I stayed up until 2am to watch the stream, for an old geezer like me its not easy as the home usually insists I'm in bed and medicated by 9pm.
For me I was hugely pleased. This is probably the first game that I really care about the theme in years. I love The Mandalorian its a super tv programme!
First off the art and the design of the playfield looked great, the lighting of it was fantastic. Then as I was promised the music, holy moly, Jerry and Stern totally freaking nailed it on the sound. It couldn't be better short of an implant to my brain of the epic Mando music. The explanation of the different modes and plays styles was super and I really like the flow of the game and the shots. The mando helmet probably the bit that I need to play more to really have a view on but it looked fun. The video and assets in the game are superbly used and plenty of speech from the game too. Apollo does a great job on the call outs but again need to hear a bit more. I have a lot of time for listening to Dwight and his passion and excitement is fantastic I also like how he explained through the baskar and the trading system in a lot of detail too. Also great to see Mike on stream as he's a fantastic guy.
I see a lot of folks give them agro for the stream, you've no idea how hard it is to stream a launch like this; trying to get the right audio and video and the whole experience but every stream DeadFlip nails it in my view and getting folks mic'ed up made it even better. You need to realise that the pinball designers and coders etc are not TV personalities and you are trying to direct them, make it interesting and get the right info out and Jack is the master at that in my view. Sure he could have had flashing lights dancing girls and hot pants which is great for a two minute facebook ad but not really telling you much about the game.
When it was even remotely rumoured that this game was mando I put my distributor on for an LE and after last night I'm super glad I did. Time will tell after playing it for a while but based on what I've seen I really like it and I'm really excited about it. Just concerned that we might have a bit of a wait to get it with the component shortages that seem to be affecting industry at the moment.
I have spoken.
