Stranger Things is a better pin to make than BTTF.

#5352 11 months ago
Quoted from bent98:

TMNT will be the first stern to have network play.


Where did you hear this?

#5353 11 months ago

I could see TMNT being networked. You have 4 Turtles to choose from, and each one gives you certain perks on your game. You and your friends can team up to take down the foot clan and destroy shreddar! Even if it isn't a networked game they should implement co-op mode - just sayin'.

Not really jazzed about network play. Think that idea is silly and I'd rather my money go to something that I would enjoy. Because, trust me... If they do network a pin, that would come out of the pins production budget. So you'd lose other features if you gained that...

With that being said. Co-op play... That would be amazing. Let the players pick their turtles and like you said, work your way through the game. I'd be very tempted for that feature, and the theme to be honest. And also that way my family doesn't have to complain that I win all the time(I don't... I still lose about 20-30% of the time), but generally when I lose its a garbage game. And when I win, I generally destroy them... But, this way I can convince them to play more often as we're a team... That really would be cool. And would help it stand out more. I know TNA has co-op, but still its not a feature many games have. So that be amazing.

Any idea who’s design Stranger Things and TMNT??

#5358 11 months ago

no but they may offer network play as an option in the future for other games. Not sure if it will have a camera like JJP games ie dialed in.

#5359 11 months ago
Quoted from J85M:

Sranger Things might be a Brian Eddy game, TMNT could be a John Borg one.

#5360 11 months ago
Quoted from Peanuts:

Sranger Things might be a Brian Eddy game, TMNT could be a John Borg one.

Damn... I like Eddy's games. Never seen stranger things and no real desire to go out of my way and watch. One day I might... Still, I guess its always good to have pins made that I have no desire to own. Limited space and all that jazz... So just means if that is true I'll play it on location, which is perfectly fine.

Borg does good work. And I guess that means their will be a bash toy probably where groot or sparky or herman is. LOL. Just teasing. Borg makes really good games.

#5361 11 months ago

Stranger Things is solid show and theme. Eddy is next. Is Stranger Things too? I’d be

The last “current” Stern theme was what? Deadpool?

Stranger Things seems like a great choice, it gets both 80's nostalgia and a current show/theme all in one pin. Would be interested in seeing what they make of that one.

Brain Eddy on Stranger Things that would be fantastic.. Who would be up to code this?

#5367 11 months ago

Stranger things followed by TMNT sounds good to me I’d buy both!

Any idea when?

Will we see anything this year or is it going to be January?

#5368 11 months ago

Combine themes...Teenage Mutant Things ..or Stranger Turtles

#5369 11 months ago
Quoted from frankmac:

Tanio's been out on code since Deadpool. He helped Dwight clean up Ghostbusters. I could believe that he's been working with Brian on Stranger Things given the timing. Since Tanio did an outstanding job on Deadpool, and Ghostbusters is much-improved, very happy if he's on the Brian Eddy pin.

My Alice Cooper has co-op too! And 2 different modes of it. First mode all players team up against the machine. Second mode, player's 1 & 3 battle player's 2 & 4. Fun Fun!

That makes sense. Alice Cooper and TNA are both Spooky. But, I like that they have the option b of players 1,3 vs 2,4. That is smart. I like some of the ideas that Spooky is bringing into pinball. They're not high end like JJP, but they got good ideas and energy. If they ever do make a 2nd run of TNA I might try to snag one. Should have the space and money by the time/if the time ever occurs.

I bought TNA mainly for the co-op mode. I love being able to play pinball with someone and not always against someone. I truly do not understand why only Spooky games have co-op mode. If TMNT actually has co-op mode, that would be huge.

I'll tell you this. ACNC is the hands down greatest pin I have ever played! Never had a pin create ambiance like this pin. Shots take practice, but that's a perfect home pin. The artwork, animations, lights (All RGB) , music and sound are stellar! All modes are different and rules are fun and easy to learn. Much to do and more coming! If you like a horror theme, this is a masterpiece! As far as not high end, their build quality puts Stern to shame. Playfields are solid and problem free now with ACNC. They worked it all out. You have to play this game in a home where you can hear it! … F****** Awesome!!!!!!!!

The shot geometry on ACNC is a big issue for me .

Also I am not a big fan of losing eye contact with the pinball on the top side of the playfield.

When Stern does dive deep as far as online and local link.

The Wifi component should be optional i.e. extra 50 bucks for the add on module. Give people the option would be a good move.

Bluetooth should be mandatory in Spike 3 , There is no reason to jump cost hardware wise.

The extra expense is in development/code.

Optional? Extra charge? I think prices are already high enough, they should be able to add Bluetooth and WiFi without another price hike or additional charges.

#5380 11 months ago

IF there will be a music pin in 2020, maybe Rammstein could be work.
Fans in US and EU.
Try it, Stern.

Yes, I agree, NiB Prices are crazy .

The thought is that there is some backlash against web connectivity. So an easy option would be a simple solution (optional).

Framework, drivers can be on Spike 3 main board , just add on small pcb for web connect, simple, then everyone can be happy

There aren't many themes that would force me but a full featured Rammstein with all their clips included would be an instant LE buy for me!

Rammstein would be amazing !

Hardcore and epic , Pinball emotion and elation at all time high.

I want a game with deep/engaging, immersive vision and audio, no soft baby shit happy happy joy joy,

That's is why Megadeth is another great choice for a music pin.
While we are here lets boycott that ripp off Viagogo shit, Man What a Scam that crap is !

I just don’t like giving Stern ideas that they can add optional charges to their features matrix, especially when Bluetooth and web connectivity are old tech for most other electrical manufacturing/sales industries, a simple on/off switch or setting in the games menu will allow those that want it on and those that don’t can turn it off.

Charging extra for what is essentially old/common place tech feels at odds to me, it’s new to pinball or it’s 10 years to late to pinball depending how you look at it.

Shot geometry? Don't understand what you mean? Not all games are flow games. Bricked shots are because of inaccurate shooting. Play better! I bought this game exactly because it isn't another flow game like my ST pro. It's one reason why I love this game, it takes practice to get the shots down and when you make them, it's rewarding! It also has the best upper PF in modern pinball IMO! This game gets an unfair rap because people judge it in a public place after a few games. This isn't a pin you'll work out in a few games and why it's a good players pin for home use. And when you get this table rockin, it's awesome! Hiding the ball under the upper playfield and sculpts is actually an objective in one of the modes. The longer the ball stays hidden from view, the more points are awarded. It's cumulative until the count down ends. It starts with an 11 second countdown timer. If you make a shot and the ball stays hidden for say 2.7 seconds, it will count down from 11 sec to 8.3 sec and award points. The longer it's hidden from view, the more pointed are awarded. Unique feature and fun!

I like this idea, but Dave Mustaine is on a blacklist for his truthiness. As far as connectivity crap goes, how many of you are paying about $8k more for software and computer features you NEVER EVER use in your cars right now. Some people never seem to learn.

Did someone say DIO???

It won't happen. Dio was always just a bit less famous than all the other bands. Don't get me wrong he's my favorite singer ever. hence DIOSPINBALL. My house is called Dio'sPlace(or at least my house's wifi is).

I don't see a Dio pin happening. But, it be amazing. And deserving. 3 all time classic albums with 3 different bands. Very important voice in the creation of heavy metal.

The one thing about Wendy Dio is she needs to get off her butt and release the unreleased dio tracks already.
I don't care if its only 3-5 songs... Dig deep into the archives and find maybe other sessions he did, or live tracks to fill it out... Or maybe throw metal will never die on it. Strike a deal with the guy who owns that songs rights.
Get that album out. And get an authorized bio out. And maybe get the hologram tour in North America.

Well.. I'm not a fan of Jack Black. But, the cool thing about Brutal Legend it had a great soundtrack. Metal Church and Michael Schenker had songs on it. Two groups that most people are not familiar with.

I'm a huge Schenker fan. I own almost all his 42 studio albums. There are a few thank yous I need to buy. And honestly... Those are good... But, they're acoustic so I'm not in a rush to buy them. I own 3 of the 5. One is the same but with orchestra.

Basically I'd like any music pin, but an Ozzy pin, or a Black Sabbath pin... Because, you know they're only going to do Ozzy Sabbath...

Yeah... Heaven and Hell never happened, and wasn't only one of the most important metal albums ever... People gloss over that era of Sabbath. But, really Mob Rules was just as influential. That was thrash before thrash came out. It predated most of the major thrash bands debut albums. Just by a little bit, but you bet it influenced them.

Quoted from apinballwiz:

Sorry to be a dunce but how does the co-op mode work?

Imagine playing with 6 balls instead of 3. You and a partner alternate but are playing the same game and end with the same score. You are just working together instead of competing against each other. You can play up to 4 people all working through the same game (so 12 balls) or you can do where 1 and 3 are one team and 2 and 4 are another team. This is fantastic for playing with non pinball players so that you are working together instead of competing against one another.
