Scratch that: Pinball FX2 for Xbox One will support Xbox 360 table imports

Zen Studios announced that its pinball platform Pinball FX2 would come to Xbox One on July 31 but in doing so broke the unfortunate news that tables purchased on Xbox 360 couldn't be transferred to the new version. Yeah, that...

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 --...

Telltale's The Walking Dead being reborn as a pinball machine in Zen Pinball 2

Not only is Telltale's Walking Dead series coming to Zen Pinball 2, it's shambling. Or staggering. Or one of the hundreds of zombie-related puns I thought about using for the headline before deciding to play it straight. But...

Star Wars Pinball's final Masters of the Force table looks nuts

It feels like Zen Studios has been working on Star Wars Pinball for years now, and that's because it has. This trailer for one of the four featured tables of Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within, appropriately titled "Masters of...

CastleStorm on the Wii U is a solid port

CastleStorm has hit the Wii U, and if you haven't picked it up yet, this is a great chance to do so. Some people have described it as "Angry Birds with Vikings," but that's doing it a bit of a disservice. Yes it has a me...

PC Port Report: KickBeat

Last year, KickBeat released on PS3 and PS Vita, and we quite liked the "music dressed up as a fighting game." The final word on it was that it featured solid rhythm gameplay, but was held back by a few questionable song choi...

Review: Zen Pinball 2 (PS4)
by Brett Zeidler

You've no doubt run into at least one of Zen Studios' pinball platforms by now, appearing on virtually every current device out there that can play games (the only exception being Xbox One as of right now). They hit it big over the years with numerous licensed and original tables such as Star Wars, Marvel, Plants vs. Zombies, Ninja Gaiden, and Street Fighter, with many more surely on their way for 2014.

After landing on the Wii U last year, the PlayStation 4 is the next current-gen system to get the pinball treatment from Zen Studios in the form of Zen Pinball 2. Those who have checked out any past incarnation know what to expect, but newcomers are definitely in for a treat should they jump in -- which they absolutely should.

CastleStorm launches on to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita photo
CastleStorm launches on to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita
by Conrad Zimmerman

CastleStorm, a fun blend of tower defense mechanics and projectile flinging from Zen Studios, arrives today on the PlayStation Network. Previously released on Xbox 360 and PC, the game is now available on PS3 or PS Vita for $9.99.

Not a bad little game. There are some elements of strategic planning to building a castle which I like and I love how distinct the two army types are in play. But I did start to feel like I was just using the same strategy over and over and that caused me to lose interest near the end of the campaign.

Still, it's worth checking out. There's a free demo available for both platforms in the PlayStation Store too, so I'd recommend giving it a download and trying it on if you like the idea of base defense multitasking.
