    Table looks good...

    Am out of work atm as I mentioned in my other thread so can't afford to buy it until I get a new job overly.

    This looks like a really fun table though; am genuinely excited to try it .

    I think there is an official 'trailer' that has yet to be revealed and I may have found it

    How very disappointing that this table turns out to be aimed at the one Pop Cap game my wife and I do not like. The demo showed the game to be very lack luster and WAY over priced for what you were doing on screen.

    But, *sigh*, at the end of the day, It's a Zen Studios table and will be an automatic purchase for both my wife and myself. It's just built on a game that we well never, ever own!

    Never played PvZ but the trailer looks good. As always, day 1 Zen purchase for me. It's been a great year and I've got near pinball overload! Tables are finally being added to TPA, and with a new PS3 I've got ZP2 on my radar (can't wait for that one). I also finally got the wife on board and added a real pinball machine to our house. :-) Great year for pinball.

    Viper I thought the same thing. But when I started playing I quickly became hooked, and so did my wife.

    Aw you beat me to it! Thanks snake. Really looking forward to this table. Looks like another one that has a good flow with many different mini modes plus the missions themselves. Man as much as I'm enjoying GW2, I will definitely give some time on this table as well as replay all of the tables in ZP2 with it's physics tweaks.

    Looks super cool. Appears to be lower scoring than Epic Quest.

    Oh I hear ya, LVPHoF, That's why we'll still buy any table Zen makes. The fun factor can drastically outweigh the theme.

    As long as Zen has a "Marvel License" why do they have to stick with Spandex wearing super-heroes? After all, Transformers comic is Marvel!!!!! hint wink hint wink.

    After playing too much of the last Marvel pack in such a short time I decided to take a break from pinball but this table looks sweet and I'll be picking it up day 1 as usual. Hopefully my skills haven't gotten rusty in the last couple of months.

    Looks like real good fun from the gameplay video and like it will be quite easy to keep the ball alive. I don't think even once in the video did the ball go down the outlanes (too lazy to watch again to confirm). Looks like you need to work for your points, but on the other hand it might also be one of the tables like many of Zen's recent tables that have a wizard mode that scores mega. I really don't mind that as it encourages players to play through to wizard mode.

    So, can't wait for the release date. Am on a bit of a holiday so will be able to give it a good shot when it comes out... can't wait to see if it has a deep scoring/strategy system.

    DUDE I'M EXCITED!!! I've never played PvZ before, so this is going to be a good showing for me. I always love what Zen does (except for Extreme *shrudders*) That PvZ table looks frickin' epic! I'm so stoked for this. I really am. I knew this was going to be a PvZ theme. I'm glad it is!

    Very nice. I'm looking forward to playing it on Wednesday.

    trivia: I watched the video on the blog page more closely to see if they used real machines on the live action part. The backglass has been masked on each, but you can see some details on the playfields and the machine fronts. The pvz table is Funhouse (see Rudy's head clearly at 15s), and the table on the right is a DataEast Star Wars (see R2D2 at 23s).

    Mpf. I still think a Peggle table is a terrible idea. Peggle already shares a lot in common with pinball, and it's the *differences* that make it interesting IMO.

    Did anyone ask when the multiplier big will be fixed? That's about the biggest thing I want to know about the table.

    It's still going on for the next hour and a half. The one I did yesterday was a live chat with XBLA fans (didn't copy that one, sorry), and then I did a podcast with Radio PS, here is the link if you want to listen: http://www.radioplaystation.com/blog...ation-9-12-12/
