SimCity: Cheetah speed returns, Mac release June 11

It's kind of like the game I bought, now.

"Do you like to play with Cheetah Speed?" SimCity's Facebook asks.

"No, I prefer not having basic functionality that keeps the game from being boring and painfully slow!"

But for the rest of you, you may be happy to hear that cheetah speed -- the fastest of speeds that keeps things progressing -- has returned to the game after removal due to server stress during launch month. Additionally, Mac users can see what all the fuss is about minus the launch issues (one can hope) on June 11. The game will be available on the Origin store.

On a positive note, I think it's pretty sweet that PC and Mac users can play together. So, good on you, Maxis!
