Quoted from benheck:

Why don't companies create paid DLC code packs for future seasons when a pin is released before a movie/series is over? Like the last 3 seasons for GoT, seasons 3 and 4 of Stranger Things for this pin...

These are games, not DVD box sets. They don’t need the complete stories to be successful games...they just need the essence, some iconic features, music, voices & an adversary of sorts. One season of Stranger Things has more content than the LOTR trilogy....so 2 seasons is more than enough content to create a game concept. Same with GOT, it’s not even really based on the overall story - you pick a house & try to take the throne...you shoot at a dragon. Simple distillation of the concept.

I don’t think there’s ever been a TV based pinball that took you through the entire tale of the series, and that’s fine - these are basically “board games” you play for 5 minutes.

TSPP/FGY - They feature iconic characters, bits, and quotes. Not everything from every season, but more than enough content for great pins.

Sopranos - Distilled to “rob shit, steal shit, kill people, strippers.” Featured cool theme song & voice clips. That’s all it needed.

CSI - Distilled to “collect evidence, solve crimes”. Made sense for a game.

24 - Kill terrorists.

Walking Dead - Kill zombies, survive.

GOT - Pick a House, take the throne.

There is no reason any pin needs “season pack updates” - Stranger Things will have enough content to be a game fans of the show will enjoy.

Custom speech from Hopper!

#1757 5 months ago

Not interested at all. Love the series, but just doesn't interest me as a pinball game.

#1758 5 months ago

I think I’m leaning Pro on this... As a home theater enthusiast, I’m worried there are too many variables to really pull off the projector effects. Looks like game play is nearly identical also. As long as clips are on LCD, should be good to go.

Looks like a Star Wars Pro with a worse theme?

Star Wars style ball launch is worrying. Hopefully won’t lead to launch-drain-save-launch-drain again like SW. if there’s not room for a normal shooter lane just feed the flipper, guys.

#1764 5 months ago

So My JP Premium ran me 12% more than the List of this as a Pro.....
Would one Trade a TZ for a Premium Version of Stranger things?..............

Quoted from westofrome:

Nothing new aboot auto launchers, SW issue is design not mech.

#1766 5 months ago

So the RGB LED craze is out of fashion already?

#1767 5 months ago

Game is voiced by the actor who played Hopper. That is PERFECT.

Not talking about auto launchers. I’m talking about the design that launches the ball into the middle of the playfield.

This has them doesn't it? Has plain white arrow inserts usually used for RGB

I'm sure its easy to make minor adjustments to keep it from going down the out lane if that ends up being an issue on some examples - like every other game.

#1771 5 months ago

best surprise (for me) is that Hopper is doing the call outs. That's really impressive stern. Good one.

I was hoping to get some Billy and Steve but I'll pinbrowser them in.

#1772 5 months ago

stern video on their FB is the pro if want to see it. wondering if they changed from the one kaneda leaked as the projector isn't quite ready yet (not seeing any LE video on their page) / we were seeing something premature? gives me hope it'll be brighter than what we saw earlier

#1773 5 months ago

It seems like the Demogorgan area is similar in some respects to AFM and the ship in the layout.

You have drops instead of the target bank, and angled standups behind them leading to a scoop under the demogorgan. It looks to be in a smilier location on the playfiled as the ship as well, with an orbit behind it. I really like this...I like everything about design/layout the ship in AFM, and if this feels similar, I'll be a happy camper.

Here's the Pro features video:


It's unlisted but it was already linked on their website.

#1775 5 months ago

Trailer with intro from Duffer Bros

#1776 5 months ago

Man they deleted the 11 ball lock magnet on pro at rear. 40 dollars it cost. Come on.

#1777 5 months ago
Quoted from TKDalumni:

This layout looks exactly like MM and AFM...

Yet it’s not. Haha

DLP LED projector.

It has a mix of purple and white GI. Neo is going to love it.

#1780 5 months ago

2 pop bumpers on a stern

[quoted image]

The LE really does look awesome!

Best one for a fair while - just on visuals.

#1782 5 months ago

pro side art is the same on both sides? Pro features shows it for a sec. Seems to be a mirror of the right. Is that how pros usually are? Dissappointed b/c that art just isn't great.

Also - no steve or Billy b/c Pro is Season 1 only art. FYI.

If i didn't absolutely love stranger things, I would prob pass but I need a fan layout and love ST

Quoted from timtim:

2 pop bumpers on a stern

Same as Star Wars, has a sling instead of the third pop to save space. Don’t think we’ll see single lower pops as long as Gary’s around.

#1784 5 months ago

LE looks like purple nightmare, but a premium may be nice.

#1785 5 months ago

The pro trailer shows a lot more of how the gameplay works.

Quoted from TheLaw:

No you are thinking about the R&M purple nightmare Law. This is purple done right. Looks great. LOL

Eddy, Mike and Lonnie all worked on rules and gameplay together. Eddy was a programmer before a designer.

Listening to Eddy on podcast now. They tried to make it accessible to beginners and experts like AFM and MM. But, for HUO, he wanted to make sure it was "deep enough" and had "variety" for the home use. Up to 50 modes. Very deep wizard modes and multiple goals along the way.

#1787 5 months ago

Looks pretty cool.

Hope to play one at some point.

#1788 5 months ago

Good thing I have seen stranger things and liked it but have no idea what the heck is going on so this will be a easy wait to see what else is coming out

#1789 5 months ago

Looking forward to the stream to see if the video clips they showed in the Premium clip do get moved up to the LCD screen. (Van flying, light bulb wall, mind flayer, etc.)

#1790 5 months ago

I'm curious if there's another drop target blocking the saucer underneath the demogorgan...like on AFM.

It would make sense for something to be there to make you earn the battle....you have to hit the target so many times before the path is opened up.

#1792 5 months ago

Will there be a middle school / high school evening dance scene where u have to hit the target to keep dancing ? Maybe a teenage make out scene instead ?

Quoted from jdroc:

As for shipping, so much for "out the door this week" - my distro says Pro/LE in January and Premium in February

I'd have to disagree, but stranger things have happened

At first I thought you were Jason Rufer! Congratulations!

#1796 5 months ago

Projector should make theme immersion awesome as you progress through the game and different modes you are in. Scenes change all over the PF to bring you into the theme throughout. "projector is so cool is doesn't matter when its off". LED projector

#1797 5 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

No drop target under there.

Oh well...not saying you're wrong, but are you 100% sure on that?
