Look, we’re all struggling through a strange holiday season, so why not make it a little bit stranger? This Friday at 7:00PM PST on Twitch.tv/mac_ashton, I will be live streaming a readthrough of my holiday story, Home for the Holidays.
The Walkthrough – A Review in Brief
Overall, I was engaged every minute through Doug’s book and I would highly recommend it to any video game fan. Hell, even the young’uns out there who think strategy has always been found on YouTube might enjoy this piece of what is quickly becoming history.
Update on Upcoming Projects
I've been working on a host of projects that are all coming out soon! I wanted to take this time to provide a brief update on where everything is and how it's coming along.
Coaster Addict – Adventure Boat Ride
Hello Planet Coaster fans! It has been a long time since my last Coaster Addict post, but I've been busy with other projects. Today I wanted to share an early look at two rides I've been working on using the Adventure pack. Originally I started this project with just the mine train coaster, but then … Continue reading Coaster Addict – Adventure Boat Ride
Coaster Addict – Haunted House
Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Coaster Addict, a blog series where I share screenshots of my latest Planet Coaster ride and rant a bit about the story I'm trying to tell.

Diablo 3 – Rise of the Necromancer
I've been playing the Necromancer for about 3ish hours, and I'm already in love. One fo my favorite classes from Diablo 2 has finally made a return, and it's by far the goriest, corpsiest, necromanciest (these are all words) class in the game to date. Aside from my massive, glowing bone shield (pictured above), everything … Continue reading Diablo 3 – Rise of the Necromancer
Coaster Addict – Log Flume
First, before I get into the construction of my park's newest ride, I wanted to provide an update on the ride I constructed for my last blog, The Marine Institute Expedition. I have finished the ride! Below is a screenshot, and the video can be found here. But now, welcome to the Crystal Caverns Expedition! … Continue reading Coaster Addict – Log Flume
Coaster Addict – Creating a Dark Ride
Today I thought I'd show a gallery of my latest dark ride I've been working on in Planet Coaster (one of the best games out there). The concept for this particular dark ride started all the way back in alpha for me, with the idea of a simple volcano coaster (pictured below). Eventually, much like … Continue reading Coaster Addict – Creating a Dark Ride
