I recently got back into playing the first Theme Park game. It was this morning when I realised I'd been playing the game for over 5 hours and still hadn't gotten out of bed that I realised I may have something of an addiction going on. Especially when it took me another 2 hours to actually stop playing.
PSA, if you are somewhat lacking in money right now here's a little piece of prime advice.
DO NOT OPEN STEAM!
Seriously, the Steam winter sale (on until Jan 7th) is the sort of good that makes anal sex seem poor by comparison. If you're in the UK then here's a few prime picks, Braid, Audiosurf, Evil Genius and STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl are all under £2 each. There's a shitton of other stuff under £2 and an entire section for sub-£4 stuff (including Defense Grid, Mirror's Edge and the hilarious Time Gentlemen Please) so if you're a little strapped for cash you should maybe check that bit out at least. Some deals are changing every day, I believe you can get GTA4 for £5 for a few more hours.
So basically, if you've missed any PC exclusive game over the last 10 years, here's a nice cheap way of catching up. There's also the Good Old Games winter sale as well, their entire catalogue is still discounted and I highly recommend RPG fans check out Septerra Core while it's on the cheap.
Anyway, that's my bit for this week. Have an excellent Christmas everyone and I'll see you next week.
