    Hard to tell whats really going on from the trailer but looks decent enough. I wonder how the allies mechanic works... makes sense the likes of Invisible Woman, Human Torch and Spiderman being able to be recruited for both sides but the thought of Luke Cage for example siding with Iron Man given his extreme views against the Registration Act just wouldnt fit at all.

    Still so far the main thing has been confirmed for me with the table... you can choose one side over another (ive always been pro-reg)

    not a big fan of the civil war comic event (honestly along with secret invasion and AvX it was one of the most dissapointing events marvel has done in a while) but then i wasn't a big fan of the fear itself comic until the table changed my opinion about it
    so who knows maybe this may change my opinion about the event too

    I'm quite keen now to play this table... I know nothing about the civil war comic events but will read main ones before the table is out.

    From a quick look at the rule sheet on the Marvel Pinball web-site it seems that Zen has given quite a bit of thought to spice up the missions/modes and scoring strategy:

    - Prologue multiball called Stamford, that you only have to play once if you want to as each new game you start will give you the option of not playing it again and starting the rest of the game with your highest score achieved for the multiball.
    - Choose on which side of the civil war you want to be on and you will play the missions accordingly e.g. multipliers system is different depending on who you choose.
    - You are encouraged to score combos specifically with an eye on increasing your EOB bonus.
    - You are encouraged to play through wizard mode twice as your second time around promises to score huge. I assume you can first play on the one side of the Civil War and then switch over after you have completed the Wizard mode.

    It feels like the table is going to be a super high scorer but I guess we'll have to wait and see

    Where is this rule Sheet? Kind of sounds like Avengers in a way where instead of picking a hero (ball) you pick the side you want to play as. Interesting! probably done before but I like the idea that whichever you choose the missions and ways you get multipliers etc are completely different. That sounds so cool.

    Its on the Marvel Pinball web-site under Tables. Its the first one coming up. The rule sheet is under the table image.

    It will be interesting to see how much different the play mechanics will be between the two sides. You still seem to activate the multipliers the same for both... the one you can just increase it more and take longer to score a extra ball that way.

    Yes finally checked it out. Didn't realize they actually put the rule sheet out for the table under 'Tables' Interesting premise indeed. And getting your all time multiball score? Wow!!! also seeing some of the mutiball jackpot scores makes me think this is indeed a high scoring table. 4.5m per shot at that center target. Maybe it's a table like Avengers where after your first wizard mode you can score tons of points with successful mission/wizard mode completions.

    Can't wait.

    We should have Fantastic Four out hopefully by the end of this month, and then Civil War will follow (hopefully) a couple weeks later. No official date just yet, but as soon as we get it, I'll let you all know! I played CW, and it's pretty slick, I'm really excited for you all to play it soon

    So in other words, the plan is to have F4 release out before Halloween and for Civil War to be released out sometime in November?

    That's the plan, but we all know how funky digital distribution can be. Also, with CW being released on iOS, Android, Mac, Win8, PSN and XBLA, that's a lot of work to get them synced up on the same release date. Cross your fingers and toes, people.

    I don't really care if the game gets released on all platforms on the exact same day. I am sure it can be difficult with all the different certification processes. I am just really happy that all platforms are getting equal treatment with a "relatively" simultaneous release date. Zen did it with Epic Quest, then got away from it with the Avenger pack and PvZ, and now it is coming back with CW. I think it makes everyone a lot happier when everyone gets new content at relatively the same time and helps alleviate the perception of platform-specific favoritism.

    I don't mind if the xbox fanboys get it first as long as the rest of us get it soon after. I would rather the xbox kiddies get it first than hear all their whining. Just go to the pinball arcade forum and see what I mean.

    Stereotyping Xbox 360 players as "fanboys and kiddies"? Does it make you feel better for you to say that? Not all of them are bad, y'know?

    LOL. I was teasing Cloda because he was teasing me. It was all in good fun until you had to get all sensitive and take it personal. Because I hurt your feelings I will take it back.

    So instead we have to put up with your whining? Just chill out. I'm not a fanboy nor am I a "kiddy" last I checked, then again, maybe 31 years old is a kid. Just enjoy playing pinball.

    C'mon now Nekro. That is completely uncalled for. Because Barbie seems to like just singling me out and nobody else, I want to warn you and Rhino about your "tone." Cloda and I were both having a little fun and then you and rhino felt the need to put in your 2 cents. You both need to stop being sensitive sallys. That includes you as well Barbie.

    Edit: Just to make it clear I was making a joke and did not single out a single forum user. Rhino and Nekro felt the need to take my joke seriously and get all bent out of shape. I was not stereotyping every single xbox user and I have no idea why Nekro and Rhino felt the need to take it personally.

    I only called you out because when someone gets offended, you seem to be the instigator. I'm not personally offended, but you need to watch what you say because obviously other people get offended by it. Calling someone a "kiddy" or "fanboy" seems pretty rude since we can't actually hear the inflection in your voice. Just be careful.

    Well I did not call any specific member here a kiddy or fanboy. I like to joke and tease I won't apologize for that because that is who I am. Just like that angry guy about threatening not to buy any DLC until he gets anti aliasing. I thought it was silly and teased him a bit. I can't help it if someone takes what I say as some imagined slight against them. I did not mean for anyone to get offended. I was simply teasing Cloda because of his statement saying "As long as we get it first." I will readily admit I am not the most PC (politically correct not personal computer, pc fanboys don't attack me) guy out there. See, that parenthetical was a joke. In the future, I will try to specifically point out that I am joking or teasing in the future so nobody gets their feelings hurt.

    Hmm... New table?

    *Goes back to finally playing tables he has purchased but not played*...

    Nah in all seriousness, the video didn't excite me for this one; but the trailers rarely do. I usually enjoy a table about 2 months after it's been released (give or take).

    I am just now playing World War Hulk and Fantastic Four... so ya'know ^.^...

    So yeah, see you all in a couple of months in terms of this table.

    The easiest way to let us know you are joking is to use a smiley. I personally use the tongue smiley when I make a sarcastic joke.

    You fanboy!

    Sorry guys and Barbie (and surf1der for getting you in trouble ), it was only meant as a tongue in cheek joke.

    surf,

    Didn't mean to get you into trouble, but like what other people say above, it's hard to joke on the interweb w/o knowing you are to other people. I thought you were serious, but then you say its a joke? All of a sudden, you imply me being sensitive and it "was all in good fun" defense. And here i am awe stuck with stupidity.

    There should be no apology, just a misunderstanding from both sides.

    Hey everyone!

    We set up a meeting at NY Comic Con for Chip from The BTeam Podcast to chat with Chris Baker, the Interactive Manager at Marvel, and here it is! As some of you may know, Chip is a HUGE fan of ours (over 500 hours on Zen/Marvel Pinball!!) and a friend as well, so it's awesome to see him completely nerd out while talking to Chris about the Civil War table, and other Marvel games. There is a bit of audio interference, but still worth checking out. Chris reveals how the Civil War table starts each game... Click here to watch and find out more

    I've known Chip FOREVER (Well, internet forever), Great guy and a hell of a gamer. We met at Gamerankings.com and he was my Red Mage in FFXI for about 2 years. Check him out guys, he has the Rapier seal of approval, for all that means

    P.S. If I haven't beat Chips score on a table, just means I haven't tried And according to Raptr, I have 424 hours on Pinball FX2 but I only signed up for it after being on here a few months, so its prolly off.

    Awesome! I was on his podcast once or twice and I met up with him at PAX East this year, he's a great guy!

    C'mon guys! We don't wanna reveal our identities and register with the government so they can control us!! (this is coming from an Air Force vet btw) LOL Besides it frustrates the integrity of being a masked hero to protect their identity, right?! The heroes would never have peace. They would be hounded like celebrities! Sorry..I'm just getting myself in the mood and I'm hyped for the table. As you can see....you all know whose side I'm on!

    One more day, I have the MS points ready and waiting

    I'm assuming it'll be another "1 achievement" table, but as long as the table is as well designed and addictive as the others, I'll be happy. Also, I have a thing for red and blue tables, like the Spiderman one....the colours just look "right", so that's another reason for me to look forward to Civil War
