While Pinball FX 2 is pretty much ubiquitous at this point, it’s a recent addition to Steam, which means there’s tons of old tables for Zen Studios to sell there still. One of said old tables is the Captain America one, first spotted on consoles way back in 2011 when the movie came out. But, hey, it’s new to somebody, right? This table costs $2.99. Look inside for a big shot of the table.

You can now pick up a four-pack of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara on Steam for $45. The pack includes four complete bundles of the remastered Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. Having a couple of extra games handy is a perfect way to entice a few mates into the drop-in, drop-out co-op, I guess.
Thanks, Capcom Unity.
