Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

Just shredded the pro at Sunshine Laundromat... it shoots like a champion. Not the brick monster people claim it to be, it’s way easier than say AC/DC for example.
It’s defintely a bit shockingly baron when you first step up, but the code and music and art and layout make you forget about that pretty quickly. The orbits F’ing rule and the Knight toy is pretty dang cool.
Ramp is super satisfying to hit, this is a lower playfield leaning game for sure and much like GOT I think a lot of people are gonna dig the pro version. Another hit in the books for Stern, I’ll take fun over toys any day of the week.

I fuckin told ya!

If I knew you were coming tonight I would have dropped by!

Do you like to drink wine in the bathtub? Do you cut the eyes out of pictures of your ex? Do you like to cut yourself while watching Twilight?
That kind of music.

I agree. I almost went blind watching the last Superbowl halftime performance. Back to Black Knight, I imagine that the amazing mod makers in our community are going to have some cool stuff to fix up that barren Pro model. I'm counting on them.

Quoted from Fytr:

I'm just going to leave this here for KISS...

OMG... you know there are like a million different kinds of charts but the only one that matters is sales. The highest sales charting song of Kiss all time is Beth, which reached #6, it was also the ONLY top 10 hit they ever had. Furthermore they have no #1 hits, and oddly enough their biggest selling album was the album that featured Beth, and they kicked him out of the band.

Most of their albums sold between 500,000 units to 1 million units. They have no #1 hit, however they do have an anthem song unlike Iron Maiden (Rock N Roll All Night) which is their most well known song, only hit like 45 in the charts.

Iron Maiden never had a #1 or even a top 10 hit, and maybe one of those songs reached like 37 or something.

Neither band is known for their music as much as their stage shows. There are without a doubt the two single most successful bands who never really had any authentic hit songs.

Nothing changes the fact that both of these bands COMBINED have less views on their music than ONE Metallica song. How is it if they're so popular does Metallica or ACDC have more views on ONE song than two bands between them made over 50 albums have combined? OVER 50 ALBUMS between them and between all those songs combined they cant match one song from Nirvana. Again they're really popular like the Grateful Dead with their fans but they don't have fans outside that window.

Kiss is bigger in the US and Iron Maiden is bigger in Europe.

There is one Skynyrd song "simple man' that someone uploaded that has almost as many views as all the Kiss songs combined. Why because Skynyrd is one of the most talented musical groups ever assembled.

Kiss and Iron Maiden have pinball games because that's what they do that is how they make money, licensing their brand to almost anything. While real bands like LZ, Doors, Nirvana or Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queen, sell music.

There is a difference but you know none of this has anything to do with Sterns new game. Start a music theme and we'll debate all day long would be fun!

#2955 5 months ago

Why are the threads about new games always filled with the lowest of the low moments on pinside? Sad. If I actually cared to read 90% of the posts in this thread, I'm sure at least one or two new people would be in my ignore basket.

Pinball people should stick to pinball. Oh by the way Kiss has a second top 10 hit in 1990 peaking at #8 I believe on the Billboard 100 that song Forever. Also Kiss has the most gold albums of any American band with 26 which includes the 4 solo albums released under the Kiss umbrella. Gold is an indication of sales level of course. Aerosmith is second on the list with 25. For most Kiss fans music is the connection with the band and they proved that during the non makeup years when the stage show was on par with most of the bands of the era.

Clearly this guy is either a troll or the least liked person on pinside (that's saying a lot).
Let's just all agree to stop paying attention to this guy and his nonsensical novels. (Although his musical ignorance is comical in the way he defends it)

It amazes me how much time that some people spend who don’t want a particular pinball machine for whatever reason bitching and complaining I guess trying to convince others they shouldn’t wanted either . Life is to short for this waste
of time . LE ordered , it’s a hobby, buy what you like.

As pointed out already, KISS had 2 top ten hits, and 24 songs in the top 100. BETH was on the charts almost half a year itself.

What exactly are you basing your opinions on, video views? Number one hits? Album sales? You're all over the map. You're comparing how many times a video has been viewed as to which BAND is better? Do you decide which car is better by the color?

Do you actually play an instrument? Please take it from someone who does - Lynyrd Skynyrd is NOT one of the most talented musical groups ever assembled, sorry.

You know what music this pin is mostly based on? A no name band from Brendon Small called Dethklok. They rock, look them up.

Know what you are getting in your BK pin. If you don't like it, move on.

My husband watches it and then shows me all the scenes that make him think of me (my dark sense of humor). He had me watch the scene with the Shame Lady's revenge and the nun that tortured her. I burst out laughing when she whispers "shame shame" to her. No doubt, GoT is high quality murder-porn. I can only imagine what shenanigans they will show in the final season. If it is truly dark and twisted, chances are I will see it.

If it had actually been a Dethklok pin in full they might have gotten me. Brendon on custom voices and a mix of new tracks with some classics? Could have been a perfect combo of 'band pin' with original theme.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Thanks to the pinball browser and a sinister character I'm listening to the Music & Callouts of BKSoR on pinball browser.
Browsing trough the callouts I think and hope there's way more to come from the "beige" knight and lots of humor.
So there's:
"Superduperloopa Jackot" (lol)
"I can learn to be good/ let's have a brew and talk etc." (beige knight)
"It's just a flesh wound" (monty python)
doing funny voices aaaand...
Of course "Agaaaain!", "Play Better" and "Fight".
Awesome!
If they really put all this in (there's callouts relating to the story development as well) this is a must-buy for me.

During the Black Knight talk with Tim and Steve at MGC, Tim said there is much more coming for callouts. There is also more content coming that they haven't gotten yet and are waiting on. So much more to come! Cant wait.

Any have a guesstimate as to how much of the game is done? Some pins are released with more code than others.

It has been my experience that those who can't play/don't really know music think Skynyrd is the best band ever. Yikes! Both The Outlaws and Blackfoot were more talented--just to pick two contemporary southern rock bands off the top of my head...

Dodged out of work early today and put few games in and was impressed
on the Pro. I love the color palette for the playfield and artwork on translite.
The music is spot on and so right for this game. Hey its the Black Knight.
Love the back panel with the center "fire" effect. The overall lighting during
gameplay looks great.
It was kicking my rear pretty well as it's pretty intense hitting those orbits.
A challenge for sure.
Yes, the flat plastic figures in both corners of rear playfield do need some love
from the mod people out there. The animations were really put together well
for the display. Still trying to get use to LCD display in any new game since
I don't have any yet in my collection.
I initially had my sights on a Premium purchase but the Pro certainly was satisfying.
Will need to play a premium before deciding though. I'm looking forward in going to
battle again real soon!

Love the IMDN pinball machine, except the music. We don't care for Iron Maiden music at all, and it's the one thing that prevents us from buying one. Someday, I might buy one and change the soundtrack on it myself, ala cleland type mod, because the playfield and gameplay is that fun, it would be worth the time to do.

i don't know man. I cant stand metallica and swore i wouldn't buy one for that reason. I was wrong. game kicks so much ass I am ok with the music.

Quoted from drfrightner:

I have to say some people can’t respect other people’s opinion. I have nothing against those who think Iron Maiden is the greatest band who ever lived. I have nothing against those who pleaded make Iron Maiden game, or those who want a Judist Priest pinball either. Good for you that someone made Iron Maiden who didn’t deserve it based on success on the charts. Kiss is another band who created a massive fan base without actually having music that the mass majority of music lovers embraced. Good for them.
Kiss, Iron Maiden are two of the most unsuccessful charting bands in history that made the most money. I guess at the end of the day what matters is the bank account, so that makes them successful.
We can’t ever put Iron Maiden in the same league as Queen, Led Zepplin, Beatles, or even bands without pinball games like Def Leppard or even Poison for that matter who had #1 hits. I would bet anyone on this site $1000 if we polled 100 random people at a mall, mabye 2 in 100 could name even one Iron Maiden song.
If I polled the same people can you name 1 MJ song it would go to 90 out of 100. Musically Iron Maiden has their fans who love them live by them just like the fans of Grateful Dead, but like Iron Maiden Gratefull Dead the mass majority of music fans don’t know their songs.
These are facts not opinions. So I’m very very sorry that I’m very knowledgeable about music and am not a fan of Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden fans love Iron Maiden, and everyone else never heard of them. Even people who don’t like Bruce Springsteen still knows 5 or 6 of his songs... when people know your LOGO but don’t know your songs you’re not legendary music band. LOL
All that matters is Iron Maiden is a good pinball game, I had the game set up on a location and no one put quarters into it because of the THEME!!! ALmost everyone I talked to never heard of Iron Maiden. On the other hand AC/DC, Metallica same genre right ... loaded with quarters.
I sold the game for two reasons... 1) It didn’t make money. 2). I personally don’t like Iron Maiden.
Great pinball game YES, wish you could swap it out for music from say Nirvana.
I will NEVER SELL my AC/DC or Metallica.
Here is the point I rate games my way and the theme, and theming of the game have a lot to do with it. That is my opinion. Respect that.
I respect and fully understand many here love Iron Maiden its fine! Good for you!
But opinions and facts are two different things, facts Iron Maiden has a lot of fans and I’m not one of them. Fact most people in the US do not know Iron Maiden’s music hence the pinball game didn’t make money.
THEME IS IMPORTANT on location but has nothing to do with what you collect inside YOUR HOUSE. Figure out the difference YOUR HOUSE vS LOCATION!
Ghostbusters HUGE money maker, Iron Maiden is NOT!
Black Knight will not do good on location because of the THEME!
That is the point.
Lastly I’m saying the LE is not worth the money because the upper play field is an epic flop. My opinion!

Is your middle name kineda by any chance? take a vacation man....

Quoted from Hazoff:

Man sometimes, actually most of the time I wish this site was split into the 4 represented categories. Dealer. Operator. Collector and Player because it would save so much bullshit wasted time. As a player I don't give a crap regarding how anything is manufactured or sold, I don't give a crap regarding BOM or build quality all that shit, I don't give 2 shits about longevivty or side art etc. etc. and I don't mind taking a loss when I sell it, worth every penny. just give me the game so I can play till I'm bored and decide to move on. Imagine how many posts would become irrelevant in that case.

don't forget the 5th category for obnoxious dbags. that should clear it out pretty quick lol...

Review:
Black Knight is a serious let down of a game. Let me start with the LE/Premium anyone who overpays for this game and buys one of these is making a serious mistake. The upper playfield is the worst upper playfield I've ever seen EVER! There is no point to it... they could have done a castle look, maybe added like the mechs from Scared Stiff (Frogs) when you hit something like a monster pops up, something anything to shoot at. They could have taken torches and a castle look up there with some monsters, but nope. You just get to shoot at a very odd and very weird looking ball lock mech. This blows the theme of the game totally, and otherwise is just boring and out of place.
Paying even 50 cents more for a premium/le is a serious mistake. Secondly, I don't see this game earning on location, it will be another TNA, a game that just sits there making no money. People can complain about games like Ghostbusters but that game makes seriously money, but the mass majority of pinball players play casual and gravitate to a theme they know like Ghostbusters, ACDC, or even Dialed In because the game looks super neat.
Black Knight doesn't measure up.
The game itself is NOT as fun as the versions that came before it... yes the sound is better, graphics, and all that but strip all that away and it boils down to is the game better and the answer is NO!
While at the show many of the premiums where getting fixed and fixed a lot ... one person told me hey these are prototypes and they might need to make adjustments to the upper playfield.
Another knock on the game is the music sounds cool for about 30 seconds, but it never stops same thing over and over again. Maybe some code updates will add more songs or something. Who knows.
Now moving onto the only version you should consider... the PRO!
This game is very much like Houdini which lots of people complained about... you miss a shot its coming right back at you!
There is only one rail and no real ramps, there just isn't a whole lot going on in this game, and honestly I think you would get bored of it fast.
With all that being said the toy in the middle is cool, the music is hard thumping, the video graphics are cool very similar to Iron Maiden (must be the same person). Its not far off from say Aerosmith, you just get bored of it after a while but what makes the game better is you actually might like Aerosmith.
This game rests solely on the game itself because there is no ACDC music to fall back on.
As a game and nothing more, and projecting the long term value of it, I'd give this game a 6.8. I do think you'll see this game in heavy rotation at tournaments, but much like TNA, you'll play it for a little while then want to move it out soon after.
This is not Stern's best game for sure! I know a lot of people may disagree with me, but I think I'm right in 6 months you'll see everyone who buys it trying to sell the game for something different, while people who say POTC still won't be selling their game.
There just isn't a lot to fall in love with here, this game is cool on some levels, but its just not a long term keeper, and will never be considered a CLASSIC which is what it was trying to replace I would guess.
There is only one take away, before you get all bent out of shape at my point on review. Every time a new game comes out, its super cool right because its just that brand new. I think one main thing all pinball games share is you can get bored of a game after a while right? That is why so many games are bought, sold and traded. You want something new, something fresh, and that game is fresh for how long before you go uhhh not playing that one anymore time to trade it out.
This Black Knight game will be one of the games you grow old of faster than almost any other game you've ever bought. This game will get so old so fast, but thinking way way ahead, meaning after Jurassic World, after Elvira 3, after Guns N Roses, after Cactus Canyon. Right... that's when everyone starts to re-focus on the NEW game and what is new after that.
The first game you'll look to dump is Black Knight, so if everyone is dumping their black knight what will the resale value be?
Buy it today for 5700 and a year from now they're selling in the 4's for SURE!
LE you'll never move that thing EVER ... you paid 9500 which honestly will be giving donating your money, you'll be dropping down into the 6500 range to get rid of it. That is my prediction, so for me I'd stick with the PRO, which is the only game you'll see in tournaments I would imagine.
Even though I'm confused by the theme of Ocktoberfest, that game was way way way more fun to play. If I was going to choose between Black Knight and Octoberfest it would be Octoberfest all day long.
Again just my opinion.

do you print out your posts and go read them back to yourself in the mirror?

Damn. Pinside just stopped me from downvoting as it thinks I'm abusing the system. Learned something new about the forum. Thanks Frightner!

Just played the pro a bunch at AYCE Gogi, typing this while I wait for my fried Oreos. Awesome game, fast, fluid, brutal, exactly what I'm looking for. I disagree with people that say it's a one flipper game, I definitely use both. Hopefully will get mine next week, was my favorite game at their location.

The Fire! effect is very cool, and reminds me of the only good thing about the Fire! pin, the awesome fire effect on the playfield. Awesome to see that brought back, I love it. As good as any "toy."

Yep it does look very well integrated, but still cant work out what the AC/DC led animated flame tunnel does

I think this has a good chance of doing well on location. I get that it's an original theme -- but a theme with a big knight talking shit to you is a pretty compelling one. A real easy pin to understand what's going on too, you're fighting monsters. Combine this with awesome cabinet and back glass art and I think it it could do well. I know at least as a kid in an arcade this would be appealing -- hopefully it will appeal to us old guys playing pins in bars and bowling alleys too.
