Three new Marvel tables over the next couple of weeks? Or just three tables in general? I guess there is immediate hope.

Also Zen Studios also makes Zen Pinball on the PSN. I wonder if that engine is getting new table(s)?

I did have trouble figuring out how to move both L and R stick while spamming the X and B buttons. I contorted my right hand all sorts of different ways to get the desired effect.
That's true. They did do a great job with the Nightcrawler ability. I forgot that that was what it essentially is. It worked really well in the game's combat system though.

Glad you enjoyed the trial. If you liked that, then you'll enjoy the full game.

That would be "new" with quotation marks. It's been DLC for Zen Pinball on the PS3 for over a year now. Not a bad table, but very fantasy-based with spaceships and robots flying all around.

If only we had a dedicated thread for pinball....

At least superfro posted the date that we all probably saw on Facebook from having followed them for a chance to win new tables last week.

But, thanks.

Excuse you, but this isn't the correct place for talking about that stuff.

Anyway, I guess I'll buy the Mars table even though I already have it for Zen Pinball. I'd rather keep all my tables located on the same platform.

That's more like it : a slew of games I already own on sale. Plus South Park again, giving Risk Factions a run for its money as most frequently discounted XBLA game.

Isn't there also a Capcom Sale? On CAG they were talking about MvC2, Mega Man 10, Final Fight : Double Impact and Bionic Commando being on sale. Maybe that's next week instead?

How come DLC never gets discounted? There's still $10-$15 DLC out there for games that are now at sub-$20 retail.
