Quoted from jorant:

There are four iterations of the turtles and their voices (two cartoons and the two movies). Sadly this is stern's, thus a fifth. So like it or not, this is now how they sound.

Uh, there's actually 4 Cartoon Series and 6 Movies, all different actors, in the TMNT 2012 they even changed some inbetween seasons, so I don't give the slightest shit.

#1552 43 days ago

So. Only one question.

What is the "Premise/ Story"?

Is there a red thread or do you just battle multiple enemys?

#1553 43 days ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

You are correct that both wireforms give you weapon and I can see there is no advantage to collecting it on either side now. This reinforces the functionality of the pro model and idea that you aren’t missing much. I am not going to lie and say that was smart, in fact, it is probably a design flaw. If the inlanes offered different options, the diverter could have been used in a strategic way. As implemented, the functionality is wasted.
[quoted image]

No telling yet how the weapons work but I imagine you can have one or two sides lit at a time and divert the ball where it needs to be to collect. Seems like the kind of thing that could switch from left to right from sling hits or something.

I dont even need them to sound the same as the 80s voice actors. They just sound weird. Like a regional accent or something. Not what I expect of four teenagers in New York during the 80s

We haven’t heard any callouts yet, just the song. The “we’re really hip” and “get a grip” are just part of the song.

Quoted from jorant:

Wow holy hell. Thank you, I didn't know that.

Actually there's even more but I don't count the "real actors in costumes" show where they even meet the Power Rangers and the "Chibi" Version.

Oh and there was an Anime Spinoff... XD

No idea, but in the show it was always Shredder & Krang (or other villains) have an evil plan, Turtles fight them & stop it. Pretty simple, totally works for pinball narrative. Good vs. Evil

Hoping the "start episode" means lots of actual clips from the show. The nerdier side of me is kind of hoping for a fourth wall thing where the Turtles need your help to stop Shedders plan to erase them. Collect the episodes he has stolen by playing through them or something. We will.see what's up soon. I already told my son I'm busy this evening lol

Probably won't see actual show clips since they didn't hire the original actors and their voices are part of those clips, unless they are silent and new voice work is placed over them.

Do we know they didnt hire the voice actors or is that just based off of the theme song?

Yes, but I not so confident they do something like that.

Edit: It seems I stand corrected, wich I'm happy about!

Don't let the door hit you in the shell.

#1569 43 days ago

i love this level up mechanic. Its like star wars code with a whole other added dimension to it. Playfield really looks packed...love the layout

But srsly, why? ZY made some sweet pics, just use one of those.
This April "model" is really beyond good & evil.

#1573 43 days ago

20 mins into live stream and I’m AMPED for a Premium, Game looks way fun!

#1574 43 days ago

Watching now. Some of these voices are absolutely terrible.... Turtles in particular like leo. Some are fine (krang splinter). Jury out on shredder..... Although thats a good thing. I think he's going to be fine. April borderline. Leo saying turkey for example awful.

Art for some of the villains on lcd like slash are very bad and don't match the art by zombie...wtf?

Code looks loaded which is great. Layout and flow looks great too.

I agree! was on fence hoping, really liking what Im seeing so far.

#1576 43 days ago

Didn't have a strong opinion either way before the stream, but I gotta say, this thing looks fun as heck to shoot.

Certainly exceeded my expectations (only because the theme wasn't for me). Looks great!

#1579 43 days ago

Just like JP, these custom animations destroy 25-year-old clips, and just like JP, people will cry for months about "assets."

#1580 43 days ago

Whoa most state of the art top notch next level whole new game graphics ever!

Instant buy!

out (resized).jpg

But srsly: Game looks (and sounds) great in nearly every regard... but this. uh... rare piece is not one of em.

And I'm not shiiting on them for the fun of it, I'd like them to redo this piece, since I'm actually very interrested but I can't unsee this.

#1581 43 days ago

improved code can replace animations over time. itll get better. but this early the whole thing looks great. I have a tough decision between this, JP and Wonka. I think this may be it.....

#1582 43 days ago

This thing shoots so well right out of the gate that it makes Clunky Things even more of a confounding failure in hindsight.

#1583 43 days ago
Quoted from KYLEDM5:

I've been out of the loop. Would you be kind enough to give full details?

It wasn’t even about TMNT. There is bad blood between jack danger and zach meny. I think it stems back to the whole introduction and immediate implosion of the Pinball network when Jack was the first to call them out for being a middle aged white boy group. There were thinly veiled comments made by several involved on podcasts on Facebook, etc.

Today jack sort of instigated on the flip n out Pinball Facebook page when zach announced taking orders for TMNT and got zach all fired up and then his wife came on to defend him. There were over 70 comments - mostly just jabs back and forth between jack and Zach and Zach’s wife before all of the comments vanished. Obviously there is bad blood and a big failure to communicate.

#1584 43 days ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

It can. If it will we don't know.

Loving BKSoR animation but there also is one animation loop error wich never got fixed.
(But nothing to a degree I'd be as hard as I'm, now.)

I want to play BKSOR so bad but no where around here has it. I thought about buying a pro blindly(i dont like upper playfields), but couldnt bring myself to it. My wife says I get 1 more for now so I need to be picky!

I like getting a Pin early and seeing the code evolve. It was fun to have deadpool from the beginning and most thought it was a dud. Now its mostly loved on here it seems.

#1586 43 days ago

Pizza button mash mode? I take it all back.

#1587 43 days ago

I really don't get this bash the button thing, its not a mode, it comes across as so lazy. Also the LCD graphics and animation are super poor quality for this day and age but I guess acceptable for Stern.

I get that but I wouldn't allow me to buy one until I'm absolutely sure... wich of yourse is a money thing as well.

I love BKSoR in every regard, but people are of course correct when they say it's kinda empfy.
TMNT has A LOT of "geometry", looks really fun to shoot and I love the music.
But since I love TMNT I can't stand what they did to April. That's no ill will.
If they change it, I'm propably in sooner or later.

I have deadpool Prem and SW comic Premium. I kind of thought BKSOR was similar to SW layout(ritchie fast fan layout). Brutal and fast. So that was in the back of my mind as well. Still need to find one locally to get time on.

Personally I like a clear objective in a game and this game is as obvious as it can get.
You work your way up to the Black Knight AND it really feels you fight him. (And all the rest works for me also.)

deadpool is like that as well progressing through the enemies. Star Wars is madness with combining missions(but you can turn that off).

#1592 43 days ago

I’m not a big fan of the theme, but game looks like it will be fun to shoot.

I am very disappointed with the mono targets though. I think it’s a pretty silly cost cutting move and it will be very hard for me to consider a NIB game in the future where there should be drops or individual targets. I’d rather have no targets than mono targets. I’d make an exception for Munsters if I decide to get one but other than that - mono targets = location only for me.

#1593 43 days ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

Well,... no. (At least compared to BKSoR with the main enemy in the center, as the only big toy you fight constantly. )

#1594 43 days ago

Yeah - Theme does absolutely nothing for me and that song would drive me insane...but it looks like a blast to play on location and it looks like shoots well right out of the gate.

#1595 43 days ago

Loving the throwback early '90s new jack swing/funk soundtrack. What I wouldn't give to play this all night in a shitty pizza parlor with greasy checkered tablecloths.

#1596 43 days ago

I think the majority of the animations look petty damn awesome. The battle modes and skill shot stuff with the turtles landing attacks looks really great I thought. Maybe in hindsight or in freeze frames there will be weaknesses. That April mode looks weak, but it supposed to be a news report on a crappy TV - I think her stuff looks better in other areas...

#1597 43 days ago

In '87 I was more interested in beer and girls than cartoon turtles so not excited by the theme but looks like a really fun game. Zombie Yeti artwork is always amazing and the layout looks great. The LCD work is also fantastic imo, feels like Stern is really hitting its stride with the screen stuff.

I'm sure there will be a lot of happy TMNT fans out there with this one.

#1598 43 days ago

Overall impression after that first stream? Stern knocked it out of the park. I could take or leave TMNT as a theme, didn't think I was going to want one, but wow. Total package.

#1599 43 days ago
Quoted from jeffgoldstein2:

Game is lacking innovation in the toy department. Ramp diverter via shadow. Magnet spinner pulled right from xmen. And a physical ball lock in a van.
Game just looks cookie cutter at first glance.

How many games have you designed?

#1600 43 days ago

Looks like this is going to be great.

Nice job Stern team!!
