So just in case you didn't get a chance to try out the new Simcity beta the first go around. Maxis and EA have just announced that there will be another round of beta testing! With the new round slated to start on February 16th.
Details are scarce in regards to if it will be the exact same, 1-hour playtime constrained beta as the first but atleast some people will have a chance to try it out if they didn't get a chance last time.
I played in the closed beta about a week or so ago and got a number of hours with the game. I thought it was awesome. Very well done and true to the original Simcity's (good thing) while still being able to offer a new, graphic overhauled, up to date take on the series for a new installment. Saying i'm excited would be an understatement.
I really like simcity, but I have decided to pass on anything that has EA attached to it.
Which is a shame, because I wanted to try out the new version of the game. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
