:applause:

That is all... nah lol j/k but yeah Zen Studios outdid themselves here.

I usually don't get the trials of the tables but then again I am a Pinball FX 2 fan. Now each table of this pack I played I was like oh this is my favorite table, oh wait no this is my favorite table. Lol each table has sooooo much personality, it's amazing. Really enjoying World War Hulk, Zen really captured the feel of Hulk flying around. Of course the staple Avengers table is also the spotlight of the pack, although Infinity Guantlet is pretty bad ass too. In last but not least is Fear Itself, which just feels so weird and fresh that I love it as well. :bouncy:

Here are the table's trailers: :applause:

Yeah, really awesome tables in Avengers Chronicles, which I picked up a couple of nights ago. I usually gravitate towards one or two tables in these packs but I thoroughly enjoy every one of these.

I'm wondering if we can discuss methods for the achievements with some of you gurus? The Zen forums aren't always very helpful with that.

So World War Hulk is an easy one. Just spell out arena in the center lane and go up the ramp.

Saving Cap's ball from draining on Avengers is straightforward but annoying to try to do. I just don't usually have the instant wherewithal to depress the flipper and nudge at the exact time. I don't think I'll be spending a lot of time with this.

I activated Blitzkrieg on Fear Itself from the random reward off the end of the left flipper and got flustered and drained the ball. Is it easy enough to complete? I saw something about hitting targets but no indicators saying where they were.

How do you get the Surfer Award on Infinity Gauntlet. Totally lost on this one.

Thanks for any help.

I've done it... Not really sure how I did it without looking for the solution. LOL

Anyhow, this is taken from Trueachievements.com

to Score the Surfer award you must first unlock it by running the ball off of "the board" ramp 5 times. The "the board" ramp is the shiny silver surf board that is on the right side of the table. The ball usually falls right to it when you start the game. If you hit the ball on the far right ramp that reaches the bumpers you can get to "the board" ramp again.

Once you do this 5 times Silver Surfer will then surf to the far left orbit. Once you hit the left orbit or the orbit that's directly underneath "the board" ramp. the achievement will unlock.

Assemble the Team for the X-Men table finally popped for me. I was so excited when it did, I've played that table for a while now without getting that one.

Awesome, thank you inmate. I'm going to have to try that later. It sounds simple enough but we shall see.

Nice one, spy. Seeing your scores I'm surprised you have trouble with any of these!

Well there's a difference between getting multiball and keeping it alive for a while then hitting a sequence of ramps or one over and over again. Still gotta work on my accuracy. ;)

Sweet!

• New effects! The table becomes fogged over during the “Going Nuts” mission and players can use a genuine Melon-Pult to keep zombies at bay!
• Preparation is the key to victory: Collect money and sunlight in times of peace to purchase the plants that will fight off the zombies
• New XBLA Achievement: “You Have Mail” (50 GS)

Super Awesome, I'm so there!

So the new Plants vs Zombies table will be out today, anyone else picking it up (I would question getting any more tables but I love PvZ)?!

I got it yesterday. Will have full impressions up later today... Basically it's great and easier than many past tables. The single Achievement is a cinch to get.

Also note that one of the Marvel tables packs (the one with X-men) is half off through Sunday!

I don't actually like PvZ the game that much, but I appreciate it anyway, and definitely appreciate Pop-Cap's sense of humor, so I'm tempted to buy the FX2 table, but I'm going to try not to be swayed because the FX2 machine designs I'm generally not very happy with. I'll be interested to hear your opinion of it, Spybreak8.

It's been a long while since I got a Pinball FX2 table. I got tired of all the Marvel tables. Broaden your horizon! It's not all superheroes! :)

My playthrough:

I'm a big PvZ fan and Zen did it right, this table oozes Plants vs Zombies (if you liked PvZ you'll like this table). I wish they'd do a Castle Crasher table next, they could really tie into the XBLA hits (granted PvZ released on PC initially). The table has many lanes that you'll constantly hit with a few ways to grab challenges and other game modes via hitting two "pits" on the table. We also see an iconic crazy individual shows up and helps out with his blue pinto, after which activating results in different plant bonuses.

There's also a currency system in play which ties to PvZ. Threw out play you'll collect sun from the sunflower that sprinkles it across the table, you can activate a frenzy to receive more, to purchase the different plants at your disposal. Each plant has a special ability related to how they act in the PvZ world. There can be some chaotic zombie sequences so they are very useful. I kept saying out loud as I was playing, this is crazy (when fog was on the board and zombies were all gunnin' for me)! I loved it.

The advantage of video pinball, compared to real life pinball, is that you aren't limited to you know reality (I do enjoy virtual simulated physical tables too). The ability for the zombies to materialize and crumble when hit was I thought pretty neat. The effects of fog on the table was really awesome and felt like again, PvZ. The art style to the table feels like it was done by PopCap.

I actually mustered quite a high score of 400K+ and haven't read the rules of the table yet. It is a fun high scoring table like Spiderman imo, multi-ball is easily obtainable and jackpots can be achieved back to back. The only thing I might dock this table is the plant dialogue sfx can get annoying in the long run but that's my opinion about most of the new tables. At first Ccoo coo Combo was funny but it became an old joke fairly quickly. I can see myself playing this a lot more.

A good little writeup here, I'd add that the woman voice is the lively peashooters, or at least that's what I gathered(you'll hear the peashooters in the PvZ music video "Zombies on Your Lawn"). Yeah like I said, this oozes Plants vs Zombies, quite a good attention to detail in this table.

The singer in PvZ is Laura Shigihara, the game's composer. While PvZ Pinball features arrangements of her actual music, I don't believe she provides the narration for it. Could ask the devs though.

I'm pretty sure all the vocal clips throughout the PvZ table was narrated by her. Or it's someone impersonating her...

Okay, the voice in Plants vs. Zombies Pinball definitely came from PopCap as opposed to Zen. No word yet on who provided the voice, but this tidbit seems to be a sign in favor of it coming from Laura.

It's Laura. her voice is very distinctive and I'm a huge fan of her.

there were a couple times when it didn't sound like her so it's possible they got a voice actor to emulate her. but I doubt it.

First, I'm not pleased with the Civil War table. The ramps are too steep and the talking gets old.

Anyway, to settle a past disagreement... Laura Shigihara confirms that she did not voice the Plants vs. Zombies table:
