They look better than I expected.
If you will give them the animations like the concurrent has I think I can safely say Rollercoaster Tycoon World is worth its title.

These announcements feel emptier and emptier the more MattLab makes. I don't even think this is even can be considered an announcement considering that every other website I go to says the same exact same thing. I appreciate Christmas as much as the next guy but why couldn't Mattlab just have used this opportunity to answer all of the questions found in pretty much every thread out there?

WHEN IS THE NEXT BETA?
WHEN WILL WE BE SHOWN THE NEW FEATURES YOU'VE SPENT ALL THIS TIME WORKING ON?
WHY ARE YOU SO RESTRICTIVE ON BETA TIME?
WHY ARE YOU BEING SO SILENT?


Seriously this is getting so annoying, it is such a shame that I used to look up to Atari and now I'm being given a reason to look other places.

This isn't a devblog. It's a friendly greeting of well wishes to our RCT fandom from Atari and Nvizzio Co. They'll be more developer blogs and content reveals soon. Why not take a break and enjoy the holidays. It's time for family togetherness, stuffing our faces with food and sharing gifts and joy to others.

Atari's little greeting revealed plenty. Their gift to us - a Peep teaser. They'll be more to come.

Have a Happy Holidays!

Planet coaster revealed their peeps on day 1 yet we had to wait till days after the INTENDED RELEASE of RCTW just to see them. That's only more reason to frown upon this. When I buy a carton of eggs, I don't just grab them, pay the cashier, and take them home. I look inside the box and see if any are broken. This game is like having security guards around the super market to make sure you don't take a peek to see if the eggs are broken or not.

Having a rant about being given a Christmas card?

I too find the peep Christmas card a nice gift. Thank you Mattlab!

I know it can be difficult, and there seems to be not so much appreciation at the moment, and a lot of negativity (I know why and I concur), and you may not be allowed by Atari to communicate with us how we would like it to see, but I would like to make it clear once again that I do wish you the very best.

You deserve some appreciation! Thank you again Mattlab!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you! :D

I would like to say Happy Christmas to everyone. As a Brit, I wanna make it clear that I'm not wishing anyone the vile, empty greeting of Happy Holidays, (trying not to be sick in my mouth) but absolutely saying Happy Christmas, what with it being Christmas and all that.
On this vein, in the summer, should I say, Happy Holidays or Happy 4th of July?
Sorry for the rant but as someone who likes to say it how it is and doesn't like bulls##t, I find this and the Coke ad really offensive.
As a disclaimer, I've Just got back from the pub on Christmas Eve after a few beers with my amazing friends who really bring home what It really means. It's Christmas. Let's just call apples apples and oranges oranges guys. Bet you all think I'm an awful human being lol.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS! xxxxx

I celebrate Christmas like everyone else. Even though I'm not really the most religious person, I gave away about $200-300 worth of gifts this Christmas to my inner family. For someone who works minimum wage, that's incredible. Christmas spirit set aside, I am sure everyone else here agrees with me when I say MattLab is being as silent as possible and did not take this perfect opportunity to make a decent announcement to give us the important information we've been waiting for. Also, Christmas is mutually exclusive to my point, it has literally nothing to do with my rant.

I am not hating on Christmas, I am upset by how poorly Atari is handling this game and how empty these announcements are. Everyone deserves the right to say their own opinion and express how they feel upon it.

yea you can have an opinion but your opinion is that a simple Christmas greeting to everyone should have contained game information and that seems very critical and somewhat unfair.
I too want to know more but this was never a dev blog it was just a greeting card and should be treated as one.
Everyone deserves a few days away from work at this time of year, lets allow Mattlab and all involved in RCTW a chance to just announce their Christmas wishes to us all without dragging the games content into the subject.

Time to get drunk and fat:o
Merry Christmas everybody :D

Ps. nemmie I'm also a Brit and I fully agree with you

Most people are upset by Atari's ways of communicating, and I agree. Posting about it on this thread is just a bit salty, imo - there are better places to do so.

Oh, and by the way, Merry Christmas everyone!

Keep in mind, this WAS posted in "ANNOUNCEMENTS". A greeting card would be more suitable in something like general discussions where it doesn't make people upset when they see in their subscription box that an update of information they've been waiting for so long was a Christmas gram.

Honestly Atari, I think I'm done with this nonsense and I'm just going to get my refund. I've been so patient with you. You've been so silent and have given no information about the dev process or what's been done to improve the game from the many problems with it. To those who think it's disrespectful for me to say this on a Christmas blog, you need a rain check. We're on a video game forum talking about a video game, remember?

shirty
12-25-2015, 11:43 AM
General discussions is for discussions actually about RCTW so by your own reckoning this would not be any more suited there, it would technically be more suited to community chat but then would it get as noticed? But why can't Atari "announce" on their own forums that they wish you and everyone else all the best?
With near 1200 views you are the only one upset... bah humbug!

What does any of that have to do with the main point i'm establishing here? Apparently all the people who agree with me already got there refunds and left, well I'm soon to join them. I find it odd how everyone is really too blind to see the inevitable chaos that will ensue upon the release date. Word of advice to you all, this HAS happened before with big video game companies and can happen again, remember "Duke Nukem: Forever"?

Getting a a refund may help you solve all of those problems:
*Money for food
*Money for eye mask to help sleep at night
*No longer need to lurk on RCTW forums just for a game that shows no potential as of yet.

It's a win-win.

Even I don't know where, but I'm sure it's super awesome and when you find it, you'll not be able to function as a human being and even ask any questions as you'll be so in awe. All I know is that the website selling these unicorns will let you pre-order one but won't tell you what features these unicorns have at this time but are super excited to tell you at a later date.
