Word is that SimCity plays better these days. But it's safer to just wait for a sequel and not step back into early 2013's messy metropolis-builder, right? (Well, "smallish-city-builder," if we're being accurate, but you get the idea.)

I could/should wait it out and write off the current game quite easily if this forthcoming Cities of Tomorrow expansion didn't actually look really cool.

Our pals at Gizmodo got a preview of the November expansion this week and... hmm....trying...not...to...get....my...hopes...up. Butit'dbeniceifitwasreallygood. There I said it. Or typed it, at least. Eternally hopeful, that's me!
