Quoted from CrazyLevi:

But then you think about it...even an early code Stern is usually as deep as any of those Williams games. Even something like KISS as it is now. So I'll cut them some slack...games like Metallica and Walking Dead are just average releases until the code gets updated. They are working real miracles with the code and it takes time.


The more I play Kiss, the more I enjoy it. The code can absolutely improve, but Jesus Christ, the game has 4 multiballs, a wizard mode, hurry-ups, super scoring, etc. Combined with some difficult shots, it's still a ton of fun. Kiss plays kind of like a jacked SS game, but I think we've come to expect more with modern games. Kiss isn't abandoned or forgotten... It's just taking longer than anticipated for a killer update.

Stern is on a roll. Avengers, Mustang, GOT, etc. Glad I kept the faith with Kiss and I hope the update is huge.

Here is a recipe for banana bread:

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 loaf pans, 8 1/2x4 1/2x2 1/2 inches, or 1 loaf pan, 9x5x3 inches. 2 Mix sugar and butter in large bowl. Stir in eggs until well blended. Add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Bake 35 minutes. Allow to cool.

I can't play the new code for a while, so I'd love to hear more thoughts on how it plays. Is HOF a selectable song or only available in a mode?

Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

Only plays during end wizard mode as I understand it. Definitely not a selectable song as it is now.

That's too bad but at least there's another song to play with in pinball browser. Lighting multiple instruments and once is a plus as well as the grid staying lit.

Any new DMD animations or call outs?

I'm sad to see many of the Kiss games for sale, but I'm riding this one out.

I was talking to an old buddy when I mentioned I collected pinball games. His first question was, "Do you have Kiss??"

Of course, he meant the Bally version, but the moral is Kiss = pinball.

I took my Cliffy out. Installed the Mantis and took that out too. The scoop is too important to get rejected on a clean shot.

I just returned from a long trip, so take this with a grain of salt, but I really dig the new code.

Completing the grid is a breath of fresh air and adds a ton of risk/reward with the shots, especially the right ramp. I also like the new sound effects.

Having said that, the song modes are still blah. They're not even modes, you just hit the flashing light because points.

There is still lots of potential, especially with song based modes and city integration, but the latest code is a step in the right direction.

Where is the code? We are being Gorfed.

Stern is Gorfing us real good.

Quoted from Methos:

I am a huge KISS fan, but the game sucks as it is. Let's be honest. It's boring as hell.
I will never buy another Stern until they clear this sh$t up. This is pathetic.

The game could use polish and has a ton of untapped potential, but it doesn't suck, and it's definitely not boring.

There are 4 multiballs combined with a mix of easy and challenging shots. My biggest complaint is the lack of modes and lackluster song completion.

I still love the game... it's a keeper. But it does need some code love.

#2497 2 years ago
Quoted from Methos:

If it wasn't KISS, I would have sold it by now. I am hoping for a TWD or MET like code update that makes it rock.

I get it, and I think that what's so frustrating. It's good, but it could be great. Combined with Stern's radio silence, there are a lot of rightfully frustrated owners.

Man, I still love Kiss. Sucks balls to hear GG say that code is on the back burner, but the game is a gas. Great shots, fun music, and a wizard mode that's achievable.

I wish there were legit modes and songs that were more than just 'hit blinky lights,' but I'm still happy with the game.

I love Kiss, and Aerosmith was a ton of fun.

Having said that, I just bought RZ. FWIW.

Of course it's coming. I spent 2 hrs uploading custom 1.28 Premium code this weekend. You're welcome Kiss owners!

This thread is like a support group for Kiss fans. We like the game, but there's so much untapped potential.

Good news, but I’ll take it with a grain of salt. At least we (finally) have a little transparency. Steps in the right direction.
