Well this is going to be an odd post... a post about JPOP in the JPOP thread.
Have we heard anything new about RAZA or AIW let alone anything about John recently? Last I read he was in Canada tending to a sick family member. Since then I haven't read a thing about either the remaining games nor about what's being done to produce them. Also haven't read anything about refunds or possible/pending/ongoing legal actions.
Most of us may assume that if these games had a chance in hell of being made that someone like AP was going to do it. It appears that ship has not only sailed--it's way, way out at sea now. Seems the MG games getting released provided a little relief but also a bit of a smokescreen for the remaining unfulfilled customers.
I'm in this for two reasons: 1) I was a potential customer that would have bought an AIW spot when offered if only there had been more information. 2) Like most people, it offends me when good people get wronged and justice is flaunted. I want to see justice done for those with money in the games. Is that unreasonable? Like good citizens, we all want to see justice done when something obviously "wrong" happens to good people. Happens everywhere--even outside of pinball.
At this point, how many people think there's a realistic chance that RAZA or AIW will ever be made? Seems the MG thing plus a lot of activity in 2017 with new pinball companies and games being announced have diverted people's attention from John and his responsibility.
I'm hoping there's a whole lot more progress on this over the next several months to a year and we're not still talking about unrelated subjects in this thread.
