Quoted from jimwe5t:
An unnamed podcasters argument is: GNR is a concert in a box, so who cares it shoots like a slow moving dog and has no mechs. He says its a different flavor of pinball on a 27” regular LCD screen, to be consumed at the insane concert in a box price of: $13,500.00!!!
Amazon sells a GNR concert in a box for $20 in Blu-ray, that plays on a 65 inch or bigger OLED screen, coupled to a high end sound system that blows away GNR’s comparatively weak stereo system. All for $20 you get a far better concert experience!!!
Godzilla has mechs galore and gives us real pinball players exciting pinball experiences. Not a GNR concert in a box with questionable geometry, that after playing the 50th time becomes so monotonous with no real mechs that owners want to get rid of it. Smart people are starting to sell them off and buy Godzilla. That should tell us something about how long a “concert in a box” experience will last in the home. Best advice: sell GNR, buy Godzilla and spend $20 for a GNR concert for a far better experience and own both for far less money!!!
Although I can see your points, I think the main thing you don’t get is GNR is a scoring based game versus a progression game. At least at this point, because that is what the code is all about. It’s about scoring and building jackpots. No one is playing GNR to get through the album modes. I softly say “fuck” to myself every time I start a god damn Slash Solo!
There hasn’t been a pin that is based almost entirely on scoring since what? System 11’s? Everything today plays like a video game. Some like it and some obviously don’t’.
I will at least wait until code matures before I choose to sell it. I think GNR is a “wide game” right now instead of a deep game (I stole that term from someone today), but that doesn’t mean a couple of code updates couldn’t make this into something epic!
That said GZ is the only game that has crossed my mind about trading it for.
