Its about time! I was sure that Maxis gave up after the Sim City Societies flop. And Cities XL has been doing well in the absence of a new Sim City game. All I can say is Sim City is one of my favorite and first games. I will be very happy if they bring it back and do it right.

Playing Cities XL or Sim City Societies is like playing a platformer after playing Mario for years and years. It's okay but it's not quite the same. There's a certain level of polish and... sparkle missing.

While neither my speakers nor my ears are apparently that discerning (I can't really hear a difference between that Youtube playlist and the FLACs), I do like the music, despite not having the added feeling of nostalgia most of you probably do have.

Anything bad I have ever said about Maxis.
Let us just forget that.

Let us just forget that now.

Also, their new logo rocks.

I'm not judging anything until we know more. We've heard so very little, as of yet.

In both those video descriptions it says "SimCity is an online city building simulation game from Maxis Studios.". That kind of worries me.
Also, in the trailer and the 'Insider's Look', they talk about plunking down buildings like in Societies, instead of designating zones like in other SimCity games. I hope that's just for special buildings, and not for everything.

Other than that, the trailer looks great, and I'm interested in the game :)

Hope it's more like Sim City 3 rather than 4+
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'll make sure all of our cities are covered in a nice healthy smog, some toxic waste and with the occasional acid rain.
It will be paradise!
