    You have base 'simoleons' (money). You use that to build a road connecting a highway to your new untouched area. You start off building some streets and putting down 'zones' where people can build. You can choose to zone for Residential, etc. Essentially you start off with people building shacks and working bad jobs. As the city progresses, value (or density) goes up and people start making more money. Houses start becoming larger houses, industry starts booming and more people start moving in.

    You do have to deal with fires, criminals, sick people, random events that destroy portions of your city, and various other complaints people may have. Its fun to pass the time but I don't think it really has much longevity to it.
    Is SimCity 4 the one that you don't really care much for? 4 looks to be the only one of the series that is actually on Steam (which I will most likely buy from). Knowing that the game actually appears to be pretty close to what I'm looking for I am really interested in it now

    Entire assassins creed series
    entire fable series (other than the journey, fuck the kinect)
    gta 4
    L.A Norie
    Skyrim
    soul calibur V
    both transformers games, fall and war for cybertron


    Games I already plan to buy (not just for xbox)
    Mass effect 3 (unsure if i need to play the first 3 to get it)
    dishonored
    sim city 5


    I just want a few recommendations. I have about an hour or 2 a day to play.
    You could try The elder scrolls IV: Oblivion. It's like Skyrim only 10 times better.

    There is also the soul series which I will always recomend because it's the best rpgs ever made in my opinion. Demon souls is only for the ps3 but you should try out darksouls. The 2 games have nothing to do with eachother when it comes to the lore.

    I would also recomend dragons dogma. It's also an action rpg much like the souls games. However dragons dogma features party gameplay. You can have AI companions or play co-op with friends. Theres ALOT of customization in dragons dogma in terms of armor and apperance etc...

    About mass effect I would STRONGLY suggest you play the first 2 ones before playing the third. You could grab mass effect 2 and grab the Genesis dlc. That way you can make the important choices that you could make in the first game and learn abit about the story. I wouldn't suggest starting out with the third one because the 3 games are strongly connected in lore, so you probably won't enjoy it as much as you would if you played the earlier ones first.

    If you have a gaming mouse, or a mouse with at least 6-7 buttons then any MOBA or ARPG will work just fine with a mouse only as it's point to click movement.

    League of Legends is free, but Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 also have the same ease of control for a cost.

    I just assumed you couldn't use one hand at all, didn't know you'd have keyboard access. I still give the same recommendations then. Mobas and Arpgs only require you to use the number keys otherwise all movement and aiming is done with the mouse.

    Hello fellow MMO-Champion browsers, I need a game that will hold me over until Wildstar comes out.
    I would prefer a MMORPG that isn't WoW. Or anything really, something that involves you playing with other people. Anyone have any suggestions on some good MMOs that could tie me over until Wildstar comes out.

    Hi,

    I just recently bought a Nintendo 3dsxl and i never owned a "normal" ds.

    What DS (and 3ds) games do you think are absolute must-haves.

    So far i played mario 3d land and heroes of ruin for 3ds, Castlevania: dawn of sorrow and zelda; Spirit Tracks for ds.

    I also heard good things about the Ace Atourney games. Which one would be the best to start with?

    A lot of the "good" RPGs are on older consoles; is PS2 or GBA an option?

    Going off topic . I just picked up Simcity 4 Delux Edition on Amazon for 4.99. It's normally 15 I think and it should be on sale until the end of May. Here is the link ,if you are interested. You also download it straight from Amazon.

    Looking for a new game to get sucked into, preferably an action RPG. I think what I'm wanting is Diablo 3, but without the suck.

    Divine Divinity/Beyond Divinity (near as I can tell, it's the same game but Beyond Divinity is "remastered" so it's more compatible with Win7/higher resolutions) looks pretty attractive at the $5.99 pricetag. I don't think I ever got a chance to really play it much - my computer back in 2002 could barely handle Diablo II, so I never got a chance to try DD.

    Anyone remember anything about it, good or bad? I had Titan Quest from an old Humble Bundle deal and it didn't quite get me going, though I might try it again sometime.

    Yes those are options as well. And to an above poster, I couldn't get in to ni no kuni, something just rubbed me the wrong way

    Pretty good price for those games. They are decent games that are worth a play through in my opinion.

    Titan Quest is my favorite Action RPG of all time. Only thing missing from it in my opinion is that the maps aren't randomized.
