    Best. News. Ever.

    Hmmm... there's only 3 slots left for tables on the Vita version and if they make the icons any smaller they will be to small to see or even pick with a finger. Hopefully that means we'll get an updated UI too when they drop.

    I'm happy about this too! Now I can try my hand back at the magna save mission that gives me so much trouble on Pasha! I have to say those tables that we're getting are beautiful.

    Glad to see these coming, I haven't played them in a while, since a good chunk of my playing is on the Vita lately.

    Thumbs up

    awesome, I thought it would be near year end too. I only have PS3 so these tables are all new for me. This has been a great year for Zen, by far #1. Going to PS store now to snag the new SP tables, cheers to the Zen team.

    My gosh Barbie and team! I would love to recommend you all for indie company of the year. Seriously! You all have been consistent with content and you all are so polite and courteous to your fans. You all also respond back to bugs and suggestions on the regular. I have to say that we (all of us members and fans of Zen) are extremely thankful. Happy to be apart of this community.

    This is awesome, been wanting to play these tables for a long time. Definitely will have to make adjustments on the UI, just hope they don't become smaller than they already are.

    Does anyone else think we should eliminate the trophy overlays on top of the icons? I personally don't like it but it's not that big a deal. There is already a menu to go look at your trophies. And Luke looks like he has demon eyes on Jedi table...

    Maybe you're right that this icons who are showing trophies aren't interesting. Better solution would be icons of 1st 2nd 3rd place . In UI I miss easy access to proscore ranking...

    Guess we're not getting a hint.Well as long as it isn't a franchise that should definitely incorporate a mature rating to do it right(Walking Dead, Deadpool and SP) but regrettably doesn't, it's fine with me.So many other more children friendly franchises out there.How about for example Tron or Indiana Jones?

    In any case the release of this Core Pack is the Zen release of the year for me.Maybe next week?

    Who knows?Ět's a crapshoot.

    I don't get it.For example Marvel Studios just announced their entire upcoming film slate, many years in advance.Don't think it is too much to ask for Zen to announce their plans for the next quarter year.Doesn't have to be exact dates, roundabouts will do just fine.Just a general overview.I find it irritating to feel the need to check every other week as to what is going on.

    To be honest, I kind of like the suspense and surprise. Sure when there's a drought, we all are anxious to know what's coming next. Zen makes such great tables, it's hard not wanting to know what's in the pipeline. To be fair though they have been very consistent with releasing tables this year. Some that came at a huge surprise. TWD and South Park were surprises out of no where! I liked it a lot.

    Still I can understand wanting a schedule. Maybe the reason why they don't do schedules of releases is because they don't want to disappoint anyone when that said date comes and the tables isn't ready. Remember what happened with Zen Pinball 2? Had to wait a few more months before we got it in September 2 years ago when a spring date was projected. This isn't me talking facts. I'm just speculating here. *Sigh* I hope in the next year or 2 we get a Hanna Barbera license though. I want a Scooby Doo and/or FlintStones table so badly. Hahaha That's just my dream tables there that I want.

    Zen Pinball 2 was a new platform of sorts.There is more behind that and i wouldn't compare it to the release of individual tables.Personally if you project a release early on and stick within a month of the projected timeframe then that's fine with me.
    As always to each their own.If you like complete surprises that's cool.I'd rather have a rough 4 month overview.For example South Park was a surprise but for me not an entirely positive one.Thematically just doesn't do much for me and it is even neutered for the kids.That to me is a negative surprise.I would have been better of knowing this in advance which would limited my expectations.

    So let me ask you. Would you not buy the tables had you known ahead of time that they were coming? I guess what I'm trying to get at is does telling you about upcoming projects influence your purchase of any future tables? If so, then what's the difference between that and just ignoring an outright purchase when you see it in the store?! You see what I mean? I'm not ragging on ya about it. I'm just confused about the difference it would make. Now let me say this as well. I don't mind at all knowing what's coming ahead. A better answer from me should have been "it doesn't matter if I'm told or not". It makes no difference to me. I'll purchase any and every Zen table. Just like I would for Pinball Arcade. Even if the table is terrible. The completionist in me will have to have the table. Hahaha

    I understand where you're coming from. Had you known about the South Park tables being E rated before instead of M rated, then your expectations would have been warm to what's coming. I personally find the South Park tables amazing without all of the dark humor and inappropriate innuendos. Like you said though, to each their own.

    Maybe i shouldn't say this(because sometimes a boycott is the only way to get a point across...for example if i was consequent i should boycott Walking Dead, Deadpool and South Park because those should be Mature rated tables that are somewhat rendered pointless by being kid friendly) but i own all Zen and all TPA tables and fully intend on supporting them in the future.

    More customer friendly release information policy or not i picked up South Park and will do so with future tables.But lack of information leaves extreme room for speculation on my behave which leads me thinking towards all sorts of cool table ideas like for example a Tron table.Anything Disney seems fair game speculation wise given Zens connection to that company.

    One is left in the dark and in my case dissapointed when something like South Park shows up.Despite being well designed and fun tables on their own(judging from the little i've played them) the theme just does little for me.And table theme is very important for me.
    As said i would feel more comfortable with lets say a 4months headsup or so and then i wouldn't feel the need to check here every other week wanting to know what the heck is going on.

    Don't get me wrong, i dig Zen tables a lot.But i don't like their release information policy(btw FarSight they have whole lot more release issues of their own, that is a whole different battlefield) and them doing mature tables in kid friendly fashion.Wasted resources imo.So many great kid friendly franchises out there.Zen should focus on those.

    We can't announce things too far in advance, not only for the reasons mentioned above, but because we have to be respectful of our licensing partners and contracts. Sometimes we get a few weeks of lead up before the release to get everyone excited, other times we only get a short amount of time. Also, I'm not understanding why you would feel obligated to purchase the game the day it comes out. Why not wait and see what reviewers or others on the forums say before purchasing? Nothing wrong with that. If a theme we do just isn't for you, that's fine. That is exactly why we don't just do only one license or one theme for every table.

    Also keep in mind we cannot do M-rated DLC for a game that is rated E. We'd have to make a separate M-rated game to do that (and we have no current plans to do so). We want to keep pinball accessible to everyone, that was our original point of making pinball games, so that people of all ages can enjoy pinball even though pinball machines are getting harder and harder to find in real life.

    Not every theme is for me and i wouldn't expect that.I don't feel obligated at all to buy every table but i do enjoy supporting the company.In other words if i don't particularly like a table today i still enjoy supporting the company in hope of a table i will like more tomorrow.But maybe you're right.Maybe that policy is worth reconsidering.

    If Zen is truly by default bound by contract to keep their customers in the dark then those are contracts worth reconsidering.Anything can be changed if there is the will to do so.

    More importantly if there is no will to create a M-rated platform then M-rated franchises should not be selected.It is noble to create Pinball for all ages but the Walking Dead, Deadpool and South Park are not meant for all ages.Far from it.

    Another thing with licensed content is that we like to give each license it's own time to be in the spotlight - for example, if we had a huge license coming after a not-so-huge license, and we announced them at the same time, the smaller license might get overlooked or overshadowed. Not really fair to them, right? We've been doing licensed stuff for a long time, and this seems to be the most fair way to handle it. We release a lot of content throughout the year, so having a specified time slot for each one makes it more organized (and certainly helps me keep my sanity). Having this many IPs on this many platforms keeps us all crazy busy.

    As for the M-rated stuff you mentioned above. What is it about Walking Dead/Deadpool/South Park tables that make them not worthy of being selected for this type of game? Was there something in particular that didn't work with these tables as far as the rating goes?

    Well the Spotlight argument makes more sense than the Contract argument and is probably closer to the truth.While there doesn't have to be an official announcement i still don't see why there can't be some sort of hint.Oh well.

    Walking Dead needs proper gore.Headshots galore and beyond!
    Deadpool and South Park desperately need profanity.Gore and profanity are inherent and essential to the respective franchises.
    Concerning horror/suspense there are many titles out there that would be more appropriate for an E-rating.For example Jaws, Gremlins or Fright Night.

    Ok - what? Are you implying that I'm just pulling this stuff out of my butt? Why bother asking questions if you don't believe anything I say?

    Also - we hint at stuff all the time - you just have to be vigilant

    I didn't really ask anything.I stated my view on things concerning release information politics and M-rated tables.

    Whether the Spotlight argument or the Contract argument is closer to the truth is not really important.That is just me speculating.Important is that the bottom line remains that there is no general overview concerning the upcoming 3,4 months.Why....Contract, Spotlight or whatever....i don't really care why i just wish it was different.

    I don't want to be vigilant, i'd rather be informed.

    Since there is no overview on what's to come i am sorta forced to keep an eye on these forums but that is already the max time i am going to invest concerning upcoming tables.I'm not remotely going to scavenger hunt for some potential hint.If that is Zens information policy so be it but i don't have to approve.

    I couldn't disagree with this more. I've played through it a couple times and I didn't find The Walking Dead game to be especially gory. Deadpool and South Park definitely don't NEED profanity. There are a lot of great Deadpool stories that are insane fun without profanity. Same with South Park, the tables capture a lot of the craziness of the show. South Park isn't a "mature" show because of profanity, it's because of the subject matter. Don't get me wrong profanity and gore don't bother me one bit, but I haven't thought of something as being "cool" because of profanity or gore since I was probably 14 or 15.

Don't get me wrong profanity and gore don't bother me one bit, but I haven't thought of something as being "cool" because of profanity or gore since I was probably 14 or 15.
    Fair enough.To each their own.I think there are many,many more franchises out there that i would consider for an E-rating before Walking Dead, Deadpool and South Park.For me to select those may make commercial sense but not artistic.It is like releasing Die Hard 4 as a PG-13 film.Sure it can work to a degree but to me there is something inherently flawed with that approach.

    Zen doesn't want to comprimse their principle's. I respect that. Even IRL 99% of pins are accessible to all with obly a handful that I would consider off limits to kids. The Zen team has done well in navigating tricky licenses and they're not foing to change things because someone's whining about the contetnt should have swaearing, violence, etc. I was skeptical myself at first but they have done a hell of a job!

    There's a new update on PS4 for support of the Ninja Gaiden table. PS4 scoreboards are still unavailable since system update 2.0.

    Thanks, good to know. The tables this year have been very good. Never watched South Park avidly before, but now I'm watching from the beginning to understand all the table jokes, up to season 8 now. Is there an episode guide for the tables?

    I think you'll understand a lot if you watch the first season (a lot of references came from the very first episode) and any episodes that feature Butters

    The Core Collection (Pasha, Rome, Secrets of the Deep and Biolab) is now available on PS3, PS4 and Vita in North America, and will be live in Europe tomorrow! Don’t forget to purchase this pack on PS3 or Vita first, then import to PS4 to enjoy on all 3 platforms! Trailer and details on the blog.

    Awesome news! Can't wait to try them out tomorrow

    Having never played any of them, does anyone have a personal favourite out of the 4?

    I really like Pasha and Secrets of the Deep. I never got to into Rome or Biolab, but I'm going to give them a much better shot this time. So awesome they're here. Downloaded them to my Vita, but haven't been able to even try them yet.

    Waaaaaay to many games the past 7/8 days...

    Found a bug. In Secrets of the Deep, there is a loud wind sound on loop during Multiball features. However, on the PS4 version, it continues to play after the Multiball. Can you please fix this?

    That price is incorrect. It should be Ł7.99. We're talking to SCEE now to fix it.

    Odd I've seen some mistakes been made on the PSN store before, but this time the playstation blog also mentions the 2,99 euro price. Just seen the correct price on the zen homepage, guess the folks who update the store have not been paying attention.

    Rome seems to be easiest in terms of getting both trophies

    As far as each tables easy trophy all are fairly simple except pasha. gonna take a little luck with that one. Did it on ps3 and played 2 hours on ps4 and still no luck. Reminds me of robber knights. real easy to start but tricky to complete. And this is the same with secrets of the deep hard ship wreck trophy.

    Its hard to teach the timing. My only tip (based on Xbox 360 version) was that you could let the ball do a complete loop before you needed to press anything. That made it easier for me.

    Short presses on the buttons are all thats needed just as the ball enters the 'straight'. Let it go round the curve and then tap the opposite magnet.

    It took me ages to get this down but once you have the timing you will seldom fail again!

    Now my ZP2 trophy list is back at 100% on PS3 I've been spending some time playing the 4 tables to try and post a decent score. I keep coming back to Secrets of the Deep, just love that table! The idea of completing 4 multiball modes to reach the Wizard mode is a great idea, especially as all the modes are such a blast to play. I only wish the Probe Frenzy wasn't such a risky mode to start as it's one of the best modes/missions in any Zen table. I played it several times to reach the Wizard mode but realised it's not worth the risk which is a shame to say, so now I just avoid it and play the other 3 multiball Oh, and the Wizard mode is possibly the best of any table too. The vortex swirling, magnets pulling you everywhere, I just love it Currently I'm well over a billion with a ball left and I think when this game ends I'll play some Biolab next, that table looks beautiful, great lighting effects.

    Quick question about the Rome table: Is it possible to earn more than 2 Extra balls?

    I can also confirm this issue on my PS4 version of Secrets of the Deep as well. I think its the audio of the hull breach sound, and yea once it starts, it never ends, can't hear any other dialog or almost think after it starts. I came on here to post about this but see already I'm not the only one.
