The village of thrills 18 Mar, 2007, 03:00 / 12 comments

Guess what, gang! We have a new hosted site ? all about Thrillville!

Except not really, since it?s actually a rant about how LucasArts used to be really good. But it?s still thrilling.

Seriously, has anyone actually played Thrillville? It's probably a really good game. Probably.

Oh, and it?s not even properly hosted by us, because I honestly can?t work out how the hosting system works on Mojo. Sorry about that.

Anyway, enjoy!

    Completely unrelated, but Gametap now has a trailer up for Episode 5... And it looks... Wow.

    Is it just me, or is the site mostly just cuts and pastes from other sites?

    It also seems... very self-absorbed for some reason.

    Oh wait, I just worked out why.

    Is it just me, or I read this before?

    (Sam sits back and ponders as the clouds of past surround him...)

    I find it to be a really self absorbed website. I hope never to go there."

    Oh wait, I just worked out why.

    I like Gabez's quote on the site :P

    Despite the dozens of spelling mistakes, I 100% agree with everything you said.

    Anyway, the intention of the site is not actually to pick on the game. But rather see it as a tiny so thin and so so tiny beam of hope.
    And to show younger generations, that were looking around the web stuff on Thrillville, games that perhaps they never heard of. And despite here we all know them very (very) much, there is quite a large number of youngsters that don't.
    And that's the reason of the site basically, to do good in the world while pulling Jim Ward's leg.

    I have it for the ps2. Its good console version of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 with some minigames. If you aren't really into themeparks and the tycoon genre, it isn't going to be for you. My sons, ages 7 and 6, enjoyed it alot. Of all the other of left field crappy games Lucasarts has pushed out, I find it strange that Thrillville gets most of the flack. Why not pick on a more deserving title such as RTX Red Rock?

    Thrillville gets its Mojo flack mostly for lack of originality. LucasArts Jim Ward touting original IP so much, and when they release non Star Wars titles they tend to be remakes of other games . genres.

    RTX is old, old news now.

    And that there are so many amusement park games out there

    Yeah, exactly. The one non-licensed game LucasArts have released since Mercenaries and it's a badly made rip-off.

    Heh.
