This is the same crap the happens when Dialed in was going to be released. People kept saying 'i hope its isnt' or 'I hope it is' etc etc.
Then when it is revealed people where nothing but disappointing by the theme. Yes it was JJPs fault but I am not sure why people put so much value on theme. Each to their own on that.
Then a year later the machine fucking kicks so much ass. It is reliable. It is fun. The rules are insanely good and it was RELEASED WITH COMPLETE SOFTWARE.
Does that not mean anything to some people?
Batman is 1 year old and it still is incomplete.
If you wanted an LE you had to buy one without seeing it. If you wanted a Super LE you had to pretty much beg to buy one. Meanwhile JJP had the game there to play! Right after the reveal.
It's Pirates. Ok. Its based on all 5 movies. It has a LOT of stuff in there. Like all JJP games.
So stop wishing it was something else!! Because it isn't. It isn't a trick. It's Pirates. It's pirates! I wish they would just say it was pirates to get all of the unnecessary chatter about the theme out of the way early so people can actually concentrate on the pinball machine behind the theme when its revealed.
Just enjoy the reveal for what it is. If you don't like the theme then get all your disappointment out of the way early, trust me you will be a lot happier!
