If your $50 copy of SimCity is lying unused, would a $9 piece of DLC adding a few balloons get you playing again?

Of course not, but that's the plan at EA regardless, the new "Airships" set adding two new types of hot air balloon park and an airship mass transit option. That's it. For $9.

Believe it or not, the video above is not parody. It is a real promotional piece.

I really want to write something nice about the game, since Kirk beat me to the game's sole bright spot, its wonderful soundtrack. Maybe one day I'll get the chance.
