Atari says a new RollerCoaster Tycoon in the works for PC

RollerCoaster Tycoon was announced for iOS this past week. The response was as expected, and our own Jordan Devore in particular was pretty bummed out that it was coming just for mobile devices. Well turn that frown upside do...

SimCity can finally be played offline

Update 10 is available today for SimCity, meaning you can finally play the game offline. Without an Internet connection. By yourself. Like every single past Sim City game ever. EA has an FAQ on what you can expect, such as ho...

Predictable: New RollerCoaster Tycoon announced for iOS
by Jordan Devore

The 60 thumbs up and over 2,300 thumbs down the announcement trailer for RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile has received on YouTube truly says it all. But let's continue anyway: this will be a $2.99 download for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. How many more beloved PC brands must we see tarnished on mobile? All of them? It's starting to feel that way.

"Create and share the coolest amusement park of your dreams and construct incredible roller coasters to keep your visitors excited. Build the best park, unlock new materials, and exchange roller coaster blueprints with friends to become the ultimate RollerCoaster Tycoon!" Right.

Prior to the announcement, Atari was teasing the game on Twitter and immediately people assumed it was going to be a mobile title as opposed to the proper, full-fledged PC game long-time fans have been awaiting. It's as predictable a situation as it is disappointing.

Giant mecha battle! Japanese Chroma Squad trailer is great

We heard about Chroma Squad last year and it looks great. It's one half Sentai studio management sim, one half tactical, turn-based battler. You buy better actors, special effects, answer fan mail and fight people. I like it...

Coffee Stain Studios talks Goat Simulator's origin, release date

Sanctum developer Coffee Stain Studios has written about the birth of Goat Simulator, a hilarious thing that at one point wasn't going to be a real game until enough of us demanded it. We needed this. "After a day or two we ...

Warehouse and Logistics Simulator gets zombie DLC

When I saw that a game called Warehouse and Logistics Simulator had been released, I thought "Yeah, makes sense the way the Simulator franchise has been heading." Really, I've just been holding out for Car Park Attendant Simu...

T-wrecked: Arma 3 getting a dinosaur mod

Arma always seems like the reasonable next step for people who like Battlefield for its tactical or somewhat sim-like elements. Apparently it's the next destination for those who enjoy Battlefield's dinosaur Easter eggs as well, because someone is making a full dinosaur mod for Arma 3. I am excited for it. Dinosaurs should be the next zombie. Throw 'em in everything.

Hack the planet: Disrupt is up on Steam Greenlight

Despite all of the art and design that goes into creating expansive worlds in an effort to create immersion, few games make the player actually feel like he is doing the things on screen quite like Uplink once did. Certainly...

Week made: Goat Simulator will become a real game

The thing many of us desperately wanted to happen is going to: Coffee Stain Studios has relented and will turn its humorous Goat Simulator concept into a real game. Or was this -- putting the idea out there and seeing if peo...

Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 is a real game that exists

Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 is game that actually exists now. It has all the exciting features you'd expect in a car mechanic simulator, from unscrewing screws to using a laptop computer to check the tuning. What the hell di...

Become a dentist in Surgeon Simulator for iPad

I love and hate Surgeon Simulator 2013, but mostly, I love it. Losing is hilarious at first, don't get me wrong. Then that humor begins to fade away as you repeatedly fail to complete the same objective over and over again b...

You can now mod SimCity but only so far

We've said it plenty of times before but mods for PC games are great. Mod support is something I look for in games but it was no surprise that SimCity didn't allow mods. With the game being online all the time I assumed that ...

Review: X Rebirth photo
Review: X Rebirth
by Joshua Derocher

The X series is known for being a little rough out of the gate, so when X Rebirth came out with some major bugs, no one was really surprised. Egosoft has been releasing a lot of patches, but the game is still borderline unplayable. It's more than just a few weird glitches or flaws -- nothing in X Rebirth feels ready to be played.

Beyond just being glitchy, the core gameplay mechanics are flawed. The menu systems are hard to navigate, it's hard to know what you should be doing or what you can do, doing a simple task is an exercise in patience, and I always felt like I was fighting the game's mechanics to get anything done.

There is some good stuff in here, but anything worth playing in X Rebirth was done better by X3: Terran Conflict. X Rebirth was supposed to be a new starting point for the series, a game to bring in new players while keeping the old spirit alive. Instead, we have a game that scares away newcomers and upsets fans of the series.

Not really a winner in my book.
