What are the odds of Stranger Things?
My wifes favorite show, she has greenlighted a NIB purchase if that theme ever gets picked up and made.
Where did this Quicksilver/Led Zep mashup rumour originate? Ive only heard about it in this thread. Sounds interesting to me as long as its not Beatles pricing.
Always a laundry list of 1980s movies suggested for pin themes. One that I havent seen mentioned is E.T., seems like that would be fairly well suited to base a pin on what with the bicycle chase, phoning home, maybe collecting Reeses Pieces and so on.
Some kind of mech to make a playfield mounted E.T.s neck elongate would be kinda cool.
Quoted from kvan99:
It's either that or "Stranger Things", I think they picked up S-Things license just to piss me off, I had mentioned anyone would do that license justice except them....but if Brian Eddy's is on it so the joke is on them.
PS: Judging by Dirty Donny's S-Things poster that he posted, I have to say he got the art wrong though.
Right! The teaser of the poster looked so cool, then when the whole poster was revealed it was really blah.
Lots of people sure do say “ I would buy (Theme XXX) sight unseen!” and “Take my money!” and “This title would be an insta- buy for me!” Because of this mindset, no matter what the next Stern is its:
A: probably going to have a price increase
B: certainly going to have incomplete code
C: likely going to suffer from quality control issues
None of these problems are ever going to go away with people consistently throwing large sums of money at a product they have never even actually seen or for that matter, a product that hasnt even been reviewed by any actual consumers. Whatever happened to demanding a proven quality product that has been adequately tested and performs properly out of the box?
If people were a bit more patient and didnt buy, say, all 400 LE models of a game before its even been released or reviewed maybe Stern would put a bit more effort into these games before putting them out.
Cross generational appeal with Stranger Things’ 1980s setting for sure.
Resonates with us old farts cause we were there and its popular with younger folks too, my kids are in their 20s and they like it. The 80s are hot right now! Would like to see this game become a reality.
I checked out my games after reading this and yeah, Iron Maiden feels a lot flimsier than even Ghostbusters from just a couple years earlier. Never really noticed but wow theres really a big difference in the weight and solid-ness (solidity?) between those two games. Maidens cabinet does feel pretty puny. I wonder if thats why I have so much trouble with scraping the inside of the Maiden cabinet every damn time I lift the playfield, perhaps the cabinet is sitting twisted slightly from being so lightweight.
Ill buy whatever comes out too for sure! Without seeing it or playing it! Take my money! Its a must-buy! Sight unseen!
Probably already been mentioned but a Joker pin could be a good “bad guy“ pin possibility.
