Well, I think the main issue is that the artist in question has a specific style that he is bringing to the work, instead of bending his style to match the stated aesthetic. His personal style is more cartoony and "fantasy" versus the straight lines and "sci-fi" nature of Neon Noir, and that is throwing it off for people. I get it.

But, this is Scott's game and it's going to look how Scott wants, so ultimately everyone is just puffing hot air to no end. If you don't like it, don't buy it. I don't think they'll have much trouble selling the first run.

War Games is a great childhood movie.

Quoted from trunchbull:

I mean, it's the first backglass in over a decade that looks at all with-it.

I'm too old to know what "it" is anymore, but I'd think the PBR game is somehow with it?

Sorta, but that mostly scans as a playable advertisement.

Spooky podcast hinted that TnA would be coming sooner rather than later... Original estimate was maybe later this year?

#1369 2 years ago

So now it will be "sooner this year"?

I heard this too and quickly fired off an email to Charlie asking if they had a guess to reveal and say price. He replied that he didn't know as of yet that still a lot of work to do. So while that comment is great I wouldn't be looking for a reveal real soon.

#1372 2 years ago

Anyone interested in this title should should email spooky (or a distributor) soon and get on the list.

I loudly second the motion of "email soon and get on the list". As an early adoptor with crossed fingers & now an early member of the full-on Spooky loyal buyers club, I have #42 of AMH, and the rarer "1st 50" #42 RZ. KT on speed dial - Spooky my standing 95% certainty order

Both TnA and Alice Coopers are forcing me to postpone Star Wars (and pre Spooky JJP I would have bought all 3 Stern releases LE models the last 3 years). Only stearn I added lately was Aerosmith. Selling GoT, avoided BG, May sell STLE and Spiderman original, just to have room for Alice Copper and Dialed In. If I sell 3, Id strongly consider TnA. I was never in on the flyers risks of Jpop or Pred or Big L or Alien. The only 4th maker I might consider is HomePin.

And P.S As Charlie says, when the time comes that the game is revealed, only put down your deposit if you seriously commit to taking delivery (unless you have a big change in your life that cancels your pinball funds - you've got a solid handshake there).

Sorry for semi-hijacking the OP topic. But its kind of on topic - what might keep you in/out of making deposit $ down on TnA production?

#1374 2 years ago

I'm patiently awaiting the reveal and currently am on the list. I think they wil easily sell a couple hundred of these but just hope they don't shut off sales too early on it. I purchased RZ 295 direct from them and will need a little buffer time to stack cash for another purchase. I certainly don't want to be in initial batch of TNA but do want a shot at it.

#1375 2 years ago

What's the urgency to be in the list now? I mean it's not even revealed or the price.

#1376 2 years ago
Quoted from rai:

And it's an unlimited run.

#1377 2 years ago
Quoted from rai:

My guess is that they are hitting some sort of break off point (first 50, first 100, first 200) and they are hinting that if you want to get in the first run that it would be a good idea to show your interest.

I would ask, what is the harm to getting on the interested list now? No money down, no harm commitment till full reveal and price as I understand it?

#1378 2 years ago
Quoted from rai:

That you get a better position to get a game earlier. That's all. Yes, they will do runs to fill demand - there is no time or unit limit as there was for RZ. Charlie has not given a final production run # of Nightmare, and TnA was stated in a podcast (I think, or maybe it was MGC) - that they'd do batches of 50-100 as demand indicates.

So yeah, no urgency from un-obtainium angle, but First on, First out the door.

#1379 2 years ago

Certainly no harm in getting on the list. Just a tool to gauge interest. I'm sure the numbers they get on that list will influence how they manage the production line in what will take priority (TNA or Alice). Or atleast how to fit the batches of TNA in with Alice.

Either way I'm excited. Seems like a super fun game. I missed it at Expo last year but I will be hopefully attending this year and will hopefully get to play the production version.

If I in fact like it this might be the game to replace my Fish Tales. So instead of growing my collection I'll remain at 2 but both will be awesome games!

#1380 2 years ago

So many good choices indeed. I've made the decision to enlist my neices and nephews in helping solve the space issue. I've been putting games I'm not playing so much, but want to keep, to agree to "store" them with free play as much as they want.

Best of both worlds, I free space for Spooky games but keep my existing fine-tuned, modded, hard-to-find again under $10k. Collection is 20, lend out 5, I can buy SW, Spooky TnA and Alice, and maybe JJP dialed in (have woz and hobbit LE).

I only have cash for 1 game now, but I'm moving and have to leave 2 machines and free up 2 spaces .

All good "problems" that only the 00.10 % of the world could even ponder.

What is the benefit of one or the other to buy from?

#1382 2 years ago
Quoted from rai:

What is the benefit of one or the other to buy from?

Location, sales tax, which guy would you like more for service, who do you connect with more?

Joe gives some sales to hospitals, Joe sometimes has $sales of couple hundred bucks off.
Chris gives discounts for military.

KT's better looking that Joe or Chris.

#1383 2 years ago
Quoted from rai:

I made a purchase through pinball life my long ago that included a business card from Kingpin Games and he offers double the factory warranty and free shipping to military. Spooky will do the same on the shipping as they hooked me up. But double the warranty is nice.

#1384 2 years ago
Quoted from dgarrett:

Chris gives discounts for military.

Chris is also a BIG supporter of all the regional midwest shows and gives back bigtime to charity. He is a huge supporter of location pinball and also the MRP charity event each year.

Joe is a great dude, just did not want it to be left out that Chris is way more than just the military discount. His service is amazing also!

Glad to see the cards are getting some attention.

As it has been stated, ordering from whomever is a personal preference. No matter whom you order from, the end product will be the same. Same great game, same great service (as i am the tech support guy for Spooky). In the end it is just a personal preference.

I can not speak for Spooky, but both pinballstar and myself also welcome trade in towards games too.

Clearly you've never seen Chris is a size small ladies tank top.

As you can tell, with our business model we don't have a ton of distributors. Joe and Chris are because they REALLY care, bust their a**es, and are just damn great guys for pinball in general. Both are a huge part of why Spooky is chugging along just fine. Proud to have them both as business partners.
