    I'd totally buy it just to show my sister if anything, but I'm sure I'd actually play it too

      Lol, Hasbro would just looooove that idea. Zen would also probably make a killing, but as I said above, given Zen's recent offerings, I wouldn't hold much hope that any licensed or original table will be amazing.

      I don't mind having Marvel tables, it's just that NOW most of the tables in Zen Pinball are Marvel tables. And clearly from the cries here, people want something else.

      I think Zen have clearly run out of ideas for boards with the Marvel series and should focus on something different for awhile.

      Again, I can only base this on the demos of the tables, it's not my fault that Zen have really short time limits on them.

        Run out of ideas? How can you, with millions of comics? It's not that, its just that we don't know what's in the contract between Zen and Marvel. There might be a certain number of tables that were supposed to be produced, who knows. Anyways, like others have said in this thread, Zen has 12 non-Marvel tables in the works, so there's nothing to fret about, really.

          Pffft, I bet you have ponies on your computer somewhere.

          I wouldn't say no to a MLP board, I'm not a serious fan by any stretch, I just like the idea and concept of the Lauren Faust remake. The series itself is pretty bad and merchandise even worse (lol, they still look like G1 Ponies). In the end it's an interesting distraction every once in awhile.

          I wouldn't say no to some anime-themed boards either, but you have to pick the license carefully to make sure you can do something interesting with it. Yuri Yuri or Nichijou would be a bad idea. But Sgt Frog or even Cardcaptor Sakura would have enough material and action to create fairly decent tables.

          In the end, this is a discussion for the Ideas Thread. Something Zen seems to be ignoring imo :P

            Keep in mind that it can take up to 9 months to make a table, from what I remember hearing on these boards, so I'd say it's too early to assume that they are ignoring our suggestions

              I'm massively burnt out on the Marvel theme. I just can't stand them any more and don't even consider them "real" Zen tables. I couldn't even finish all 3 balls on Civil War because I found it so unappealing, just exited out during my 2nd ball. Dr. Strange I might be interested in simply because there's a slight chance that it won't look like a "Marvel table" (like Blade).

              I hope to God there really is only one Marvel table left because honestly it doesn't even matter to me how great the table design might be, if it's Marvel then I'm pretty much not interested. But I would pay them triple for the 360 tables (or more themes like them).

              Please Zen, give us interesting tables again.

                You got jokes....

                I would still play the hell out of a My Little Pony table though.

                Anything Zen makes pinball wise is a sure fire win.

                      Yeah... I'm so over it as well. Just the theme that is... each table I still play on merit of the layout and game modes and difficulty. I have no idea what is going on in Civil War, I have gotten the Achievement (5 min), beaten the wizard mode once and scored a billion (there is a trick involved where you can score high without much risk... lets see who else can figure it out ). So... that is me basically done with the table. I'll still play it a couple of times more just to at least complete each and every game mode (of which there really aren't many) and play through wizard mode twice (once as each side)... and that will be it... unless I try to get a Billion without using any tricks .

                      I love many of the Marvel tables - because they are quality and a challenge and really do something different like Moon Knight, X-Men, Infinity Gauntlet, Fear Itself, F4, Blade - each one is unique and challenging with interesting gameplay dynamics. So... give us a bit of a break (like a really long one!) and bring on some other themes... even My little pony would do

                      When is the next table coming Zen... hopefully by Christmas and hopefully it is non-Marvel.

                          I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way about how Marvelous things have become lately, but please, seriously, don't use my thread to bash Zen. They do more for pinball than everyone else put together these days. Their quality control is astounding, and they obviously spend a lot of time trying to come up with new things. The new Civil War table might not be my favorite, for example, but I can see how much work and thought went into constructing it.

                          The point I was trying to make here was just that we've wandered so far down the Marvel Marvel Marvel path that it feels like everything else is being eclipsed. ZP2 doesn't have the foundation of true Zen tables that Pinball FX2 does, so it can be a little overwhelming. I've never stopped buying the new tables as soon as I could, because I believe in what Zen doing, even if I know/suspect I'm going to be back on Tesla, Earth Defense, and Moon Knight an hour later.

                          I'd agree that it has become a little rampy lately! When I play the older stuff, most of the tables feel like they have more variety in the mechanics. I miss things like the Junkyard wrecking ball in Secrets of the Deep, and the Twilight Zone-y magnet thing on Tesla.

                          I would love to see some girly tables, whether it was the ponies, Miku, Barbie, or something original. Anything bright and colourful fills my Vita's OLED screen with love and happiness. (One of the reasons I continually lobby for Extreme on Vita, incidentally, aside from adoring the table.)

                            Ummm, wut? Don't get me wrong, I have every table, and have been playing since ZP1, and have had consoles since the original ATARI (still have one)... but come on! have you ever seen a game filled with more bugs than any of zen's? ZP1, Marvel, ZP2... bugs bugs bugs, the worst being game-ending glitches. At least there aren't as many with ZP2, but I couldn't even play single player anymore on Marvel after having game after game where I would end up with no ball on the table and have to turn the PS3 off... bugs vary from the scoring system (game points, pro points, multiplayer points) to in game glitches, to ball losing bugs, to game ending glitches... sorry, I couldn't walk away from that comment. I will continue to play and buy tables, knowing that it will be far from perfect.

                                I'd play the hell out of a Jem and the Holograms table. Outrageous! :P
