I've wrestled with this dilemma lately.
After reading about all the pinsiders whith WOZ LE pre-orders and seeing some of JJP's updates, I really know this game will be great. It'll be full of toys and probably lots of fun... but I just can't get into the theme. What's next... It's a Wonderful Life, Gone With the Wind???
I've bought into BHZA as it was a no-brainer from a design/theme pont of view for me... my pins have to feel cool/exciting. Ruby slipper flippers and that cabinet art/trim just make me turn emerald green
Am I being too critical? Am I missing out? I know there will be strong defenders from the WOZ camp, but understand that I am not intersted in collectibility or flipping for profit. And I also understand that WOZ as a theme is a great marketing tool for JJP if he really does want to hit a wide audience, but how many of you would still put money down for a game you're pretty sure will be innovative and fun but, in the end, doesn't really excite you?
Will the standard version of WOZ be subtantially different? Can I afford to wait and see?
