The Walking Dead rolls over after 4.2 and some odd billion as well. It's a code problem, but not unique to KISS. If I had to guess it's that they're using an unsigned integer to store score, which has a maximum value of 4,294,967,295 before rolling to zero.

So when can I look forward to a Led Zeppelin pin?

Quoted from Rarehero:

That's some troll-ass game rating. I think Ghostbusters is a garbage fire...but my rating ended up as a 5.3 lol

Tell me about it. How in the **** is Metallica ever a 1.21? The code is complete, the rules are good and provide strategic variety, there's several good multiballs, there's no single-best scoring approach, plus it means he scored it a 1 for art on playfield/glass/cabinet and animations. Sound QUALITY is objectively good even if you dislike Metallica's library. The layout is at WORST derivative of MM / AFM. You could argue the Prem/LE features add very little above the Pro, or sometimes cause extra mechanical problems that need chasing. Total troll score.

I can't comment on AC/DC because I haven't bothered to play it (don't care for the band), but it has always looked to be at least a 7. Some cool ideas going on and fun integration with the cannon. I saw Bowen play it and the songs seem well integrated. Plus it had TONS of "firsts" for Stern that are now used all over.

I don't think even my most hated game would rank below a 3 or a 4. Your quote really is worth repeating and those ratings are on something besides what's inside the game.

One point twenty one credibilitywatts!?

Your comment addresses 2 of the 16 aspects you're supposed to score.

Playfield art is a 1? Backglass art? Animations? Sound QUALITY (even if you don't like Metallica as a band). Cohesiveness of themeing?

The rating is not "10 if I like it 1 if I think it's boring". It has sixteen different aspects. Only 5 of which involve gameplay (maybe 6 depending on how you think about it).

Lol, the butt hurt. Yes, the person rating games at 1.21 because his beef with Stern is the one to be commenting on "butt hurt".

Sorry for wishing people actually read instructions and used systems for their purpose.

I'd wager the fingerpointing belongs with the delivery company. I worked docks high school through early college. I've seen how poorly, well... more or less anything being shipped from small parts to engines to entire industrial machines are treated.
