    Farsight Studios closing?

    I just read that Farsight’s social spokesperson (among many other things) Mike Lindsey is among most of the FS staff being laid off. I know TPA hasn’t been relevant in a while, but if this is the end, it’s still a sad day.

    Players of Farsight's The Pinball Arcade on Android devices may have had an issue if they bought a new device recently as the game is no longer available on the Google Play store. We reached out to FarSight to find out what was happening, and Community Manager, Mike Lindsey, told us "We are...

So what happens when your experience is interrupted by a game funding model that sucks the life out of your enjoyment of...

    Cabinet Mode for TPA via Arcooda Software

    FarSight has been working on custom software with Arcooda, makers of video pinball cabinets. This is the cabinet mode many have been clamoring for, but it's no mere camera angle port. Unfortunately the announcement of the loss of the WMS license has put a huge kink in Arcooda's plans, mainly...

    Stern Pinball Arcade returns to Google Play

    Stern Pinball Arcade is coming back on Google Play with a limited release right now. This means, you will only be able to install it, if your device is supported. This is true for newer Samsungs and high end devices. FarSight plans to expand supported devices over time.
  14. Psy-Q

    Very torn about Farsight as a company (sort of rant but also a question, confused)

    I've held off on buying any tables for maybe three years now, playing TOTAN from time to time but mostly doing Visual Pinball. I do love the look of the TPA tables, but somehow I can't decide what to think about Farsight and so I don't know if I should actually buy a few season packs. Somehow...

    Fish Tales - First Impression

    Ok, figured I would start this one. Where to start. Ok this is a fast table. Graphically, well it's kind of a mixed bag, the playfield and backbox look damn good, but the plastics look like crap. Otherwise nice geometry. I checked things out in the exploration mode and I'm pretty...

    Flippin' Out With...Scott Shelton of FarSight

    I am a pinthusiast. Someone mentions pinball, and I’m all ears. Get me started talking about pinball and it’s hard to shut me up. I have my opinions and I’m all too happy to express them, whether you care to hear them or not. My wife can attest to this all too well, which is why she tells me to...
