Disclaimer: I'm deciding to get Houdini or waiting until Chicago Expo for my next pin purchase.
I'm going to wait it out till the end of the year to see what all comes out, especially from Deeproot.
I'm going to base my decisions on game play. I'm not crazy about Houdini, but I like that it exists and there is a new player. I haven't played any of the other games. I would never buy anything without playing it. The only theme I don't care for is Superman 78, but if it was amazing, I might buy it.
I'm waiting it out see what comes out this year, and maybe purchase next year. A lot of new titles and with the saturation of games I don't think there will be any problem finding one in the future new or huo.
Quoted from ZenTron:
Since Steve Ritchie designed Atari Superman one would assume he’d design ‘78.
That sounds great, but with Black Knight just being released, we will not see another game from him for 15+ months. He even stated on Coast 2 Coast pinball podcast that he has his next title, but has not started on the game.
