Started playing Parkitect. The first scenario should only take like an hour or so to complete and I ended up working on my first park for... 7 hours. It's just as addictive as the old Roller Coaster Tycoon games if not even more-so. Planet Coaster was a really good amusement park builder and I absolutely love the amazing things you can create with it but Parkitect is more what I was looking for from a construction and management sim. It's a great spiritual successor to RCT1 and 2, basically the same game with much improved quality of life features, modern design and new gameplay elements to make the business aspect more realistic (such as needing to pay attention to the immersion of your park goers).

I've finally run out of space in my first park so I guess I'll move on to the next scenario. :lol:

That game looks great Gunstar, I still play RCT classic all the time on my mobile. It always manages to suck me in. What are some notable improvements it makes over the old RCT games?

Coaster building is easier, the camera is a lot better (still locked at an isometric view but you can rotate it much easier though there are steam workshop mods that remove camera limitations I think), customization is way easier so you can build some pretty unique things without much effort, the lighting is also great and you can choose day or night (some lit rides look really cool at night), landscaping is way easier and a lot cheaper so it's actually viable to build giant lakes or mountains (or tear them down) if you want.

My favorite addition is the visualizer so you can troubleshoot your parks problems directly. It puts a filter over the park that can show you where the hungriest guests are, where your crappy scenery is ruining guest immersion, where rain-cover is, and a bunch of other little things. It really helps in planning out your park and figuring out your strategy. It takes out a lot of the guesswork of the older games.

The biggest change gameplay wise is that your stores need to be stocked, but guests don't like seeing people hauling supplies around the park, so you have to figure out ways of keeping your shops supplied without ruining the magic for people.

I've been playing a bunch of the 2016 Hitman lately. It's lots of fun! SO much replayability to these levels between the elusive targets, the escalating missions, and even just the normal missions with their different opportunities to do the assassinations. A fucking excellent stealth game so far. No idea when I'll write a review of it, since it's so nebulous when it's actually "beaten." (just finishing the 6 main assassinations is seeing so little of the proper content it just doesn't feel right to call it beaten there).

I've also been playing a fair bit of Armello, a board game video game I've had on my wishlist I just haven't bought or played for quite some time Xp . I'm having a lot of fun with it! I'm having fun just playing people online, I don't even care if I win. I haven't had this much fun with this stuff since I like first started playing Dota 2 wayyy back when :lol:

Every few days I manage to get in 45 minutes to an hour of Radiant Historia. It is slow going for me.
