Oh, Dear God, Please Let An Archer Pinball FX 2 Table Happen

Granted, this is only a bunch of dudes talking over Twitter, but these dudes are ones who work on Pinball FX 2 and Archer, and both seem to favour the idea of creating a virtual pinball table for the outrageously funny espionage spoof.

Major caveat: “End of the day, it’s FX’s call though,” tweeted Neal Holman, the show’s art director. As in FX the network that broadcasts the show, not Pinball FX. If it was up to the guys in charge of that game, they’d do it pronto.

“That would be A-mazing! Archer is literally the only TV show I have watched outside Netflix in the last 2 years,” replied Neil Sorens, the Pinball FX 2 creative director. “PLEASE DO,” replied the Zen Studios general Twitter feed (likely being manned by Zen’s Mel Kirk) when Holman said he “will put them in touch with whoever they need.”

Archer‘s running gags are often strafed by sexual innuendo, so creating a table that really hits the show’s tone might require a bump up in ESRB rating. It’s currently rated E, with “Comic Mischief” as its only content descriptor. Archer would definitely supply lots of that. But goddamn, just doing that table, whatever its missions are and whatever animated eye-candy it supplies, would be uber-fan service to two very loyal constituencies.

  • I give tv shows of any kind one (or at best two) shots to get my attention. By shots I mean episodes. Archer was one of the least funny things I’ve ever seen and I can laugh at almost anything. From British dark, dry, witty humour (Black Books, Guy Ritchie film etc) to crass American nonsense (Porky’s through to Epic Movie). I will laugh. Archer though? Not even a smirk.

    It’s like Game of Thrones which is LOTR meets Days of our Lives. A complete waste of valuable entertainment resources.

    • are you deliberately trolling? I always see your posts, and they seem to come from a paranoid, basement dwelling shut-in, and i base that purely on the way you conduct yourself on here.

      • Nope. That’s genuine. And if by “paranoid, basement dwelling shut-in” you mean single guy with his own place who spends more time out with friends (or at least at work) than at home then you’ve got me pegged.

  • How about you’re just a fuck wit with a shitty sense of humour and a xenophobic moron? Yeah thats got you “pegged”. Idiot.

    • Did I not establish my broad sense of humour in a previous comment? Because if my sense of humour is shit then that means a vast majority of comedy shows, movies and comedians are shit since I enjoy them. Also how exactly am I xenophobic?
