    Default Still no update??? No word or news or anything?

    I'm going to assume this isn't happening this week and try to enjoy my weekend. I'll hope for next Thursday as that's about all I have forward to look to!

    Your fault or not it's things like these that lose sales. People get ticked and say screw them. Why should I care if they don't. People will blame Zen and not Nintendo and that's a shame.

    This really is a sad series of events. Shortly after Mel says the Wii U hasn't been supported properly and efforts were going to be made to correct that, then this happens.

    If NoA dropped the ball you can't really do much about that, but PAX or not, a section of the community is feeling left out in the cold. I do have to say I was really impressed with how miiverse took the news. After not getting anything new for ZP2 since it was released, the news of the delay was kindly accepted.

    One guy below your post is upset. He wants free content for this delay. Can't say I blame him but I'm sure Zen doesn't want to be dealing with this right now. I can't see how this was on them at all. Seems Nintendo did this and doesn't care otherwise it would be there. Now if the dates weren't given to them by Nintendo of America and they assumed the dates from Europe were the same well we know were that leads.

    Yeah, there are some that aren't happy. Can't say I'm thrilled myself. Really disappointed we aren't hearing from Zen yet.

    Well at the very least you can enjoy your one table this week. Shoot for your first billion. So close.

    Enjoy your weekend Btw. Stay safe and hopefully next week we have those well deserved tables!

    Yeah, my wife and got an invitation to work on a volunteer construction project for 3 months starting next month. We are taking our cat to her parents this weekend and they are going to take care of him while we are on the project.

    Is there a different table we move to for the second round of the Knockout Tournament?

    Nice, sounds like good bonding time!

    New table every week you advance. Hyna will announce it usually by no later then Tuesday so keep an eye out for it. Always on Miiverse though so don't look elsewhere. Just to let you know I haven't won every week either. Think I've lost 2 or 3 since we've been doing them for various reasons.

    I don't want free content, I just want the content I bought to be updated and to know exactly which tables haven't been updated on 360. I have no problem with buying tables over again, but I'm just frustrated that every platform I bought tables for runs into some issues. Personally, I think Sorcerer's Lair on Windows and iOS is more than many companies offer and I feel it's incredibly awesome that this table is offered for free. It also gave me an idea of how the game runs on Windows, which is much better than I expected (fairly fast CPU for the time it came out, but low end graphics card. Game still runs at 60 FPS). Because of this, I'll probably double dip for PC eventually, or at least get a table I don't have yet on the platform.

    Oh I wasn't referring to you. I treat people here differently as I know we are all passionate about are pinball. I was talking about someone on Miiverse.

    ok cool. Silly me. One good thing is that when I was looking for updates for Zen Pinball 2, I found out something else updated, Shovel Knight. Nice game so far. I'm loving the music. Reminds me a lot of Goonies II.

    You should give it a chance when it goes on sale. I for the most part hate 2d platformers but this one is special. I like DKC/R and the latest Rayman and that's about it.

    I liked Rayman Legends, but it would be something I play while I'm waiting for MH4U, at which point you won't see much of me anywhere else.

    I'm grabbing the demos now. My system is showing a 20 minute download, so I'm really hoping that is a nice update to the game.

    If you download all of the new content (trials + unlock) it is about 715MB, so it could take a while.

    I'm downloading 3, I'm not comfortable with the Dr. Strange table and the black arts theme. Steven said he had me down for review codes, so I'll just need to be patient.

    Just did a quick one play through on each.

    Guardians - It starts with a 4 ball multi-ball scene, something like the beginning of Darth Vader but with four balls. The balls are all different too, like on the Avenger table. The table has a lot of ramps with a lot of turns, so initially it is easy to lose track of where the ball is going to end up.

    Deadpool - "Well, it's gotta be better than the Iron Man table" so says the Merc himself. Hilarious audio cues in this one, I think it will be a lot of fun. The slings seems really powerful and the ball seem to be moving faster than I'm used to. 4 flippers on this table so you can take some key shots at ramps that need to be entered from the side.

    Walking Dead - Like I mentioned, I have absolutely no history with this series (game or TV) so there is probably a lot of gems worked into this table that I am missing. Ball felt much easy to track after my run on Deadpool. There seemed to be more lanes than ramps, although one ramp did take me up to a mini playing field where you have the traditional flippers reversed, so instead of the lowest part of the flippers facing each other, the pivoted ends were against each other and the ball would drain down the sides instead of the middle. At first I was completely thrown off, but the mind quickly adjusts to the new layout.

    As always thanks Scott!

    Please don't tell me of all people that he said that in the Deadpool table. I just laughed so hard. If it's true I need that audio as my ring tone on my phone. Hate that table lol!

    Oh and I'm in the same boat as you on the Walking Dead table. I know zero of the series on anything.

    Yeah, he says it as you start to play the table. It is pretty funny. I always liked how Deadpool breaks the 4th wall and talks to the reader/player. He does it alot in Marvel Puzzle Quest.....then he drops a humpback whale on the enemy team. It doesn't make much sense, but it is pretty effective. I think Deadpool will be a fun one, but like I mentioned, that ball really moves!

    Sweet!

    I like what I tried of the Guardians and Deadpool demos. Both seem to be very fun, though the initial multiball for Guardians takes up most of the demo.

    Is there a list somewhere of the differences between Marvel Pinball PS3/Pinball FX2 360 and Zen Pinball 2? I heard the ZP2 versions play faster than their MP counterparts and that seems to apply to the 360 versions as well, telling from the demos. Plants vs Zombies Wii U seems to play faster than the 360 version, as well as being a later version that doesn't start with the outlanes lit. Pinball FX2 Steam seems to be based on the ZP2 engine, as well.
