This year’s nominations for BEST PS VITA GAME are…
It used to be your gaming experience ending when the credits rolled but nowadays, downloadable content is the norm. New content comes in a variety of forms from powerful weapons and armor to lengthy side missions that can extend your playing experience considerably.
This year’s nominations for BEST DLC are…
Marvel Pinball tables have typically been about heroes versus villains; good against evil. The Civil War story arc throws that out the window and pits superheroes Captain America and Iron Man against each other in a heated battle over the introduction of the Superhuman Registration Act. This time around, it’s not about what mission to complete but more so about whose side you’re on…
Over the recent years, Zen Studios has developed some of the best original pinball tables the videogame world has seen. Zen Pinball introduced gamers to unique creations such as Tesla and V12 as well as partnered tables for beloved franchises including Street Fighter and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. It wasn’t until 2010’s Marvel Pinball that we received a flurry of superhero based tables that heavily incorporated storytelling and fully animated characters and voice acting into the mix, surpassing its predecessor it almost every manner. Determined to outdo itself once again, Zen Studios has unleashed Zen Pinball 2 unto the masses with a completely overhauled user interface and improved visuals and physics. Is this the definite version of the game or has the studio launched its final ball?
Zen Studios has finally unveiled its mystery table it’s been teasing fans about, and it’s Plants vs. Zombies Pinball. Made in collaboration with PopCap Games, Plants vs. Zombies Pinball will be the first piece of DLC for next week’s release of Zen Pinball 2 on the PS3, PS Vita, and XBLA.
Zen Pinball 2 has finally received a release date, and it’s September 4, announced Zen Studios this morning. It will be available on both the PS3 and PS Vita free of charge with the option to purchase individual tables for cross-platform download.
PS Vita was tragically undersold by Sony during their E3 keynote speech. An early leak spoiled the Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation announcement, so our only “surprise” came when we got a title for an already announced Call of Duty game. Oh, we got a logo too.
We’ve scanned the list of confirmed upcoming games. Here are some of the most noteworthy
Lately, Zen Studios’ focus has been on Marvel Pinball and updating the game with plenty of our favorite Marvel characters straight from the comic books. With the release of the Vengeance and Virtue DLC pack now complete, the developers have shifted back to where the whole pinball craze began; Zen Pinball.
Epic Quest is the newest table to grace the platform and with it comes an entire new RPG element that redefines the pinball genre.
Epic Quest is an upcoming table for Zen Pinball featuring knights, princesses, and numerous monster who will attack our hero Max without hesitation. Best of all, there’s an RPG element to the table that allows your character to level up with experience, equipment, and magic spells.
You might be thinking, “How could this possibly work in a pinball game?” Well, we’re giving away three (3) U.S. vouchers for Epic Quest so you can find out for yourselves.
Epic Quest is set to bring a new standard to the pinball genre by incorporating RPG elements into the table, announced Zen Studios.
As you’re well aware, our fearless leader will be running one of the toughest 10k obstacle courses in the country. Not only that, but he’ll be doing it all for charity. So far we’ve managed to raise a little more than £200 for GamesAid, PS3 Attitude’s charity of choice. We know we can do better than that, though. So, how about a little incentive to encourage donations?
We’ve scoured through the PS3 Attitude offices and contacted our loyal developer friends and have gathered up some awesome prizes that include video games, t-shirts, download codes, and a whole lot more.
Here’s what we have gathered so far and what you have to do for your chance to win…
When it comes to pinball games, Zen Studios is the champion. First the development studio brought us creative tables that delved into the depths of our imagination with Zen Pinball. What originally started as four tables soon evolved to 11, including tribute tables to popular franchises such as Street Fighter and Ninja Gaiden.
Then in 2010, they kicked it up a notch and released Marvel Pinball; a collection of tables devoted solely to our favorite superheroes. Who doesn’t like Blade, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Wolverine? Marvel Pinball essentially revitalized the pinball genre and brought it to a whole new audience.
For this reason, we have selected Marvel Pinball as our #14 pick in PS3 Attitude’s Top 20 PSN titles.
Zen Studios is primarily known for its downloadable pinball titles. Since 2009, the independent development studio has been supporting Zen Pinball with additional DLC tables as well as another stand-alone title, Marvel Pinball, which features our favorite superheroes and villains battling it out for ultimate pinball dominance.
Pinball fans, rejoice! Zen Studios, the makers of the popular Zen Pinball, are at it again. This time, they are providing four new tables based on characters from the Marvel universe. Unlike the recent pinball releases from Zen, this is actually a stand alone title and not downloadable content.
Does the combination of Marvel and Pinball make for a great game or is there simply not enough content to justify the price?
For our money, Zen Pinball has been the best pinball game up to now on the PlayStation 3 and we’ve been lucky that they continually support it with new tables. Following up on the release of the Mars offering, we now have the Paranormal table to sink our teeth in to. So how was it, we hear you ask?
ZEN Studios have announced that the latest table expansion, Paranormal, will be coming to ZEN Pinball on October 19th and 20th in North America and Europe respectively.
Fond of Zen Pinball? Looking for another reason to go back and wear out your flippers? We’ve got the reason, right here.
The Mars DLC table has landed and we have the low-down about the newest download for the classic PSN pinball game.
Zen Studios has announced that a fourth downloadable table entitled MARS is coming soon to ZEN Pinball as they continue to support this popular title.
The Pinball table will see you “experience and explore life on the red planet”, trying to unlock “the planet’s secrets”.
Earth Defense is the latest add-on for ZEN Pinball. Unlike the Street Fighter II and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 pinball tables, Earth Defense is not based on a popular video game franchise.
We enjoyed ZEN Pinball when it was originally released a year ago but is the Earth Defense table worth buying?
