Any guesses?
Given the timing, could it really be anything other than Thor?

You know the ramp bonus? It used to be 100k, 250k, 500k, 1million. Now it tops out at 100k(I think).

A few weeks ago, they released a patch for that table and reset everyone's score. I used to have a score in the 40million's range (I think). One person on my friends list had a score of like 750 million.

But how long was the game that resulted in 25M? Also, you better be careful about which tables you buy if you want to do your achievement whoring. Some of the achievements can be neigh impossible.

To be honest my most anticipated part of you finally jumping into Pinball FX was to get to see just how insufferable you became.

Also...get the Marvel tables.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I'm not a full achievement whore anymore, but just getting the first Mars achievement sealed that fate. 5/900 then and when the next Marvel table releases it would have been 5/950.

It wasn't long, it's all about getting one or two of the main modes done. Like I said, just finishing the Aesop & Son mode (find 6 the lost sheep) resulted in a 10M bonus on top of whatever you get for each of the sheep.

Fantastic Four yo!

http://marvel.com/news/story/15748/d...tic_four_table

Marvel Pinball is celebrating 50 years of the Fantastic Four with the addition of its newest table, which highlights the teamwork of Mister Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Thing and the Human Torch!

Today, ZEN Studios announced the Fantastic Four downloadable content for PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360, making this the very first expansion for the full game. The table will offer new achievements and trophies, operators menu, rule sheet and even social feature support. Use the powers of all four heroes to conquer a whole new set of obstacles and defeat some of the Marvel Universe's greatest threats- including Doctor Doom, Galactus and a few other surprise guests!

The Fantastic Four DLC will be available May 17th on the PlayStation Network (good luck) in North America, and May 18th for PlayStation Network Europe and Pinball FX2 on XBL Arcade. Visit the official Marvel Pinball website at www.marvelpinball.com and stay glued to Marvel.com for all the latest news about this critically-acclaimed video game.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

That looks like a really cool table, but I have to wonder if Zen actually did anything with that vote they had up on their site. Because if they really kept the results of that poll as the deciding factor in which Marvel table they'd put out next, and more people picked The Fantastic Four than Hulk or Captain America, well that just seems about as implausible as asking the public to pick a Madden cover athlete and having them choose, I don't know,...Peyton Hillis.

I don't even think FF was part of that vote. Chances are this was in the works before that vote. A while back the Zen PR person said she'd played 8 tables (unique remakes, licensed, or new ) recently. This is three of that eight.

So do you have to be in the top three on the last day in order to win? Or is there going to be winners everyday?
