Atari, the publisher of the forthcoming RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, today launched a new Web site for the game that features screenshots and video, revealing a number of new rides. New video clips show complete point-of-view video of several coaster varieties. They also announced the addition of a fireworks editor, where players will be able to design their own fireworks shows and set them to music.
*Ugh* Cheap knockoff of Republica's "Ready To Go" yet again. Change every 4th note a bit and get out of paying royalties.
The double ferris wheel is looking pretty sweet. I used to love those as a kid. Especially that moment when you're on the top of the wheel and the whole thing is spinning you over the top... great airtime for a wheel!
The stunt show looked cool, too with the explosions and stuff.
I'm not real worried about the lack of themes. The first one only had a few, and there was plenty you could do with that. The latest ones were lame, anyhow. I'm looking forward to riding in my own park more than making it look like Dino-sour land.
Man, now I really got to get a job, so many good things coming out starting early November. (Now I'm up to an XBox, Halo2, Need for Speed Underground 2, The Matrix Online, Destroy All Humans, etc,etc.)
Yeah I hope that isn't the final sound. I mean all they have to do for the beemers is use the same sound as before with the realistic sounding lift hill and track, same with the wooden coasters. What does need to change is the sound of the steel looping coasters, from RCT2, make it a little more of a roar.
dlillib, I completely agree, its not the same without them ducks! I want to see what the crashes are like when a coaster crashes and all. Oh, and the drowning, can guests yell help i'm drowning? lol....not that thats humane but it can sometimes be entertaining when you get bored...he he he
This game looks great! I would say not to put the game down or be unhappy with anything until you actually play it. ;) I can't wait to see people re-create real parks like Cedar Point...it's going to be a whole new generation of RCT and I can't wait!
