Sim City: An Interview with Stone Librande - Venue
“We realized… our game was going to be really boring if it was proportional in terms of parking lots.” A real shame. An opportunity to make people notice just how much a car-reliant society needs for parking. Feels like whitewashing. (via @timoarnall)

I keep meaning to watch some of these SimCity playthrough videos, as I find it fascinating… but if I was wondering how I’d justify the time required to play the game, I’m not sure I can justify watching other people play it.

Hands On: SimCity | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
The new SimCity can only be played if it can connect to EA’s servers. This review (towards the end), and many of the comments, worry about that.
