  • First Impressions on Bethesda table pack

    Overall the tables are great yet I can see that these tables won't be as easy to get into as most of Zens collection. That is to say that there is so much going outside any normal pinball table. Not to say the Zen doesn't go out of the box. For these tables you'll need to scroll through the table guides in order to somewhat get a grasp on what you'll need to do.

    For Fallout I found the in-game menus confusing. There should be an easier way to get out of the shop rather than scroll using flippers to get to the 'Exit the shop' icon. Frustrating as if you go into the shop without any credit (or whatever the currency is) than you have to constantly scroll scroll and scroll. Overall the table is interesting enough for it's own unique design. I have played this one the least as it was my first table I tried.

    Doom - I like the fact that you can choose between to difficulties. Nightmare is indeed that. No ball save in the beginning. The scores do increase. Definitely a table to hone your pinball skills. Needless to say the table isn't clear on what exactly you need to do without going into the table guide much to what I've mentioned earlier. The 'missions' isn't timed which I found interesting. What I do like about this table though is that the mult-balls aren't as easily accessible as some of many Zen's tables. The left or right sink-holes aren't the easiest shot. Getting the ball into those holes several times will start 1 of 2 of the multi-balls.

    Skyrim - RPG aspect like Epic Quest. YES please. Though not as charming as Epic Quest it has interesting mechanics. Most may steer clear of this table as there menus galore. You can equip magic spells, Weapons, armor. upgrade different skills. So much to delve into. would you want to equip magic spells or weapons? as you can't use both.

    Gripe- The only thing I don't like about this table is the way to get Multiball. get the ball into the bumpers and hit them a certain amount of time. Then you lock them into the sinkhole that opens up. Do that 4 times and multi-ball starts. shoot lanes and raise the jackpots then shoot balls into the center (Where the balls came out) for super Jackpots. It's almost as if you can grind that if you want. All in all it's a minor gripe as exploring other things and gaining side-quests seem to increase your scores.

    My favorite of the pack is definitely Skyrim by far. The others I need to delve into more.

    Thanks again for another great pack.

    Also had some fun with this table. I also didn't like the fact that you have to scroll through the whole list of items in the shop before you can leave...

    Definately my favourite, although sometimes the missions are quite unclear. And I also ran into a bug on this table: During one of the plays, the music just stopped completely. I only had SoundFX. I know the music goes on/off a bit during the track, but in this instance I didn't havr any music untill the ball dropped out of the table.

    My least favourite table. To much happening that doesn't involve pinball and I experience it as disturbing items during gameplay.

    Anyway, will spend some more time on the tables next weekend

      Which system were you playing on when this happened?

        I just tried to purchase the Bethesda table pack on PS4 and it shows installed on the PSN Store, and doesn't show under my notifications / download history. I checked under system restore licenses which didn't do the trick, but I also noticed that it doesn't show that anything downloaded. Am I trying to install it, but its not really on their servers yet? (PS I also fully rebooted my ps4)

        Thanks in advance!

          Do you have the most recent version of the game installed?

            yea I tried that as well, I know it must be updated because i now show the updated main menu categorization.

            I did a "check for updates" on the ps4 and it says its up to date.

              Just saw your other post, so the answer is yes Does it help if you hit the import button?

                ok.. what did you do??? I just turned on my ps4 for the 3rd time and now it triggered that it was available ( and its attempting to download now) I am in EST, don't know if that has something to do with their release times.

                Anyhow, now all is good! thanks for being there as always!!

                    On a plain PS4...
                    BTW: Love what you did on the main screen. I can now recognize the table-icons again

                      Oh man, I just watched the trailer and these tables look soooooo good. I'm dying to play them but I made a promise to myself before Women of Power came out that I'd wait and not buy any new tables until ZP2 comes to PSVR so that I'll have new tables to experience for the first time on that. Of course, back then I was hoping it'd be a launch game. It's definitely getting harder to wait.
                      I know they're not going to give a date until they're ready but I wish we could at least know if when it comes out it will have all these new tables available or only select older ones. I'm going to be kicking myself if it's the latter.
                      Keep up the great work Zen people!

                      Edit: Where the heck have I been? I just saw posts about PBFX being on PSVR. Guess I haven't used my PS4 much lately having Forza Horizon 3 and Dishonored 2 on Xbox One.
                      Going now to DL and play some VR Pinball. Man, I'm so excited!

                        Sorry! I'll post as soon as we have more VR stuff confirmed. I hope you enjoy them once you do get a chance to play

                          Nudge bug on Doom?!

                          Im loving Doom but I've ran into an annoying bug which basically causes the nudge mechanic to stop working on that particular ball. A moment ago it cost me the Wizard Mode of Doom.

                            Strange Flipper bug on Skyrim

                            So I'm holding the ball on the right flipper, and a few seconds later it disappears to the bumpers. (vita)

                            p.s. Skyrim is the best table, Doom second, fallout depressingly last.
                            Table wishlist: Tremors, Regular Show, Orphan Black, Lost Girl, Ren & Stimpy, Futurama, Hack/Slash.
                            Loki (More villians)
                            Moon Knight - werewolves story arc
                            Brainscan - Trickster theme.
                            Critters, Tucker and Dale Vs Evil, Gremlins, Chucky.
                            SAW (billy doll)
                            B-movie horror/monsters.
                            My Babysitters a Vampire, MONSTER HUNTER, Darkstalkers, Chocobos, Goosebumps.
                            Fullmoon Studios themes (i.e. Puppet Master, Subspecies, KillJoy, Gingerdead Man, Trancers)

                            Yeah I don't want much do I? >.>

                              Do you remember which mode were you playing when the music stopped? There are some modes where the music is turning into ambient noises e.g. Recharge, Hell and Back or Lazarus Lab. If you encounter this problem again you can be sure by turning down the SFX and Physics volumes. Thanks for the report and the kind words!
