Quoted from Darth_Chris:

Gi joe cartoon version could be fun

Can’t say it enough. I would be first in line to grab an LE!

#27152 36 days ago

Is there a pinball festival or function that Stern will announce their next release? Do you think it will just be a random day they will announce

#27153 35 days ago

Holy crap ! I’m just catching up in this thread and I will start making a stronger effort to not become the grumpy old man I’ll say this , I really hope Stern continues to bring modern day themes into pinball .Music is the hard one and I think this is where Danger comes in .I feel he’s going to be the bridge to crossing over to the younger crew with band pins .Movies and current series seem easier than music to me .Eddy and Borg seem pretty flexible in what’s thrown they’re way and Elwin can make any fart smell like a bouquet of flowers .Let’s not forget George but Im guessing things slowing down will lead him more into the connected project and taking it to new levels .All in all crazy times but Stern seems to have as solid a crew as ever .Good times ahead for all ages !! Now when will I get my fing Goonies !! lmao

#27154 35 days ago

No puedo decir lo suficiente. ¡Sería el primero en la fila para tomar un LE!</blockquote

Stern said the next release is in August.

Awesome thank you. I just hope what the theme is it does well, even if it doesn't appeal to me. It will just give me a chance to save up for a premium lol

#27157 35 days ago

Could you maybe elaborate on how they looked at least? Decent artwork?

Quoted from richierich85:

Guys it's a comic vemon pinball and a jaws pinball are two next titles.... I have personally seen the art package for both titles, and I am not at liberty to discuss how, who, when I was shown and my source from inside stern factory.. thanks

#27158 35 days ago
Quoted from Rizmo:

Saturday Night Live has not really been decent in 20 sum years.

Yep, and the only reason to tune in to the current SNL is Kate McKinnon, and she's leaving.

Oh…it’s still funny.

Licence was picked up by another manufacturer before AP made their announcement official.

Problem is everyone saw it coming from a mile away so stern sure did and snapped up sonic, school yard error on APs part,

I just herd another company got the Sonic IP. They were talking about that in the podcast very briefly. It should be interesting to see what American will pop out next

#27170 33 days ago

Stern Venom? Hope its comic book based. Those movies are not great.

#27172 33 days ago

AP didn’t act fast enough and Stern got the IP out from underneath them. Just like they did to Spooky with Godzilla.

Sooooo no one’s gonna talk about this picture of Gary and Seth Davis that dropped on the Stern social account today?

Hmmm...wonder if we see a Sonic pin sooner than expected. This is awesome! A Sonic pin would essentially be impossible for me to resist.

Man the more I think about this, the more excited I get. We are finally getting a Sonic pin!

#27176 33 days ago

That’s a dig at American Pinball surely..

So crujones4life, if you had to choose between BTTF and Sonic, which would you choose?

Sonic would change my buying plans for the year. Also would line up with delaying from early '22 (when the movie came out)

They are just rubbing it in APs face. They’ll never make the game.

It was a dick move, but after seeing what happened to Halloween/Ultraman, Godzilla ended up in the right place.

What happened was….Halloween is a rad game.

It may be ok someday with the new art (supposedly coming) and better software (?), but I don't see how they get around the poor playfield design. Success is handicapped by that from the start.

And for fun, ask Joel what he thinks about Halloween when he's streaming for The Pinball Network or FlipnOut on Wed/Thurs nights.

Stern just got lucky hiring Elwin. Godzilla could of ended end up being a turd like Led Zeppelin, mandalorian, and Rush is.

Pinball is not easy.

That said, be careful of your debate position. This one loses immediately because the hit-to-turd ratio at Stern is WAY better than Spooky. ALL the manufacturers have bright spots, but NONE of them are batting a thousand.

If you're going to name drop people dumping on HW then use Karl DeAngelo, doubt many care about Joel's opinion to be honest. Karl streamed it early on when code was bare bones so deserved criticism but code is way different now. Many are enjoying the game now and don't have a stream to influence other people's opinions.

#27190 33 days ago

Exactly. It’s a small company coding two games at once, its gonna take some time. The game shoots great and there’s only one minor design change that I would have made. Also the new code and wizard mode is RAD. Best use of a knocker in the HISTORY of pinball. And with all honesty I could give a flying [email protected] what *Joel the SHILL thinks about Spooky games. I watched him on stream playing and enjoying Halloween only to go on TPN and claim “ohhhh I only looked like I was having fun because I drank too many beers”. Guy is a turd.

* not Joel, was thinking of the Buffalo pinball guy. Nick I think. Sorry Joel haha

Joel is just fun to needle about it since he pooh-beared his way into a fanboy beehive and learned that bees sting when he aired his honest Halloween opinions. I don't think Karl ever dumped on Halloween on his streams, though he had a right to with the massive amount of problems that showed up in his skilled hands on the stream I saw.

Also, you don't understand the word coerce. That involves threats or violence/force. No one I know of has coerced anyone to not like Halloween/Ultraman. The worst I've seen is people explaining why they didn't like it on streams. Like it or not, people can like what they like. If people dig the Halloween/Ultraman pin, great. But the real test of the damage Spooky did to themselves will come with their NEXT pin. They burned a lot of their massive fan goodwill with this release. Will they be able to do enough to get most of it back by the next release? I was working on Rick and Morty #1 yesterday having this exact conversation with someone.

Just being real. I like some of Spooky's pins, but I'm clear-eyed. Alice Cooper was the first one they did I almost bought NIB, and I had talked myself into getting Ultraman before I even saw it on theme alone. But then I saw it, and was like, "aw, hell naw." In general Spooky was on an upward trajectory, but hubris really caused a self-inflicted wound with H/U. I'm rooting for them to fix this, but time will tell.

I think you're talking about Nick at Buffalo pinball on that one but the point remains that the code is way better now.

agreed. i like the movies and all, but comic book is better for the art and vision of the machine. venom would have great potential like deadpool.

i sure hope it's not sonic. no desire to see a sonic movie or a dead video game franchise. super mario would be much better.

Yes, coerced was the wrong term to use, maybe influenced by someone else's experience is a better choice.

#27196 32 days ago

The only buyers who got “burned” on these titles were flippers. F ‘em. And you’re right Karl never dumped on the game and there were no “problems” on the stream other than the fact that he got beyond where the code was at that point. Anyone watching that stream from 8 months ago and passing judgments is being foolish. There have been three code updates since then including a sub wiz and the new wiz mode. They have hired a new animation studio which will be included in a code update for UM in July and probably Aug for HWN It’s curious to me that no one has any patience when it comes to Spooky code but will sing praises to something like Stern’s RUSH or Mandalorian which were hardly a shell at launch. And talk about “layout issues”. Mando is a horrific clunk fest. Anyway, I’m getting a bit tired of people bashing the smaller companies. I think it honestly comes down to this. People want what is comfortable and relatable to them. For most people…it’s not Halloween. Personally…I like weird shit…and horror films. So…the game is for me. Upper playfields? No prob…one of my favorite games is TSPP. This feels very similar to me.

So do 1 game properly. Problem solved.

#27200 32 days ago

Heyyyy aren’t you the flipper who got burnt on BOTH games because you weren’t patient enough to wait out code dev… then had a series of meltdowns about it in the owners forum? (honest question, can’t remember if it was you or not)
