Quoted from TigerLaw:

With the exception of Batman 66, Stern has never really shown an interest in anniversary dates. Matrix would have been a superb theme back when the trilogy was hot, perhaps the new movie in development will breath life back into the franchise.

I believe if Williams/Bally had survived a few more years until 2002 or 2003, we probably would have seen an awesome Matrix pinball machine. Let's hope the modern manufacturers will make one!

#7802 48 days ago

We need a James Bond pin

The way Stern is going right now, I’m liable to buy anything, they are crushing it

Can’t believe how good JP, Elvira and STH is

#7803 48 days ago

I would love an Evil Dead Army of Darkness pin, Goonies and an Adventure Time pin. But those will likely never be made. Such great themes for Pinball.

Has to be Borg if this ever happens. I want a Deadite bash toy! No fan layout nonsense on this title.

Right flipper chainsaw, left flipper boomstick!!!

Do it already Stern!!!

#7805 48 days ago

Army of Darkness would truly be THE SHIT. Imagine all the call outs. GAHD. Top dream theme right here.

Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I really wouldn’t mind if someone did a Western themed pinball machine.
Been done quite a bit in past times, but I think I would be pretty cool for a modern pin if done right.

A TSPP re-themed like Met has been re-themed by Gotg.

#7817 48 days ago

I still want a Queen pin... The soundtrack would be just amazing. Just think of a "We Will Rock You" Mode with bass turned up or some tracks from Live Aid. Let The back glass speak for itself! I would be a day one purchase from JJP or Stern tbh

Quoted from TheGunnett:

By "just like" munsters, I hope he's talking about the placement of the target areas and not literally two giant target bars instead of actual targets. That bad cost-cutting idea needs to die, at least on the Prem/LE level.

It needs to die on all levels.

Quoted from Yoko2una:

I completely agree, but if cost is the issue, it would be more pronounced on a Pro, so the people paying for Prem/LE level should at least be spared.

#7822 48 days ago

1976 here, and TMNT would be fairly high on my list. Especially if they went with the original comic style. As far as the music themes go, I couldn't care less about Rush, Zepplin, or any of that. If the gameplay was amazing I'd consider one, but it would have to be something really special to counteract a stale music theme.

#7823 48 days ago

Funny people hate some of the music the themes that should or could be made but love the crap in Marvel and cartoons that are made, never liked the buttheads but as usual still hope its fun to play and a hit if that makes any sense.

#7824 48 days ago

No more mono bars!!

No idea if any of this is right but if it is correct, is anyone else left a little unimpressed? Spinning disk from X-Men, although a cool mech wasn’t there a spinning pizza on the data east turtles?

And mono bars again..? C’mon Borg your better than that, the data east had like 10 standups, I’m all for revisiting themes but they need to be like Jurassic Park, bigger and better than what’s come before.

The Raph mech does sound cool, player controlled diverter, if it’s as controllable and fun as those on The Shadow... awesome!!!

Yeah, for a title that 'is going to blow everyone away', those reveals are disappointing to say the least!

Quoted from gecko157:

Yeah a classic with a rape scene, ok boomer...

There is no rape scene in Revenge of the Nerds . If you're referring to when Betty and Lewis made love , she knew it wasn't Stan , different height , weight , moves , scent and different clothes . Once they had finished she said " you were wonderful " .
After that they fell in love and got married .
That's why she didn't confirm who she was having sex with visually or audibly .
No jury in the world would find you guilty of rape .
So there was no rape and you're clutching at straws for something that isn't there .

It amazes me how hard some people work to be offended these days.

#7831 47 days ago

It has been my experience since I first heard this term that those who use it... well, lets just say they can see through the walls of their houses.

#7832 47 days ago

Same goes for this phrase.

Quoted from skink91:

That's the only reason I used it , if you're gonna throw around ageist insults , I thought fair enough . I try to avoid controversy these days but I feel this issue should be addressed .
Revenge of the Nerds is a about people being picked on , put down , trodden on in society and standing up for themselves , and is a feel-good movie nothing to do about rape .

#7834 47 days ago

It’s technically rape, moving on...

Betty never complained and enjoyed the experience . She was of age and never filed a complaint , so technically it is not rape .
Nice to hear you're looking out for her though .

#7836 47 days ago

Sex under false pretenses as depicted in the film is technically rape. It doesn’t matter if she married the guy afterwards or what. You’re being ignorant....that’s on you. I’m done with this conversation.

so turtles hey?

#7839 47 days ago

Sterns build and materials can’t justify individual targets so the only way around that is to have one... In order to add other cool stuff. Like a third flipper.... sad to say but I really do think these designers are getting bolted to the ground with a budget and can’t go over a penny. And I think their budget is piss poor to say it friendly...

#7840 47 days ago

Rock of Ages or make up your own theme that includes

Boston, Foreigner, Journey, REO Speedwagon, The Cars, Def Leppard, Pat Benatar etc.

I would like to agree. It sounds logical since a lot of companies try to make as much profit with little effort...
BUT on the other side. How could Keith Elwin release Iron Maiden PRO. With 4 flippers, 3 drop targets and all metal ramps? So I guess it's also a matter of the designers personal preference.

I think Keith has the same BOM on his pros, he just puts it to better use. There are no magnets or scoops, and games like JP Pro doesn't even have a drop target. I would guess that coil count is probably similar between his games and the other designers.

#7843 47 days ago

I wish they would design an orginal theme and put all the saved cash into the game. If they did a good job on the theme integration, I swear it would sell as good if not better than some of their licenses. If Keith designed and Lyman did the code, it would do very well.

Some ideas that almost no one hates:

UFOs with humour like attack from mars
Haunted mansions
Medieval anything
Space and technology
Classic public domain stories: mythology etc. Minotaur would be a great title/theme
Generalized vehicles (monster trucks, motocross)
War/tanks/jets/bombs

There are countless untapped original ideas within these general themes that would work great. I'd rather have a better game than a license.

#7844 47 days ago

Bigfoot the creature not monster truck would do it for me. Id be all in LE

#7845 47 days ago
Quoted from JonCBrand:

I agree. I've been saying for years that I'd like to see a new Bigfoot game...perhaps a Bigfoot vs Yeti. The battles could be epic for pinball. Also, what about Loch Ness Monster? Or Bermuda Triangle? I know I'm just wishing. The trend is license for instant brand recognition.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

This is kind of what JJP did with Dialed In and it didn’t blow everyone away with sales (though a fun game). People say they want original themes but the reality has been that they don’t sell well. I think Stern was somewhat disappointed with the sales of Black Knight and it’s a superb game (though granted a bit sparse from a standpoint of toys).

A game based on King Author, Alice in Wonderland, Beowolf, Greek mythology or some of the other classic stories that in the public domain would be very interesting if done well and targeted to an adult market, but would they sell? Sadly what people say they want is not always what they actually want.

Sorry but theme matters, see JJP Dialed in. Packed game, great shooter but aweful theme. Original themes just dont sell well no matter how good the game is.

The Odyssesy is a well known Greek tale with plenty of story/subject for modes.
