Quoted from wolfemaaan:

"Based in San Antonio, Texas, deeproot® is a family of companies founded by financial and legal professionals with decades of combined experience in the financial markets. deeproot® designs, operates, and manages alternative private equity funds, and investment debenture funds, for accredited or non-accredited investors."
Pinball isn't even mentioned. So the parent company and other companies are making the money. Eventually Deeproot Pinball, but everyone here who thinks they are going out of business because of some simple pinball machines is wrong.
Regardless, looking forward to them turning out a pin, but they are not leaning on this division so they can take their time if they want

Thanks for telling us what we have all known, for years.

I hope for O-din it’s Sledgehammer Pinball tomorrow!

Quoted from o-din:

As long as they get the TV screen right, as far as pinside is concerned, the rest is minor details.

Maybe it's a 3D screen and you wear bifocals

#5557 1 year ago

Looks pretty good to me, typical Jpop in design, a bit too bright on the greens, but maybe in person it looks great.

Quoted from lpeters82:

The pinball community seems to be one of the most polarized. Everything has to either be the "best ever" or "worst ever". Both sides are equally annoying.
EDIT: That's not quite true. As I think about it, I am slightly more annoyed by the "worst ever" group.

That's the problem with high expectations. Robert should have under-promised and over-delivered, then most would be ecstatic for a new Jpop machine, despite the history. Instead, we dissect the prototype and find that it looks strangely familiar. I'd probably buy one based on what I'm seeing, but then my expectations were pretty low with all the hubris blowing around. The best people often say nothing because they don't need to.

#5750 1 year ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

Yeah, I get that. I wasn't a huge fan of how Robert came in with the whole "pinball is easy" talk. However, I look at this machine and see a lot to like, especially from a first time manufacturer.

Agree, it is looking really good. I wasn't a potential customer until now. Is there any more footage of gameplay out there?

Small spinning disk.

Oh, right, the magnet is below the spinner.

Quoted from ZMeny:

Damn! Haha I’m not there. I asked someone there to shoot some video on their cell phone so I could get everyone some gameplay since I wasn’t finding much online. Just trying to get everyone some video but I can’t control the filming. Put down the pitchforks you mean cruel fellow pinheads hahaha still love ya but hurt that you think I filmed that (me crying alone in a corner trying to help).

How about replacing it with a better video?

Eh, never mind. Check back in 6 months...

Quoted from noitbe1:

Generic question: what have we seen revolutionary since pinball 2000 released 19 years ago? What? Big lcd screen? Wow... p3 is the only one.
DR is supposed to have the gut to try with the risk behind. We will see but they didn’t revealed anything as stated in their interview...

Not much can be revolutionary with pinball at this point. Evolutionary, yes, but it needs to retain some nostalgia as part of the experience. The 3D theater in DI shows some cool evolutionary changes, especially when the spotlight extends up into the LCD on the backglass. I wish they’d go further with connecting the playfield to the screen as a direct extension of gameplay in some modes. Alien is great with the screen in the playfield. RGB has been nice. Complexity of code. And so on. I don’t care as much about revolution, evolution, or innovation as this: is it fun? Honestly, Lebowski is very WMS like and incredibly fun to play.

Speaking of fun, how did you get the only prototype Archer by Keith Elwin?! I keep hoping Stern reboots Maiden as the original Archer.

As for RAZA, it’s too early to say. Maybe it will end up great.
