Quoted from spinal:

Yes, fantastic! One thing it shows me designers today are not always paying attention to basic things like how important spectacular-sounding callouts are to the pinball experience. When you hit a jackpot and you hear BSD's "twenty million!" it just makes for a good time. It's better to have 5 callouts that make you feel like you just won the world series rather than 150 mediocre ones and BSD just nails this concept.

So true. I think that is what keeps me coming back to the B/W games. The jackpot/high scoring shots just feel so special and fun to hit. Never gets old. With the advancements in technology, I just don't get how new games have what seems like so few callouts. I would think having a bunch of great callouts would be one of the easiest things to program. Older games had more limitations but just nailed the details.

Quoted from mbaumle:

We colloquially call BSD "Love Never Dies" because my friend and I love the game so much, and never seem to lose interest playing it. Next time you see one, give The Shadow a shot too. It's similarly difficult, and also has a hideous backglass, but has a tad more going for it in the rules department.

"Also"???

Am I the only one that actually digs the BSD backglass? I think it's badass!

Nope. I love the BSD backglass. I think it looks awesome and creepy all lit up

I love the backglass too. In fact, i love everything in this pin, it's a great game and timeless masterpiece.
