So... are Black Knight 2000s and Black Knights going to spike in price now
Love that it’s his voice laughing. Guessing he’ll be doing all the call outs. Nothing bette than getting trash talked by Steve Ritchie while playing pinball.
Quoted from epthegeek:
Way to re-post a picture on the same page, guy.
2 posts only and they’re both identical. I think he’s still learning.
Edit: and now he’s frozen and the 2nd post gone.
I’ll never understand how the moderation on this forum works. One of pinballs great mysteries.
Love the idea of Sterns oldest, most experienced designer working with their youngest coder who brings new ideas and is hungry prove himself.
I’m thinking Premium on this after I play it (I know, revolutionary right?).
And I normally buy LE.
Only thing is that LE mirrored backglass looks awesome. Very true to the BK2000 nostalgia.
Quoted from Pindiddy:
Looks like a soft plunged ball will return to the gate and then ride the metal support onto the wire form that goes to the right flipper. Check out the overhead pic of the playfield.
Ah, yeh, I think youre right. That's actually quite cool - better than plopping down on to the PF.
The artist told him to lower the angle of the sword so it would fit on the backglass. Since his armour wouldn’t let him twist his hand he had to loosen his grip slightly which let the sword change angle slightly.
At what stage is Art Discussion and Disappointment on the Pinside New Game Hype Cycle? I feel we’re a little pre-mature this time. Shouldn’t we still be complaining about Coil Counts or something?
Looks a bit like IMDN ‘s screen format. Guess we’ll start seeing layout templates emerge as more and more Stern LCD games get released.
Quoted from knockerlover:
Hilarious.. I dropped around 8500 on a game sight unseen.. and Stern and Jack Danger thinks its funny to dangle it in my face.. my money is going elsewhere. I'm just one person so I'm sure they will laugh and not care.. that's fine, there are choices in pinball now.
Wow....just dropped in here to make a joke that I'm cancelling my LE order because of this "outrage" April Fools joke, then read knockerlover 's post that he is actually doing that!!! This place never ceases to impress me.
Quoted from bigd1979:
So far im not real impressed and think if i was to get one the pro wld be my choice . Luckily no model looks like one for me ... was really getting worried as to what i was gonna sell lol.
It's another solid Stern game.
Why does every game have to be THE BEST STERN EVER? Its always - "I've ordered therefore its the best" or "I haven't ordered therefore its not".
Quoted from bigd1979:
I said it was a solid all around pin a must have for folks that love bk theme. Its not a must have otherwise especially with so many new pins coming out this year and limited space. I hope it does well so they will do more original stuff.
I agree, not a must have. But with so many Sterns being churned out now going to be hard to differentiate one must have from another. Really going to come down to code over time I think.
Quoted from Who-Dey:
For the people who are maybe feeling letdown a little dont forget that you can still buy a lot of great new games. Munsters is amazimg and several other games that are available as well but Jurrasic World is rumored to be coming and Elvira 3 is definitely coming, so theres still good reason to be excited about pinball.
I don't think BK sucks but i thought it would be better thats for sure. I cant wait to play one. Sometimes they are much more fun once you actually get to play the game.
who-dey you should be running a support group for collectors....Pinaholics Anonymous.
"Hi, my names Mark, and im a Pinaholic. I just cant stop myself buying pins."
I think we’re about due for a “Black Knight: Swords of Rage. worse code ever” thread.
Quoted from vireland:
Pfft. Black Knight is a design masterpiece compared to the dust and tumbleweeds code of Munsters ESPECIALLY when you realize they had to create ALL their music and video content from scratch, where Munsters uses a ton of clips and music cues/themes from the show. Munsters is a bad pin as it currently sits. Why drag that into Black Knight's thread?
Just making a point at how ridiculous this forum can be, but I think your post pretty much proved that for me.
Quoted from mandelbloom:
Yea this just seems totally against anything they have ever done .. also will it always be extra or included in future builds . Interesting to say the least .
It's really strange for Stern. Good, but really strange. While they are at it, can they go back and re-visit every criticism for every game and produce add-ons for those as well?
