Simcity has a rough launch for Mac but hey it's still simulating cities eh?
Electronic Arts recently released the new SimCity for Mac and there have been a bunch of snags for the long-awaited title. Anyway here are some FAQs.
Simcity players are looking at a bunch of different approaches to simulating the quanta of city life than SimCity 4 -- and there is more realism to quite a bit of the modeling, if also perhaps a Ayn Randian design philosophy in the background.

Story from January.
On the main thread here we see how the new game develops: SIM City 5 - Actual Strategy Discussion - AnandTech Forums
Anyway it will be cool to see what happens, and hopefully popular pressure will push back the bad DRM policy imposed by EA. We'll see - and indeed if they get their act together maybe more fun simulators will get released like so many years ago, the heyday of independent Maxis development and SimAnt, SimEarth, SimLife, awesome games that I was really into...
