    Hello all,



    1. I see allot of people requesting Tron, but personally I would actually rather see a Daft Punk themed music table. There are already tables out there(like the ACDC table) that allow you to choose a song at the beginning, and that Song changes the rules of the table. I say Daft Punk because im a huge fan, and Sony is feeling pretty generous in the indie direction as of late so Im sure they could help you guys out with licensing issues. Could be awesome playing a table featuring Robot Rock, Around the world, or maybe a few tracks from Random Access Memories.

    As always though I also look forward to seeing your original tables, and you guys have put out some awesome work.
    Nice idea! I think if Zen do make a table with a band theme it would be refreshing if it wasn't a rock/metal band. I can't see it happening though. Still, a Daft Punk table gets a big thumbs up from me.

      I'd say a Music Theme involves way to much individual preference to be a success with any majority.
      No matter which Genre you picked, you'd end up with a minority loving it, and a majority grimacing at the prospect of it.

      Not good from a Sales point of view for Zen.

        Depends really, going with artists with global fanbases I think mitigates some of the risk, even more so if Sony is willing to help out with licsencing. Obviously there will always be personal preference with invidual groups, but they could do a couple of tables featuring different genres if this sort of thing would even Be possible. Daft Punk has been around along time now, lots of people love them around the world, so I dont think it would be that big of a risk.

        Maybe Ms.Bomb can comment on how difficult it would be. In terms of stating personal preference it would not be any different then putting stuff like Marvel, or Star Wars up there. They do it because the properties have enough appeal overall.

          Very good point, Nik. Everyone has different taste in music. While I'm pretty much open to anything (country included), I can't stand punk metal. That would drive me insane. Besides getting the license for some musical groups would be costly and may be unattainable.

            Well in this case if Zen wanted to do a successful Tron table they would likely want to go with a Legacy table, and they would need licsense Daft Punks music anyway since they are responsible for the soundtrack.

            Stating things like personal preference would nix lots of ideas, anime, movies, games, books, tv, so using that as a reason that music tables should not happen does not make allot of sense. Anime would be even more difficult considering the state of anime publishing in the US.

              Believe it or not, you could offend people with music more so than other genres. The music community is more divided than people think. Not everyone likes hip hop, country, or rock.

              Animes are widely popular, but depending on who the franchise is with can determine an expensive license amongst other barriers.

              A Tron themed table would be cool. "Themed" being the key word here. That way Zen can continue to use their own music (which is epic btw) without having to acquire extra licenses.

                  I can picture the ball giving off an exclamation point now.

                    That classic sound! I have it as an alert sound for my text messages.

                    • This thread hasn't been updated in a while and I'm bored so....

                      I have an original idea for a table. I would like a table based on beards and curly, handlebar mustaches. It could have a couple of ramps that have that perfect curl to them. And it shouldn't be a goofy table. It should be very regal and gentlemanly. I haven't thought much beyond this right now so forgive me. Maybe I can flesh out the details if Zen is interested

                      Table Wishlist: Lord of the Rings, God of War, Final Fantasy VII, The Legend of Zelda, and Marvel's Archangel.

                      • Casino style table

                        I had posted this back in the Zen Pinball 1 threads but still would love to see Zen 2 take on this "original" style table. It got a good buz in that thread so I just wanted to keep the dream alive!

                        I have been thinking of a table idea that would bring the best of what Vegas does flawlessly and pinball all together in one. "Progressive" slots / casino style theme! Just think, online global score multiplier effecting even a single player match!

                        Here are some of my very basic ideas:

                        - Slot machine that has different style pulls. One to take a chance on a global points "pot of gold" or random slot winnings.

                        - To keep true the idea that pinball is about skill and not "luck" you would have to of course wager amounts of your currently earned points to play the mission.

                        - it could have so many themes that it almost could take 2 tables, cards, dice, slots, etc... The only reason I bring it up that way is you could use a much larger section of the table as a 4 sided flip board. (Much like on the real life table "The Machine" - Bride of Pinbot. The idea being, instead of the basic design of that table, this casino one could have different games of poker or different games all together on each side.


                        Just an idea!

                        Thanks for reading!

                        Paul

                        • A new table pack and a new table

                          Il could be nice to see Star Trek Theme Table
                          The original STar Trek
                          Star Trek The Next Generation (This one with Q (Many aspects can be explore))
                          Star Trek Voyager (This one with the Borg trying to stop Voyager to reach the Alpha Quadrant)

                          The other could be The Addams Family based on the latest tv series.

                          These could be nice and very popular.

                          • My Ideas

                            I have been playing Zen Pinball on my Mac for the last month or so now and i must say i am a big fan and i really enjoy playing all the tables have some more so than others .

                            Here's a few ideas for some tables i have.

                            A Noir table - I am a big fan of the Noir genre and i would love a table about the genre where you would be a private investigator, the missions of the game would be various cases and each phase would be a different stage of the investigation, it could be done in a serpia like tone full of noir based imagery on the table and have the background of the table in a bar or diner and the music can consist of jazz music.

                            A Daredevil Table.

                            Millennium Falcon - this would be awesome i would love one of the minigames on the table to be the Tie-Fighter Shoot Out from A New Hope and i want to hear "Laugh it Up Fuzzball" as it's game over

                            Army of Darkness

                            Aliens - i have so many ideas for this one and it would be suitable for most Zen Pinball Players to play one of the missions is you have limited shots in the Pulse Rifle and you have to take out some of the dreaded Xenomorph's that are crawling over the tables attempting to take out the bumpers ( like they took out the power in the film and the final one where you take out the Queen you would have to hit certain bumpers to open the air lock to send her into the void of space ! i know it may never happen but one can dream and having James Horner's score is a must.

                            Batman - I hope that you guys can get the DC license this would simply be amazing so many possibilities with it from so many stories and characters you could even do tables of the villains i would love a Two-Face one !

                            • Okay lets get serious ! There is only one real license i really really really really like to see on Zen Pinball 2.

                              It´s moth***** Game of Thrones of course !!!!! Just imagine all the possibilities, the tables .. oh my holy god ! With the talent from Zen Studios this should be a instant hit !!! I don´t know if you had ever the chance to snap that license Zen Studios but you did such a great job with the Marvel and Star Wars license that this MUST happen, no matter what it cost !

                              My dream tables / themes of that license would be in no particular order:

                              Jon Snow Table. Begins with Eddard "The Starks has manned the wall since thousand years. And you are a Stark. You may have not my name but you have my blood." Table plays the whole Jon Snow arc till season 3.

                              Daenarys Table. Begins with Viserys "The bravest man don´t kill dragons, the bravest man ride on them" Table plays the whole Daenarys Targaryan arc till season 3. This table could be pretty epic with the 3 dragons and all the side battles.

                              House Lannister Table. Begins with Tywin "Lannisters always pays his depts". This table could focus on Kingslanding and how the Lannisters play a big role in the whole 5-king-war. For example Tyrion and the Blackwater fight. All Lannisters should be somehow included: Jaime, Cersie, Tywin and Joffrey maybe even Tommen and Myrcella. Fun Hint: When ball is lost Tywin says "Lannisters don´t act like fools" It fits just perfect.

                              House Stark Table. Begins with "Winter is coming" ofc Play the whole Stark arc till season 3. Robb, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Catleyn and Eddard all of them available at one table. Jon Snow only as sidekick since he has his own table and he is not a Stark.

                              House Baratheon Table. This is kinda tricky because i don´t know if you should focus only on Stannis or make the whole story of all three brothers including Robert and Renley. But Lady Melisandre and the rightful claiming of the iron throne from Stannis makes them a perfect theme.

                              There are many more possibilities. This whole Ice and Fire universe screams for some pinball madness. With the fantastic HBO adaption of the books you have already a rich arsenal of audio and video material. Just think about it Zen. With this license you could truly become Kings.

                              Do it Do it Do it Do it Do it Do it Do it

                              • I'd love to see a Cowboy Bebop table! The launcher could be Spike hand of course "BANG!" and would have great potential for missions such as collecting bountys.

                                I also saw that Kingdom Hearts and Megaman were suggested. Both would have nice uses for powerups; Kingdom Hearts being its keyblade and Megaman, if being based off of the original, can use the original 6 robot masters as the missions, each giving a power up for statagy on the next boss. It could also have Willy at the end. If based on a later game, it could include Rush as part of the multiball. And seeing how Zen has worked with Capcom for the Street Fighter board, this may be possible.

                                Another suggestion I've seen on here was Dragonball (and some for Naruto) which made me think that a Shonen Jump pack would be great and could include those two as well as One Piece or Bleach. And seeing as Shonen Jump loves doing crossovers themselves, most commonly with the combination of Dragonball and One Piece/Naruto or all together, like in Battle Stadium D.O.N or the Jump Super Stars series. It could be a great crossover board.
