My podcast, Dead Pixel Live, will be doing a live interview with Zen Studios on July 28th at 7pm EST. You can listen live and submit questions to the hosts at chat.allgames.com . If you can't be there live, but still have something you want us to ask, you can leave a reply here or on the DPL website (deadpixellive.com) .

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Sweet! I asked the TP guys last week exactly how their collaboration started, but none of them really knew and the guy they said would know wasn't there. So I guess my question for Zen would be:

How did the relationship with Twisted Pixel for the Ms. 'Splosion Man table begin and if they are looking to partner up with other developers in the future (and any names they want to drop )?

Ask them about addressing the score boosting exploit that is prevalent on their leaderboards.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

You can expect a big update for ZEN Pinball. It is being designed to behave like PFX2, hopefully we will get it out before the end of 2k11
Yes, Sorcerer's Lair and Paranormal are both coming this year to PFX2

Ms. Splosion Man announcement is coming tomorrow (I think). It did not get made last week for the same reasons games don't ship on time!

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I'd like to ask if they are working on acquiring any other licensing agreements. Specifically if their successful collaboration with Marvel might open the door to a licensing agreement with Marvel's parent company Disney. Because a Nightmare Before Christmas or Who Framed Roger Rabbit table would be AWESOME.

Literally any Disney table would be stellar. I'd love a princess themed one... FOR MY DAUGHTERS!!!! Yeah, for them. Even a Disneyland one would be fantastic.

I fear, though, that Disney would be too proud to let Zen take that kind of ownership to put them into the combined library.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I was about to post that (image url all up on my clipboard). Either they are or it's a component of Ms. 'Splosion Man which is supposed to be officially revealed today.

Mr. Destructoid was in MSM, at least as a guest...

Thanks Tips! That's why I catechized the question.

There is a high ratio of pink in that shot though... and the white blob in the upper right looks like a Big Science scientist. You may be correct sir.

Sorry, I didn't read your words enough to process them. They're usually covered in drool.

Yup, it's Ms Splosion Man. Several pictures up, only one that shows anything of substance:

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I hope the table ends up being more pink than it seems. I don't appreciate the slow-trickle of news on this one compared to the previous announcements that come with a trailer and a near release date.

Between this and Comic-Con announcing MP:V&V, it seems they want to hide they don't have a July table for us. So much for the one per month promise!

Hello ZEN Studios Forum Members,

I am happy to confirm that MARS will be releasing for Pinball FX2 on April 20, 2011!!! We know it has been quite some time since a new table release, but we have been making important improvements to the overall infrastructure of Pinball FX2 so that it is a sustainable platform for a long time to come.

Starting this month (April), you can expect regular table releases, hopefully each month. You all have to understand that creating these tables is no walk in the park, even with all of the experience our studio has. We pledge to only release product when it is ready to go - with the right amount of polish and attention to detail.

Thanks for your patience through all of this. Currently, there are only 2 of us on the MARS leaderboard - suffice to say, life is lonely on MARS! We will be giving codes away to forum members before release. Feel free to add me to your friends list - crackervizzo.

Best,

Mel Kirk
ZEN Studios
April - Mars
May - F4
June - Captain
July - ???
August - Profit!

Okay, I'm late to Pinball FX2. I just downloaded the basic game and the Marvel pack. What other tables should I get? And if you say all of them I will smack you.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Eventually you'll get them all anyway. The 4 Marvel tables should hold your attention for a while. Captain is phenomenal. Other people like F4, but I'm lukewarm on it. Probably just need to give it more time.

All the other single tables have pros and cons, but you can try them all. I haven't had any complaints on any of them.

Holy fuck, that Iron Man table is impossible. I was playing split-screen multiplayer with a friend and neither of us could get to 10 million. We played for at least 40 minutes.
