I asked Steve Ritchie this question at last years TPF.. you're welcome.

Quoted from BradKreisler:

Does anyone else feel that the BK turned into the Mountain? What’s up with all the muscles. Muscle armor? BK Swords of Roid Rage. Just looks off to me.

Have you heard his voice? “ I am the black knight..”

He doesn’t exactly sound like Steve Buscemi..

#1304 6 months ago

Metalhead here.. I need to get some likely completely uninteresting and probably irrelevant stuff off my chest.. I keep hearing people say stuff like.. "I heard this awesome guitar and I was like yeah of course Scott Ian.. yeah! \m/.."

OK, yes, Scott Ian is a legend, Anthrax, stormtroopers of death.. He's an awesome songwriter, riffmaster, harmonic melody, etc. BUT, he is not known as being a guitar shredder/soloist. That's why the band had Dan Spitz in the early years, through Paul Crook, then Rob Caggiano, and finally Jon Donais (of Shadows Fall fame \m/).. ANYWAY

That's where Brendon Small comes in.. Brendan is first a comedian.. but I came to know and love his work through Metalocalypse.. a cartoon network show about a metal band called "Dethklok" where Brendan writes all the songs, plays guitar/bass, and sings.. it's awesome stuff, and his live shows as a "virtual band" are freaking amazing and hilarious. When you hear a shredding guitar solo on black knight, that's him! He's an unbelievable lead guitarist. (as many of you know he also did the voice of the sparky and the snake on metallica, and the narrator of aerosmith which was very similar to his "facebones" character on metalocalypse..)

Just go on you tube and watch videos for scott ian, then brendon small.

Anyway.. TL;DR. Scott Ian plays Rhythm, Brendon Small Plays Lead together they make the music for black knight sword of rage..

The better way anyway... why play the lottery when you can wait, and maybe for a little more pick a known winner.

wait?.. WAIT?...

Well at least we made it 1356 posts before the pinstadium comments came around... #deadhorse

Quoted from jwilson:

Attention all Mace Complainers:
You, the player, weild the Sword of Rage. Not the Black Knight.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled nonsense.

so then, what is the knight holding in all the artwork (cabinet, backglass, etc..) The sword of tranquility?

#1764 6 months ago

I took off from work early, picked up the kids from school, cooked dinner for the family, cleaned up the dishes, did bathtime.. all so I could watch this stream.. they better actually stream some black knight FOR REAL!

#1770 6 months ago

I know I should have known better.. but the twitter video seemed pretty sincere.. Not gonna lie, I'm freaking pissed.. considering cancelling my LE order.. #butthurt

#1772 6 months ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

One more for me!!!

you want two LE's?

#1787 6 months ago

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.

#1792 6 months ago
Quoted from estrader:

Damn where you find this for 8500?
I understand your frustration but it’s not like they took out mechs/features in the game and are charging the same.

I've bought nearly every Stern LE since Star Trek, every CGC LE. The guy they have partnered with (Jack Danger) to show first looks at live gameplay, and Stern pull a crappy stunt to dangle it in the faces of their customers. Thread drained, order cancelled, I'll be waiting to see what JJP does..

#1803 6 months ago

April fools!.. I'm not passing up on Steve Ritchie.. Black Knight, and Metal! \m/.. Disappointed more of you didn't take the bait though.. If this game ships with incomplete code though.. you better know I'll be bitching about this goof off session prior to launch!

#1807 6 months ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Now admit..did you really get the BKSOR LE for $8500?

doesn't everybody?

#1835 6 months ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

I like the side art for the Premium, but I like the backglass art for the LE more. Wish I could just order the LE as a translite for the Premium....

I feel like this is always the case for me, like Iron Maiden.. I love LE backglass, and the pro cabinet..

#1884 6 months ago

Would be better if it was PETG vs Lexan, but if it’s thick enough it probably won’t matter.

#1966 6 months ago
Quoted from rcbrown316:

Does anyone have this game yet? I read about 40 comments and still have no indication if its shipping. I might get an LE if people are happy with it after receiving it. It does look pretty awesome.

That’s not how buying an LE NIB works..

#1968 6 months ago
Quoted from estrader:

This coming from the April fools guy!!!

Just saying.. I usually have to lock in sight unseen, before having an opportunity to play one.. maybe BKSOR will be different..

#2161 6 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

WOZ was announced in 2011, ACDC 2012. ACDC did ship first and the game contains 16 "tri color" inserts (same as RGB?). WOZ shipped with 100% RGB GI and insert lighting. That's a first and I don't believe Stern has offered a game yet with 100% RGB GI and inserts? Still regret selling my ACDC premium some days, great game.

Not fact but I think Star Trek (Premium/LE) would be the closest. RGB inserts, not GI.

#2393 6 months ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I'm not shy about being critical of LCD graphics, but I honestly don't know what people expect either. Like, there's amateur hour that's not acceptable stuff out there, and that's one thing, and I could nitpick some boring font stuff that no one wants to hear, but look at this freaking Hell Hand. It wiggles around in a lifelike manner, flexing and flailing and grinning, it glows and throws shit at the screen, and generally looks creepy and evil. Is this really not up to our standards?
Like, be critical, I encourage it, but it feels like people just want to shit on things no matter what now. If this is something that makes you grumpy then maybe you're just looking for reasons to be grumpy.
I dunno, when I see something that looks like a Dungeons and Dragons beholder fucked the screaming Santa Cruz skateboard hand I'm into it. Maybe that's just me.

That’s what the hamburger helper hand looks like under the glove.. that’s even scarier to me.

Had a chance to play a friends pro yesterday, we played for about 30 minutes before I remembered that the premium/LE version has an upper playfield. I say this only to point out, the pro definitely stands on it's own. Haven't played a premium to tell you if upper playfield is better or not, in the stream it looked a little lackluster, but Steve Ritchie said more code integration up there is coming. Physically like others have said I think the lack of a rubber or something to nudge off of (flash gordon style, etc.) at the bottom of the upper playfield was a miss, but will reserve final judgement until I play it.

The game is hard, but not frustratingly hard.. It's just enough to pull really hard for just "one more game" to try and defeat the black knight.. The modes are really cool, and you can definitely stack modes and multi-ball as the "start/mode and lock" are both at the shield. There is an add a ball at the left lane/VUK shot, but I dont know how to qualify it. The animations look amazing, and I love the music especially for the modes. The callouts for the black knight are entertaining, I thought the skeleton callouts w/ Ed Robertson were a little out of place.. but it could also be there were mixed/mastered very differently. As others have said the music without a mode running is a little bit repetitive, but I'm sure that will change w/ code.

Haven't fully figured out the sword/powers stuff yet, I'm sure there is a way to maximize that stuff for "big points". In the hour and a half that we played it 50-60M was our top scores, still no GC's.

TLDR: I still want one, but will likely get the pro.

Once you power up the sword using the drops on the right side, how do you use it?
