  • Review: Pinball FX3

    Zen Studios continues to set a high bar for video game pinball. I honestly didn’t think they could do any better than Pinball FX2/Zen Pinball 2, and even though Pinball FX3 feels more like an incremental step forward rather than an evolutionary leap into the […]

  • Review: Marvel’s Venom Pinball

    Spider-Man took the spotlight in the initial Marvel Pinball pack, and now, over four years later, Zen Studios finally brings the series full circle with a table dedicated to Spidey’s archenemy, Venom. Although Venom gets top billing in the latest addition to the Marvel Pinball […]
