Hello, my name is Seth, and I’m a SimCity addict.  I’ve been clean for 2 years, 7 months, and 14 days.  Ok, that number was just pulled out of my ass, but you get the idea.  I’ve been addicted to SimCity since the very beginning, and I’m talking the SNES version folks.

The new SimCity, either 5 or 2013, comes out on March 5th.  I spent this evening watching some videos of the gameplay, and I’m practically blown away!  It looks pretty damn amazing.  They simplified alot of the stuff from SimCity 4 that got tedious, annoying, and just plain time-consuming. Power lines and pipes are a thing of the past. They were integrated into roads, so roads will transfer power and water automatically.  Its a pretty brilliant concept.  And the biggest thing. The BIGGEST, most amazing part that I’ve seen so far, is that everything isn’t on a flipping grid anymore!!  You can actually create diagonal roads, curved roads.  Its what I’ve always dreamed of in SimCity!  I seriously can’t wait to play this game.

Biggest downside I’ve come across so far is there’s no release date for a Mac version yet.  I’ll have to suck it up and play it on Windows in BootCamp.  Oh well.

Here’s a gameplay video for you all 🙂
