New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

October 13, 2008 -

GP is an admitted sucker for simulation games, so it's no surprise that World of Subway caught our eye.

German developer TML Studios launched their first foray into subway sims in 2005 by adding the Berlin underground to Microsoft Train Simulator, a game which enjoys a following among hardcore rail enthusiasts. Top News has a report:

The game allows players to manoeuvre between New York City and New Jersey, picking up passengers along the way. Publisher Aerosoft says the program will win people over with its realism: slow motion is used to convey the sensation of movement. The three-dimensional cockpit starts vibrating at high speeds.

The program's creators do not intend stopping at New York. A series is planned focusing on the world's most interesting subway stretches.

GP: Here's hoping that the London Tube is TML's next sim project. Mind the gap, and all that...

I'm just glad there's no in-game advertising in GTA IV - imagine if they were tricked into advertising a subway game in Liberty City...

When Games Suck - taking the niggling, irritating game design flaws that waste your time and piss you off - and rubbing them in the designers' faces.

Any game with NYC i find myself playing, phones full of games and apps for New York and even the new york seo we do is enjoyable.

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Experience all the action and thrills of a real trip on the NYC city subway! Get felt up by a creepy guy! Stand right next to someone with BO! Switch from rail to rail in a hackneyed attempt to get to the exact spot you're looking for! Discover too late you're going in the wrong direction! All these experiences can be yours!

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Hmmm.. Is Railfan available? Will it run on my North American PS3?

 

 

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Reminds me of that Simpsons episode where Bart refuses to do yard work, but jumps at the chance of playing a new yard work sim game.  Sorry, but 'subway train conductor' is not one of the jobs that I've ever dreamed of having...

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Interesting, PS3's Railfan has a simulator of the Chicago train route I take to work. Although to be completely accurate, the train should slow down to 5mph in the middle third of the route. Damn year-round construction...

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Sorry to disappoint you GP, but their next release on this will be Berlin's U7 line. But London Tube might be next as the Berlin one is currently due for release in December 08 (at least according to the current release list of TML's German publisher Aerosoft) ;)

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Someone please remind me why I can't take photos in the subway again?

I don't know how accurate exactly this game is, but the screenshots look pretty damn accurate to me (I live in New York).

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Japan's had a game like this for years. Bullet train sims, but pretty much the same thing. Interesting to see an American developer jumping on the public transportation sim bandwagon.

Mind the yawning chasm.... ;)

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

They are making a tube version, but unfortunately, it's been delayed.

RedMageAs someone who writes extensively himself, I can see when writing has been influenced by boiling anger from a mile away.07/31/2015 - 7:12pm
RedMageI also didn't see Leigh Alexander's original article as an attack on gamers; it was just poorly written. She'd likely had a terrible day and was projecting the activities of gaming's vicious fringe onto "gamers" collectively, however you describe that.07/31/2015 - 7:11pm
Andrew EisenI searched for the RPS article but the best I can find is a weekend wrapup article that links to Alexander and Golding's articles. That can't be it.07/31/2015 - 7:11pm
MattsworknameAlso, side note: Windows 10 upgrade appears to be a MUCH better platform then windows 8, testing on 3 seperate units, and it works great07/31/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenPolygon's "An awful week to care about video games" did not (unless you're referring to a different article) and I've never seen a RPS story on the Gamers Are Dead list.07/31/2015 - 7:06pm
MattsworknameSeveal directly linked to it, including polygon and rock paper shotgun07/31/2015 - 7:02pm
Andrew EisenHuh? Did any of the Gamers Are Dead articles other than Golding's even mention Shaw's study?07/31/2015 - 6:52pm
Mattsworknameso basicly, sargon showed that the whole spat of "Gamers are dead" article were based on lies and misinformation07/31/2015 - 6:39pm
Mattsworknamehow the articles themselves were not truly academic based, but agenda driven, as it they exsisted for idealogical purposes not backed up by the research they claimed supported them.07/31/2015 - 6:37pm
Mattsworknamegeneral, have no need or want of "Diveristy" according to shaws own research. He then went into the articles that cited it, including the origional, and showed that they argued things taht the actual research tthey quoted did NOT support, he lastly showed07/31/2015 - 6:36pm
MattsworknameAndrew: Sorry im so late in responding to your earlier question abonut sargons video, but basicly, he went through 3 phases. He first looked at the cited reasearch the articles used, by somone named shaw, and proved that the research shows that gamers, in07/31/2015 - 6:35pm

Andrew EisenI told Sega if it releases Yakuza 1&2 HD and Yakuza 5 in North America, I'll buy them. So far, they don't seem to be swayed.07/31/2015 - 5:11pm
Craig R.Too many gamers were harassing and abusing long before Baldwin decided to 'legitimize' the lunatic fringe, but that term certainly made the lunatics easier to pick out of the crowd07/31/2015 - 4:58pm
Craig R.Which is why the entire GG crowd looks like a giant bad egg07/31/2015 - 4:55pm
Craig R.Irony: the people who are feeling hostility toward their 'gamer' identity are often those who are most hostile to everybody else07/31/2015 - 4:55pm
Andrew EisenIt's not about gamers at all, it's discussing the harassment and abuse that Sarkeesian and Quinn had suffered. So yeah, not a great title but not an attack on gamers either.07/31/2015 - 4:48pm
Andrew EisenI agree than many of the titles are kinda bunk though. For example, Ars Technia's "The death of the 'gamers' and the women who 'killed' them" doesn't really work for the article.07/31/2015 - 4:47pm
Andrew EisenAnd I still don't see how articles like Polygon's "An awful week to care about video games" can be construed as an attack.07/31/2015 - 4:25pm
