Quoted from jorge5240:

I am looking for CQ DE Star Wars on the west coast. I have a beater now and I am either going to restore it or upgrade.
I love how simple it is and the theme is awesome for me. Takes me back to being 10 years old again!

I have no lead on a CQ DESW but CPR has DESW on its pre-order list so you could get a better than new PF as a good start!

Consider Firepower it is not Star Wars but a great rip off of the theme

Quoted from AlexSMendes:

Oh, so now you know me better tham my mom...., you know the games I've played, the food I ate, the places I've been.....
On the other hand, I see that you're a poor little sad hater that came into this thread just to bitch out about a pinball machine that you don't like...
Well, guess what? I don't give a flying fuck about you and all your pinball "experience"...

I know there is no way you have played most of the games in my collection. Many of the games you mentioned, are so fawking rare, you would be lucky to be graced in the same room as one.

But I gave your collection props where it was due.

Congo
TZ
TOTAN are great games.

But I also call out shit when it's warranted.

Xfiles
Star wars trilogy
Street fighter 2
Rolling stones (stern)

all are worthy of the DMD shitfest awards. Sure there are non dmd games worse than those titles. But in the realm of DMD's. They are shit heap that i've run into. And i've played almost everything. I'm not bagging on your collection in any way. I'm sure where your located, you don't get to run into games as often as we do here. You might have landed them dirt cheap, which would be great value for you. Regardless, on why you have them, i'm not bagging on you for owning them. I just bag on the games themselves because I think they are terrible from my personal experience playing them. Lost in Space seems to be creeping up on my shit list as well the more play it.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

how can you say a game is better or worse than another game if you have never seen or play said game?

I haven't played Dialed In yet. I know it will be better than Wrestlemania.

I am already on the list!

it's never good to judge something you havn't played. If I would have done that, I would have thought Metallica was going to suck because I don't care for the band. But playing it, it's pretty damn awesome. Something things you think are going to be great, turn out shitty and some things you think would suck, turn out really good. I have played WWE and DI, and it is better by a longshot. But when WWE came out, i was looking forward to trying it. The ring idea was new and kind of cool. But when playing it, it turns out it's not as fun as it looks.

DESW, I bought a fully restored one from teckman who used to work at HEP. Wow, a special dark side addition.

#58 3 years ago

Best one hands down is Star Wars Trilogy. Way better than Data East or Episode 1.

Any pics? I would love to see it.

I just take this as you have never played DESW or EP1. Not extensively anyway.

I have played DESW and SWEP1 extensively.

Never played SWT.

SWT is better.

that is true, I have never played it. See, you can tell which games people have or probably have not played without even knowing them.

#66 3 years ago

Data East Star Wars is best! Has the best sound package and is a lot of fun to play. However unless you get the new update its a one trick pony up the middle ramp.

It's the power of the FORCE!

This is the route that I went. Found a HUO / original owner game that was powered off for the last three years. A couple of weeks ago, it looked like this when I moved it into the gameroom..

Below is what it looks like as of tonight.

It still needs a couple things, I'm working on R2's legs at the moment but it is progressing well, keeping me busy while I wait on my Ghostbusters Pre-order that has been two weeks away for 3 months..

I get that people think the game is shallow but the anniversary edition / code update was a nice improvement. Color DMD + Pinsound modernizes it a bit. It still isn't a super deep game but we're having fun playing it and this is my second go-around with this title...

Good luck with your decision!

1. Data East Star Wars (with Chad's software)

2. Sega Star Wars LE
3. Williams Star Wars Episode 1

4. Sonic Star Wars

Don't know about Hankin's Empire Strikes Back or the Force machine earlier on this page. Never played those.

Hankin's Empire Strikes Back is a lot like Bally's Space Invaders, with some upper PF layout changes!

there is no way that was HUO looking like that when you started.

Or it got played a LOT for the Force and Sarlacc wear. Good find though.

SWDE with the newish code and a Pinsound is definitely the best of the bunch.

#74 3 years ago

to get force wear like that, you would have to have 20k + plays. Highly doubtful that could happen in a home environment. Plus with the targets blown out as badly as they are. I've bought a lot of home games in my time, and even ones with massive play with many kids, still don't get trashed like that one is. They may have bought it early in it's life, but i'd put money on it, that, that thing was on route for a year or 2 first.
