    FYI, page two's [h ] tag is close with an [/i ] tag >.>

    I'm looking forward to this game, looks quite like my kind of thing.

    One thing I'd like from a game like this is the ability to do things from my ipad, almost a cloud interaction, but perhaps just menial decision making stuff that I might want/need to do when I'm not at my desktop. It'd be even nicer to have the city in a persistent state, or the option to do so, so it "ran" without being played, kinda like Stronghold Kingdoms does.

    I have a sim city game and I love it but I literally can't get past the tutorial, I always mean to persevere but man I find it hard!
    After exams, i'll see what I can do.
    That price is steep... too steep to see me upgrading.

    I love the look of this, but not the toybox graphics. Jeeze.

    Nice preview, but shame you have not pointed out the need for always on internet as was reported few weeks back.

    While looks good, it seems like D3 you will need an always on internet game to keep in contact with other cities etc

    Liking the look of this. On paper this has always sounded the most boring game IN THE WORLD. Build houses. Factories. Roads. Power lines. Roads. Bus stops.....but it's so ****ing addictive...

    What i'd really like to see in a simcity game is a non linear way to build your city. In that this game, as all the other simcities were, based around a capitalist system. If we could input our own rules somehow and then develop a city instead of sticking with the standard capitalist rules. I realize that would complicate the game a bit but it'd be a much more sophisticated simulation. Because we all know deep down capitalism is deeply flawed don't we ??

    Dumbed down game mechanics -> don't give a **** about prettier graphics or all the fancy simulation tech.

    Looks awful, but then looks aren't everything.
