Sim City anyone else looking forward to it?
I don't know if I've become a freak or something. But I really, -really- want to play the new Sim City.
I got into the beta to try out the game, just play around with some mechanics and junk. It was fun, I didn't pay much attention to it. Built up a little town, had some income coming in, built a few... YOUR TIME IS UP? WHAT!? Okay... that's OK, was fun while it lasted.
Exited the game, ended up thinking about it constantly. What if I built a small town USA with just dirt roads? What if I organized my industry in a way that it won't pollute my town? How can I make my roads as efficient as possible?
Logged back in, got depressed that the server status was down due to stability issues. Logged back in after it was fixed, played through the playtime, logged out, logged back in, started a new town again from scratch.
Every time you log out you need to start your sandbox town from the very beginning. Every time I tried different variations, different roads, different layouts, I even attempted to have a huge circular main area. Unfortunately City Hall kept getting placed at a weird angle and I didn't like the aesthetic of it.
Oh man, I can upgrade my clinics? My Schools? You mean I don't have to build new buildings to satisfy demands? I can just upgrade the old ones?
Wait... I can trade with other towns and actually be a goods PROVIDER?
Time ran out again, DANG IT! I almost finished upgrading.
That was my experience with the Sim City beta and I can't wait for the game to come out. Anyone else sick in the head like me or am I the only one?
