This is very on brand.

Holy cow, over 10,000 viewers on Twitch.

Quoted from usandthem:

So, when Kaneda spouted off about it not being like anything you've ever seen before and blowing everything away for essentially all of eternity, what exactly did he mean by that?

It has to be in the geometry or overall theme integration, I guess. It's not really that different from WOZ, DI or POTC in terms of the level of mechanics. Not that that's a bad thing, but yeah, nothing really surprising.

Looking forward to trying it out!

Don't really know why anyone (myself included) would think differently

Hope springs eternal. It's part of the fun in this hobby.

Quoted from dirtbag66:

Just realized the standard is $100 more than Oktoberfest.

This game seems like really bad news for AP.

Quoted from DeadFlip:

Absolutely massive for pinball. The plus of Front Page time on Twitch is exposing it to people that would otherwise never watch pinball.

My favorite part of the Twitch chat is all the sane, non-pinball people who wandered in and are incredulous that ANYONE would spend 12 grand on a pinball machine.

Quoted from mystman12:

I'm honestly surprised at how much negativity I'm seeing here. Starting to see why some people don't like Pinside, haha. There may not be anything groundbreaking here, but it looks like an absolute blast to shoot and that's what matters most to me. Rules seem great too. I hope I can get a chance to try it soon.
As for sound, I'm not sure how I feel... I was initially glad to hear the upbeat music (VS. the kind of music you find in The Hobbit, which is fantastic, but it doesn't really work well as pinball music), but as I listened more I started to feel like it might be *too* noisy. I've been thinking a lot lately at how lackluster sound design has been in modern pinball compared to the great sound packages created by guys like Chris Granner, Brian Schmidt, and Dan Forden (In my humble opinion anyways. Maybe I'm in the minority, but there haven't been any games in the past few decades with sound and music that has grabbed my attention like older games did), so when I heard they had some new talent doing the sound here I was excited to see what he would bring to the table. I'll definitely have to try this game with headphones whenever I find one to get a better idea of the sound package. Ultimately though I'll take too exciting over too quiet any day.

I dunno, it seems like the response is mostly positive so far. Sure, there are a handful of disappointed people, but there always are.

The game looks like a lot of fun and what they're putting out for the price of a Stern Premium is just incredible IMO. Full RGB, four flippers, camera, multiple custom molded toys, kickback, high-res playfield/plastics art, mini LCD, multiple ball locks, 7 magnets...it's just packed.

JJP dropping prices to compete with Stern is the real story here IMO.

Quoted from bigehrl:

no offense rotordave, but while it may not be the number you’re used to, making 5000 of something is still by definition, Limited.

Sure. JJP could also say they're making 10,000,000 units and it'd technically still be "limited," but then all words start to lose meaning as we spiral deeper into a world of contextless, valueless marketing bullshit.

5,000 units for a boutique pinball company in 2019 isn't limited. Especially JJP, who roll out different editions like they're going out of style.
