Quoted from chocky909:

Whatever happened to making a game THEN releasing it?

That's all well and good, but if the update irons out the bugs, it's worth being updated. That goes for pins, video games, applications, just about anything that uses any computer programming whatsoever.

Gotta say that releasing a game then DLC tables a few days later is a dick move. Sort of turns me off from the title altogether.

#103 7 years ago

What turns me off is releasing a game with content that's on the disc, and then the only way to unlock it is to pay for it. Final Fantasy and Marvel Vs. Capcom did that recently. At least Farsight isn't BS'ing the customer into buying the game then buying things that are already on it. They announced what their intent was and are delivering that much.

Of course I would love to see it all packed onto a disc as I know Farsight could do, but it doesn't seem to be in the business plan. Physical discs cost more money to make, and I'm sure that's a factor with download titles.

Yeah, but they're going to be releasing new tables every month for years to come....and the game was already out for a month before the first tables came out on Android. Same will be true for consoles. The first tables won't be out on 360/PS3 till May. Plus they just finished the two new tables, so they weren't ready for the initial release anyway.

#105 7 years ago

Is this ever coming out for wii?

#106 7 years ago

Downloaded MM and BOP for android today and I think they're both pretty good.I was playing BOP earlier however and the ball flew off the table and the machine went into ball search mode and it left me no other option in the end other than restarting the game. I'm sure we're looking at several updaes and patches before it's all said and done.

#107 7 years ago

Still wondering when the 3DS version is coming out..

#108 7 years ago

would love an Atari VCS version, still not sure about upgrading to those new consoles

#109 7 years ago

Anyone know when MM and BOP will be ready for iOS?

#110 7 years ago
Quoted from Twitch_Boy:

They're in the Approval stage with Apple.

PS3 release is tomorrow!

#111 7 years ago

Yep. Downloading tomorrow!

The thing is, they already had all of the current tables except Stern's. In their current/old hall of fame release. So I hope new DLC is new stuff, not the tables they already have...MM and bop are already done under the old game.

#115 7 years ago

You're thinking of Pinbot in the WMS HoF, not BOP. TOTAN and MM were in it though so I'm not excited about the rehash of those with so many good titles yet to be reproduced.

Ah, got me there. Ya I mean I want MM bad...but lets get some new not in emulator tables

#118 7 years ago

This will be the first iteration of BOP. I am not too excited for it though, as I have the real table. Thats no fault of Farsights though

#119 7 years ago

I played some games on my sons xbox on a large HD TV and hell ya it was fun. What a great way to learn a game youve never played before. Looking forward to seeing more games on the list. Playing Black Hole sure brought back memories of playing it from the good ole days.

#120 7 years ago

And Zen announced zen pinball 2 for ps3/psp, another good news of the day for virtual pin

I hear ya.....the good thing about re-releasing MM and other tables is that the physics are much better now than they were in their older PHOF collections.

Sounds like they have a lot of new stuff coming too: AFM, CFTBL, CV, MB, etc.....also TOM wasn't in PHOF either, so that's another new one.

#122 7 years ago

For people who lose balls. You can always goto call attendant in the options and it will give you your ball back in the shooter lane.

Ya I was hoping the graphics (on ipad) were updated and physics. Can't wait for more of the tables, and yes I'm very happy with TOM. I love the game.

I'll be interested to see what happens to demand for those pins when they are released as DLC. If this title can stir up interest in RBION then the values of fun games should go through the roof

#125 7 years ago

It amazes me that HS, FT, and Diner aren't in any games, but then again, look at all the other rejected pins that didn't appear.

#126 7 years ago

High Speed came out a LOOONNG time ago

Actually in my case even though the ball few off the table and the machine went into ball search mode when I chose call attendant it gave me a message that that the ball was not stuck and it was cancelling "call attendant".

#128 7 years ago

Pinbot was on the nintendo as well

It will definitely be interesting.

I also love the way they show the rule sets with the guided instructions. That alone is worth the price.

Absolutely agree. The rule sets and guided instructions are worth the price of admission alone!

#131 7 years ago

I checked the Playstation Store this morning at about 8:15 and didn't see it yet. Of course that's a little early. Anyone see it yet?

#132 7 years ago

I'll be looking for it after work, but psn's updates seem to be sporadic. They always claim tues as the new release date, but I've seen it show up as late as wed. in the case of the Simpsons Arcade that they added recently.

Also, I've found NO sites that accurately what will show up new for ps plus members, or for new psn releases. There are sites with lists, but none have been accurate that I've seen.

#133 7 years ago

Keep me updated, I want to waste my night tonight playing!!

#135 7 years ago

Soooo glad I did not stay up until Midnight waiting on this. Come on already!

#136 7 years ago

The PS store will be updated around 3:00/5:00 this afternoon. It's always later in the day trust me I know. Plays great and looks fantastic on the vita screen. Couple new tables should start trickling in soon besides the initial 4.

#137 7 years ago
Quoted from mummite:

Have you played it yet? If so my envy bar is at max. I got the Vita just for this. tap tap tap

#138 7 years ago

I played it last week its the same as the other versions, but it looks fantastic on the vita screen. I will be buying it for sure. And it has cloud saves to push back and forth between the PS3. There is also a free game called Treasures of Montezuma Blitz and its a bejeweled clone, but its FREE! That one was pretty good 2 especially since its free.

On another off-topic note I am the lead designer for Sly Cooper check out our cover story and interview -->http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/04/10/sly-cooper-steals-the-cover-of-playstation-the-official-magazine/

#139 7 years ago

I have a question. I have two PS3 consoles. Would I have to buy it twice to have it on both consoles?

#140 7 years ago

You only have to buy it once

#141 7 years ago
Quoted from mummite:

So it will work through the user ID rather than the console?

VERY cool!

Quoted from DCFAN:

you can only log into one account at a time, but you can have up to 5 PSN accounts. This is similar to itunes. You can purchase the game and DL it on either of your PS3's but you can only be logged in to one @ a time. That make sense?

Lets see if I understand correctly. So I download the game with my account on the 1st PS3. Then logoff. I go to my 2nd PS3 and logon with the same account or one of my 4 other accounts, then I could play the game on that 2nd PS3? Would I need to to any downloading of software for the second PS3?

#145 7 years ago

yes, it needs to be re-downloaded onto each machine. but only one account can be active (online @ a time)

Thanks, man. Can't wait. Supposedly the PS3 version has better lighting than the 360 version.

#148 7 years ago

The fact that it runs at 1080p too is also a plus. I expect some nice lighting effects as well. The ball and flashers on the 360 look great. Medieval Madness 2.0 looks awesome. I think I might buy that one.

#149 7 years ago

It's up on PSN now...currently DLing!

#150 7 years ago

Right on! Downloading now too....
