Dream Pinball 3D first screens

Dream Pinball 3D first screens

Fanatics pinball machines while you see, helpless, the closing of your favorite arcades? Perhaps SouthPeak has the solution with its videogame Dream Pinball 3D intended for Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and PC. Programmed for a spring 2008 launch, it includes six unique machines. The Wii version makes use of the Wiimote whereas the DS build uses its touch screen in order to accentuate the immersion factor. What that gives one cannot say, but I like what I see if only for nostalgia purposes.

it'll be neat shaking the wiimote to get the pinball machine to shake. btw who actually shaked those pinball machines in real life I always see shaking the machine implemented in pinball videogames but I never did that to a real pinball machine.

I did, and that was one month ago (or less). Sometimes, the ball(s) get stuck in the machine, and you have to hit/shake it in order to continue and unjam it. True story.

I've seen people do it, saw a kid tilt a machine once when he dropped the end (and it was LOUD)

Looking good on the PC and DS side of things, not so much on the Wii (talking graphics only here). Not sure why the textures are so low res but it's definitely not a hardware restriction, as the Xbox with less RAM had pinball games that looked better.

Don't think the DS visuals are really that bad actually. It's the Wii-ones that disappoint me.

@Positive commenters: did you know there already is quite a decent pinball game for the Wii? The only downsize of Gottliebs Pinball Classics is it's a bit hard.

About the game

    Sdarts Even if you have the money, if the place where you're gonna put your TV and the viewing distance should always be taken into account. If you don't have a big room, don't buy a very big TV. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: If you do any basic research into TVs, you will find out that viewing distance and display size are very important factors when deciding to buy a TV. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (5 Hours ago)

    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (14 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (21 Hours ago)
