Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I haven't played it in almost a week now, but I seem to remember not being impressed with the views again. Are they different than the other tables?

Everything post Marvel has been a little different. 4 from Marvel is not 4 from all others post. The dramatic overhead when in a multiball here is helpful however.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Spent some more time on Ms Splosion Man in the last week or so, ended up just a little over 385 million. The problem with this table's easiness for me is mainly I have to really be in the mood to play it since the games can last a little while, that one took probably about 50 minutes, I do know it wasn't an hour since I have no games of at least an hour in my stats. This table has to have the easiest bonus multipliers out of all the tables, I usually get it up to the 10x on each ball, combined with one of the spiral bonuses giving you the bonus points you can get some monster points there. On one ball managed to get about 40million from the spiral awarding me the bonus then another 65million when I ended up losing the ball.

On a side note, expect them to announce a release date for Paranormal or Sorcerer's Lair for Pinball FX2 soon, since I just picked them up on Zen Pinball. I like them both, but can't wait to get them on FX, for the much better physics and the things I don't like about Zen (Having to use the pressure sensitivity instead of the right stick for the plunger and having to push hard to make sure secondary flippers respond).

Sorcerer's Lair is now showing up in the Pinball FX2 table selection screen, although it won't let you DL the trial or full table yet. Hopefully that means release next Wed.

I'm up to 721M in Ms. Splosion Man now. I think I could break 1B on that easily enough.

That is a goregous board. I haven't played Pinball Fx in all honesty, but this might get me to start.

It's a fun and kid- friendly table. Clearly "inspired by" Harry Potter. I have the Zen table on the PS3 and like playing it with my daughter. Why they ported this one before the older Paranormal table (that I still haven't bought yet) is beyond me. Just my luck, I guess.

Is that at all Halloween themed? If so, it would be a nice "treat" to get in the next week or so.

From the Playstation Blog:



Marvel Pinball: Ghost Rider Trailer, PS Vita Plans

+ Posted by Zsolt Kigyossy // Managing Director, Zen Studios




It’s been pretty busy here at Zen Studios, and we just had to take a break to fill you all in on some pretty exciting developments with the Marvel Pinball series. If you rewind back to San Diego Comic-Con, you may remember we announced a brand new four-table pack, Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue. Ghost Rider, half of the “Vengeance” part of the title, was the first table revealed, and to this point there have only been a handful of screens to explore – but today, right here on the PlayStation.Blog, we are giving you a first look at Johnny Blaze, Lucifer, and Zadkiel in action.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8r-NkD3BefU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Did you see what we did there??? “A virtuous announcement coming to New York Comic Con.” Yes, we will be revealing a new table this Saturday @ 1:15 – 2:15 during the Marvel Games panel at NYCC. Any guesses on the reveal?



On to some PS Vita news! Marvel Pinball is looking really sharp on PlayStation’s upcoming handheld. We cannot say enough about how freaking awesome this new device is and how amazing it is to develop on. Marvel Pinball is making full use of PS Vita’s coolest features, including both front- and back-panel touch support, gyro sensor, accelerometer and last but not least, cross-platform functionality with PSN. As we get closer to the release of Marvel Pinball on PS Vita, we will definitely provide more details on all of these features. One more thing: Look for Marvel Pinball to be available for PS Vita starting day one!

As you can see, there is a lot of Marvel Pinball love coming to PlayStation. Stay tuned to NYCC for news on the next table reveal. I will be checking this post throughout the weekend to answer questions. Thanks!

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Does that rightmost one look like Magneto to anyone?

God, I'd love for him to have his own table against the X-Men. There would be so many crazy things they could do with magnetism on it.

Doctor Strange the 3rd? I can't tell the 2nd, but aren't we still "owed" a Hulk table from that vote a few months ago? Doesn't look like Hulk really and I don't know how he fits in with V&V, but...

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Here's a new trailer for another one of the V&V tables, I assume it's the one that's going to be announced at NYCC tomorrow.

Holy shit! X-Men. Totally sold! Don't even care what the other tables are (and have no interest in Ghost Rider); just seeing what Magneto will do with my ball is worth 800 points to me.

Quoting that for your phrasing.

However - functionally, that looks quite similar to the Wolverine table already

I knew the phrasing was problematic (hense my intentional lack of pluralization), but just didn't even care. The X-Men table looks to have more real estate than Wolverine, so that by default should make it a better table.

As if Zen Studio's Pinball FX series weren't already enormously popular, studio reps told an audience of New York Comic Con attendees that the series would be heading to Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and iOS/Android "phones and tablets" at some point in 2012. Get your flippin' fingers at the ready!


You know, if we're going to be all nit-picky.

And give credit to where credit's due (though by his location in the silhouette, I doubt that whatever pinata thought was Magneto was actually Magneto:

Sorry, just going by what the official press release in my inbox said, and this snippet from an email on Tuesday from the PR guy "Next, if you are interested in reviewing Zen Pinball 3D for the Nintendo 3DS..."

Of course, it seems that you are failing to notice that the PFX for 2012 while the Zen 3DS is a eShop release this fall. If we're being nit-picky.
