    I finally saw the movie yesterday and it made me want the tables more!

    Considering the trophies leaked yesterday on PSN, I'm assuming that the wait won't be much longer, I'm hoping for next week!

    Default Released Tomorrow?

    I read that it would be released in conjunction with the Avengers Chronicles 4 table pack, and i know that the new tables are due to be released tomorrow (Fri 18th May), though there is a possibility that they will release the tables then release zen 2 upgrade the week after on Fri 25th, what I really want to know is, if i own both Zen & Marvel and have all DLC can i delete the original games from my PS3 and still have them on Zen 2.

    Sorry guys, these will not be released tomorrow. We are releasing Avengers at the same time as ZP2, but we do not have a release date for them at this time. We will know our date about a week or so ahead of time, and I will post it as soon as we get it.

    Please see our FAQ for more details about how the update from Zen/Marvel Pinball to Zen Pinball 2 will work and feel free to ask questions if you are still unsure: http://forum.zenstudios.com/showthread.php?t=4158

    I don't know where you got that information from, but you can tell that date is bogus. Sony only updates the PS Store on Tuesdays (USA) / Wednesdays (everywhere else).

    The most likely date is going to be May 29/30, if it's going to come out in May. It's not going to be next week, since Zen usually gets the release date a week or two in advance.

    Default Pinball Premonition??

    So I'm driving 125 km/hr down the highway 401 here in Ontario, Canada this evening, when I come upon this dude in a black pick-up truck. He was hauling TWO actual pinball machines, lying on their backs, no legs, with the front ends pointed straight up in the air. I thought "now this guy is as impatient as the rest of us" for the release of ZP2. I slowed down for a slow pass....checked out the two machines he was hauling but I couldn't see what the names were on them....but they were definitely OLD SCHOOL machines. As I passed I flashed him a knowing "thumbs up" and left him to his pinball glory.
    I took this as a premonition that Zen Pinball 2 would be available when I got home. Sadly it was not to be. Sigh.

    I'm finishing Mortal Kombat 9 on my VITA.... I need some pinball now, or I might start playing Mortal Kombat on the real life to ease my tension, RAWWWRRRR!

    but really.... May is coming to an end and the "coming soon" is getting old, we need some more real life based info like: "A cat ate our mouses and we don't know the windows shortcut keys!"

    THERE:

    Shortcut Keys Description
    Alt + F File menu options in current program.
    Alt + E Edit options in current program
    F1 Universal Help in almost every Windows program.
    Ctrl + A Select all text.
    Ctrl + X Cut selected item.
    Shift + Del Cut selected item.
    Ctrl + C Copy selected item.
    Ctrl + Ins Copy selected item
    Ctrl + V Paste
    Shift + Ins Paste
    Home Goes to beginning of current line.
    Ctrl + Home Goes to beginning of document.
    End Goes to end of current line.
    Ctrl + End Goes to end of document.
    Shift + Home Highlights from current position to beginning of line.
    Shift + End Highlights from current position to end of line.
    Ctrl + Left arrow Moves one word to the left at a time.
    Ctrl + Right arrow Moves one word to the right at a time.


    Now that all is sorted out can I download my Zen Pinball 2 tomorrow?

    Haha this is great! Welcome to the forum by the way! We should have our release date in the next couple of days, just need to confirm with Microsoft & Sony!

    Also, have you finished the Challenge Tower? Seriously so frustrating, haha!

    Finally!!



    And as far as Mortal Kombat... I was playing mainly on the PS3 but also have it for the 360 (super nerd). Have the Arcade sticks too lol.... if you are anyone else is still playing that online I am all about it. The guy who I have matches with is leaving for The Mars Volta tour (he's their soundman) for the Summer so I have literally no one to have matches with on MK that I know online! I rarely play online for that reason, but dig the community here so if you or anyone else is up for some MK action.. I am all about it!

    Now THAT would be a bad ass table using the current physics and graphics engines Zen has in place with their newer tables. Could create a table using multiple characters from the MK universe with Khan obviously the guy to bring down. Different missions would help unlock the special moves of each, in addition to a finishing move that would give a tiered bonus as each one unlocks leading to the final mission of bringing him down once all missions have been completed. Such a rich universe to tap from. Surprised actually in light of the Street Fighter table this one has not come to be.

    Rant over lol

    Where were you driving 125 km/hr on the 401 ? I drive to Toronto everyday for work (courier service) and never get to go that fast on it except for holidays maybe.

    I know there are a few people around here who play it, I haven't had much time with it but I do have the fightsticks for it as well! I know ShoryukenToTheChin is really into fighting games like MK and Street Fighter, I'm sure he'd be willing to play If I have time after E3 and all the craziness of the next few weeks, I might set up some time to play with people from the community. I talk to you guys all day long but never get to play! Time to change that

    I was driving westbound somewhere between Gananoque and Kingston if I recall correctly. Traffic is frequently cruising at 120-130 around that stretch. Though anything under 120 seems to be safe from a speeding ticket.

    Default Time Difference

    Been checking if the dates have been posted yet but then i realised if this is an American based forum it's still quite early, its 17:22 here in England and a scorching 26C but for you guys (depending on area) it's only 22 past 9 or 10
    it really would be a doubly glorious day if the dates are posted this afternoon (your Time).
    I'll Check back later.

    ShoryukenToTheChin,

    I'm not a pro, but I'm a vet in fighting games. I played MK2 and 3 professionally back in '94-95 (yeah I was only 12 and 13), and I placed 1st in MK2 and 4th in MK3 in Columbus, OH over 214 people. I'm also a SF guy. I'm very rusty, but I pick up pretty fast. We can have some casuals when you have the time in the summer. Just don't beat me down to bad. LOL

    That was 18 years ago man. I'm not the way I use to be. I'm 30 by the way.

    I assure you I'm..."better than average" now. Trust me. You'll be the one dumbing down your skills for me.

    Well alas I don 't see it coming next week. There hasn't been much news about the release or anything marvel related so I don't think it will be out on the 29th.

    'In May' Looks hopeless.

    I can understand delays and I know Most of us here are anxious as heck. We haven't even seen the table previews of Infinity Gauntlet or Fear Itself yet.

    Great , I forgot to submit my reply last time and only now that I came back from a few days off I saw my reply "hanging" there XD

    So yeah, a bit late but here it is:

    I'm at challenge nş 175, but I don't think my VITA will survive to the end, most probably she will kiss a wall before.

    On the "exclusive" VITA challenges I'm only at challenge 5 (saving that one for last), I know there's a "Kill 5 Shao Khans" (OMG!) challenge on that tower, which scares the hell out of me, but it seems you can "punch" him in the helmet with the touch-screen to help out, so there's a little help if you get to that challenge.

    And btw, ShoryukenToTheChin também és Portuguęs pá?

    You can see gameplay videos of all 4 new tables in the related videos on the right hand side of this site.

    It doesn't help that Zen decided to showcase these tables at E3. This give Sony and Microsoft an excuse to delay back the release. Showcasing already released games at E3 isn't that appealing. It's better if they are released during or after E3 and Sony/Microsoft know that.

    We planned on having these at E3 even when we thought they'd be out during the first half of the month, E3 has nothing to do with the delay, I assure you.

    On topic: Do you really think a MK table could work here?
    Yeh I really would like to see an MK Table for sure, if Zen can make SF work why not MK. Il shoot you a friend request later btw m8.

    Default Zen 2 + Tables @ E3

    I don't think Zen Studios have any say over the powers that be (Microsoft/Sony), maybe Microsoft/Sony want to announce the dates themselves at E3 while they are showcasing them, looks likely to be released between 5th/6th to 12th/13th June, I'm wondering how much power Microsoft/Sony have over Zen, is it a case of "you release them when we say, not untill?", does Barbie have an update for us?

    ZP2 was not released on time because it simply wasn't ready. Same with Avengers Chronicles, and we wanted them to come out around the same time.The delay has absolutely nothing to do with E3. We should have our date confirmed by Sony and Microsoft next week.

    This trend to rush games and deliber them half-assed (we should be credited as beta testers in half the crap "big" companies put out these days) is getting ridiculously out of hand.
    It's a good excuse to overprice already in disc DLC too...

    Take your time and polish the game. A couple of weeks is not going to kill anybody.

    I agree, I'd rather put out a game that works than shove it out the door before it is ready. Thanks for understanding

    Although I'm disappointed, I do understand. There are games out there that should not have been released. Although there are some companies that may not have a choice as their publishers want the product out and into the masses regardless. *cough SWTOR *cough

    I guess we still have to wait a couple more weeks for these to come out. Also I guess we might have new of upcoming tables in E3 as well. Or at least I think that might be the plan.

    I get the point now, it would be awful to wait and then get an awful game at the end, better to leave it and make sure it;s as good as it can be.

    incidentally Barbie, this might be really jumping the gun as we don't have ZP2 yet, but I read that FX3 is in development due for release in 2013, does that mean we could have a ZP3 or have you put what you've newly discovered in terms of graphics and physics for FX3 into ZP2 while you've got the chance to do it?

    just checked the ZP2 FAQ again & i think from what we can read there, about the Scores,
    they will only go back to zero if you deleate you're old ZP1 & MP.....

    I just might have to delete both MP and ZEN only because I don't have much space on my drive. Plus I need room for more tables from both Zen and Pinball Arcade.

    Also what about phoenix Comic con? Is there any presence there? I have to work this weekend (Have to because the hospitality industry is so slow out here in PHX)

    Scores will not transfer from Zen/Marvel pinball to ZP2, but they will stay intact in their own right. I don't think deleting them will delete your scores either, that stuff is saved in the save data from what I know.

    I'm going to miss seeing my old Marvel high scores on ZP2. At one point, I had much more time to play and was able to achieve some good scores.
    Now with ZP2, I barely have time to play and I certainly dont have the time for the 7-9 hour tables like Wolverine.
    But maybe over time I'll be able to post some of my high scores again.

    Default Checking in the morning

    I know from her profile that Barbie is in SF, so I don't ever expect to get my release date early in the morning. Still here at am checking at 7am hoping that the allmighty moderator, stumbling home from a late night of boozing gets a late night message from MS and drunk dials an update before passing out. Stay hydrated B, and don't be afraid to pass along the news at any hour or any condition. Clearly we are hopeful well beyond reason that our date will be revealed every time we check.

    And even if you delete the game save. The leader boards will still have your highest scores recorded.

    We won't get a release date until Tuesday at the earliest for a couple of other reasons.

    1.) It's the weekend, Zen's offices and Sony's offices are closed. Although, Barbie does pop up here over the weekend, she is probably doing it from home.

    2.) It's a holiday weekend, so the offices will be closed on Monday too.

    1. Barbie is actually a prisoner at Zen's offices. She lives in a cage and they feed her eels and fishheads.

    2. I know it is a holiday weekend, but thanks for smashing my optomisim.

    We would likely stagger them, and release ZP3, or whatever we ended up creating after ZP2 (weird to even think about that haha) much later after FX3. That's just judging from the previous releases of PFX, 1 & 2, and ZP 1 & 2.

    That would be awesome to release a PBFX3 and ZP3 at the same time. ZP2 is definitely warranted though. We're behind on the physics. LOL To have a simultaneous release for new platforms for both consoles with 4 different tables for each would really be frickin' SWEET!!

    while waiting.... Check out some gameplay for all 4 tables. World War Hulk being his longest session. (Aside form Epic Quest)

    http://www.twitch.tv/psnation/b/319581843

    Thank JasonC11 for the link and unexpected Stream

    My thoughts.


    World War Hulk does seem to have characteristics of Iron Man with the multiple ramp and loops abound. Like the difficulty of the Hulk Vs Iron man shot. That shot on the left looks pretty tough. All In all This table looks really interesting in that each ramp/loop need multiple hits in order to do the respective mission etc. Much like
    Iron Man. Might be my favorite of the bunch

    Fear itself.

    Very interesting table though he didn't play it that long. Seems like lot's of mission picking which character missions to do. The Magna loop looks very interesting how that incorporates into the game-play. Have to see for myself of course.

    Infinity Gauntlet.

    By far the most interesting out of the whole bunch. The alternative reality Gem is by the most interesting thing on the table. Reminds of Black Hole table from Gottlieb on the Pinball Arcade. That and there seems to be different colors associated with Gems. They obviously do different things but we still don't know.

    Avengers -

    Hard to describe what I saw on this table. Other than what we know each ball has bonuses depending on which one we use. Looks like there will be a 6 ball multi-ball looks fun.

    As far as physics. Watching him play Epic quest I did notice some improvement. Hard to tell though as we don't have this in our hands. We will know soon enough. Wish I had a chance to play like this guy. Who is this guy anyway? and How does he get to try this before anyone else? Most likely media related. Lucky him.

    Please don't say that. I absolutely HATE Black Hole. That is the worst table.

    Didn't mean to make you regress to a harsh time in your life. I thought because the flippers were on top. That's all I'm saying.

    I don't care for Black Hole either. I can't get into that table at all. My fave is Theater of magic and Ripley's. Medieval Madness and fun house Cirqus Votaire would be there as well whenever they release them. Looks like June will be a pinball Fans dream If you like both Zen And Pinball Arcade.

    If the announcement comes this week, which would hopefully mean its release is next week, that'd be best. It'll release on the Vita between Resistance and Gravity Rush/Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which gives it a perfect window for saturation (and for me to have time to really sink my teeth into it ).

    I'm stoked to be playing all my PS3 tables on my Vita soon, and I'm stoked for those Avengers tables as well. It's gonna' be great!

    If you don't know how to get the 3-ball multiball on Black Hole, read the instructions on how to and then concentrate on accomplishing that. This is the method I used to learn to love Black Hole. The table has only a few features, but it's so volatile that any misstep can lose a ball. Focusing on just getting that 3-ball multiball so that I can hit all the lower targets a ton and score a nest of extra balls makes the risk of a chaotic moment so deliciously intense.

    Yes, California is using Daylight Savings. It technically should be PDT right now and not PST.

    With the exception of a few states in Mountain Time (MST), the majority of the states in the USA participate in Daylight Savings.

    Default No Official Date

    I sent a tweet to Zen studios asking if they had an actual release date for ZP2 as nothing seems to have shown up here.

    the reply I got (selected and copied from the reply tweet) was:

    No official date for ZP2 yet, we're still in certification.

    I've been saying the same thing on here as well. By the way, you can ask here or on Twitter, I moderate/post for both

    No worries Pretty much anything that is Zen and can be commented on, I'm there. Unless its a PS Blog, usually Neil/Mel/Zsolt handle those.

    Default Dates Revealed at E3

    I've just been watching the video of ZP2 and the new tables that was posted a few posts ago further up the list, at 1:10:48 into the video the guy playing the new tables actually says the date will be revealed at E3.

    now I know Barbie said the release dates have nothing at all to do with E3 but why would he say that if it isn't true?

    Because at that point (last week), we had planned on having our date by E3. This might not be the case after all.

    I guess Pure speculation but the guy in that video said In his opinion it would be around E3. I know she said it doesn't have to do with E3 but it would be logical to announce it then since there will be many will be watching to see what's new. Good Advertising for them. I just wish they will just say it. As it it's mid week so it looks like we wont see the release on June 5th. Which is in the middle of E3. June 12th, 19th or 26th then.

    sigh I guess I'll have to play D3 until then I wanted something to pry me away from D3. New tables form either Zen or Pinball arcade will do that.

    Thanks Barbie, I was just wandering , by the way all of you guys at zen have done a really epic job, I mainly watch a little bit of a vid to get an idea of the look and gameplay, but right from the first table I was hooked.

    and I genuinely sat open mouthed with amazement can't wait to play them in 3D.

    I know! It's been such a roller coaster of getting my hopes up and then not getting our date for so long! But, I know it will just be that much better once we do release it.

    All to true Barbie, it's just making it that much sweeter for when Sony does announce it and gets it release ^^

    Default Release date

    I'm sorry but I think it's absolutely ridiculous that there is no word on release date for the new Marvel tables, particularly since one of them is a direct tie-in with the movie. I know that you're likely going to shuffle the blame onto certification or whatever, but this is a great disservice to your customers. This reeks of poor planning and worse execution. If you didn't know, then you should not have said anything.

    If it's not ready, then it's not ready...pure and simple. It's a disservice to throw out a release date, only to see it be pushed back. It's better to have the real release date and game at 100% ready for the customer than to throw it out to the public half-arsed. We are all a little upset about the release date, but there is nothing we can do, and if you want to believe their reasons or not, it's up to you.

    You would be correct, but we are waiting for a release DATE, not the game to be released tomorrow. Even if it's not ready, they are in the finish and it should not be too hard to make an estimation (even if it's a careful one) to set a target date.

    Alright, let's put this to rest already. Zen, to my knowledge, has never given anything other then general release windows for it's products. There are good reasons for this. Zen has expanded the number of platforms they support and with this comes more potential for bugs and delays. There are more approvals to be secured and we all know how MS and Sony are with that. Now throw in Apple and Android. I'm sure Zen wants to release across the spectrum of platforms within a small window. I'm also confident that if there were issues with development MS and Sony were fine with holding the release until during or after E3 to get more exposure for the game. Anything Avengers will be a big hit especially with the lack of a movie tie-in game (thankfully).

    So, with all that being said, the only honest mistake I think Zen made was giving May as the potential release month. My advice would be to stick with "Coming Soon" from now on. Besides all of us fans I'm quite positive everyone at Zen wants this product published and, more importantly, working properly across all platforms.

    I agree, it is ridiculous that we don't have a date yet. We've been publishing on digital platforms for about 5 years now, but I can tell you, each submission/certification process is unique. Once we submitted it, the time frame for the release was mid-May. Obviously that did not happen and we missed the window we wanted (as close to the movie release as possible). We kept waiting to hear back on a date, and Sony & MS kept pushing it back further because the game wasn't ready. I know it's frustrating for you guys to have to wait, but it's frustrating for us to submit a game and have it turned down because it isn't ready, then we have to go back in and fix the problem. I don't blame Sony or Microsoft though, I'd rather it go out later than expected than come out on time and full of bugs.

    We have been in the final stages for a while, but they kept finding things that needed to be fixed. It would be completely unfair to estimate because each week we would just be saying that it will be out in 2 weeks. 2 weeks would go by and we'd have nothing. I understand that you guys want a solid date, we do too. Digital distribution is a lot more of a guessing game than retail, they get their dates months and months before, while we usually get about a 2-3 week window. In situations like this, we have to just roll with it. It's definitely not ideal, but we just have to be patient.
