Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Just a reminder, the stream starts today at 3pm central time. I'm looking forward to seeing the new mech in action and also how the code has developed over the past month.

Stream at 3pm where? Is it video?

Twitch. I'm not sure about the channel name but JJP will likely post the link on their Facebook page.

Quoted from solarvalue:

Has this been confirmed somewhere? They haven't streamed for several weeks.

Time for them to re-sell this game to people.

In light of all of this perhaps a little humour

JJP: We are going to screw you over this much
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Customer backlash

JJP: Fine... we'll screw you over this much
<------------------------------------------------------->

Customers rejoice

I hope they have tweaked things back up and they will surprise buyers in the stream.

To this day, I'm still devastated that there is no boss gopher under my NGG spinny disc. I'm on my 3rd comfort dog.

Ill try to post the link here when and if they go live. It was mentioned in the update video by eric they planned to stream today. However a lot has happened since that video.

Im actually kind of hoping they dont stream today. And still remain silent because that would mean our(Customers) revolt to the decision has ruffled some feathers and they are back at the drawing board trying to come up with a different answer. If they do stream today its most likely going to mean this decision is more final than we want it to be.

Yeah me too, I want my big ass gopher!

#663 2 years ago

Excited to watch the Live video! I am still in on this game!
Pinball is awesome!

Quoted from thewool:

Eric needs to look at the definition of the word 'tweak', as the mech change clearly isn't one and shouldn't be sold as such.

Or, whoever authored that script, including the half-ass attempt at humor at the 0:06 mark, needs to look at the definition of "tweak".

Here's what Tweek looks like........

Well, it’s a little easier to swallow when the NIB machine costs $2500.

Customer-

" Your restaurant has quickly gained a reputation as being the best around with no compromise to quality and quantity and the last time we ate here, the food was magnificent! I'd like to order the $100 prime rib and lobster with a ceasar salad and baked potato."

Waiter-

"Thank you, and excellent choice! However that plate now comes with fish sticks, cole slaw, and fries instead of lobster, salad, and baked potato. We have not raised the price though so we are sure you will be most satisfied!"

Customer-

" Just bring me the food, would ya."

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

It's the same trick you used to do to your parents:

Vid: Dad, can I borrow $2000 to buy a Dacia?
Dad: $2000 ????? You are fncking crazy if you think I have that kind of money to lend you!!!!!
V: Hmmm, OK, can I borrow $100?
D: Yes, that seems much more sane.

It’s a little more like ordering lobster, filet mignon with a Caesar salad and potato and the waiter saying “it’s now lobster and sirloin with a Caesar salad and potato.

It’s mostly the same game.

I think JJP needs to hire you to produce their next 'game tweak/update' video.

It’s mostly the same game.

Actually, it's more like ordering a porterhouse and some truffle garlic mashed potatoes, and the waiter returns and starts comparing everything to cars.

Will it spin? Will it spin clockwise or counter clockwise. The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last!

The disc is stationary.....but the machine spins around.

28 minutes to me sitting in the parking lot at work watching a live stream! Well I guess there is a first for everything!!

Lame. They aren't even addressing the 900 lbs elephant in the room. Just keep going, nothing to see here.

Lame.

Lame.

Exactomundo. How can that pizza look so ugly, even though it would be "directly from the movie"?

#693 2 years ago

You don't know what you got till it's gone. Big difference in game look and play!! (also perceived value)

#694 2 years ago

It's a beautiful machine. I'm just not a fan of the single spinning disk at all.

#695 2 years ago

The new spinning disk is well, a spinning disk. The effect works but isn't as random or as large of as an effect as the 3x disk. No longer seeing the chest open and close is a bummer too as in a stationary position it looked better closed.

I'll watch more of the video later once it's archived but as of now I'm leaning towards buying a Dialed In LE instead.

It's gorgeous. The LCD is off the charts. Game will still be really good.

The spinning disc is worthless and front and center.

They basically said they have to get the games out the door and I get that too.

Unfortunately, I'm gonna have to drop out of CE.

Feels like a morgue on the twitch feed. Feel bad for those guys.

Quoted from Sinestro:

Lame.

Eric addressed it. To paraphrase:
-
This is the FINAL design. It will not change, except for tweaking the artwork to make the colors match.

They could not get the original mech to work right. They tried their best and had plenty of feedback from 20 games out in the field. It has nothing to do with cost or code, it was simply a matter of reliability as they've said before. Nobody is more disappointed than Eric. The game is still fun.
-

So that's it gang. Perhaps if people continue to bombard them with questions/abuse/pleading/anger/regret the answer will change but I would say that's simply not going to happen. So, since nobody is actually out any money on this, it might be time for everybody to move on and consider the game's merits as it currently sits.

#700 2 years ago

At least the spinning disc on Twister has variable speeds and a magnet on it.

Three steps forward and five steps back....
