Quoted from remf:
I finally have a chance to get a new machine, but I can’t seem to decide which one to get. Not considering the theme, which one do you enjoy playing the most?
So I just committed to my first NIB today after buying around a dozen other used games in my past. Also hool10, I hope the TX project is working out. I used to LOVE doing business trips down there!
I'm going with TMNT Pro (and I still haven't played it), but you absolutely can't go wrong with IMDN. For me personally, IMDN is a "total package" Pro. I wouldn't add anything to the game as far as mods are concerned. To those that have the Prem/LE, hats off to them, especially if they love it. I've played 3 Pros and loved every moment on each. But I like precisely 1.5 Maiden songs that are in the game, so I get tired of the music (FFS I wish Wicker Man was in the game). I actually prefer playing IMDN on location so it's just the shots I have to worry about and the music gets drowned out. But the game shoots great, and the rules with the "breadth" instead of "depth" allows you to always have something lucrative to shoot for.
So, why am I instead opting for TMNT Pro NIB?
Simple. I have a kid, and we both love our respective eras of TMNT. If you look in the TMNT "hype" thread, I posted a pic where I have the OG 80's turtle figures in their packaging, even though it's the 2nd run of the originals. I'm making a floating shelf "topper" to go over the game with those figures, and am going to put some of my other "played" figures from my childhood (mostly Krang on his loop, and a Mouser) in the game. The theme is awesome, the code seems great at launch, the PF issues seem to be ironed out on the whole, the Pro is a solid Pro... but most importantly for my son and I, is the Coop play or the ability to play vs. as 1 turtle vs. 2 or 3. That's a major equalizer for us. We are going to love having the game's rules, and the rules even as 1-player give me the same breadth feeling that IMDN has. But we now can have those nights where we can try to destroy the game, or each other. There's a lot to go for outside of the main modes. Training, Foot 1-2-3, MB's, things to get to Cowabunga. It's a lot to work at and I'm so damn psyched to get it here.
