So, what PC-based coaster games and builders are out there besides RCT, UltraCoaster, SimCoaster, and the new Disney one?

Just Roller Coaster Factory & 3D Roller Coaster Designer right now. Coaster Works is supposed to be getting ported to the PC soon too though. RCF is the prequel to 3D RCD, but 3D RCD is essentially identical to RCF, only with a new coaster type and LOTS of new features added. Personally, I LOVE both of these games, especially 3D RCD, but they are WAY underrated! Most people say they SUCK, but I assure you, they most certainly DO NOT suck! These two sims were the absolute BEST coaster sims available, IMO, until Ultimate Ride came to town, so I would pick them up, if I were you, if only for the novelty of owning these significant little slices of coaster sim history before they're all gone forever! RCF is only $10, and 3D RCD is only $20, so you could pick both of them up for the price of what Coaster Works will cost you when it's released on the PC.

I have a word of advice. If you are going to buy a game like CW, don't. Ports do suck. If you own the console for it, get it for the console, but do not get the port. Ports just don't work. PC games are not supposed to be on console, they are not designed streamlined enough, and console games should not be ported to PC, they are too streamlined, simple, and just plain outdated in terms of graphics (unless the console is only 1 month old, but after that, PC already caught up and passed it.)
In a couple months No Limits will be done. The website (www.nolimitscoaster.de) says it will be ready in October, but I'd give it a bit more time, like November or December.
Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?
