    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I read about this game last week and I am definitely interested. The last SimCity game tried to move away from the building of the city and add in more of the social aspects and the reviews were not good (I haven't played it as my computer is not up to par).

    I still want to check out CitiesXL though which supposedly combined the best parts of SimCity with what the new IBM game is trying to do. But I have to wait until I get a new computer... Damn my 512mb of RAM!
