    This pretty much sums up why I'm currently in love with the Avengers table, I think. It is a real balance of safety vs. score, with the relatively easy-to-trigger multiball modes lulling you into that false sense of security that you can lose one of the balls and everything will still be ok. You have to build up certain stuff to get the most out of the scoring chances, and this does mean that you end up going for shots that risk a drain. You can still score quite highly by just keeping the ball in play, but it does take longer playing it safe unless you fluke something high-scoring.

    I suppose this is actually the balance that makes many of the FX/2 tables such fun to play. I just wish I was a bit better at not taking the risks - if I've got an Extra Ball lit and I'm in a multiball, my sense of caution goes out of the window and I can be sure that I'll soon be pulling the plunger again!

    According to Major Nelson the Avengers tables will be half price next week. Never did pick those up so that sounds like the ideal time....

    Also half price are the first Marvel Pack and Captain America table.

    Looks like I'll be moving down a place on the leaderboard.

    Lol will see.

    Ive barely played for a few months. I reckon Im in my autumn gaming years so live in fear of gaming performance plummeting at any time!

    Seriously though I checked the leaderboards the other night to see how far Id fallen. My aim starting next week it to get back in the top 50 for superscore.

    For those interested: the Avengers Chronicles and Cpt America tables for Pinball FX2 are now half price (400 and 120 points) (at least on xbox.com, not yet on the DOTW page mind)

    I'll be grabbing those today. I though as it's Marvel week, they might have chucked in Fantastic Four as well.

    On Nelsons blog it says the first Marvel pack will be on sale too but no sign so far.

    Anyhow will get the Avengers tables tonight for sure.

    I also won a Plants v Zombies table code last night so will redeem that as well - happy days...

    I now have all the packs. Just need a sale on all the individual tables. Make them half price and I'll buy the lot.

    400 points I'm not sure you can better spend than the new Avengers tables. I think they're really good.

    Those tables are as good as bought (as soon as I start my 360 tonight). Now to find the time to put in a decent score on them...

    @Red_Bool Thanks for the notice, although the images on xbox.com seem to show the normal tables. Also there are two options, one at 400 and one free. I assume the free are the demos, but it's not obvious.

    @muttler I'll add you - I've only got 3 pinball fx2 friends and could do with a wider range of scores. Feel free to add MrSiobheon for some distinctly average scores to beat!

    @Siobheon - the avenger tables are "expansions", so they're listed under Pinball FX2. The free ones are indeed the demos.

    I had a quick go on each table just now - really good tables from what I've seen so far. Me happy :)

    Me too, got Captain America as well. played them all once, they all look great, as you'd expect from zen. That's my spare points spent.

    Played with them all for a bit now. What a fantastic set of tables. Best 400 points i've spent in a long time. Will be looking out for future sales although if the other 4 packs are as good as this i'd consider them at full price.

    I wasted a ball on PvZ and thu sacrificed a potentially good score :( I tried the trial and went straight to purchase after the trial was up. Without knowing what was what I seemed to be on ball 2 for around half an hour or so despite losing "ball 2" several times. Presuming it had bugged rather than the fact I must have got several extra balls I just let one go without doing much, then it moved on to ball 3 :( Thus I got a 150m or so on my only go which could have possibly been better, doh.

    I really, really should try and post some proper scores again but I keep knackering my thumb and wrist tendons when I do get into it.

    I'm different. I play for high scores. And my poor skills upset me. So when I pull out an awesome score, I do get inordinately happy. But yes, the second that Alipan sees fit to spend some shekels on the new tables, I guess I will be the secondbest player on my friends list for this table.

    Im afraid that day has now arrived Mr Destroyer.

    Over 1 billion on Hulk last night - 32nd in the world. Not a bad table all in all. Well no better or worse than most of the others anyhow.

    Key to a high score is winning the extra balls by lighting the 'Strength' ramp and then hitting the bumpers 200 times per extra ball (5 max).
    Doing that also boosts the multiplier so it win / win.

    Havent really played the other Avengers tables yet but will move on to Fear Itself next I think.

    Clearly not well enough. You shouldn't have been able to type that. :)

    He typed that with his feet, they're also the source of his Pinball FX powers.

    Zen Studios have tweeted that they are announcing the next Marvel table on October 13th at NY Comic Con.
  • Deleted user 4 October 2012 09:50:00
    More Marvel....tis getting a bit much.

    Having said that am enjoying the Fear Itself table. A lot to do and a fair old challenge. Im deliberately not reading the guide for it and trying to work it all out for myself.

    Had a go at ironman tonight. It's ok but I consistently drained when going for the lock. Seemed to bounce down the rhs as well when trying to activate the missions. Got a bit wearing after a while.

    Then tried Fear Itself, which I really enjoyed despite being not very good at it. Particularly liked the stone ball challenges.

    How often are there new tables?

    Ironman has probably been my favourite table overall. There can be some nasty drains, although if you learn to read them they can be caught. It's probably my best table too. I think I'm about 250th in the world on that one.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.
