tips:
pick a good landform
utilize the bank only when necessary
keep checking voice
build no roads
all zones MUST be adjacent to rails


The citizens always complain about housing prices, even if I build residential plots bordering industrial. I get to about 20k people and then I don't have enough to make stuff that people will come for.

[edit] Ok, I started a new game. 1903 just rolled around, I have $2000 left (with loan, I JUST built a stadium because the residents demanded it). I have 25k people. The guy is telling me I'm doing a good job.

Are there any good games on the Virtual Console? Like the Snes Version of Tales of Phantasia - I would consider playin' that.


Well, that was dumb then. Should have gotten the Opera browser when it was free, because it isn't anymore.

And no, no Tales of Phantasia, and I doubt it would be on there for ages. There are very few RPGs on the virtual console... I'm not sure if there is even one traditional rpg, actually.
THIS IS A SIGNATURE.

There's actually quite a few. All of the Zelda games, for one. Generally referred to as adventure, fine, but they're at least adventure-RPGs.

There's... uhh...

Y'know, now that I think about it there's really not that many.

None of the major old-school RPGs are out except Breath of Fire 2. That means no Super Mario RPG, FF6, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, 7th SAGA, Earthbound, Illusion of Gaia, or any of the other major ones I can't think of right now.

I'm personally hoping for a few more N64 games. I want my Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, damnit.

Being in Australia, this is a major problem, as we tend to get the brown and sticky end of the stick. They also need to get to translating some of the Japan only stuff so the rest of the world can have a go.

You're wrong. :D This was my and almost everyone else's fear too, for a long time, but it's turned out not to be true.

Currently on the EU servers we have Mario's Super Picross (SNES), and SMB: The Lost Levels (NES), neither of which made it out of Japan (Mario All Stars excepted). Next week we're getting Ninja Gaiden (NES) and Ninha JaJaMaru-kun (NES), again never relased in Europe (or outside Japan for the latter, I think); then finally the week after comes Sin and Punishment (N64) and Gradius III (SNES). Lost Levels is available only till the end of September, but the rest are permanent.

Gradius III is the US version the EU never had, if I remember rightly, but Sin & Punishment is the biggie. That's going to be a global release on the VC, but it was never released outside Japan before now. Supposedly one of Treasure's better efforts, which is saying something. I'll know for myself in a couple of weeks!

(For the sake of completeness: there have already been three Turbografx games that weren't released over here before, one of which - Battle Lode Runner - was new to the US too. But now it's happening on Nintendo systems as well, that's the big deal.)

So, things are very definitely looking up. Next on the wishlist: the EU gets Earthbound, and the US gets Terranigma. That'd be a fair trade.

Also, while I'm here I'm going to shamelessly pimp Kirby's Adventure. A superb little title that matches SMB3 as the joint-best platformer on the NES, IMO; and with catchier music. I've not known anyone get it and be disappointed, so if you've some spare points.... (Look for Kirby Super Star/Kirby's Fun Pak when that shows, too.)
