It's really rewarding to come in here and see all these people jacked about the game.
It's a fast game. It's a live game. You know, there are good shots. It's always an ever-changing game.
We very much appreciate the enthusiasts that are here, their appreciation for our games. We need them.
We're at the Pinball Expo, and we're having a tournament and a party with Transformers, our new pinball machine that George Gomez and his team, Lonnie Ropp, et al Designed. It is great. George has done a wonderful job and it is truly a great title for pinball.
I mean, I never really know. I always think, "Are they going to like it? Are they going to like it?" People are into it. People are loving it.
Everything is going well. The worst problem we could possibly have is there are too many people who want to compete. We're going to run out of time. Oh my God.
I travelled hundreds of miles from Jackson, Michigan. We've been practicing in our Prison City Pinball League. Now we're here to throw down on some Transformers.
We had the whole design team sitting at the table. We signed autographs for a couple of hours. I couldn't have asked for a better reception.
I like the game.
It's an awesome game.
It was really fun.
They loved the game, absolutely loved the game, and they should. It's really an excellent game. I'm a little bit of a judge and I'm sure this is a great game.
Oh, it's an awesome game. There are really good shots, fast game play.
Game play is excellent.
Before today, it was just a dream. Now it's reality.
People are loving it. It is like blowing people's mind.
I like all the shots.
The shots are good. There's a lot to choose from.
It has a lot of features.
It's a very fast game. Very fast.
You don't have a lot of nerfing around.
It's complicated and it's hard just to get everything lit. And it requires practice, but it's worth it.I like hitting the balls where the bumblebee is.
Pop bumpers are close. There are lots of good ramps. The ramp was cool.
The ramp with Optimus Prime, I thought it was cool. He lifts up and it hits at him.
Biggest reaction is how in your face it is. Shooting one of the autobot toys, it's just phenomenal. There's a lot of the game sort of fighting back at you, which I think fits really well with the Transformer theme.<.p>
I tell you. We hit one with the Transformers. Takes good advantage of the license.
I worked on it a little bit. I was there to make sure Transformer fans would like it.
A lot of this crowd grew up with the Transformers. They love the Transformers. They know everything about them. We've got all kinds of inside stuff in the game that if you're a Transformers fan, you totally relate to.
I hid a lot of quotes from the old '80s movie, and took it from the old show and stuff like that, so.
I like how you could have a Deceptacon or you could be an Autobot.
Autobot * 10!
Good guys always win.
I'm a Deceptacon and my family's an Autobot, so.
Deceptacon * 2
You have to love the Deceptacon. Deceptacons just look cooler.
I like being the bad guy.
Because they're way cooler than the Autobots. I mean what would you rather be, a jet fighter or a truck? You know.
There are some great multi-ball modes.
My favourite part of the game. To get a multi-ball.
Probably the multi-balls, I like those.
Coolest feature, I would say everything. Yeah, everything.
Everybody's got to play this game. It is awesome.
Go out and play Transformers. It's an awesome game.
It tops all the starting games currently released.
The Gomez designs are always great. I always like his designs.
I hope it becomes a classic. People have come up to me tonight. They're talking to me about games I did 15 years ago, right? I hope that in 15 years people are talking to me about Transformers.
I can't wait to get ours.
I love Stern Pinball.
I love pinball.
I just want to thank Gary for keeping the game going.
Look forward to the future of pinball for sure.
We are continuing to make pinball machines, three or four new models a year, and we're just going to keep doing it because we have to.
Go Gary Stern.
At 20 minutes before 8:00, Central time, Professor Farrell of the Mt. Jennings Observatory, Chicago, Illinois, reports observing several explosions of incandescent gas occurring at regular intervals on the planet Mars. The spectroscope indicates the gas to be hydrogen and moving towards the Earth with enormous velocity. Professor Pierson of the Observatory at Princeton confirms Farrell's observation and describes...
