I agree, everything looks awesome except the characters in the back glass.

#202 3 years ago

Characters in the backglass look great!

Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

...and that's the beauty of it all....

#204 3 years ago

I'm not a big fan of the characters on the backglass either, but it's easy to overlook both because of how fantastic everything else looks. It's not "needs a new translite" bad like GOT (Thanks Riot!).

#205 3 years ago

Hopefully Aurich will do an alt backglass and the game will be perfect.

Yep, it's the only thing I don't love about the machine.

Weird, I've already been sending Zombie Yeti questions if he will make an Aliens backglass.

Thanks, but I have no talent for something like that.

I only know what I like and don't like when I see it.

#213 3 years ago

Well that's a disappointing link

For anyone who missed it later on, here's a recap:

The real recap is it's a video showing off the audio of the machine.

Damn I'm worried that tune is gonna get old real quick

Ever played the Ghostbusters on Pinball Arcade that has the theme on a like a 1 minute long loop? It can't possibly be worse than that.

Ha nope never have...ouch that does sound bad though.

I saw the live stream, well if you call 2-3 minutes a live stream, lol. Thankfully they don't appear to be using the theme with vocals for the games main track. I thought I heard some other type of music as well, maybe for a mode, that sounded very good. I didn't hear the vocals until after the game was over which seems like a good time to hear it.

I also heard some cool audio effects, a few lines from Dan Aykroyds character (pulled from film) and a custom Ernie Hudson line or two.

For adding players they really need to have the "yoooo" , "Rayyyy", "Egonnnnn" lines play with each button press.

Perfect after ColorDMD gets another $400.

Another vote for the artwork/cabinet/playfield and vote against smash faced Bill Murray et al.

#221 3 years ago

I guess it's time to pop my pinball virginity. Never bought a new pinball game before but this will be the first, ordered a premium. Have to have it, just way too much nostalgia to resist and it looks awesome. Now the waiting game begins.

#222 3 years ago

They all look great, I'm surprised the pro isn't getting talked about much, it looks fantastic ,the same way Metallica pro does ..not a game changer of difference by the looks of things.

#223 3 years ago

Got myself a LE. A few are left but price has increased but hell, what's 300$ on a purchase that large.

#224 3 years ago

FYI... I called around today and there are several LEs still available

#225 3 years ago

I think the backglass is amazing.
We could have been stuck with the traditional big actor faces photos.

Quoted from eggbert52:

I'd say pinball is back people.

Yeah, because GOT and Kiss SUCKED!! <end sarcasm>.

#228 3 years ago
Quoted from jathomp22:

The feature matrix for the pro says it's a "Bi-directional ramp." I would interpret that as it goes up the right ramp over and down the left ramp. Like WWE.

That would be awful. It would basically be likens ramp reject.

#229 3 years ago

He's been pretty quite about the artwork on Ghostbusters, which is unusual for a new release.

Well kiss isn't saving pinball that's for sure...

#231 3 years ago
Quoted from extraballingtmc:

Quite frankly, GOT ain't doing it either. Aesthetics matter to me.

Can't wait for my GB LE.

#232 3 years ago

So it looks like the lighting is exactly the same on the Pro as it is on the Premium and LE. That is as important to me as any feature. The extra features on the LE / Premium don't appear to be that significant. And the GB playfield looks amazing for a Pro model. Gameplay will be the same......

I was leaning towards a premium but the more I think about it the more I think the Pro is a better value

GoT is a great game right out of the gates. For diaper rubbers, the LE looks pretty good.

I'm in for a pro, but I usually would be anyway as I don't usually like the prem/LE lighting.
What worries me is the lack of that ramp on the pro...I don't like that at all.
And this bi-sexual ramp thing could turn out to be a disaster.

#234 3 years ago

Good catch. The matrix for the game notes such for "lighting". I've really enjoyed the upgraded lighting on newer Stern prem/le machines. If GB has the same on the pro that is a big plus.

I heard that he did not like the lettering on the inserts, but liked the artwork otherwise.

Well it depends how you look at it...really it's more the prem/LE have the same as the pro. Usually the upgraded is like 60+ color range LEDs and more of them, this seems to be the 7 color range/ only 7 inserts.

EDIT: ER sorry...the color sprectrum is no diff'rent just the amount of them. GOT Prem/Le had 63 inserts and this has only 7

Are you Joking? Did you miss the whole "Kaneda did a 15 minute Podcast about Aurich's comments?"

Aurich did 2 facebook posts. Pretty Simple. He said game looks sweet but wishes is was not red dots display. Does not like the thin comic book font on inserts but "loves" the artwork surrounding them on the playfield.

So overall he loves ZY's artwork but anything negative got blown up and compared to Alien and went stupid unnecessary trash fest. Usual BS.

I'd bet a kidney that Kiss outsold GOT. Just because there are "code problems" at the moment doesn't mean it didn't sell well!

I don't know I think the magnetic slings could be a huge difference. Might not be good or could be fantastic. I will have to wait and see the difference in gameplay with that. I also think the Ecto Goggles, subway ball lock and crossover ramp might make some big gameplay differences.

#241 3 years ago
Quoted from Khabbi:

Kiss, GOT, TWD, AMH, The Hobbit, all went into my comment that pinball is back!! I was just too lazy to type them all but you're right.

#242 3 years ago

Think this will be a big hit for coin takers too.

Hope i will be able to find one in the wild.

#243 3 years ago

OK it's been 36 hours and the impression has worn off. Where's the freaking game play video!!!!

#244 3 years ago

I also think the Ecto Goggles could be an huge game changer. subway ball lock and crossover ramp. Seems to me there are some big gameplay differences.

Ecto goggles w/ LCD screen/hologram, way better ramp setup, magnetic slings, more interactive and better Slimer toy, better 3D molded buildings, subway ball lock, etc make it totally worth the reasonable increase in price to have the full & complete game.

That's like buying the a BluRay of Ghostbusters the movie with missing scenes of the movie for $10, versus $14 for the full uncut version. Sure, you save a few bucks, but you will always think.. should have spent the $ when you could to get the entire experience. Just my opinion, but I do understand the financial side of things of course.

Meh...always 2 sides to this one. I don't have kids, so a tiny "halogram" doesn't excite me at all. Plastic buildings and all that stuff is cool but not worth me paying monies for...and same with physical ball locks...Met Pro was great.
Any word on what the magnetic slings really means?

EDIT: A lot fo this comes down to perhaps one of these being a "keeper." If I was going to keep GOT forever, the upper PF might be great, but if I'm just going to sell it then it's not as big of a deal.

To be honest, the real reason I am considering the premium is because of the hologram. If they pull it off and it looks sweet and not a dud, that would honestly be one of the coolest "novelty" toys in pinball... at least that's my opinion.

Fair enough. I hope you've headed down to Springfield to do the Lincoln museum...they got some frikkin ghosts/halograms in that joint that blew my mind. For real.

I just hope the hologram is not like the ST laser!

#249 3 years ago

should have:
"We got one" (first job for GB via phone) for ball lock call out
"Ghostbusters what do you want" for start/credit
And just about everything Bill Murry says could be used somewhere.

So many great one liners in this movie if used correctly could have some of the best call outs ever!

#250 3 years ago

I love the idea of the ramp going under the playfield (mostly because I thought of it 3 years ago (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/where-is-the-innovation-long-and-rambling-rant/page/3#post-528563)

Stern really did an awesome job on this!
