Sometime, probably in December, Maxis will be releasing Sim City 4. There is not a great deal of information out there, but it is supposedly going to look really purdy and have a whole bunch of new toys.

I have bought every installment of Sim City and I can say that about no other computer game. It is just a ton of fun and I will surely buy the new version. All I fear is that it will be released for OSX and I'll be forced to have it with me at all times. Oh man, Sim City 4 on the Terrace. Oh yes.
