The more I think about it Tron is solid in that department too. Good call.

Has anyone ever seen a game with amazing theme and asset integration from a big time license?

Spooky did it with R&M it looks like!

Yeah solely from the custom callouts from the characters of the show. Very strong start.

But.........

STRANGER THINGS!!!!

IKR...I am trying so hard to keep my expectations low on Stern's Stranger Things.

#355 11 months ago

Stern Spiderman has excellent theme integration and some of the best call outs ever.

Hobbit is the only game I’ve seen that is really well done in that department. LOTR might be the best one before that.
So that’s why I’m totally fine with the JP approach and if they continued to advance their games in that direction.

Ghostbusters was pretty damn good as far as theme integration goes. I know a lot of people don't like that game but you can not say the theme integration was not there. The whole game was based on the movie and had call outs by Ernie Hudson. The sounds in the game are some of the best and the light show mimicking the ghost trap was top notch. At the end of the day I don't care if Stranger Things is not based on the show. Give me the world. I don't need the kids. Give me the locations (Starcourt Mall, Hawkins, School, Upside Down), give me the monsters and give me the original synth music. Come up with a new story like they did in JP. Ill be good with that. I'm ready for this pin!

#357 11 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Season 4 already confirmed and that may be the final one. Whatever they decide it will go as long as they want it to. Show is amazing. All three seasons.

Good to hear because the economics of Netflix continuing a show, even a popular one, are against most things going beyond 2 seasons.
(there's been some good articles about the unfortunate economics of it all...)

...and with GI.

But anyway, back to ST, tons of score music please. Like someone else said, I don't need a top 40 countdown in this game (even though I love '80s pop).

Mine are super low. I just don't see a game in this license. Great show, though.

#361 11 months ago

Pretty sure Stern is making a HARD push on the Star Wars home edition right before the holiday and don't want to cannibalize with a hot IP like ST... I've seen the Star Wars home pin pop up a TON on my social feed today! Wouldn't surprise me if we don't see this till early next week!

#362 11 months ago

I figured it's going to look kinda like this

If that's real I think it looks good

I don't know what that means, but I was referring to the actual Alien cab construction not the art.

#365 11 months ago

That would be the JJP cab.

Maybe it's his way of saying the game is going to be a bucket of shit?

Don't wanna get too presumptuous here but I think it's supposed to represent him jerking off, cause if that's all true this is shaping up to be a killer game.

#372 11 months ago

I like the sounds of everything so far.

#373 11 months ago

what is "another" interactive upside down ramp? Was there a first?

#374 11 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

going to say the same. Stern rarely uses drops now so good to see. 3 ramps on the pro is nice - I'm trying to convince myself pro is good enough! I mean - who needs 4 ramps! haha

and hand drawn art. Thank god.

#375 11 months ago
Quoted from Rondogg:

I'm guessing its a similar technique that they used in Ghost Busters vision ?

Three ramps also lends to a third flipper. Yes!

Maybe there’s one in the pro, multiple in the Prem/LE

I have an extra flipper on the hobbit you can have

#380 11 months ago

Cant wait! I'm guessing the ramp would be a flap that opens up and the hologram will project the gate to the upside down.

Too late. I’ve been freaking out about this since Saturday. Seriously going to be the least productive person on earth until the reveal.

#385 11 months ago

It's been a minute since the last Zombie Yeti game.

Yeah being in a billable hours industry is not helping me right now. Good thing I have PTO that I need to use before 12/31. Forget about anything getting done on the full reveal day. I'm looking at doing TPF show special for a Premium. My guess is that TPF will be flooded with the premiums like it was with Munsters last TPF.

You will see him on Turtles which is rumored to be after Stranger Things.

#388 11 months ago

holographic images on the play field (if true) actually pisses me off, because it means I HAVE to get a premium. To me that sounds beyond epic.

#389 11 months ago

Damnit I’m out! I wanted 5 flippers.

Lots of drops? Maybe theres 11 drops in the game and when hit in a specific order it starts an Eleven multiball mode with 11 balls. Lol. List looks good so far.

Now we just need Stern to nail the license. Hopefully they have licensed actor audio, video, and some licensed music across all 3 seasons.

I have already said my want list multiple times on this forum on not caring about getting all the licensed stuff but now thinking of it, I would love if all the call outs were done by a drunk Jim Hopper.

Disagree. Tons of annoying sound FX that have nothing to do with GB, yet totally lacking iconic sounds like the streams & Slimer’s screams & growls. Not enough movie quotes peppered about. Ernie, while legit, is kinda bland sounding as a custom callout - if you didn’t know it was Ernie, it just sounds like a generic guy. The DMD never shows the character’s faces. Only their backs & hands. Clearly they didn’t want to go through approvals on the Dot animation.
