Quoted from KevInBuffalo:
Nick and I reviewed Alien in our latest talk show/podcast episode. Video is here, review starts at 1:02:21 if you want to skip ahead:

I watched the video. I don't care about the shots as much as Nick. I played it a few months ago at a Pinball Expo and thought it was really cool. My question is, is the machine really as broken as you guys say? I don't mind if there are software bugs that freeze the game, etc. Bugs will be worked out with updates. But you guys made it seem like the physical pinball machine itself was broken. That major parts will break pretty quickly. That the hardware of the machine itself is half-baked.
Should I cancel my pre order? I've got it through Coin Taker as well, and I spent extra for the LE. Melissa told me they'd be collecting the balance in early September. Should I back out while I can? I saw Nick call it an expensive night light. No one wants to spend $10k on a night light. Again, I'm okay with bugs, but if the machine itself is basically shipping in a near defective state, that's a problem.
