Quoted from robotron:
yeah avengers after how many years? wwe how many months? why attack the frustrated buyers? these code delays are just awful customer service. bad enough you have to repair and tweak a nib game when you get it, but the delay in code is just not acceptable. the way stern is producing pins, they better start building pins with better code and updating the code much sooner.
I'm not attacking frustrated buyers. I attacked the person that said Stern has abandoned KISS. That's just a flat out lie. Opinions are one thing but you can't make up your own facts. The only game I can think of that Stern has probably abandoned is Wheel of Fortune. There is ZERO evidence that Stern has abandoned KISS. AND, if you feel like Stern is abandoning games then don't buy Stern pinball machines.
Also, check out this thread from 4 years ago.
And how many games has Stern sold since 2012? The threads discussing "don't buy games until prices come down" and "Stern sucks because they never update code" must be falling on deaf ears because all I see are other threads anticipating Stern's next game and how great GOT and TWD are. Meanwhile, Stern continues to sell plenty of games.
THIS is how you discuss how much better said game would be with better code:
Quoted from TimeBandit:
Only issues I have with mine are code related. I still walk up to this beauty every time I play with a plan to do something better than I did last time. Do I love the code as is? No way. It needs fixing. But can I beat it now? Also no way. Anything mechanically wrong? Again, no way. This baby gonna rock when the code drops.
