Trailer has be hyped not gonna lie

#308 7 months ago

Bet his shield blocks a shot too. And there will be some sort of cool ramp I heard

#560 7 months ago

Game looks great, my only concern is lack of a ball return to the left flipper but I am sure Ritchie has the flow in check

#1321 6 months ago

Yea I think with the current street price and 600 of them no likely to go up .. even Maiden LEs are going for $500 less now. It’s a loss for sure but it nice to get it NIB and be one of the first to play it so what’s what worth to you ? You will also probably have to fix a thing or two

#1446 6 months ago

Perhaps he just has a loose grip on the sword

#1467 6 months ago
Quoted from TommyNYC:

Quick question from an inexperienced NIB Stern Buyer.
Usually i wait to see reviews come in before i commit to a Pin.
If all goes good i would buy a premium of this game, i love the theme and would be perfect for my collection.
If i wait till the Premiums roll out and then buy will i run the risk of missing out?
is preorder the way to go with stuff like this?
i am only a few months deep in this hobby and this will be my 3rd NIB machine i think.

Unless you want an LE I would say wait and see it, you can see if they will refund you pre-order deposit.

#1529 6 months ago

We need gameplay video stat in order to stop this madness!!!

#1642 6 months ago

What other modern games only have a return to the right flipper ?

#1646 6 months ago

GB pro ?

Seems pretty standard , but I’m sure it will shoot well still

#1695 6 months ago

Hope that’s not April fools

#1743 6 months ago

We have a lot of LE's around here!! I am not sure I really buy this 50/50 split either I seem to have an easier time finding games and peoples homes than location though since moving to Raleigh a lot more places to play!

#1829 6 months ago

deadflip after that epic troll (not that we didn’t see it coming , but admittedly hoped we were wrong) you need to let us know when we can see this thing for real before MGC ??

#1845 6 months ago
Quoted from luvthatapex2:

you can't wait 10 days for MGC reveal?

I can .. but I’m happy to see it sooner

Plus I prefer when deadflip streams from the factory less noise than a show get some good insight from designers .

#1922 6 months ago

Try Game Exchange Colorado they had some .

#2079 6 months ago

I am thinking "Ive got a golden ticket" and "Umpa Lumpa Dupity De" music is really gonna kill the crappy metal of Black Night!

Quoted from rcbrown316:

Fuggin yay. Thanks for your "insight"


#2711 6 months ago
Quoted from gliebig:

Hard to tell in the pics, but is there anything of interest going on behind the Knight besides some pops and three rollovers? Looks like more could've been done there.

The upper PF

#2738 6 months ago
Quoted from gliebig:

Not on the pro.

Exactly my point why it’s empty

#2776 6 months ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

There are quite a few videos posted on here...


#2815 6 months ago

I don’t think they are adding any mechs ... code yes .

#3099 6 months ago

I feel like they will add more, this is Tim's first game so I am sure its a bit of a learning curve. But guess we shall see.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

A little late but whatever!
Babysitting this for a few weeks before NYCPC.
It will not fit in the door. Better unbox it.

Ummm think you are trucking from wrong side

#3396 5 months ago
Quoted from newtoit:

Does you distributor tell you an exact date or just eta?

Usually an ETA then the shipping company will call you to bring it to the house, difference if ordering local I am sure.

#3427 5 months ago
Quoted from DylanFan71:

My LE arrived today. Sitting in the garage waiting for me to get home around 9. Not sure it’ll get setup tonight or tomorrow.

Tonight, video and photos haha

#3439 5 months ago

I think the game is the collectible ? If you really read it .. it is signed and collectible
. Marketing .

#3441 5 months ago
Quoted from DylanFan71:

Only got to put a couple games on. Played perfect out of the
box.[quoted image]

How do you like upper playfield ?

#3474 5 months ago
Quoted from PiperPinball:

#77 here![quoted image]

Cool I have 78 coming. Sadly it’s been taking a long trip I think someone forgot to take it off the truck the first time

#3480 5 months ago

I wish they put a Diverter in some only some shots went up . That said when in a mode that requires shots to the lower you can just let it go .

#3592 4 months ago

When in modes I will sometimes just not flip the upper if I am trying to complete them save time . Flows fine and catapult lock feels good !

#3604 4 months ago

So I have had it for just over a week now, didn't get to play as much as I would like but...quick review.

-Still in honeymoon phase but this is one of my favorite pins right now.
-Upper play field is fun and I think setting aside any cost difference is more fun. Played pro too which is loads of fun as well but this just adds that little extra t put it over the top IMO.
-I would like to see it used a little more..its close but would be nice if a mode or two required you to nail the loop a few times or something. May be hard to implement with no indicator light up there which IMO is the biggest design flaw. This would make it perfect!
-Sound is great, love the callouts and they keep getting better and the music rocks not repetitive.
-Art is great, backglass is one of the best I have seen tons of mirroring!
-Has a great "one more game" feel

I think a little more work on the code and we will have a winner!

Quoted from vireland:

Even a Herman munster-like coil jab to make the figure recoil a bit would have helped the effect.

Steve Ritchie mentioned this wad the original intent but getting the mech in their with the other two was a engineering challenge. Would have really made it over the top! Oh well

#3706 4 months ago

I am a big fan of the upper playfield. I was unsure, but I think its really fun!

#3772 4 months ago

I feel like the just used poor wording I doubt they are adding something physical.

#3773 4 months ago

Well reading it again are sounds like it is .

#3775 4 months ago
Quoted from newtoit:

What part of "physical enhancement that will extend upper playfield experience" doesnt sound like something actually physical.
I imagine itll be a lamp matrix feature like the funhouse mirror telling you which shot is ready to collect.

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 .

#3807 4 months ago

Only one I don’t understand how to get to us super catapult is that part of last chance ? I stopped watching stream so I can have some surprises

#3827 4 months ago
Quoted from newtoit:

Is super catapult multiball only available thru last chance?... i hope not, that would be ridiculous

Apparently I started it was fun!

#3848 4 months ago

Yes I am an owner, but I really like the Premium/LE. I was actually concerned I shouldn't have gone that route but I enjoy it very much. Pro is good fun, I love this game. Its like a throwback but modern at the same time. To each their own, but I am surprised it gets so much criticism.

#3901 3 months ago
Quoted from Crile1:

. Curious if code will be deep enough to be a long term game. Remember having a great time with Aerosmith on location, but it got old quick at home. [quoted image]

I think it will especially if he can do a little more with the power features.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Did anyone else adjust the shaker motor? It rattles my backglass like crazy, or something else in the back box

I did .. made it so one weight is at a 90 degree angle to the other .. perfect IMO .

#3959 3 months ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

Oh yeah because those pops below the upper playfield are so important /s

War lanes are! Also helps to see the ball coming around.

#3968 87 days ago

I could see maybe making easy between easy and regular .. and adding a “super easy or novice “ that’s like the current easy. Regular was a bear to spell knight or get to BK castle .
