Quoted from crlush:
I had the same reaction to Munsters but not till after I played it. I was excited when revealed, and and after Deadflip stream, but thats where it ended for me. I love Black Knight, I like BK2000 but it had to grow on me, I couldnt stand the music at first but it ended up growing on me, looking forward to playing some BKSOR.
Oh, I'm looking forward to playing it as well. To me this was the first Stern reveal stream that has not helped in building the excitement within me. All the rest in the last 2-3 years have. Don't get me wrong, I know Steve, Tim, and the rest of Stern have worked hard on this and I love their enthusiasm shown in the stream.
The Pro reveal was OK, about what I expected, and was really dying to see the Premium/LE gameplay with the upper playfield. Then they swapped over to the LE....that upper playfield NEEDS something. Right now it's a flipper, a 3 ball mechanical lock, and a loop switch. It needs a pop bumper, or a slingshot, or a target bank, or inline drop targets.....something. Heck, in a lot of cases lately Stern's later code additions has saved the day (TWD, BM66, GOTG, DP), but unfortunately there is nothing to write code for on the upper playfield!
Yet, I'm still hopeful that 3-6 months from now this turns into a great pin. BK was such an iconic pin during my childhood and holds a special place in my pin memories when it first came out.....
