Yes. I am insatiably old school when it comes to PC gaming. Always want the physical copy.

I asked for it, one of my professors recommended it highly. I always really liked philosophy, but I've never studied anything outside Existentialism. Kind of branched out from there.

I love the new features so much. The street design and building design are just perfect. There's just so much winning going on in that game.

The small map sizes are a little bit irritating. That's all I can criticize by watching gameplay on YouTube.

I probably won't remember and then I'll get the game and be upset that I can't play it immediately.

Somebody remind me.

I don't remember thinking the map were necessarily small I guess any bigger and things might get a little choppy. They put a lot of detail into it. I still can't get over the roads. And if memory serves everything is color coordinated now? Residential, business, industry, etc?

Yeah, you'd need a beast of a machine to efficiently run the software if the map sizes were any bigger. What do you mean by color coordinated? The zoning?

Yeah. Last I saw there were different colors for zoning. I could be wrong or just thinking of something else. Also, looks very difficult, which I like. Water, power, crime, fire, sewage..lots to handle. I love that.

There's always been different colors for zoning. Yellow for industrial, blue for commercial, and green for residential. What they removed was the ability to zone specific subsets of those three categories. You can't zone for high/medium/low density any longer. That will happen on it's own as you upgrade roads and/or make the area more conducive to growth.

Maybe that's what I'm thinking of. There's a sim game for facebook (i know It's probably lame for most people) But it's actually quite fun haha. Same concept kind of except the building, artifacts, industry, etc all have a specific range where it increases population based on houses built within that range. I thought that was pretty neat. This seems to operate along the same lines but without the restrictions of having only "one city block" of population growth. If that makes any sense.

Ohh no no I have. I had meant something else when I was talking about the color code zoning. I;ve played each of the other SimCities before I'm just not a huge "gamer" I like a very select few games. Any hockey game, Sims, SimCity, and Halo pretty much. Sorry, i put that in my last post and must have deleted it out for some reason. It's late.
