Newsletter stuff!

As many of our fans have noticed, the Xbox 360 version of the Pinball Arcade is no longer available in the Live Arcade store. Our publisher for the 360 version recently emerged from bankruptcy and we'd been told that we would be allowed to immediately submit all of the unreleased Table Packs to our long-suffering 360 users. Unfortunately, Microsoft has elected to revoke the publisher's license agreement (which is why the Pinball Arcade is temporarily not available in the store). However, we have some very good news to share- Microsoft has just announced that indie developers (like FarSight) can now self-publish on Xbox Live Arcade instead of being required to find publishers for their games. This means we can bring the Pinball Arcade back to the 360 ourselves, and also opens the door to an Xbox One version of the Pinball Arcade in the future! Microsoft has stated that the new program will open in August- we will do everything we can to get the Pinball Arcade (and all of the new Table Packs) back on the Xbox 360 as quickly as possible.

The version of our new Steam platform for the Pinball Arcade is now Beta! If you are one of our Kickstarter backers entitled to Beta access on the PC platform, watch your email for information on how to get access within the next few days. We are planning an August release for the Pinball Arcade on Steam with all of the current table packs available.

Table Pack 17

The next update will be a great one! The Table of the Month will be Centaur. The new release in Table Pack 17 has a pretty famous character on the backglass that shares a thing or two in common with Centaur, so we think this pairing is pretty cool.

Sorry, no picture to help you with this month's hint - our artists are all tied up in creating art for the PS4 version. They'll be baaack next month with a new hint pic. :)

And here's a preview video of Table Pack 16 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1WJXmeUdFo

Hm, I hope anyone who bought the X360 version doesn't need to buy it again. Yeah, it's saved in the download lost, but what if they redo the code?

And I'm calling it. Table Pack 17 is Terminator 2, they seem to have it almost done anyways.

Nice. Although I'm sure they said that for people who backed tables and chose PC for their platform, they'd be able to get beta access just to that table. But I haven't seen anything mentioned of it since.

Hopefully you won't have to buy it again. :(

Back when Chillingo gave up publishing Angry Birds for PSP on PSN, and Rovio took over (I hope I have those right) there was a new revision of the binary on PSN ... and old users didn't get access to it unless they asked for it.

Not sure it really got you anything but a different publisher's name when you booted but...

How does Goin' Nuts work? The game starts with 3 balls and you have to keep at least 2 in play or the timer counts down and kills you? Hitting the trapped ball restarts 'multiball?' Anything else I'm missing?

Who's the man? YOU are!

Nice you hear you get some whopper points for that. That's how it starts... I get bent out of shape now when I miss out on IFPA points. Those scores sound good. I got 45 mil at the Metalica launch party but since then I can't get anything over 30. The people here have pushed upto ~175mil and it's going to get higher. I'm terrible at that table and I can't keep it in play. I'll probably have to play it this weekend at the Tourney so I need to practice.

Wow, thanks! To be honest, I really only entered to compare myself and not with any thought to doing anything significant. A mate from Sydney (who I know from GAF, funnily enough) has entered a few comps and he only got ~100k more than me, so I was pretty damn chuffed with that :) Couldn't believe how twitchy the tilt sensor was though. It may have even been buggy, because in my highest-scoring run I tilted on ball 3 while it was in multiball and was sure I barely touched the thing.

My excuse anyway was that it was a Stern table and as a rule... generally shit. Guessing the guys who did better are the sort of bogans who would shell out money for a pinball just because it's Metallica, not because it might be decent. The dude from Sydney and myself had a good old bitching session about them. It felt cathartic ;)

Rad. Looks like I wasted my money on that other one then (kinda) ;)

Hopefully they have an even cheaper bundle for both seasons if you get them together. That reminds me, I should head to my local EB and grab some Steam cash. $1AU=$1US Steam credit for some reason. How much will I need? It should be under $100, yes?

I am not confident over the 360 and X1 versions. MS plans for indie self-publishing is not like PS3, MS limit the access the program will have to the hardware . I guess the indies will be limit to a Windows 8 store and OS partition. Plus I doubt they will have the same features as full games (achievements, leaderboards?). I will be much more like the indie channel in the 360.

How is it they have 43 days to go? Do UK-based Kickstarters get more time or something?

Also, new thread (or old thread bump) worthy?

And are they going under a new name for Kickstarter so people don't see their old KS? Says this one is their first.

Got the latest newsletter, and as I predicted, Terminator 2 is Table Pack #17, and it'll be out by the end of the month for iOS/Android.

Hopefully, there's a big PSN update soon, I'm still waiting on Champion Pub and Whirlwind.

Full text:

The Pinball Arcade is excited to announce that Table Pack 17, Terminator 2: Judgment Day™, will be available later this month for your mobile devices!

As you guys all know, T2 is unquestionably, one of the greatest pinball tables of all time. Designed by the legendary, Steve Ritchie and based on the hit movie, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, including several features that have become pinball standards. It was the first Williams table designed to use a Dot Matrix Display and the first to have a Video Mode feature. It was also the first to feature a Swing Out Cannon that can be fired by the player using a specially designed Gun Grip Ball Launcher. With its dramatic music score, staggering light and sound effects, breathtaking graphics and speech from the one and only Arnold, this table brings the thrills and suspense of T2 to life...and then some.

In this mobile update, the Table of the Month will be Centaur™. You will be able to play for free this great classic table!

We appreciate your support. Without your help, we wouldn't have been able to bring T2 to the Pinball Arcade.

Nope, but it looks like the PS4 version may do the trick, and the PS4 version's lighting effects will be patched into the PC version eventually...

I just acquired my very first wizard goal set, for Centuar, and standard goal set #26, for PinBot. It's amazing what can happen when you get into a good rhythm in both tables.

I also got credit for a wizard goal in PinBot (score 2.5 million points) even though I kept playing after completing that standard goal set. Maybe that's a new feature, I don't know. I did hit 7 million in PinBot and 3 million in Centuar, yay me!

I fucking love Centaur. It was the first one I scored all wizard goals on as well I think. Actually, there may have been another (Bride of Pinbot) but checking now, that was on 360 because I definitely haven't filled in all the wizard goals for it on iOS (unless I lost them all prior to when data backup/restore was implemented).

I'm still not sure on the circumstances for qualifying. I thought you just had to pick PC as one of your tables for either TNG or TZ (or T2, I guess) but I think it's now that you had to put in at leas $100, although I don't know for sure. I have another tab open on PAF so I'mma check and get back to you :)

Yeah, there's something great about a table like that where the rule set is so basic that the focus is on every shot (because it is a drain monster). My big problem with Big Shot, however, is that there is way too much emphasis on the fourth and fifth ball since you only get the 2000 multiplier on the fourth and 3000 on the fifth. I don't mind it being a drain monster, giving me five balls compensates -- but when I drain the wrong ball (like have great balls one through three, then blow four and/or five) that's really annoying.

Another Update for anyone near Colorado that wants to play.

On the 17th of August a new Annual event will happen at Flipper McGill's in Idaho Springs Co. $20 entry and they are are giving a Hard Body pinball table to the winner. It's a machine you'll never at a location and it's pretty cool. I don't think I'll be able to make it but I would recommend the location if you are in the area. McGill sold me my Arcade cabinets and they have worked great.

THE BIG ONE however is the Dory Hill Pinball campout at the Dory HIll Campground near Blackhawk Co. Last year was my first time and it was amazing. It's from the 6th-8th of August. It was 3 days of camping and pinball and it's lots of fun. There is a small tournament Friday night and then Saturday and Sunday are all day events: Golf Format. They set a par score for each game and how many balls it takes are your number of strokes for the 'hole'

I will say I live in Dnever and the alltitude still took it's tole on me. I would wake up, get breakfast, coffee, then have some scotch and I was worn out by mid-day. It's 9800 feet so it can affect you. There will be about 50 people this year, drinking, camping, and going to play poker on Saturday night. The cabins at the campground are booked but anyone can get a spot for a camper or tent. This year I may just stay in my car! Full facilities are on hand and it's one of the most friendly crowds you will ever see for pinball. Last time the tourny owner got us a big keg of beer and some kind of homemade whiskey we dubbed 'Wild Cherry Nightmare'

Basically everyone brings a table and sets them up around the camp site and you walk to each one and play 18 holes of pinball. It was also cold as hell last year but we are having it a few weeks earlier so I don't think it will be that rough.

Well, if you get all balls of a certain type (solids or stripes) you get a light on the center obstacle which grants a replay. Right? That's what I meant. Sorry. :)

Wow, I thought the Rollergames pinball was the campiest-themed table out there... but Hardbody takes the cake.

Edit: Slightly unrelated, but the PAPA TV thing seems to be coming along well. This is *part* of the receipt for the t-shirts sent out as part of the Kickstarter rewards:

TPA will be coming back under the guise of self-publishing rather than going through those guys. Unless there's some rights thing where Fillpoint thinks they still own the rights or something.

Hope this doesn't somehow jeopardise the content I've already bought for it.

FWIW I think the whole "indie developer" thing was going to be active as of August (for 360) but don't quote me on that.

Party Monsters is my favorite Pinball Arcade table. I dig the crappy sound. Voice samples always sounded terrible in the actual arcade. More realistic if it sounds terrible.

News is still the same, beta in a week or so (I believe they're waiting to be approved for generating the beta keys - first time you need a more thorough approval), full release of everything late August, though realistically now probably September. Season packs will be available at release, so I'm not quite sure what that works out to, $90 or something for both seasons?

Yeah, $90 for everything. I'm hoping for a super discount bundle where everything is $60 or some significant savings. I just blew $80 of the $90 I saved up in stuff today. I know...

Haha, wow!

I just got back from a 17-day drive-around the Southwest with only my PSVita for pinball. I get back on my PS3 and... wow. The difference. I knew the PSVita wasn't obviously up to the PS3's quality but it's stark once you don't see one for a while and get back to it. Still, hard to beat the portability -- was great for the vacation.

I did make it to the Pinball Hall of Fame and had a blast. My blog for that day is at http://www.bigweathergames.com/?p=2091. Note: I write these vacation blogs late at night when we finally get to the hotel room and the family has gone to bed. So they ain't exactly amazing prose. If anyone has any questions about the PHoF or any of my trips (done a ton of them in the last four years, all blogged, covering most of the country) just let me know!
