    So What Is The Holy Grail Now?

    Since the license lose of Williams/Bally there is no chance of getting Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure which many considered to be the holy grail (after Addams Family surprisingly got a TPA release).

    So what could people consider to be the holy grail table that FarSight could bring to TPA now.....

    The Lord of the Rings
    The Simpsons Pinball Party
    Tron
    Spider-Man


    ???

    LotR: Hard.
    TSPP: Disney. No chance.
    Tron: Disney. No chance unless Stern gets a Vault for this.
    Spider-Man: Comics have a better chance than Toby McGuire. Zen has a digital table, though, so that's conflicting.

    LOTR obviously.

    But would also love the new Sterns. Star wars, met, iron man, and many others.

    There was no chance of getting WMS Indy even before the license loss, because of Disney. So if we're still going to pretend that Indy was actually attainable, then technically all of the Disney DE/Sega/Sterns are still on the table.

    So if we're counting Disney stuff, it's TSPP.
    Not counting Disney stuff, then probably LotR.
    My personal grail: FarSight getting a Capcom license.

    My two biggest wants that I believe we will never see would be Family Guy and Lord Of The Rings.
    I dig both themes. Family Guy is super funny with a surprisingly fun mini playfield. I usually hate mini playfields.
    LotR is another great theme. A super deep pin with really fun shots. I wish the art was better, but I can overlook it on a pin with such wonderful theme integration.

    I think the holy grail would be just getting the Williams license back in general

    For licensed tables I would like to see Jurassic Park(probably no chance) and Tales from the Crypt. Unlicensed tables I am hoping Abra Ca Dabra(EM) along with a ton of other EM's(World Fair, Cross Town, Bank Shot and Royal Flush etc.), bunch of Stern Electronics' tables I would love to see in TPA in Quicksilver, Seawitch, Catacomb and Star Gazer(It's like Farsight forgot about this line after Flight 2000), Data East Time Machine and Laser War, Game Plan tables Andromeda and Cyclopes, finally, for Gottlieb I would like to see Joker Poker, Spirit, Robo-War, Alien Star, and Sinbad.

    One current Stern table I would like to see show up when Farsight figures out how to do it is Batman 66.

    I'd love to see more of the rock themed Sterns. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Kiss, Elvis. I'd also be happy with Tommy or G&R if it's easier to port the older Data East tables.

    The way I see it, they should grab one of the top pinball table ratings, start at the top and pick the first table they can get the license for.

    I'd like to see Simpsons Pinball Party.
    Or Capcom's Pinball Magic and BBB.

    I don't know, Zen's Aliens table is pretty damn good and at least has the full voice of the cast. But yes, please do JJP so I can play Dialed In to my heart's content.

    Dialed In might not happen until the tech gets more advanced for games like this.

    But that's on my short list as well. It's that good.

    Zen Pinball games are for fun, TPA is for learning.

    Well, things have been rather dull around TPA since the 30th of June I mean the tables we have are still fun but we got crickets now...

    Looking at the younger companies like JJP, and that other one from my home state (is it Spooky?)...I am not sure why they would want to go digital, but that would be awesome if Farsight could get 'em.

    And unless I missed (highly possible) something, we still don't really know what Scientific had in mind by pulling the licensing from FarSight.

    Big Buck Hunter and Whoa Nellie! are currently in the hands of Beta testers. Dunno what the projected release timeline is and I'm not even going to put out a guess, but there will be kinda exciting things coming soon!

    Yep, it's been mighty dull on the TPA front as of late. I'm hoping for a bunch of new table announcements before too long.
    As for Scientific, I think that you have to follow the money there to figure out what's going on. I'm not sharp enough to be able to do that, unfortunately.
    Who says you can't take it with you?

    Personally, I wouldn't mind older tables from the '70's and '80's. But I know the unfortunate reality is that they tend not to sell well.

    One Holy Grail might be to buy someone's Nintendo Network ID if they managed to purchase the full Pinball Arcade for the Switch from the eShop in the few hours before it was pulled (provided it remains full instead of being cancelled and the purchase price being refunded by Nintendo).
