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.

Matthew WilsonTrust me i read the same sites.I have a Master's in Applied Politics. I get to see through the spin both Left and Right that tend to be put on news stories.09/30/2014 - 1:02am
WymorenceI also have an extremely hard time in listening to people who froth at the mouth when the POTUS does something almost identical to the previous POTUS, but for some reason is subhuman for it this time around09/30/2014 - 12:43am
WymorenceThe problem is that opposing views are a good thing, but sites like Brietbart and their ilk are the exact opposite. 9/10 times they tweak the news to benefit their own views instead of just giving their own side of it.09/30/2014 - 12:41am
james_fudgeIf I were in a cult I might try and shut myself away from opposing views...09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeoh and Nate Silver and Politico too.09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeI read a lot of sites every day, Drudge, Breitbart, Huffpo, DailKOS, Red State, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and i'm not infected. Time for people to get thicker skins.09/29/2014 - 11:46pm
james_fudgeNeo_DrKefka: you do know you visited "one of those sites" when you posted that article, right?09/29/2014 - 11:44pm

Matthew WilsonI agree. the same for MSNBC as well. both of them can go away, but like it or not its a free market and fox news make allot of money sadly.09/29/2014 - 7:46pm
quiknkoldI'm an independent voter. Vote Blue and Red. so I dont really visit any specific news sites(Though I know FoxNews can take a flying leap off a bridge)09/29/2014 - 7:02pm
quiknkoldFactcheck.org. there you go. neither left or right. straight down the center.09/29/2014 - 7:01pm

Andrew EisenWe used to have a reader who constantly posted DailyKOS articles in the Shout box. I was amazed, not so much by the amazing and horrifically disingenuous spin the site put on these articles, but that our reader would add his own spin on top of it!09/29/2014 - 6:05pm
E. Zachary KnightYou do realize that DailyKOS is the Brietbart of the left wing agenda, right?09/29/2014 - 6:01pm
quiknkoldproblem with Breibart is, despite I totally agreeing with Nero's articles.....its freaking Breibart. Its not the best place int he world when it comes to trust. if DailyKos or think progress reported it....well...things would be better. but here we are.09/29/2014 - 6:00pm
Neo_DrKefkaAt this point I need to stop visiting certain sites. At least now I have a list of people and where they work where I need to avoid http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/09/21/GameJournoPros-we-reveal-every-journalist-on-the-list09/29/2014 - 5:56pm
E. Zachary KnightNeo, Where in any published accounts of the games journo pro mailing list do they call anyone "misogynists, racist, sexist and that we are horrible people"?09/29/2014 - 5:47pm
quiknkoldmy take is, try to write a nice long piece on it, post it somewhere, and then link it. something well written, siting sources.09/29/2014 - 5:42pm
