You're right, I read it again and see that now.

#3053 31 days ago

I'm still hyped as hell! Game already looks incredible to me - from the very first trailer till now, it hasn't disappointed. Code doesn't concern me one bit - even looks pretty decent to me as it is now, but we all know it's early and will be continuously polished over the coming months. As massive fan of the movie I think they've done a brilliant job so far - this will be my first Spooky pin, but I'm loving the fresh layout, the art, the shots, everything - keep it up guys!

I'm fully on board!! Let's do this Spooky!!

#3055 31 days ago
Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

Man is the excitement down for Halloween or what? I am still excited for it.

I was hyped until I got to play it a bunch and my personal doubts and fears of the layout really set in. No firmware update is gonna fix that.

Not having pop bumpers hurting this title?

It’s so jammed pack! I didn’t even realize it doesn’t have pop bumpers looool.

What did you not like about it?

#3059 31 days ago
Quoted from kciaccio:

I don’t think pops are needed. I think this may be more of a personal taste issue, I don’t like the upper playfields. Also the game favors a boring drop scoop that’s even the gutter for the upper playfield.

Well, some will just not like it. That’s cool.

Ditto...hyped...patient, but hyped. Not much in the thread, so content until I get the call...

#3062 31 days ago

I’m still stoked to get mine. Everything continues to look really great to me… except for maybe some of the early rough/repetitive animations that don’t always share the same art style.

Do you have a game on order?

#3064 31 days ago

I'm still as excited as day 1. I think this is just the usual lull before the storm. Some people ordered out of FOMO and have since moved on to the next shiny object. Some played and decided it wasn't for them, as no pin clicks with everyone. A new (and pretty amazing looking) pin has since been shown and has lured some away. Some people quite frankly like to complain to hear themselves complain. The less vocal majority of us are still excited and still on board. I am not seeing anything out of the ordinary with the usual pattern playing itself out here. Happens with almost every game.

#3065 31 days ago
Quoted from zaphX:

Have they said if the rules are going to differ between the games? Or will it be the same ruleset with different skins?

Luke mentioned on the Ultraman thread that the code is very similar but could deviate in the future.

#3066 31 days ago
Quoted from metallik:

Edit:
Also, perhaps they can create a sound effect that only plays when an inlane eject occurs. Think of the scoop and saucer eject sounds we always hear in Funhouse, Whirlwind, etc. If the eject sound has top priority (always playing over other sounds when neeed), it won't take long to associate it with inlane feeds.
(My mind just thought of Keefer getting completely hosed by a soundless Tron scoop eject in a tourney... sounds are important!)

The lights flash and their is a distinct sound only used to tell players the ball is coming from the lifter. It takes like 3 games to get accustomed to this change in traditional game play, it makes handling multiballs challenging and fun. Everyone will be fine.

#3067 31 days ago
Quoted from Ty-Arnold:

Do you have a game on order?

I did but I was able to unload my spot. Admittedly I preordered too early, I should of waiting until they did the gameplay video. The FOMO was strong cause I love the art and the horror theme.

#3068 31 days ago

Still super excited for this PIN and haven't seen anything that remotely changes that. I do wish we were seeing more evidence of a production ramp but that's just my own general impatience and nothing else...

I think as far as this goes we should get a little bit of confidence! We were shut down for 10 weeks during covid and still got Rick and Morty done ahead of schedual! A ton of jobs out there right now so hiring is tough but we will get there! It all takes time

Thank you for the response!!! I'm just impatient and I'm sure you're doing all you can to make them as fast as you can.

Jeff, just move up to a lower number like I have done twice already lol. I'm still trying to move up but its tougher to sell my current spot as too many are listed right now. I started at CE 505 and now sit at 254

Mine is lower than 254 already so no need to move up. I'm honestly not in any hurry I'm just naturally impatient.

Want to challenge yourself? We can trade spots lol

#3074 31 days ago

I'm still excited for this....just been laying low due to the negativity around here lately...# 78 here and hoping for the call late this week if my math is close.

Who knows, I'm 15 ahead of you and have not gotten the butter no butter email yet (which should come three weeks before it goes on the line). If they do a 50 distributer batch first, that may not be coming for a few weeks still.

Great number to sit at. Not too soon and definitely not late. Give time for bugs to be worked out. I am at 481 and ok with that.

Spooky direct orders go out first starting with # 51. If they are finishing up the first 100 VIP machines this week as they stated, I see no reason why we should not be getting the call this week.

I like your thinking. Fingers crossed.

we'll see - The anticipation is part of the fun!

Someone posted a while back that you guys were trying to see if you could add another 2 balls to code so 1 would always be loaded in the 2 lifts to cut down on that long wait time, is that true?

Certainly still on the agenda but right now #1 priority is getting you guys the on screen content you want to see! We will definitely revisit that later on but for now I think everybody generally really loves how the game plays and it does play way faster than you would ever expect out of 3 levels!

Agreed, please keep priority on the Sound and animations.

I like the flow. The wait is anticipation…like Michael popping out. It’s another unique feature they shouldn’t change…IMO.

#3084 30 days ago

Still in as well, but that insert is a major eyesore and needs to be fixed.

#3085 30 days ago

100% should be the main focus.

Quoted from kciaccio:

#3086 30 days ago

Layout looks unique. Nothing ‘cookie cutter.’ Software updated later. Not worried about that.

#3087 30 days ago

You mean like ‘You Snooze you loose?’

That wasn’t a deal breaker for SM popularity.

How’s bout hair dick on LOTR LE? There’s far worse examples over the years.

Agreed. Don't care about the insert at all. Give me cool AV immersion and I won't even notice it.

Drove to North End Bar tonight to play it .Brought my 13 year old for the ride but Halloween is in the bar section so I sent him with a handful of quarters to go play Dolly ,Monopoly ,and Baywatch ,needless to say he’s still mad at me lmao.Big Time eye candy,shoots fast,both uppers are fun (hoping there’s different ways to shoot the house as you move on in the game and maybe a left/right callout shot scenario dodging Micheals blows ?),shooting for the hedge multi ball was fun and easy passing left flipper to right ,I had a hard time hitting the grave but might’ve just been me.To me,If it’s going to stay where your locked out of sanitarium while in the house mode I’d suggest the machine go dark and use the jackolantern from the opening credits with the one on the playfield only lit flickering in unison .It takes 7-9 seconds to drop from the house until it’s on the right flipper and this would be real cool to see happen after all your “starting over” and what better way than to go to the start .Great job so far guys
