Cities Skylines: did anyone get it?


#1

So I picked up Cities Skylines last night. Has anyone else got this? I’ve only played for a few hours so I’ve only just scratched the surface of its capabilities, but so far I’m loving it!

Paradox Interactive really hit the nail on the head with this one. I haven’t played a City Sim in many years, but I had to pick this one up when I saw it.


#2

I watched a little bit of a stream on this, very complex. Looks like it will blow SimCity out of the water!


#3

@PreshusKitty is considering it, she’s big into Sim games. I used to play a lot of Sim City, but I just don’t have the time to sink into a game like that, unfortunately. I might grab it over the summer sale since I’m not taking classes this summer :wink:


#4

Yeah it’s definitely addicting. But I love it. I’ve put over 100 hours into H1Z1 so I figured it would be nice to take a little break and do something different for a bit.

@Nubhugs Yeah I think it definitely blows Sim City out of the water!


#5

Can I expect Mayor @invaderdoom to run his city into the ground? Creating a new third world that sets the bar for the phrase “the struggle is real”?


#6

I’ve been thinking about grabbing this for my girlfriend and I to play on our Saturday couple streams. It seemed really intriguing to me, and I haven’t played a city simulator game in quite a while. She’s an engineer, and I’m a gamer with a creative mind, so I’m thinking it could be a really fun stream.


#7

I think @Vocino was looking for a good city builder a few months ago if i remember right.


#8

Yup, always wished I had a really good city builder to rival Sim City 4. I tried the Cities franchise a couple times but didn’t really like the style. I’m not sure this one is much different.


#9

Not the same franchise as Cities despite the deceiving name; this is the Cities in Motion dev team :wink:


#10

Oh really? I was thinking it was Cities XL people. I’ve never playing the in Motion game but it has decent reviews.


#11

Yeah, this was my first thought as well; only after doing a bit of digging did I find this out :wink:


#12

You’re doin the lord’s work


#13

Yeah Colossal Order is who Developed Skylines. Although looking at the In Motion series, I’m really interested to check those out now. They look pretty fun.


#14

Looks interesting, I may have to pick it up at some point.


#15

That ice cube factory catching on fire though @ThatDoomThough. :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

Omg @aikiller, too good. That seems to be the one building that always catches on fire :stuck_out_tongue:

And I love that I can name buildings. Makes for a fun time in stream!


#17

I picked this up…looks interesting enough and i like building cities and then starving them of electricity and water…lol. j/k i wish this was multiplayer though…that would be sweet.


#18

Yeah it’s definitely pretty awesome. I think I’m gonna play with the mods tonight. Apparently there’s a mod that you can walk around your city in first person so I HAVE to get that mod


#19

So this game is sounding pretty interesting. I may have to go pick it up. Been missing a good sim city type game for a while.


#20

OK this game is down right addicting…i got on earlier to check email and such…wound up playing for over 3 hours. Its basic enough for beginners and old timers as well…yet you can choose to make it harder if you wish. I found it hard to keep my budget with its head above water and sustain a reliable source of money. If you are on the fence about this game i would say go for it …cant beat the fun factor for 25 bux :slight_smile:
