Quoted from pindome:
You should send Robin a case of wine as a thank you for deleting most of your post. The way it is edited now you look a lot let less foolish. It's your lucky day go buy some lottery tickets if you win you can start your own pinball company and we'll see what you can produce....
It should have never been edited. Don't worry, I got edited after it was read by all. It left an impression, followed by a typical damage control statement. There is all truth in all those comments. It was never meant to be cruel or mean. It was feedback that is shared by many that are greatly disappointed with the outcome so far. After all this time, the game is not earth shattering whatsoever. It is far from a game changer. Criticism should be expected.
JJP publically threw many people under the bus along the way, vendors, woz licensing approvers, and stern etc. JJP saying people are haters, is just as ironic as calling the kettle black.
As far as my comments...If it was about me and my company, I would print it, frame it, and place it on my desk. Everyday it would remind me to raise the bar and follow through. You can curl up in the fetal position when criticized, and call everyone haters, or strive to keep your word, talk less and provide an earth shattering game. That's all any of us want. A company is only as good as it's product. Right now, it's not good imo. It's as exciting as watching a Disney parade. Kids and senior citizens will enjoy it. Can't say those are the included in the majority of hardcore pinball enthusiasts.
With all due respect JJP, stick to building a supposed game changer. Leave the other details for the book.
