I’m on order for TNA soon ish timeframe.

Was curious which is better overall game? I’ve played a handful of games on both leaning towards TNA still but DI is getting a lot of love as well.

What are the pros and cons of each game?

They're not remotely similar games, get the one you want to play, no one will ever be able to make a choice like that for you.

It's like asking if you should put on rap or metal next on the jukebox, people will give you their takes, but you gotta play what you want to listen to.

Polar opposite games. Both are great. Personally I’d choose DI.

BOTH! That's what I did.......

#5 1 year ago

I got both as well. Should be a great combo. (Still waiting for my TNA build, but if you want to put some games on DI, you are welcome to come over)

I have a DILE with a TNA coming. I actually think they're perfect compliments to one another. Dialed In can have moments where it's fast, but it's more of a deliberate shooter with a lot of varied modes and objectives. TNA is just balls to the wall with a straightforward and repeating goal. Choosing one or the other would be really tough for me, as there are very few things to directly compare between the two.

So...both!

Like aurich said...2 way different pins. I dont care for tna bc its not the type of pin i enjoy. However dile is perfect imo and is my favorite pin ever made and id b completely happy if it was my only pin. Tna is great and probably the best for that type of pin but its not for everyone.

#8 1 year ago

Completely different games, really not many similarities, if any.

I understand why people like TNA and while I would play it on location I can't see buying it to put into my home. TNA is a sweet looking game but I gravite towards a different style of game. I prefer deep objective based ruleset games with a lot of toys / mechanical features, lots of animation work, etc, so that's why I went with Dialed In for my next game.

Very different. DI would last much longer, but TNA is still very fun.

#10 1 year ago

both are great!

DI was too much for my pocket so TNA was my personal choice.
If I had the extra funny money DI would be right next to TNA!

#11 1 year ago

Both are great. Tough decision. If you have the money I would say DI.

#12 1 year ago

This duo wld be the ultimate 2 pin only combo for home use

#13 1 year ago

I’m leaning towards TNA because I have so many long playing or deep rule games and I don’t play a ton of pinball so I’m thinking TNA would be great for quick play and not having to remember all the little rules. I just played LotR the other day got to destroy the ring and realized didn’t know exactly what the rules were on the fly.

I really do like deep rules TWD, Woz, Tspp, AcDc but sometimes think I’d like something more basic to change up.

In spite of having less rules than other pins I really love Tron and IM.

More like techno or elevator music.

I wldnt call di long playing and its not super deep like the pins u mentioned. Its the perfect amount of quick objectives and medium range ones imo. Most of my games are 4 -5 minutes.

You should probably just let me take your place in the TNA line.

I bought both and love both.. I couldn’t choose.

I love it!!

This is a great time for pinball. 5-6 years ago who would have predicted we’d be having such a bonanza of different machines?

#19 1 year ago

I vote dialed in.

Who would have thought you’d see a family enjoying two new unlicensed pinball machines in their home in 2018?

Talk about cool and refreshing on many levels.

#21 1 year ago

I wasn’t even thinking about unlicensed but more like whole new pinball companies and how Spooky/Scott have almost broken the mold meaning that one guy with a vision can build a whole new pin top to bottom. Saw with WOOLY how it can be to get pin project off the ground. Hopefully we can see other small projects get the attention TNA has. Of course not all will be great but it’ll be neat to see what else is possible without spending up to $1M which the major players maybe spend on each new pin.

Refreshing indeed. Sick of the licensed titles.

#23 1 year ago

Dialed in by a mile it is one of the best games in modern pinball.

#24 1 year ago

TNA is a unique game with a cool theme. Of the two that would be my choice by far.

#25 1 year ago

Like others have said, it's all about personal preference and the cost for sure can be a factor. I personally chose DI over TNA. I love the idea of having both. They're like the yin and yang of modern pinball. I may just have to sell off a pin or 2 to make room for this duo.
