Cities XXL reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Journalist: "Many critical Readers complain to us that Your new Game, Cities XXL, is, in a sense, identical to its Predecessor." Boss: "Who claims that?" Journalist: "The Players. At Least the vast Majority. " Chef: "No, Nonsense. It's a completely new Game! ' Journalist: "Achso? But Players rightly notice that in addition to the identical Game principle, completely identical Assets and Cards are Also used. Even the Tutorial, which openly wanted to be compulsively funny even with its Predecessor, evokes a déjà vu that ' Every Day greets the Marmot ' would not have got any better! " Chef: "Ah, great Movie, right? But to the Point-what's the point of that now? If You buy a new Pack of Toast Bread tomorrow-then what do You expect? That the new Toast Bread talks to You at once, makes the Apartment clean and spends a hot Night with You? " Journalist: "Pardon, but this is a completely stupid Comparison. A Toast Bread is a Consumer Item. Do You now seriously convince me that the Bits and Bytes of the Predecessor had consumed? " Boss: "Why not? Did You still Feel like playing the old Game? no! So In a way, it's quite consumed and You wanted a new Game! ' Journalist: "Yeah, yes. But nothing is new about the new Game! " Chef: "Quite the Opposite! They are completely fresh Bits and Bytes to stay in Your Language. We spared no effort, flipped every Bit and every Byte over, washed through, ironed and freshly put together on a crisp! Smell it. Smells all Fresh! " Journalist: "Huuuh? I don't smell anything there. " Chef: "Well, that's because of Winter. In Spring, when the Nose is free again, You will already notice it! " Journalist: "But I don't buy a Game because of its Smell, but because of its Entertainment Value!" Chef: "You can handle That as You like. I sell a Game anyway because of its Monetary value. " Journalist: "But that's the Point! What is the value of the Players who have now spent at least EUR 20 again compared to their Predecessor? " Chef: "Well, for Example, it smells good!" Journalist: "Orrr ... But now it's enough! A Game isn't about the Smell, it's about the Game idea, the Game Mechanics and why do I even have to explain that? ' Chef: "Game Mechanics .. Gameplay.. We had written something down on that. Moment.. I'm looking for the Note straight .. He was here ... No, ah here ... " Journalist: "And?" Chef: "Here's it .. Moment, I can read this hard ... Find the Difference! " Journalist: "Please?" Boss: "Yes." Journalist: "Find the Difference?" Boss: "Exactly. Look, that was a pretty revolutionary Idea from the lead designer back then. Behind this, in a way, is the Philosophy of Meta-gaming. Already heard of it? No? No wonder! Pretty revolutionary and new, this Concept. The Idea is to gradually roll out a parent Game idea across multiple Products. " Journalist: "Moment, You want to say .." Chef: "Exactly, exactly, exactly! Awesome, right? I didn't really want to give that away so quickly, but let the Players discover it myself, but I'm afraid: If You don't get that as a Man from the Subject, then I have to help something! Alsooooo .. Have You noticed anything that is different from your Predecessor. Come on.. Think! ' Journalist: "There's an X in the Name anymore?" Boss: "Very good! One Point .. You already have ONE Point! And.. Something else ... I'll give You a Tip: Color! " Journalist: "Im ... Interface... This one .. " Chef: "Yeah, good, good, good, good, good ... They're doing this great! Bcccccccchhhhhheeeeuuuuuuuuuuuuuusssscccchhh thing! " Journalist: "What .. Was.. Who? " Chef: "Your first Achievement! There are 20 of them! But of course the following will be more difficult! " Journalist: "No." Boss "No?" Journalist: "No, I don't sound that anymore! Either You're completely ruthless or completely crazy. Surely you do not want to explain to me that players should invest EUR 20 to playfully seek out de-irrelevant Differences between this Product and its Predecessor? " Chef: "This is just the Beginning!" Journalist: "Of what? This Meta-Gaming? Tomorrow you release Cities XXXL, which only shows a black Screen, because the Meta-Game is now supposed to be ' Blind Cow '? " Chef: "Hmmm .. had I already told You that our lead designer passed away at that time?" Journalist: "No, but what does this have to do with the Game now?" Boss: "Do You Want the Job?"
