SimCity Trailer Is A Disasterpiece 


Electrical grids? Meh. Highways? Fleh. Civic infrastructure? Poo. If you're a real SimCity fan, you know it's all about the disasters that the apathetic world throws your way. You know that something will come, and that you'll need to deal with it. It's inevitable. If it's a worry you've had to relate to your psychiatrist, then you need worry no more. This is what you've been waiting for: a faux 'olde' style trailer showing off the various ways that your Simulated City (5) could be destroyed, and the various avenues open to you to protect it.

Mostly it seems like you actually do need the civic infrastructure to help recover. So build fewer statues to your awesomeness so you can have more hospitals and police. I have an idea for SimCity DLC: the game's always online, so how about a metagame where players are allowed to unleash disasters on others cities? I'm not all that bothered about making things, but if you gave a me a button and said I had 50 disasters to do with what I pleased, why I'd wear that button down until it only existed in two dimensions. And this is what I'd do.

It's still scheduled for February of 2013. Barring an invasion by UFOs.
