Oh, I thought that was the previous Kickstarter of Star Trek TNG table. This is a different Star Trek table?

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

I'm guessing some of the Stern stuff after AC/DC included licensing for digital versions and that might be why Star Trek and Ghostbusters aren't going to need a kickstarter for the licensing. I also just noticed, they've apparently canceled the AC/DC kickstarter, I wonder if it's going to be relaunched.

That's correct, Stern built it into their licensing for all of their newer games.

They should do a combo Kickstarter of AC/DC and Metallica. They really are two of their best pins.

On their Facebook page, they posted this :

The Pinball Arcade
The Pinball Arcade We have no official support and we have been put on hold due to licensing issues.

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

I have no clue actually. But it's something, as opposed to the radio silence on their Kickstarter comment page.

PSN SCEE, PSN SCEA, Xbox One, Xbox 360 & Steam, May 3-9:
Star Wars Pinball: 77% off
Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force pack 50% off
Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within pack: 50% off
Star Wars Pinball: Rebels table: 50% off
Star Wars Pinball: The Force Awakens: 33% off
For Xbox One and PS4 only: Star Wars Pinball Season 1 Bundle on (All SWP tables) $20.99, and $17.99 for PS Plus subscribers
I got on my X1 today and it didn't seem like any of the SW tables were on sale except the entire Season of all 13 tables (which I already have most of). Am I missing something or was the sale only good yesterday (except the entire season)?

I saw the same thing. I think I saw the Rebels table on sale on the 360 marketplace, but I haven't fired up the console to confirm.

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

Apparently the licensing issues on the AC/DC table are that they got another source for the funding. The table seems to officially be coming.

That's so weird.

As long as it's coming and I can buy it at their normal price, I'm fine with it I suppose.

The Pinball Arcade
1 hr ·

Thanks to the amazing reception that Stern Pinball Arcade has received, we’ve been able to enter into a new partnership that will allow us to immediately start on the development of AC/DC pinball! This will allow us to add these great tables to the Stern Pinball Arcade even sooner than we had hoped.

We will release more information about this exciting development soon- stay tuned!

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

For anybody who cares , the Balls of Glory pack for Pinball FX2 (X1) is on sale this week for $6.69 a 33% savings. Not amazing, but good enough to get me to go get it. The South Park pack is also $2.50, a 50% savings. Maybe if they offered the South Park one for a $1, I'd be interested , I have about as much passion to play that one as the Star Wars ones.

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

The South Park tables are hella fun so it is very much worth the $2.50. I paid the regular price and thought they were well worth it.

I haven't picked up the Balls Of Glory pack yet so thanks for posting that.

I just wish Pinball Arcade would run another season pack sale. I didn't have an X1 when they ran the last (only?) one and they never seem to go on sale.

I bought the Alien pack over the weekend and enjoyed them. The sound design on Aliens is excellent. I thought that I would get tired of hearing "Game Over Man!" but I don't.

I'll get the BoG pack despite my ambivalence for Family Guy and American Dad. I'm in for H. Jon Benjamin. So, to that end, even $6.69 is more expensive than two tables should be.

That Archer table is well worth it though. Danger Zone!

Marvel announced Women of Power pinball at SDCC.



2-table pack. No specific release date, but Zen tweeted it'll be available in the fall.

Yep, that is Kamala Khan, never read her book but I love using her in Marvel Puzzle Quest. I hear it's really good but my comic reading is virtually nonexistent these days.

Women of Power Coming to Marvel Pinball

Join Black Widow, Squirrel Girl, Spider-Gwen, and more in a new two-pack!


Published
Sep 20, 2016



Zen Studios, developer of hit digital pinball titles, has revealed their latest entry to the storied Marvel Pinball franchise: Marvel’s Women of Power! Coming to Zen’s pinball platforms on September 27, Marvel’s Women of Power pack brings together the mightiest female Super Heroes and Super Villains in the Marvel Universe in two amazing new tables.

Combining a plethora of stellar Super Hero ladies from the Marvel Universe, the Marvel’s Women of Power two-pack combines two tables starring Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, Squirrel Girl, and more! Wage an epic battle in an alternate Soviet-dominated reality in the A-Force table, featuring an all-new storyline where the destruction of a Cosmic Cube has formed a Soviet-controlled alternate reality. Keep the Cosmic Cube balls alive in the table’s Wizard Mode by directly controlling Black Widow and Madame Masque!


In the Champions table, defeat Bombshell with Ms. Marvel in an original storyline where players must help Kamala Khan and her friends as they take on Bombshell following a daring bank robbery. Utilize Squirrel Girl’s “squirrel army” to search for the criminal’s tracks and Spider-Gwen’s webbing to incapacitate your enemies on this exciting table!

Marvel’s Women of Power two-pack will be released on consoles, PC and mobile platforms on September 27, 2016. For more information on Marvel’s Women of Power tables as well as other titles from Zen Studios, please visit blog.zenstudios.com.

Re: The Ultimate Battle Free Pinball Thread

Good news : The new two-table Marvel's Women of Power pack is now up on PSN for PS3, PS4 and Vita (Cross-Buy, as always)

Bad News : It's at a higher price than ever before ($6.99 for two tables).

While that's still less than Far Sight usually charges, it is high for Zen Pinball. On their forum, community manager Barbie stated
Our tables are getting more detailed/complex and developing them for higher-end hardware requires more development time and assets. (Not to mention having premium licenses is getting more costly for us.)

Shouldn't they cost 73% of the male-centric tables?

Coming VERY soon, apparently. Press release in a day or so.


BTW : I was wondering the other day about Far Sight : Remember how we had to contribute to a Kickstarter to get the funding for Terminator 2 to pay for Arnold Schwarzenegger's likeness and voice?

Has anyone seen the latest table that they put out on consoles (without any Kickstarter whatsoever)?
