    I said in that other thread that I wasn't interested in any more Marvel tables (I'm just not a fan of many of them), but a Dr Strange table I would buy so long as it has a strong magic/fantasy feel to it. That way I can pretend it isn't another super-hero table.


    It's also awesome to hear that there are 12 new tables in the works?!? YES!
    Fantastic Four + Dr. Strange + Civil War + possibly 12 other tables = Epic. I included FF because I never played it.

    I guess another interesting "Where is ZP2 going?" question would be: Will we ever see a table that isn't regulation/standard size? Or how about a table with another whole table underneath it (make it a fantasy theme with adventurers going in the Underdark or something).

      Man I'm sure Zen got some awesome ideas already for the 12 NON Marvel tables alongside of the Marvel tables as well. I'm excited to hear about them in the future. I won't even lie though. I'm a bit more excited to see what type of tables the WiiU will have and if any exclusives will be coming their way.

        Haha yeah I'm sure ZEN has something too. Rafie maybe you should work at ZEN and then come back and tell us LOL!


        To be honest Wii U might even be the best version!

          The Wii U, right? I have already read that several developers are underwhelmed by the specs of the machine. The Xbox 720 and The PS4 or PS Orbitus will annihilate it....not to start a war but facts are facts. The big N has been behind Sony and M$ since the PS2 and the Xbox...I think these machines will hold more capabilities and a lot more ram and power to do things with....just my 2 cents....can't wait for new table announcements!

            Man it would be awesome to work for a company like Zen. Then I wouldn't be able to speculate what's going on anymore. In most cases I would already know.

            That's not the type of conversation I was going for. I'm not here to say what platform is the best. My only reason for even stating anything about the WiiU is because Nintendo will finally have a Zen pinball title outside of the 3DS. Also the possibility of having Nintendo exclusive tables is really a HUGE win here. Not interested in the "hardware" discussion.

                Iwata already said that Nintendo will not pay for exclusives for the Wii U. However, that doesn't mean that they wouldn't let a third party studio like Zen work with one of their characters for a low licensing fee. A 4 pack of Nintendo pinball tables could easily be the best selling downloadable on the Wii U/3DS, but some random Kirby table thrown under the Zen Pinball title probably wouldn't give Nintendo or Zen any great additional exposure even though it'd definitely be their highest selling DLC table for Zen Pinball on Nintendo consoles. I don't plan on buying a 3DS or WiiU, so I'd just have to sit back in envy.

                Edit: I guess the conclusion i'm drawing is that a Nintendo exclusive table isn't a definite by any means. Microsoft has been known to push hard for exclusive content and Sony tries as well. Zen benefits most by having their content spread across all consoles so they need strong incentives to spend resources on exclusives. I'm positive Zen has Nintendo exclusives on their mind, but it's really up to Nintendo if that dream becomes a reality. There might actually be a higher probability that Nintendo would want Zen to create a Nintendo published pinball game than to allow Zen to create a Nintendo themed table or two for Zen Pinball.

                    It's a cartoon from the creator of Sealab 2021. Archer is like a cross between James Bond and a frat guy whose flunking college. If you have FX, I recommend watching a few episodes. It's not for everyone, but I find it funny/entertaining and it would make a good theme for a pinball table even for those who do not recognize the character.

                        *rolls eyes* No... LOL.

                        You like Tim & Eric and weird stuff like that, I highly recommend you watch Archer. You'd love it.

                          I'd like to see a pinball table based on a pinball table based on itself. It'd kind of be like taking a picture of yourself in the mirror of you taking a picture of yourself.
                          That or something with cute little pandas.
