Quoted from dts:
Look at your own thread, there are problems. One operator over there is ready to blow his remake up. All machines need adjustments. The early remakes will likely need more than later ones, like the original. What I’m hearing from owners of both is that the remake feels much cheaper, and doesn’t have the same atmosphere.
I think this is a fair comment. To have anyone say anything negative about the new one is sacrilege, and an actual Op, w over 100 games, 10 years in the threads, is being called out by a child response that owns 2 games, just ignoring reality over there.
In the interest of trying to be civil about the whole thing, I believe HW Alien owners should be allowed to express themselves here. Believe it or not, it is very relevant to what PB owners are experienceing on that "side".
Not seeing many HW posts in the PB thread (I did have to downvote the absolute childish statement, attacking an Op), so maybe healthy if it is reciprocal to some extent. It's Pinside, so doesn't really matter.
Correct - Even the late builds were (are) more expensive, and required tweaking to get them playing correctly. Any in the US came from across the pond, and would guess none of those would hit a location not because of reliability, but rather the rarety of the game. No hidden agendas.
Seeing the games side by side just sort of presents that the machines are indeed different....
