PortsCenter with Ben Paddon is quickly becoming on of my favorite new YouTube shows about gaming. PortsCenter is essentially a review show but focuses on a particular game port and all the ports and history surrounding it. Sometimes the port is bad and sometimes it's good and in the case of the Super Nintendo SimCity port it's transcendent. In this episode Ben talks about that and how the SNES SimCity port was created by Nintendo under license from Maxis, something I didn't know before.

Well Rock, Paper, Shotgun has released an interview with an EA dev who remained anonymous that CONFIRMS always on DRM is NOT a necessity for... Read All

Maxis let loose an awesome 10 minute overview of how to play the upcoming Simcity slated for release in 2013. I wasn't too interested in this new version of Simcity after playing Simcity 4 and being thoroughly disappointed with it. I am likewise not excited about having to play it through EA's origin service. VIVA LA STEAM MIS AMIGOS!

That all said... The video is really well done and I want to play the game in that video. One reason Simcity 4 was such a disappointment was because it was so bloody complicated.
