Who else downloaded this? I need some good table recommendations.
I'm no pinball wizard by any means, but I really enjoyed the Spiderman table. I downloaded the quite a few of the trial tables, and that one clicked the most with me. I'm going to download the rest of the trial tables now.
At last! I'm finally going to get some friends to play against. :)
When this hit the UK I bought the 4-pack of The Avengers, Infinity Gauntlet, Fear Itself and World War Hulk, and also Plants Vs Zombies and the four classic tables (that's Eldorado, Tesla, V12 and Shaman).
These are all great tables but I'd particularly recommend those Marvel ones. I haven't tried anything else yet, so I'll be looking for your recommendations too.
Finally! I've been waiting for Zen Pinball for Wii U for months! I downloaded 6 tables last night and getting ready to download some more.
I love how the tables can be downloaded one at a time or in blocks of four tables. I downloaded Zen Pinball as soon as it became available on my 3DS, but now....FINALLY...I can actually see all the cool/awesome artwork up close and in hi def!
Hell, with all these tables, I'll never feel like I have nothing to play.
Plus: These guys seem to genuinely like pinball (as opposed to going "hey, if we make a pinball video game we'll corner the market!"), and I really enjoyed Marvel Pinball 3D Demo on the 3DS, wishing it was available for Wii U instead because the shoulder buttons would be perfect.
Minus: There are so many tables available I have to wonder if they really did put all their effort into creating each one, or if there are more than a few "shovelware" tables in the mix.
Plus again: Well, they do let you download demos of just about every table, so you can see for yourself whether it'd be worth springing the 2 to 3 dollars for it, and the base software is free, so frankly everyone should have that at least if they even have a passing interest in pinball.
I've downloaded the game and a pack of tables, but I can't quite seem to tear myself away from Monster Hunter long enough to actually play them quite yet....
This is probably one of those games I'll have listed as "playing" for the whole generation, or at least until a better team for developing video-pinball games comes along. I could see myself buying a new table for 5 to 10 dollars every couple of months or so. EDIT: 3 dollars. In that case, I could even gamble on the tables I don't like at first, in hopes that they grow on me.
I wish I could buy Tesla, without having to buy the other 3 originals as well. I've played more than enough El Dorado and Shaman on both PS3 and 3DS, and V12 is a very average table with high difficulty. Tesla is just so damn good.
Which single tables do you guys recommend? I'm only looking to pick up one for now. And I'm not interested in PvZ.
@Infinitywave I've got to wonder how that works. Does this mean that you play for a while, get to level 5, get a game over, then come back after a few days and you'll start the game at level 5? And what if a different user starts a game on that table, will it start at level 5 for them? Can you accidentally reset your level? Can you reset your level on purpose?
