Quoted from wesman:
Man...that was a disappointing stream.
CE foul-ups, game orders backed up being shipped, playfields seemingly pooling, and a really underwhelming fairly barren SE being streamed have really taken the wind out of the sails for me, for this game.
These streams need to cap off at 30-60 minutes. The energy just fizzles, and this one in particular seemed really low energy.
The white hotrails lose so much via no color changing, and no spotlights, the entire concert atmosphere seems more like a wet thud than a hard rock smash that the LE brings.
Game seems stripped to near Stern Pro levels, though the guys streaming incessantly said otherwise, and how little of a difference there was, over and over and over again. Yeesh. Seriously guys?
Even though I really don't like the upper playfield much, removing it and the bass and guitar necks AND the spotlights and color hotrails remove nearly all of the underglass excitement.
If JJP was stripping so much, they clearly could have put more than that weird empty, raptor Stern type plastics up there along with Axl.
Wonka SE is a far, far fuller game, sadly.
As you haven’t played it a suppose that’s your opinion. I actually surprisingly found the SE was rather well done and worthy of its price point. Do love the LE package myself but don’t have much bad to say about the SE or those considering it. As for the length and quality of the stream. It’s Pinball! We’re you expecting a theatrical performance? Lol. They do this for Fun to provide what everyone was asking for not an Emmy. Watch for 4 minutes or 40 that’s up to you. I sincerely appreciate players taking the time and cost out of their day to provide evaluation content. I’ll catch a Circus if I want to be Entertained. Watching pinball is not for everyone but it Does help assess a viable major purchase.
