    I hope this lives up to previous titles in the series. I would like to see:

    A traditional Simcity mode but also a more complex mode to make it challenging.
    Larger maps so that the city is not defined by square boundaries.

    Hey, you know what would be cool? If the comment system on this site could actually thread. You know, like if I replied to someone it would actually be indented below their comment and all that?

    Is that a Launch Arco in the upper right corner at around 1:07? ohmans I want this game.

    Honestly I liked the Sim City 3000 soundtrack a lot, 2000's was good too.
