So many posts, not as much as a squirt of evidence.
Still puzzled no one took screenshots of the alleged "webinar" that occurred for disties today.
Can't agree more with these sentiments. AFM is the most approachable game there is for new players as it invites new players to simply shoot in the middle to make progress. My wife tolerates it too but I had to sell that clunker of a remake. I was eventually going to get a real one but I think Stranger Things will do me just fine with a cherry on top. I have a dark corner in my game room and I simply chose not to listen to the the doom mongers.
And trust me, there will be a cow!
I had I Hypeball prototype. It had the feedback forms stapled to it. That was easier back in the day without Internet. I still have a lot of respect for JJP when they trialled the rotating mode thing on JJPPOTC (FGW in SF had one). A similar scheme would apply to this projector idea that Stern has...
Besides the two ramps and the center shot behind the drops, what makes this game an "AFM" layout? If you'd see this game for the first time not knowing that Brian Eddy was behind it, would you still think of AFM?
I like to call it a pretzel fan layout as the shots are asymmetrical. Left orbit feeds right return and inner right loop feeds left orbit. Like a pretzel.
Anyhow, thanks for the review!
Quoted from TigerLaw:
Is there any chance of Stern getting the season 3 video assets in some future code release? The mall in season was such an incredible setting for 80’s nostalgia.
Don't forget how weird these games will look after Season 4+, new actors, grown up actors, new threats and we're not even in Hawkins anymore. The upside down will most likely be around still.
The alleged "secret skillshot", has anyone found it yet? My guess is soft-plunging into the left saucer.
My TNA dimpled just like my brand new GOTG and the AFMR I had. It's least visible on my TF that has the most plays (dimples has smoothed out) but remember when I got my Stern Trek that every fly ball made what looked like a crater. Barely notice these days.
My Tron (2nd or 3rd run) that sat in a box for 5 years has got a very good cure and is not as noticeable.
Quoted from Iwasthebruce:
The dimples seem waaaay to small a diameter to have been caused by the ball, but who knows.
Drop a ball on the PF and increase the height one inch for each drop. The dimple grows as the height increases. One inch looking like a speck of dust up to a groove you can feel with your finger. Do this under the apron close to the PF graphics, some clearcoaters are for obvious reasons not a detail oriented underneath the apron.
Seriously though, some modder should take the vag monster and simply make it 10% bigger and every problem would be solved. Bigger glory hole and the pudendas would cover up the crevices where the balls get stuck.
Quoted from kpg:
But compare the two playfields and it becomes abundantly clear- this may be the lowest budget pinball machine Stern has released in years besides games like Whoa Nellie and the Pabst Blue ribbon machines.
Times have certainly changed. When I'm eyeing up my Stern Trek Premium and looking at my Stranger Things LE on its way off the line it makes you wonder where things went south. If Stern needs to cut costs and charge us more to stay in business, I'd say so be it! Fuck the world it would be miserable without them. Besides TNA I can't be fucked with any of the other "new" manufacturers out there. Although I'm waiting for that JJP game to drop that raises the pulse just above stone cold dead (not interested in "family" titles).
Pardon my trolling but do we want start speculating about the next DLC after UV-gate?
Quoted from Crile1:
Give it a chance!
This game got off on the wrong foot for sure. I have ironed out all kinks on my game (there were quite a few) and I'd challenge any hater who played a dud on location or otherwise to say this is a shit game one more time. I bought sight unseen at launch and underwhelmed is an understatement.
