Life In The Inner City.

The upcoming release, SimCity 4, from Aspyr Media features new simulation and graphics engines, new regional game play and the new ability to track the lives of individual Sims as they go about their daily routine. SimCity 4 is the most realistic, powerful and personal SimCity experience ever.

Right from the start, players experience new God-like powers of creation as they lay the groundwork for their cities by molding mountains, carving valleys, seeding forests and laying rivers. With these new landscape creation features, players can now construct the most realistic metropolis imaginable. Each city a player creates becomes part of an ever-growing tapestry of municipalities that, once connected by transportation networks, share and compete for resources. Depending upon the choices made by a player, this multi-city game play can result in a variety of outcomes within that region. For the first time ever, players can follow a Sim as they go about their life in the city. Players can personalize their Sim and immediately move him or her into any area and watch them experience life in the city, first hand. Is he or she enjoying a happy existence in an urban utopia or enduring a futile fight for survival in the inner-city?

If your life is out of control, maybe this will help. ;)

Since the release of the Aspyr Media Newsletter last week, I've had a steady flow of email regarding this game. It's becoming obvious to me that anything with the word "sim" in front of it is very popular these days. So, not being one to let my viewers down, this week is dedicated to SimCity 4. I had fun creating this week's wallpaper using art supplied by EA Games. I was quiet pleased with the end result. I simply entitled it "City Life" and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.

Until then...
