I'm a fan of GOMEZ games. is he going to redo a new game?
With the TRUDEAU case, there is now one designer less at STERN ...

I want to see a new game by George

Don't really care. He has some great ones and some horrible ones.

Time for Keith Elwin to step up to the plate.

Stern will hire a new designer to replace JT.

#5 1 year ago

Personally, I think with Keith Elwin entering, I think that will make up for JT. Stern needs more software personnel to keep up with the games flowing out as it is. The Spike games are much easier to design at a faster pace, with the software lagging behind since more content is now required.

Is that pic Gomez? Dude looks a lot like Ian McShane, therefore he should do a Deadwood pin. ☺

Since the thread was shut down, I will pose this question here. Is there anybody that has any news on the Trudeau case?

#8 1 year ago

Stern should hire some new blood designers. *cough* Scott Danesi *cough*

#9 1 year ago

My guess is the game Trudeau was working on gets released as a Gomes design. Considering he's Stern's Executive Vice President of Game Design.
All they will have to do is move the flippers in.
And slap his name on it instead.

Until he completes his year old Batman66 I sincerely will totally give up on Stern if I hear he's designing something new.

I used to think the same thing but isn't Lyman responsible for code. Gomez is done with bm66.

#13 1 year ago

Gomez was the designer, not the actual person coding software, right? Sometimes a designer will outline what he wants the software engineer to implement, even sometimes being exactingly detailed. Other times there is little direction provided or restrictions. I think George is more like the first kind of designer. Maybe he already has diagrammed what changes he wants the team to do, but there are problems within Stern getting resources - aka it's a low priority now. In any case, the code on Batman66 after one year is an abomination. Stern should change direction and make completing BM66 a Top Priority, adding resources or freeing up Gomez. It is time to push this one over the goal line.

BTT - I hope Gomez gets to design another one, and taking over Trudeau's design would be fabulous.

#14 1 year ago

I think all the designers have made great games and some that aren't so great. Over all I think George Gomez is a great designer. I would like to see him make more games.

#15 1 year ago

It won't happen but I'd love to see what GG could do with a JJP budget.

I doubt Stern pays enough.

#17 1 year ago

Stern hiring Elwin is not necessary the same as a company decision to have four design teams - or concurring projects. Mind you. They need to for a while, if they do not want to slow down, to allow the new blood to get up to speed.

So Trudeau, as we suppose, out for good, may not leave a gap to fill as such.

Three concurring projects, with the odd mix of Gomez/Nordman/... one off games, seems to fit Stern just fine.

As for the software, it must have been a hugh task to build the framework of the new screen. And to learn to integrate it with the games. Look how stunning it has turned out. That has not come easy. If this has sacrifised developement of core game design, this will ease up with experience and the developement of reusable framework components.

As to what to do with the Trudeau game in developement. Phew, that must cause headaches.

I am fine with Scott staying where he is... it's far more likely he'll stay on with Spooky assuming he wants to continue designing pins.
Knowing Scott... I bet he wouldn't want to be in a position of having to abandon his customers to move on to the next game. It's pretty clear to me that he wants people to enjoy his game and his code... equally. Unlike stern who just want your ever decreasing bank account.

If Stern wants to strengthen their business amongst growing competition, they need to change their calculus.

Whether they hire Scott or someone like him, having new designers might inject more excitement and buzz into their games.

I may be wrong but wasn't it Gomez who promised weekly code updates until it was done? If he didn't have the power to make it happen then he shouldn't have said it. Seems like he lied to fan the hype flame.

#22 1 year ago

based on BM66 I would say he does not appear to have the time, passion, or both for it any more.

I would rather see new blood in the game and think itwould be better for Stern as a whole.

Gomez seems to have found his new calling and no reason to change that.

I think to keep Pinside positive. All of the threads are shut down.

george seems to copy himself. I already have LOTR and TF. If you take TF and flip it over, and lay it on top of LOTR. It's damn near a copy. I don't need another copy of the 2 I have. But doesn't really matter since, I refuse to buy another Spike game anyway, or pay the price they try to ask.

I always thought that Monster Bash and Transformers were twins.... I never got that feeling with LOTR....

Borg does the same thing . Borg shoot pinball through the POP bumpers shot is hard . AS, KISS, X-Men , DATAEAST STARWARS . Gomez Playboy is the only game I do not like . All others are good in my opinion even NBA Fastbreak and Avengers with both of there designs thinking out side of the box from Gomez and he finally finished Avengers with 1.7 code uodate. I do agree about the price point you bring up however .

I have a question for you guys. After BM66 why would you ever buy another Gomez game again? He promised the moon and the stars and didn't deliver anything. It's a pretty box of lights that is a below average player with basic code that he won't finish. They charged an arm and a leg for it to boot. Why buy another game that he designs or has anything to do with after he pulled that scam? I don't get it. He flat out bold face lies.

JJP we will get on faith. Hobbit was a beautiful burn, but it's not like they didn't try to make it great. WoZ and Dialed in are great, so JJP#4 will be bought on reputation. That's gone for Stern. No more preorders. LEs are a no-go, regardless of the theme, and I'll wait and see once Premiums are shipping what the new cost-cutting and problems are and make a decision then. They have a long way to go to build any trust with me back. I'm not being ridiculous and saying "never Stern", but I'm definitely waiting on ALL releases from them. No more preorders.

This. Without question. Stern needs to look to the future and not the past. Grab a new young guy with ideas about the future...take a chance or two Stern.

Nope. Borg is redoing it.

While I wouldn't personally use the word lied, he did state that Transformers would have a transforming toy and some other things that ended up not being correct.

What really bothered me with Stern was their representations that ended up not being true with regards to LE backglasses. They advertised in writing my TWD LE would have a mirrored backglass, it didn't of course, just a translight with mirrored ink.

Yes it is, that's why it's called a Lawlor shot

He's swinging the bat with weights on it and rubbing on some pine tar already.
