The decision's been made, I'm getting a pinball!
At first, I got excited by Stern's TWD announcement and thought it would be a perfect match to get into the hobby: NIB pinball=less trouble, I am a TWD fan, there is a Stern reseller in Norway. If I go this way it will be a Pro model, since I'm definitely not putting $10.500 for an LE on my first pinball.
The first gameplay videos have popped up here and there and I got some doubts. I know that TWD has early code that is NOT representative of what the game will look like in a year. But the slow gameplay and the fact that there are only two main toys/targets makes me feel I could get bored (too) quickly.
The other option I have is a Fish Tales, restored, upgraded to LED for half the price. I've played this one numerous times and even though I don't particularly like the theme, I like the gameplay.
The technical/repair aspect doesn't scare me off as I own two arcade cabinets and I am used to repairs, soldering and fixing stuff.
I can't and won't have two pinball machines, so I have to stick to one... There's simply no room.
Let me know your thoughts!
