An intrepid filmmaker going by the name of TDB Games has created a rousing 24-minute movie called “Yoko” about the destruction of a small city. It’s very good.
Cities: Skylines is a game that I keep going back to. Even though new and interesting content packs come out for it regularly, I find myself drawn to the scale of the game more than its content. I mean, it’s big, and flying through it set to a calm soundtrack is the ultimate soothing experience.
I was happy enough with Cities: Skylines when it was just about building cities, but it’s now adding the ability to construct giant theme parks as well, so cool, why not.
A dad and his 7-year-old son are creating a city together. Separated by a river, they build in isolation. One day, maybe, each side will connect up with the other.
I love a good Cities: Skylines build, and this cinematic flythrough of a recreation of the Federal Territory of Putrajaya in Malaysia is something special to see. There’s real care taken by the creator, Gilbert Plays, to make something that models the feeling of an actual city. While I’m no expert on Putrajaya (and so…
A solid Cities: Skylines build is always an amazing sight, and this timelapse of a Mediterranean-style castle is a chill viewing experience.
Cities: Skylines is getting a “green cities” expansion for PCs later this year. There’ll be 350 new environmentally-friendly assets, new services, new scenarios and policy options, and more. Here’s a trailer.
The worst part of games like Cities: Skylines is that you can make an awesome city you can’t actually live in. Cities: Skylines new Concerts add on won’t let you live in the city of your dreams, but it brings the game a little closer to the things that make cities fun to live in.

Cities: Skylines’ Mass Transit DLC releases May 18th. So much fun stuff! Here’s a trailer.
Cities: Skylines will get a mass transit expansion that adds cable cars, ferries, blimps, and new commuter hubs. I’m excited for anything that puts less cars on the disastrous roads I can’t keep myself from building.

Cities: Skylines—Natural Disasters is available today. This DLC adds disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and meteors, as well as a Scenario editor and a radio station with in-game music. My poor road planning is usually all the torment my citizens need, but this looks pretty fun too.
A Cities Skylines player just debuted his crowning achievement: a spot-on 1:1 recreation of San Francisco. It’s just like the real thing, all the way down to individual neighborhood and building placements. There’s just one teensy little problem: massive death tolls.
