in simcity id make a rural area and slowly grow it into a city
Pretty much this, telling a story. Mac has a lot of weird questions like this about games considering he's a 4x enjoyer.

either way not into cities skylines
Tons of rural builds out there, or builds with rural elements. It just operates differently than Sim City I guess. Like I said, a free weekend isn't a whole lot of time to do much more than learn.

The game is admittedly quite car-centric. You start off with a highway connection on your blank map. But car-free (or largely car-free) cities have a niche in this game's playthroughs. Helped along of course by mods and all-important DLC. The base game is probably the wrong thing to be playing if you want to do this.

Nothing against mods but I'd like to enjoy the base game before getting mods or dlc..

It's a good criticism of games like this, Sims, or even mac's Hearts of Iron where so many mechanics are locked behind DLC walls, and even certain mods require some DLCs to function properly.

CS is really one of those dollar-sink hobby games where you have to put in more than the $8 sale price for the base game if you want to maximise your experience with it. Look at all this DLC: https://store.steampowered.com/dlc/2557 … _Skylines/ (incidentally on sale)

Pretty sure you're going to need a handful if you want to optimize biking, walkability, and mass transit. Can always take a look at the dev's previous (?) Cities in Motion, but I'm not too familiar with it and can't say if it's better or worse.

Until someone comes up with a city planner to dethrone this, I guess it's kind of the option right now. I picked a huge chunk of these on some ultra-cheap bundle sale at one point with the intention of spending a few weekends burning time with it.

Risk of rain has been bought by gearbox.

Hope they don't ruin one of my favorite games

Well it's not as if Hopoo are making any more of it, but by being "Good Stewards" hopefully Gearbox doesn't mean they'll monetize it to oblivion. Ominous!

I don't know if I agree with gaming articles' sentiment that it's (among) the best coop games. Multiplayer games are made or broken by their communities, and ROR2 is plagued by quitters and non- team players. Does it have even the most basic anti-cheat protections?

My friends like opening it to pubs, which usually turns out to be a waste of time for some of the above reasons.

I don't know when or why Hopoo decided to stop, I hadn't been tracking their news page.

A game that impresses me with updates is Terraria. I thought they were done with it years ago but I guess they aren't? What's going on with that? I miss some of the old timey glitches and trolls. Flood the world by exploiting fluid physics in a <20x20 box.
