    Official Williams Volume 2 news



    Volume 2 of the Williams collection in FX3 will be 3 Bally tables!

    - Attack From Mars
    - Black Rose
    - Party Zone

    Pack will be available in December for $9.99 on December 4th. In addition to the 3 tables, a few changes to the game itself are included. Event cameras can now be toggled on and off in the options menu. For PC users, Family Mode can also be toggled which will give the option of fully uncensored art and DMD versus the current edited versions. Consoles still won't have this feature as Zen is currently looking into what they are allowed to do within rating they have. Apparently this is not required for Steam.

    For more info, listen to the BlahCade Pinball Podcast #155 where we have a 30 minute interview with Mel Kirk.

    I'd like to see more muscular thighs on Black Rose. Make the thighs match the backglass please. Just kidding, all three look very nice. Wonder if Party Zone will have all of the music, that would be a nice plus.

    The quality looks to be there again. Maybe Zen can get me to like Party Zone finally.

    Looks like the issue of weak flashers has not been fixed though... AFM flashers appear to have the same issues as they did in MM, The Getaway and Junk Yard. Those flying saucers really put on a show IRL and on the trailer they are just glowing . I hope this is something they address down the line as they develop more packs and also fix retroactively on the older tables.

    We’ve mentioned the flashers in the beta, especially for Strobe Multiball. Don’t know if it’ll be addressed or not, as that’s the sort of thing that might conflict with adjustable lighting. Which we also don’t know if we’ll ever get.

    I kinda love that Party Zone, a crossover between previous pinball machines, is being released before they are.

    In any event, I can't wait to get my hands on these. The first volume was easily the best those tables have ever looked digitally, and this should follow suit.

    I also secretly love Black Rose, even though I know opinions vary. My friends and I once tracked one down in real life, the only machine in a weird bar across town. It was about as well maintained as you'd expect.

    Hope they fix the PS4 audio bug where a loud static noise plays when to many other sounds play at once...

    Not big on either Black Rose or Party Zone but glad those two got out of the way in the same pack. Do wish they had done Radical! instead of Party Zone for an 80s themed table since that hasn't been digitized before (outside of VP). Not my favorite either but at least it would have been something new.

    Great news but I'm going to be picky I thought Zen said that there will be four more tables released before the end of the year?

    Does this apply also to Fish Tales? And to missing sound effects like in JY? If yes: awesome! This means that I will be able to look forward to upcoming tables

    Party Zone and Black Rose are just not that interesting for me to buy again. So I’m basically paying ten bucks for AFM. Sorry Zen. I’m skipping this pack. Back to Red Dead.

    AFM is worth $10 by itself, though...

    All tables will have both of these options, even in the original artwork.

    TPA's Party Zone does not have Purple Haze. Apparently they're not easy to work with.

    I get people not being excited by Black Rose and Party Zone, or not enough to want to purchase again. I will say in the beta, they play so differently from TPA as to feel like a different game. Also the enhanced Party Zone is the standout of the bunch, similar to how MM was in the last pack.

    Zen has always been pretty generous with putting stuff on sale, so I’m sure in a year’s time a discount of 50% off will make it irresistible.

    Podcast #155 isn't "publicly available" on ShoutEngine... oversight or just not quite ready yet?

    Hmmm, will have to see what’s wrong. The YouTube version is up though.

    I tweeted at everyone too, I can wait. Will probably have to work from home tomorrow due to snow so will be able to listen then.

    Not super thrilled with this pack. Party Zone gets old fast, even in real life. The uncensored PC announcement is more exciting. I'll buy Pack 2 on Steam to support them for that in the hopes that they are still trying to find a console solution.

    But probably won't bother making any more console purchases until they do.

    I was hoping so as well, but knew it’d be a long shot. Jimi would be rolling over in his grave if he knew how his estate was being so greedily managed, God rest his soul. Even a lot of the Hendrix documentaries I’ve watched had to use generic music, which is beyond ridiculous. It’s a cryin’ shame, as Jimi would say.

    That said, I usually turn the music down on the ROMs and crank up my own tunes anyway, so it won’t affect me, but the world can always use more Hendrix, so hopefully one day they’ll be able to negotiate a deal. I’m also still holding out hope for an official Jimi machine someday, but I know it’s surely a pipe dream.
