Planet Coaster - Console




I have always been a sucker for roller coasters since I was tall enough to ride them. I've driven all of the eastern United States to ride real coasters and even made Six Flags Over Texas an essential part of the 2008 Dallas GA get together. From a gaming perspective, I've owned all the Roller Coaster Tycoons and a few of them more than once.

So that brings us around to Planet Coaster Console edition, which is a Launch Title on Xbox Series X and being part of Xbox Game Pass (i.e., you can play it free if you have Game Pass). So, of course, I loaded it up on the new system. The gamepad control of what is considered a PC game took some getting used to. However, outside of some quirkiness in Roller Coaster design mode, it works really, really well. On the Series X (and presumably Xbox One), you can also plug in a keyboard and mouse and play that way as well.

I've been playing the game to relax from all the stuff going on and avoid the stress of work. It's fun. The game looks great, and it sounds great too. I will say there are a few weird freeze bugs that I hope they correct soon. However, it could always be related to being in Alpha Pre-Flight (buggiest software) for the console with bugs. Which is to say, I see more bugs than most console people see since my Xbox is running experimental operating system software.

Has anyone else played yet (on Xbox, PC, etc.)?  What do you think?

      I have just started my own personal blog that will focus on my adventures in being a casual hardcore gamer.  I'm simply doing too many things to dedicate time to gaming, but gaming is something I'm passionate about.  So I've decided to start blogging about various game related things. Hardware, new games, etc. 
      I am primarily an Xbox gamer, though I dabble in PS4, Switch, and PC.  If you are interested in gaming and related topics, pop over to my new blog and give me a follow:
      I'll end up posting more if there people end up showing interest.  My new Xbox Series X arrives tomorrow.  It feels like the only positive in 2020's goat rodeo.  (There I used the Word of the Day again!)
