Pinball FX3 – TIE Fighters And Ball Jugglers (Jimpressions)




Some folks have been lukewarm on Pinball FX3, but personally IR;m digging the hell out of it.

Plus, that sort of backwards compatibility and “pay for the game you want” model is a rare and pleasant sight.

  1. See there Jim, is what separates you, from most journalists who write reviews. You admit when something is beyond your taste, or something you have little knowhow to review, good man!

  2. The prices for this aren’t too bad, honestly. $3 for a table, $2.5/table in bundles, Bethesda tables are a bit more per table, bundles of tables are discounted; $195.77 for all the tables (not factoring in bundle discounts), 784 games would pay off the price based on quarter machines. Not too bad, I don’t think someone would play 784 games within a short time span honestly, so their ‘pay as you want more themes’ model is brilliant and the price is easily manageable over time, even more manageable if they offer discounts during sales.
    Other companies should take not of how they’re providing additional content, because this is the right way to do it.

  3. huh …. i think i wanna buy me that game, looks like relaxed fun

  4. Can we start a kickstarter or something to commission a Jimquisition Pinball table? I’d play that.

  5. Oh Jim you are so 1337(episode length) at pinball.

  6. When we’ll get a Jimquisition pinball?

  7. I just have started to play Spacecadet 3D (The Win XP Pinball) thanks to Playonlinux and its awesome. And i am always on the look out for good pinball games. Sadly, the tables in FX3 look way to cluttered for me. And the sound design is not to my liking, with to little impact when the ball hits stuff.

  8. pinball games have a large assortment of ball jokes

  11. I like playing zen pinball on my phone. With the simple controls and how the tables fit nicely on the screen it really works well 8)

  12. To be fair, captain Phasma with a Star Destroyer AI voice would be pretty neat.

  13. My only problem with the various pinball games: not having common purchases across the various formats. Might just be me being cheap, but, for example, if I buy a table on the PS4 I want an account that lets me play that same table on my mobile phone, why should I have to pay for it again?

    I find myself not buying tables because I know I’m probably only going to play them a few times, whereas, if I knew I could also play it on another system, i.e. a quick play on my phone whilst waiting for a doctor/dentist appointment, I’d be much more willing to plonk down the cash.

    The devs probably think that they’re getting more money, making purchases platform specific, but they’re definitely losing out on mine.
