Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Most tables you can figure out by simply hitting whatever is flashing. From there you should be able to figure out how to start missions, lock your ball, etc.

Initially it was only by 100k. I then played some more, got 79 million, and claimed Pinball King on my current FL.

I do like how Chuck has the highest Wizard Score despite not knoing what he's up to.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

That's great news about the Marvel tables. Of course I'll be buying those.

I read on the Zen forum that the currently PSN-exclusive tables Mars and Paranormal will be coming to FX2. I already have Mars (and like it), but I'm glad I held off on Paranormal. That table looks pretty good.

That seems to be the biggest mystery. I would love to be able to set up tournaments with people on my FL, but it seems that they will not be that.

Awesome that on XBLA it will just come in the form as 4 new tables for Pinball FX2.

Then there is this awesome little tidbit of info:

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Those are pretty fantasy-heavy tables. I'll still get them, but I prefer tables that are plausible as real world tables. I assume they'll be $10 for the set.

Son of a bitch, of course I just bought Zen Pinball like a week ago. Bah, I'll probably just re-buy any tables that also are released for FX2.

One thing I've noticed with Zen Pinball is that the physics seem "off", much more floaty than real life or FX2.

I hope Zen do a Incredible Hulk and the Mighty Thor tables down the road.

After watching the trailer I have to agree. I could definitely do without characters jumping all around the table like that. I'd be okay with it if at least one or two of the tables were more realistic. But as you said, I'll get them regardless.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a Thor and a Captain America next year with the movies coming out.

There's a survey up on that page with the trailer asking which table would people like to see next, between Captain America, Hulk, Fantastic Four, and Ghost Rider.

I voted for Captain America, seemed like it would be a good fit. Not that Hulk wouldn't also be a good choice (destroying stuff using the ball could be cool), it's also in the lead with Captain right behind it.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Also, Thor is probably a no-brainer with the movie coming out, I'm sure they will do a tie-in.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

I don't mind that these aren't going to be the most realistic tables. For the most part it looks like most of the animated things are going to be off to the side, other than the Green Goblin stuff in the Spider-Man table. Looking at the article on joystiq, I have to say even if I hadn't been planning on buying these, I'd consider buying them just based on how great the table art looks

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Not a huge Marvel fan but will probably pick all the tables up anyway.

Really love this idea though. Hope it's successful enough for Zen to start picking up other licenses. Would give my left nut for a Lucasfilm pack with all the Star Wars and Indy tables. I'd probably give my right one for Terminator 2 and Guns N' Roses pinball, too.

Thank you for posting this. I actually bought a $20 PSN card on Friday to get these tables but never got around to buying them over the weekend. I will definitely wait for them to come to Live now.

I love the Marvel tables. Can't wait for those. I voted for Hulk but after thinking about it, a Ghost Rider table would be pretty damn cool and the motorcycle theme would lend itself to pinball well.

If any of you guys that are playing and posting on here regularly that don't have me as a friend, send me a request or I may send you one if i notice I am missing you. I love have the score comparisons and the challenge to beat them. (Liver and Matty - I just sent you a friend request)

Now, neither Mars nor Paranormal are included with the core Zen Pinball game. Those four tables (Tesla, El Dorado, Shaman and whatever their car race table is) are PSN exclusive and as far as I know will remain so. Mars and Paranormal are Zen Pinball-exclusive DLC tables currently, but will apparently be coming to FX2 as well. Excalibur, Earth Defense and Street Fighter II are available for both Zen Pinball and FX2. The only other PSN-exclusive table is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and since that game isn't on Xbox (in the Sigma form anyway), I wouldn't expect that table to cross over to FX2.

Re: The Ultimate Pinball Thread

Strange that Zen decided to release Marvel Pinball as FX2 DLC but as a stand-alone game on PSN rather than Zen Pinball DLC. Wonder why they made that choice.
In any case, it'll be an XBLA purchase for me.

From Joystiq's Gallery:
Spoiler:






That Wolverine table looks way too busy for it's own good. Love the Spider-Man artwork, though

Any time frame on when those tables are coming over to Live?

I still haven't purchased the Ninja Gaiden table but it is tough for me to buy anything for my PS3 since it usually only gets turned on to play a BD. It's hard to justify the purchase.

I really hope they get some DC licensing and do some DC tables as well.

I will absolutely buy the Marvel ones.


Now I want some recreated tables. Give me Theater of Magic and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

I think I'll decline since i had had you on my FL previously, only to have been trimmed and now re-added. Wreaks havoc on a man's feelings.

Those look awesome to me, it'll probably renew my interest in Pinball FX.

PFX2 should renew your interest.
