    So funny but sad at the same time... I found the following to be most hilarious:

    Title of the video is: Marvel Pinball: Fantastic Four Trailer

    "Thumbs up if you thought this was going to be a trailer to a new Fantastic Four movie."

    And 34 other people were actually as blind as the commenter and thumbed this up. Oh my...

      Wow, that looks great. Looks like a lot to do. Really liked the way they have Reed performing the saves. Nice to see Doom and Galactus make an appearance along with a nod to the first issue with Mole Man at least on the table. Can't wait to see what type of mode they have for the Super Skrull, if any.

            Absolutely epic looking table. You guys continue to trump yourselves time and time again. The bar is already set so high, and you just keep raising it.

            Dirty secret: Since I DL'ed Pinball FX2 in January...NOTHING ELSE...has been played on my 360. At all. What can I say? I love this ****.

              Thanks Mel! It looks like a feature packed table--guess I'll get started on a guide.


              By the way, was the purpose of the poll to receive the least amount of votes?

              I checked the website a few days before the poll vanished and remember the numbers:

              Captain America - 31% (slight lead)
              Hulk - 24%
              Fantastic Four - 14%
              Ghost Rider - 31%

              I hope this means Hulk is next.
              They took our pinball machines!
              Let's revolt, who's with me?
              Grab a pitchfork and come with Zen!

                Maybe they'll put the most time and effort in the top voted table to make it the best of the bunch and that's why it will be released last!?

                  I was wondering the same thing... I wonder if it had to do with the leaked screenshot posted up yesterday.

                  The table looks great guys. I especially like what looks to be the Human Torch ramp... the inversion that the ball goes thru looks really awesome

                  Also nice touch with Silver Surfer printed on the inside of the cabinet. I hope he makes an appearance in this table... but then again a whole table themed around him would be pretty sweet too He has been been one of my fav Marvel characters for a while. He is just so powerful.

                  I wonder how that FF disc will work in the upper left by Doctor Doom? Maybe it is some sort of ball lock.

                  Looks like there is going to be 5 main missions according to the table lights. 1 for each character including Doctor Doom. Galactus must be wizard mode. And 3 multiball modes... Fantastic Four-ball, Sign Multiball, and of course Clobberin' Mulitball

                    Good stuff, Zen. The table looks great.

                    Re the poll, I still think we'll see all 4 of those tables (and more) staggered over time. Given the production times involved, I'd wager spacebux* that all 4 tables were in production, or at least pre-production prior to the poll.

                    Testing and QA may impact the release schedules of individual tables. Some (e.g. Captain America or HULK) may need more testing, re-design, engineering and balancing than others.

                    Which is fine by me. I'd much rather see a game that has been balanced and finessed, even if late, than one that has been forced-released to a schedule. (Crysis 2, looking at you now...)

                    Anywaaay, I'm looking forward to this table. It looks like the pinball term "sinkhole" will have to be redefined!

                    Zen, I'm being greedy here, but could you give us a rough timeline for Paranormal's release? Should we expect it before or after FF?

                      Ook? I missed that.


                      Sige Multiball (sp? cant quite make it out on the pics), and of course Clobberin' Mulitball
                      Sign Multiball, I believe. Presumably the big "4" circle sign/symbol in the upper left, where Doctor Doom is standing.

                        Like the other Marvel tables, I have zero interest in the theme, but am still looking forward to this new table

                        The youtube vid has 52 dislikes, most likely people who failed to read the title of the video.

                          Wow, great looking table. I can see how pinball FX2 has been collecting the MS space bucks.

                            The screenshot was just titillation. The promotional video and official release date (May 17th) are evident of Zen's planning. The table had to be finished at least a month ago in order to be certified and prepped by Microsoft.

                            It seemed obvious we would be getting all four considering Zen's enthusiasm about the Marvel IP. I figured there were already basic designs for each table and the winner would be prioritized. Evidently not since the poll vanished and was never mentioned again.

                            I'm guessing politics won since the press release mentioned it's the fiftieth anniversary of the Fantastic Four. However, Captain America is sixty. Maybe it will be released mid-July to coincide with the movie. Ghost Rider would make a fitting autumn release. Hulk turns fifty next year.

                              F4 was always going to have a table sinces its one of Marvels best know IPs but yeh I agree that most likely Cap won the poll so his table is given extra time to be as epic as possible.

                                I totally agree. I'm a huge Silver Surfer fan. It's definitely nice to see him here, but a table just for him would be... cosmic!
