New TRON Pinball machine!

on Wednesday, April, 27, 2011 2:49 PM
Some details are here:

http://arcadeheroes.com/2011/04/27/stern-confirms-tron-pinball/

I've been following this for a while, not sure yet if it will incorporate elements from the first Tron or if they will focus more on Legacy but it means that Tron will be making it's way back to arcades after a long hiatus. I'm excited, I may get one for my own arcade unless they really screw the game up.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Sweet, I love Stern's pinball games. A local restaurant has their Dark Knight pinball game and it's freaking awesome. Also a pretty big fan of their Roller Coaster Tycoon game. I don't think they'll mess this up.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I'm just a little worried as a few of their most recent games such as Avatar and Rolling Stones pretty much sucked. Hopefully they do the 3D backglass on this like they did with Avatar since that was cool.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

here is what was said from Stern........

From Stern to Distributors -

"Dear Ladies & Gentlemen

As I have told many of you when we have been together, Stern Pinball
will begin production of its next model pinball machine, TRON: Legacy,
at the beginning of May. You will receive TRON in time for your pre-
summer season sales.

We have licensed this title from Disney, the maker of the $400 million
grossing holiday season movie TRON: Legacy. 60% of the gross was
outside the United States. This movie is an extension of the 1982
movie TRON and the famous video game of that time. Another TRON movie
is being planned. We have had requests from gamers, and pinball
players in particular, to make a TRON pinball machine. There is a pent
up demand for this game, and many of you have heard this from your
customers.

With TRON, we continue the design philosophy that you have told us has
been successful, that of Iron Man, Avatar and The Rolling Stones. Our
games are playing shorter and have more randomness. The great designer
Harry Williams used to say, "The ball is wild." Great players are
challenged and causal players have fun. Operators are making money.

Our TRON pinball puts the players in the middle of TRON movie and
video game action battles. This is a fast moving game. TRON has 3
flippers, including an upper flipper to shot one of the two fabulous
fast action ramps. We have not utilized a 3rd flipper in a while, and
players will enjoy it. In the center of the playfield, near the top,
there is a motorized 3 bank target assembly the player must hit and
lower, to gain access to the illuminated, motorized spinning disc,
representing TRON's Identity Disc. The spinning disc shoots the ball
randomly across and around the playfield. Ramp shots take the player
to an exciting Light Cycle multiball. The player shoots at the
miniature TRON video game to start exciting features and collect big
points.

TRON: Legacy is a visually exquisite 3D movie, and our pinball has
captured the same exquisite visual, including its 3D backglass. Music
is from movie and perfect for pinball.

This game is brought to you by the design team that gave you Iron Man
and Avatar.

We have been playing TRON, and we are really having fun.

Because this is truly a collectors and enthusiasts dream title, we
will make a TRON Limited Edition version in late June.

As soon as Disney approves the game photo, I will send you a picture
for posting.

Best regards"buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Kinda disappointing. Should've been WAY more done with lighting effects. The whole thing should UV-reactive with black lights illuminating it, and then some back lights for extra effect. I mean look at this:


If you ignore some of the more popish art, its easy to see the Tron-ish feel of it. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I'm excited for this, but no arcades nearby have any pinball other than some of the retro pinball classics, such as Gottleib tables, etc. My grandfather actually sold pinball machines in his day, and later, sold arcade machines. (Tron was at one point a bigger seller of his!) buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I'm glad someone noticed that the pinball machine was even out there, being a pinball fanatic myself.

Stern has announced debut tournaments...
http://sternpinball.com/Community/Blogs/news/tron-pinball-launch-party.aspx

It will be at the Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show at the Seattle Center June 3.5 and also at the California Extreme pinball show. Stern would be making a big mistake not to market it now with more potential buyers than anywhere else, and the Pacific Pinball Expo in September is WAAAAY too late, especially with Jersey Jack's upcoming Wizard Of Oz debut machine.

As for myself, it looks like it could compare with Spider-Man (probably the best of the recent Stern machines. We'll see in the next fortnight...buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Programming is a lot like pinball, actually. The reward for doing it well is the opportunity to do it again.

Hooray for Big Bang Bar! Where did you spot that table? I've only ever seen two, one in Minnesota (SS Billiards in Hopkins) and a collector's house in Redmond.

TRON.dll: Nice to meet a fellow pinhead here! Remember when pinball and The Grid were totally separate entities?

I understand the LE version will have the EL wiring as all the common TRON colors can be represented. Perhaps it requires more hardware support then they have time for, or perhaps it's Gary Stern being a cheapskate again. That'll have to stop if they want Steve Ritchie to stay on!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

So if anybody's interested, tonight the TRON Pinball Debut tournament happens at Flynn's, err, Dorky's in Tacoma. Last night's was in six places around the USA. I wish they would choose someplace else other than the Seattle Waterfront Arcade for these debut tourneys, because man does that place suck!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online
