Quoted from mbrave77:

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.

ya jp, deadpool, batman....and a million stinkers in between. would argue batman is just another boring fan layout too.

and their games are still 2000$ overpriced.

i want stranger things to be good i really do, eddy is the man. but what are the chances it actually is? I give it 10-20%. that's Stern's good stuff rate.

sounds great. Prem doesn't seem like a big diff. I will be ALL OVER this.

i will be very very happy to have those features on a pro.

#704 1 year ago

I’ve been waiting to buy a JP pro to put on location, now I’m thinking stranger things pro might be a good option. Definitely looking forward to the release. Do you think it will do well on location at a brewery?

#705 1 year ago

WOW...Sounds dope!!!

#706 1 year ago
Quoted from Rascal_H:

1) Back to the Future would ve cool

2) Stranger Things Peaking my interest.

3) The Fifth Element. Most definitely!!!

4) Lost Boys
5) Beetlejuice

if you guys are smart you will all hide your excitement and stop with the take my money crap or Gary will see this and increase the price on us AGAIN.

#708 1 year ago

"There are three places the ball can be held in a scoop/saucer"

Ugh.

"The Upside Down is randomized and turns off and on, it happens at random points in the game, it could happen at any time. It’s a hurry up mode and you have to do something immediately to get out of the upside down then you get back to the real world."

Double ugh. Sounds like Winter is Coming meets Rollergames "go for the wall!"

Seems cool otherwise though. Fingers crossed.

#709 1 year ago

It sounds awesome to me. The main toy in middle sounds complex and multi staged and interactive...which is perfect.

The projection stuff sounds amazing. The ball lock should be cool as well.

40 to 50 modes is nuts. Maybe they are at random so you only have the potential to play x amount in any particular game. I can't imagine having to play through that many modes to reach a wizard mode.

Worth it.

Hopefully they aren't cookie cutter bland like JJPOTC modes. At a certain point, more modes are a minus. Give me five good ones like Maiden.

#713 1 year ago

Game sounds loaded! Over 40 modes?! I may be in for an LE on this one depending on how it turns out. Soundd like Stern is partially targeting home buyers with this one with the high mode count. That's just the type of game I want

Unfortunately, I've heard from 2 different smaller distros that they're moving their Stern prices up by $100 in 2020, but they wouldn't specify why. Guess we shall find out soon enough.

Quoted from yancy:

5 modes is no where near enough for me to drop $6k - $10k on a game today. A game needs to have at least or around a dozen objective based modes + multiple wizard modes that work the entire playfield to drop that type of cash. Hobbit is a good example of a game with an incredibly deep objective based ruleset that works the entire playfield in unique ways.

JJP pirates has 125 chapter modes but yes they all play nearly identical (hit lit character shots). However, it's the character feature in that game that ends up putting a unique twist on how the chapter modes are scored / played. Also, all mulitballs and wizard modes in JJP Pirates are unique. Chapter mode scoring also plays heavily into how much you can score in multiballs and wizard modes.

#718 1 year ago

Anyone else refreshing IGN constantly?

#719 1 year ago

could this be the pin we have all been waiting for that takes new pins to the next level?
find out soon, i thought that pin was gonna be JJP WW.

#720 1 year ago

Killing the demogorgan with a pinball down his gullet would be a rather satisfying shot.

I hear what you're saying. It's hard to differentiate when you have that many. I think of JJPOTC "chapters" as 1 big mode.

CANT get to this weekinpinball link.. can someone post the summary?

I'm waiting for a "Should I cancel Rick and Morty for Stranger Things" thread.

That's the thing, they can't cancel.....without losing a grand. That's the price of FOMO

LOL. That gave me a good laugh. Probably true.

#732 1 year ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

Is it really confirmed yet? Ive been waiting for the announcement. Im either getting a stranger things premium or a star wars comic premium. So itching to see this

There would be a lot of tasty new titles out there 2020

Breaking away with the beast of both worlds
A smile that you can't disguise
Every minute I keep finding
Clues that you leave behind

#734 1 year ago

Difference is, I've disliked so many Stern pins - even the new ones, that I wouldn't order this until I could play it anyway, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

#735 1 year ago

Or they could sell their spot in line to someone who wants to get RM.

Probably Stranger Things will be around for a couple of years in production so people can get one anytime.

Pinball = peeps got $$$$

If someone bought R&M and this ends up being cool, they’ll get both.

Nice thing about Stranger Things from a buyers point of view: We can wait and see. No need to pre-order.

Right, I just bought a new SW from Stern which had been out for 2.5 years iirc so there was not any reason for me to buy SW in the week it was released.

for me i like to get the game when it comes out, having to wait 1-2yrs can be draining. once the features captures my interest i'm all in.

Draining? Seriously? You need a hobby....I mean..other than pinball.

LOL! Pinball is enough hobby

#742 1 year ago

I waited several years to buy Woz didn’t bother me a bit plus I was able to get the better 2.0 board version.

#743 1 year ago

I bought R&M. And if stranger things is good, I'll just buy that too.

#744 1 year ago

And you think you wouldn't have felt better if you got it when it came out?

Brian Eddy + great theme and new toys = epic game

Bought R&M, stranger things can wait. waiting for JJP to make an announcement

#747 1 year ago

worst part about Pirates is the modes. So generic - so snooze worthy. It's ultimately why I think the game is very good - not great. Now Hobbit, Alien - those are how you sell modes.

#748 1 year ago
Quoted from John_I:

Brian Eddy + great theme and new toys = epic game

Yep. This is how I see it.

#749 1 year ago

Bought a R&M, sterns quality and customer service is so bad I wont be buying a ST even if it looks great. So my money is safe.

compared to a JP, not sure it would.
