And they said PC gaming was dead...
It wasn't that long ago that I had never even heard of the series and now 4 is coming. I thought 3 was just out?
It looks just like 3. . .
" I haven't had time to play Tropico 3 yet! Slow down, Kalypso. "
ew twitter and facebook in a pc game? this world has gone to shit.
I just bought # 3... :(
I thought I wanted to get Tropico 3, but after reading this, I may just wait until 4 comes out. C:
Just got Absolute Power, the next game coming out in around a year is good timing for me.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed Tropico 3 for the console; hope it's announced for 360.
looks good... hope it's gonna be an XBLA release... 15 bones... yummy :)
Wait, can we use a grapple claw in this?
In the words of Juanito, this is LOO-KING GOOD.
I should play more Tropico 3...
yea i bought tropico 3 of steam cuz i enjoyed the demo then played the game maybe 4 times and got bored
I enjoy Tropico, but the third one only just came out. I have said this a million times on GiantBomb -- STOP TURNING EVERY FRANCHISE INTO A FUCKING ANNUAL-ISH RELEASE.
Tropico 3, now with moar colors!
Seriously though, I'm awful at these games.
I just hope the construction workers actually build shit quicker. I'd have 2 construction buildings filled with workers and could only get 2 construction workers at a time on a building. Quite annoying when you are trying to build a tourist trap area on the other side of an island.
This seems like it could be cool. Having said that I did find the last one to get a little slow at times with nothing happening for stretches. Hopefully they can address that.
May I build statues and ignore the needs and desires of my citizens?
I AM GOOD EL PRESIDENTE.
It feels like it hasn't been that long since Tropico 3. And while it might actually be 2 years between games, for this type of game, that still feels kind of soon. There were 5 years between Warhammer 40k & W40k 2 and Civilization 4 to 5. There is still no new Sins of a Solar Empire or Company of Heroes, and it's been a decade between Total War: Shogun titles. With Tropico 4, I don't know what they're adding to this to make it that much different than T3 that couldn't be added in an expansion pack. I'm not saying it's a "money grab", certainly not with this genre, but it does feel a little over exposed to me.
might have to touch myself in the dark, and scream the alphabet backwards
Sweet. I still haven't got a pc to play my copy of number three on yet, I better get my ass into gear.
I don't know. The third one was fun, but only for a short while. It got repetitive pretty quickly.
" As long as it has more challenges then Tropico 3, i am all cool. Also , please keep the "Assassinate Juanito" edict from the expansion..that thing was a lifesaver. "This.
Sweet, I was hooked on Tropico 3.
I should go play more Tropico 3.
As long as it has more challenges then Tropico 3, i am all cool.
Also , please keep the "Assassinate Juanito" edict from the expansion..that thing was a lifesaver.
I'm not into these sorts of games, but damn that water looks absolutely spectacular.
Good news for me.I love Tropico series,even second part with pirates.
Too soon? Or is it that Tropico 3 was using tech that was too old?
Either way, one of these games does not need to exist at this point.
3 was great fun so I'll be looking forward to this one.
Never played any of the Tropico games, but those graphics look amazing!
Why bother announcing the game if they can't also put out a trailer?
Sounds like more of an expansion of number three, than a new iteration.
the tropico games are have always been in between aa-aaa so i cant fucking wait!!!!!!!!!
that looks beautiful
the graphics remind me of just cause 2
confirmation: El Presidente can ride a hot air balloon
" @Tuffgong said:Alright, that's fair. But it sure as hell ain't soon for a video game.What the hell is everyone talking about too soon?Surprisingly soon for a series like Tropico, anyways. "
Who needs Sim City 5 when we have Tropico? Getting really excited for 4.
Don't see how 18months is too soon, sounds about right to me. I enjoyed Tropico 3 but not as much as I thought I would, hoping Tropico 4 will fix that. Until then, back to Settlers 7.
What the hell is everyone talking about too soon?Surprisingly soon for a series like Tropico, anyways.
What the hell is everyone talking about too soon? It came out in October 2009. The game is slated to come out next year. According to my math that's at least an 18 month cycle which is pretty standard for what seems like an iterative sequel.
This to me seems like the Tropico game to come out in lieu of people caring about strategy games again.
I hope they don't just slap on new scenarios to Tropico 3. Tropico 3 had some great things going for it, but the UI and some gameplay mechanics need some fix'n.
Wow, that was fast. I played the demo for Tropico 3 and while it was fairly decent, it didn't make me want any more Tropico than I got. This seems too soon, and with too little content to really peak my interest.
