Fantastic Four table is up. A very busy table with a lot of ramps and objectives. Managed to get one of the achievements so far. Had 4 balls at one time. That was the achievement, I think. 21 milion high score. But it only lasted about a minute and the balls were gone. Worth the 240 points.

Intersting, I just downloaded the new Fantastic 4 table today. Is today the first day it's been available?

Movies must be OAR, sports and movies must also have 5.1 audio, No EE or NO SALE!

I've played it since Wednesday and while it's really good, I think there are too many ways to have a weak ramp shot run straight down the middle and out. Sure, I'm not supposed to make WEAK ramp shots, but it's annoying none the less.

Meanwhile, a return to the other tables has gotten me at least 7 Achievements in the last few days which is always good. Finally got one in Iron Man, which is a lot of work just to get a 5-pointer...

This is one of the worst parts of the table but to get past this, once you know it is a weak shot, bump the table (tap left thumb stick) so ball will change directions slightly. This works for all the tables.

Thanks for the heads up. Will need to go download this later tonight. I like the Mars table too.

That Iron Man table is probably the toughest in the game to get into any kind of a rhythm; the ramps on the far left and far right are at such odd angles that hitting them is more often a matter of luck than any kind of skill. The whole table just feels off compared to most of the other tables in the game and it does take forever to accomplish any of the achievements.

I almost got the stupid defeat Whiplash and Mandarin achievement today! I think I'll get that before the 5 point one.

Finally bought the core pack and I have to say that I'm disappointed. The Marvel tables are vastly superior in my eyes.

A new Captain America table has been announced. The Marvel tables have been so much better than the ones that shipped with the game. http://kotaku.com/5812031/when-capta...ball/gallery/1

I had my best score on the Fantastic 4 table after a 12hr shift.. Was funny.. I was dead tired, zombie like, but was able to score 55 million.. I guess it was because I was so calm I didn't really care..

Next table announced is not a Marvel table, but a tie-in with the upcoming Ms. SplosionMan game.

I don't know about this new Cap'n America table. Had my best score on my second play and have come nowhere near it since. I think it has too much to do. Pinball is suppose to be a rather mundane but enjoyable game. Not a bunch of mini-games. Still overall, to me this is the best (All of FX2) xbox arcade has to offer. I do enjoy splosion man and look forward to what they can do for the pinball game. Another complaint is, what the heck did they do to Rocky and Bullwinkle. I know they had to reset the scores because of some problem but on Pinball FX I was always getting over 100 million points but since the upgrade to FX2 i can't even come close to half that. Almost every time, right down the center and not even bumping the table helps. I just played the FX version and managed 120 million. So they had to intentionaly make the game harder which really means make it easier to go thru the flippers. Not a fan of R & B anymore.

+1 It seems I play better pinball when I am more tired and or relaxed. If I am wide awake I tend to over think it and just do not do as good.

Ghost Rider table is next, but there are four more tables planned as well! Also, I can't wait to eventually play Pinball FX (or a variant of it) on my iPad.

Want.

But IMO pinball on iPad doesn't work well because of lack of tactile buttons.

I think that Pinball HD works pretty well on the iPad except for the wonky physics.

Screen shots are up for the upcoming Ms. Splosion Man table on http://www.pinballfx.com/ under the tables section.

It looks like this:

Ms. Splosion is out and pretty fun. One review said you can score a lot of points on that table and that is true. Scored I think 50+ million after a few plays. Did not get any achievements on it yet though. Music is not to bad, and the colors are little hard to see I think. Overall I like it since there are some good ramp options.

Just played it twice last night. Fun table, but I had no idea what was going on. Every shot seemed to go right to a ramp, so scoring is aplenty. Got 100M in the second game, even though I was hoping for it to end so I could get to my simmering chili! (And for reference, that's the highest score I've gotten on any table.)

Some tables have "instant suck" where you just can't seem to win (some of the earlier games). Others go on and on (MARS). This appears to be more of the latter.

Anyway, will continue to play and try to figure out what's going on! Lots of noise, lots of explosions, it's certainly not a boring game!

Wow, for the first time ever I am number one on a table! I am sure that it will be short lived because WVU Mntneers is a mutant (as well as SteelReef and Egret being on my ass.) I didn't even know you got a special symbol over the game in the selection screen when you're number one.

Wow, Ms. Splosion is a great, high scoring table. I also love the Splosion Man games. That being said, damn does it hurt my eyes.

Just scored my highest on any table. Over 232 million on Ms. Splosion Man. I doubt I have the patience to get any higher.

WVU is always kind enough to send me a message letting me know when he beats my score. Losing the trophy is the salt in the wound.

Then again, one of you guys got 632 MILLION on the Spider-man table during the last tournament. I was proud of my 22 mil.
