    It will be good.
    Very good!

    #255 79 days ago

    Is this still a thing? I heard from a friend that his next game is no longer unlicensed. Superman 1978 / Steve Ritchie?

    #256 79 days ago
    Quoted from kermit24:

    Superman 1978 / Steve Ritchie?

    That would be great. Otisburgh, Still the best Superman and it always will be.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Can anybody corroborate that steve actually said this?
    I find it Unlikey it would be a direct sequel as stern doesn't own the rights to high speed or black knight.
    I could go for another rolleegames.

    Just have to rename it Dark Warrior 3k then, and Fast Speeding 3 LOL

    #258 79 days ago

    I thought that I read years ago that Game of Thrones was originally going to be a design for black knight 3000, but Steve liked the theme so much, that he used his design for bk3k on GoT. Furthermore I thought that it was mentioned that GoT was kinda his dream theme, his magnum opus.

    If anyone sees him at an expo I’d love to ask him about bk3k

    My favorite SR game as a total package is STLE. It’s stunning and fun to play. Although I’m not a big fan of the upper PF on GOT Prem/LE it’s a pretty cool game and I love the Pro.

    I’m really looking forward to his next game and hope to see it soon! Without counting up all the releases etc, it seems like he should be up soon in the rotation.

    #260 57 days ago

    Yeah I am really looking forward to see what he comes up with...I hope he is still working on this and hasn’t been redirected since nothing seems to be known about this lately. Usually info gets leaked a bit.

    #261 57 days ago

    I’m hoping that Zombie Yeti’s latest work is for the next Steve Ritchie masterpiece.

    If it was, he wouldn't be showing it off.

    Actually I’d live to see a Dirty Donny take on BK 3K.

    #264 49 days ago

    I’m guessing it could be a BK3, since this year marks the 30th anniversary of BK2000...

    #265 49 days ago

    I believe this is the next Stern game in late March/early April.

    #266 49 days ago

    If it’s BK3 I’m gonna have to sell some games.

    With a Black Knight bash toy

    Quoted from Quadrat:

    With a Black Knight bash toy

    No, a Beige Knight bash toy! This is one of BKs nemeses. He tries to make BK more nice, giving, humanitarian and healthy, but the BK just isn’t having it...

    #269 48 days ago

    They'd have to license BK from Scientific Games (who owns Williams). And since this in an unlicensed game......

    #270 48 days ago

    Black Knight isn’t trademarked and it seems a little too generic of a name to need a license for. I’m no lawyer, but as long as Stern doesn’t remake the originals they can probably slap a 3000 on there and be safe.

    #271 48 days ago

    Since Superman 78 is next i don't know when Black Knight is getting released. Guessing this summer

    Doubtful.

    #273 48 days ago

    Eh. Just a thought. One can dream.

    #274 48 days ago

    Steve's next game - Non licensed theme is ' Play Better '

    #275 48 days ago

    I'm really not so sure this would make a great pinball machine.

    Seriously? When will DC realize that DC superhero’s suck compared to Marvel superheroes. The comics are not as good, the cartoons are not as good, the movies are not as good, and I’m betting the pinballs also won’t be as good. Hahaha.

    Batman is the best thing DC has going, and his super power is that he’s just a rich guy with toys. On his own Batman is awesome; but compared to most Marvel characters, he doesn’t hold a chance.

    Oh the comics and cartoons are lacking so this will translate into a inferior game? Come on. and by that I also mean stop putting too much thought into comics and Marvel movies. Oh and Superman '78 kicks any of the other superman films ass.

    Frankly all this comic book super hero crap is so overexposed at this point I wish it would go away and never come back. I prefer my heros to be real and the plot lines are pointless and ridiculous. But apparently it’s just me.

    #279 48 days ago

    I like comic & super hero games if done right. Good variety.

    We need someone to do an Avengers Endgame with real sounds, voices, and clips. No cheapen out - give it the full treatment. It's too epic of a franchise to only have the Stern Avengers 1 version out there. JJP go for it.

    Comics if done right like Spiderman and I guess now with Batman66 can be a lot of fun. Just need to properly match things up.

    DC comics are solid, like Justice League. Problem is the movie end of DC stinks it up.

    #280 48 days ago

    The Black Knight should fight the Kings of Medievel Madness

    #281 48 days ago

    A Black Knight bash toy on BK3K would not make sense to me. Why would you bash the main character?
    3 playfields on BK3K would make sense to me. But it also made sense to me on Munsters and that didn't happen.

    Quoted from unigroove:

    I am not a fan of toys on the playfield that interact with the ball. They break and get beat up. Tasteful, off-playfield props and animated features are cool, though.
    A laser sword swinging Black Knight on a robotic horse would be awesome.

    Marvel blows chunks of donkey dung.

    If I want to read about whiny superheroes complaining about how they can't pay the rent or how the world is mean to them, I'll read Marvel.

    If I want to watch gods battle, I read DC.

    You bash the main character on several pins. It's rarely the bad guy you bash.

    Enjoy your emo super-heroes.

    Quoted from cletus14:

    I like it. I’d love him as a cybernetic knight atop a badass motorcycle, or a horse/motorcycle hybrid like the Centaur character. He’d wield a collapsible lightning sword and a shotgun like a medieval-ised/modern Terminator. But that’s just me.

    #288 47 days ago
    Quoted from unigroove:

    Hhm, makes sense to me, but I always play BK and BK2K as though I'm battling him: that's how I've instinctively seen it since a kid. Is this not the common viewpoint? I thought it was...

    Always thought this also. Fighting against the black knight.

    #290 47 days ago
    Quoted from HighVoltage:

    Is this not the common viewpoint? I thought it was...

    “You’ve got the power, you’ve got to might, get ready for battle.... beat the black knight!”

    Also, “Stand up and fight!!!”

    You are absolutely battling against the Black Knight.

    #291 47 days ago
    Quoted from unigroove:

    A Black Knight bash toy on BK3K would not make sense to me. Why would you bash the main character?

    You are correct, it doesn’t make sense. What about putting the main character on a spring or on a stick? Would that make sense?

    #292 46 days ago

    All this talk of BK3000 is killing me. I miss my BK2000

    30 year anniversary for BK2000, Congrats Steve Ritchie !

    One of the coolest pinball tracks

    He killed Superman.

    You got to give him credit for getting rid of that idiot.
