What about Total Nuclear Annihilation, is that trademarked? Bonus: cheesy acronym.

Backglass looks awesome in person; muddy screencap doesn't do it justice. For me the art style matches the music perfectly, but to each his own. I think people are going to be impressed when the whole package is revealed.

#1061 2 years ago
Quoted from kvan99:

Anyways the art is definitely not great...there is no denying it.

Sorry pal I can totally deny your opinion. That's how they work.

#1062 2 years ago

Disappointing but not surprising that in 2017 so many pinball dudes need to be coached through how they could possibly enjoy a game with a female protagonist.

#1065 2 years ago
Quoted from kvan99:

PS: Also you're reading too much into it, it has nothing to do with the female role but rather the Anime style of it.

Zero chance you compare the backglass to the Powerpuff Girls if the character is male. Looks nothing at all like that show. Even "anime" is a stretch.

Anyway, it's too bad you got your hopes up for a Mad Max game (which is also a dream theme of mine) but this is not that game. I don't know how you can say the translite doesn't fit the theme when it's on original theme that someone else created. Whatever he creates is the theme.

Get started on a Mad Max Fury Road pin. If you put Imperator Furiosa on the backglass, I'm a buyer.

Quoted from bangerjay:

I'm sensitive to criticism about this game, b/c I know how hard he's worked on it it and is still working. I mean no renaissance faire this weekend, wtf?!

Silver lining.

#2307 2 years ago
Quoted from davijc02:

I'm literally chomping at the bit to call and place an order. Unfortunately I need to let everyone else jump in line so I can have time to stack cash.
I've never played the game but damn it looks good.

I'm envious of how blown away you're going to be, opening that box to play it for the first time. The speed, the music, the lightshow... buckle up.

#2399 2 years ago
Quoted from davijc02:

Are any prototype games planned to be in the Chicago area at all?

Rumor has it one of the early games will be on location at Brixie's, which already has a handful of top shelf pins operated & maintained by a collector. And if you like video games, Galloping Ghost, the largest old-school arcade in the USA (maybe the world) is a couple blocks away. About 3.5 hours from Fort Wayne, but at least it's closer than Wisconsin.

#2406 2 years ago
Quoted from Fortytwo:

Should calm a bit once broke in like the white wood.

When my Tron LE was new it played like the laws of physics don't exist, but eventually it settled down. Great fast games usually play a little crazy fresh out of the box. I consider it a feature.

#2466 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinfactory2000:

can someone post (again I'm sure) the livestream info? Thanks

Today at 5 pm CDT from the Spooky factory.

I don't know if it was the shaker, subwoofer, or (likely) both, but the super spinner thump was UNREAL on Saturday night. I'm not even a fan of shakers, but this was awesome. My whole group laughed at how ridiculous it was every time someone ripped a super spinner. That combined with a hardwood floor suspended over the basement = free foot massage for the whole room.

Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

This, in turn, drops the overall height of the backbox down about 4-5 inches if I remember correctly. TNA is actually the same height as an 80's Bally.

Great game for people whose basements are usually too short for toppers. TNA beacon fits!

Quoted from FatPanda:

It's a super awesome story, and too bad it didn't match up with the Spooky Documentary timelines. Would have been awesome to see Scott's story retold.

I hear sequels are big these days.

Quoted from OffshoreTrucker:

Pretty sure it was 4-5, rush from playing at the time. Posted a 2,012,420 score.

Amazing game for your first time playing it. I might have cracked 2 mil once, but I don't think I've seen the 4th reactor.

#4192 2 years ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

TNA can go from 1 to 10 balls per game.

Also from 1 to 9 reactors! One reactor battles for dollars are a blast, and level the playing field a bit if you have some novice players in the mix.

#4195 2 years ago
Quoted from BillySastard:

Could you explain this one a little more please? Sounds like something I could play with my wife and kid.

You can choose how many reactors it takes to reach Total Nuclear Annihilation. Default setting is all nine. When you reach TNA, you get a bonus and the game effectively ends. If you achieve it before ball 3, plunge any remaining balls and receive the TNA bonus again. So no matter how great you play, one reactor and you're done. The challenge is to maximize one reactor before blowing it (preferably during multiball, with multipliers).

#4196 2 years ago

Just thought of something for Scott to implement in his ample free time: timed reactor battles!

#4206 2 years ago
Quoted from ARTMAN:

It's right next to Sushi Station as well. Pinball and conveyor sushi in one trip? Oh my.

Damn, makes me wish I still lived in Des Plaines! Used to stop by Sushi Station all the time.

It was awesome to see high-level TNA competition on the stream. I know a few tricks those sharpshooters haven't learned yet.

Or you guys could just wait.

#4403 2 years ago
Quoted from twhtalm:

There should be a free set of target decals or a copy of the soundtrack for every machine number that was skipped, provided by whoever is jumping.

Was anyone promised they'd receive their game in numerical order? You guys get way too worked up over this number stuff. Even LEs from Stern aren't built and shipped in numerical order. Some dummies request certain numbers, so they dig that # plate out of the box. And you can bet they ship games in whatever order serves their purposes, not in the order people put money down.

Quoted from moonduckie78:

My favorite one was that legendary Phish show in the Florida Everglades for New Years Eve 2000, which started before midnight, and the band played....WITHOUT TAKING A SINGLE BREAK.....until after SUNRISE!!!! I get chills just thinking about that one.

I too get a chill down my spine thinking about that much Phish.

It would be a great game for $ games.

Hands down, the best modern game for dollar games.

Quoted from BorgDog:

Oh, and oh so close on that last game.

Eight going on nine, 10+ million points. Hell of a game to end the stream on.

#4749 1 year ago
Quoted from herg:

Any idea how that game was set up? Slope? Out lane posts? Coil settings?

Sorry, no idea. Coil settings seemed to be default based on the crazy strong slingshots.

#4797 1 year ago
Quoted from benheck:

Damn I lost my bet! (299)

Pretty sure I bet 276. Glad to lose!

#4812 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

What's with all the strange numbers?

276 was the phone prefix in my hometown. Just popped into my head. I knew it was a dumb bid, but oh well.

But if I can play "well, actually" in hindsight, I think they're doing batches of 25 internally. They could've built 275 and also count Scott's unnumbered test game. It has a butter cabinet and everything! That counts, right?

That is a great picture, even though I look like I am stoned or drunk or both.

I smell a new Scott Danesi Is Awesome t-shirt. If only I knew someone with a shirt printer...

#5158 1 year ago
Quoted from Yoko2una:

Then Bowen walks in and gets 7 reactors in 2 balls, and then drains with one shot on the 9th reactor on ball 3.

The fact that Bowen has blown reactor 9 at least twice but still can't get enough speaks volumes.

#5578 1 year ago
Quoted from herg:

The best I've done is 10 balls plus 2 EB.

That's exactly how many it took for me on a four-player co-op game. First try, though! Felt so good to plunge out those last two balls for the massive TNA bonus collect.
