Cities Skylines 2 anybody?
I've sunk over 1660 hours into the original game, so i'll certainly be picking this up, and I also suspect i'll be upgrading my rig too.
So what do you do?
It's a prettier SimCity on steroids.
I wonder if they'll put some features/version of the TME mod in there. It completely changed the game for me.
its the game the new Sim City SHOULD of been, made by several of the original Sim City Dev's after they suffered a 'difference of opinion' after EA took over Maxis
So is it a god complex world creator type game?
yeah, you start out with money, build a city till it either is profitable enough to look after itself, or you get bored and decide the filthy crime ridden hellhole you made would be improved with the addition of several asteroids, floods, Tornados and Earthquakes
Disappointed to just discover this won't be releasing on Mac. I thought it may be since the last one was, but suppose the architecture change since then makes in understandable :/
It will be releasing on PS5 though... did anyone play the first one on PS4 and have comments on the UI and controls? Seems like it would be awkward with a controller.
Only played the first one on PC but I imagine the detailed road layout options would be a pain with a controller - best check some reviews or forums to be sure.
wasn't expecting Milton Keynes to be brought up in this thread.
Can't you plug a USB wireless mouse/keyboard into these new consoles?
It's a good question, and one I never really considered.
But yes, turns out PS5 has native keyboard and mouse support.
However, this is at the console level - its up to games whether they are able to use them sensibly or not, as its not mandatory. So I guess its a wait and see.
A keyboard/mouse might be awkward sitting on a sofa, but nothing a lap desk or some such wouldn't address.
And there's nowt to stop you buying a console and connecting it to your PC's monitor for when you want to game. Add a USB KVM and you're sorted.
My monitors 5120x2160 native res may have something to say about that. Not sure if I can opt for black bars though as I've never tried vanilla 4K on it.
But also something I had considered after posting. My desktop mouse/keyboard store 3 bluetooth pairings and I have a spare HDMI output on my AV processor, and a cable run already established between that and my office. So all it would need is a ~20m ish HDMI cable.
Or even one of these trackpad efforts to remove the need for a mouse and surface if playing in the lounge.
Pre-order on Steam available now, Standard edition is £41.99 and the Ultimate Edition is £74.99.
Doesn't look so bad when you consider, that this years ESO chapter costs £34 to £68 depending on version, For just one effing zone, tiny compared to a WoW expansion...
I won't buy until November, when it is likely to be 60 to 70% cheaper.
