Quoted from brerspidur:
I'm #52 and still no word.
Your first contact will be from Squirrel asking if you want a butter cab or not. I’m kind of surprised you haven’t gotten that one yet.
I think you guys are getting nervous prematurely.
When I received ACNC #14, it was a shell of what it eventually became. They brought Bowen in and really made it into a great game.
If the animation guy isn’t working out, they will replace him. There should be no doubt that Spooky wants this to be the best it can possibly be. But Spooky isn’t Stern and things move at a slower pace than we would like sometimes.
I believe I’ve heard them say they have access to the whole movie - everything just has to be run through the license holder to make sure they stay true to the movie - ie no animations of Michael balancing on top of a pinball or something stupid.
It’s going to be awesome - just be patient. In my experience Spooky always comes through.
Quoted from fsumassey:
I guess I might be confused. I thought the first 50 were going to friends and family. Starting at 51 would go to the public. I know #52 is in the forums here somewhere and he said he hasn't been asked for butter or not.
First 50 Halloween + first 50 Ultraman go to friends and family. They won’t hit that until next week.
Quoted from zaphX:
Yeah I should be clear - movie clips are not important to me but high quality animations are.
I have obviously been spoiled by the other games in my collection on this.
Whaaaat? GnR would not be near as good without the concert footage. Granted the animations are awesome too, but the footage is part of what amps the adrenaline!
Quoted from ViperVS:
Concert footage is the one thing that prevents me from ever buying one. I don't want to see middle aged Axel videos. Why couldn't they use 90's stuff? That is how we remember them...
Because using 90's footage would look ragtag with low video quality (and there would be no footage for Chinese Democracy songs).
The concert footage in the pin doesn't focus on Axl - there's a lot of shifting around to show the other band members, crowd, video wall, etc. It's very well done.
Don't let the concert footage be the *one* thing preventing you from buying one - it's a great game. But don't just take my word for it, ask Spooky Charlie what he thinks about it!
