So ... I was not really excited about ACNC when it was announced and subsequent gameplay videos of it didn't really change my opinion. I waited in line and got a short game in on it at this year's NW Show, but really couldn't hear it very well and walked away thinking "meh".
Consequently, it has not even made my top 15 wishlist. Until this past week that is. I finally got a chance to put in a bunch of lunchtime games over the past week at my favorite local pinball bar, and ... HOLY CRAP this game is SO COOL! I love the artwork, the screen graphics, the lighting, the audio, the code, the gameplay, and just the whole damn vibe it exudes! Spooky has really produced a fantastic game! Now I'm wondering how I could have missed this for so long? I guess there's just no substitute for getting actual time in on a game in a decent environment.
Long story not as long, I spoke to Kayte on the phone this morning and my deposit for #435 is now in! Looking forward to playing this baby at home in early 2020!
