Quoted from emkay:

My wife walked away, shrugged and said "Maybe I just don't like widebody machines..." Which sucks, because I'd like an Embryon and at least one of Heighway's offerings.
I too would like to play it with the flippers jacked to the 9's. The first AMH I played was in a personal collection with the flippers cranked the whole way up and I was blown away by it. I've played a half dozen different AMH since then but none were nearly as impressive. It's probably more wear and tear though so I could understand why one wouldn't be set up that way on location.

The Twitch stream of a Hobbit about 2 hours ago said otherwise (compared to a lot of the reports). It looked like it was playing very quickly, and the slingshots looked absolutely nuclear ... pf was raked at a considerable angle by the look of it too. It really did look VERY fast.

PF visibility wasn't the best as they hadn't yet found a way to change the relevant webcam brightness / contrast and highlights were blown out, as they were streaming on a Mac. You can definitely see how much faster it is than some of the other ones we've seen though, and how fast the ball was shooting off the slingshots. It certainly wasn't struggling to get up the ramps. Multiball modes looked manic.

If you have concerns about the table being slow, I'd say they're irrelevant subject to setup of the game.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

Looks cool! But is it weird that a lot of sounds, animations, call outs, and maybe even rules aren't in the game despite being completed?

Just waiting on the software framework.
