Quoted from frankmac:

So do 1 game properly. Problem solved.

You can bet two themes at once won't ever be offered again with Spooky, just because some people have the patience of a five year old. I look up to proper games like Rush that have an idiot sandwich for a scoop protector or GNR that have unbalanced scoring with no motivation to ever play the modes.

#27203 79 days ago

Sonic could be the next Designe by Jack Danger. Can't wait to see what they come up with.

I liked Ryan McQuaid Designe he put a lot of effort in it. Also his topper looked great.

Hope they do some multi game where you can deside wich game you like to play. Like Ryan wanted it or like it is on the Alien. That would be so much fun to have diffrent games on one Pinball.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

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)

A pin with no soul is just a pin with no soul.
100 plays on my Ultraman and it was time to go. The new owner just listed it for sale yesterday also after 50 plays for $6800.. Replaced it with Stern Elvira and it is fantastic great shots and the CODE the is out of this world!! Good bye UltramanHalloween and welcome Elvira.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

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.

Congratulations on your Ultraman. I see why you would defend your new pin. Hopefully you took the 20% discount. 17 listed on market place at deep discounts.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

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.

Hey there, Joel here. So I appreciate PinMonk jokingly bringing up my name in relation to Halloween but I think you might be thinking of someone else. I’ve never streamed Halloween and I also don’t drink on stream so I’m not really following your comments about “me”? Sure I’m not a fan of the game and the few times I’ve played it but I’ve explained many times that what is fun for me might not be fun for you. I hope you love your game. So I’ll join you in shaking my fist at whatever guy you are thinking about but I don’t think it is actually me.

#27207 79 days ago

Yes that was my mistake, apologies. Edited my original post to reflect the mistake.

#27208 79 days ago

I own Halloween, prices are far closer to the NIB with that theme but also I don’t really care cause I’m not a flipper. The game is going to my location and will be payed off in coin drop. I wanted the game, my patrons wanted the game, I played the game and I bought it. Anyway, I used to own Elvira as well. Obviously Lyman code is better than nearly anything else. However, I had multiple games where I completed everything in the code and sold the house by ball 2. So I sold the game. Shoots too easy. Different strokes.

Quoted from PinMonk:

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.

Doesn't change the fact that Stern got lucky hiring Elwin and that's why Godzilla is what it is. It just as easily could have been led Zeppelin

It's not "luck" that Stern hired Elwin, but it is "luck" for Godzilla fans that he got assigned or that he volunteered to do the Godzilla machine.

You are always so misunderstood despite just being an amiable guy that wears his heart on his sleeve. I understand the tats now, I really do. Stay strong, buddy.

This makes no financial sense. That's like $8k vs $24k in free machines. Give me the $24k+ of machines now and I'll see what Halloween looks like in 3 years when I have that fat stack of cash from selling the three I wisely chose in my pocket and have options.

Good on Bug making a break for the big leagues, and more power to him, but I don't want to suffer through his fledgling career mistakes - I'm here for the party with $8k-$12k admission prices per ticket. Note that I will unironically say I was a longtime fan once he figures it out and releases something universally praised, though. I'm not completely insane.

Lol, it's become a PinMonk, mpdpvdpin love story!

To get back on topic (and because I don't want to go through pages of your posts/loveletters, lol), I'd be interested to know what cornerstone you (PinMonk, mpdpvdpin) think Stern will release in August. Your final list, 3 guesses!

#27220 79 days ago

I think Ritchies / Gomez Bond or Eddy Jaws next.

No idea. I really hope it's not Venom and that's a code name for Harry Potter (Voldemort/Slytherin) or Cobra Kai (the, uh, cobra). Jaws I'm like, didn't we already burn this code name on JP? Bond could be fun, but it'd have to be ALL of them (and no, don't forget Lazenby). And BTTF has tons of possibilities. Whatever it is, I'm buying, whether I like the theme or not. One of the perks of temp testing all the machines now is I get to play them all and maybe get past my theme prejudices.

#27223 79 days ago

"However, I had multiple games where I completed everything in the code and sold the house by ball 2. So I sold the game."

The internet and social media is great, isn't it? Here some can be the best pinball players in the world, have super hot girlfriends/wives, and be multimillionnaires (or billionnaires) all while typing from the comfort of a parent's basement.

#27224 79 days ago

mpdpvdpin, oh man, Bond and Jaws are such great titles! I'd say I would be 100% behind both.

PinMonk, I'm not too much into Harry Potter, but I get that it would be an instant success. Jaws, yes, I kinda love what was done with that home-brew, a Jaws pin with all the bells and whistles would be superb! Bond: of course! Lazenby was on par with the best James Bond flicks produced. Goldfinger being the best, IMO!

P.S. PinMonk, you sure make nice mods! Just saying, people should look you up if they don't know. Nothing better than something that actually works with CLEAR instructions!

Thanks. Bad instructions with bad photos are a pet peeve of mine, which is why I pay an illustrator to make illustrations for the items I sell that need instructions. Glad to know you appreciate the effort.

I feel like it could be Jack, on stream the other day he was talking about comparing his design to another one and saying stuff like this is better on mine but this is better here but I tweaked this and it’s better.

He could have been comparing to any machine of course but makes if he was comparing to a theme already done.

My photo is actually not Blackula. It’s from the Kollywood version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ …which is completely bat shit and highly recommended.

I also love that one of the you tube comments on this video reads. “I remember watching this on acid and almost suffocating to death from laughing so hard”

I can see that.
