Quoted from CrazyLevi:
They dragged it to a show for two days. They didn't put it in some dive bar for a month to test earnings, reliability, and player reactions which is what Rare was blathering about as if that was even possible to do in 2020 without ruining yourself.
And not sure if you noticed or not but that little mini-reveal was an EXACT example of why you can't put a half-baked proto "on test" anymore.
It wasn't a reveal, not even a "mini reveal", but I guess too many selectively ignore the information at hand
It was a public location test of an early prototype. For deeproot, not for customers. It is a game that will never be for sale that was being tested. It seemed to work fine for deeproot. New boardsets developed from scratch need testing, why that is so difficult for some to comprehend is anyones guess. Only people up in arms are a small number of ignorant whinging pinsiders whom for some wierd reason seem to feel they are deprived of some sort of special right or privelage.
What is bad (ruining) for deeproot (as a new company soon to start up wanting to protect IP) is coming onto pinside (when there is nothing they are prepared to make public yet) to engage with the natives and the drivel ...
The stupidity of "the internet" is kind of entertaining, to some degree I guess
Speaking of ruining pinball, paying extra for this and that which should simply be an included part of the game, toppers, lights... I suppose the next "innovation" from stern will be DLC code updates that customers have to Pay Extra for... the writing is on the wall lol
