I got the 5 point Achievement on my second game, along with more points than in any other table (I now have 20). A nice break in my Deus Ex pursuits...

New tournament starts Friday (30th). Not sure what table. Actually they used the words "announced in 2 days". Also looking forward to a possible new table today. Funny, last week they had a table showing up in the panes but when I tried to download it, it just gave an error. Premature listing, I suppose.

Finally got the 3rd achievement in Ms. Splosion Man the other day. Usually don't worry about those things, but for some reason I kept reading about how easy it was to get, so I was determined to figuring it out. I ended up with 285 million, which is the highest on any of my tables. I have all the achievements on 8 of 21 tables. 21 more billion on Ms. Splosion Man and I would only be about 100 million from highest score.

The next FX2 table will be Sorcerer’s Lair, from the PS3 Zen Pinball tables. Coming Oct. 12th.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

There's a tournament starting on the Wolverine table. It's a tough table, for me anyway.

I rarely play this table. It is just too easy to go down the sides. I try for the 2nd achievement every once in a while. How the leader of the tournament got around 2 billion is beyond me. I probably average around 10 million, at most. There is no way I will ever reach a billion on any of the tables, let alone this one. Look forward to the new table anyway. I play this game more than anything else on xbox. I have worn out 2 controllers because of it. Any new players want to add me to help with their overall score, send me an invite. WVU Mntneers

The Sorcerer's Lair table is available for download.

Anyone try it yet?

EDIT: Here's the trailer.

I have it. So far, I am liking it. Lots to do. I think someone all ready has over 2 billion. Not sure, but I think I had somewhere around 48 million on my 1st few plays. Haven't read the instructions yet (rarely do). Haven't got an acheivement yet either. Worth the 240 points.

Where ARE the directions for these games? I stumbled into the 15 point Achievement in Ms Splosion Man the other day, and knowing what else to do would be nice. Lots of points in Sorcerer's Lair but that's all so far. 3 BILLION for the leader? Really???...

Once you start a table go into the pause menu and select 'Help & Options'. From that menu select 'Rule Sheet'. Information on what to do on the tables is there. You have to LT/RT through the pages of info.

johnbe, you are killing the Sorcerer's Lair table btw, 303M!! Well done. I can't imagine how long it takes to play some of the games with scores that are in the billions.

I was doing well on the Sorcerer's table last night and my ball got stuck on the right side of the screen. It wouldn't do anything, so I tilted, but then it still wouldn't do anything. Finally, it disappeared and then reapeared in the ball shooter, but then I had already tilted. I was kind of angry about that.

Thanks for the heads-up: I experience the same in the center, when the circular platform was rising and the ball jumped up into a non-playfield section. I waited about 10 seconds and the ball returned to the shooter lane, and the game continued.

btw, here's a preview to one of the upcoming Marvel tables:

It looks like there's going to be another pinball game to steal our MS Points next year.

Pinball Hall of Fame is a great playing pinball sim. Not as flashy as FX, but more realistic with licensed tables. At two tables per month, this could go on for a long time.

not to threadjack since this is a PinballFX thread, but I'm confused on that Pinball Arcade game. I know the developer is the same developer as the Pinball Hall of Fame Williams collection game. But are they just rereleasing the game as an XBLA game with DLC tables? It seems like those tables are already in the retail copy of Pinball Hall of Fame.

I think of the 4 mentioned only Arabian Knights was in Hall of Fame, and that's just in the 360 and PS3 version.

Also, going off memory, based on the Arabian Knights table, the engine for The Pinball Arcade looks different than HoF. I'm hoping FarSight updated the psychics, not that it really needs it.

And even this new game is still the HoF engine, leaderboards and oncoming DLC make it worth it. Plus I've gotten so lazy with games on the hard drive that not popping in a disc is totally worth it for me.

I found the physics in Pinball Hall of Fame to be better than for PinballFX. But of course, HoF is constrained by the fact that it's based on real tables (and really old tables, by the way). Whereas FX is not shackled by reality and can do designs that would be fantastical in real life.

And I like the idea that FX has tons of commercial licenses. The best tables I wanted for Pinball were titles like Terminator 2, The Addams Family, The Simpsons, etc. which of course are missing from HoF.

Black Hole was on their Gottileb collection on the PS2/Xbox/GCN/PSP/Wii.

Black Hole and Arabian Nights are classics. With the amount of content they're talking about, I'm more than fine with seeing them pick some tables from their existing Gottileb and Williams collections to include in this product. We'll be getting more than enough new content and it would be ashame to see some popular titles get left out just because they were already released in earlier products.

As far as real tables go, I'll pay as much as 1600 Points for a COMPLETE Star Trek: The Next Generation table recreation...

Priceless.

I'd also pay for a COMPLETE stand alone Twilight Zone table or a Theater of Magic table.

I'm assuming you mean IRL tables? Because Theater of Magic is one of the four tables with the launch of The Pinball Arcade.

As for licensed tables with properties like Addams Family, Twilight Zone, etc., I would be surprised to see these because the dev would also have to pay the license holder.

But if FX2 has Bullwinkle and Street Fighter, who knows? I would also pay extra for cool licensed tables.
