Rollercoaster Tycoon – Unreal Style

It’s no secret (or it shouldn’t be anyway), that I love Rollercoaster Tycoon.  I spent many hours of my youth building parks.  Sometimes playing the scenarios, oftentimes just screwing around trying to build giant parks.  My favorites were building multiple mile long coasters with dozens of inversions, yet still trying to keep the ratings down … Continued

It’s been Thirty years since Los Angeles joined the ranks of cities whose only qualification was to be a victim of a terrorist act.  Though, were they really terrorists?  Their own ranks called themselves exceptional thieves, and one-time kidnappers, not terrorists.  No Hans Grubber and his pals were opportunists, and only cared about money, $600 … Continued

Did you know that I’ve been to Yosemite National Park?  It’s up there as my top 3 favorites.  Along with Gates of the Arctic, and The Grand Tetons.  There’s something special about Yosemite though.  It’s one of the few parks which I’ve been to more than once.  And I’d love to go back there again … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: State of the Union?

It’s 2018, a year has passed since our reflection on the events of SONY.  With the Mafia taking over Mexico, and the release of the millions of people from NYC, the United States was on wobbly ground in the new years.  Redistricting of the nation, and redistribution of the population caused a major upheaval of … Continued
