strongly feel it's gonna be Cactus Canyon for 2018 after a conversation I had when selling mine earlier this year with a certain someone, but who knows. It's gonna be magic whatever game it turns out to be. Pure freeeeaking magic.
My bets are still very much on Cactus Canyon. I've met so many who think they have some insider secret including the one who bought my original Cactus Canyon last year... so I really don't believe anyone anymore... but as a business move I would think Cactus Canyon would be the smartest option to release first since less people own the original which would make it potentially a better selling machine.
Fingers super tightly crossed it's Cactus Canyon. Been there and done that on Monster Bash and personally feel Cactus Canyon is so much more fun as a game overall... and this is coming from a horror maniac .
However, on a bigger/slightly more controversial topic, I am kinda sad about the remake world anyways. With all the gaming talent out there, and the resources to make new ideas come to life, wouldn't it be far more exciting to see a slew of brand new tables or previously cancelled games getting the funding to come back to life? I respect (and have also purchased) these remakes, but right after each sale my satisfaction level really wasn't there. Plus I've always felt it's kinda shattered the collectors market and given owners who searched high and low for the originals this sense of urgency to sell before the value drops, rather than looking at those games and feeling amazing about them. When companies like Spooky Pinball attempt to try new things/sometimes failing/sometimes blowing us away I've felt so much more excited about those purchases... It's just a remake world these days in entertainment as a whole, and I'm just hoping to see a new generation of talent pushing the envelope on new ideas.
