I got this game today, and I'm really enjoying it so far! It seems like learning how to use each table is a process, you start off not knowing what is going on (even with the tutorial), and as you play, you slowly get adjusted to each table's features. It gives a nice sense of exploration to this game, and I can't wait to see the launch of the DLC tables.
As for The Pinball Arcade, according to Facebook, the 3DS version will be out in March at the earliest and the Wii U version will launch along with its digital store.

I'm enjoying this game a lot..
but I have 2 questions, first on the Shaman table, the middle bumper on the right side sometimes stops working is it supposed to be like this or is it some bug or something?
and the second question, what is the point of nudging the table? i mean when is it used? what I thought (and used it once for this purpose) is when the ball got stuck in some place and stopped moving.. is that it?

Nudging, if used correctly will keep the ball from going straight down the middle of the table where its just outta reach from either flipper. Its kinda hard to time and I'm no expert at doing this, but their has been a few times I've been able to aviod a "ballout" by nudging the table either way. It will move the ball just enough that one of the flippers will catch it.

@cheapogamer4life I've seen some of your scores and would like to exchange friend codes if you like. I've beaten all the scores so far on my friend list and I'm aiming for you next on earth defence. It going to take some time but I think I can do it. I need something to shoot for!

@cheapogamer4life yeah that makes sense.. although I wish they would have made it possible to nudge the table using the 3DS's gyroscope as my hands are too busy with the shoulder buttons and I don't keep my thumb on the circle pad all the time..

You'll get used to it and it will become second nature. I play with the shoulder buttons and with my left thumb on the circle pad at all times in every pinball game I have (in which I have lots of them). Nudging is very useful although some people (like my friend) never use the feature for whatever reason. Anyway, don't nudge it too hard or the table will 'tilt' which locks up the flippers and causes the ball to drain (the proper term for losing the ball).

@Tech Sure. I've notice you on the leardboards as well and knew that it was you! I'll add you soon as I'm currently looking to best your score on the knights table too. :p

@cure I agree with that too. Custom controls should be standard these days. Honestly I'm always using the control+b combo as it seems the most comfortable to me. L+R plus sweaty plams plus large hands its a good mix with dealing with the 3ds form factor.

@donjwolf I'm still working on it but I find that since I only use the control+b method I'm limited to only being able to nudge right and hope I'll be able to catch it with the right flipper. Seems useless to try to nugde up or down when the ball is heading straight down the center area. Left nudge is(for me) impossible to do and keep a firm grip of the 3ds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, any other view seven fans in here. I've been really loving that view out of all the rest of them. That slightly zoom out mode and always having the flippers in view is the only way that I've been able to get anywhere with this game. Works great for the two tables I've tried so far( the alien and knights table). I've only run into problems when there's a multi-ball run the alien table. The cam zooms way to far out to be able to focus on anything and I'm stuck trying to cycle through the different views to find something more suitable.

I also use the control pad plus b combo. No way could I use the should buttons to play this game. As a matter of fact both my thumbs are starting to hurt a little bit now. I think I'm playing to much!

@Donjwolf You also seem to be good competition. Would you mind adding me as well. I'm starting to look to the leader boards to see who I can knock out. I'd rather shoot for scores from nl people!

Edit: I'm with cheapogamer4life on the tilt thing. I also only tilt right as its to hard to do with the method I play. I usually only bump the table when it goes in the far left or right holes as I've been successful in getting.g it out of there a few times right back out the middle hole!

Hey let us get one thing straight here. I may love pinball, but in no way am I actually good at it. Still, if you wish to add me my FC is 4468-1025-6646

I'll add you later. I'm eating lunch now. Would you mind me sending you Swapnotes as well? I like to draw American cartoon style characters (my own original ones and copyrighted ones) and I sometimes send photos as well of crap like food and pets and weird things.

P.S. I am the opposite of you guys. I can never play pinball games comfortably if I can't use the triggers as flipper buttons. I find this configuration best emulates an actual pinball table more and it helps that it makes it easier to nudge in this position. Some of the PC games I have don't support controllers so I use a profiler to do so. I hate playing pinball games with a keyboard. Note: Tilt is when you actually nudge too hard and locks up the table so saying 'tilt' when you mean 'nudge' isn't the proper way to say it. Lots of people use it interchangeably though so I don't really mind but I just wanted to inform you.

I've added @tech and @don.

@don Interesting tibit about the L+R combo. Safe to say mastering the nugde feature is key then. I'm starting to think that it maybe be the only way to keep the ball in play long enough to achive an mind blowing score like I've seen on the leaderboards so far.

@cheapogamer4life,

Yes exactly. If you want to get good scores you have to master nudging. That's the key. You have to learn when to nudge and how much force to apply to prevent the ball from draining. Always remember to nudge in the -opposite- direction that the ball is heading. Don't get too carried away though or else the machine will tilt and you lose all your bonuses and your ball!

P.S. I'm going out for a bit so I won't add you until I return. Tata!

@don thanks for the advice. I'll be willing to try that control method again if it will give me more strategy options.

If anyone else would like to add me as well just let me know.

@Cheapo, you'll probably find it odd at first if you've been using other buttons but you'll may start finding it a bit more intuitive. Use your index fingers for the triggers and that leaves your thumbs easily accessible for nudging. Your scores should invariably go up as you improve. To me, that control option is the only way to properly play pinball. Nudging takes skill to master.
