Alright, like the old saying goes, if ya can't beat them, join them... so, here's my suggestion for the first DeepRoot music-themed machine based on the movie from 1982:
Quoted from Fulltilt:
LOL... thanks Ben! Have faith.. I know it's hard after that run. I have to say I hope you are wrong.
I've been out $9500 since 2013-14. Never expected to see anything back after the legal fiasco ran it's course.
I really think that I now have something to look forward to again. Resolved to the fact I don't care which way it turns out.
I'd rather have 2 DR pins than 0 Jpop pins. That's what I have at this point.
Quoted from iceman44:
Why criticize your former partner Jpop?
I’m staying in myself for the reasons I started out with from day one.
I’m a pinball guy and it’s been a LONG journey
I’m ready to see what RAZA will turn out to be
Count me in for the long haul as well. I'm hopeful to visit the plant sometime next year, take a tour and sample their wares before picking two for myself. The key point here is Robert and DR didn't HAVE to do diddly-squat for us folks that were burned by Zidware but, they are. For that they've earned my patience. I have nothing to lose and possibly, much to gain... that's how I see it.
Amidst all the negativity I have a bit of good news. I decided to go check out the Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo this year for the first time, in part because I hope there'll be a RAZA prototype there that isn't made out of foam core. I thought about it and was like, what the heck, Let's go. So, I am. Unrelated, but due to a busy October this'll be the first time in ~15 years I haven't attended Pinball Expo, so I also feel like this fills that gap. When I looked into it yesterday I found everything (airfare/lodging) to be surprisingly affordable so why not!
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
Interesting. There are a LOT of people on pinside who signed up, so they should be receiving similar payoffs soon
And how exactly do you know this to be a fact?
For instance, I don't recall seeing a poll along the lines of, 'Are you part of the Goodwill claimants?'
Godammit. Showing off art in lieu of something physically operational is so jpopian it's sad.
Quoted from o-din:
We have two now. Better double up on those Oscar Meyer cold cuts.
Correction: There are at least three. fulltilt and I are in similar positions w/r/t the Zidware G/W Settlement.
I'm very interested and extremely appreciative of their warm gesture. Can't say yet if I can make it due to a conflict with an annual ski trip in Breckenridge. Matter of fact this is why I've never been to TPF... bad timing. But this may very well be the year that changes.
Not sure I mentioned it before but I did go to the Houston expo this year and played the RAZA prototypes. Realizing that not many pins tick everybody's boxes, my gut says RAZA will develop a cult following and bring pleasure to many.
Now it's time to go work on convincing the Mrs we should add a stop in Dallas to our itinerary...
I'm very much looking forward to the rebroadcast of the reveal.
TPF would have been awesome but I'm dying to know what titles they have planned and if possible, when they expect to release them.
