It's cold as hell in my office. I'm under a blanket, and I have my feet tucked under my dog. I'm chilled straight through and my nose is running.
But things look quite the opposite in these new Tropico 4 Gold Edition screenshots. The upcoming city maker for Xbox 360 and PC shows an island paradise with tropical trees, sun-drenched mountains, and dancing girls. I feel warmer just thinking about it.
But then I think about the game's Cold War setting. Cold. Cold. And I'm cold again.
Tropico 4 Gold Edition is the standard game and the Modern Times expansion, all in one handy pack. It will be available in stores on November 13.
