I'll be honest, I got in at the back end of the original list for a couple reasons: I love Rob Zombie and I figured even if the game turned out to not be for me, I could likely flip it for more than I bought it for. As I waited for them to work through the list, I watched as TONS of people flipped the game and by the time it got to me, you could buy one off someone (new or used) for considerably less than the pre-order price. I inquired about getting out since I wasn't totally sold on the game, and I could save $500-$1000 by buying someone else's. In the end, I didn't want to stick it to Spooky, so I kept it. Come to find out, it's actually one of my current favs in the collection. I'll be selling a few games to fund some upcoming stuff and RZ is not remotely on the possible sell list, so everything worked out in the end.
I'm glad Spooky is moving to a non-limited, non-refundable deposit model going forward. I hate all the FOMO hysteria when a new game comes out.
Let us see it.
Let us make a decision.
Build one for whomever wants one.
If that's was how all of this stuff was done, we'd all have a ton less pinball drama in our lives.
