transportation_city_macreleaseAfter an extremely rocky launch back in March of this year for SimCity, Mac users are now able to purchase and play SimCity. It seems that all the original content from the Windows release is still intact.

From creating and destroying your city how you see fit to the regional play involved with multiplayer.

Personally since the game launched, I never found a reason to jump back into it seeing as requiring a constant connection with servers that couldn’t handle the load, heavily impacted on my play time.

By now all the confusion should be cleared up – James Cameron’s Avatar is not related to the animated TV show. The movie based on the cartoon will be named The Last Airbender and comes out in 2010. You will not see a bald little kid throwing fire around when the Avatar movie is released on December 18.

Instead, James Cameron’s Avatar follows the invasion of humans onto the lush, tropical jungle planet of Pandora to mine a valuable resource. The only problem is, the planet’s 9 foot tall, blue-skinned natives (the Na’vi) aren’t too thrilled at being forced off their land. Hence we get to see lots of flashy epic battles as the two sides clash.

But what about the game? If you’re a jaded cynic like me you’ll have had zero expectations of the movie tie-in. The jerky, low-quality trailer on the Assassin’s Creed 2 disc did nothing to change my opinion.
