    So PC gamer posted a story about a leaked 11 minute video for SimCity beta. It was removed, but I found it elsewhere.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HlYWk7ahIA

    If that's busted by the time you read this, I saved a copy locally, you can DL it here: www.jffgaming.com/files/SimCity_Beta_Tutorial.mp4

    Anyway, I've always loved Sim City and will be playing it for sure. You can link your cities to friends, etc.... so if you're planning on playing we should all play together. =)

    Ohh, if you're interested in the beta, you can sign up now: http://www.simcity.com/en_US/beta/info

    I can't believe I remembered my Origin ID on the first try. I signed up. Never played SimCity!

    I was a huge fan of SC1 and SC2k, played SC3 quite a bit as well. Ever since then I've been disappointed in their game design for the series... SC4 was kind of crappy and SC Societies was a huge deviation, though quite good.

    I'll sign up for beta just to get the chance to demo the game. ;)


    I liked what I saw in the video!

    I have always liked Simcity games. I have not preordered yet. Trek if you bought it already. Let me know. I signed up for beta a long time ago.

    Nope, I haven't actually bought it yet, I will when the time comes or there's some sort of deal. However as it's on Origin... I'm not expecting one.

    Wow, I actually forgot about SimAnt!

    Good to see more people having interest in the game. Should be fun!

    I signed up for the beta a couple months ago and never heard back. This is one I'll buy for sure.

    Okay, I caved and bought SimCity today from GreenManGaming. Anybody else pre-order it? Do we get to build next to each other if we want to? I don't know how it works, I have one hour of playtime :(

    yes you can invite or be invited to regions. $60 is a lot for that game I think. I would like to buy it myself But I am afraid that you are going to have to pay for most DLC.

    I got it for $7 off from GreenMan...so that's at least some kind of discount, still over 50 though. I'm watching videos on it now to get a better idea.

    Sili and me played it on the last beta day. She created a JFF Gaming region and I was able to join it. I'm not entirely sure how many people can be in a region though... if you find out that information it would be good to know.

    Was kind of cool to watch our cities interact without us specifically having to do things (although you can/do specify many things). But apparently I needed some more fire trucks, so her town sent them to help combat my large amount of fires, my city was sending hers my extra garbage trucks, etc.

    So... at the very least both her and myself will be playing it.

    I watched some beta videos last week. It appears there are a number of regions to pick from with different terrain and city slots. They only played in the little region, that's been in almost all of the promo footage, so I can't really say if the others support more than 3 players.
