Well, what can we say, right now? If you, as a fiery and proud Simmer, were planning to break the piggy bank with your hard-earned Euro (or, as you like to call: real-life §imoleans!) in an average MMO full of blood, anger, and legendary topaz swords, do us both a favour and postpone it for a minimum of two years. That’s because the news we’re about to give you will leave you so amazed and shocked that we’re already here with the proper quantity of stretchers and remedies as we inform you about the triumphant (albeit unofficial) return of The Sims Online, even if all you have in your wallets are distracted and dusty flies.
Hey, my beautiful Earth people! First of all, I’m lucpix (OK, it’s only my war codename, I’m actually Lucas) and I’m glad to start off this crazy writing journey talking a little about the possibly unknown sides of the gaming world, since the beginning of all! Sit back and enjoy the ride, my friend:
I bet that you’re going to agree with me: It’s always COOL when they make remakes of the old games, even if they don’t make it properly, huh? Well. Fortunately, there’s these insistent and lovely fans that make them by themselves and sometimes they can get even better than the original game (We are fans and we know what we want to play, after all!).
Today, I’ll proudly raise a flag for RetroSpec! It’s an old and indie game company that put together a lot of great programmers and artists to innovate and recreate some of the few known Sinclair’s ZX Spectrum goodies from the 80’s. Do you know the best part of it?!: they are truly a must-play! And the best part: They are slow-PC-friendly! And the best part!! […]
I am back with another CPU highlight! I felt like going a bit retro with this one, and I guarantee as soon as I start talking about this game you’ll all become very nostalgic with me and rejoice in this epic game. If I told you that this game allowed you to become the world’s best roller coaster maker, and a serial killer all in the same game, what would you say? [Waits for responses]… Thought you might have said that! The game I am highlighting today is Rollercoaster Tycoon.
I remember receiving this game while opening up a box of cereal and being super excited. As a child growing up my parents wouldn’t buy us any video games, nor would they buy us any game they didn’t see fit for us. SO this was a real treat! (Relate with me everyone; you were once in my shoes!)
The game starts out very basic. You are in charge of making a grade A amusement park: From roller coasters, to water slides, right to merry-go-rounds and Ferris wheels. It was your job to bring joy to the computerized people who would immediately come into the park. This game also gave you objectives to complete to gain special access to certain rides, and other features. What was so realistic about this game was the weather that came with time. If it rained, you better have had umbrella stands!
