Quoted from delt31:
Ice - out of respect for the ice I knew before I'm going to reply in a respectful fashion. I'm out after this though. Becoming boring now.
I bought Sth NIB. I'm not someone that comes in and whines but doesn't buy anything. I also said the game was perfectly fine. Yes code rush but foundation is there. Criticism was over the top. Check the boards. It's all in there.
What I am calling out is this ridicous add on DLC bullshit. Im calling out the shills who defend Stern even as they're being bent over. I'm calling out the distributor who says don't worry about pf defects, what's the big deal about Stern building something into the pf and then charging later.....BUY BUY BUY
And no Ice I didn't call Stern to complain bc I'm not a b****. I just won't support them when they attempt that BS marketing. Feel free to continue defending. You know where I stand.
If we are "being bent over" then i LIKE how it feels. As for the "add ons", look around currently at what's going on, and it's gonna become commonplace maybe just not after the fact.
Stern took away the "flipper profit" after the MetLE debacle and now they are trying to get some of the "mod market profit". Maybe that won't work out, maybe it will, this could be a one off based on THIS PARTICULAR GAME.
IF Stern cared so much about the "mod market profit" however, i would say they are doing a shitty job of capitalizing on it. Can't keep toppers in stock AND where are the JP shooter rods if its all just a "money grab".
JJP does a pretty good job of doing full game version "add ons" after the fact.
I don't like how other people, not saying you, think they know better how to spend MY money. That...is ridiculous. To imply that anyone buying this game is an "idiot", over and over again, gets a bit old.
I know you, we can give each other shit, you can give Stern shit. At the end of the day it's pinball, we are all having fun and still brothers!
Truthfully, we all know what's up, been around the block a few hundred times now, it's the people that can't think for themselves in the echo chamber that crack me up and need help.
