Punching Beta: Though SimCity may come across as a fun, strategic game of managing your city to fame, we all have to come to terms with the truth of the matter: SimCity is a game of kings. When it comes to the building and running of something as massive as a city, especially a SimCity, the upmost care and consideration needs to be applied. No more listening to thrash metal while your sims slave in burning factories, no more leaving kids to the streets and parks malfested by the cretins of society (homeless, FYI). No, today we dust off our crowns and mink-sweaters. Today we rise as Mayors.
