Quoted from rai:
Most of the videos are not unbiased like Zach saying not one bad word about it. Really not one bad thing? It’s almost like he’s trying to sell us the game.
I think the game does look great but I’d like to hear an unbiased review. I understand this was a first impression video not a review. So I’m going to play it myself before sinking $10K for a LE
Eric himself said in the Super Awesome Pinball Podcast the game can be challenging to shoot, and also that he wanted some things in the game, had to scale back a bit. That's pretty unbiased, and from the designer himself.
Delt and I had pretty leveled thoughts on Wednesday, and I know we're both in on a game. Well me, down the road.
No game is perfect, but THIS is ideal.
That interview is really enjoyable, and worth a listen by the way. Eric discussing those roll over piano keys, that aren't mechanical switches, sounds amazing, and the little audio design touches, truly inspiring stuff!
Quoted from kermit24:
On my game it goes to the lock unassisted a smaller percentage of the time, most of the time you need to use the flipper up there. I bet how often this happens depends on the pitch of the game. I am at 7.4.
Did JJP suggest a certain pitch in documentation? I kept wondering the other day....
Sometimes it's fun to ride a wave of excitement! It's genuinely rare in this hobby, and fortunately R&M, Hot Wheels, TMNT, Avengers, and now GnR have all had a nice first week of upbeat energy!
I maintain that energy to the very moment I played all of those games, and then at that point, after a few games, and then some reflection, you see where things fall out.
Until then, why not ride the fun wave? What else do we have to be excited about, in general, and as pinheads?
