    Sim City 5 (2013) - Sim<parameter: string>

    Out there on the internet, someone has posted images and a somewhat tough-to-read translation of an article about SimCity 5 from German magazine GameStar. Making the reading even more difficult? The translation was first from German to a Spanish website…and then Google-translated from Spanish to English. So…yeah.

    The game is being developed by Maxis, and if the post is to be believed, the game is on course to be released sometime in 2013, apparently only about 30 percent of the way to completion at this point.

    The images, too, aren’t from the game, but are rather concept art stills, since “the current video quality does not meet the requirements of internal—and there is open play as full a level of development. The graphics are polished only towards the end of a high quality development.”

    Got all that? I think it’s saying that the graphics won’t be finished up until after most of the game is done…right?

    Apparently there will be an online competitive component to the game, too, where your city will be able to compete against other players’ online to see which is the most “successful,” at least in terms of productivity and, I guess, lack of crime and monster attacks. “There’s global leaderboards, where everything relates to economic production or raw material players can compete with other players,” producer Kip Katsarelis is quoted as saying. They’d better still have Godzillas is all I care about.

    I'll probably download it and play it every 2 years for 30 minutes like all the previous iterations. Good times.

    If it manages to use the improved (especially the player modded, properly intelligent) traffic system from SC4, but without that god awful region/job demand system (and lack of challenge maps), basically at least everything else from SC3, this will be glorious.

    It's nice to see Cities XL finally applied boot to ass and got them moving.

    Hmm.. I thought Maxis got shut down a long time ago, news to me. Can't wait to see if this turns out to be real and how it will turn out to play, if it's anything like SC3 which I feel is probably the best in the line up of SC games than I can't wait!

    Maxis is still alive within the collective hivemind of EA.

    How many decades has it been since the last? Can't say I'm a huge fan of the series but it always passed time and am actually looking forward to this. Have been keeping my eyes out for a new one for years.

    Sim City has provided me with a lot of spontaneous entertainment before. Hope this will be good.

    Over/Under on how long it takes for a Repub to start yelling that this game is liberal propaganda?

    I'm sure my girlfriend will probably pick this game up. She really enjoys the Sims games.

    Been waiting forever for a new Sim City, especially with Shitty Cities XL reminding me just how badly an unoptimized game will run on any rig.

    Bring it on, Maxis. I've been waiting for you.

    <3 me some Sim City, hope they bring it to consoles as well as PC. Or I could just get a modern PC, too, I suppose.

    Wait, people actually played Sim City games instead of just loading pre-built cities and forcing disasters?

    I actually just bought simcity 2000 from gog to play it again. wasted many hours as a kid playing that game, but 3 and 4 just never had the same feel for me. Hope this new one will be fun.

    I built my cities in SimCity 2000. Then flew around with the Apache helicopter in SimCopter launching missiles at buildings.

    Does Maxis still put excessive, tired Llama jokes in everything they make?

    Mmmm, I really enjoyed the SNES Sim City, Since then, never really played the new ones. Became too complicated for me. Its the simplicity in the original Sim City i enjoyed.

    Still, Could see this being fun.
