Confused about Marvel Pinball. Are the individual tables on sale this week or just the base game? On Google Play, the base game was on sale for 10 cents with each of the individual tables on sale for $1 each. Trying to figure out if it's better to buy the tables on my Shield TV or my PS3/PS4.

The base game is on sale for PS3, but those tables are also unlocked for the PS4/PS3/Vita versions of Zen Pinball 2. Alongside that are the bundles of the Marvel ZP2 tables that unlock them for all three platforms along with a number of them working in Marvel Pinball.

Well Streetpass is when you walk near other 3DS players. So maybe noone was around?

They're supposed to have StreetPass stations that automatically act as a means of collecting StreetPasses for visitors to get some when they rarely get any. It seems that the normal places have either been ordered to turn them off or they've had issues that prevent them from working correctly, so they've lost their usefulness.

Didn't know about any co-op mode. I asked one person that I know has OW and he said it was only MP.

I grabbed BB a while ago and only put a few hours into it. (Grabbed in an earlier sale in the 30's)

Have not grabbed OW yet, mainly for one reason. 100% MP. Well that and it's still $60 and has yet to have a sale.

Games like OW with MP only, just trying to learn a map etc is frustrating as everyone is raping you and your own team mates bitching at you for not knowing the map... Just makes the initial experience leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Just a general complaint I have with MP only games like that, mainly FPS types.

At least with BB etc there is a SP aspect of it to help you learn how the game plays and learn your class as well.

Big reason I pretty much only play with a handful of people now online. I'll play a FPS, but pretty much 99% of the time it's in a single player mode. When I do play MP with random people it's brief.

Overwatch has a co-op vs AI mode where you can explore the map, try out the various heroes, and take it easy before going into the regular MP.

 

The multiplayer is also a rare beast in the multiplayer world where it's just a fun, laid back experience where you can just play and not worry about whether you're playing well or not. At least everything but the Ranked mode, which I'm hoping is where those try-hards stay and let the rest of us play for fun. The same goes for things like Rocket League, Destiny, and others where they're so much fun to play that things like KD ratio and all that nonsense doesn't really matter in the end.
