is this guy serious? that interview came off so egoistical and brash.
Quoted from kermit24:
This company reminds me of a hybrid between Dutch and Highway Pinball. The brazen "we will crush you" attitude is similar to Dutch early on. Heighway has also retained the services of Dennis Nordman and Barry Oursler. So having names and an attitude doesn't really equate to any level of success historically.
those companies didnt know how easy it was tho
Quoted from gliebig:
If I do that, how long will it take me to beat the 5billion score I put up the other day?
I dunno, you literally never drain tho if you can hit an orbit. Which makes it a shitty tournament game like the post said you were responding to. I play my first two multiballs with combing the last theater letter into the hurry up mb start. I can beat you score in like 15-20 min? That's not a great score for a decent player O_o it's coded with flaws like most of the jpop games which was the point of the prior post.
I was responding to the guy who was listing it as a well coded jpop game. it can still be a fun game but its not a great rule sheet by a long shot.
But guys... Hold on...
All will be revealed during the FIVE days... Yes FIVE days as in 120 hours... At an undisclosed time...
WTF does one company need 5 days to talk about their company... Apple? Nope, Google? Nope...deeproot???
How long is CES?? Lol
hah, i almost posted that i bet he violated his terms by posting as a joke but didnt want to troll. wtf. I had it typed out by deleted it lol "good will" my ass.
so they are just getting a building ready and are waiting on machines to produce parts and build the games yet they still are on track to have at least 3 finished games by March of 2019 or maybe sooner?
That would be amazing, I wait here with bated breath
Can Robert do another good will for the community and buy the imamaculate baywatch and bring it to TPF each year for us pinheads to pay homage to and add up the play count past 600 in 12 years?
maybe flight out wantdataeast for a meet and greet slash dirt sale and a seminar on how to sell stuff
A forum is "a public meeting place for open discussion"
dissenting opinions are allowed in such an environment
Gonna be hard to fill up the 5 days of deeproot
Maybe they will steal "stay tuned!"
waiting for levi to come in and make a sarcastic statement about how everyone says stern sucks even tho they are the only ones to ship games at 5k blah blah blah
Quoted from o-din:
Like you, I'd probably rather eat Kryptonite than be one of the investors in this venture.
apparently kryptonite is more real than deep root games at this point
Quoted from Manimal:
The vast majority of Stern's production staff are all working for a labor firm. Some are long-term temps, but temps none the less. I was using the same agency for some of my staff down the street from Stern. Just a fact of life in the production realm anymore. If you are going to compete using US workers, you often end up going with temp staff to save the cost of benefits, HR department, etc. My temps got the same benefits as regular staff, but most companies don't go that far. Even some of the design staff are contractors, in that they get paid a flat fee and/or commission. Stern (and pretty much all of the other manufacturers as well) have very few actual company full-time staff. This way if your lines are down for the day, you send everyone home and you don't have to pay them. So while Deep Root's claim to having the most full-time staff may actually be true, it is a play on words and not what folks think of in the actual sense of what was said.
can you make it into a cargument tho?
Quoted from Bublehead:
yancy, do not bring teledildonics into this discussion... I am a happily married man... I am not looking for VR sex. I just wanted to state that for the record... and in case the wife is reading this...
for someone who knows what the hell teledildonics is... fishy at best
im not even gonna google it lol
they just dont hold up to a good player... i was amazed by TOTAN when i was new to the hobby but would never own one now that I know how to play pinball.
i mean, you could literally play the wizard mode in TOTAN until the earth ran out of electricity or your game melted...
I mean, people went and got plane tickets and hotel rooms for TPF 2019 for the 5 days of Deep Root and game reveal... didnt pan out for them. Wouldn't jump on a room and trip for just this and assume it is happening. you know what happens when you assume. you become the (old) deep root logo
he also says he doesnt take posts on here seriously but im pretty sure he said on here he blacklisted folks from the zidware claims for posts on pinside... that seems serious?
