    Dimples is the next game playfield print covered in dimples

    #202 1 year ago

    I’m a huge SR fan, but Black Knight is not a personal preference for me. I was not a fan of the split playfield design or the theme. As much as I look forward to an unlicensed design from him, a third black knight doesn’t personally excite me. Few sequels best the originals.

    Fingers crossed it will me something to my liking. As always, I wish him and the design team all the best.

    Long live the King!!!

    I find Steve Ritchies games to be very boring. SW and GOT are the worst!

    Shut yo' mouth and bow your head in shame! If Steve Ritchie weren't here I doubt there would still be pinball. Definatly no pinball worth playing

    BK3000?

    F-35 Lightning

    "You're hacked, comrade! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA! "

    F35tandem-promo_0 (resized).jpg

    The USA military has been paralyzed after the president was tricked into giving all the access codes to Putin.

    You, Ramrod, and Hitman go rouge and take to the skies again with the still experimental F35 Lighting III Stealth Fighter Jets.

    Because the F35s are experimental, they are able to take flight without Putin's knowledge.

    As you gain experience with the F35, new features are found and unlocked.

    Mission Modes:

    Take out Russian air defense before you are detected

    Win back lost allies for ball save

    Battle monster catfish at Chernobyl

    Rescue Edward Snowden for counter-hack abilities

    Destroy Nerve-Gas factory

    Destroy Moscow Ritz Carlton

    Destroy Kremlin

    Wizard Mode:

    Battle bare chested Putin in final dog fight

    Could be a Midnight Mattress mode?

    #209 1 year ago

    Funny stuff, boys.

    I'd much rather have that than Black Knight 3000

    #210 1 year ago

    I loved BK back in the day, but a few things get old fast now days. No reason BK3000 can't be awesome. Its not like it will be exactly the same as the original.

    When I spoke with Steve last fall he was excited as hell about this game because he didn't have to deal with Disney or any other license holder.

    #211 1 year ago

    I would imagine that Black Knight would have to be licensed from WMS

    #212 1 year ago
    Quoted from vid1900:

    I was just going to ask if BK3000 would have to be licensed...I think so, unfortunately I don’t think it is BK3000.

    #213 1 year ago
    Quoted from vid1900:

    Just call it Dark Chevalier 3000

    That's a license too....

    Quoted from thedarkknight77:

    What I love about Steve is he is 100% testosterone!!! The only thing that will let me down is if he makes an original title that isn't a kick ass testosterone game. Now what do I mean by this??? I am talking Space, Gods, Knights, Monsters, Demons, Death, Hot Chicks, Fire, Blood, Black, Speed, Rock n Roll and most of all NO APOLOGIES!! That is my King! God damn stubborn bastard!! Love you Steve!! As the game designer and visionary, he needs to get his hands on a great artist to help him pull off this masterpiece......My vote is for Paul Faris, Dirty Donny or Zombie Yeti! These boys fit the profile and they have proven they are hard hitting artists that know how to make a statement with their art! I want this game to kick my ass like a sexy dominatrix and have me coming back for more! Build it Steve and The Heavens will rain Fire, Blood and money for Stern!!

    A Dirty Donny space Wizard-Unicorn-Gremlin-Black light and neon fever dream with Steve Ritchie ball bustin’ would be a fantastic!!!

    #217 1 year ago

    I would also love for Brian Holderman to do non-licensed artwork on a Space or Sea Creature or Horror themed pin in the near future. Ritchie could ask for it or any other designer for that matter.

    I know he’s designed t-shirts and other things in the Stern store in the past.

    RED Knight 3000, please! (Timeshock! players will understand).

    #219 1 year ago

    Any word on about when this game will be announced? Summer 2019?

    #220 1 year ago

    I owned Black Knight 2000 for 16 years. This would be a dream theme for me. Such iconic music. "You got the power, you got the might, get ready for battle, beat the Black Knight! HA HA HA HAAAAA!"
    A second level playfield would be a staple!

    #221 1 year ago

    How about a game called Dimples

    #222 1 year ago

    I'm looking forward to seeing BK3000. There's something so fun about a playable upper playfield.

    #223 1 year ago

    Stern would have to LICENSE the Black Knight IP from Scientific Games (who owns Williams). Steve has said this is an UN-LICENSED game.

    Not happening folks.

    #224 1 year ago
    Quoted from Sinestro:

    Not happening folks.

    Thank god.

    #225 1 year ago

    You could just make a futuristic knight themed game called “Kings Random” or something that alludes to it being BK3K without licensing it.

    #226 1 year ago

    I told myself it's f-35 and I'm pretty reliable

    You and 2 other ace fighters go rouge with the still experimental F35 Lighting III Stealth Fighter Jets.

    Think of the amazing Russian Metal soundtrack the game could have.

    Stern could probably license all the music for a few rubles.

    Quoted from iceman44:

    Well he's on the wrong end of that trade then
    Lyman's the real "King"
    As for a BK3000, it figures, nothing new or innovative

    If people love the innovative BK then buy the existing one

    We don’t need another rehashed theme

    I thought I read somewhere it was only a few months ago ?

    I am unable to locate, anyone able to help

    H2H can you guys get Steve Ritchie on ? or are you perhaps waiting until his new release ?

    Cheers,

    Special When Lit Podcast did a recent interview with Steve Ritchie definitely worth checking out. They went to Stern to do it because Steve has a difficult time hearing and needs to read lips a bit.

    Great,

    Thank you

    #244 1 year ago

    Awesome interview!

    According to this podcast, everyone at Stern is excited to be a part of the next Steve Ritchie title. I’m going to assume that means it’s a very popular theme. Working with the King of Pinball would be enough for me. There was a rock tune aside from AC/DC that he blurted out, but I doubt it was any kind of clue.

    Look fellas. Richie is designing The Beatles.

    Everything else is red herring smoke.

    #246 1 year ago

    I did ask him a few months ago on any info. He wouldn’t tell. Oh well seams I know nothing.

    #247 1 year ago

    BK6K (pro)
    BK9K (premium)
    BK12K (super LE)

    The pro version has the magnasave buttons but no magnets. When you press the buttons you hear ritchies voice: “Gary says— No Way!”

    The premiums and LEs have custom insulting call outs “YOU GAVE ME YOUR MONEY!” the LE includes extra guitar solos and a $15 topper

    The good thing about Black Knight 6000 is that we still have Brian Schmidt around to write the songs.

    He still has his keytar

    I would totally be up for a Most Blackest Knight 6000!
    I’ve never met a Steve Ritchie design playfield that I didn’t make me spend quarters.

    #250 1 year ago

    Enjoyed the SWL interview, well done guys.

    Was god to hear Steve relaxed and providing insight to his 40+ years in pinball design.

    I like the fact the Steve is a man of innovation and gave so many cool things to Pinball.
    Never knew he leaped into the future with flashers, faceted inserts and wild wireforms, cool !

    Adversary games are the best, I put a lot of coin into BK and F14 in the 80's Just loved them.

    Hope to hear the F14 story and some more stories about his SRP games one day.

    Can't wait for Steve's next game !
