    All the Rollercoaster Tycoons are on-sale at GoG atm

    I've never played one (I briefly played Theme Park once - didn't really like it) - should I?

    3 is probably the best, because it allows you to sit on your rides in 3D and watch ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...wR66iCUE#t=174 that link jumps you to the good bit)

    If you are on a average laptop I struggle to find much between 1 and 2, 2 is probably a bit prettier but both are fine.

    I think most people consider 2 the one to play. If you have no desire to play the first, just go for 2, it's basically 1 with more stuff.

    For more info, clicky.

    I prefer the maps in RCT1, but that's probably nostalgia. RCT2 should be the go-to choice for people new to the series. RCT3 is fine for what it is, though, but it was quite different from the earlier two games and disenfranchised quite a sizeable portion of the original playerbase.

    I prefer RCT1, there's more maps to unlock and the game is almost the same. By the way, the game is completely different from theme park. You can make your own roller coaster and design them from scratch. It's a little bit complicated at first because there's no complete tutorial showing you how to do it. For example, there is height measures on each piece of your roller coaster. Let's say you've got a piece a 6ft, if you want to put another one above that piece, it will need to be 8ft or higher. If you want to put it under, it will need to be 4ft or lower.

    So yea, basically this ''rule'' applies to everything, from paths you set above your rides to the tunnels you can make. It really is a great game because you have to make the most out of the space you got, especially in the harder scenarios.

    I always preferred 3 - i guess this is because it was the first one i played (after theme park), so I'm probably like a star wars prequel apologist in this respect, but the ui and controls were easier for me to get the hang of, you can 'autocomplete' your designs for that last little bit to join heights up and, of course, ride it in 3d :-). The earlier ones are probably better economics games, but i had more 'fun' in RCT3.

    I played #1 endlessly after I reviewed it. Thus that is still my favorite.

    #2 is probably the best in the series as a complete game given the refinements from #1 and the massive number of additional theming and ride options. It has the best economic model and offers up a decent challenge to the player while offering the most variety.

    #3 is probably the best one from a modern convention standpoint - the graphics, interface and streamlined game play is probably easiest to jump into for a newer player. I never cared much about the 3D rides, but this is the only one that offers the option to virtually ride the coasters you build.

    There's a bit of an Arcen bonanza at dailyroyale: the Tidalis sale is done, but currently there's Shattered Haven for 1.99 euro and Skyward Collapse for 0.99 euro.


    Also, Influx and Shiden, but those do not fit the theme, and the discount is lower :/

    "Free" is a loaded term - "Free" as long as you keep the Amazon AppStore installed and everything that entails ;0

    It might be worth trying? I bought Puzzle Quest 2 from the Kindle app store. It gave a similar warning but I installed it and was able to play just fine on my Sammy. That was actually a great move, since the Kindle version was a single price but the version on the Google Play store was "free to play with microtransactions."

    You just need the App - Amazon Appstore I think, will try now.

    Edit - Damn yea only Kindle I think..

    I did get Sonic CD for free off their Amazon App store though, so not all bad :)

    I have hundred of Amazon Appstore freebies, discovered some real gems too. SwiftKey for example.
    Kindle only apps is a thing? God that's shifty.

    I seem to remember someone getting super excited that Titanfall was under £30 on a dodgy keys site

    http://www.simplycdkeys.com/origin/titanfall

    That's a SLIGHTLY less dodgy keys site (tho they're not an authorised reseller I suspect) - £28 is less than £30 tho yeah?

    Any idea what type of key they provide? Will it work for a US Origin account? I don't see any notes re. this in the product listing.

    I have pre ordered DS2 from them a few days ago. Haven't used them before but from what I read and what people said in here, they are ok. I hope I'm not proven wrong.
