SimCity trailer teaches disaster preparedness

Three cities enter, one city leaves

Electronic Arts has released a new trailer for SimCity, demonstrating the risks associated with failing to adequately prepare a city for natural disasters. You may watch it at your leisure.

I am not the sort of person who should be trusted with designing and managing a city. I treat SimCitizens like the little LEGO men who would populate the castles I built growing up — with the express purpose of later throwing them against the wall to see the explosion of color. I’m the sort of dude who’d make an agreement with the UFO to ensure the destruction of their race, just as long as I got to watch it from the cockpit.

What can I say? I like the pretty lights.
