I think they are up to running 85 a day out the door. That's a shitload of pins!

At first i was a hard NO on Zeppelin because of GNR and Steve Ritchie was doing it and i haven't liked any pin he's done since Ac/dc.

Then i decided, while playing JPLE, EHOHLE, AIQLE and STHLE, all in a row yesterday, how great Stern is on a roll right now.

Surely Ritchie wants to reclaim some glory from the young guys with a huge hit.

So yeah, in for another LE!

Not so sure about this? I got my AIQ Prem yesterday with a build date of 12/9?

They have two lines running so not certain. That doesn’t jive with their production schedule that has been circulating pinside either.

Quoted from BigT:

I don’t understand DMCA. I haven’t heard of this until now, did a google search and still don’t understand. Can you give me cliff notes reason why a LZ game can’t be streamed.

Cliff Notes version:

DMCA = Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Basically covers copyright law on the internet. One tool it provides copyright owners is a DMCA takedown, which is a way for you to say things like "hey, you used my music in your video without my permission". On YouTube that usually means your video gets demonetized, so you can't make money off ads on it. Sometimes the opposite happens, and ads get put on it, but the money doesn't go to you, it goes to the copyright holder.

On Twitch it's a little different, they don't have the tools YouTube does. So long story short, if you get hit with a DMCA takedown, a copyright strike, Twitch will just delete your video archive (the VOD).

If you get three of those strikes? Account nuked.

Here's the thing, and where it turns into a problem. Stern doesn't have to flag Jack. The band doesn't have to know or care. There are copyright bots that just crawl through streams, recognize songs, and auto flag it. You can get strikes for Led Zeppelin songs, played off the pin, even if Stern sanctioned the stream. The music is licensed for the game, not your Twitch stream, basically.

Anyways, long story short, if you play a game, pinball, videogame, whatever, that has music in it, you're at risk for a strike. A lot of streamers are on edge now because of it. Those three strikes could hit you all at once just from a few streams of LZ, ACDC, and Kiss games. Never really know.

I have a friend who got a strike on YouTube from a video three years later. Bot found it, sent the notice. It sucks.

Do we know who is doing the art work?

I'm in for an LE by the way...

Can you make a Black Sabbath edition? Then you can use that fan on top to blow a line of coke into the player's face for "Snowblind Multiball."

#160 11 months ago

While I appreciate the mnpinball excitement, he was also very excited for BKSOR and Munsters. I’d argue those are the worst recent by Stern.

Hope the game is great however.

Yup... and I got my Star Wars Comics Premium on Thursday with a build date of Nov 24, 2020.

#162 11 months ago

I tried. Can’t into the band. Went through quite a few tracks and i hear an old Harley rider roll up in my head with three buddies and vests that dont fit. Drinking shit bud light and chainsmoking cigarettes while eating bbq.

Nothing exciting about that music. Next...
In for an LE.

I hope they do not put Stairway to heaven in the game. I cant stand that song.

For anyone that doesn’t know Zepp all that well, here’s a playlist of songs I came up with from listening all day. I think these would work well with the game:

Houses of the Holy
Dyer maker
Ramble on
Black dog
Good times bad times
Fool in the rain
Misty mountain top
Dazed and confused
Whole lotta love
Trampled under foot
Dancing days
What is and what should never be
The Ocean
Friends (could be a cool eery mode)
Nobody’s fault but mine
The song remains the same.
Rock and roll
Heartbreaker
Traveling riverside blues
Immigrant song
When the levee breaks
Over the hills and far away.
Communication Breakdown
Hey hey what can I do
Going to California (game over music)
Kashmir
Bring it on home

#168 11 months ago

Just make a Spotify playlist with those songs and put it on random.

Don’t think the game will have 27 songs. Maybe 12?

Didn’t say that. Said these would work well with the game. I say 12 max and I hope I’m pleasantly surprised with more.

Nice list. Now we just need a peek (or three) into the art package with a seasonal adult beverage to properly prepare for Tuesday!!

Great list and I agree, like patience for GnR, you have to get Going to California in there somehow!

#174 11 months ago

IMO the easiest thing would be for Stern to have used the footage and music form Song Remains the Same .

All good, if they can only have a few I'd say:

Black Dog
Rock and Roll
Communication Breakdown
Immigrant Song
Whole Lotta Love
Tangerine
I Can't Quit you Baby
What is and What Should Never Be
Since I've been Loving You
Heartbreaker
Celebration Day
Battle of Evermore
Kashmir

ok, heavy on the early stuff...that's the way I roll!

#176 11 months ago
Quoted from EMpins16:

I agree it would be an easy solution, but I hope they use studio tracks. At least for the audio. And I am also hoping for a couple of deep tracks, even though that is not the style of Stern Music pins.

When losing the ball - Nobodys fault but mine clip
Game Over - Going to California

Would love Achilles last stand, Ten years gone, The Rover, over the hills and far way, The song Remains, four sticks, When the levee breaks, Friends, What is and what should never be, How many more times and Immigrant song. But realistically I might get the last one, if lucky.

Oh well, any Zepp would do, I guess. Happy it is happening!

#177 11 months ago

Gosh too many good songs, I’m hoping for 15.

#178 11 months ago

Stairway to heaven as an attract mode with some kind of topper interaction would be cool.

#179 11 months ago

Stairway is so polarizing; some love to hate it. I say it is and should only be a wizard mode. You have to work to get there/heaven. It can’t be an easy reward.

I’m in for an LE.

#180 11 months ago

Listened to them a lot when i was a teenager, the only album i loved was Led Zeplin II but i also like most of Led Zeplin IV. I'll have to look at it to decide if i want one. Waiting on my gunners atm, that's going to be tough to beat.

I agree with this 100%, if used in game hard to get to.

Yes..attract mode is too slow for pinball.

atrract mode? you were agreeing with using it in wizard mode.

Anyone who whines that there are too many threads for this one can go themselves.
Led Zeppelin pin is a dream theme - can't wait to see the playfield.
I hear Rush/Foo Fighters are in the long term queue for Stern too.

A Rush pin is definitely my dream machine!!

FuckedIfIKnowPunkin

The point was hard to imagine the song during game play but if it was a once in a 1000 wizard mode type thing I can live with it and I do like the song.

More appropriate use would be a attract mode linked to topper or game over type coding.

Put it this way, I hope it is integrated somewhere but not during main game play.

#191 11 months ago

I could see the opening of Stairway as the game over music for a few seconds. For during the game they can in theory drop the needle wherever they want. On the other hand Stairway might be something Stern doesn't want to pay for and that would be fine with most people it seems anyway.

Funny.

If you don’t know the history of the Led Zeppelin game you’re running on your Virtual Pinball, it started life as a real pin I built, and then a guy in California turned it into a VP game.

It’s creation was documented here:

It plays music too. No LCD though!

Back in 1980 a friend of mine and I camped out outside a Ticketmaster location to get tickets to Led Zeppelin in Philadelphia. We got really good seats and were as happy as 12th graders could possibly be. Unfortunately John Bonham died three weeks before the concert. We both went from being on the top of the world to suffering a crushing blow that still stings to this day.

The idea of a Led Zeppelin LE pinball machine coming to my house in a month or two is more than a little exciting. I'm about to pour a massive margarita and pop in the Song Remains the Same Blu-ray to celebrate.

Nope. Not at this stage.

I would never buy a pin just for whatever theme is on it.

If the pin works out in time to be a great pin, then I’ll consider buying it down the track.

These things are too f**king expensive these days just to purchase because it has some licence assets on it.

If I want to listen to LZ, I already have all their albums in my record collection.

#200 11 months ago

Forget putting any tracks from the Song Remains The Same. Pull from the O2 Celebration Concert. If your a fan you must watch it on Blu-ray and on surround sound. Jason did a great job filling in for his dad.

Song Remains the Same album recording quality is not their best and the band hated it and was not happy with that release but the label wanted it released.
