First, thanks for your vote!
Quoted from Tuna_Delight:
1) You guys are obviously HUGE Dialed In fans, but to say that it "crushes all other games" as far as lighting effects seems a bit exaggerated. DI's lighting is very nice, but my TWIPY vote easily goes to a more deserving TNA in this category.
2) Aerosmith for best toys/gimmicks (the toybox)? Meh. I think the hyperdrive loop feature in SW is much cooler and unique! (Well, at least you didn't vote for DI again in this category though.)
For #1, TNA does have nice lighting and should be commended. But have you spent much time with DI, especially the latest code? It's better. It simply does more and has more of an effect. It's tied in nicely to the presentation of the game. Lighting is an area where DI really shines.
For #2, the hyperloop is kinda cool, ball goes around the playfield fast. For me, the toybox edges that out with the fact that it opens, ball flies through the air, then lands in it, and closes. Taking it one step further, it's a great multiball when potentially 6 balls come flying out (the presentation with the sounds and lighting effects help to make it something special). To me, that's just "more" than what the hyperloop does.
We may have to agree to disagree
