Karl has in my opinion the best camera/feed setups in pinball. Even got the mini screen up so you could really see how they're using it clearly, lots of helpful instructions, I really like the concept.
Quoted from Gasoline:
People were commenting that the sound seems tweaked in a positive way since the reveal (less casino sounding, more sound clip integration). Honestly, it would be hard for me to call out any major sound differences since the reveal but the sound felt different.
I'll be honest: I don't care for the sound package. It's too whizzy chirp chirp bleep bloop bright and dingy for me. I know this kind of thing is totally subjective, and it fits the theme, and it's just my personal taste, but I could never own this game after listening to it today, it would drive me nuts.
Quoted from Gasoline:
Code still seemed to be lacking significant synch between voice/vids and adding new call outs for the most part. Still has the Grandpa Joe voice actor making most of the commentary.
Unless there's some licensing problem or something I can't imagine JJP isn't going to deliver a totally polished game. I still think it's crazy to buy a game on potential, instead of after the code feels good and you've played some good games on it, from any company. But if you like it now I'm sure it will just get better. When have they ever not delivered on code? Stern has a mixed track record, that's just being honest right? But JJP has no badly coded or incomplete feeling games.
JJP has two problems right now imo:
1. They don't wait to announce until they're ready to ship games, and lose all this momentum; people are fickle and impulsive and get hyped up and deflated, it's just human nature. Why not build them and then announce it? It wasn't even a real secret before the reveal right? So just wait until you're ready to get games into hands, get those wallets open.
2. I hope whatever problem there is on the POTC playfields is a solved issue. Is the clear coat not being left to cure long enough because they're trying to get games out? They can't do another game with that chipping or people are gonna freak out.
It's an issue on TNA too, and mine is bubbled up around the star posts, just not chipped. Whatever is up, clear coat formulas or bad plastics or over tightening or not enough cure time or whatever, people get mad when their playfields chip where the ball isn't even touching.
