Omg. I'm super excited. Might have to make some room!

Quoted from Tranquilize:

That might be a bit early.

It'll be different. Some may like that, some don't but I'm excited that we'll get something else then the "same old, same old".
(Not saying "same old" is bad. Raza will never shoot as cool as AVIQ; but you know a Stern when you see a Stern. Looking forward to a bit of fresh air.)

I almost forgot what the game looked like .
It's a good-looking machine , I hope they keep the stainless steel .

#9505 39 days ago

Well we finally have an actual date for something at least. I really do hope they deliver all kinds of new and awesome innovative features and many great games. I have no personal stake in it, I just love pinball!

#9506 39 days ago

Unfortunately I can't help but think the "big reveal" will be only marginally different than what we saw at the Houston show, which will be underwhelming to say the least. If so, I can't get over how tone-deaf this is. Avengers came out of nowhere and just blew everybody's shit. If you follow that up with a countdown clock to a lesser game that everyone's already seen before...ouch! Makes me hopeful (but not optimistic) that there's something more than we expect.

Regardless, I got a laugh out of one of the hashtags from the instagram post. #pastdue That's pretty funny and more self-deprecating than we typically see Robert.

#9507 39 days ago

My guess is that is the Release date (when they just show the "final" game), not when the games will actually be ready to sell and ship.

They reveal RAZA and say "shipping soon"!

That could be another year for all we know. Hope I'm wrong and they have games ready to sell and ship on 9/21/2020

They did on purpose not share any video from that Houston show or invite anyone; they allready topped that.

Quoted from insx:

It's got a retro future theme. As in, back in the ~50's, this is how they pictured the future to be.

I agree, I think we will simply see a slightly improved version of RAZA (i.e - fixed ramp, more code/animations) and a "shipping soon" announcement. There will also be some more vague talk of "lots of other machines/designs/things" being "on the way".

Maybe we will get a firm ship date for RAZA, but even that is probably too much to hope for.

it was designed ages ago

#9514 39 days ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

Avengers came out of nowhere and just blew everybody's shit

That’s quite a graphic image you paint there. I’m trying to imagine a pinball game blowing my shit. Different scenarios do come to mind. Is it strong enough to deform the shit or does it just distribute the smell. In US, there’s a pool of water in the toilet - frequently the shit is under water - it would probably get the floor real wet. Bad scene, that.

Maybe it did, though, blow my shit, I was kind of hyped for a day after the release of pictures, but alas, the wind died down fairly quickly - which is probably a good thing considering the stench.

#9515 39 days ago

More grandstanding .... More posts for 10 more days.

Wooo hoo ! Deeproot is THE PINBALL COMPANY

#9516 39 days ago

I wonder if we’ll see the Pixar level animations in this reveal.

#9517 39 days ago

So what's the status on Deeproot making the Zidware customers whole again? I was chatting with a woman on Facebook that they are backing out of it. Is this true? (Not going through 190 pages to search for it.)

#9518 39 days ago

Status a month or so ago, when they promised them the game for September: No.

#9519 39 days ago

What was the stipulation on the contract DR did with JPop buyers on the machines owed? That machines would be provided before a certain date? Or just go into production before a certain date? I presume the due date is end of Sept.

Unfortunately my expectation is so low that I assume 9.21.20 will be the date they will start teasing the next set of teasers leading towards the date of the teasers after that, followed by an unfortunate email stating that they are reorganizing to change their structure for the teasers that will follow that right around the corner.

I don't see it this way. I love Jpops games, and the proto looked good to me. TOTAN's modes are kinda lame, but the playfield design makes up for it tenfold. This game will have great design, great art, quality and some new innovation. I also see the software being way better than jpops 90s games. I'd rather be in on this than another stupid Avengers game. I love Keith's design's, but I'm looking for something new. The game will be better than the proto. Levi will still find something to bitch about, but he'd bitch about anything they put out at this point.

I do have an issue to share though. I tried to email them using the distro email to inquire about purchase, and this is what bounced back:

Not so encouraging.

Just wait till it‘s „there“. ;D

But yeah, that the mail adress isn‘t working doesn‘t leave a good impression. Was the same problem with the „hammer tested“ mails... :-/

My only suspicion is why MG isn't being promoted? That game (minus software and maybe a few hardware tweaks) was ready to go.
Maybe the secret is the obvious. If DR releases RAZA and MG in their first "official" year what bragging rights right? Now imagine if AIW is actually ready as well. They could brag 3 machines in their first official year. Not to mention the hammer proof play field and any other undisclosed new industry standards?

I'm excited to see DR moving forward! This little light of mine ... I'm gonna let it shine!

#9527 38 days ago

Dear Kaneda.

That Patent has been posted multiple times and confirmed, by themselfes, that it was something they evaluated but is NOT going to be in the final product.

Of course I‘m happily proven wrong.

Quoted from CLEllison:

Magic Girl was no where near ready to go as most of the mechs didn't work/weren't even in the game.

Quoted from GuiitarMan:

Correct. Robert said in the Kaneda podcast months ago, MG is a 2021 game at the earliest, along with AIW.

Wasn’t their first official year like two years ago though?

Looking back Jpop's Houdini was a pretty game as well.

If you like that you should see his KISS!

Nobody makes blinking boxes of styrofoam, lights, and paper ramps quite like Jpop. DUde is a genius!

Quoted from wesman:

Side tangent. If they do want outside distro help, does that infer the number of RAZA stock will NOT be super duper limited, as in under 200 or sumthin'?
I hope it's a good bit over 500, so these things are super difficult to get down the road, or are sold out immediately or stupidly overpriced.
I'd be up for a 5K RAZA...maybe, but not a 7K and up one.

RAZA was getting made to get the Zidware people paid off I thought. Are you only interested in possible rarity? Thats when the real pins are supposed to be coming.

I already love this company !!

It takes steel balls to talk this way... that means you can back it up hence, great things to come GO GO GO Deeproot!!!

#9538 37 days ago

AH - mystery solved. B. D. stands for "Before Deeproot".

Quoted from CLEllison:

I tossed that out there a few weeks ago. Many seem to agree. If that's actually what it is, Robert has hugeass balls. Great for him if he backs it up!!!

Quoted from marlboroman:

I’ve met a lot of people that were all talk, no action. Big balls, right up until they get hit. Talking a good game doesn’t mean they can back it up. Backing it up means you can back it up. Put up or shut up. Sure, go Deeproot, but darn it, get going and do something. Less talky, more walky.

BD should be changed to BS in my opinion.

Still no game. That was said 4 years ago. Since then Stern have released 10 titles or maybe even more. Killer games too I may add.

What has Deeproot released? I understand people are willing Deeproot on and I sincerely hope we see a game ship in 2020 and not more broken promises.

Really interesting marketing strategy, where they appear to only be marketing (in secret?!) to Pinside users. There is no other attempt to reach out beyond this small group, which representes only a fraction of pinball fans worldwide.

I'm pretty sure this is a RAZA release. No doubt.

We've seen the game (Houston expo). It's just another pinball machine. I don't get the big talk.

The hype is on their FB page and also on their internet page. I think it is available to anyone not just pinheads. I am not sure how to post the links, maybe some of the other pinsiders can help with this?

I think because there are so many broken promises from Deeproot, loads of people have lost interest in a pinball machine except us pinheads.

For their sake I sincerely hope so. The game will have to be great and start shipping straight away I think.

I really want to see that too. Announcement and at least a soft launch. Get on with it..!

I don‘t intend to marry Mr. Müller, I‘m just interrested in the potential of their product line.

The successful characters and stories was all that differentiates wwf from the traveling wrestling shows that play to school gyms
