Quoted from drfrightner:

I don't watch the show. I watched the first season and said wow the special fx are so bad, the plot makes no sense, but I gave it one more season. Season 2 was the worst it was impossible to even follow it. Someone said watch season 3 its the best, but I couldn't even watch season 2.

WoW

I like show and love the music because the band Survive is awesome. Plus i grew up in 80s so i love all that stuff in the show. 1st and 3rd seasons are best so far. But yeah some like some don't

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

That's game's old, man.

I see you have not been following the thread. One of our fellow Pinsider's posted in this thread last night that he is awaiting his MMr from Stern since May. This is the very special, Stern-built MMr, not the one from Chicago Gaming. We need an update!

ive been around here long enough to know that people are way too negative. Just wait to see it first then starting shitting on it. That’s all I ask.

#604 1 year ago

The special “ fx” are old school because its supposed to be the 80s, man.

Just shitting on the hype - I'm sure the game will be equivalent to other recent Sterns.

Why? Isn’t more fun to be excited about a game?

Well as Kramer would say there are levels.

You know a lot of people here start having their fantasies aboot what a game will have early, and then get all butt hurt when the game doesn't live up to their weirdo ideas.

I’m 100% positive this won’t live up to my expectations. Doesn’t make me any less excited and won’t make me want to play it any less. Pinball is ALWAYS fun. Don’t like a game? Move on. Like a game? Enjoy it.

People who dislike stranger things this much - I just can't even comprehend. It's like not human. If you didn't like stranger things season 1, nothing will change your mind.

Quoted from aingide:

* "Telekinesis" ball lock up left ramp (multiple balls can "stick" to the backboard via magnet, like 11 pinning the demogorgan to the wall)

like Kiss LE/Prem, I guess?

I assumed so. I’ve still never seen the KISS premium in action to see this feature.

you.... cant follow..... stranger things?

same! In all my pinball travels I've still never encountered a Kiss Premium or LE to try that feature out on.
Still, with the combination of sound effects and accompanying video, it could make for a very strong effect.

#614 1 year ago

I'm 42, watched 3 episodes of Stranger Things season 1 and said "eh, not for me." Doesn't matter, hyped for some new Brian Eddy goodness. Bring it on!

#615 1 year ago

Still puzzled no one took screenshots of the alleged "webinar" that occurred for disties today.

Did you miss the 80s somehow?

Sure sure Chuck but you're what we call "a well balanced person," a rarer breed around here than you'd think.

#627 1 year ago

I hear that wont happen because Stern couldnt secure the EGGO license.

#628 1 year ago

Secret combos award eggos like JP DNA?

Honestly I really want this to be good. Attack From Mars is my favorite pin.

But if it is good, it'll be in spite of Stern, not because of them.

Spooky/JJP ask what features they can add. Stern ask what features can we take away.

It's really getting old.

Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

Such a waste to have Lyman on Elvira but maybe they figured it was the only way to get 15K for the super LE.

#636 1 year ago
Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

Because Stern reads this site and sees how many people say “I’ll only buy a game if Lyman is on code” and as a result only put him on Kapow $8k games like BM66 and EHoH.

I’d be willing to bet he never codes a Pro again...

People love to bash stern so much. I think their recent pins have mostly been great. JP, deadpool, batman, etc. i tend to prefer recent sterns over JJP games. Just my preference i know.

Im 42 years old as well. And I couldn't get into the show either.
Apparently this pin will be a game changer if done right.
I have spoken.....

Someone shares their own opinion they don't watch or follow Stranger Things and people blow up. Its my opinion! OMG! You like what you like I like what I like get over it!

Because Stern is saving that combo for "Jaws"

I just ripped my pants thinking about that one. Jaws by Eddy and Lyman would rule!

nah - it's like someone tells you they hate chocolate or they can't stand burgers and french fries.

It's something so off the wall that inherently, it's going to draw a lot of attention. It's mind boggling how someone could hate the show that much. but hey - you share your opinion, don't be surprised when others share theirs in reaction.

cmon doc!

The 7th Episode was friggin' amazing.

#646 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

I disagree:
- Spooky releases a game with zero toys in it other than a ship on a spring, only LEs, and at best ‘OK’ art... Stern gets better and better mechs (Trex eating a ball), releases three tiered models to appeal to Ops and home collectors, and gets great artists to do their games.
- JJP on their last game designs few interactive toys on Wonka, while Stern has been upping their game

It's always hilarious when people hate on something popular, then clutch their pearls when they get the invited, inevitable, and obvious pushback.

I refuse to believe you don't know what you're doing. It's impossible.

Ive heard its great but havent been able to play it yet. I also love Star Wars(i know not everyone does), Ghostbusters, GoG, star trek..... So I dont really get the hate. I know many dont like them charging more for game features in premium, but they bring the cost of ownership down for the masses with the Pro. So Im on board. Plus sometimes you arent really missing much with the Pro. I really want to get a black knight Pro sometime soon.....After stranger things
