After another go my scores are still pretty crappy, but I somehow managed to get 35mil or so on the X-Men table which is a hell of a lot more than I've got before!
I didn't like that table before but it has grown on me.

So, how does this work? Is it a trial game until you buy a table? Can you even get achievements until you spend some points?
I downloaded it the other day, but after a minute or two it told me my time was up. I thought it was "free", no?

You don't pay for the game, you buy the tables. As you have seen, there's a -rather strict- time limit on all trial tables, which supposedly lets you taste the table to see if it "clicks" before you actually buy it.
That said, there was a full table called Paranormal given at some point for free, but I don't know if that is still the case - check it out.

Paranormal was only free for Halloween week, you have to pay for it now, sadly. Which is a shame, 'cos it's a good table.
You're not that dogshit Shika since you seem to have about five times my score on the Moon Knight table!
Ah well, I've got something to aim for now mind, but at least you haven't got any of those billion-plus scores I've heard that people have been getting on some tables. That might make me cower in terror
Any advice chaps?
I had Pinball FX2 on my last 360 - it was the free upgrade from Pinball FX which I purchased a couple of years ago.
Anyway, got a 360 Slim last year and last night red-downloaded Pinball FX, remebered there was a PBFX2 so downloaded that too.
In PBFX2 it wont let me import my PBFX tables, it says they're not found on my console and redirects me to the XBL marketplace to download the original. On the marketplace screen it doesnt recognise I have already paid for and downloaded the original and is trying to charge me 800points.
Long story short - want to play my PBFX tables in the PBFX2 engine and getting jipped - anyone else had this problem?
Hmm, is it possible richardiox that the tables are still linked to the old console, and that you need to do the content transfer thing to get them attributed to the new console?
I can't think of any other reason why it thinks you don't have them, and to be honest I would have thought that you redownloading FX, and then downloading FX2, would have solved this problem anyway.
In short: I don't know.
Did you buy the tables on the same profile?
Yeah brought them on the same profile and did all my DRM transfer stuff en masse when I got my slim. Fuck it - guess I'll just have to play PBFX tables in that game engine and use PBFX2 for new tables.
Them's fighting words right there!
I'll beat your score someday even if that is the day there are flying pigs over a frozen hell
So, there is (another) new pack of Marvel tables due out sometime before the end of the month.
Was just curious as to whether people are a) aware and b) interested?
Ill most likely pick them up at launch but feel a bit non-plussed about it to be honest.
I already have what a dozen Marvel tables already , would have preferred something a bit different this time.
I do vaguely remember the new tables being discussed, and them relating to all the Avengers-y stuff that's going around at the moment.
I'll probably pick them up too... despite the fact that they have Marvel branding, there are some great tables in the eight that already exist, so another four won't do any harm.
Having said that, I haven't really played very much of the virtue and vengeance stuff, so what I *should* do is play more of that before I consider more tables.
Indubitably evilashchris will review it, and this will tip me over the edge into buying it, though.
Yeah they are Avengers, Hulk and a couple of others I forget now.
I had a bit of a grumble on the Zen forums about too many Marvel tables. It soon became apparent that there are a lot of Marvel fans about and they have a pretty large appetite for all things Marvel related.
Personally I prefer the original Zen designs but 4 more Marvel tables will have to do for now I spose...

I've not got a new table for ages. I think the last one I got was Captain America.
I've probably missed out on loads of tables at this point. Anything worth a purchase in the newer tables?
I completely forgot about Captain America, and the Fantastic Four, and all those individual ones, in my count.
Haha, sounds like Alipan poked a bear with his Marvel-bashing!
They are all good but basically more of the same. A lot of people liked Sorcerers Lair and that can be bought as an individual table as well I think.
Epic Quest is also apparently OK - cant comment myself though because Ive only played it for 5 minutes.
On a side note Ive been playing Williams Pinball Collection for the last week or so - its been quite an eye opener to see where Zen got their...er..inspiration from. Even whole tables are more or less copied - the Rocky and Bullwinkle table on FX2 is basically a copy of Sorcerer I have discovered.

I constantly get around 10% of an Alipan score.
New tables due this week but I don’t think I will get them this time – had enough of Marvel.
Also Ive read that they only have 1 achievement per table. If you remember each table previously has a 5g, 15g and 30g.
Well based on the PS3 trophy list its seems that Zen have chosen the 5g as the sole Xbox achievement for each table.
Seems a bit lame – I enjoy chasing down the 30g’s.
Oh, reason is MS have an achievement limit of 99 I think – after this pack FX2 will be at 88.

The new tables are amazing. Best I've played in ages. How they keep upping their game I have no idea.
I look forward to reading your review.
Ill have to disagree with you that Zen keep upping their game though. To my mind the first 'Core' pack with Pasha, Rome etc is still the best.
V&V wasnt bad but I played Epic Quest for the first time recently and I have to say, I found it be be very poor.
Epic Quest does seem a bit flat compared to some of the others, but at least there was a little new thinking behind it with your loot.
Infinity Gauntlet is just superb, I can't say too much yet, but it's a hell of a lot of fun.
It's like they know I've got 840 points left hanging around in my account.

Why is evilashchris an evolved gamer/geek and has played the new tables already? I feel so ungeeky. I need to play them. Are they 800ms points?
chris is one of the cool dudes that writes reviews over at All About The Games from time to time, where they dole out review codes of things to honored and trusted people who can spell.
Oh, and just get involved in the forums a bit and bagsie a review code when you can. If you can spell ofc.
