    I'm sure it is Zen's. Note also the wood effect in the background, as is used in the Williams/Bally environment. Obviously it could be pre-rendered rather than running in-game but still, it looks cool.

    I'm hoping the table lighting is more in line with Fish Tales this time, with some beautiful clear plastic ramps.

    Intrigued as to what the other tables could be. It would be good to see a top non-DMD in there as a kind of statement-of-intent for supporting those.

    Well, we all have our favorites! I think I just don't care for part of the layout. I like the theme, I like the shot placement, but it just doesn't hit a home run for me.

    In the arcades, I loved some of the old school EM machines. Overall, the original Indiana Jones table was incredible, as was Addams Family and Twilight Zone.

    Then The Comet, Elvira, and even Windstorm were all pretty great for me. I'd still like to see a recreation of Jungle Lord, even though it's just sort of a weird Black Knight knockoff.

    Ooh well now I hope it's Jackbot but i wonder how edited down the console would have to be since it's all gambing thankfully not an issue on steam.

    Looks like it's Red and Ted, WW, and Hurricane pinball for vol 4, not a bad group of tables.

    I'm pumped for whitewater and road show and hopeful that I'll like hurricane with the zen treatment.

    Pleased with the White Water and Road Show announcement, though I'm less thrilled by the inclusion of Hurricane. I really wanted WHO Dunnit? this time around.

    Volume 1 (4 tables) 10/9/2018
    Volume 2 (3 tables) 12/4/2018
    Volume 3 (3 tables) 3/19/2019
    Volume 4 (3 tables) 5/28/2019

    13 tables in 8 months. Not quite 2 per month but thats a pretty amazing pace. 70 days since the last release. If pace remains about the same, the next pack would be around 8/5 or 8/12. V6 October /November. And then the DMD’s are done unless we get a licensed table or non DMD mixed in there.

    Ugh. If Whitewater was replaced by Jackbot, this would be the worst possible combination of tables (for me)

    Edit: I’m being melodramatic. I was hoping for a system 11, like either Taxi or Fire!

    I got 1 out of 3 right. Nice that there are two tables I'd consider "top-tier" in there (WH20, R&T). And Hurricane will always be the table that got me into pinball in the first place so has huge nostalgia factor attached.

    Hurricane has actually always been a personal favorite in TPA - their implementation is very smooth and shoots well, up there with their implementation of Judge Dredd. From a rules standpoint, though, it's pretty much a one-shot table, similar in a lot of ways to Bride of Pinbot - there are many many SS tables that have deeper and more interesting rules. Still, it will be a fun addition to the collection.

    I'm very excited about White Water and Road Show, they are both great - some of the best competitive pinball I have watched on Youtube is on White Water, it has a very deep strategy risk/reward ruleset. Road show has lots of interesting shots and a variety of modes. And both WW and Road Show have a nice feeling of progression as you go down the river/across the country.

    Whitewater and Roadshow are easily in my top 10 favorite games, so this pack is definitely my favorite so far. Hopefully I'll end up enjoying Hurricane, haven't played it much, but most people seem to consider it pretty average.

    Assuming Zen is only doing DMD and for a fact unlicensed in ‘Volume’ packs, that leaves 6 left...

    TotAN
    Jack*Bot
    Cactus Canyon
    Who Dunnit?
    No Good Gofers
    Cirqus Voltaire

    I await the pack order predictions in the next speculation thread!

    Well let's see...

    Volume 2 was the first Bally pack, and Volume 3 threw more Bally games in. 4 Williams and 6 Bally.

    Volume 4 balances it back with a total of 7 Williams and 6 Bally.

    What I'm predicting is that Volume 5 will be all Bally and Volume 6 will be the rest.

    I also like the look of the licensed pins they've got in the office:

    Star Wars Episode 1
    Metallica
    Indiana Jones
    Star Trek Next Generation
    Twilight Zone

    Also Mel mentioned before on Blahcade they have an AC/DC although that wasn't shown in this video

    Yep, hard to complain about that. We are also supposed to get a licensed table or two this year as their own release, just don't know when.

    My bet is November. As that’s after dmds are done and lines up with my Terminator prediction on the other thread.

    On first impression, White Water looks great... lighting and plastics are looking very nice. And it looks like that has been translated across to Hurricane. Nice

    But man, Road Show looks flaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaattttt. Where's the nice lighting on that one Zen?

    Happy it's included but it just looks unfinished to me.

    Hopefully it will be improved before release, because I really don't wan't another set of inconsistently recreated tables. Had enough of that with Farsight.

    I feel your pain. Would be nice to get some of those system 11 tables on Zen.

    Well if we follow the ‘all Bally’ or ‘all Williams’ line of thinking, it’ll be TotAN, JB, NGG in one, CV, WD?, CC in the other.

    Could do with some more spit and polish all round I think. Red and Ted are both lacking in some shine especially. The overall look is just not great imo.

    Look at around the 5:20 mark in this:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhO9addbe0U

    Also why the blue side rails? Aren't all Roadshow's fitted with chrome versions? Even the one Akos is standing next to in the video has chrome side rails.
