That would be 2AM...

I guess I miss out.

#26 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Come on bro I know they rage in Dusseldorf! Just take a nap beforehand.

Isn't that pic here from the Willy Wonka Remake?

No "rage" here...

Quoted from screaminr:

I've got to get up by 10 a.m. we're all pushing it here in other time zones

Do you have no children or how are you allowed to sleep that long?

#32 1 year ago
Quoted from screaminr:

No I have no kids I get up at 5:30 everyday for work and I stay up too late on pinside so Saturday is my sleep in day

Sounds fair!

#34 1 year ago
Quoted from SheriffBarclay:

It's pretty mind-boggling there have been zero leaks.

Zero? XD

Since how many years ago do we knwo this game is coming?

#35 1 year ago

Just checked if it's really not just me,... it isn't. Seems to be the whole Country...

You can't buy Willy Wonka new on DVD (but it exists at least) and it isn't available at all on BluRay, that's how popular the movie is around here.

And no, I'm not poo-pooing over the game. Looking Forward to it, only not as much as most else here.

But yeah, if I can I stay up till 2Am to watch the reveal.

Quoted from RipleYYY:

as after waking up early all the week to go to work, tomorrow is early again for a 400 km ride to Tréport in FRANCE, and ... see/play the new JJP in real !!! (but not only of course)

What?! Uh...

If I pack my bags now I can still make it there.

#52 1 year ago

Srsly, how can they give it a 6.0 if the movie is great and just the Audio (IT'S OLD) sucks and the DVD has no extras.

#60 1 year ago

Is there a Thread missing? - Listened to the latest Podcast "thing". He's kinda overdoing it, I'm allready getting annoyed.

If this game doesn't cook dinner, walk my dogs and whatnot I can only be diappointed.

#79 1 year ago

It's 2AM. I actually stayed awake, so do something.

#85 1 year ago

It was all a complete hoax by Kaneda!

#152 1 year ago

It still looks like a pinball game...

I should have expected that.

#236 1 year ago
Quoted from usandthem:

So, when Kaneda spouted off about it not being like anything you've ever seen before and blowing everything away for essentially all of eternity, what exactly did he mean by that?

Only Pinball game riding in a Dodge Demon?

Game looks nice. JJP is definately not cheapskating and I wish Stern would pack as much cool stuff in their games. But without any relation to the license Wonka seems less interresting than Dialed In to me.

#255 1 year ago

"You'll never want to play any other game ever again!" - K

Yeah, right... -_-;

I think everyone set expecrations so high (10.000 Viewers!!!) this game can't possibly deliver.

#266 1 year ago

Standard model only has the title on the cab and backglass an no pic of Gene Wilder whatsoever?!

#293 1 year ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

Didn’t JJP say they’d never ship games missing features??? I seem to remember that from years ago

No, they said:
Features that change gameplay.

The Ball lock feature is still there... Kinda... It's just software.

#322 1 year ago

Allow me an uneducated synopsis:

Willy Wonka is a game as great as Dialed In! but it's a license K likes, so it is the best game evarr and the resurgence of the "a dark day for Stern" thread (also featured by Special When Lit) since this will change EVERYTHING forever to come (while I see 'just' JJP5)!!!

Is this about right?

#332 1 year ago
Quoted from singapore_pin:

Wonka standard and bksor are the same price. For your own good please decide when you are sober!
Anybody please paste here the “you lose/good day sir” meme

Stern entry level Pro ist still 2000$ below.

#343 1 year ago

Another statement pops to mind...

"One couldn't find anything to criticize in this game"

I think we have proven the opposite.

- Again: I'm sure the game shoots great. I just hate all the hype media (wich was not only K) and myself for remotely believing this BS at the moment.

#360 1 year ago
Quoted from singapore_pin:

Talking about the premium. You can’t compare a stern pro with a jjp. That’s blasphemy.
However, thanks for pointing out. Will edit my previous post

In direct comparison a Stern Premium falls flat featurewise, noone denies that.
But the entry level tier is important for location gameplay and people who want a new game but don't want afford a premium pricetag.

#572 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

It just shows how eager people are to believe anything. It was 100% marketing from the start... but it was what people WANTED to hear as well.. that’s the formula for easy buyin.
The fact people look to these folks as beacons still blows my mind.
They should be setting up a mega church and start cashing in... because clearly there are many ready to buy anything they say.

Yes and no.
By way overhyping it he game can't even come close to deliver on all of that.

#577 1 year ago

Now that I've slept over it:

The hype couldn't ever live up (as estimated), game looks fun.
Not fun enough for me to get over that license (I'd prefer Dialed In!).

Yes, JJP packs their playfield and Sterns look bare.
But could we plz get something more in the middleground (like AP)?
I mean 7 or 8 magnets in Willy Wonka?

1) Stern needs a competitor in the Pro price range as well.

2) JJP needs to broaden their audience themewise as well. This is basically just JJP5, wich is a crossover between WoZ and DI.

Seeing all this stuff, "The incredible Machine" seems to be the ideal license for Pat Lawlor.
Or "Lego - Great Ball Contraption" (this is a thing, google it).
