Stern Pinball's Ghostbusters Pro (V1.05) Gameplay

This past Thursday Stern Pinball released a new revision to Ghostbusters. This new update included some balance updates, new speech that also includes a "Family Mode" and some new features like the "River of Slime hurry up shot" Sadly I wasn't able to show off much of the game because of just how hard the one my friend Dave has setup. I've seen a lot of people complain about the metal wire ramps they put into the game and it's something I also noticed on the machine I played at Pioneer's Lounge. When the ball hits the edge of the metal on the ramp, it won't deflect, but it'll loop around going down the left or right drain. Most of the time I'm not quick enough to nudge the table, but I've had the game promptly drain for all three turns with this. It's something I'll have to check message boards to see if other people are complaining about but until then it just further adds to the challenge of the game.

Also, I was a special guest on the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast! Dustin and I talked a lot about Japanese arcade games, Japanese arcades and the main topic, Initial D. Dustin was able to rescue an original Initial D (Stage 1) machine from being scrapped and he talks about his journey trying to fix it with getting everything to properly work. Make sure you check it out!

Stern Pinball's Ghostbusters Pro (V1.04)

Hey folks! At the Allentown Pinfest my good friend Dave got himself a Game of Thrones Pro and a brand new Ghostbusters Pro pinball machine! Since he wanted some help trying to setup the new Spike system on Game of Thrones with an update I decided to try my hand with Ghostbusters 1.04 code that fixed some of the game braking bugs that where found early on.

The game is super fast and challenging, and ton of fun. Ernie Hudson's calls are great and they even have it set like FunHouse where he'll give each player a nickname and he'll stick through it through the whole game. (Kid, Rookie, etc)

As always whenever Stern Pinball updates the game with new rules and features we'll be sure to share it with you! Hopefully next time, I'll get a better game and show off more of the modes. ;)
