Nolan North returns as the Merc with a Mouth in Deadpool Pinball

Heh. There's a mini Deadpool pinball table in this Deadpool pinball table. That's fun. Quick-time events, even if they're supposed to be a joke? Less fun. But I like that Zen Studios is giving Deadpool a table all his own --...

Pinball FX 2 comes to Steam on May 10

Marvel Pinball 3D to hit 3DS eShop this week photo
Marvel Pinball 3D to hit 3DS eShop this week
by Conrad Zimmerman

If you have been anticipating the release of more pinball goodness for your Nintendo 3DS, you won't have to wait long at all. Announced less than a month ago in the run up to this year's E3, Zen Studios' Marvel Pinball 3D is slated to hit the Nintendo eShop this week, on June 28. Featuring four tables based on Marvel Comics properties (Blade, Iron Man, Captain America and The Fantastic Four), the pack will set you back $7.99 (€7.00).

These are all solid tables, particularly Captain America and Fantastic Four. I could take or leave the Iron Man one which, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to hit my stride in. Still, great games and now portable with a 3D effect you can turn off after five minutes when you decide to get serious about playing some pinball. Hooray!

Avengers Chronicles features the best pinball tables yet photo
Avengers Chronicles features the best pinball tables yet
by Brett Zeidler

There are two things in this world that consistently remain on my top-ten of all-time favorite things ever: Pinball and The Avengers. The fact that those two things are coming together in not only one, but four tables as part of the Avengers Chronicles has me giddy beyond imagination. I've been waiting what feels like forever for these tables to launch.

So, you know I was ready for the pinball portion of my appointment with Zen Studios last week at E3 alongside Destructoid's resident pinball aficionado Conrad Zimmerman. We only had time to check out two of the tables as Zen had been showing us quite a bit of their two newly announced titles, KickBeat and CastleStorm. Those two tables were all it took to sell me on the entire pack.

Pinball has to be one of the hardest hobbies to talk about. On the surface, it's about hitting a metal ball around a slanted table, with some flippers, in the hopes of keeping it from failing down a hole. In reality though, videogames' grandfather hides behind its simplistic exterior an often more robust and deep gaming experience.

To their credit, few (if any) have captured the essence of this once popular pastime in the videogame landscape better than Zen Studios. They've made some truly amazing tables that go far beyond the world of pinball and seamlessly merge it with the digital age. Thankfully, they finally announced the last character for their upcoming Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue DLC pack, so I can finally share my thoughts on the four new tables that are coming very soon.
