The WoZ got plenty of attention at SPF too - although a slightly different crowd with many more women and young girls playing. They also brought in a 75th red version to make three WoZ in the room. By Sunday I was able to walk up and play many games with little or no lines. It is a fun game, but not my style (to each his own). There is plenty that I like about it and plenty that I don't. I still just don't like the big monitor or the way it was implemented. The backbox looks more like a home brew virtual pin to me than something that comes from a manufacturer. Aside from the full screen animations I still scratch my head wondering what all of those split screen items have to do with the playfield. It is just not intuitive, pleasing to the eyes or what I would have wanted to see for the most part. I'd rather see the effort spent down on the playfield than with a display. In this age of PS4, Blu-ray and big screens in every house, they just don't have the budget to make graphics that are any more impressive than Dragon's Lair or a PS2.
Even though this game and the big monitor are not something I would buy, there are plenty who love it and I still have fun playing it. This is an exciting time for pinball with so many choices. It is nice to see someone developing a pin that looks different than the "standard" pinball to help draw in new players. As I mentioned, WOZ definitely drew a different crowd of players.
BTW I limited myself to one game on STLE, because I want to wait and play on my own. By that point the software will be a little bit more evolved. The speaker lighting and backbox flashers among other things were not enabled yet on the one at SPF. I mostly want the NIB opening to be a little more special by not playing too much before hand. Even though there was a long line all the time, I could have played before and after hours as a staff member at SPF. What I saw of the game and heard from the players only further confirmed the LE was the proper choice for me. Can't wait!
