So watch this tutorial to hold you over

Those of you super obsessed with videogame news may have noticed some SimCity reviews are already up. Destructoid was given the same access as others to play the game before release on closed servers, but we're holding our review to properly play through the game on the same real servers that everyone is playing on right now. Expect the official review sometime this week by our very own Josh Derocher.

In the meantime, you should check out this road tutorial EA has put out to learn how to use the new road system. It's not like any of the past Sim City games, and this primer will definitely help you out.

Are you still playing SimCity?! Anyone? Uhhh, well hey if you somehow still are there's going to be new content launching on November 12 in the form of Cities of Tomorrow. As you can guess by that name, you're going to get buildings that are going to look all future like. Sigh. This game had such potential. Maybe I'll give it another shot when this update is released.
