Quoted from bemmett:

I'm in for now, want to see more and I need to see that they will offer some additional benefit to those that pre-order other than just getting the game first or else might not be worth having all the money in unfortunately and just grab one later.

I'm in for now, as well. I am a little disappointed in the lack of info up to this point. I wish they would at least chime in here with an update of some kind. I don't know how I will feel about this on April 1st if I haven't been shown something more substantial by DP.

Anyone heard any news? Hell, I'll take a rumor at this point. Getting excited to see something.

Anyone heard anything as far as updates go? Less than three weeks until payment 2 is due. Think we will see another newsletter before then?

I have not seen anything from them regarding the second payment. I did get an e-mail that mentioned they now accept paypal payments in the US.

Quoted from HENSBROOKER:

Only a pity rest of the 153 initial fictional pre-orders are of the silent type...
Also wondering who of the peeps who were blathering about "wanting to see more before I decide..." did/do order now after DP's constructive update?

Yeah, sorta figures... it is easy to bandwagon a hypothetical. I certainly never expected this to materialize when I "pre-ordered" the fictional version. When it was announced in December, it was a total "Hell Yeah" moment for me. What gets me more are the people who bitched about the "viral" campaign and how massively hyped it was for just a pre-order. Since when was printing some flyers and putting a count down timer on a web site massive hype?

I have to say I am super excited by what I have seen so far. Not four months in and a preliminary playfield design has already emerged. Hell, I think most pre-ordered game builders don't show much of anything for 6-8 months and then it is just a cabinet design, which is the easiest piece of the puzzle.

Quoted from RTR:

Check my math dudes, but I am missing about 145 preorders. Let me take another look, they must be down there somewhere....

They're still trying to find the ATM.

Quoted from bemmett:

If I had to choose between chrome and PDI glass I'd prefer PDI

I could take or leave the chrome too. It seems to be a done deal, though. Hopefully, DP will offer PDI as a an upgrade prior to shipping. I would at least be able to save the cash I would have spent on freight for the PDI and I don't have to deal with extra glass floating around.

Quoted from burningman:

I'd rather have a kick ass bowling mech in the game vs stuff I can add/bolt on later.

I agree. The pre-order perks were great and even unprecedented but I don't expect anything else from DP in the extras department. I do hope that they make the custom balls available for purchase.

On a completely unrelated note (and for the narrow audience that may be interested), TBL's soundtrack was released on Record Store Day's Black Friday on "White Russian" vinyl in limited quantities:

Quoted from Aurich:

Sorry for the essay, seemed best to just lay it all out since people were curious.

As usual, your insight is always appreciated . Given some of your previous posts related to JPOP, I was sorta shocked that you were wooed into the TBL pre-order machine in the first place. I share many of your views on the whole pre-order system which seems to be becoming more and more the norm these days. For better or worse, I based my decision to pre-order TBL on theme alone and it has been an ideal experience for the most part. Admittedly, I have been a pretty passive observer in the whole thing. No personal discussions with Phil. Haven't been to one of the public showings yet. I still have confidence in DP and TBL despite some reservations. The whole BOP 2.0 debacle is troublesome to me, if not unexpected (for the record, I am not in on BOP 2.0). I can also foresee a few more bumps in the road before TBL is in production. Anyone who thinks that developing a prototype is the easy part of producing a pinball machine (or anything else, for that matter) needs a reality check. Hopefully, the DP team will learn a few things from their BOP troubles and TBL will be finished before delivered. I am firmly in the "I don't mind waiting a little while longer until it's finished' camp.
